Fodor's Review

This restored 1868 inn is about all that remains of the grandeur that was once Hot Springs. On a shady and hidden back road beside the French Broad River, the inn sits on 3 acres among well-tended perennial gardens. Ask for the Walnut Room, with a king bed, fireplace, and balcony overlooking the gardens and the river, or the Buckeye Room with king bed, whirlpool, and balcony. Miss Peggy's Suite is spacious. There are also suites and cabins nearby. The dining room, open Thursday to Monday to guests and the public for dinner, offers dishes like rack of lamb and local trout (entrées are $18–$45).
