For those who are looking for the ultimate place to spend a quiet weekend or vacation where you wake up every morning with a spectacular view of the Smoky Mountains and Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Gracehill Bed & Breakfast may be just what you are looking for. The Gracehill Bed & Breakfast is the highest home in the county and is the brainchild of owner/innkeeper Kathleen Janke.
Years in the Making
Gracehill Bed & Breakfast began as Kathleen’s dream to build a home high on a mountain that would give her an amazing view of the surrounding mountains. For many months Kathleen hiked through the hills in search of the perfect piece of property upon which she could bring her dreams to reality. It took two years to find the right place and eventually she found 11 acres that suited her needs perfectly.
The Adventure Begins
Now that Kathleen had the perfect piece of property to build on, the adventure truly began. When you stop to look at the road leading up to the B&B, you get a sense of how hard it must have been for the various contractors to haul the required building materials into the site of Kathleen’s new home. The final result is a home where guests are spoiled beyond their wildest imaginations with a whirlpool tub, spectacular views, romantic candlelit dinners, and gourmet meals.
It took Kathleen over 2 1/2 years to go from concept to opening the doors at Gracehill Bed & Breakfast. The B&B opened just in time for Thanksgiving in 2000 with the vast majority of all building materials sourced locally. This includes the cedar shake siding, the mountain dry stack stone walls, and more.
Something Tasty and Unique
One of the more unique features of the Gracehill Bed & Breakfast is their ability to provide their guests with a picnic meal they can take on the go. The picnic can be packed in a cooler, a backpack, or packaged so that you can eat it on your way home. Your picnic meal comes with your choice of turkey, ham, or beef, a range of popular cheeses, plenty of fruit, your choice of French or French multigrain bread, summer salads right out of the garden, crunchy foods, and of course beverages. There are also vegan options available both for the picnic and in the dining room.
The Perfect Getaway
Whether you desire a quiet place to relax, a romantic place for your honeymoon, or a place to stay that offers a spectacular view, Gracehill Bed & Breakfast is just what you are looking for. Among the more unique features they offer is distilled water for those guests who use a CPAP machine to help them sleep at night. All rooms are beautifully furnished with antiques and feature amenities such as flat screen televisions, fireplaces, Blu-Ray DVD players, more.
