For nearly 80 years AAA has published ratings of quality hotels and restaurants throughout North America. Their 4 Diamond rating accounts for 5.4 percent of the more than 28,000 AAA Approved and Diamond Rated hotels. To receive and maintain that distinction each and every property is secretly inspected for excellent quality and hospitality. With only 5 bed and breakfast inns being selected in Tennessee they set a high standard!
Before the first brick was built at Whitestone we planned the property to the 4-Diamond standards. And continuing that tradition has allowed us to receive this prestigious award every year since we opened – 18 years!
Since our first year we’ve added several awards such as Select Registry, One of 10 Most Romantic Inns in America, and the Southern Living Hotel Collection. However, being a part of our entire history, the 4-Diamond award holds a special place with us!
We’re thankful and excited for another year to serve guests beyond the AAA 4-Diamond standard. Ya’ll come visit!
Congratulations to the four other Bed and Breakfasts and Inns in Tennessee who received the award!
- Eight Gables Inn – Gatlinburg, TN
- Mayors Mansion Inn – Chattanooga, TN
- Lodge at Buckberry Creek – Gatlinburg, TN
- Christopher Place – Newport, TN
