We just returned from a 6 night stay at the Sourwood and the experience was just perfect. The Inn is a very lovely Arts and Crafts design and the warm service was top notch. We stayed in the Sassafras Cabin, which is located a hundred yards or so from the main inn. The cabin was comfortable, clean and pretty. Kacia is a great chef creating excellent meals several nights a week. I would recommend eating at the Inn for dinner at least once. We dined at the inn twice and both meals were great and reasonable as well. Each morning we enjoyed a full breakfast in a perfect setting. Do not miss the French Toast! The inn keepers and staff could not have been nicer. We so enjoyed our conversations with Nat, who is a wealth of knowledge in so many areas. The inn is about 20 minutes from Asheville and the mountain roads and long driveway entrance may seem challenging for some. I personally did not find this an issue and liked being up on Elk Mountain with all of it's scenic beauty.
