Our family decided to head to the mountains instead of the beach this year for our family vacation and I'm so glad we did! We are a party of 8, ages 5 to 75 and we all really enjoyed ourselves! My husband and I stayed in the Richardson room and were very pleased with the accommodations. We fished, rented a... More

The lake environment is gorgeous, the golf course is stunning, however the "inn" falls a bit short. One can easily rate it a 3 or 4 depending on what you run into during your stay. Given that Natural Retreats has just recently taken over the Inn, most of the rental homes etc - hopefully a more positive transition will unfold... More

We had a spectacular room with a nice view of Lake Toxaway from our screened porch. It was so quiet we thought we were the only ones staying at the inn... but the parking lot was full! Our sleep was very sound... This is wonderful, romantic inn... a good place to get away from it all and revive yourself ...and... More

We were looking for lake side resort in the old style and a drivable distance from Charleston, SC. Greystone Inn seemed perfect. I read a few reviews on trip advisor and I was a bit hesitant, but we decided to try it anyhow - and glad we did! The Inn is just perfect! Old world charm,with a few nice modern... More

We stayed in the Moltz Room; very comfortable with a lovely view of the lake, fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Staff very friendly and helpful. Amazing breakfast next to the lake; worth waiting on an outside table if the weather allows. Very nice welcome basket with goodies we saved for our hike the next day. One of the best massages my...

I wanted somewhere special for my 19 year old son and I to take our first mother-son vacation. I wanted outdoor opportunities and luxury accommodations. We searched a few options but were sold by the enthusiasm of the staff the first time we spoke with them and the convenience of the location, less than 3 hours by car. We have... More

We stayed at the Greystone for four nights last week. We had stayed at this property eight years ago and loved the hotel, grounds and staff so decided to return. What a disappointment. Our room The Richardson was a large nice room with a deck overlooking the lake. It has a fireplace which we did not use as it is... More

We stayed here for our anniversary, and the environs are magnificent. The hotel itself is beautiful, and the rooms are nice. We stayed in the Firestone which was private, quiet and had a lovely view. This place has the makings of a great hotel in a one-of-a-kind setting. That being said, while the food is good, the restaurant needs to... More

I was concerned about the changes and had read negative reviews on this site since the new owners had taken over. I called them with my concerns. The person I spoke to assured me that... More

Thank you for your feedback. As you may know, the Inn is a historical property that we and the previous owners have gone through great lengths to preserve the character and quality of. With old buildings such as the Inn there will be certain quirks that are unavoidable, but we do strive to ensure the comfort of our guests. I... More
