Just a brief summary of our stay at the historic Eureka Inn. This historic place has been modernized so that no necessity is lacking. But what really makes this Inn so appealing is the kindness and hard work of Blake and Katelyn. They have raised the bar for every host and hostess in every inn or b&b across America. They...

This was my first time to stay here and it is amazing from start to finish: complete hospitality from start to end! Blake met me at the door and Katelyn was waving from the window. The place smells so clean and fresh for an inn that dates to 1797. No dirt to be found... The rooms are charmingly appointed with...

We stayed for three nights in August as part of our trip to Bristol Motor Speedway for the NASCAR night race weekend. We arrived in the evening on a Thursday, then spent Friday and Saturday (and Sunday due to rain) at the track. As a consequence we were not at the Inn very much at all. However, while we were...

June 14, 2016 Handsome two story, with balcony, historic Inn, dating, in part, to 1797. Good parking, reasonably priced, coffee, soft drinks & snacks available 24 hours, modern & clean restroom, excellent breakfast. Blake & Katelyn are exceptionally accommodating hosts. Well worth the visit to this inn and historic main street. Prefer such historic inns & hotels.

The Historic Eureka Inn does everything right! Innkeepers Blake and Katelyn are gracious and accommodating (you'll love them). The inn itself is located on Main Street (a perfect location in Jonesborough), and is tastefully decorated and charming. Our party reserved the Mitchell Room and the Russell Room. Both were very nice. They offer a full hearty breakfast, and happily accommodate...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hotel is obviously old; carpeted floors creaked, but for us, it added to the charm. Innkeepers are attentive and keep the place very clean. Breakfast was good. Best of all, this B&B is well located in the middle of town across from the storytelling building within walking distance of everything.

Others have rated this hotel excellent, but for us, there were a few flaws. The current innkeepers, Blake and Katelyn, try hard to please and reach that mark most of the time. Our room was very nice, just as described. Blake was very accommodating as we arrived early around 11 and he let us check in early. We had friends...

We stayed at the Historic Eureka Inn while in Jonesborough for a family wedding. We greatly enjoyed the property, and had many places to gather as a family to socialize. One highlight was the front porch with the rocking chairs! We spent hours there watching the world go by. The hotel is also convenient to everything in downtown Jonesborough, and...

My wife and I just spent an absolutely wonderful weekend at the Historic Eureka Inn, a quaint, beautiful bed and breakfast in the middle of an amazing historic district in Jonesborough, Tenn. Blake and Katelyn Yarbrough are wonderful people/cooks/innkeepers who make you feel at home from the time you make your reservations until you unfortunately have to leave. The townspeople...

Katelyn and Blake were so accommodating. Enjoyed my stay and will return to the quaint town of Jonesborough! I enjoyed the breakfast provided it was a fresh attitude in such an historic area. Would like to return in the fall.
