We spent a couple of nights here on our road trip in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Lovely old home updated. The whole house contains art and artifacts from the hosts’ travels. Our room was spacious and well appointed. Breakfast was absolutely wonderful. Breakfast casserole one day and French toast the next. Convenient to downtown Burnsville, a neat little town. A short drive to Mount Mitchell, our goal.

We stayed 2 nights in October. Bedroom was very clean, and the beds were very comfortable. Nice room, lots of windows, and a cute little sitting area. The bathroom was tiny, but adequate. Breakfast was very good, especially the 2nd morning with a delicious vegetable egg bake. I would love the recipe. It’s a very old home, the carpet could use replacing, and the toilet was very low height, but still a nice place to stay in Burnsville. It was very close, within walking distance to the town. Not a 4 or 5 star hotel, but a very pleasant experience.

A friend and I visited Terrell House for a quick weekend jaunt to see friends nearby. We were less than impressed. Our host and hostess seemed absolutely miserable on the very few occasions they interacted with us. We arrived much later than we expected and they were out for the evening already. No worries there... the housekeeper was friendly enough and she showed us in. First impression... Could be a nice place, with a bit of work, but still, the room was comfortable even though it was quite dated. And with the many windows open, and thanks to cooling weather, we didn't have to brave the old window air conditioning unit meant to cool the room. The reviews I'd read all spoke highly of the offered breakfast, but we found it incredibly average at best. We did enjoy the company of a fellow houseguest that joined us at the table, but could have done without our host's lecture on masks and the pandemic. We skipped both the breakfast and the host's snarky attitude the next morning as we had an early flight. We were not surprised at all when we noticed the FOR SALE sign. This host was obviously a bit burned out. We may try it again once it sells; but, not until then.

The house is a beautiful house you can tell its very old. Upon entering the smell was very musty reaffirming the houses age. We got to the room and the presentation was acceptable and clean however, the ac unit looked age and did not cool the whole room a window was open causing it to be very hot. When i asked for a fan to plug in i wss told to try the ceiling fan which we had but it was rocking like it was gonna fall out of the ceiling so we chose not to use it. Beds were uncomfortable. Shower smelled of mildew upon entering. When we told the owner we were leaving due to being uncomfortable he tried to charge me for a 2 night stay when we only booked for one night. The conversation then became confrontational as i was trying to find my records of booking the hotel and he still insisted on us paying for two nights. I proved to him i booked for one night and even though we did not stay the night he still made me pay 100 dollars even though we were highly unsatisfied. We arrived at the hotel at 3 pm so we were not there very long before we decided to leave. It was a very hot, uncomfortable situation in which you do not want to find yourself in after working outside all day in the heat and traveling 3 hours to get there. They also did not make us wear masks and the lady who checked us in wore it to check us in only, the man did not wear a mask and neither did the other lady on the premises. The owners are selling the house and i can see why it needs updated amenaties. Youd think being in the hospitality industry youd be more accommodating and respectful to your guest if they express they are uncomfortable and departing. I was shocked the man who owned the place was so hostile about the situation. He almost made me pay double for not even staying the one night we booked!

Mike and Laura are perfect hosts. They are lovely people. Breakfast was excellent each morning. My room was very comfortable, very clean and welcoming. I loved the front porch rockers every morning and the back patio area every evening. Both very relaxing quiet areas to just take in the sounds of the birds, squirrels, hummingbirds and smell the flowers!!! They have a quaint sitting room w lots of books and TV. There is plenty of parking on site. I would highly recommend a stay at the Terrell House!!!!
