Situated in the picturesque Blue Ridge Mountains overlooking the Sautee Valley, Lucille’s Mountain Top Inn & Spa has been named one of “15 Amazing B&Bs Worth a Plane Ticket,”  by Huffington Post Arts & Culture.

“The following U.S. inns are spectacular bases from which to explore national parks, big cities sleepy beach towns and mountain forests,” HuffPo reports, “The inns offer outstanding accommodations in choice locations – but the properties are undoubtedly amazing destinations in themselves.”

For those unfamiliar, Lucille’s is an Arts & Crafts style inn that was designed to show off the views of the beautiful surrounding views through large windows and abundant porches.

The Inn also features a “crows nest “ for a 360-degreee view of the surrounding scenery. Breakfast is included as part of your stay and features French toast, honey fig muffins and sausage spinach casserole, according to Huffington Post.

According to the Lucille’s Inn website, the Inn was founded in 2001 by Lucille Hlavenka and her husband George. They decided on the location after an extensive search of the surrounding area and designed by Mr. Hlvenka, a commercial architect by trade.

In 2006, a full-service day spa was built adjacent to the Inn to provide additional services to vacationers.

Since its opening, the Inn has changed ownership but the current owners continue to honor the original vision as well as continually adding to and improving it.
