The Minnis House
When visiting East Tennessee, consider a stay at The Minnis House, a recently renovated 100 yr. old home with private baths, cable TV and wireless internet. It's the most convenient lodging to Carson-Newman College and Jefferson Memorial Hospital and just a 20 minute drive from Sevierville, Morristown and East Knoxville. Guests enjoy sleeping on our comfortable new mattresses and bedding after their bedtime snack of warm cookies and milk (or other beverage). Elopement and vow renewal packages start at $149, which includes an ordained minister and an overnight stay with delicious breakfast, or $195 with breakfast and a romantic candlelight dinner. We also offer wedding planning by a certified wedding consultant. Guests enjoy rocking on the big front porch while reading their favorite book. The Minnis House is the best place to stay while driving the Tennessee Quilt Trail, since there is a quilt painting on the side of our little barn. Guests enjoy a $5 discount at Lost Creek Golf Club, just two miles away with a low weekday rate for our guests of $23, including cart. An excellent mother-daughter get away...a pajama party for three mothers and three daughters, with an overnight stay, movies and popcorn! Our 100 year old inn features stained glass light fixtures and lamps, lead glass windows, and beautiful woodwork in the Arts and Crafts style, including two sets of pocket doors and five (non-working) places with Italian tiles and original mantles. Guests enjoy playing the baby grand piano, too. A visit with us brings back memories of staying at your grandmaw's house, but you don't have to make your bed or wash dishes!
