Rook's End is a quaint Country Suite. Very quiet and relaxing. About an hour from both Knoxville and Chattanooga. Visit nearby vineyards and Cherohala Skyway. In our hospitality room enjoy coffee, tea, and fruit.
In the morning we do serve breakfast or if short on time, help yourself to continental breakfast with croissants,fruit,yogurt,milk and cereal, juice, coffee and teas. Peaceful meadows surround the farmhouse. Settle in with a book and tea and listen to the rain on the tin roof. Enjoy!
Artists and guests have used the suite long before we listed it as a bed and breakfast. It has always been a favorite place for our city friends to escape and unwind! Light and airy, high ceilings and lots of windows. There is a private dining table in the suite, but we also keep a hospitality table in the common dining room with coffee, teas, and ice water, refrigerator, fruit and cereals. There is a new gel memory-foam king sized mattress, spacious bathroom with two sinks. Relax on a small glass-enclosed deck that keeps the wind out and the sun in or take a chair to the meadow and gaze at the stars. The hospitality room has a large table for projects if you are an artist. In the morning help yourself to a continental breakfast. (If you walk the primitive trail please be aware of wildlife and branches/nuts as we have many old trees on the property.)
Easy to find, close to I-75. Guests will be encouraged to enjoy the front meadows, the porches and outside seating. There is a little path through the woods to a county road (Runyon Rd.) which is a dead end lane and great for walking or a short jog.
Helpful friendly innkeepers are always ready to answer your questions... or retreat into your private suite where you will not be disturbed. We do have small friendly dogs, but they have their own separate area and kennel...and are not free range. (They will not be visiting with guests and are not noisy...)
Breakfast is self-serve continental style. Enjoy!
We are set up for two guest at a time in the suite. If you would like to BRING an air mattress and your own bedding you can use the suite living room for an extra traveler or two. There would be an additional charge per person of $10.00. The parking lot is paved and has hosted large outdoor events using tents. Because of our location we do not have cable television or WiFi. We do have local television and most of our guest tether to their cell phones for internet.
If you like peace and quiet reflection come to Rook's End! The house is old and we are not set up to host small children at this time. There is no smoking and we have a no pets policy. We provide a continental breakfast at 9:00. Fruit, yogurt, cereals, milk, juice, and rolls. We do not have wheelchair access at this time. We ask that you provide us with an estimated time of arrival in case we need to run errands before you check in... check in is anytime after 4:00 pm. and we don't mind late arrivals.
Please treat our home as you would your own. Thank You!
