The Butler-Cape House is pre-1850 and has been painstakingly restored downstairs. Upstairs, we lovingly renovated so 21st century people would not feel cramped. The house is rich in Cherokee, Civil War and Moonshine Wars history. Its chimneys were crafted by the Cherokees before the Removal, leading many to believe that the first part of our home was indeed built and lived in by the Cherokees. All rates include a hearty, delicious breakfast. Menu changes daily and we accommodate special diets.
This beautiful upstairs room has three original windows facing north and east. The glass is bubbled and wavy, and the floors are polished and original. It features a unique craftsman vaulted ceiling, original art and antiques. The double bed is a white-washed four poster, and an Arts and Crafts antique day bed creates a cozy place to read. Bath a few steps away in a central hall. It may be shared.
$105 + tax per night.
