The name says it all – Heart & Soul – and the experience was both relaxing and memorable. It was clear from the time we first arrived that our accommodating hosts, Chris and Pam, dedicated tremendous thought, research, and energy before opening this B&B to ensure no detail was overlooked. Their commitment to provide each guest with the ultimate experience was evident in every aspect of the business. The breakfast cuisine was amazing (truly 5 star) complemented by cordial and engaging conversation with our hosts and fellow guests both domestic and international. You certainly won't want to miss the candlelit evenings rocking on the porch with a cool drink in hand. Heart & Soul is conveniently located within walking distance of the charming and quaint downtown area of Mt. Airy where everyone greets you like a long lost friend. The “Patrol Car” tours are a must for any first-time visitors. Definitely looking forward to our next visit !!!
Stellar experience start to finish! Beautiful location, delicious breakfast, and perfect relaxing getaway. We stayed in No. 6 - the Yadkin Valley Honeymoon Suite. This was the first 24 hour stretch my wife & I have been alone together as a couple since our son was born nearly 20 months ago. We couldn't imagine a more restorative experience, especially with so much jacuzzi time! Easy to check in & out. Thank you for the miraculous relaxation we had here that we now take home to our toddler, refreshed to continue our parenting journey...!
I would sooooooo give this unique and fabulous and warm and inviting bed and breakfast TEN stars if I could! Listen, people: if you are within 25 miles of this place, GET THERE! And try to stay overnight! Christy is the BEST innkeeper on the planet. She does not miss a trick! My husband and I celebrated our anniversary and his birthday and she made our stay so very special! We can't wait to find an excuse to go back! I love, love, love, love every single thing she did for us...and our accommodations were TOPS!! In the words of Tina Turner: SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!!
My wife & I got in to the habit of staying in bed & breakfasts years ago. They simply have more personality than hotels. We've stayed in many over the years. When we stumbled across Heart & Soul, little did we know how it would change our view of the B&B experience! Folks, it just doesn't get any better than this. Chris & Pam immediately make you feel welcome. It's not very long before you feel like you're staying in a friends home. The attention to detail they've shown in the creation of this fantastic home is just amazing. We've lodged here 3 times already and each time, we discover another beautiful detail overlooked on a prior visit. Then there's the breakfast... Your grandma didn't make a breakfast this good. No really ~ I'm serious! I can't say it's "5 Star" - 10 star is more appropriate! Book a couple of nights here, you won't be sorry!!!
This is our 4th trip to Pilot Knob Inn and love how peaceful and relaxing this place is. The cabin is a perfect get away for my husband and I to just chill, play some golf, plus the bonus is the closeness to Mt. Airy, love Mayberry Days. The service is great and food is cooked to order and so much of it! Cabin is clean and cozy, with a really comfortable bed. Also love the two person jacuzzi tub. Already reserved our next visit as soon as we got home. Dave & Tammy Drown
I travel a lot for my job and have never been motivated to write a review before, but my stay at Christy's warrants praise. The thing I enjoyed most about the house was the combination of antique and modern in the decorating style. I enjoy bed and breakfast lodging, but often the homes feel a bit stuffy and dated. The owners have done an amazing job capturing the timeless beauty of an older home, while also keeping the atmosphere feeling fresh and alive. Christy is a master of customer service. The abundance of beverages and snacks after a stressful day's work were perfect and the system for ordering breakfast was both personalized and effortless. The grounds were lovely and the inviting screened porch created the perfect setting to start my day. I would highly recommend this place to anyone in the area.
Christy's Inn is a beautiful place to stay. The attention to detail and the service were outstanding. Christy was warm and welcoming. She was familiar with the area and recommended a great winery to visit. We enjoyed our time there and would definitely return.
This is what the bed and breakfast experience is all about. We have stayed in B&Bs and small inns all over Europe, the UK, and the US, and we cannot recall innkeepers as caring, considerate, and accommodating as Pam and Chris. Almost as soon as we met them, we felt like old friends. They have rescued a dilapidated old home and transformed it into a beautiful B&B filled with perfect furniture and furnishings. Their location is unmatched for a visit to Mount Airy – less than a five-minute walk to downtown and a short drive to everything else the area has to offer. The rooms are beautiful, and the gourmet breakfasts they served us were nothing short of superb. Definitely a five-star experience. The bottom line – we will never stay anywhere else on future visits to Mount Airy, and we will tell all our family and friends visiting there the same thing.
My boyfriend and I loved this place, it is so peaceful here and relaxing. The ladies that run this place are fantastic, the breakfast is amazing and everything is cooked to order. You are right down the street from Pilot Mts. The lake view is amazing with the Mts, in the background! We will be back very soon!
Wonderful house which truly does represent the heart and soul of the innkeepers. Great high ceilings and spacious rooms. Chris and Pam are great hosts and were very accommodating with dietary restrictions providing a wonderful breakfast each morning. When we were snowed in and most restaurants were closed, they also extended their hospitality to provide us with a delicious dinner. We look forward to our next visit in the near future.
i been trying to stay but i have a therapy dog poodle and always a little short please pray i could win another cabin i would love a hot tub i love the place just by looking and we live real close and cant ride far god bless you for reading this i never won nothing thanks to a nice place where happiness is GOD BLESS!
Our children gave us gift certificates to any Bed and Breakfast...and after searching and looking at many B&B I came across the Pilot Knob B&B.....we stayed in cabin 2 and it was absolutely perfect. If you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life this is the place for you. Time seems to stand still for a while. It ended up being very cold but that made to fire my husband built in the fireplace even more beautiful. Just sitting there listening to the popping and crackling of the fire was very peaceful. Breakfast was great.. the owner Jennifer was so nice and her helper was also. We will be going back and we will stay in another one of the cabins if not # 2 again......We loved it.....so glad i came across it while surfing the web....I passed up all the B&B in the big cities and chose this little cabin in the woods...so glad I did :) Looking for something to do...go to Mt.Airy and learn more about the Andy Griffith Show. :) David and Sara :)
If you like a rustic look and feel, but want to enjoy the amenities of a modern place, this is the place for you. We stayed in Cabin #1 and the view of Pilot Knob from near our cabin is amazing! The cabin was clean and cozy. The rustic look was nice, but we had central heat and hot water. So, all the amenities of home. My wife and I spent our days in Mount Airy, but Winston-Salem is a short drive as well. The breakfast is absolutely amazing! Great food and great company from the owner and her cook. They make it so easy to like this place. I would definitely go again!
My husband and I spent our wedding night at Pilot Knob Inn Bed&Breakfast and loved it. I was disappointed that I was not able to have a long honeymoon but when I arrived I felt like I was in heaven. The cabin was so clean and beautiful I wish I could live in it. My husband and I returned for our three year anniversary and was just as special as my wedding night. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this place to anyone.
Great secluded property. Hosts are friendly and accommodating. Perfect location. One of the most relaxing trips I have taken in many years. With 13 rooms/cabins we want to go back every year and stay in a different one each time. Already planning our Fall foliage trip for next year if not sooner.
Locale is nice, room is large, bed was comfy, innkeeper was pleasant. But, these should be givens, yes? Bath was wretchedly small (in ours, and in several other rooms we inspected). Plumbing was reversed (hot/cold) in shower and staff initially refused to inspect ("we suggest you....blah blah"). Toilet and sink plumbing all needed immediate attention and repair. TV MUCH too small for location. Food selection often unhealthy, and basically unchanged four mornings running. Coffee was supermarket grade. No access to refrigerator on the floor ("WE are a BnB" was the explanation). Surly staff, four mornings running. A/C controls date from the '50s, it is either off on on; very nearly freeze or fry. The best feature probably is, the Tavern (five stars) directly across the street. Good thing, it's a 20 minute walk to any place else to eat.
Historic building, originally the home of Augustus T. Zevely in the Moravian settlement of Salem, NC, houses an delightful B&B inn. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, comfortable and quiet. The only meal is a light but satisfying breakfast buffet. The Tavern across the street has excellent lunch and dinner menus. .The Inn is within a short walk of all historic attractions and the outstanding Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts. Definitely worth a trip.
My girlfriend and I made last minute plans to stay at the Pilot Knob Inn and I have to say, It was wonderful. The cabin was beautiful. The management was great! Everything was so perfect. It was our first time staying, but definitely won't be our last. We are going to come back every chance we get and we are going to stay in the same cabin, every time. Couldn't of had it any better! -Jesse Holcomb
I surprised my wife with a stay at Pilot Knob Inn for our 10th wedding anniversary. It was an excellent stay worth every penny. The staff are friendly. The room is awesome. I can't wait to get back. I would and have recommended Pilot Knob to all my friends. can't wait to go back!!!
Nestled at the base of Pilot Knob Mountain is the Pilot Knob Inn Bed & Breakfast. We spent two lovely nights there this week (end of Sept.). The Inn has several log cabins (100 year old tobacco barns) with hot tubs, fire places, central heat, air conditioners and Wifi. We stayed in the Love Shack. Very comfortable and cozy. We spent time shopping and sightseeing in Mt.Airy, NC (inspration for Mayberry, RFD and Andy Griffith TV series) and in Pilot Mountain, NC (Mount Pilot in the series). Spent one afternoon touring "Mayberry " attractions: Andy Griffith Museum, Walley's Service Station, Floyd's Barbershop, Opie's Candy Store, and ate at Snappy Lunch. Later we enjoyed time in the jacuzzi, sat on the front porch and read in the rocking chairs then watched Andy Griffith videos in front of a cozy fireplace. Nice breakfasts were supplied each morning: fresh fruit, Belgian waffles, sausage, bacon ,ham and eggs to order (8:30 - 9:30AM). Wonderful, restful time!
No one does it better. The breakfast is unbelievablle. You want it, they have it. We have stayed in three different suites and been coming nearly eight years. Jen and Kathy are very friendly. They give you your privacy. It is always clean. A nice weekend or week long get away with someone you love. Peter & Debbie, Wilson, NC
We loved almost everything about the cabin. It was rustic and charming with all the amenities. We were very happy that our cabin was pet friendly; made our stay much more relaxed because we could have our pet with us. It is very quite and peaceful and could not ask for nicer folks that run the place. The food was fantastic. We were a little disappointed that the boats, paddles and life jackets were not of better quality -- we only saw one life jacket available and most of the paddles were either broken or did not look safe so we opted not to go out on the lake and fish; that was a bit of a disappointment because that was one of the reasons we stayed there . Overall it was a great stay and we really enjoyed it. I would suggest that the cabin we stayed in have an overall good dusting, the lights and shades were quite dusty and also, the room could stand to be aired out after each guest to let some of the wood smoke out. Although it is to be expected with a wood burning fireplace, the smell was overwhelming when we first got there. We opened the windows and sprayed febreeze (that I always travel with) and the odor subsided almost completely. Again it was overall a great visit!!!!!!
We will be coming for our third visit this weekend but this time we are bringing some our closest friends. Hoping to have a surprise party for my husband and introduce our friends to the serenity and hospitality we found here!
This was our second visit to the inn. We first visited 2 years ago. I love the tobacco barn cabins. It's a great escape from the hustle of everyday life. Very peaceful and romantic not to mention the fantastic breakfast! Jennifer and Kathy are very welcoming. Can't wait to return!!
We had a wonderful time at "The Love Shack " log cabin this past Thurs night. It was so cozy and comfortable, cheesecake & cider just perfect... breakfast out of this world! All homemade and delicious. Even their dog was so friendly- is he a dingo/Australian shepard ? My husband thought he was "fake" because he was so perfect ... just like everything else at your place.We will definitely be back. We hope to be back soon ! Dawn & Ron of Hooksett NH
My partner decided after 2yrs it was time to exchange rings. We had to plan this at Pilot Knob Inn. Jennifer and Kathy were great in helping us plan. Most of it was a surprise, and Jennifer was such a big help, from flowers to letting us check in early. Was the most wonderful weekend! We have been going to Pilot Knob for a year now, and just can't even imagine staying anywhere else. It has become our home away from home.
