Asheville NC Area Inns
Mountain Magnolia Inn and Retreat
The Inn is a fully restored 1868 Victorian home with 5 individual guest rooms each with a private bath. Many of the rooms have a gas fireplace, Jacuzzi tub, private balcony or patio. In addition there is Miss Peggy’s suite, which is great for a couple or a family. Just 35 miles North of Asheville and named for the hot mineral springs found here, the Town of Hot Springs is surrounded by mountains & located at the junction of the French Broad River and the Appalachian Trail. For more information, go to Mountain Magnolia Inn and Retreat.
The Iron Horse Station
The Iron Horse Station, across from the original Hot Springs train station, offers four different styles of accommodations , each named after the famous Pullman sleeper cars created by George Pullman in 1862. Each room is attractively decorated and exudes its own old-style charm and comforts, as well as offering an abundance of modern convenience, such as air-conditioning and private baths. The Jacuzzi Pullman rooms are furnished with a king bed and a comfortable sitting area. It offers a spacious adjoining bath with a large jetted tub and a separate shower. For more information, go to The Iron Horse Station.
I would also recommend the 3 hour tour. Trails gave you plenty of different types of terrain but nothing too challenging. My 8 yo daughter had no problem on her own and was matched well with the horse as was I. We unfortunately could not go into the gem mine but there are still plenty of garnet in the tailings around mine. The horses seemed to be well taken care of and they seems to be pretty organized there. - Matthew S.
