We love the history of this mountain inn. Originally built in 1884 for railroad travelers, it has remained a great place for all who appreciate and love historical buildings and traditions.
It is interesting to see how this great old hotel has met the challenges of modern safety requirements (sprinklers, fire alarms, etc.). The pipes are simply added beneath the ceilings (which suit me fine). I was fascinated with the addition of basic electricity in days gone by. The wiring was simply run up with walls and onto the ceiling (in plain view to this day). That also suits me fine. I love the chintz-pattern wallpaper and lacy curtains so popular in by-gone eras. We could have stayed at a modern hotel free using our points, but chose to pay the reasonable fee to stay at this historic inn.
We love the complimentary breakfast (grits, gravy, eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, coffee/juice). It is SO much better than the muffin continental breakfast at franchise hotels.
We also had dinner in the dining room on the evening of our stay. Bowls of green beans, corn, beets, potatoes, slaw, biscuits, apple sauce, fried chicken, etc. It was SO good and was simmered like Granny cooked food. Nothing was just microwaved out of a bag like modern restaurants. This is a real place where they serve real food!
We will return again and again.
