A historic retreat in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains
The Mast Farm Inn, tucked deep into North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains, is a boutique hotel deeply committed to celebrating its Appalachian roots. Located in Valle Cruces, the Mast Farm Inn is one of the best preserved homesteads in the south, earning a spot on the National Registry of Historic Places and Historic Hotels of America. Dating back to the early 1800's, rooms have been updated with a rustic luxe touch with an eye towards preserving the Inn's Appalachian heritage. Enjoy the Mast Farm's two course country breakfast before setting off on your Blue Ridge adventures but be sure to save room for gourmet five course tasting menu at the Inn's restaurant, Simplicity. Helmed by Chef Andrew Long, Simplicty offers a refined take on Appalachian high country cuisine with a focus on sourcing as locally and organically as possible.
