This cabin was perfect for my husband, my dog and me to stay in. The lay out, design and construction are well done and very attractive. It is compact and has everything you could want. Great living room with lots of space which looks out onto a lovely large covered porch with a fantastic view. Full yet compact kitchen and dining room. Very comfortable bed with lots of storage space. Full bathroom with fluffy towels and bath products. The property is beautiful with great views of the surrounding mountains. There is an area below the cabin with lounging chairs and lights in the trees at night. The road going up to the cabin is a little challenging but well worth it. We will be back again!

We found this place by searching the internet for a nice place to stay in an upscale cabin. The website was professional and looked high end. We called and spoke to the owner and decided on one of the cabins that was “private and quiet”. When we got there it was not private, quiet or even clean. The cabin was dirty with an old torn sofa and white dog hair all over it. Though they had an air conditioning unit, it failed to cool the back bedroom. The sofa bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. In addition, there was quite a bit of road noise and the smells of the neighboring paper mill wafted our way. At $169 a night we we decided to find another option. At breakfast we were honest with the owners and they offered us to stay in the Inn which looked much nicer. He suggested a certain room on an upper floor. After packing up and carrying half our things up the stairs to the new room, we were informed that there would be roof people walking around and a bucket in our room to catch dripping water. I said, "Are you kidding me?" He then proceeded to disparage me and say I would never be satisfied. The silver lining is they refunded all of our money and we ended up finding an amazing cabin on a beautiful river.

Sometimes you can't win for losing. That was the case with this guest. And while I have never responded to a critical review in this manner, I feel the need to do so in this unique case. The challenges with this guest began during the booking process during which we were completely honest about our location and setting. As we acknowledge on our website, we are located near a busy highway and for guests who are sensitive to sound or who prefer absolute quiet, we always recommend choosing another destination, often suggesting alternatives. Fortunately for most guests, however, the proximity to the highway is considered an asset as it affords quicker access to downtown Asheville and other area amenities and attractions. I guess not with these folks. In spite of our honest effort to accurately explain our situation, this guest booked her own reservation in this cabin anyway. Regarding privacy, ours is a twelve-acre property. On those twelve acres are the Inn and six cabins. And while the buildings are in sight of one another, none of them is in such close proximity to the others that "privacy" has ever been an issue. Until now. As for the paper mill, I'm not sure how we bear responsibility for that! The mill this guest refers to is located over in the NEXT COUNTY. For the most part it is rarely an issue for us or the Asheville area. That said, however, on infrequent mornings and depending on weather conditions, we do enjoy the fruits of its labor. It's unfortunate that these folks were impacted. But, it's not fair that they chose to hold us responsible for it. Regarding the condition of the cabin, I plead guilty. However. the cabin these folks chose to book is CLEARLY identified as one of our three pet friendly cabins in ALL of our marketing materials. As such, there may have been pet hair in the cabin. And while we do our best to remove all traces of visiting pets after their stays, we must have missed something in this case. For this, I'm sorry. Point well taken, however, and we'll do a better job with housekeeping in the future. When these folks registered their complaints at breakfast that morning, we quickly offered to upgrade and move them into the Inn where we have 5 rooms...4 of which were available The 5th was under repair for a roof leak (hence the bucket). They INSISTED, however, that the room under repair was the one they wanted. We suggested that they choose from our other rooms, including our suite, the largest room in the Inn. They were not having it. They wanted THAT room. At this point, this guest plopped down in a chair our reception area, huffing and puffing, and making a huge scene in a public space. I did my best to placate this guest. But, she was not to be satisfied. It was at this point that I did something I've never done in the six years I've been an inn owner...I asked them to leave, explaining that it was clear to me that no matter what we did, they were not going to be satisfied and that I didn't want them staying at our property. We gave them their money back...all of it, including the night in the cabin...and they left. These days folks seem to melt down over the most inane situations, even when a business owner is doing his/her best to make a bad situation better. In this case, I chose to chalk this one up to CoVid or some other stress or circumstance beyond my control. I did my best to be hospitable and responsible to no avail. Our other reviews speak to the level of hospitality, quality and service we strive provide to our guests. But in this case, no matter what we did it was clear there wasn't going to be a "win-win" in the end. Like I said, sometimes you can't win for losing.

This was our first trip to Engadine Inn, and will not be our last. The Inn is a Beautiful and Charming home away from Home, and Tom and Rick make sure that you feel that way. The breakfast they cook in the morning is WOW, it is as if you are eating at a 5 Star restaurant. No one leaves breakfast hungry! Each room has its own unique charm, which pulls you into the history of the home. Make sure you read the book in your room about the history of the home!

We stayed in one of their cabins, it was so nice and beautiful. Only reason why I gave four stars instead of five is because when my husband sat down in one of the chairs outside it broke and the rugs near the sink were slippery I ended up slipping and hit my knee. But this was just a few seconds of our trip. For the rest of the time we had a wonderful stay. I would recommend some rugs that are slip resistant for the kitchen area. Overall great experience.

Hello Anna. We appreciate your taking time to share your experience about your stay with us! I'm sorry to hear that one of the chairs broke. While there isn't much we can do about furniture and fixtures getting broken on the fly with normal use, I wish you had told us about it while you were here, however, so that we could replace it. Finding about it after the fact doesn't allow us the opportunity to make the situation right. As for the rug, we'll definitely take a look at it and will add some non-slip backing to it if it is warranted. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. Thanks for staying with us!

My husband & I were in the Cherokee Cabin for the weekend. He was won over with the price (less than $400 total); and I was ecstatic for the tub & fire place :) When we got there Friday evening, they had already put the wood in the fire place for us, as well as the coffee service we requested for the weekend. The whirlpool tub was so relaxing after an almost 6 hour drive Friday night. And there's a Dollar General Market not even half a mile from the cabin, so you can get pretty much anything you're going to need for your stay. Breakfast is not included with the cabins, but can be added for an additional charge. The owners were super nice; and we will definitely be back!
