About

Echo Mountain Inn is a charming country inn located about 3 miles from historic 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. All our rooms have TV, individual heat/air, private baths and wireless internet. Rooms in our 1930's wing even have a real wood burning fireplace. We enjoy serving a hearty and healthy breakfast each morning that caters to most dietary needs. In warm weather, you can enjoy our outdoor pool, shuffleboard court, and gardens. Fall brings spectacular NC foliage and in winter we have cozy fires and comfy places to read a book, play games or just relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Let Echo Mountain Inn serve as your launching base for local shopping, as well as outdoor activities like hiking, biking, rafting and golf or enjoying the waterfalls close by in beautiful western North Carolina. We have a friendly staff to help you find your 'home away from home.'

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

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!

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

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

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


Charming, delightful

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!
