We stayed 2 nights in the Historic Calhoun House Hotel. The hotel is lovely inside with antiques, but very clean and comfortable. The owners welcome you with warmth and gentility. The morning light breakfast is served by the owners and includes delicious homemade food. It is in the heart of charming Bryson City, where you can enjoy walking the street... More

Great ambience, great breakfasts, and a wonderful host. I look forward to staying there again. We absolutely loved it. What a treasure. Sit on the porch in a rocking chair and watch the world go by or walk a block and ride the train. Many good restaurants nearby. I deli next door and an ice cream shop on the other... More

We stayed two nights and three days at this beautiful hotel and we loved every minute of it. Luke and Layla were the perfect hosts and made us feel so welcomed. They were so kind to let us check in much earlier than the check-in time and they let us check out 5 hours later than the usual check-out time... More

Sure, it cost a little bit more what it's worth every penny. If you're riding on the Great Smoky Mountains railroad it's within walking distance and you can park your car at the establishment and walk to the train station. Clean comfortable and king size beds. Definitely more bang for the buck.

Nice place to hang your hat for the night while you take in downtown Brewery and Restaurants. Inn keeper Luke is a nice guy who is their to please for sure. "So how are we treating you all so far" is what he will ask. Answer was fantastic. Great morning breakfast also. Cant imagine staying anywhere else when in BC.... More

I have driven through Bryson city before but must have missed the"downtown". The Calhoun is in the center of the restored downtown area and within walking distance of all the restaurants and bars. Very friendly folks that couldn't be more accommodating. Priced right too.

This hotel is in the middle of Bryson City and is centrally located to 5 minute walks to fine restaurants, to the steam engine railroad, and a few miles from the Deep Creek area of the Smoky Mountain National Park. Bryson City is at the head of Fontana Lake and is a few miles from the Nantahala River known for... More

Our experience here was so surprisingly pleasant. We were just driving through and looking for a place to stay, and we decided on the Calhoun because of the owners' warm demeanor and the great location right in the heart of downtown. Our room was small, but cozy and very clean. But the icing on the cake turned out to be... More

We highly recommend staying at the Historic Calhoun Hotel in Bryson City, NC. The staff there is great. They make you feel like you're part of the family. Some how they seem to know you need something before you do, and have it ready for you before you have to ask. The 3 owners, Luke, his wife and his sister... More
