A buddy and I spent a night at the Inn, and had a nice relaxing visit. Not much to do in town, but we liked the general hardware store, and saw several thru-hikers from the Appalachian trail. The inn could use a little TLC in the sleeping rooms, but beautiful, historic décor and the grounds were very nice with lots... More

Service is fantastic. Thank you Gina. Thank you Pete. This Inn is clearly the high point of a small mountain community. The lawn and gardens are maintained very nicely. The Inn is also well maintained and attractively decorated. We stayed in the Walnut Room. OK, the floors squeaked a little, but you expect that from an older Inn. And it... More

We stayed at Magnolia Inn on Valentines weekend this year, hoping for a romantic and restful stay. Our overall impression was that Magnolia Inn is a place to go in the summer. We were in the lower chalet, which is said in the on-line information to be one minute away from the main inn. Well, yep it is - by... More

Anytime we come to Hot Springs, we have to eat at the Mountain Magnolia Inn. Food and service is always spot on! The new chef is great! If you are in Hot Springs, this is a must-- absolutely perfect place for a romantic dinner.

Our family is spread from GA to VA, so NC is a great meeting place, and we couldn't have picked a more family friendly, clean, fun place to visit than the Octagon House which is part of the property of the Mountain Magnolia Inn. The staff thought of everything a family would need, even including lots of coffee, a complete... More

I can't say enough great things about my stay! Our room (the Rose Room) was warm and inviting and the staff was incredibly friendly. We actually received a special for a free dinner with our stay and the food was amazing!! I will definitely be back!

My wife and I spent the night at the Mountain Magnolia Inn last week and were immediately enchanted with the Inn and with Hot Springs, NC in general. The Inn is a three story Victorian home that is finished with period pieces. The downtown area of Hot Springs was a short, pleasant walk along the river. We had the Walnut... More

Thanks for your nice comments particularly about the period antiques and the nice walk to town. My wife and I have always loved the warmth and beauty of period pieces and the inn gave us a template to display some of our favorites and even purchase more. I too love the location of the Inn in relation to town. About... More

We stayed here for our anniversary a decade ago and then again this past week, so great to go back! The Inn definitely has charm and a rustic aura from it's historical background and is a wonderful place to visit.. We did appreciate the free WiFi as our provider (AT&T) did not service Hot Springs. Just be aware that no... More

There is not one single thing that wasn't perfect about our stay! From the pre elopement planning with Beth to the moment we left - perfect! The staff is amazingly friendly, the Inn is beautiful, food is to die for and the area is lovely. My husband and I plan to return each year for our anniversary.
