We checked on line with Trip Advisor for a good restaurant in Chimney Village. Esmeralda came up a one of the top restaurants, so we gave it a shot. We could not have been more happy with our choice. Nice setting, beautiful flowers all around and the service was excellent. We enjoyed Fried Green Tomatoes for an appetizer and two entrees of pork chops and shrimp and grits. Everything was excellent. When the service and the food are both top notch, you can't ask for much more. Not cheap, but worth the price.

We thoroughly enjoyed our three night stay at the Esmeralda Inn. The Inn owner, Kim and all her staff were cordial and attentive to our needs. When I asked about decalf coffee, a fresh pot was delivered to our room. Perfect accompaniment to the fresh cookies they had available, in the lobby area.

We stayed in room #2, overlooking the front of the building. It was delightful to sit on the deck in the morning and listen to the nearby river. Sound of auto traffic was evident, but not overwhelming.

The grounds are LOVELY, great attention is given to the lush greenery, shrubs and blooming plants.

The game room was quiet each time we used it.

The interior is a great blend of rustic and attractive decor. The building has a sturdiness about it, that keeps noise level at a minimum.

We look forward to return visits!

Room Tip: If you want the most privacy, ask for a room on the backside of the building.

Very nice inn with rich history! They celebrated their 195th anniversary this year!
Delicious breakfasts from chef. They have rooms in the inn and also cabins. We stayed in the cabin that is near the river. New facilities, nice furniture and cosy interior.
Very friendly personnel and owners.
We have to return here someday and they give special offer for that.

Stay here you will love it! Staff is inviting and food is amazing. Beds/linens are super comfy and soft.
Plus it is convenient. Right around the corner to shops, to Lake lure and Chimney rock state Park.

I absolutely loved this inn! We visited Chimney Rock back in April and stopped in to look at the inn. I fell in love with this place immediately. My boyfriend surprised me with a stay at the inn for my birthday. I loved everything about our stay at Esmeralda's from the greeting we received when we walked in, to our room 309 (bed was so comfortable! We both slept like babies), to the lovely dinner we had in their restaurant. I will definitely be back!!
