Prospect Hill B&B Inn

Prospect Hill B&B Inn

Built in 1889 of hand-made brick, this house is a Victorian shingle-style home which looks very northern. Its builder, Major Joseph Wagner, served in the Union Army during the Civil War. He had mercantile and mining interests in the post-war era.


Daniel Cranford measure the footer for the patio retaining wall. The Rambo family bought the house in 1910 and updated it with electricity, plumbing and central heat on the first floor. In August 1991, the third generation of Rambo's sold it to the Cornetts, who in turn sold it to Robert and Judy Hotchkiss of Atlanta.

The couple bought the house because its commanding presence on a hill makes it look like it should be a B&B. Judy and Robert Hotchkiss have been renovators since one day in 1972 when they repainted door trim in an old house they rented in the Seattle area. Since then they have revived a series of turn-of-the-century homes in the Atlanta area, but nothing as daunting as a 6,000 square-foot shingle style Victorian located in a small town in rural Northeast Tennessee.

Robert holds a physics degree from Georgia Tech and a law degree from Emory University. He also trained in nuclear submarines. Judy holds a journalism degree and is an avid student of renovation and gardening.
