In January of 2018 Blake and Katelyn rolled out their Brunch restaurant, EUREKA BITES. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays they open their doors and their kitchen not only to their overnight guests but also to the public.
“Breakfast for All” stems from their dedication to accommodating guests with certain dietary restrictions. Are you Gluten-Free? Eureka Bites serves GF Almond Flour biscuits and the gravy is Gluten-Free! Their menu boasts breakfast classics like pancakes filled with blueberries or pecans, fried rosemary potatoes, and eggs made to order.
If you’re in a lunch mood they also offer several lunch selections including BLTs, Curry Chicken Salad, and their signature fried green tomato sandwich the Whistlestop!
All lunch items are served with a zesty pasta salad or fruit and a pickle. Follow @eurekabites on Instagram and Facebook to keep up to date with their Specials and more information.

In the spring of 1797 Robert Mitchell and his wife Harriett purchased Lot #19 from the town of Jonesborough. This two story dwelling was built on a stone foundation, logs were used for floor joists, and the dwelling was of mortise and tenon frame. The interior surfaces were wide plank walls, floors, and ceilings. Four fireplaces provided heat and the exterior was covered with clapboard and the roof was shake shingles.
Fast forward 200 years, in the spring of 1997 the hotel was purchased by a small group of residents in Jonesborough. These investors wanted to see this beautiful old hotel restored back to its days of glory. A great deal of time and expense went into the planning process. The challenge was to preserve the charm of the hotel while blending in the amenities expected by the discerning traveler. Three years and almost three million dollars later, the Eureka reopened under the original name, offering the best of the past and the present. All guestrooms are decorated with a combination of period antiques and elegant reproductions.
