Photo Galleries

The following photo galleries show you more of our Inn, its vast amenities and the surrounding landscape and adjacent towns. Enjoy!


Originally built in 1891, and completely renovated in 2005, the Esmeralda Inn is a spectacular property, built using local materials and craftsmen. We are registered with North Carolina Preservation Authority. This gallery contains photos of our inn, rooms and property.


Photos of the many gatherings held at the Esmeralda Inn throughout the year.


Lake Lure, Chimney Rock and Asheville are beautiful areas of North Carolina to visit all year around. This photo gallery shares some of the sights to see.
