Our stay here was wonderful. Communication was a bonus as there was no tv or phone. Our room was sufficent with a king size bed and a very small shower. The best part was the breakfast we had in a lovely sunroom. We had French toast with a carmalized surface. Ummmm! It came with scrambled eggs, fruit and bacon. We... More

A stay at the Balsam Mountain Inn, opened in 1908, is like stepping back in time. There are no TV's, phones or radios. The quiet is startling! So that all may visit, it has been modernized for accessibility with both outside ramps + an indoor elevator. Completely accessible. The rooms are large, simple + comfortable and decorated in the most... More

A majestic inn, has the charm of the early 1900's having been built then. A piece of history, if the walls could tell stories... Food was quite good. Staff was excellent. Merrily was a great hostess. Enjoyed the porches, library and beautiful lobby. Quaint gift shop. At first was reluctant to get inside the tub, once in, couldn't get out.... More

Balsam Inn is a wonderful get-a-way. We loved the rustic and historic ambiance. There are no Phones, TV's or Air Conditioning, but you never really miss them. A great place to rest and reconnect with your love one. We ate in the restaurant twice. The food was excellent. You could actually taste the different veggies and choice cuts of meat.... More

Food was good if a bit high priced. Both supper & breakfast service was disappointing. We were surprised at the place as most reviews raived. We bought the $150 room, the first upgrade. Bathroom was very small and quite easy to here your neighbor's conversation. A small hole in wall next to light switch. A really creepy 1" square hole... More

Been living in WNC for 16 years and never been to the Balsam Mountain Inn till today. Shame on me!!! The grounds were beautiful and food was spot on! Was taken back when the staff knew who I was and business we owned in Bryson City. Already planning a mid Fall trip back with friends.

This 1908 Inn is truly fantastic. Let your mind wonder back in time and see how the people lived back then. The view is breathtaking. No phones or TV, so its very quiet and peaceful. I though the restaurant was a bit pricy for the amount of food you received. My bed was superb. Room was super clean. They do... More

We recently spent a Saturday nite here while on business in NC . While we were there, the dinner program featured 3 song writers from Nashville,Tn. The show was fabulous and the food was excellent too! The property is a redone old RR hotel from the early 1900's now touted as a B & B. While redone, the hotel still... More

Easily one of the most magical and amazing places my wife and I have ever stayed at in any location. We first came here on our honeymoon just to have a nice dinner, because the attached restaurant area is highly rated, and we were blown away by the quality of the food. Past that we realized just how nice the... More

We spent three nights at this rustic quiet inn in August. Although I am a true southerner and require air conditioning I was surprised to find it comfortable and even cool at night. Our room had its own bath and box fan. Breakfast was provided and was plentiful and good. We hiked, shopped in neighboring Waynesville and relearned to play... More
