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... More

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... More

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. This was the first place I called; We knew we wanted a B&B and this place was just perfect.... More

We recently stayed one night in Bryson City at the Historic Calhoun Hotel on our way to the east coast. Bryson City is a great little town right by Great Smoky Mt.

We stayed at the Historic Calhoun for 2 nights. The location is great for being able to walk to restaurants such as The Cork and Bean & Pasqualino's....which were both highly recommended, and check out the local music at The Nantahala Brewing Company. The Calhoun itself is a delight...would have loved to have met Luke but he was out of... More

Entering the Calhoun, there's a good chance you will receive a warm welcome from Luke Hyde. The Calhoun has the best front porch ~ comfortable chairs, close to restaurants (especially Soda Pop's!). Rooms are comfortable and very, very clean. Breakfast is delicious! Great parking, very convenient location.....

Wanting to stay within walking distance of the town, I chose Calhoun Hotel for its location. The rooms were wonderfully decorated. The bathroom was small but adequate. We were more than impressed with the ongoing restoration but even more so, with its owner Luke. He is a walking history book of the area, we were very fortunate to have time... More
