This is the most wonderful inn! It is beautiful in a comfortably elegant way. There are so many areas to relax in, a game room, a library, the porch outside or on your own balcony. The multitude of windows give you a front row seat to the forest and mountains surrounding Sourwood. The food is outstanding and plentiful. But I... More

Wow! I am sharing this one with all our fabulous staff. I think they are mighty fine myself, but to hear such generous and heart-felt word from our guests is truly icing on the cake. Thank you! More

The Sourwood Inn is a gem of a B&B on the side of a mountain. Peaceful, meditative, relaxing, a true “get away.” We have all been on all kinds of vacations over the years, some of which you were glad to get back to work from because the vacation was exhausting. If you are tired of the vacation “rat race”... More

We stayed for two lovely nights in room 10 on the upper level. The location and the beautiful inn itself are worth the trip alone. Then you add in the wonderful hospitality of the owners/staff,the delicious meals and it is as close to nirvana as possible. It was worth every penny that we spent.

My husband and I stayed at Sourwood for our Anniversary. My in-laws kept our 8 month old. It was the perfect weekend. The room was beautiful, with an amazing view of the mountains. They built a fire for us -which we lit every evening and drank wine while enjoying the peace and quiet. The breakfast and dinner were amazing. We... More

My wife and I have been to the Sourwood Inn a few times and it is fantastic. I can't think of a more serene and refreshing getaway. Love everything about this place, the location, the food, the rooms, all perfect. Highly recommended.

There are few places that give you a true opportunity to rest the moment you walk in the door. The Sourwood inn is one of those rare gems that you have a hard time ever straying from because of its beauty and its and great customer service, and what's more – the food!

My husband and I don't get the opportunity to escape sans kids at all (for the last 9.5 years since we had kids). We recently had the chance for Grandma to come stay with them for the first time so we had to find a place. We thought Asheville would be fun and not too far from Charlotte. Friends of... More

Dana, Thank you! Your gracious and detailed review is so appreciated. I hope you are able to get away before 9 more years. As for the Oatmeal Pancakes, that is the only breakfast recipe we keep to ourselves...maybe you can come try them again;) More

I'm hesitant to post a review about the Sourwood Inn because I don't want others to discover this gem! We booked a weekend stay at Sourwood at the suggestion of a friend who's been going six years running and raving about it for years. We now understand why! From the warm comforting fireplace, snacks, and comfy couches that greeted us... More

Charming rooms, incredible location, fabulous food and wonderful attention to detail by Innkeepers, Susan, Anne and Nat. We were there in early December and unfortunately, not during a dinner service, but if Anne's oatmeal pancakes or Susan's goat cheese and spinach omelet where any indication, I suspect dinner is fabulous as well. The Inn was built specifically as a B&B:... More
