We stayed for 4 nights in the Cambridge room which is a lovely room with its own entrance and car parking. The inn is lovely full of beautiful furniture and art work etc and some whimsical things as well. If you stay in the main house then breakfast is a communal event in a gorgeous octagonal room which is a...

We read about the INN from a AAA magazine article and along with a AAA 4 diamond rating we booked it. First of all the cancellation policy is very strict. We booked 2 nights in the featured LORD TENNYSON suite. After 24 hours from the reservation date you are billed for 1 night .Then 30 days out you are billed...

Just got home from a three night stay in the Cambridge Room. Lovely, clean and cozy room. Innkeepers and concierge very helpful in suggesting restaurants, waterfalls and towns to explore. The champagne boat tour of the lake was well worth the time and extra few bucks. The only thing that went a little bit sideways on us was fulfilling some...

We stayed in the Emily Bronte suite. The room was very nicely decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast, prepared by Nayeli, was delicious. The grounds are beautiful and the champagne tour of Lake Glenville, with Captain Henry and First Mate Claire was enjoyable and informative. I'd recommend Innisfree as a couples destination wholeheartedly.

My wife and I just returned from a three night stay in the Robert Browning suite in the garden house. *The second we entered our room upon arrival we were overwhelmed by an unbearable "musty' odor that made the room almost impossible to stay in. The odor permeated the air, the carpet , the drapes, the furniture, the linens.. everything....

Very peaceful and beautiful surroundings. We stayed in the Emily Bronte room which had a balcony overlooking the grounds and mountains.The owners - Henry and Clare - are very warm and interesting and made us feel so comfortable. Suman welcomed us along with Clare when we arrived - offering cookies and a beverage. Cashiers is close for shopping and dining....

We had a wonderful 3-day stay here, after 4 days in Asheville. The Innisfree reminded me of B & B's we have visited in England. It is an enclave of beautiful cottages on a gorgeous property overlooking Lake Glenville, "the highest lake east of the Rockies" (3500 ft above sea level). The property is on a hillside, with flower gardens,...

We stayed in the Rudyard Kipling room three nights for a cousins weekend away. The gardens and grounds are so peaceful and inviting. The pond, trees, flowers, and seating arranged throughout the property make you want to stay on site. However, the location is convenient to visit neighboring Cashiers, take a short trip to Highlands, or visit the many nearby...

We stayed in the Lord Tennyson Suite and it was elegant and quiet with a balcony overlooking the trees and gardens near the lake. A two-person tub with a view was also part of this beautiful room. Breakfast was served inside our room each morning and the food was fantastic. The owners Clare and Henry were charming hosts. When we...

Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night at Innisfree before we had to head home, but we were impressed by the beauty of this property and the fabulous rooms. The bathroom had a huge soaking tub with a fireplace that you could see from the bedroom or bathroom. We also had a balcony that looked out on the...
