We had a great stay in the Orient Express room at the Whistle Stop Inn for WCU family weekend. Wonderful location right on the Main Street of charming Dillsboro. Our room had a very comfortable king bed and I was a little worried about the bathroom in the hall but it was very private and no big deal at all. Kate left snacks and waters in the breakfast room area at all times of the day. There were guests in 2 of the other rooms but we never knew they were there. Wonderful place to sit on the porch and people watch. There are some good restaurants in walking distance and we enjoyed live music at Lee's on the Depot. We will be back next year.

The Whistle Stop Inn is just adorable. It was clean, comfy, beautifully decorated, and included a darling parlor and kitchenette with breakfast food and snacks. The porch was also wonderful for a late-night picnic. We walked to great shops and galleries.

Noelle, thank you so much for your kind words, and thank you again for the decorating advice. I am going to work on some painting projects when I shut down for the winter in January. I hope you'll be back again! Warmest regards, Kate

We loved our stay in the Orient Express room! The location was perfect for paddling the the Tuckaseegee and Nantahala rivers during the day and enjoying the walkable town of Dillsboro in the evening. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the porch swing while sipping our morning coffee. Kate was a wonderful host and we plan to return!

The Whistle Stop Inn is like stepping into the movie Fried Green Tomatoes. The Inn is nestled in a gorgeous garden setting, in a quaint town. Everything is within walking distance. You will experience the lushness of an era long ago. Kate is a fount of information on local sites and happenings. We will be back again soon.

Thank you for those kind words! I truly look forward to your next stay! Fried green tomatoes is one of my favorite movies ever! So that is a true compliment.( And I won't even mention you can get some really great barbecued ribs just across the street!!! )

I'm now retired from careers in both healthcare and writing. I enjoy sharing my home and community with travelers, and learning about people's home life and experiences traveling. I love friendly, quaint towns...the people, the shops, history and warmness of it all! And I love to share my Inn and community so others can discover the beauty of this historic town I live in! I love to go poking through some of the local antique shops and try a new dish from the eclectic menus our many restaurants offer!
