Balsams is best known as a golf resort as it features a 18-hole, Donald Ross designed course that is carved into the side of Mount Keazer. The glorious backdrop offers a sophistication that belies the resort’s otherwise wholesome charms.

At the end of the day the in-house tavern lit up with live music where couples enjoy dancing most evenings.
