Travel + Leisure, 2006

"Sip wine and watch the sun set behind the Blue Ridge Mountains from a rocker on the porch of this fieldstone and stucco hotel, three hours from Charlotte. Gracious staff combines Southern hospitality with fine service. Floral rooms recall English and French manors. The main dining room serves regional cuisine around a fireplace; try the perfectly cooked trout."
Condé Nast Traveler, 2006
