As fall passes and we slip into winter, now is a good time to begin thinking about a winter getaway…the chance to safely escape from the stresses and pressures the world is facing today. Here at Engadine, we have available lodging options that allow guests to enjoy the mountains of Western North Carolina while remaining socially distant.
Our six mountain cabins are individual units, each outfitted to provide you with everything you would need or want for a winter getaway…separate parking, private entrances, fully equipped kitchens, a spacious covered porch or deck, a complete complement of luxury linens and bath amenities and a cozy fireplace or fire stove.
To insure guest safety, Engadine is employing a number of safety protocols including, self check-in and check-out, limiting other staff interaction with guests, temporarily curtailing breakfast service in the Inn (we do, however, offer an optional continental breakfast for an additional cost, delivered to your cabin before check-in), restricting (when possible) reservations to leave a 24-hour waiting period between guests stays and employing enhanced cleaning and sanitation protocols recommended by the CDC and the American Hotel and Lodging Association.
And in case you’re wondering about what to do in the area during the winter, here’s a quick list of a bunch of popular options…
