Apple City Bed & Breakfast
BACK TO HOME PAGE

If you are reading this and you are not Brenda or Rhonda, then you have discovered a "real gem" in the great state of NC.  Our (my husband Chris & mine) time spent at Apple City has been not only warm, hospitable, loving and full of tasty treats, but our time here has been a spiritual renewal surrounded by wonderful people. Rhonda, your strength of character and buckwheat pancakes not only fill your stomach, but warm your heart! You provide safety and security in such a wonderful home. Brenda, your bubbly personality and "Martha Stewart" charms make the Apple City the #1 B&B! You give love to strangers and that's a God given gift. You both are truly blessed!!
Thank you and we'll be back, Chris & Sara L.

Thanks for providing a restful, peaceful place for my brother and I to enjoy one another's company.  I honestly haven't slept well until these past few days. Thanks for the nourishing breakfasts and the fun conversations we shared with you and thank you for sharing your sweet little yorkie, Mimzie with us.
Many Blessings to both of you,
J.A.L. - Franklin, TN

Brenda & Rhonda,
I felt as safe and secure and at ease as in my own home or with my family. Thank you for NOT buying my patronage, but sharing your kindness which will certainly bring me back.
Have a wonderful summer, stay healthy and grow more beautiful berries and herbs!!! I will certainly spread the word about my discovery of Apple City B&B.

Fabulous breakfast, Brenda. It must be difficult to cater to varied dietary requests, but you did it well. We felt right at home.

Brenda and Rhonda,

Thank you for a nice stay in beautiful surroundings.  It was nice meeting you all and chatting with you. It was also nice to be able to stay here because we thought we'd have to stay in Hickory.  It sure saved us a lot of time and gas not having to drive the extra 40-45 minutes back and forth from Hickory each day and the breakfasts were certainly better! Best wishes to you all and Mimzie.  We hope that you will have a room available next year when we're out this way again and have even discussed stopping here for a night each way when we travel to Florida.  Maybe we'll have a chance to sample some of that famous Chow Chow we've heard so much about.
Thanks for everything!
Elisha and Steve - Phoenixville,  PA

Dear Brenda, Rhonda and Mimzie,
Thank you so much for your gracious hospitality! The breakfasts were delicious and the company was precious.

To Rhonda and Brenda,
Bernie and I have had a wonderful time here. You both are great B&B hostesses and were meant to be in this wonderful business. Brenda, your breakfasts were really delicious and Rhonda, we thank you for spending the time with us at the Hiddenite Mine and helping me later to sort through the Gems. We own a B&B up in NYS on Seneca Lake (the Cottage Lakemont on Seneca) and we are going on our 12th year and thinking of retiring.  You both treated us like family as we do with our guests.  Over the years we have met some wonderful people and I am sure that you have to.  You both made us very comfortable and others will feel the same and return again.  Best of luck; you're doing a great job.  Mimzie, your dog was adorable too.
Thank you so much,
Bernie and Carol Kline - Lakemont, New York

Comments from previous years

This is probably The Best Bed & Breakfast we have ever stayed in.  Brenda and Rhonda was very friendly and made our stay so enjoyable.
Thank you, Jim & Judy M. - Brodenton, FL

Your home is absolutely lovely. Much love and attention to detail has been made in the transformation of your bed and breakfast. This is our first B&B visit and we will likely return! The "B" in Breakfast has been capitalized by the most delicious breakfasts we have ever consumed! May the culinary delights carry on at Miss Brenda's place.
With great fondness,
Jim & Bev - Williamsburg, VA

Dear Brenda & Rhonda,
Thank you for providing this valuable service to Taylorsville. We enjoyed our visit with our family so much more since we didn't have to drive to Hickory or Conover everyday to be with them. Your house is lovely, your hospitality delightful and we hope many more folks will come to enjoy it. I hope you will meet my brother and sister-in-law soon. They are wonderful people. They felt bad that they didn't have room for all the wedding guests, so you have done them a great favor, too. If you ever are able to visit Liledoun Road Church of christ, I know they will give you a warm welcome! Thank you again for taking such good care of us and feeding us the delicious breakfasts. And, Brenda, thanks for buying my books.
Take care and may God bless you!

Comments from previous years

We were honored to be the first people to stay in Taylorsville's first Bed & Breakfast and the first to enjoy the Granny Smith Room. The hosts were delightful, breakfast was delicious. While a walk through town was surprisingly quiet for us city dwellers living in Columbia, South Carolina, we enjoyed its quaintness. We are excited to tell our friends about this place, hope to get a bite of this city's sweet apples before we depart!

Having never stayed at a B&B Amy and I didn't know what to expect.  We were welcomed with open arms, and made to feel completely as ease.  By the next day 8-19-06, after talking with you all for a while we felt as if we were visiting with friends. 8-20-06 we shared the breakfast table with ya'll and felt as if we were with family. Thanks for making our visit so pleasant. 8-21-06  We will leave for our home in a little bit, but will be back. You will remain our friends. (remember the Chandelier, ha, ha).
Thanks again, Joe & Amy

Danny and I with to thank you all for having us, here at your wonderful B&B. We want to thank you for your kindness and making us feel so welcomed. For me, it has given me a trip back in time, to when I was a child; living with my grandmother.  I have so enjoyed my chat with you Brenda, you are a very special lady. May God bless and keep you and Rhonda, in his loving hands always. I will send you the recipe I told you about and other things from time to time.  We think of you both as new found friends now.  I hope we will get to come back to North Carolina and stay with you and Rhonda again sometime. Much success in your business and in your future.
Thanks again to our special friends,
Danny & Shirley - Harriman, TN

Coming to Taylorsville for my granddaughter's first birthday was pretty important to me, but where I stayed didn't really matter, but what a pleasure it has been to be a guest of Brenda's in this lovely home. I felt like I went to heaven, I slept so well and woke up to breakfast cooking. What a treat! It's going to be tough to go back to my busy life in Minnesota. Thank you so much, your home was a needed refuge. God bless you and keep you. I will look forward to my next visit. Add me to you list of friends.

Dear Brenda,
What a great house! I loved all the Christmas decorations; esp. the Chrismon Tree.  I have never seen or heard of such a thing. You made us feel very welcome. Now that we have family here in Taylorsville, it is nice to know we always have a place to stay. Thank you and have a very Merry Christmas.
God Bless you. - Jill S.- FL

Dear Rhonda,
Just loved our visit. you made it so homey and warm. I hope you will consider us "new friends".  We should be in Taylorsville a lot while my daughter is here.  We will be sure to come by and visit. Wish you much success in the new year and always.

Dear Brenda & Rhonda,
What can I say except a huge THANK YOU! Your warm hospitality and friendly atmosphere made us all feel like we were staying at home. I really appreciate your willingness to take in 2 momas "stranded" in Taylorsville with our children. Both of you were truly a God send ~ I know you will remember us for a long time. Truly, friendship is found along the way and as this journal states, - it is the ribbon that ties us all together.
Thanks for the memory.
Our love and best wishes,
Teresa, Newland, NC

Thank you for the wonderful hospitality. We have enjoyed our visit very much.  Our first experience at a bed & breakfast. This isn't just a bed and breakfast it was also a very relaxing welcoming home away from home. The delicious breakfast spoiled us.  The good visits with Brenda showed us how sweet and special she is.  It is great to see her dream come true. My mother and grandparents are originally from here in Taylorsville. Taylorsville is much better now with this available bed and breakfast. We hope to return and try another fabulous room.
Thank You!
Steve & Roberta - Michigan

Brenda and Rhonda,
Thank you both so much for your hospitality. We never expected to make such wonderful new friends so far from home. A special thanks to Mr. S. Rhodes who recommended this wonderful oasis in the hills of North Carolina. Brenda, we will be back to visit again, not just for Emerald Mines but mostly because you make the best grits in the world. Thank you again to our new found friends, we will miss you!

Dear Brenda & Rhonda,
Thank you both for your wonderful hospitality and charming conversation. We came to Taylorsville to visit my mom and we were fortunate to find your B&B on the internet prior to coming. We have enjoyed our stay with you; your B&B is lovely and the town of Taylorsville is lovely. We have indeed made two new friends :) We will be back to visit my mom again ~ soon I hope ~ and will see both of you, our new friends. Until then, good luck with the B&B and keep smiling.
