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

This is not a place for everyone, but if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle then the Balsam will fit your needs. This place was built in 1905 and has been remodeled, but has all the flair of 1905. Wooden floors, bead board walls and ceiling, transom's above the doors, paddle fans, no air conditioning, no...

If you like quaint, old country inns, complete with old fashioned wicker furniture, puzzle games, checkerboards, and a resident dog to pet, you'll really like this Inn. There are no modern Amenities, no A/C, no in-room TV, the floor boards creak, the bathroom was quite small. BUT, as my wife said, it was a peaceful blissful weekend. Great on-site restaurant,...

Lovely setting with an old world charm. This is not a fancy resort, but a nice place to spend a weekend in a beautiful setting. Wood floors and no a/c, so be prepared. Very pleasant, food was good and the staff was great.

This hotel is an older establishment, built around the turn of the century. It has been remodeled to address modern living requirements, i.e. indoor plumbing, but the place has maintained that old world charm. Individuals contemplating a stay at this place need to know this is not some Hilton property with all the bells and whistles. You need not look... More
