We liked this old hotel/B&B. The gentleman running the show, Luke, is very cordial and tremendously knowledgeable about the area's history. (In fact, he is very involved in preserving it.) The rooms are comfortable. The bathrooms are a bit snug. The breakfast was very good. First arriving and seeing the long-ago started, but never finished addition in the back gave...

The Hydes, who made the Historic Calhoun House their project several years back, have the perfect spot to stay in this charming western North Carolina mountain town. It's a quaint bed-and-breakfast with a wide variety of rooms, plenty to look at, a superb breakfast and great hosts. Mr. and Mrs. Hyde and Miz Sue were all wonderful and as helpful...

My husband and I came up to take the GSMR train ride. We decided to stay the night. Luke was very accommodating. This B&B is a great value. Great breakfast! Just what we needed. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Bryson City again.

This charming bed and breakfast dates from the early 20th century. Innkeeper Luke Hyde, who grew up in this far western tip of North Carolina, has spent decades restoring and refurnishing this large inn in the heart of Bryson City (which is really a tiny courthouse village, not a city!) Built as a boarding house, the Calhoun Hotel was for...

I love this place! It is so peaceful and relaxing and the service from the inn keeper was excellent. Breakfast was delicious. The location is perfect for the train ride and it was great being able to walk everywhere. I can't say enough about how much I love it. My 8 yr old said this trip was "the best ever."

Wonderful historic B&B. It's in the perfect location if your in town to ride the train. You can drop your luggage and walk to the depot just minutes away. This is a children friendly B&B, everyone in our group felt comfortable and welcome. They asked in advance if there where any special diets, if the kids would prefer pancakes. The...

My family and I stayed the night and LOVED every moment of it. My children ages 11 and 14 enjoyed it very much! Luke takes the time to sit down and chat and share the history of the Calhoun house and the Calhoun family. The house itself is just charming, and we especially loved sitting on the porch and people...

We stayed here for my birthday a few months ago while in the area to ride the Smoky Mountain railroad. We didn't have anything planned ahead and decided to just play it by ear and see what we could stumble across.
