Perfect Getaway!

3.2 on April 25, 2018

My husband and I needed a quiet place for the weekend to hide out and work on a backlog of work paperwork. Echo Mountain Inn couldn't have been more perfect! The room was comfortable, the various porches were charming, with nice views and a good Wifi connection. And the breakfasts were far more food than we needed - but we had to try a little bit of just about everything, it was all so GOOD!!!


Anniversary Weekend

4.6 on April 14, 2018

Lovely room, gorgeous view, great bed, good closet and drawer space, beautiful jacuzzi (although we didn't use it), yummy baked goods at breakfast, large and open breakfast space with great views. Steep steps up to the second floor rooms. Our nights were quite chilly and the old windows were very drafty; however, the heat was more than adequate. Would return.


Great old Inn with a view

Lovely old Inn on a hilltop in Hendersonville. Gave it high marks for tons of charm and a great breakfast and super nice staff. Our favorite this trip.


We loved it here

5 on March 05, 2018

We arrived on Valentine’s Day and found the Inn pamphlet & chocolates in our room with our names on them. Very cozy. Warm & peaceful atmosphere. Breakfast was outstanding. With our original intention of staying one night, it was so nice at the Inn we wound up staying 3. We will be returning.


Excellent Getaway Location

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend and absolutely loved it. The hotel itself was very cozy and had a wonderful atmosphere. Breakfast was delicious as well. We would definitely recommend the Echo Mountain Inn for anyone wanting to stay in this area. Also, the price is very affordable.


Perfect getaway spot

5 on October 23, 2017

We stopped here on our way back home from STL. It seemed to be a reasonable price for the size of the room we requested. It exceeded our expectations! This place was gorgeous. We spent a lot of time just hanging out in the house, which was HUGE but so cozy. There are windows everywhere that let in the light and the views from the top of the mountain. There’s a double-sided hearth, games and puzzles available, outdoor shuffleboard and pool (during the warm season), and a beautiful sunroom. I loved that it was so quaint that my kids could actually play outside without the worry of traffic or weirdos. Everyone was so nice, all amenities available to help yourself to, and the best part was the BREAKFAST. Three or four different types of breakfast breads made from scratch each morning, cold milk fresh from the creamery, coffee that was actually good, fresh fruit, a little oatmeal and cereal bar, and a hot buffet of various delicious breakfast items. I ate a bit of everything even though I was stuffed to the brim halfway through. I would absolutely stay again. I might even make it my next relaxation destination rather than just a stop-off!


Quaint historic inn

4.8 on September 16, 2017

Ed and his staff made us feel right at home. The inn has a relaxed atmosphere with beautiful mountain views. The breakfast is better than most restaurants with homemade dishes using locally produced ingredients like dairy, meats and coffee. We will be back!


Will return!

4.6 on August 13, 2017

Sweet inn just up the road from Hendersonville. Our regret was that we stayedat Days Inn before we discovered this awesome place with a wonderful staff. Best things were the full breakfast and driving up about 3 miles furher to Jump Off Rock. Beautiful overlook.


A quiet getaway

3.4 on July 21, 2017

We stayed for three nights. The innkeepers were friendly and accommodating. We had a bit of a plumbing issue in our bathroom, but it was corrected immediately. The room we stayed in was dated, but the beds were comfortable. Everything was clean. The breakfasts were excellent - much more than the advertised continental breakfast. With a bit of renovation and upgrading, this B&B could be exceptional. I'd say it was a good value - a little difficult driving around the curvy roads at night, but we managed. All in all, we enjoyed our stay. My husband forgot his pillow when we left and they shipped it to us right away. Would recommend this B&B.


Wonderful and so quaint

4.6 on December 26, 2014

From the view, to the room this place is wonderful. We went at Christmas time, we arrived late and they had our room info in a little custom made envelope waiting for us on the front desk. Our room had a fireplace which was the coolest thing. The Christmas decorations all over the main lodge were beyond amazing. The breakfast left something to be desired but other than that this place was perfect
