We knew what to expect going into our trip, that this place was a throw back to a different time. There were no phones or tv's but there is decent wi-fi. The room we stayed in (#203) was old, (the inn opened over 100 years ago) but the sheets and towels were clean and the bed was comfortable. We asked for a room with a claw foot tub and had a nice sized bathroom. The rooms were small and you could hear the neighbors, but we were barely in the room and turned on a sound machine app when we went to sleep which provided a good night's sleep.
We ate breakfast and dinner at the inn both days. The dinner was outstanding, we enjoyed all parts of it. I was surprised at how good and reasonably priced everything was. The steak was cooked perfectly and the selection of vegetables was fresh and delicious. I was not crazy about breakfast. It was good, but did not compare to dinner. We had eggs, bacon, fruit, and a small muffin, plus yogurt and cereal. We ate in the smaller dining room each day and it had a great atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Overall, we had a nice weekend getaway and would return to the Balsam Mountain Inn again.
