Our room was the 'Hideaway' at Fender's Bend, which was a two minute drive from the main inn. There were three rooms here. Two overlooked a stream. Our room faced the road. Parking for our room and the next door one is a little tight but manageable. The room was sweet and cozy and well stocked with everything: extra blankets,...

The atmosphere is exquisite, the service was friendly, efficient, and perfectly timed, and the food was AMAZING. This was one of the BEST dining experiences I have ever had. If you are anywhere in the area, make it a priority to enjoy a meal here!

Stayed in the Walnut room. $440 for two nights. We had no choice because the Inn and other properties had to be totally booked for a wedding, otherwise they charge the bride & groom. It was June and almost no air conditioning in the Walnut room, just a whisper out of the vent. They said it was the thermostat. Not...

I am sorry your experience with us was not up to your expectations. We did have an A/C problem that weekend and it were corrected the following Tuesday by replacing the upstairs cooling unit. Our HVAC man did come during the weekend to get it going the best he could. I'm surprised breakfast was disappointing as we get rave reviews...

We recently stayed at the octagon house. It's just few minutes away from the inn in the lovely and peaceful setting. The house was clean and most importantly private. It has also a fire pit which was great. We also had breakfasts at the inn and delicious dinner on one of the nights. It was splendid.

We stayed here two nights. One night in main house and one in Lower chalet. Mary upgraded us at no charge to stay in Rose Room as half of the main house was empty on arrival. The Rose room is the room to stay in! It is a large spacious room as well as it has a huge balcony area...

My son just got married at the inn. We had the whole inn and The Garden House reserved. Everything was absolutely beautiful! From the help staff to the wedding planner, the Inn and the House, everything was perfect!! People always talk about destination weddings on the beach, this was absolutely the most beautiful wedding destination one could choose. I was...

My husband and I and our small dog stumbled upon the Mountain Magnolia Inn as were were stopping in Hot Springs on our way home. Tammy was exceptionally helpful and warm and placed us in the Upper Chalet. It was just what we needed, basic inside with comfortable bed and futon. The field and fire pit near the octagon house...

I booked our room online. It gave a price and I booked it. I didn't know they had several properties and I assumed we had a room in the house pictured on the website. That was not the case. Our room was the "lower chalet" and was about two miles away. It was a modern room with a well equipped...

I see you stayed with us last Friday when the Inn was otherwise full and that you booked online. I'm sorry you would have preferred to be in the main inn versus one of several nearby properties we offer. . And while you would have preferred another location, I'm glad to see otherwise you liked the accommodation and enjoyed our...

My husband and I stayed one night during a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. The place couldn't have been better! Breakfast was superb! The grounds beautiful and peaceful... stunning views of the mountains! The staff was so sweet and accommodating. They helped us out big time by letting us check-in early and forwarded a package on down the trail that...

This place is absolutely amazing! Would be a great weekend getaway and place for a wedding. The lodging is comfortable and warm. The showers are less to be desired it was a on and off shower. Not sure why it was like that but it would be good water pressure one min and a slow trickle the next. This was...

I'm sorry about your showier. Occasionally the shower heads get clogged up with minerals and we need to remove, clean and reinstall. That was the cases in the Walnut room. Thanks for the good review and pointing this out so the next guest didn't have the same experience. Pete
