Staff was really nice and hospitable. This family owned motel is a little off grid but is a perfect get away from the city life. Quaint room with comfy bed and a nice tv. It is budget friendly so don't expect to be staying at the ritz. Bare bones amenities but enough for a simple stay.

When the restaurant initially opened by the new owners, we were thrilled as it could be a great cozy riverside tavern in the mountains and was close to our mountain home. We stopped by several times for lunch and dinner and everything we tried was quite good. The owners are very friendly and seem to want to provide a good service. Over time, instead of getting better, it has gotten considerably worse! Most of the items on the menu are gone, the service is not up to par and the food is sometimes horrible. We had a steak the last time we were there and you could barely cut it with the knife. So, we have probably done what many customers have done and just don't patronize the restaurant anymore. There are many better places in Toxaway or Brevard that serve good food at reasonable prices. We hope they can somehow get their act together as we would like to return.

What a dump, NOTHING as advertised!!! Rooms were DIRTY, roof had a tarp over it, garbage all over the back. The pictures are NOT the true look of the place. NO working hot tub, no service. NO ONE on site.

I’ll be honest, this doesn’t offer all the amenities as the Ritz Carlton. But what it does offer is a very clean room, a comfortable bed, a nice hot shower, and remarkable customer service. It appears to be owned by a family who puts their customers needs first and will do whatever is needed to make your visit pleasurable. I highly recommend if you need a good nights sleep without all the amenities that most people never use anyway. It’s a bit off the beaten path but so is Rosman. I didn’t eat in the restaurant so I can’t comment.

We ate there with friends for our first time. We have been hearing mixed reviews and we thought we would try it for ourselves. The ribeye was great. Good cut of quality meat and cooked very well. The salad was also very good. Fresh with good dressing. The side of mushrooms tasted good but was a very small serving. The sides were more for fast food offerings and should include more vegetables. We really want this place to succeed and we hope they will. The steak is worth the trip but the menu and the preparation needs some work. Keep up the effort.

Thanks for the review :) our chef is working to revamp our menu with additional sides. Our stuffed mushrooms usually come 6 to an order unless they are smaller, then we add more- as far as I know, that is the standard portion, but I'm new at this- so im gonna check into this further :) hope to see you again!!! :)
