If you want privacy (not chatterbox B&B), beautiful outdoor settings, and great food, this is the place. We return at least once a year to find it even better. David, the Innkeeper, has created an atmosphere of hospitality and warmth while also arranging lovely private and quiet cottages and rooms that provide a welcome escape from hectic careers. Cottages are nicely furnished. Comfortable living areas and ample sized bedrooms are paired with private porches where all one can see are tall, tall, trees. Beautiful vistas await summer and fall!
A few steps from one's cottage, the lodge's restaurant offers wonderful, large, hot breakfasts: eggs, bacon, oatmeal, muffins. Something different each day. Afterwards, one can retreat to one of many cozy but private sitting areas for coffee, catching up on e-mail (lodge offers wireless), and reading. The charming town has bookstores, antique stores, lunch spots, and many shops. A short drive takes you right to Biltmore, the national park, and Asheville sites.
Return from sightseeing or hiking to the delicious aromas emerging from Chef Terry's kitchen at the lodge in the early evening. Be sure you have reservations, because it is a very popular dining spot with the locals! Seafood, meats, and freshly grown vegetables come with local herbs and in the most interesting flavors and combinations. The pan-fried catfish and the rack of lamb are favorites. New items appear each season. The wine list is impressive and always has something new. Cocktails (the best Cosmopolitan ever!) await in the bar and you can take your favorite wine back to your porch.
I spent one night in one of their cabins in mid April and had a wonderful stay. The cabin was quaint, comfortable and very peaceful. The innkeeper was friendly, the service and breakfast was excellant. A great place to spend some time with your thoughts, or for a romantic hideaway.
My husband and I have stayed here twice and are returning again this weekend and in October with guests from England. We found it by chance on the Internet and couldn't have asked for a better value. The rooms are not the most luxurious we have ever stayed in - but are very well appointed, comfortable and an unbeatable price. The extra touches such as newspaper and coffee delivered to the room every morning(and roses in the room on my birthday) were delightful. The dining room has great atmosphere - old mountain lodge - you can sit by an open window with fresh flowers on your white linen tablecloth and beside a roaring log fire. The food (breakfast and dinner) is outstanding although I imagine that if you stayed longer than 3- 4 days you might tire of the menu which doesn't change much. Generous wine list. Service always impeccable. Innkeepers helpful with ideas of what to do during the day and other restaurants to visit. Perfect place to escape from the hot summers in the Piedmont!
