Surprised there were still leaves on the trees. Cliffside has 2 rooms and 3 bathrooms. The kitchen had everything you could ever need. The view of the creek from the patio was very relaxing. As always, love the complementary breakfast. Will definitely book this cottage again.

We have stayed here many times in this Peaceful, Comfortable, Clean & Private Cottage on the upper floor. Go to the Inn for a Superb Breakfast which is included in the price of the stay. Fire Pit & Mountain Views are "to die for" on the grounds of the chalet. No Television, Not Needed! Can hear Spring Creek from the... More

Hot Springs is a tiny little place hidden in mountains of western North Carolina. Chief claim to fame is that the Appalachian Trail runs right down the main street of town. My point is that this is a pretty strange spot to find a very elegant B&B. An Italinate/Victorian home built in mid 19th century was restored 20 years ago... More

The Mountain Magnolia Inn is a welcoming place to stay. We stayed in the Blue Heron Cottage on the French Broad River. The cottage was very clean and comfortable with a nice private deck on the water. The kitchen was well appointed. Even though I only used the coffee maker, I did notice the knives and such were good quality.... More

I stayed one night in the Octagon House with a friend when picking up my son from the Appalachian trail. The house was clean with 3 private bedrooms and one more public sleeping area. 3 baths too. Large living spaces for hanging out. Nothing luxury--older fixtures, furniture, etc but certainly beats a "cabin" and much cheaper than "the inn". AC... More

Thanks for you're nice review. This is the only property we manage for owners in town and it works out great. The property was built in the late 1800's and was the home of the town doctor. It is one of several hundred 8 sided houses built in the U.S. at the turn of the century. The owners are the... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Mountain Magnolia Inn while doing some AT hiking near Hot Springs, NC. The hosts were quite gracious even though we arrived during their dinner hour. The grounds and gardens are beautiful and well maintained with several seating areas for contemplation or conversation. The Inn is ideally located a 3-5 minute walk from the downtown... More

Elegant, quiet, beautiful setting. The Walnut room was tasteful and overlooked a beautiful portion of America. The staff was so accommodating and yet real people. We loved the Southern breakfast and the real conversations from the staff.

Our room was the 'Hideaway' at Fender's Bend, which was a two minute drive from the main inn. There were three rooms here. Two overlooked a stream. Our room faced the road. Parking for our room and the next door one is a little tight but manageable. The room was sweet and cozy and well stocked with everything: extra blankets,... More

The atmosphere is exquisite, the service was friendly, efficient, and perfectly timed, and the food was AMAZING. This was one of the BEST dining experiences I have ever had. If you are anywhere in the area, make it a priority to enjoy a meal here!

Stayed in the Walnut room. $440 for two nights. We had no choice because the Inn and other properties had to be totally booked for a wedding, otherwise they charge the bride & groom. It was June and almost no air conditioning in the Walnut room, just a whisper out of the vent. They said it was the thermostat. Not... More

I am sorry your experience with us was not up to your expectations. We did have an A/C problem that weekend and it were corrected the following Tuesday by replacing the upstairs cooling unit. Our HVAC man did come during the weekend to get it going the best he could. I'm surprised breakfast was disappointing as we get rave reviews... More
