WONDERFUL INN
It was very nice. It MORE than exceeded my expectations. The location, and views are awesome. The restaurant was fabulous. But what stood out the most was the courtesy and professionalism of every staff person we encountered there. We will definitely return!

Romantic and wonderful
Booked a stay here for a romantic weekend with my girlfriend. The staff was incredible! Everyone was friendly and accommodating. The room had an excellent view of Chimney Rock, I know some complained about the room size but I didn't find it to be an issue and I'm only in it to sleep. The building is beautiful inside and out, they have a nice fireplace as well as a Jacuzzi outside to wind down the day at. I did not get a chance to try lunch or dinner but breakfast was unexpectedly good every morning. I will definitely stay here again if I travel back to the area!

worth every penny. perfect for couples
Perfect for couples and families. Beautiful building and decor fits in with the small mountain town vibe. Gracious and friendly service from staff and owners. Rooms are clean and spacious. Very comfortable. The game room was a feature we enjoyed at night. We grabbed some wine and enjoyed the table games and billiards while in our pj's, a wonderful night out without having to leave the inn. Breakfast was amazing, one of the owners made the breakfast, it was apple walnut pancakes with sausage and a fruit slush/granita. all in all its the top spot to stay while in chimney Rock. Worth every penny.
