My daughter and I stayed here in early summer. There were few rooms booked at the time which made for a very peaceful stay. Owners were friendly and welcoming and answered questions about the area and made suggestions of places to go. We didn't have a chance to eat in the beautiful dining room but breakfast was served on the... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Balsam Mountain Inn. We like staying in historic properties This property was a bit more rustic than we pictured, with small rooms and bathrooms. However the charm and hospitality more than made up for that. Comfortable beds, friendly staff, Dinner was great. Hard to beat sitting on the porch with a glass of wine,... More

I'm so glad there are people out there they feel preserving the past is important for future generations. Balsam Mountain Inn was built in the days when families took all inclusive vacations in the mountains away from the summer heat. Every room is decorated differently. We go a first floor room. Simple decor. Very small bathroom but I don't usually... More

I had been looking for a place to spend a getaway weekend for my boyfriend's birthday, and this inn happened to appear in Groupon (I was trying to keep costs down). We both love to hike, and I saw that this inn was located right near the Smoky Mountains and I had read some of the reviews and they appeared... More

I was trying to find a place to break my journey from Tennessee to Greensboro NC and found Balsam on the web. It's an amazing old house full of character. If you go expecting 5 star luxury touches you might get at a Sheraton you'll be disappointed. If you go wanting genuine hospitality, beautiful rooms, comfy beds and great food... More

I stayed there with seven other guys on a golf trip. The room was large and clean, the bathroom was small. I shared a room with another and the beds were comfy, the temp in the room was good as well. Breakfast was not generous, but was tasty. They were not inclined to deviate from the menu to any significant... More

From SC, KY & OH, the 6 of us gathered to celebrate a special birthday and it was a fine choice. Since then, I met others who have had fun there too. Good weather is a bonus as the porch rockers provide comfort & views but even if it rains, the large social area with plenty of light, fireplaces, puzzles,... More

I read all the negative reviews and was a little surprised. My wife and I have been here about 10 times in the last several years and like coming back, as a matter of fact we are arriving tomorrow for a weekend stay. I love the porch and the watching the sun shining on the mountain as it goes down... More

I had stayed at the Balsam Mountain Inn in 1999 as a teen with my family. This visit, I was there with my husband for a romantic weekend getaway. Although this was quite a different type trip than my first, I was impressed all over again. The Inn is in a perfect location for Blue Ridge Parkway or Pisgah National... More

Our third visit as relaxing as the first years ago. If you want a quiet, no frills getaway, this inn is your spot. No cell service or tv- yea. Our dinners were divine. Yummy breakfasts of the day. No additional choices. Staff very accommodating. You can't go wrong. Great shopping in nearby Waynesville and right at entrance to Blue Ridge... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Read, rest, ramble and romp at the Balsam Mountain Inn! Nestled among lofty Smoky Mountain peaks just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Balsam Mountain Inn was completed in 1908 to serve the highest railway depot in the east. Restored in 1991, the inn now welcomes travelers with 50 cheerful rooms, rocker-filled porches, a fine library and gracious dining. Plump pillows and soft comforters inspire pleasant dreams! In December, 2011, the Inn came once again to be owned by Merrily Teasley, the innkeeper who restored the structure two decades ago. An experienced rescuer of wonderful buildings, Teasley bought the derelict inn in 1990, and her certified rehabilitation effort helped the inn – already on the National Historic Register – experience a rebirth. ... more   less
