“Everything was excellent. We could not have been more satisfied!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2010

We (13 folks) stayed here for our annual corporate retreat. By renting the entire inn, we were able to use the upstairs lounge and lobby area exclusively for our meetings and casual gatherings. We brought our own alcoholic beverages and served them from the kitchenette upstairs...perfect! The staff was gracious and easy to work during our entire stay. Most attendees plan to return at a later day with their friends or families. Michael's restaurant (attached bldg) was amazing as well! Delicious food, beautiful presentation, and twe had the option of eating inside or out. Of couse, the views are spectacular and the location is only 2 mi from the beach (and boat rides) at Lake Lure. Highly recommend!
