Today, he cooks for guests at The Inn of the Patriots, his award-winning bed and breakfast in the Blue Ridge Mountains foothills. With this Getaway, you'll get to enjoy Mongiello's delicacies for yourself, with a daily six-course colonial breakfast.

Cleveland County, North Carolina: Small Railroad Towns near Revolutionary War Battle Sites
Cleveland County is situated in southwestern North Carolina, amid the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Visitors are treated to scenic views no matter the season, all within a 90-minute drive from Asheville to the west and Charlotte to the east.

One of Cleveland County's southernmost towns, Grover, lies near the South Carolina border. This former railroad town is filled with restored turn-of-the-century houses, lending it a charmingly old-timey feel. Nearby Blacksburg, South Carolina, was the site of the pivotal Battle of Kings Mountain during the American Revolution—a battle that halted the British advance into North Carolina. A monument, exhibits, and a battlefield trail commemorate that victory at Kings Mountain National Military Park.


For a taste of modern-day Cleveland County, head to the award-winning Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard, where you can sample up to 12 wines (tours are only available Thursday–Sunday). Other stops show off the area's culinary prowess, with farm-fresh American fare and seafood at NiFen Bistro in Shelby and decadent desserts at Carolina Crossing Restaurant in Grover.
  • Cancellation policy & fees: All cancellations subject to $75 fee; 90-day cancellation notice required or fee of 50% Groupon price; 4-week cancellation notice required or fee up to the Groupon price applies.
