Most of the reviews, which liked the Grafton Inn, were from people who had booked cabins. We were not so lucky. We were given a small room that smelled overwhelmingly of mildew and mold; I doubt if the room had been seen fresh air in months. The bathroom was relatively large. To say that the room suffered from neglect and... More

We are very sorry the reviewers did not enjoy their stay with us, but this review is very malicious and completely unwarranted !!!. The room is not small 280 square feet, the free Wi Fi does work, so do the blinds and the room does not smell musty. Unfortunately on the first night of their stay the whole town had... More

We stayed here one night after visiting the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We just didn't want to drive all the way back to our family's house. We had the Acorn Cabin. Susan, the owner I think, was very easy to work with and was very friendly. The cabin was great. It was really chilly and when we arrived, the... More

I can't rave enough about our week in the Nuthatch cabin! We visited last month (March) and had an amazing time! Martyn & Susan are amazingly sweet and so accommodating! It rained almost the entire week we were there and the first day it was sunny was the day we were due to leave. A quick call to Susan and... More

My husband and I have been together for 6 years and married for 2. We decided to take an escape to the mountains for our anniversary. The pictures online looks as if it was a great place to vacation. When we arrived at the cabin, I was a little mislead. The TV in the living room is about 19-20 inches... More

We are very sorry the reviewer did not enjoy their stay with us but they did not mention any of their issues during their stay or when they left so it is impossible for us to validate them. The reviewer stayed with us for 4 days and had ample opportunities to voice her concerns, we live on site. We did... More

Our family of four stayed in the Nuthatch Cabin for a one night getaway. We absolutely loved it! We opened the door to the cabin to find the faux fireplace going and the lights on. The owners had it all prepared for a warm welcome! What a cozy way to start out our getaway! The owners were gracious enough to... More

We just got home from a short 2-night stay in the Chestnut Cabin, a quick, relaxing getaway before the busy holiday season. Everything was wonderful & we can't wait to visit again! The cabins are convenient enough to main roads, but secluded enough that it really felt like a retreat. The Chestnut Cabin is charming and warm, very clean and... More

We enjoyed Chestnut Cabin Oct 22 to the 25, 2013 and would definitely stay again and hopefully longer the next time. Had our lunch soon after arriving, on the wrap around porch.

We had a wonderful week's stay in the Chestnut Cabin. The cabin was very clean, nicely furnished, kitchen was well equipped and a very comfortable bed. Location is great, you feel secluded but are close enough to Lake Lure and Chimney Rock for groceries and the great restaurants in the area. Also, the Blue Ridge Parkway is only about 30... More

We needed a quick 1-night Saturday night stay and this worked out well for us. It's not on the river or the lake but it's also not $150/night either. We did the Chimney Rock combo which included ticket to that park

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A wonderful small 5 room lodge surrounded by beautiful landscape gardens in a semi secluded setting only 2 miles from Chimney Rock Park and 1/2 mile from the Lake Lure Beach and marina area. Also there are 4 traditional log cabins in the grounds all with full kitchens, king/queen beds, and double jacuzzis in the master bedroom, ideal for that romantic getaway. All the cabins are set on their own 1/2 acre wooded lots. You have full use of our boat dock area on Lake Lure for swimming/fishing or take out the free canoe and explore beautiful Lake Lure. We also have a commercial boat licence and operate guided pontoon boat trips of Lake Lure during the summer months. ... more   less
