COVID 19 update and changes:

So great to be reopen! Our shops are open and our restaurants will switch from take out only to full service Memorial Day weekend. Many of our parks, trails and waterfalls are once again open for your enjoyment.

Thankfully, Laurelwood Inn has already been following strict cleaning guidelines but we are raising that bar even  higher!  Extra disinfection on the most frequently touched guest room areas which include: switches, door handles, TV and fan remotes, all counter tops, phones, alarm clocks plus many more!

We have also removed all magazines, pens, pencils, paper, coat hangers and extra pillows and blankets.  Of course these sterilized items will be available upon request!

Hand sanitizer is available for your use in common areas such as the lobby.

Rest assured that we are following all CDC guidelines to ensure your safety!

We have also implemented a self-check in procedure.  On the day of arrival your credit card will be charged for your stay.  You will receive instructions on your room location and how to enter the room.  

Our sanitized outside phone is always available for you to call us if any questions or needs arise during your stay!

We know you will enjoy these changes as we put our guests and employees health at the top of our priority list!

We look forward to your stay in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina.
