The innkeeper—a former White House chef—serves three-course breakfasts and teaches cooking classes. Presidential history has never been so delicious.

The Destination
There's a lot of Grover, North Carolina, to love—just one way in which the town is like its namesake, President Grover Cleveland. A healthy appreciation for the past is perhaps most proudly displayed on Gingerbread Row, a stretch of Cleveland Avenue lined with restored historic homes. Just across the border in South Carolina, Kings Mountain National Military Park preserves its Revolutionary War battlefield while offering winding nature trails for hiking and biking. And less than an hour east of Grover is the city of Charlotte, emerging as a region where innovation and modernity reign supreme in the "New South."

The Digs
The Inn of the Patriots is housed in the former Hambright family mansion, a clapboard prairie-style sprawl built in 1879. These days, the five-room inn is owned by former White House Chef Marti Mongiello and his wife Chef Stormy, who focus on serving up delicious fare in a relaxed B&B setting. Individually appointed guest rooms blend American, European, and Asian décor and invite leisurely relaxation with luxurious robes, satellite TV, and DVD players. Each morning, the chefs roll out a six-course breakfast sure to impress any palate, and they also run the on-site Presidential Culinary Museum.

To get a taste of what you're in store for with these culinary counselors, hear directly from Chef Marti and Chef Stormy in these videos. You can even read about Chef Marti's unique use of military tactics in business here.

The Details
• Go online to make your reservation
• Taxes are not included—you'll pay those directly to the property
• Add one child to your room for an extra $15/night, per person

  • This was a treasured anniversary getaway to a great B&B. Tucked away with a intriguingly rich history, it is what we always hope for in a B&B. Nearby towns offer a lovely mix of vibrant downtowns, wineries, and expected retail.

  • If you are an American history enthusiast, a culinary enthusiast, or someone looking for a delightful, private, and relaxing getaway, then this is the place for you. Really enjoyed the inn and Chefs Marti and Stormy. I feel like I have made friends.
