My husband and I visited The Esmeralda for dinner. The meal was outstanding! We both had the crab cake meal. There was no filler in the crab cake - pure delicious lump crab with a few seasonings. It was topped with a fruit salsa. Outstanding!...More

Our third time to stay at The Esmeralda. Always excellent service and the Monday morning breakfast was perfect. Comfortable and well appointed room. The views from the porches and the landscaping are beautiful. The Esmeralda is the main reason we love Chimney Rock.

We were on the far end, on the second floor and we could see the mountains. I'm sure the third floor had even better views. There is an awesome sunrise from the window.
