“Sweet and Lovely”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2012 via mobile

This sweet renovated motel had great rooms, and the landscaping was amazing. The water feature outside our Huge screened in porch was just wonderful to listen to as we relaxed, and we were able to leave the double doors open to the screened in porch to let in the fresh mountain air while we slept. We had room 301, and for the price the room was spacious and comfy. Our little girl loved the play ground nearby our room. The Inn is conveniently located across the street from two great cafes for breakfast, and a few restaurants for lunch or dinner. We are already planning a future visit, and the looking forward to staying in room 303, which has a fireplace. Cashiers is a great walking town, very sweet and fun to visit.

Stayed July 2012, travelled with family

We loved our getaway to Cashiers and our cozy stay at Laurelwood Mountain Inn. It is a vintage motel that has been nicely redone. The rooms are very small but spotless with updated bathrooms with tile. We loved the woodwork throughout. I was concerned about the noise level with the smallness, but we never heard a soul. Walked to breakfast every morning at the cute local coffee shop right next door. Can walk to all the shops as it sits right in town but yet has a feeling of being out a bit. Lovely new common area with sink, microwave, table with lots of books/games. Fireplace with sitting areas makes this feel more like a bed and breakfast (but breakfast is on your own :). The owners were very friendly, as well as helpful when we asked for help for hiking trails. We loved our stay there and will plan on doing it again soon!!

Room Tip: They have cottages that we did not see but heard they were very nice.

I traveled from TN and have stayed at least 3 times here. The rooms are well appointed and much to our delight came with a kitchen that was perfect for our needs. I traveled once there to rendezvous with grandchildren. They loved the playground and waterfalls and ponds. It was peaceful yet located close enough to the hub of town that we had the best of both worlds! The nearby walking trails and farmer's market were a nice surprise. We will plan on returning in the future because besides wonderful hospitality from the owners, Bob and Lise Dews, the price is right!! Carolyn Lawson Johnson City, Tn

Our first visit hooked us. We love the quaint (non-chain) motel atmosphere, the service, and the lovely scenery.

We have been coming back regularly for a long time. The setting is truly “picture book” beautiful – a great representation of the North Carolina Mountains. Since the beginning, it has become our favorite haven for rest and relaxation. The location is great – within walking distance of most of Cashiers craft shops and unique restaurants. Not many things could come between us and our annual visit in the spring.

We always find the motel and grounds clean and well cared for. And there are always changes and improvements – like the cabins, and the upcoming pond.

The owners and staff are always friendly and helpful - going out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

It’s a bargain - stay there and get hooked like we did.

Janet and Harlan, Montgomery, AL

Room Tip: We like the corner room.

Laurelwood Mountain Inn is meticulously maintained. The room was in perfect condition and had all the little touches I would only expect in someone's home. The gazebo's were a wonderful touch. I sat in two of them, in the woods, with the flowers all around, listening to the streams running right near by. And the trout in the pond were an extra too, with trout food right there for me to feed them. It is immaculate, sooo comfortable, friendly staff and just great! Great value. Great convenient locatio. I will definitely stay here again soon.

Interesting old motel that has been updated very nicely. Offers cottages and motel rooms. Innkeeper very helpful and chatty about the area - he made a point of talking with me each day. I chose a motel room because I was travelling alone and found it to be a very good value. I would stay there again, wish I could've stayed longer, and recommend it to anyone.

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.
