We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and furnished well. Great location.....walk to downtown in 1 minute. Breakfast was good, and met some great people. Owner was gracious, although I do feel my friendly southern personality(South Carolina) was not her style:) This quiet B&B is definitely suited towards an older or quiet group.

We have stayed in the Rutherfordton area many times but never at a B and B. We were pleasantly surprised. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was delicious. Close to restaurants and shopping along Main street. We will definitely stay here again.

Our stay here was wonderful. Dan and Lynn, the owners, were kind enough to upgrade us to a beautiful room at the top of the house, with a Jacuzzi tub and a private entrance. We were there due to a death in the family, and it was such a comfort to come home to a homey yet elegant room filled...

This is a wonderful place!! We were visiting the area for a mix of business and relaxation. This fit the bill perfectly - quiet, clean, comfortable rooms with a fantastic breakfast!

Dan and Lynn make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are well done and clean. The breakfast was incredible. Parking can be a challenge. The provide and ornament at the breakfast table for you to decorate. They then will use the ornament for the Christmas tree. This is a fun activity while you wait on breakfast.

My wife and I have traveled the world on business and pleasure. The Carriage House is our roots (she grew up nearby) and we cannot say enough about it.

“THERE WAS 1 ROOM THAT HAD THEIR OWN PORCH, BUT TALKING TO OTHER GUEST WAS WHAT MADE THIS PLACE SO SPECIAL! There was a porch in both houses which sat side by side! Every guest there were very friendly and we had laughs together talking each morning. Each room was where very nice and hard to really pick 1 over the other! The photos at the web site tell as good as a story as any pictures I had as they were about the same”
