We are sorry, but do not have any accommodations for storytelling 2014
Kim and Mike Anders welcome you to Febuary Hill Bed & Breakfast. No, it is not the month misspelled, but a proper name of the Febuary family who lived here for many generations. The hill on which the home resides takes its name from this family. The Anders use the same spelling to honor its lineage.
The rich history of these grounds was fashioned by a duel of President Andrew Jackson and providing a home to Civil War army general Reuben Frank Bernard.
Come relax in one of Jonesborough's oldest homes. Enjoy the park and townscape from our front porch. Spend some quiet time walking the grounds or just sitting in the swing. Our accommodations make you feel right at home.
The upstairs landing is an enjoyable space to sit with a hot cup of coffee while appreciating the early morning sun. Your innkeeper, Kim, prepares daily homemade delicacies offered as a buffet style full breakfast to help get you started for a wonderful day exploring our local treasures. Evening treats are provided along with complementary beverages of limited selection. The library is a guest space on the first floor that offers a quiet place to read or just relax. On winter days, enjoy the warmth of its cozy fireplace. Febuary Hill sits on four acres of property, offering numerous areas to stroll, relax, and enjoy the natural beauty of the grounds.

Welcome to Historic Jonesborough, the oldest town in Tennessee. We're the little town with the big story. We've been entertaining guests for almost 225 years, and we've enjoyed every minute of it.
We have a rich history and a proud heritage. We've worked hard to not only preserve our historic buildings and character, but our cultural heritage, as well. Jonesborough is the storytelling capital of the world. The National Storytelling Festival, started over 30 years ago, was the first celebration dedicated solely to the art of the storytelling. With the completion of the new International Storytelling Center, there are storytelling events and activities going on all the time.
We are fully booked for the Storytelling Festival 2013
We love our music here, too. Our area is considered the birthplace of country music, and it's in our blood. We have free concerts downtown every Friday night from May through September with Music on the Square and "Fine Art in the Park" in October.
Shop in our unique stores and eat in our quaint cafés and restaurants. Visit the Jonesborough/Washington County History Museum, the International Storytelling Center, and the Historic Jonesborough Visitors Center. Stay awhile or stay forever. We love company.

In beautiful East Tennessee, located just west of Johnson City and east of Greeneville, Tennessee, Jonesborough is easily found just off highway 11-E. At the town's sign, turn at the intersection south towards the town sign onto Boone Street which leads past the Visitor's Center to Main Street. Turn right on Main, go one block and turn right (between the Story Telling Center and the Jonesborough Art Glass Shop) on to Cherokee Street. Up the small rise one block, you will find Febuary Hill sitting just left of Cherokee Street and above College Street.
