I have stayed at the Pine Crest twice. I returned thinking my first impression may have just been unwarranted. We must have had "a bad cabin" but I now think it must need a lot of renovation. Either that or the prices should reflect the accommodations more accurately. I last paid $960 for two nights in a cabin with three... More

As you enter the property you are taken by the beauty of the grounds. Multiple cottages and grounds that bring you a feeling of going back in time. Guest services were helpful, smiling and a wonderful way to be treated. Truly the only disappointment is the king deluxe room. Outdated but clean but nothing like the pictures on the website....

In the small town of Tryon NC sits a beautiful inn with a friendly and amazing staff. From the moment we arrived until we left, they took care of every detail you can imagine. Our personal chef served us at breakfast and and the receptionist served as a tour guide. This property is famous for the restaurant that is open... More

We visited the Inn this weekend and had a 2 bedroom suite in the English Cottage. The carpet and air conditioning units were so old and smelly, it was very uncomfortable to spend the night inside. The second morning my nose was stuffy and reading the history of the place (old tuberculosis sanatorium) I couldn't stop to wonder if I... More

This lovely inn is located on a hilltop outside of Tryon, NC. The inn itself dates back -- as one might expect -- to 1906, and additional two-storey, multiple-room cottages have been added later. Though these don't have quite the charm and character of the main house, the rooms are comfortable with pine panelling and windows that open to the... More

My wife took me here for my Birthday. Thought overall quality was very poor. Breakfast was served very quickly and cold. Stayed in one of the suites because supposedly the pace was booked when we reserved but the place was empty. No where near the quality level we expect when we stay in a place on the Select Registry. Will... More

Beautiful grounds. Enjoyed the fireplace in the room and rocking chairs on the front porch. The restaurant is intimate and the wait staff does a great job. There is a small lounge and a nice wine list at the restaurant. Would recommend at least one night eating dinner at the hotel. You won't be disappointed.

This is a must see! We rented the woodcutters cottage with our three year old grandson and from the moment we arrived were impressed. The bed was fabulous and the small living area with the small fridge made traveling with a child a breeze. Breakfast on the porch in the mountain air was just what we needed. Thanks to Linda... More

My daughter and I just returned from this lovely inn and had a wonderful time. From the moment we walked through the door, the inn keepers could not have been more gracious and helpful. We felt so at home, yet so well attended to - from the boxed breakfast to the assistance in making dinner reservations. The rooms were quite... More

We were attending a local equestrian event and arrived hoping to be spoiled after having spent many long hours in the summertime sun. We were not disappointed. The staff warmly greeted us, offered us something to quench our thirsts and then showed us to our room which was elegantly appointed and instantly made us feel pampered. The breakfast was, indeed,...
