Built in 1918 as a single family home along the Tennessee river and adjacent to what is known now as the University of Tennessee. The home was converted to student apartments in 1954. Many of our guests now tell us stories dating back to the time when they lived here while attending the Engineering College of the University. The building was converted to a quaint European style Bed and Breakfast Inn during the 1982 World's Fair and has been operating ever since as the unique downtown Inn.
A small yellow canopy and a pair of antique lanterns are the only indications on the street, a descrete understatement chosen to attract an elite clientele. All 15 guest rooms were carefully setup with distinguished modern bathrooms, most feature sunken mirrored tubs, Jacuzzi's or roman marble tubs. Keeping the guests comfort as a top concern and answering to todays travelers in our renovation this year, we've added direct dial telephones with data ports, cable TV's and individual climate controls in all our rooms complimenting the all antique and reproduction furnishings at the Inn. Amenities in the guest rooms include hair dryers, environment friendly shampoo and conditions, current issue magazines.
Among some of the services that we offer our guests are: Complimentary full breakfast, evening reception, morning coffee brought to your room with your wake up call, and nightly turn down service.
Located in quite and historic Maplehurst park with ample free on premise parking, guests can walk to many of Knoxville's finest restaurants, any downtown building or venue, and to the river front development. Please call us or e-mail us for directions and area map.
