I booked a room because I wanted to drive the entire blue ridge parkway and the hotel seems to be conveniently located. Well, now I know not really. The place can't be found without a GPS at night (I basically had to make a turn on a highway without seeing the road). Then beware that the hotel sits on a... More

My husband and pulled into the driveway and it was love at first sight. What a mountain resort! Cozy, tasteful, welcoming! Huge, old boxwoods lining the drive. The desk staff couldn't have been nicer or more informative. Dinner was a feast after having to choose from a marvelous menu with exquisite choices. {not to mention specials offered each night which... More

My wife and I got married here 10 years ago and chose to return for our anniversary this year. No room phones, no t.v. and spotty wifi. It was awesome. We talked to each other and other guests and breathed in clean mountain air. The meals at the inn are gourmet southern/mountain. We ate well. The accommodations were antique and... More

The food is horrible it's cold and old. Not for everyone. The food was a horrible excuse for a dinner from a so called chef. The potato's were dried out. The vegetables were cold and the steak tasted as it had been cut for several days and tough as well.

Loved the artifacts on display. Staff were super nice and dinner was excellent both nights. Breakfast only average. Nice library and common areas. Room was ok- about what you would expect in an old hotel. Linens and pillows were not the quality you would expect. Loved porches and no phones/tv. Big problem is that you hear every noise at night... More

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
