“Home Away From Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Very relaxing, low key, quiet, clean, comfortable. Many rooms with beautiful views and fireplaces; a wide variety of accommodations, all with charm and character. The staff is very professional, cheerful, kind, thoughtful/considerate and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a fireplace(all gas) if you want one, some rooms also have jacuzzi tubs.

Pine Crest Inn is a beautiful Inn in a lovely setting. Whenever I stay there for business I promise myself that I will return simply for the pleasure of it. The Inn is a Select Registry Inn, and the décor, service and overall experience are indicative of this. The rooms and grounds are immaculate, the service is impeccable and the food is always exceptional. When I stay at this Inn, I never want to leave! Spectacular in every season - late spring is stunning with the trees and flowers in bloom and late October is absolutely gorgeous. I listed the pool and spa as excellent since as a guest I have had access to the pool at the Tryon Country Club.

Room Tip: Oak Cottage, Stone Cottage, Twain Cottage and Swayback Cabin are my favorites! I especially love th...

After a week of staying in noisy Inns, we sought refuge in a quiet retreat. We booked two days at the Pine Crest and it was wonderful! The grounds are beautiful, area very quiet, and the Woodcutters cabin where we stayed was nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed, large modern bathroom with dual sinks, jacuzzi tub and separate shower. A wonderful place to just relax, forget everything, and take in the lovely surroundings by sitting on the porch and rocking away the time. A quaint, well kept gazebo is also available for relaxing and enjoying a good book or chat. Breakfast was plentiful, tasty but only a bit better than average Inn fare with the time arranged in advance. Afternoon cookies and tea were excellent. Staff keeps busy but is cheerful and most accomodating to your every request. Parking is close and convenient. As an additional option, guest can choose to have dinner at the Pine Crest (prearranged time). The dinners were extraordinarily plentiful, but below average quality, and pricey. Each night, three different entree choices are provided. The first night I had chicken (you get half a chicken). The second night, I ordered NY Strip Steak. The size of the steak was equivalent to a family sized meatloaf and just as thick. It was cooked to order but contained more gristle than it should have for the price (over $30). Appetizers are more than big enough for 2-3 people and were tasty. Service in the Inn restaurant was very good. Overall, the food quality is OK but the prices are high for the quality of food at dinner.

Room Tip: Entire area is quiet. Woodcutters cottage was very quiet and away from parking areas.

We were visiting relatives in Asheville and decided to give this inn a try. We found the location quiet and charming and the staff was exceptional. We stayed in the Dogwood Room and loved it. The quality of the breakfast was outstanding as well. Would certainly recommend the Pine Crest to anyone who's anywhere near the area.

My recent visit to Tryon, North Carolina was highlighted by warm hospitality, gracious service and the beautifully appointed Treetop Cottage at the 1906 Pine Crest Inn. This cozy Country Inn is the perfect spot for a weekend getaway. We arrived late Friday afternoon to a delicious assortment of gourmet cheeses and our favorite wine. Relaxing on the porch of the Treetop Cottage, with the beautiful flower gardens in our view, was the perfect start to a lovely evening.
Saturday morning breakfast was truly a treat with banana walnut pancakes and applewood smoked bacon. All day Saturday we visited antique shops in neighboring Landrum, SC and hiked to the 20ft water fall at Pearson Falls. I highly recommend this hidden treasure to all looking for a quiet place to unwind and reconnect or to see the beauty of the fall foliage . Don't forget to bring your camera and a lite sweater also for the cool nights on the porch.

Room Tip: The Treetop Cottage was perfect, but when we toured the other rooms and cottages they were equally a...

For a Select Registry Inn, we were a little surprised at how poorly kept our room was. The overall grounds of the inn are nice. However, our room was outdated. We were in the Oak Room. The lamps in our room are very cheap & the couch needs to be thrown away. We didn't even feel comfortable sitting on it, and the blanket that was draped over the couch didn't smell clean at all. There were spider webs in several corners as well. There was also a fixture in the bathroom that had apparantly been removed, but the screws were left visible in the wall. We also chose to eat dinner at the inn. This was also a mistake. First of all, it's very overpriced. We both got the NY Strip. I asked for mine to be cooked medium. It came back almost well done and the steak had no flavor. Prior to dinner, we were supposed to receive a complimentary glass of wine or sherry between 5-6. No one offered us anything & we didn't see anything out other than some iced coffee and tea. The best thing about this inn for us was the breakfast and the coffee.

We enjoyed our stay at Pine Crest. It isn't extravagant, but nice. The bathroom shower and tub could be updated. The breakfast menu is very limited unlike other bed and breakfasts that usually give you a few options. I didn't eat anything because I didn't like the only option available. Overall, the staff is very nice.
