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.
