“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

The room was clean. The bed was comfortable. The management really understands hospitality.

I will definitely seek this place out again the next time I hike to some of North Carolina's waterfalls.

Room Tip: Room 303 has a fireplace.

I hesitate to write this review because I don't want people to find this spot . yet the owners deserve to be successful, The Laurelwood Mountain Inn is quaint quiet and clean, it is within minutes of many waterfalls and other breath taking vistas in the Carolina and Georgia Mts. Done in natural wood decor and surrounded by woodlands and Quaint shops it is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. The price is very Fair. We have been here many times and will return as the owners know that upkeep and beauty go hand in hand as the years continue.

Room Tip: all rooms are nice it depends on how much you want they have simplistic motel style rooms to balco...

We wanted to stay in the mountains too see the leaves change and this inn was in through perfect location. Close to many wonderful waterfalls and just a short drive to the brp. Rooms were a great value and clean. Staff was very inviting and informative. The town itself seems to close by 6 but the inn is great and I'd stay again no questions asked.

After a visit through Highland we came into Cashier's knowing we needed to find a place to stay. Having not booked anything ahead of time we knew finding a place to stay would be difficult. Cashier's has no main stream hotels/motels here. Anyway, we lucked out in finding a room at this Inn, due to a cancellation just minutes before we called.

The initial reaction is what a cute, quaint place. The feelings continued as we went into our room (a standard room) and was wowed by the scene outside the back window. No trash cans or ugly sites, rather a charming landscaped area with flowers. The Inn is old and does have the smell that only older hotels can acquire, but we loved the vintage smell. Inside our room had a rustic smell, and we were amazed at how much room such a small room afforded.

Overall, it is a pleasant experience, it has a touch of romanticism in the air (for me, the diehard romantic...for my husband, not so much). Anyway, I would recommend this place. I think for the money, it is a good deal.

7 couples stayed Saturday nite to attend Sapphire Valley Car Show with our Atlanta Car Club. VERY CLEAN & recently well-restored, small Inn. The standard rooms, though small, are an incredible value & include efficient air conditioning, cable TV, fridge, ceiling fans, coffee maker, wifi & spotless bathrooms. Deluxe & Suite rooms in separate buildings are an even better value with added amenities & porches. Manicured, central landscaped area has BBQ/picnic area with small creeks. On-site manager was very friendly & accommodating to our group. Their website representation is completely accurate. Easy walking distance to Cashiers shops & eateries. Future plans include adding a small lake & green area at back of property. Highly recommended for relaxed stays at a VERY reasonable rate. (Rates are kept low by no food service on-site.)

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms closest to the highway entrance as the Inn is only a few yards off HWY 17.

Such a natural setting that took me back to childhood vacations. Wish I could be enthusiastic about the walking trail, but crossing the highways is dangerouse. The lodging was clean and pleasant. Nevertheless, if we return to the area, we will try to locate in nearby Highlands.

My wife and I spent the night in Cashiers while motorcycle touring Western N. Carolina and E. Tennessee. The little family owned motel was perfect - not the Hilton, but then, we didn't want the Hilton! We love to find these little locally owned, funky places to stay. Much better than the standard "cookie-cutter" rooms in the chain hotels. The standard rooms here are small, but very clean, and have a rustic mountain feel - pine paneling, exposed beams. The grounds are excellent - little gazebos and a nice front porch for relaxing, and a pea-gravel parking lot that actually adds to the feel of the place (no hot asphalt and stripes!). Little bubbling water gardens and streams. And there is a nice walking trail that connects the entire village - very pleasant evening stroll. We highly recommend this place.
