New website for Iron Mountain Inn B&B

For the past couple of weeks I’ve been trying to put together photos, copy and all kinds of information for a new website which is being built by Scott Richardson of Blue Ridge Media.

He has been a saint putting up with me….my photos, my changes, my not making it easy for him to put this site together.  But I think we are almost ready to go live!!!!

So if you want a preview go to: http://www.blueridgemedia.com/ironmountaininn and let me know what you think.  Would love to get some feedback before it’s set in stone.

And don’t forget … if you have photos of your visit to the Iron Mountain Inn B&B, please post then on our Facebook page  ironmountaininnB&Bandvacationrentals.  Hope to keep this blog a place to keep everyone informed about what is happening in the Tri-State region of Western NC, Northeastern TN, and Southwestern VA – it’s a very lively area and there is ALWAYS something going on year round!

On March 2, the International Tenors will be performing at Heritage Hall in nearby Mountain City. An incredible show coupled with a multimedia video.  The tenors perform on stage with a big screen showing scenes and footage of Italy, Spain and France.  The audience will almost believe they are sitting in a little café watching a great show in the Piazza. 

For the weekend performance of the International Tenors, special last minute rates start at only $119.00 per night and include tickets to the show. 

Or, if you prefer band music, coming up on Tuesday March 19th at the Paramount Center for the Arts in Bristol, TN/VA will be a performance by the USAF Rhythm and Blues Jazz Band. Call right away as this performance is sure to sell out.

With mid-week discount rates starting at only $98.00 per night on a 2 night stay,(regular rates are $155.00-$195.00) full breakfast each morning and the bottomless cookie jar, this March 19th getaway is a real special for anyone who likes jazz and blues. 

These are one night only shows so call and book a room at the Iron Mountain Inn B&B in Butler, TN. At the same time let us know how many tickets for one or both shows we can order for you.
