BALSAM MOUNTAIN INN - Yes, is old [historic I should say] - Yes, the bathrooms are small – Yes, the room’s acoustic are bad….but IS CHARMING! Sitting on a 100 ft. porch in one of the many rocking chairs, sipping coffee or wine and watching butterflies hovering around you, is very unwinding! Expensive vista, chaste air, and tranquility of the setting perfectly surrogated for TV or Internet [although the latest can be catchable on Wi-Fi provided]. Gourmet breakfast served outdoors or inside a veranda is a treat that can be topped with a dinner offered at evenings. Grilled trout, accompanied with a bottle of wine included in the two night accommodation package offered by Living Social, was superb. Overall we had a great stay and enjoyed almost instant access to the Blue Ridge Parkway …
- 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
