What it's like

The Monte Vista Hotel's vintage soul and impeccable craftsmanship are on full display from the moment you step into the lobby. With many historical elements preserved, staying here feels like stepping back into an era when elegance was paramount. This property is the perfect place to stay while you enjoy one of the most picturesque corners of North Carolina.

Independent spirit

Vintage never looked so good.

Small touches

Each of the 45 guestrooms is a unique sanctuary, individually decorated to reflect the hotel's storied past. From the mid-century modern decor in the Lodge rooms to the home-style rustic charm of the 1937 rooms, every space tells a story. Thoughtful, modern amenities like complimentary WiFi blend seamlessly with historical elements such as original hardwood floors and traditional tile work, creating a guest experience that is both authentic and indulgent. And since most guestrooms do not have TVs, you get the chance to unplug and truly enjoy your time away.

Eat and drink

Milton's Cuisine and Cocktails, located within the hotel's lobby, treats guests to seasonal menus featuring regionally inspired gourmet cuisine. Diners can savor a candlelit meal by the main fireplace or sip an artfully crafted cocktail at the intimate bar. With a focus on locally sourced ingredients and culinary creativity, Milton's provides an exceptional dining experience that complements the hotel's historic charm.
