Our family stayed in one of the cottages 11/18/16 while we visited The Polar Express with our little ones. Our experience was wonderful, dining was great and the staff were amazing. Location was perfect as we could easily walk downtown. Would recommend and stay again, thanks. The Riddles

Stayed the night before a train ride, and although the rooms were clean and spacious, the bed was a disaster, the floors slanted everywhere, the walls were thin and not sound resistant, and the stairs up to the room a trial. I like a rustic location, but this was a bit too much, pretty as the location and the building...

Very interesting place. Cost includes excellent 4 or 5 course Dinner and order off the menu breakfast. Rooms are not extravagant, but the place was built in the 1920s. Strongly recommend for service and character. People we met have been coming there for years. Porch views exceptional, etc.

I've been coming to this inn since 1972, sometimes two or three times a year. That should tell you something. The inn itself is over ninety years old and also has added cottage suites and balcony suites recently. Until this latest trip I have always stayed at the main lodge and enjoyed the fire in the giant fireplace, watching the...

With a nice view of Bryson City and the mountains beyond, this historic inn makes visitors feel right at home. From the blazing fire in the great room's big stone fireplace to the delicious dinners and breakfasts included in the tariff and the simple rooms with quilt covered beds and chestnut wood walls, you will know you are welcomed. I...

My family and I ended up here after a disaster with our reservation at another place. We were riding the train the following morning so needed a room for the night. The atmosphere as you walk in is welcome-home-like with a fireplace, living room set up in the corner, game table, and rocking chair front porch... need I say more?...

This was a surprise trip my wife took me on. Did not have any idea where we were going as she navigated. We were not disappointed. A neat older inn with a lot of history. The room was great and dinner at the inns dining room was very good. Left the windows open and listened to the acorns hitting the...

We stayed in first & second floor rooms during two visits in early September. We were impressed with the historic character of the inn, built in the 1920s, and its setting among trees on a hillside above Bryson City. The original dark chestnut wood remains in the rooms, lobby, halls and dining room and there are great details, like pocket...

This place is a short drive from the Smokey Mountains National Park, but it is on the south (quieter) side of the mountains. It was built in 1923 and has preserved the look and feel. The Fryemont has no in room phones and no in room wifi. The cell phone reception in the mountains was spotty at best. So it...
