My wife and I spent the night in Cashiers while motorcycle touring Western N. Carolina and E. Tennessee. The little family owned motel was perfect - not the Hilton, but then, we didn't want the Hilton! We love to find these little locally owned, funky places to stay. Much better than the standard "cookie-cutter" rooms in the chain hotels. The standard rooms here are small, but very clean, and have a rustic mountain feel - pine paneling, exposed beams. The grounds are excellent - little gazebos and a nice front porch for relaxing, and a pea-gravel parking lot that actually adds to the feel of the place (no hot asphalt and stripes!). Little bubbling water gardens and streams. And there is a nice walking trail that connects the entire village - very pleasant evening stroll. We highly recommend this place.

We stayed two nights at Laurelwood, July 25 and 26, 201l, and enjoyed our stay immensely. The inn is situated right in the middle of Cashiers; however, the landscaping and water features of the grounds make you feel as though you are off the beaten path. The inn has what I like to refer to as 'character' and is anything but 'cookie cutter'. We stayed in a deluxe room, just under $100 a night, and found it a wonderful value for the area. The managers are nice and accommodating folks and take wonderful care of the property. It appears from what we saw that they are planning to expand the grounds and buildings. We loved the walking trail that took us through town and a beautiful little park nearby. We will definitely return to Laurelwood Mountain Inn.

Staying at Laurelwood Mountain Inn is one of those rare occasions when you feel you have gotten MORE than your money's worth! We had a deluxe king-bed room for under $100 (plus taxes of course). I'm posting photos of the room because they show how awesome it is. The staff was welcoming and efficient. The Inn is right in town and adjacent to the town's walking trail. Cashiers is a convenient location for exploring the area, and it is MUCH more affordable than Highlands or Franklin, which still being an attractive location. We did not have to put down a deposit and rooms may be available at the last minute, so check!

We spent one night in May, 2011, at the inn while we were visiting all the nearby waterfalls. It was a great find on the internet and AAA prior to our vacation across the southeastern states. When we eventually DID end up in the area we were pleasantly surprised that there were rooms available and at the very reasonable price which was advertised. We relaxed in the cozy room and had a very restful, quiet evening. Eric, the onsite manager, was extremely helpful in our waterfall searches and in pointing us to "The Grill" for dinner. We will DEFINITELY stay there again if we are ever in the area in the future. Thanks for the wonderful, quiet, quaint, AFFORDABLE place to stay.

everything was perfect! we loved the suite, the hot tub, the master bedroom, the view, the snow, the town, the surrounding mountains. we did lots of sightseeing. we found waterfalls close by, beautiful lakes, goregous mountainsides, rock walls, antique shops, specialty mountain stores, and a fun coffee shop. what else could we need? the employees were friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. we will definitely be going back to spend more time at Laurelwood Mountain Inn. it was everything we had hoped for - - - and more!

Nice quiet little place in the middle of Cashiers, but you would never know you're so close to the middle of town. Wooded paths lead from the inn to the rest of town so you can explore. The grounds are very attractive with gazebos and ponds. The rooms are not fancy, but basic, although our room did have a refrigerator. The shower was very big and clean. We did not use the air conditioner (I'm think there was one), because the air was so fresh and nice and cool. Staff is extremely friendly. We had fun sitting in the rocking chairs on the front porch and meeting new friends. Great place to use as a base to hike to waterfalls in the area.

Very convenient to all of Cashiers commercial district and next door to great breakfast spot, Buck's. Our suite---two beds and two baths, was nice and clean. Decor is dated.
Cashiers crossroads and traffic light very close, so noisy during the day. Widening road up the way and the dump trucks come through that intersection, very loud. Bring your noise machine. No view.
