The Pruitt House Inn is the place to stay when visiting Brookneal.
The historic home built by Michael Pruitt, a neighbor of Patrick Henry’s, is found occupying 25-acres at the end of a peaceful road on the edge of town. Surrounded by beautiful walnut, magnolia, and pine trees, and open pastures, here, it’s possible to escape the worries of city life and breathe easily to the sound of chirping crickets or star-gaze to your heart’s content. From the plush cozy bathrobes to the hearty home-style breakfast, to the restful night’s sleep, this is a delightful bed and breakfast experience.
The graceful old home has been lovingly restored to its glory and is decorated with antiques and furnishings befitting the home’s era and stature without neglecting modern conveniences such as hair dryers, Wifi, and charging stations.
The beds are divine and the bathrooms fantastic. I seldom go on about bathrooms but the facilities at Pruitt House are beautiful and unique. I’m not sure whether I was most impressed with the claw-footed tub, the spacious shower, or the one-of-a-kind stock tank tub. Regardless, the bathrooms are memorable. (I’ve never said that before)
Sisters Debbie and Dee Dee are the consummate innkeepers providing an elegant yet comfortable refuge that already has me planning my return.
