My cousin and I were driving from Williamsburg to Ohio and decided to spend a night in the Pilot Mountain/Mt. Airy area to visit the Mayberry section of Mt. Airy again. I came across Dr. Flippin's B&B on the internet, prices were reasonable and so I chose this as our first U.S. bed and breakfast experience. It was so much better than the pictures showed. Charlotte was the warmest, most hospitable host you could ask for. We loved our room, the Carriage Room, and enjoyed looking at the other rooms and the rest of the property. We also loved hearing about the history of the home, she is truly dedicated to making it the best it can be. Her taste is exquisite, and rivaled only by her culinary skills. She has such attention to detail, your head is constantly going from side to side to take it all in. The home and the grounds were immaculate. The beds were beyond comfortable, pillows were not cheap flat pillows, I do believe they were memory foam. She provided big, soft towels, and there was reading material in the room, along with a small tv. We slept well and wakened to the smell of baking muffins, but there was so much more to breakfast, all of it presented beautifully. We found her to be a wonderful hostess from the time we booked until the time we pulled out of the driveway (huge parking area in back of the B&B which was a plus!).
