The place is right next to the river which was the best part. Staff was really nice. Very clean. But after spending $120 a night just to get a bad night sleep wasn't what I was expecting. The walls are thin, so if you get someone who has to watch their TV in the night, you will hear it (even...

This is a fantastic place to stay -- staff is awesome -- rooms clean and restaurant has super food. Don't miss this place! I understand the fall is a very busy time but we went in August and got in no problem. Ride the Creeper Trail both ways!

The Inn is the perfect place to get away from it all and relax. I had a smaller room on this trip, but it was still very nice and cozy, with everything you need while traveling. I was with a group on business and everyone loved their rooms. Some of the rooms overlook the waterfall, and the sound is amazing....

The view from the parking lot is not particularly impressive, but the view from a third floor room facing the falls with a balcony is quite beautiful and relaxing. If you visit, make sure you request one of those rooms. Room was nicely furnished with a lovely bed and adequate bathroom. The AC unit was a bit noisy but didn't...

The inn is very quaint and cute. The old mill has been turned into a Inn. When we checked in the staff were very friendly and helpful, even walking us up to show us how to get to our room. The room was nice, big old bed, great view of falls, private balcony which was very nice. Bath room is...

My husband and I were driving from Myrtle Beach to Knoxville when our son (from Knoxville) told us about the Virginia Creeper trail and a place called Damascus Virginia; so we figured we would stop and ride the trail with our bicycles! So, before we left Myrtle Beach, I thought we should look for a place to stay. I saw...

Our family of four stayed here over Memorial Day. We were very pleased with our room and the hotel's restaurant. Our room was on the second floor- there is an elevator. It overlooked the river and was very large. Our two teenaged sons slept in the pull-out sofa and my husband and I had a very comfortable bed. The ceilings...

On our way driving on I-81 from the Far North down home to Dixie, we took the short, scenic detour into Damascus to meet some friends, to do a little hiking (including on the Appalachian Trail, which passes right through town), to ride bikes on the Virginia Creeper Trail, which also passes through town (see my review), and to enjoy...

My husband and I spent 2 nights here. Our room was small but comfortable. We did not have a water view but there are plenty of chairs on the decks to use for relaxing. The setting is very peaceful and the service was excellent. The continental breakfast is one step above what you get at one of the big chains...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a room over-looking the falls. It was really wonderful and complimented the rustic AT feel of the place. The room was very clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. The dinner served was delicious and service was friendly and attentive. The breakfast was good. It is a basic continental breakfast but who cares. It...
