Mountain Magnolia Inn and Retreat 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 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. The dining room, open Friday to Monday for dinner, offers dishes like rack of lamb and local trout ($$$-$$$$).
