The Minnis House - close to Carson Newman College Description:
Antiques, china, and stained glass light fixtures and lamps fill The Minnis House Bed and Breakfast, located 5 minutes from Carson Newman College. A century-old home renovated with all modern conveniences is a delightful get-away from today's hectic pace. Step back in time and sit a spell on our big front porch, on the swing or in a rocker. Private baths in every room, wireless internet and cable TV make your stay a comfortable one. We're twenty minutes away from Sevierville, the gateway to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The cities of Knoxville, Morristown, Rutledge and Dandridge are also twenty minutes away. Lost Creek Golf Course is a five minute drive, while Patriot Hills and Dandridge Golf Courses are fifteen minutes away. Several other courses only thirty minutes away. Fishing and boating enthusiasts will enjoy Cherokee Lake being a 10 minute drive with Douglas Lake only 20 minutes away. Local fly fishing guides are anxious to take guests on excursions to the Holston River, ten minutes away, or to the streams in the Great Smoky Mountain area. We're proud to say our score from the State of Tenn. Health Dept. is 100. The Minnis House welcomes private events such as small weddings and receptions, showers, teas, luncheons and parties. The friendly Christian innkeepers are both lifelong local residents with knowledge of the surrounding area. Warm cookies and cold milk are served to guests every evening, with popcorn, bottled water, soft drinks, coffee, hot tea and hot chocolate available 24 hours a day. The Minnis House is surprisingly affordable, with rates of $95 for two people with breakfast or $85 for one person with breakfast. Discounts are given for week-long stays, Carson-Newman related visits, for ministers and missionaries, and senior citizens 65 and over. Out of town family and friends visiting patients at nearby Jefferson Memorial Hospital and those traveling for bereavement also receive a discount. Rates are lower without breakfast or with a continental breakfast. Conveniently located 1/2 block off of Highway 11E in New Market, Tennessee, five minutes from Jefferson City.
