|Isn't this place beautiful?!|

Allan and I were finally able to go up to Green Haven Creek in January. Thanks to our schedules free weekends are few and far between so this was a luxury. While I could have asked for warmer weather and no rain so we could have explored the grounds we couldn't have asked for better hosts. One of the owners and Allan could have talked engineering the entire weekend if I had let them!

We were the only guests for the weekend so we had the entire second floor to ourselves. I got to pick the bedroom so I immediately chose the one with a claw footed tub in the bathroom. I planned ahead and packed snacks so we could stay in for the night instead of going out for dinner. They had fresh chocolate chip cookies and coffee when we arrived and you know how it goes with warm cookies-you can't have just one! There were NFL playoff games to watch so we spent the evening in front of the TV snuggled on the couch.

|They don't make tubs like this anymore. I wish I had one!|
The bed was sooo nice and comfortable and we both had a great night's sleep. Allan slept right through it (no surprise there, right?!) but rain on the tin roof woke me up in the middle of the night. There's nothing more peaceful than sleeping with rain falling on a tin roof.
|This was in the bathroom too and one of Allan's favorite aspects of the house-he loves exposed brick work|
In the morning we had a delicious breakfast of coffee, quiche, cereal, yogurt, juices, and cinnamon rolls. We were both stuffed afterward! By some miracle Allan kept me from taking home a kitten. The owner's cat had a new litter of kittens that I fell in love with after we arrived and I spent some time playing with them on Sunday morning before we had to leave.

I highly recommend staying in a B&B if you have a chance and if you are in south Tennessee then Green Haven Creek should be on your list for a nice weekend getaway! We will certainly be making another trip when it's warmer so we can enjoy the walking trails on the 18 acres surrounding the house. Besides checking out their website you can find them on facebook and on Twitter.

As a side note I wanted to mention that they place a lot of emphasis on Green Technology so the cleaning products are all-natural, their air water filtration systems blew my mind, and even the pillows and mattresses are eco-friendly. I thought this was a neat touch and after a long conversation with one of the owners he shared with us the time and effort he has put into making sure they are doing all they can to create the "eco-elegant environment" that they reference on their website.
|Who knows what this is? They had a display of items found on the property and this was one of many goodies|
Have you ever stayed at a Bed & Breakfast?
