Well, we were back in the USA after three months of traveling around the East and West Coasts of Mexico. We crossed the border at San Luis, AZ just about at sunset, then we drove on up to Yuma, AZ. Since it was dark by the time we got to Yuma, we decided to spend the night in WalMart's parking lot....until the Security guard came over to tell us …

Hi everyone, Sorry for not posting in awhile. We have been busy visiting family, celebrating birthdays, golfing, napping, etc. You know, those things that you are supposed to do when you are retired.

Historical Traveler Reviews Pilot Knob Inn Pilot Mountain
We came for our anniversary and stayed in the Castle Room. It was wonderful! We loved the room and all the "extras"...the big screen tv, the whirlpool tub, the sauna, and the deluxe linens. We found the entire experince excellent, from the booking to the great breakfast. The host was personable and very informative!! The area around there was charming and we had a great day in Mt. Airy. We also went to two of the vineyards for dinner. The meals were outstanding and of course the wine was fantastic!. We has a great breakfast on the deck our last day. It was warm, quiet, and a great way to end a perfect stay!
We look forward to returning and enjoying a cabin during the cooler weather!
My husband and I went to Pilot Knob Inn for our Honeymoon in 2005, and have returned each year for our Anniversary. The suites are romantic, the cabins are cozy. The hostess (Jennifer) is simply the most friendly woman EVER and makes you feel totally at home and welcome. There are journals in each room where guests write about their stay, always fun to read. And Breakfast - OMG!!! Delicious and made fresh to order. However note, no dinner or lunch is available there though - you have to travel out to Mayberry (recommend Goobers!) The hostess offers great advice on area attractions and dining. It is close to the mountains and Mayberry, but sometimes you just dont care and prefer to stroll thru the woods or sit by the pool! It is soooooo peaceful and quiet, no children or pets, no distractions or traffic - just quality alone time. I have stayed in 2 of the suites and one of the cabins, loved them all for different reasons!! 100% recommended for a quiet, romantic, relaxing get away.
My wife and I spent her birthday weekend at the Pilot Knob Inn in November last year. We unfortunately didn't get to stay in one of the stand-alone cabins, but our room in the main lodge worked out great for us, especially since the excellent breakfast was served just around the corner. The room was spotless, well appointed, and easily met our expectations. And my wife is very picky about these things...
If you have ever wanted to find that little place that made the whole world stop juust so you could take a deep breath...this is the place!! I've been a "few" places, this is one of the best, The Inn Keepers are just like family, or that friend that you know you can call in the middle of the morning & know that they are glad to here from you...SO NICE...The Cabins are beautiful (immaculately kept too) restored pieces of history (with the most modern conviences of course) nestled at the base of the famous "Mt Pilot" (Andy Griffith), it's amazing how you can find a small piece of yourself with just a quiet stroll down a woodsy trail, or take the boat out onto the pond/lake that this place has....they even had fire wood split and on the porch, in the room....all the details taken care of..!! I couldn't thank them enough. If you ever have the chance....[--] You will never forget your stay, it's beautiful!!
A Slice of Tranquility
My husband and I stumbled upon Pilot Knob Inn while finishing our Christmas shopping. Like most men, shopping is not a pleasant experience. Our stay was a perfect reward for him after a stressful day following me around the mall. We stayed in Cabin 2 and it was fabulous. The quiet country setting was a great way to relax. The room was fantastic (I am very picky! lol). The staff was courteous and gave us a great suggestion for dinner. I think after our stay, my husband will be much more eager to shop with me in the future. We'll be back soon!! Hopefully on New Years. Thanks again for a great time.
Don't waste your money
We stayed in old of the cabins. The main problem we had was that the place was very dirty. It seemed like they just changed the trash and towels between stays. There were spider webs in the corners of the rooms, the grout on the bathroom floor and around the sides of the tub was stained black. There was soap scum and hair caked on the pump intake of the whirlpool tub. The pillows were about 1 inch thick and seemed very old and my dust mite allergies were strong all night sleeping on their old mattress. There were questionable stains on the sheets. The place was gross, especially for $200/night.
The scenery was actually very nice. They have a great location to work with, but they need to keep the places much cleaner, update and work on their customer service.
Horrible, save your money and stay at any other hotel
We stayed here for our honeymoon night and it was a BIG mistake. The whirlpool tub had hair all around the intake, there were spider webs all over and the general cleanliness of the room was terrible. The pillows on the bed were about 20 years old and the grout in the bathroom was dirty. The owners were not helpful and were quite rude to us. Save your money.
My wife and I stayed at the Pilot Knob Inn as part of our Valentine's Day celebration this year.
Pilot Knob Inn can't be beaten
Once my girlfriend and I arrived in the US we could not wait to get the pilots knob inn. There was a wide selection of food and drink available. There were a lot of other venues available but both my girlfriend and I agreed the Pilots Knob Inn was the place to be.
It was very spacious inside the Pilots Knob with a homely aroma as soon as you made your way through the grand enterance. Sharron definatly recommends having the Pilots Knob Inn cider.
