My husband and I stayed four nights at this beautiful rustic Inn and enjoyed every moment of our stay. I found a problem with the room assigned to us on arrival. Marty , the desk clerk immediately changed our room which I found quite satisfactory. The bed with fluffy overlay on mattress along with pillows were very comfortable. I loved being able to open the windows on cool nights. All of this made for a very restful comfortable sleep and one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in. The rooms and surrounding areas were very clean with no odors. The owners Doug and Aileen along with their staff were very accommodating and willing to make your stay the best ever. If you needed anything they were there to help. We enjoyed the afternoon wine and cheese hour. The front porch is fabulous with those wonderful rocking chairs. It was most peaceful and relaxing sitting in these rocking chairs.and enjoying the natural beauty of the surrounding area. I liked the selection of books available to read as one sat in the comfortable couch or big chairs in lobby or on porch. Refrigerators are available for guests on each floor which we utilized for cold drinks. Tthe second floor lounge and game room was a great place, unfortunately we did not have time to utilize this room. You do not want to miss breakfast served in the dining room, breakfast is scumptious.. Guest get 10% off breakfast. We wanted to get an early start the day we left, but did not want to skip breakfast. We really appreciated Cheff Sean having our delicious breakfast ready for us. Great place for a relaxing quiet stay with friendly staff to make you stay even greater. Best place to stay in Chimney Rock or Lake Lure.
