I've stayed at Marilyn's Melrose Inn several times over the past year and have always found the staff to be courteous and helpful. Marilyn and Jim are the perfect hosts and make all feel welcome and wanted.
A chilled glass of wine or choice of dark or light lager beer will be offered on the porch upon arrival. Stimulating conversations follow with fellow travelers and local residents alike. (Tuesday evenings are special on the porch with local musician Brown Anderson playing and singing his original charming songs.)
Eight guest rooms from the King Equestrian to the exotic Jungle are a delight in theme decoration and offer a comfortable nights sleep.
Awake early to hot coffee just outside your door and have breakfast in the lovely dining room. Be expected to be surprised by the flavors of hot muffins and selected fruits that accompany the gourmet breakfast.
I’m looking forward to spending many more visits to Tryon and stayting at the Melrose Inn..
