The Inn

Echo Mountain Inn was originally built as a home and then converted into a camp called ‘Happiness.’  We cherish this legacy and aim to have our guests experience the best of both during their visit.

Our location is a peaceful and quiet one.   In the warm weather a swim in the pool, a game of shuffleboard or a walk around the Inn to appreciate the gardens and the view are in order.  During the winter, there are indoor pleasures to be enjoyed, like a warm fire or a good book.

Our rooms at the Inn are cozy and comfortable.  Each has a name that expresses its unique character – from Rustic to Royal and Quilt Haven to Magnolia.  They all have private baths and heat/air, TV, wireless internet and maid service.  Most have mountain views and few even have working wood fireplaces.

The first floor of the Inn has an inviting living room with comfy couches, a large fireplace and a shelf full of games for some old fashioned fun.  The parlor houses a shelf full of brochures of area attractions, a pump organ that really works (!) and a place for a cup of tea or coffee and a board game.  The sunporch is bright and cheery with plants and flowers that share the sun and a great view of Hendersonville and the mountains.  Our gift shop is small but inviting.  It’s a great place to find a remembrance of the NC mountains or a treasure made by a local artisan.

The dining room is where breakfast is served, usually from 8:00 to 9:30 am.  Weekdays there is a varied continental breakfast and weekends offer a buffet of Southern favorites like bacon & eggs, sausage & biscuits, etc. The view is fantastic and the service personal.

All this makes the Inn a perfect place for a private getaway or to hold a wedding, party, reunion or retreat.  We have a staff eager to serve and help you however we can.  “Welcome” is what we seek to offer and relaxation and a ‘happy time’ is what we hope that you find.
