Great hotel when visiting the Hendersonville Area. Very nice rooms and great staff. The breakfast was very good and satisfying along with the coffee and cookies. The fireplace and firepits were very beautiful.

We are in the western NC mountains often, and stay at different places each time. This was our first stay at this hotel. It is in a great location and the room was very nice to return to after exploring the surrounding areas.

We loved our stay at this hotel! The river view is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting on our balcony. The room was spotless and very spacious and comfortable. The pool and hot tub were so clean and a nice plus. Will definitely be back!
