We stayed at the Sourwood Inn on a recent chilly March weekend and had a terrific time. The Inn is tastefully decorated in an Arts & Craft style with great fireplaces, local art, and nice architectural details. There were sweet and savory snacks in the lobby when we arrived, which we sampled with the wine we had brought with us....

I have stayed many times at the Sourwood Inn, and it a very special place. For a wonderful get-away for romance, rest, or simply a great place to explore Asheville, this is the place. The rooms are wonderful--spacious, plenty of antiques and character but with a clean touch, and a gorgeous bath that makes you feel beautiful. The staff is...

The drive in is definitely not for the faint-hearted...or large SUVs! It's one lane in and out and whew...terrible steep down one side with no guardrail. Not a good idea to arrive in the dark, that's for sure! But if you are looking for peace & tranquility a bit off the beaten path, you have found it. Less than 15...

Could not have asked for a better weekend getaway. Comfortable, clean, warm, inviting. Felt at home right away. This is not just because of the facilities - the folks who run it make it so much more special. Just the right amount of privacy. The views from the room - and bathroom - are amazing. Lots of stuff to do...

My wife and I discovered this wonderful 12 room inn about 9 years ago when it was written up in Southern Living. It is located near Asheville, NC just off the Blue Ridge Parkway at about 3300 feet elevation. We have been back every year. Each room is beautifully finished and has a fireplace, with no TV in the room....

Can't say enough good things about this inn and the innkeepers. Just returned from a too-brief stay. December actually a lovely time of year to visit: leaves are off the trees, so we had miles of view from our balcony (and even from the bathtub!). Food (both breakfast and dinner) was fabulous. The inn is extremely well laid out. The...
