Historic Interest

The Inn began as a small mountain cabin which was expanded into a family home by the McKinneys, the Piersons, and the Cleavelands. In 1961, it was bought by Irene Cole from Florida, reoriented on the property, and completely renovated into a tourist home. John & Florence Lupoli from Florida bought it in 1972 and operated it until 1984, when it was sold to Chris & Donna Alley from Atlanta who turned it into a bed and breakfast.
