Gracehill Bed and Breakfast, two and half years in the making, was newly opened Thanksgiving of 2000. Imaginative and innovative this Smoky Mountain Inn is a luxury, romantic accommodation. Without using a lot of adjectives we are hopeful the facilities will meet and hopefully exceed your expectations.

The exterior is cedar shake siding and 200 tons of mountain dry stack stone. The interior is light filled with floor to ceiling windows. Gracehill Bed and Breakfast is decorated with an eclectic blend of antiques and contains tin ceilings, stacked stone, stained glass, original art, and 12 foot high ceilings are found through out.

The patios are local tumbled marble. The landscaping starts on the approach, winding up the side of Little Round Top Mountain. Other than the 80 bush formal rose garden the landscaping and water features are natural and blend into the woods.

Gracehill has enough covered verandas (2000 sq ft), patios, and gardens for each guest to sit and contemplate life in solitude. The privacy is second only to the view. Although we are in the country there is nothing “country” about upscale Gracehill! Black Tie Class with Blue Jean Comfort…
