Echo Mountain Inn is a charming 1896 Historic inn located about 3 miles from downtown Hendersonville, North Carolina and about 25 miles south of Asheville, NC. The Inn is nestled away on a mountain in Laurel Park, with over 25 individually decorated rooms and a great variety of beds, arrangements, and charm.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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

We have stayed at Echo Mountain Inn a number of times and have found that, no matter the time of year, this Inn is inviting and pleasant. The staff could not be more accommodating. The breakfasts are truly delicious. During our recent stay, we were surprised to see a fresh new look, beautifully refinished natural wood floors, updated furniture, and decorative touches throughout. The surrounding area is filled with wonderful attractions, including waterfalls, hiking trails, restaurants, a play house, and many breathtaking mountain views. We will definitely return!
