  • About the Inn

    The Inn at Mountain View Bed & Breakfast, front view

    The Inn is waiting to greet you with the same friendly hospitality that guests have been experiencing there for over a century.

    Since 1886, when John Webb, a Civil War veteran, successful merchant, and Mountain View's first postmaster, opened his home, known then as {The Dew Drop Inn}, to traveling salesmen, circuit riders, preachers and other weary travelers.

    Even through several transitions from inn to boarding house back to inn, the house has maintained a reputation for hospitality.


    In 1977 this beautiful beauty became full-fledged Bed and Breakfast.

    Now known as {The Inn at Mountain View}

    Today, Kevin and Melissa Mitchell, own and run The Inn at Mountain View.

    This Historic  Bed and Breakfast offers its own unique blend of warmth and comfort.

    Come stay with us, while your here on business or pleasure.
