One of the first residences built in Blue Ridge back in 1890, the three story home sits in the middle of downtown, steps from the train depot. The Victorian home has seen several major renovations over the past 133 years and now stands as a testament to the merging of past and present, town and country, refined and wild, sociable and cozy. We are steps to all of the restaurants, shops, parks, bars and great experiences that bring folks to Blue Ridge from all over the world. Guests and visitors alike can take advantage of Mountain Mama’s Coffee Lounge as well as Porch & Parlor Curiosity Shop, both operating on site in the 6k square foot boutique hotel with a Victorian ancestry.
