My fiancé and I fell in love with All Saint's church in Linville, so we wanted it to be the sight of our ceremony. Further research led to us discovering Eseeola Lodge and its Camp, which fit right in with our rustic vision. We could not have been more happy, it was the start of a very disappointing experience. We... More

There are not many of these fine resorts (MAP) left...probably some of the best and consistent food you will ever experience ....great french chef...it maybe on the pricey side for the faint of heart, but you get what you pay for...the golf course is superb...a few minutes from Grandfather Mountain, Blue Ridge Parkway, Blowing Rock and Boone...great for summer and...

This was a beautiful spot -- the grounds were gorgeous! The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The lodge has a rustic feel -- creaking floors and lots of wood -- but is also very luxurious. There's a reading room full of books, several fireplaces with comfortable seating, and a great restaurant. Would love to return.

a very unusual hotel that is totally different from the area that surrounds it - the service is pleasant but can be overwhelming at meal times when staff were often too attentive - the golf was enjoyable but it is a hard course to play for the first time as it has many hidden 'traps' - we found that all...

Wonderful...quiet and peaceful. We stayed at the lodge so we could play at the Linville Golf Course, which was equally outstanding. The food at the Lodge was exceptional and we appreciated the fact that you had to dress appropriately to eat there. So many good places today are lowering their dress standard and just bringing themselves down. Fortunately Eseeola Lodge... More

Recently traveled up to Linville to play golf at nearby Grandfather Golf Course. Was looking for an upscale place to stay and Eseeola was a great fit. Having visited in late May, the hotel grounds were in great shape. Beautiful flowers and scenery around the lodge. We took a trip on down to Blowing Rock for lunch when we arrived.... More

As Charlie's Krualt stated there is no better place to be in America than Grandfather Mountain and Linville in May. The housekeepers keep the lovely decorated resort spotless. The entire property is adorned with beautiful flowers. Staff are attentive and unobtrusive. The included breakfast was perfect. The resort has beautiful amenities and is very convenient for enjoying the Blue Ridge... More

This getaway weekend was a gift from my daughters and we had a wonderful time. The lodge and grounds are gorgeous, food is terrific and the service is amazing. It is pricey but worth it. Nearby are the Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, LInville Gorge and several darling little towns. I hope to return to the Esseola Lodge again and... More
