 Butler's Best Bed and Breakfast
Near Boone, NC and Watauga Lake

The Iron Mountain Inn B&B of Butler, TN the “town that wouldn't drown” is perched high in the Cherokee National Forest. The original town of Butler is now covered by beautiful Watauga Lake just down the mountain from the Inn.

Designed and built by the owner, Vikki Woods, starting with the road through the trees and rhododendrons in August 1997, the Inn's first guests arrived May 15, 1998. Since that time, the Iron Mountain Inn B&B has enjoyed sharing our home with people from Thailand, Germany, Hungary, Mexico and all across the United States. Although many arrived as strangers they left as friends.

After 17 years, many changes have occurred on top of the mountain, but the “Pampering Perfected” service and the magic of the mountains has not changed since those first guests wound their way to the top of Iron's just gotten better and better.

Winter, Summer, Spring and Fall - in every season a reason to visit the Iron Mountain Inn B&B. In summer, spring and fall, picnics overlooking the mountains and lake, or perhaps you prefer hiking.

homemade cookiesThere are trails on the Iron Mountain Inn property which start right outside the front and back doors of the Inn. One leads you on a two mile hike up and down the mountains returning to the Inn. Another trail leads to the top of Iron Mountain behind the Inn where you meet a section of the famous Appalachian Trail. From there it is an easy7 mile hike back out to Cross Mountain road where the Innkeeper will meet you with water and a chocolate chip cookie from the famous “bottomless cookie jar”.

.After a hike, time to enjoy the rocking chairs on the Inn's deck. Here you will enjoy the sound of bird song instead of car horns, wind in the trees instead of neighbors talking, and getting onto “mountain time” instead of “city time”.

Iron Mountain Inn Book Corner

Perhaps you prefer a quiet relaxing time for your vacation at the Inn.  We have an extensive library of books on a wide variety of subjects. Some are in our “Exchange Library” where if you don’t finish the book during your stay, you are welcome to take it along with you and if you finished a book and don’t want to read it again, we’d be delighted to add it to our collection.

Heritage Hall in Mountain City is our community theater. Professional shows, high school drama club, talent shows, Cody Norris all appear in our very own Johnson County performance center. Across the mountain in Abingdon, VA is the professional repertory theater, Barter Theatre where you can see 4 plays in 2 days!

The Virginia Creeper Trail is something for the entire family…and you don’t have to work too hard, either. Bring your own bike or rent one from The Bike Station in Abingdon, VA.  The Creeper Trail is 34 miles altogether, but you will probably only coast down the 14 miles from Whitetop Mountain back to Damascus, VA. Stop along the way for a visit to the railroad museum and for a snack at the Trailside Restaurant about half way down.    

Evenings are a time to relax: watch the sun go down with a refreshing glass of ice tea or something stronger, play dominoes or other board games, maybe a game of poker, chat with new found friends – maybe you can solve the problems of the world..who knows!

Bristol Motor Speedway

Are you a NASCAR fan?  The Inn is just over the mountain from Bristol Motor Speedway home of "Racin' the Way it Auter Be" and the world's fastest half mile track. Race weekends in March and August are among our busiest so come cheer your favorite driver along with other fans.

And then there are the fine restaurants in the area: Mel’s Monsoon Thai just up the road; La Cucina with fine cooked-to-order Italian; Tributary with steaks and seafood; Suba’s where you start with dessert; and finally Captain’s Table overlooking the lake and mountains.
