The Balsam Mountain Inn is a beautiful old Inn tucked away up on the side of a mountain in Balsam, NC. The front porches (up and down) have comfortable rocking chairs to sit in and enjoy the sound of nature.

Get the pun? Spent 2 lovely days at the Balsam Inn. Was leery about going because of the some of the reviews made - too old, no TV, bathroom too small, etc. All of that is true, but who needs a TV (WiFi works just fine in your room) when you have a beautiful porch with multiple rocking chairs and...

This was our second visit to this wonderful old inn, which has been restored by an enterprising lady, who lives on the property and oversees every detail. You almost feel as if you've been transported back in time to 1905 when you walk into the lobby. The furnishings are of the period (except for the modern restaurant) and there are... More

We purchased a Living Social deal so we could get back up to one of our favorite towns, Asheville. Man, we could not have had a better time. This place was built in 1905 as an Inn up the hill from the highest railroad point (and station) east of the Rockies. It has been renovated by a wonderful lady who... More

We stayed at Balsam Mountain Inn this past weekend and it was just beautiful. It is an old restored B&B, very large and with a lot of character. The room was really cute. Keep in mind that this is a very old, restored B&B, and is made totally of wood. The floors are a little creaky and the bathrooms are... More

We like to visit on the weekends the songwriters are scheduled. We have been 4 times. The inn itself, is lovely in a comfortable way. The furnishings are comfortable and original to each room. Hard wood floors are throughout with wide staircases. It is interesting. Our last room had a step up to the bathroom and a window seat. There... More

Step back into time and take a deep breath of the clean mountain air. Well appointed period appropriate inn restored to its original charm. No modern luxuries here, which makes you step back and relax. The food is fantastic and the inn/restaurant has a great wine list. Grab a glass of wine and relax in the study full of charming...

We came to the Inn with another couple - on a Living Social deal, slightly apprehensive due to some of the reviews we had read. I am a very light sleeper and pretty particular about my bed. So I came prepared with my white noise, but left my own pillow at home. I slept like a baby! The room was... More

The Balsam Mountain Inn (BMI) is a remarkable place. The inn is charming and everything about it says ... Welcome! It is so comfortable and inviting. Each room has a character of its own, so lovely and homey, and the common areas, library, hallways and front porches (on ground and second floors) are heavenly. You feel like you stepped back...

We recently stayed at the Balsam Mountain inn, courtesy of a Living Social Deal. It was a mixed experience for us. The good: The location is good, just off the expressway, but you can neither see or hear it. The hotel is charming, on a little hill overlooking the railroad tracks. The decor is nice, and there is a huge... More

Hello “Orthoarrow”, Thank you for your visit to the Balsam Mountain Inn, we appreciate that you chose us, and we wish that your experience was better than mixed. We work hard to help potential guests understand the nature of our inn before they decide to visit, because we fully understand that it isn’t for everyone. We want our guests to... More
