The Red Leaf River Inn sits on 5 acres in Waynesville, NC, within an hour of Asheville and Cherokee, NC as well as the Tennessee and South Carolina borders. The grounds include ample parking for guests, an upper lawn with a tree bench for enjoying the view and a large lower lawn accessible by stone stairway. Descending the stairway will also bring you to our half acre pond and one of two streams on the property. Of course, you could also seek out one of several trails that wind their way down the hill and around the property, but only if you can find them.
If hiking in the bushes is not your cup of tea, you can relax on the huge deck that wraps two sides of the house and overlooks the pond and a variety of plants and trees including dogwood, walnut, american chestnut, spruce, poplar, and burning bushes. Our cool mountain breezes keep the deck comfortable nearly all summer.
Inside the Inn, we feature three guestrooms and one suite, all with en suite bathrooms, and a spacious common area with a fireplace. The Inn is family friendly, though only the suite allows more than 2 guests per night. The suite is also pet friendly and the only room accessible without stairs.
The main floor of the Inn commands views over most of the property as the Inn itself is built into the hillside and so the main floor is actually a floor above ground level at the front and sides of the house.
Coffee and tea are available all day as well as bottled water and soda.
