We had a first great trip to Etowah. We stayed in an upstairs room overlooking the golf course (18th hole). The room was spacious and the bathroom had a separate sink/dressing area as well as a sink, toilet and tub/shower area. The restaurant was closed for the season. We had a pet friendly room. Our dog did find several empty candy wrappers under the bed that must have been left behind by a previous guest. We mentioned this at check out, and the staff was very apologetic. Smoking is apparently allowed on the balconies. This was not an issue for us because there was no one in the rooms near us smoking, but would definitely have been an issue if a smoker had been nearby (I am very allergic to cigarette smoke). I think I would mention should we go back. Overall this was a great place for a short stay - very convenient to Brevard and Hendersonville, pet friendly and affordable. The other guests we met were all family types and very nice. We would definitely go back!
We weren’t here for golf, just to stay for a few days as a mountain getaway. The course looks good, and it is well maintained. The rooms unfortunately are not. The room we had had dripping faucets and a door lock that was coming out of the door. The wi-fi (which Apple immediately notified us) was not only unsecure but also didn’t work in the room. It did work on the deck which had a great view of the golf course that was marred by garbage and litter on the ground immediately off the deck. The beds are comfortable, and we had a good meal in the pub at the clubhouse.
The staff was great but the place is not clean. The room smelled and the A/C leaked out on the patio where the flooring was so frail we were scared to walk on it. We were told we had connecting rooms but we didn’t (unless they consider the connecting patios we couldn’t walk on?). And don’t even think about eating at the restaurant. Their pics are deceiving.
Location is great and very private....no commercial feel. The property was dated but clean and well maintained. There was an ice machine.
Wifi was extremely weak to nonexistent. My cell service was operational for voice and text...and 4G for map and a few apps. But not strong enough to download emails. The wifi was very weak and attempting to connect proved to be a waste of time. Fortunately, it wasn't vital for me.
The porch was a nice feature. Was able to have an evening meal and enjoy the cooler evening air; however, the porches are joined with other rooms and people talking and carrying on overshadowed the beauty.
And of course you heard people walking above your head.
I would definitely return and request a room far away from others, top floor, end unit. (but I don't know if they have balconies or not as I had a bottom floor)
The staff is great, Tim and Katie, surely helped to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. The room was clean and the beds were oh so comfortable. The location is 10 minutes to mills river and 20 minutes to Brevard. Easy access to hiking, fishing, and any outdoor activities.
Because it was off the main road(280), it was peaceful, quiet.
