This place is unique and well-located to both downtown Bryson City and the train as well as to different entrances to the Smokey Mountain park. We stayed in the Movie Gallery suite. Having separate living, bedroom and kitchen was a plus, and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The bathroom could use some shelves or some where... More

be sure to confirm this is ed and Shirley's place! Their vision, hospitality, and attention to detail is unmatched. If I cannot stay at their inn, I will reschedule my trip! Absolutely wonderful experience, great rooms and accommodations walking distance to town yet peaceful evenings.

We really enjoyed our stay at Calhoun House and the Bryson City area overall. Ed & Shirley truly made us feel at home; the movie gallery suite is awesome! Love the front porch with the rockers and view of the mountains. We hope to come back again soon!

We needed a place for 2 nights and this one worked very well. It is less than a 5 minute walk to downtown, it was a 5 minute drive to Deep Creek for rafting, and a 15 minute drive to the NOC (Nantahala Outdoor Center). After a fun day tubing and hiking, we were able to walk downtown and grab... More

My family of 4 made some last minute decisions to head to Bryson City for some white water rafting. My wife contacted Ed (first call) and he was extremely helpful in getting us booked in the Toy Box room, as well as recommending and booking our white water rafting and zip line excursions. The room was very clean and accommodating.... More

I absolutely love staying at Calhoun Inn, we have stayed in the movie room suite, but this time we stayed in the Toy Box suite. Love sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs, the view is so beautiful. I love how they always leave snacks in the kitchen for us, it is fun to me to see what they... More

I agree with another reviewer that the outside could use some dressing up but once you get in your room you will be thrilled with your choice! The room was perfect! All three of them! Decorated so nicely and spotlessly clean! The living room and bedroom each have a tv with DVD played in the bedroom. I especially loved the... More

When first driving up and seeing the outside and area I wondered if I had mad a good decision. The inside rooms are nice so do not judge the book by the cover. We stayed in the Prairie Edge room and it is very nicely decorated. The bathroom is very well done and clean and plenty of room. The bedroom... More

CalhounHouse, Owner at Calhoun House Inn & Suites, responded to this review

Thank you for your input. I apologize that I did not do a better job of communicating the bedding arrangement at our inn. When we did the total renovation in 2007, we chose to make spacious suites that are more like home, where a couple could come to the mountains and spend several days or a week in comfort. We... More

Great Inn! When we arrived the suit was clean and odor free. The suit was also nicely decorated giving it a peaceful feel. The kitchen was stocked with snacks and non alcoholic drinks. Additionally, there were two TV's and a DVD player. The neigborhood is quiet but only a block away from the shopping district and the Great Smokey Mountain... More
