The suites at the Calhoun House are unusual in that each one has a different theme. Our suite had a movie theme with vintage movie posters, pictures and a display of camera and projector equipment. This may sound strange but was actually very interesting. The suite was extremely clean, had a complete kitchen with a refrigerator stocked with breakfast bagels,... More

We really enjoyed our stay. They are walking distance from the train station and downtown area of Bryson City. Ed is friendly and knowledge. He had many suggestions of things for us to do. We decided to follow the Road to Nowhere to check out the tunnel through the mountain. We were not disappointed, it was an easy and fun... More

My husband and I spent a couple of days at Bryson City in order to take the Polar Express train ride with our kids and grandchildren. We had a wonderful time in this little piece of heaven. Our suite was spotless and our fridge was filled with all types of complementary goodies. The Inn's host and hostess were extremely pleasant... More

My husband and I spent a few days at the Calhoun House Inn & Suites during Thanksgiving weekend. I cannot say enough about our experience, except that this Inn is amazing.

We have completely renovated each room in this house (every floor, wall and ceiling has been replaced or resurfaced) during the 10 years we have owned this historic building. We wanted to create a lodging experience that was more than your typical B&B by offering our guests their own private space that felt "Just Like Home"; including private entrances, living... More

This place is fabulous. We stayed in the Movie Theater Suite and it is everything you could want. The décor was great. Everything is comfortable and it's just like home. They think of everything you might need and have it at your fingertips. Beautiful view, quiet - it was great. I will come back again.

What a great place to spend my wife's birthday. It had a full kitchen, not that my wife was going to cook on her birthday. The rooms were all great, the view of the town was also great. Ed the owner was very good. We only had one day, but will be back to look the town over. BUD CARTER

We stayed at the Calhoun House for two nights in late October 2015. Ed & Shirley are gracious hosts with lots to share about the area. The room was perfect. Beautifully restored and maintained.

We rented the Toy Box Suite for 2 days and really enjoyed the stay. The suite is similar to a time-share condominium with a full kitchen and appliances.
