“Wonderful rustic lodge”
Great wooded setting within the town of Waynesville NC. The knotty pine paneled cottage/room was very clean and well prepared. Plenty of windows with screens that allowed cool air to flow through the room. It also had a gas log fireplace for chili evenings in the fall. The Inn/restaurant's food was impressive. We enjoyed the full breakfast (included) and the evening meal choices were incredible! Would recommend to any traveler wanting visit the Waynesville(downtown area has a wondeful shopping experience) Maggie Valley (Wheels Through Time MC Museum-Don't Miss It!) and of course anywhere along the Blue Ridge Parkway. This lodge is conveniently located between the Cherokee and Asheville sections of the Parkway. Perfect for splitting the almost 4 hour drive along the Parkway.
“Great Place for a Getaway!”
We stayed at this lodge August 13, 2011 for one night. After reading some of the negative comments, I was reluctant, but reading the latest reviews which were positive, I decided to take a chance. I was extremely pleased! The room was at the end of the building, clean, with three windows and a King bed, with 2 rocking chairs inside and a ceiling fan blowing. If you like the rustic look, this is the place for you. We had the windows open all night with perfect temperatures and just using the ceiling fan. The bed was comfortable and enjoyed sitting outside our door in the rocking chairs. So quiet and peaceful. It's tucked back from the road, and although there is a sign off the main road, and when you turn on Dolan its just down the street on your left. Has a high post sign in front of the dirt drive and the Inn is tucked back in to the woods so you have to look up for the sign since not hanging car level. We didn't get a chance to eat dinner, however, many cars came in for the restaurant. Our room rate included breakfast, which was very good and everyone there was very friendly...and definitely can't wait to go back again! If you want a fancy place this isn't it..but if you are wanting a laid back place with southern hospitality...this place is ideal!
“Cozy, Rustic Accomodations”
This is a great place if you are looking for a cozy, rustic bed and breakfast. Our room was plain and simple, but clean and comfortable. If you are looking for fancy, this is not it. The restaurant and main structure was built in the 1940's, and retains its original charm. The food was excellent, as well as the service. We enjoyed our stay.
Staff was truly superb and seemed to care about all of us. We were in a large family group, so they had to "tend" to us more at once, but they handled it well and were so very pleasant. The lodge was more rustic than expected, but no phone or computer were kind of nice for relaxing with the family. Food was excellent and everyone worked very hard to make the experience a nice one. We would return.
“The Old Stone Inn Mountain Lodge and Restaurant - a warm and welcoming place to stay”
The Old Stone Inn Lodge and Restaurant is a beautiful comfortable old lodge located (you could say "hidden") in the woods within walking distance of the shops and activities of downtown Waynesville, NC. Imagine - pine-paneled rooms, gas fireplaces, very comfortable beds, a covered balcony with rocking chairs and a woodland view, a full breakfast (included in the room price) from a menu, and a cozy/romantic dining room with exceptionally excellent food and service. Rooms even have TVs although we never had an occasion to turn ours on. This lodge is only a short drive from the east-side entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The helpful staff gladly provided directions to some little-known off-the-beaten-path parts of the National Park where we visited historical homes of early settlers in the area and saw herds of elk while eating a picnic lunch on the edge of an open field. My wife and I would without hesitation recommend "The Old Stone Inn" to everybody and anybody visiting or traveling through this area. It's a wonderful place to stay.
“Old Stone Inn”
I was needing a place to get away from a hectic life. Old Stone Inn was perfect- within a mile of some good restaurants and still 'remote.' It was rustic, yet comfortable and modern. The breakfast was NOT the typical, bland, complimentary breakfast fare. It was a well-cooked, hot meal- served on white tablecloths in front of a fireplace. Reservations had to be made for the evening meal, and people came from all over for that 4 star meal.
“Rustic and loaded with charm - Perfect weekender!”
I can't say enough great things about this awesome discovery that we made by finding this hotel on Expedia! My husband and I needed to get away for a short weekend to celebrate our anniversary and spend some much-needed time without the kids. The Old Stone Inn is a wonderful mix of a bed & breakfast style hotel and an old lodge. It was a great value for the weekend and who knew Waynesville had so much to offer? I had never even heard of the town before this weekend. Cute shops and great restaurants all in the Smokey Mountains. We just loved it! The lodge is definitely rustic, but so incredibly charming. The words quaint and cozy describe it perfectly. The owners really should put new pictures up as I think the current ones don't do the lodge justice. We brought our own coffee maker, plenty of our own ice, and a box fan to drown out any possible noise from other rooms. The fan turned out to be a good idea because the heaters in the rooms are the old-fashioned style that will wake you up when they turn on and off throughout the night. We love vacations with our kids dearly, but it was refreshing to take a weekend for just us in a town that seems to be made for couples. We laughed at the fact that we saw more dogs than kids in the town square shopping area of Waynesville!
“Quiet, peaceful stay”
Room was small but clean. Bathroom extremely small, but plenty of hot water. Breakfast served hot and food was excellant. Staff was superb and very friendly.
“The Old Stone Inn”
We enjoyed our stay there, and our room was quaint and comfortable. The breakfast in the dinning hall was excellent. The overall condition of the Inn needs to be improved, and they have it for sale now. Hopefully a new owner will do renovations.
“Great room and breakfast”
Great breakfast, small bathroom. The room is beautiful and comfortable. But the signal of WIFI is too weak.
