We didn't stay at the Lake Lure Inn and Spa but went for brunch on our way out of town. The doorman was smacking gum and playing on his iPhone as we entered. I had to speak to him first before he even looked up to acknowledge our arrival. There was a wait for a table and there weren't many people ahead of us. We sat for a while before we were greeted by our server and when she did arrive, she looked like she had just rolled in from a night of heavy drinking (which seemed to be the theme among the serve staff). There was a great variety of food at the buffet and it wasn't extraordinary....just your average breakfast. On a positive note, the omelets were fantastic and the omelet chef was friendly and cheerful. Overall, the place seemed dirty (there was a brown substance on the wall by my chair that seemed to be there a long time) and just tired. And I agree with other reviewers.....the old portraits were just creepy. If you don't mind ho-hum food, this is your place for brunch - otherwise, find another place as there are many historical locations in this area with much better food and atmosphere.
