Clean 70's Style Vibe with Creaky Floors
We would definitely visit again if staying in the area. Beautiful view of Grandfather Mountain! Rooms are small but clean and have equipped kitchenette. Glad we were on the top floor as the floors are quite creaky like an old house. Mattress could use replacing as it sinks a bit in the middle. Climbing 4 floors from the pool was a bit of a workout, but pool and hot tub were clean and enjoyable!
