About Ann Harold

Greetings, I purchased The Belle in 2013 and have operated it as a B&B since that time. Actually the first summer Duke University leased the entire house for a group of interns but since the summer of 2014 we have welcomed guests who have enjoyed the house and the Town of Hot Springs. My daughter Rachel is the premier innkeeper and she loves taking care of the house and hosting our visitors. We are originally from Atlanta but have made NC our home now for the last 10 years never looking back. We hope to host you on your visit to Hot Springs!

Ann Harold purchased this bed and breakfast in 2014

Why Ann Harold chose Hot Springs

So many people come to WNC to escape the hustle and bustle of their everyday lives and enjoy the abundant beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Be prepared to have plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities, romantic activities and rest well as you are cradled in these wonderful mountains we call home.

What makes this bed and breakfast unique

I knew I loved this house from the moment I walked through to list it for sale for the owner who inherited it from his Grandparents. After sitting on the market for some time with no takers I decided to purchase this historic Hot Springs beauty and the rest is, as they say, history.

Just what we needed... comfortable, clean, accommodating, friendly. I would recommend this inn to anybody needing a night's accommodation in Hot Springs, NC. We had a room with an attached, private bath, which was perfect!

My husband and I loved the Inn and our lovely host Rachel. This mother-daughter team really do a wonderful job. The house was very clean and though it's not a complete to order breakfast you won't leave without options like coffee (or tea) and something to eat like fruit, yogurt or granola (my husband loved the homemade coffee cake). We would stay again.

We stayed on NYE and absolutely loved our time here- the B&B was wonderful- walking distance to the AT, hot springs spa, and the few little restaurants/bars in town. Hosts were nice and all the little details in the house were charming. Perfect way to start the new year, want to visit again soon!
