“Wonderful”
Reviewed 2 November 2009

If you are looking for seclusion, nature's beauty, and luxurious accomodations, this is the place. It is located about 5 miles outside of Cashiers on Glenville Lake. There are lake views from the main building, but there is a short walk for lake access. The main building is a recently built victorian style mansion. We stayed in a nearby (100 yards away) beautiful four apartment quadroplex. That description does not adequetly describe the large and luxurious accomodations that are all a part of the large property. The host and hostess are very gracious, and offer evening wine and snacks. The hostess, Clare, is a hiker and guide for those who like a vigorous hike, and included us in her excursions with friends. The area is located near wonderful waterfallsand hiking trails. Breakfasts were great. This is truely a four star event.

After hiking the lower White Water Falls 5 mile trial, we then drove our weary bodies to the Innisfree INN bed and breakfast. The Inn was gorgeous. We were offered juice and cookies and then went to our room the Emily Bronte in the garden house. Gas logs were burning in the fireplace. The fireplace could be seen from the bedroom and the bathroom. The room had a canopy king sized bed. There was sherry to drink by the fireplace and soft violin music was playing. The best part was a tub big enough for two +. We climbed in the tub with our sherry and washed the weariness away. There was also a balcony that over looked the beautiful property. There was only one chair on the balcony though. There was also a large walk-in shower with a glass wall so that you could look out the window and see the lawn while you showered. We then headed back to the Inn for complimentary wine and cheese. The cheese was very fine and the two large glasses of wine after the sherry gave us a nice buzz. The next morning breakfast was served in our room at the table by the bay window. It was a huge disappointment. After being pampered the day before I expected great things from breakfast. We were given a quiche loaded with mushrooms and onions and it tasted reheated. It was not edible. We were given a fruit cup, but the fruit was not very fresh. There were two pieces of bacon and no muffins or Danish as expected by a bed and breakfast. If I stayed there again I would differently ask what was for breakfast.

  • Liked — The Room, the bed and the bath room
  • Disliked — The breakfast was a big disappointment
