Went to this place in January on a 2 night Groupon. What a mistake! The ceiling of the room had cracks in it, the bathroom sink was ancient with rust stains, there were stains on the towels and the bathroom was barely big enough to turn around in. I guess this is someone's idea of "rustic". The first morning they served pancakes which were ice cold. But the worst moment was the second night/morning. During the night, the heat to the entire building went off. The over night temperature was 22 degrees. There also was no hot water in the shower or sink. Upon check out the manager said the natural gas tank which supplies the boiler was empty. He blamed the problem on the gas delivery guy who forgot to deliver the gas. That may be true, but it is still the Inn's responsibility to monitor the gas supply in their tanks. I requested a partial refund for the second night and the manager refused. He had an attitude like "it was my problem". With the Groupon, this place was about $85 per night. The normal rate is an unbelievable $140 per night. Even with no problems, this place is way over priced and way over rated. If you want to stay in this area go to Asheville (30 miles away) where $140 will get you a really nice room including heat and hot water!

We're glad that this reviewer chose to visit Balsam, and we’re sorry that his 2012 stay didn’t meet expectations. His criticisms are to an extent very valid: the heat and hot water in the inn did fail in the wee hours one night – the night of his stay – although they were restored quickly. And clearly his concerns weren’t as well-addressed by our desk staff as he would've liked, and as we would’ve hoped. We get good marks for guest relations, which are the foundation of what we do. His further complaints are another matter, though. We work hard to help potential guests understand our inn before they arrive, because we understand it isn’t for everyone. The inn was opened in 1908 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It’s made entirely of wood, and the ceiling and wall “cracks” are inherent to the tongue-in-groove woodwork throughout. Some of our porcelain fixtures are certainly stained, because they’ve been in use for over a century, and some of the bathrooms are small because there were no private baths before – we added them throughout during restoration, tucking them where we could. There were a good number of other couples at the inn on the same night, and many have been back since. We hope this reviewer has a chance to come back as well!

We had We had a nice stay at Balsam Mountain Inn to celebrate our anniversary. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is really good, the scenery is outstanding, the front porch is very inviting, the room was comfortable and charming. Loved the clawfoot tub. Only one problem, in my opinion..No Air Conditioning!!! Sweltering! If I came back in spring or fall I would not have one single complaint. I really don't think adding A/C would spoil the atmosphere a bit. The only reason I rated the room below average is because of the lack on A/C.

Balsam Mountain Inn is a jewel hidden away in a richly historic Western North Carolina Community near Waynesville, North Carolina. My wife and I stayed there during the second week of December to celebrate our anniversary and we experienced the charm and excellent hospitality of a quality B & B! The Inn’s rustic charm is accented by its period design and the rooms are appointed to enhance that experience. Despite the single digit outside temperature, the staff that Inn Keepers Kim & Sharon have acquired made us feel warm and attended to throughout our stay. Balsam Mountain Inn is an adventure in waiting. Rev. Paul J. Brown

I highly recommend this place if you are in need of relaxation. No TV, radio or clock in the rooms. Absolutely wonderful library, sitting areas, front porch with rockers to enjoy the gorgeous mountain views. They sell local artist items which are very reasonably priced. And the food served at the restaurant is outstanding. I will be back!

This was our first stay at the Balsam Mountain Inn. We came to the Inn because of the Songwriters-in-the Round concert. This was a wonderful Valentine’s weekend event! The evening included a delicious dinner buffet followed by almost 2 hours of acoustic performances by 3 incredible Nashville musicians!! For about $50/person for the concert and buffet it was an evening to remember!! The Inn is definitely a unique lodging experience, with turn of the century atmosphere and furnishings. We enjoyed our room but the bathroom was very small. Since this is a 100+year old hotel, the walls are very thin, which does not lend itself to sound proof rooms. But we loved the old world feel, no TV’s and solitude of this location. We came on a snowy weekend and the innkeeper was VERY helpful when our car became stuck in the snow. The restaurant food was very good (A-) and we would enjoy dining here again.
