Romantic....we stayed in #23. A key unlocks the door to this quaint bedroom with a king-sized bed covered in a quilt. Windows with original panes that overlook the town square, rain softly falling, steam radiators that clank warming the air and the soul. Lovely hard-wood floors, and a private, roomy bathroom with lots of hot water. Mysterious: after checking in we went to a nearby cemetery where my relative is buried. Upon returning I put the key in the door, pushed the door open but felt resistance. I pushed a little harder and discovered a bag that was previously sitting on the dresser was now sitting on the floor directly behind the door. And, the small personal fan that was also sitting on the same dresser - upright - was now turned upside down. Can't explain it but in no way did it dampen our spirits during our stay. Kim checked us in and we met Sawyer when checking out. Both were kind and gracious. Since the restaurant is closed they gave us breakfast vouchers to Appalachian Java located on the square...delicious! We definitely plan to go back - especially when NC opens up and we can visit the eclectic offering of retail shoppes, book stores, coffee houses, etc.…
Spent the night here last night while visiting in the area. It was right on the central town square in Burnsville, overlooking the Christmas lights and the mountains in the distance. Built around many years ago, the central area used to be where the stagecoach would pull in, according to the young lady working when I arrived. I was told that Elvis had stayed here, and (by other folks) that the Inn was allegedly haunted. I can't vouch for either statement, but the Inn WAS well decorated and charming, especially with the Christmas decorations up and lit. I took an evening stroll around the square, and ate at one of the many local eateries that are available within walking distance of the Inn's front door. The room, number 23, was of adequate size, clean, and well lighted. It also fronted the square so had a view of both that and the mountains beyond. The bathroom was clean and well supplied with the needed amenities, with plenty of hot water. Now, for those of you more accustomed to modern hotels, you need to anticipate that the old wooden floors will creak, the bed will squeak, and the radiators that heat the rooms will pop and bang now and then. I was used to all that sort of thing so it did not keep me from sleeping well. I might have found a light chair useful to sit in while using the top of the chest of drawers as a makeshift table, but I moved the armchair over and it worked fine. I was sent a prompt email/text after reserving my room giving me the front door code (altho' I arrived early enough not to use it), and the keybox code for my room key, altho' the nice lady working the lobby showed me the room and got my key out for me. They also had water, tea, and coffee in the lobby, and were quite helpful in directing me to various eateries in the area. If, like myself, you plan to stay here in the off season, be aware that several of the local restaurants close during the time around January-February, or have restricted hours/days of operation. I hope when I am in the area next time to be able to stay with them again.…
First time in this small, mountain-town historic hotel with the feel of the 1800's. After traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway to view the changing leaves, this was an appropriate ending of the day. Love the homey feel of the lobby with the wood-burning fireplace and comfy sofa. Many of the rooms of the hotel were combined during the renovation so that two rooms are now one room and a bath. The resulting rooms are very spacious. Large, comfortable beds and large bath (shower only). Plenty of electrical outlets (and they thought to provide extension cords for convenience). Our view was of the back of the property, which was quiet and well screened with trees. The staff was helpful and shared the history of the hotel. The hotel uses a security coded electronic lock at night for entrance, so remember the code, although we were given the innkeeper's cellphone number to text in case we needed anything during our stay. The Innkeeper's family lives on the 3rd floor. The continental breakfast was adequate. They have a beautiful old-fashion hotel dining for white linen service; wish they could serve a full meal. Several restaurants within walking distance, although the hotel did not have the menus for each. They also rent out the entire 16-bedroom facility for weddings, family reunions, etc.…
This is my first time to stay here at Nu Wray. Very easy check in and a very kind staff. Great continental breakfast. Excellent beds and very nice rooms. I will definitely be coming here again. Thanks so much!!!
We booked the entire Inn 1.5 years in advance. The office staff answered all of our questions via email quickly and efficiently as we made preparation for our arrival on June 16, 2019 for a three night stay. Louisa and another lady gave us an hour tour of the place once we arrived which really helped as it is a very large beautiful facility, I have to add that Louisa checked in with us often to make sure that all our needs were met, she was great! Rooms were clean & stocked with supplies for our stay. The kitchen was a real hit for those that like cooking. Lawns and deck made for a very enjoyable time. Burnsville has a real gem!
