Why Choose Longing For Home Bed and Breakfast a you weekend getaway?

Longing For Home Bed and Breakfast, owned and operated by Bill and Betty Maloney, is the ideal place to step out of the "rat race" of the daily routine.  Opened in January 2009 and set serenely on fifteen (15) wooded acres that are transected by picturesque Weaver Branch Creek, this 1880's style farmhouse is a great romantic hideaway, a peaceful weekend getaway or vacation destination for anyone looking to experience “A State of Mind, A Place of Grace and A Way of Life” of ages past that is Longing for Home.

With recent renovations, this Tennessee Valley bed and breakfast now features three spacious guest rooms: Sunshine Daydreams, Country Graces and Simple Pleasures designed to foster a peaceful state of mind, a quiet place of grace and a slower pace of life. For those with a zest for the outdoors, "The Sleeping Porch", provides a view of the stars at night and the opportunity to wake to the music of nature that surrounds this charming country setting. Each of our guest rooms has its own bath with washstand-style sinks set atop marble vanity counters along with all the amenities needed to ensure a memorable stay with us. The Sleeping Porch features its own shower-steam combination as well as a separate shared powder room. Sunshine Daydreams features a fireplace, a Jacuzzi tub along with its own balcony for your morning coffee or to enjoy anytime. Country Graces offers a cozy atmosphere where you can soak in the antique claw-foot tub. Simple Pleasures, while the smallest of our guestrooms, is the most luxuriously appointed. Its separate bath features a Greek soaking tub; a deep tub built especially to soak your daily cares away.

During your stay, the wooded grounds of Longing for Home offer walking trails to enjoy the peace of nature along the gurgling water of Weaver Branch. A gazebo, planted in the midst of our lower pasture and surrounded by wildflowers, is a cozy spot to idle away an afternoon. Wood decks offer places for relaxing among clusters of brilliant day lilies and stately magnolia trees. The sparkling water in the large swimming pool is a perfect choice for recreation.

Longing For Home is the ideal location for weddings and other special events. We offer a variety of wedding sites (indoor and out) that will make your special day perfect.

Have a blessed Day.
