We were very pleased with the the Esmeralda Inn. We had travel difficulties and the Inn had experienced some power outages so the staff were kind enough to change our stay for us. They were very helpful and friendly. The Inn is as described; rustic but very well furnished and the accomodations are all high quality. There is a game rool and a guest kitchen--all the extras make you feel right at home. The restaurant was not open during our stay (sun and Monday nights) but the staff recommended a nice restaurant in town. The breakfast was included and is NOT your typical buffet-- we enjoyed baked oatmeal, bacone and and egg and cream cheese bake. The outdoor hot tub is huge and very enjoyable as you can hear the mountain stream as well. We woul recommend the inn to anyone!

Charm and classic. Gorgeous setting right on Lake Lure. Big front porch, large inviting lobby. Beautiful dining room with nice menu variety. Hot continental breakfast included. The 1927 Lake Lure Inn & Spa had the feel of a comfy bed and breakfast. Very reasonably priced.

We were skeptical at 1st about staying in a condo and not a full service hotel . However , what a wonderful and pleasant surprise ! It was beautiful and very well appointed .
My only concern was there was what seemed like college kids partying into the late night in the adjoining cindo .
I would still consider a return visit and stay longer . It's a lovely place within walking distance to Biltmore village .
