Old Edwards Inn & Spa

Old World charm set against a breathtaking backdrop make Old Edwards Inn and Spa the jewel of the Western North Carolina mountains. A genuine respect for peace and quiet, ultra-luxurious accommodations, world-class cuisine and an award-winning spa are just a few of the compelling reasons to visit. With so much to offer—from rest and relaxation at the spa to working out at the state-of-the-art fitness center to shopping, hiking, wining and dining—Old Edwards Inn & Spa is the perfect mountain getaway.

The top-notch culinary team of Executive Chef Johannes Klapdohr and Chef Chris Huerta preside over the kitchen at Madison’s, as well as all other dining venues at The Inn. They believe in the partnership between chef and farmer, basing their ever-changing menus around the week’s harvest of farm-fresh produce—mostly from their own organic gardens—and other locally sourced products. The resulting menu is guided heavily by vibrant, fresh flavors of the ingredients, prepared simply and served at precisely their peak. Madison’s also has an impressive wine cellar with a trained sommelier, although most of the wait staff is knowledgeable in choosing and pairing wines, as well. oldedwardsinn.com
