My husband and 3 sons (ages 15, 13, and 13) look forward to visiting at the end of December again this year. Our visit last year was a true vacation. No cooking or cleaning to worry about with wonderful hospitality and warm scrumptious meals. My sons were raving about the meals for weeks after our visit. It is truly a...

My family has visited the Hemlock a couple of times...when riding the polar express.. We really wanted to go back this year, but were unable to. This is THE BEST Inn we have ever visited!!!! The owners and staff were excellent. So friendly, and they go out of their way to make you feel like family. The rooms are great..(just...

I first visited the Hemlock Inn with my parents and older brother when I was about 6 or 7 years old, and then again when I was 10. Did not return for many years after that, but always wondered if it was the same wonderful place we remembered. My mother and I finally decided in the early-to-mid-eighties to go find...

Our first visit to Hemlock Inn was many years ago....in fact, our son was in a high chair at the dinner table! He is now 37..when our family thinks of this wonderful place, they remember the friendliness of the folks, the delicious food, and the fresh mountain air. Many games were played at the shuffleboard court as well as the...

I'm not sure my family fits the demographic that the Hemlock mainly appeals to - couples and groups of friends on weekend getaways - but it's the perfect prescription for this hectic family. We have three kids ranging from 11 to 4 and we consciously seek out escapes just like the Hemlock Inn, where the emphasis is on the outdoors,...

Our first visit to the Hemlock Inn was nearly 25 years ago. We were on our way home from a trip to Orlando's Disney. We searched for a stop on the way home to counter balance Disney. What a wonderful first experience. Our children fell in love with the Hemlock and we have gone back over the years. If we...

This property is showing its age, but you can't beat the staff for friendliness and helpfulness. The innkeeper makes one feel welcome; it's almost like being part of a large family. The meals are great. Many of the rooms have screened-in porches. It's a quiet, peaceful place, worth visiting more than once.

I'm 42 years old and first started visiting the Hemlock Inn when I was a kid. My wife and I now take our boys (12 & 5) to the Hemlock and it is such a special place. When I first started going with my parents Mr. and Mrs. Shell ran it. Their daughter and her family now run it. They...

This was our first visit. We stayed for a week for our summer vacation. We travelled with our 11- and 14-year-old who never got bored with the beautiful views, the public spaces with books, dominoes, shuffleboard, ping-pong, and hummingbirds. Not far from downtown Bryson City with quaint shops and good restaurants. We loved the Deep Creek River area, only 5-10...

The Hemlock Inn is not for everyone. If you require a cocktail with your dinner, a pillow top mattress, a TV in your room, a blush bath robe waiting for you or room service, this is not your place. If you are offended that someone wants to ask a blessing before you eat your food, go elsewhere. If you are...
