Welcome to The Belle

A Historic Bed and Breakfast in the Town of Hot Springs NC

The Belle Of Hot Springs is an Historic Inn located in the small mountain Town of Hot Springs right on the Appalachian Trail. The Belle was built in 1924 as a residential home to house the young women who attended the Dorland-Bell School For Girls which is now the esteemed Warren Wilson College. There are several other Dorland-Bell properties in Hot Springs and they are also part of the history of this quaint mountain town. I feel very fortunate to have such a gem and look forward to sharing my home with you.


The Hummingbird Room has one queen bed and a private bathroom. It's not quite as large as the Honeybee or the Monarch rooms are but is very cozy.


$130 per night.

The delightful Monarch Room has a California King Bed and a spacious sitting area.


$110 per night.

The Honeybee Suite has one twin bed and one queen so if you have a party of three this is the room for you. The Honeybee Suite shares a very large hall bathroom with the Monarch Room.


$110 per night.


Just stayed at the Belle for a weekend getaway with a friend - it was absolutely lovely! We stayed in the Honeybee Suite. Super comfortable bed, and the shared bathroom was spacious and clean. Our host Rachel made sure we felt at home and had a nice breakfast and hot coffee waiting for us both mornings. The back yard has a fire pit, comfortable sitting area, and a garden full of herbs/flowers/vegetables; a perfect place to relax outside in the evening. We needed a quiet retreat in the mountains for a couple days and we definitely got one!"

We stayed here over the Labor day holiday weekend and it was fantastic. The house is very clean and charming place to stay, with many personal touches. The whole experience is relaxing, warm and inviting. We are already planning on coming back in the fall.”

Perfect Stay In Hot Springs!

I love the little town of Hot Springs, but had never stayed there overnight. I came across The Belle of Hot Springs randomly and was so happy I found it! Ann was very nice and hospitable, and you literally walk from the front yard to the town. We enjoyed dinner, the Hot Tub and the next morning after breakfast, a quick trip up to Max Patch before our long drive home to Florida. Stay here!!! We will be back.”
