We just got back from a quick weekend trip and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are perhaps a bit dated, but met my expectations from reading other reviews and viewing pictures. My wife probably would have liked the rooms to be a bit more upscale, but they were fine by my standard...clean, warm, and cozy (Silverbell). The horseback riding was a lot of fun and we thought it was reasonably priced. Based on some of the reviews I was a bit unsure of the food but it was all wonderful....perhaps a highlight of the trip for me as I grew up on this type of food (fried chicken, baked ham, biscuits, grits, country fried steak). The grounds were beautiful and the staff and family were extremely pleasant and quick to answer questions and give background on the rich history. We did a long hike, sat by the beautiful fireplace, and enjoyed conversation with the other guests. We also stopped in Waynesville and enjoyed a nice lunch and a trip to the Mast General Store. We will definitely be coming back!
