The saying, “as southern as sweet tea” is actually quite funny since sweet tea originated in the north. The earliest recipe for sweet tea was from back in the 1890s and back then they used green tea. I personally enjoy a half-sweet and half unsweetened tea. Regardless of how sweet you like it, I can guarantee that you will like Sweet Tea Bed and Breakfast in Conover, North Carolina. At this bed and breakfast, southern hospitality comes off as a way of life for the Innkeepers and proprietors, Ralph and Patricia Hatch.

Don’t miss this magnificent restored 1920’s BNB. From the attention to detail to the hospitality of the hosts, few do it better!
I have stayed at many bed and breakfast establishments. Patricia and Ralph made this a very welcoming and relaxing stay. We enjoyed lounging in the living room and talking about the history of the house in the evening.
We had some fun reading the old handwritten doctor’s ledgers from the 1800s that were found in the house. They believe in letting the guests dictate how much they are seen. If someone is looking for a quiet getaway, this is for you. If you want to sit around and talk innkeeping and house history with the owners, this is for you.
For us, this was a perfect stop on our way home from the mountains. We drove to Linville Gorge early in the morning and spent the day hiking. From there we drove a little over an hour to the B&B. The shower never felt so good! Hot water was aplenty and the soap was just what we needed after hiking all day. It was a handmade goat milk soap from Freedom Farm in Maiden, North Carolina. It was made with eucalyptus and mint, and it was just what our sore muscles needed!
Each bedroom at Sweet Tea Bed and Breakfast is decorated beautifully. The bed I slept in was a four-poster bed and the mattress and pillows were divine. Each room is equipped with a flat-screen tv that live streams. I logged into my Netflix but was asleep in five minutes. Best night of sleep ever!!
Our breakfast was divine. Huge homemade cinnamon rolls, fresh fruit, big fluffy biscuits, crispy bacon, and an omelet made with fresh vegetables handpicked from their garden that morning. Whether you are looking for a quick getaway or want to try out a new bed and breakfast, you really can’t go wrong with Sweet Tea Bed and Breakfast.
Its proximity to the mountains is a bonus! 45 minutes to Boone, an hour to Grandfather Mountain. Or head southeast for about an hour and head into Charlotte.
We had such a great time here and will certainly be making a return trip! We hope you’ll book a weekend and see what all the fuss is about!
