We visited the Waynesville for Labor Day wkend 2013, and on Sunday went for lunch at the Balsam Mountain Inn. It was superb, to say the least. What a great place, first the food was fabulous , totally delicious , the staff extremely friendly, and what a magnificent place, we walked around the hotel for a while, I felt that I had stepped back in history, I could just imagine the people arriving by train, going up to the hotel and walking around with their lovely outfits that were worn back then. It was totally relaxing, we sat on the rocking chairs in the porch, what a splendid and majestic view, can't wait to go back in late October. The colors of the trees will be gorgeous, something we don't get to see down in Florida.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Read, rest, ramble and romp at the Balsam Mountain Inn! Nestled among lofty Smoky Mountain peaks just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Balsam Mountain Inn was completed in 1908 to serve the highest railway depot in the east. Restored in 1991, the inn now welcomes travelers with 50 cheerful rooms, rocker-filled porches, a fine library and gracious dining. Plump pillows and soft comforters inspire pleasant dreams! In December, 2011, the Inn came once again to be owned by Merrily Teasley, the innkeeper who restored the structure two decades ago. An experienced rescuer of wonderful buildings, Teasley bought the derelict inn in 1990, and her certified rehabilitation effort helped the inn – already on the National Historic Register – experience a rebirth. ... more less
