Perched at 3,500 feet elevation in Balsam, North Carolina, the Balsam Mountain Inn rests in a gap dividing the Plott Balsam and Richland Balsam mountain ranges. Originally called the Balsam Mountain Springs Hotel, guests of the inn would take day trips to the nearby peaks of the Balsam Gap, which back then was home to the highest passenger rail station in the inn. Built in 1908, the corridors of the inn were created extra-wide to allow in steamer trunks of their summertime guests. This unique and rich history of the Balsam Mountain Inn offers the inn a touch of something special. Plan your next stay here and learn all about this North Carolina destination!


The beautiful back drop of the North Carolina mountains makes for a comfortable and cozy retreat. Located near the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Balsam Mountain Inn offers you the perfect setting for a mountain escape. Breathe in the fresh air, unwind on a rocking chair on the porch, or head into the mountains for a hiking adventure!


Perfect for a romantic trip for two, Balsam Mountain Inn sits in a secluded mountain setting. Escape the noisy confusion of life and focus on just you and your sweetheart while you stay. A comfortable room with stunning views, doesn't hurt either! And, you can indulge in delicious meals at their Main Dining Room together.
