    Thanks for all of you I met during this northbound 2014 season. We will be ending our scheduled shuttles to the trail heads at 9am & 11am on April 30th. We will still assist you and pick up people who will be our motel guest if you call us at 828-524-4403 in Franklin, NC and 706-896-4121 in Hiawassee, Ga. Thanks for all who patronized our towns. I would love it if you were our guest to make a post here. Have fun, God bless, and I hope to see all of you again..thanks Ron Haven Family & Staff

    Just chatted with you in Hiawassee this evening, staying at your place as I type. Thanks for your continued support of the hiker community.

    Thanks for the ride from / to the trail in 2009 in November when I was nearing completion going SOBO. Also, thank you for your continued selfless service to the trail community in spite of some of the selfish acts of taking advantage of your goodness that some of the bad apples have committed.

    Hiked thru in 2007 stayed with you for a night and resupplied . Was amazed at how accommodating you were for thru hikers. I know how some hikers can have an expectant attitude, I saw it first hand but it didn't seem to faze you at least you didn't let it show......Thank you Ron for the Southern hospitality !

    Ron - hiked through and stayed in Hiawassee two nights two weeks ago. The staff were very accommodating and I saw this repeated to the other guests I witnessed in the office. The inn had everything we needed and the location sure couldn't be beat. We got great recommendations for dinner, help finding a shuttle when we couldn't make the free one and would easily recommend the BI in Hiawassee to other hikers we meet. Hopefully you're still in business when my wife and I thru in a few years so we can meet you in person. Otherwise, perhaps we'll catch up at a trail event sometime. Thanks again.
