The Undermountain Inn is a rectangular building with an 'L' shaped addition on the west facade. The main block is five bays wide. The roof is gabled with a dentiled cornice. Windows are double-hung sashes with six-over-six lights and plain moldings. The roof has a cross gable ornamented with Palladian window on the main facade. Smaller Palladian windows are also located in the north and south gables. Windows in the gable ends have their original blinds. A wrap-around porch covers the main entrance and a portion of the north facade. It is supported by turned columns and a plain balustrade. [2]
