    At the end of the 19th century two outdoorsmen opened a boarding house in Balsam – then the highest railway destination in the east. Joseph Kenney and Walter Christy led hunting and fishing trips into the rugged surrounding mountains, and built a name for themselves by serving wonderful food.
    In 1908 they completed construction of a 100-room hotel. With its long, wide porches, spectacular views and fresh, abundant cuisine, the inn soon came to be known as the “Grand Old Lady of Balsam”.
    The Balsam Mountain Inn honors that tradition by offering hearty, carefully prepared regional dishes using the freshest possible ingredients. Signature dishes at dinner include fresh mountain trout, catfish, artichoke penne pasta and a variety of beef cuts. Breakfast favorites include baked, caramelized french toast and eggs Elizabethan with chives and cream cheese.
