Hospitality can be found around the world, but none like you’ll find in the south. Tucked away in small-town Mills River, North Carolina, Bed & Breakfast on Tiffany Hill is a fabulous case in point. Here, the three-course breakfast is gourmet, the 24-hour snacks and drinks are complimentary, and the seven guest abodes are suites, each inspired by a southern town. No wonder that the logo is a pineapple, the classic symbol of friendship and welcome and America’s answer to the olive branch.
No wonder, too, that this lovely inn was written up in Every Day with Rachael Ray, is a recipient of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, is an ILoveInns.com Top Ten Romantic Inn for 2016 and is the South’s first B&B to land a spot in Southern Living’s Hotel Collection. In fact, the inn was largely inspired by the pages of Southern Living. So in addition to basking in the southern hospitality, go and engage in some of that southern living: Visit nearby Asheville’s Biltmore Estate, bird watch or explore in the secret garden. Or, simply take out a book from the inn library and curl up on the seven-layer bed that comes with your suite.
Each inspired by a favorite southern town – such as Lexington, Beaufort or Charlottesville – the seven elegant guest suites aim to reflect the hospitality made famous by the south. With such delights as seven-layer beds, they do a pretty excellent job of it.
Less than 30 minutes from vibrant Asheville, Mills River is the perfect place to experience quaint southern living and explore North Carolina’s great outdoors, like the Pisgah Forest and Dupont State Park’s waterfalls. And, of course, to experience Asheville itself. This town is a special one, housing the Biltmore Estate, which belonged to a Vanderbilt and whose grounds were designed by none other than Central Park’s iconic landscape architect. It’s also got lots of cute boutiques, music venues and breweries for tours – including the new Sierra Nevada Brewery.
How to Get There
My fiance (now wife) searched online for a B&B in which to stay that was in the North Carolina mountains. She narrowed it down to 3 and we both agreed to book with Tiffany Hill after looking at the website. We also saw that they offered a package deal for a getaway wedding. This option suited us well so we also were married there in an "Elopement" ceremony and it was beautiful! Everyone and everything there was top-notch. We would highly recommend this establishment to anyone. They went "over and above" in their service and we have already booked two more stays.
Everything about the Inn on Tiffany Hill is superb, from the owner, the (nearly) new house, the beautiful rooms and accommodations, the three-course breakfasts, the staff, the walking paths on the property, Tux the cat and attention to the details. Selena will not disappoint you, because she is living out her 25 year dream to own and manage a B&B that is first-class!
We just completed our completed our 'Full Southern Tour on Tiffany Hill'. That means we have stayed in all suites on the property. Each suite has it's own personality making the Tour a great experience. Selena and the staff always make certain each stay is a special celebration. We are looking forward to making the rounds again!
I couldn’t wait to get home to write this review. So this was my first time at a Bed and Breakfast and all I can say is there is no way it can get any better than the experience we just had. Omg! Beautiful! Beautiful! House. Service was impeccable. Selena the owner was a very gracious and perfect hostess. The property is gorgeous with walking trails, gardens, hammock, bird watching, so many spots to relax and enjoy nature... I could go on all day. They actaully make you feel at “home”. Room sizes were extra big with lots of space. Huge bathroom. One of my favorite parts was the 3-course gourmet breakfast. Ever had dessert with breakfast? Yes! I had the best peach cobbler with ice cream at 9 in the morning lol and it was delicious. We also had homemade praline encrusted French toast with applewood bacon, fruit with yogurt topped with homemade granola and coconut cream pie for breakfast this morning! Absolutely delicious. I am bad with names but Everybody was very friendly and professional at the same time.
Will definitely be back soon.
From the moment we arrived until we had to leave, this was a dream-come-true place. The accommodations were perfect. The food was exquisite. Wish we could return once a month but, alas, that's not possible. Selena and her staff overlooked nothing!
