Loved this little hotel alongside the river, not luxury, not expensive but cosy quiet and clean. Only stayed a couple of nights but wished we'd booked more. almost midway between Bryson and Cherokee there's plenty to do in the way of shopping or eating out ( no restaurant at hotel ) also ideally situated for trips to places like The...

Don't run away too fast! This is an awesome little hotel that provides comfort, and relaxation for a quiet escape. Make sure to request a room with a back porch to enjoy rocking chairs and the river. Rooms were clean and Free Wifi. Best kept secret!! I'd suggest that the facility update the coffee pot and provide better coffee. And... More

Don't be fooled by the prices. Reserve a room and go there! You can stay two nights for the price of other places. Rooms and baths are Clean. Go out the back door and spend time in a rocking chair listening to the river. Turn the TV off! No phones, who needs them? No breakfast, go to the Iron Skillet.... More

I actually live nearby in Cullowhee, but just needed to get away for a night/day while my landlord did some work. Can't believe that in 20 years of visiting this area, I'm just staying here! Beautiful, small room on the river. Very quiet. And the owner is wonderful to talk to and willing to help. Hope to sneak out here... More

We really enjoyed out stay. The rocking chairs out our sliding door, looking at the River, were just so peaceful. The room has been completely remodeled, you could tell. The room was decorated like a cabin, and I like that it is a family run place. We will go back.

Positives: it is a cute place. It is clean and being right on the river was awesome and beautiful. Your right off the road but we heard absolutely no noise. Has flat screen, fridge & coffee maker in room. Small but still plenty of room. Negatives: Shower head leak. No heat in bathroom. Would stay again-definitely

We stayed for one night and the owner was really pleasant to talk to. The location is excellent, right next to the river, we could see it outside our window. The one thing stopping me from giving 5 stars is that the Wi-Fi was extremely slow. I would greatly recommend this hotel.

This is a really refreshing change from all the corporate chains. Family owned and run, it's in a beautiful location. We arrived here quite late in the day after a long drive, including the Cherohala Skyway, and the welcome was friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable, but the best thing about them was the lovely terrace overlooking the river....a real... More

We booked this room because we were riding The Great Smokey Mountain Railway. Check in was quick and efficient. It was very cozy and clean. Has a deck and picnic tables by the river . We had a great experience staying here and will stay again.

really enjoyed this non-corporate hotel on the river. no blow dryers, poor internet, a mix of old and new. i loved every bit of it. good location for wandering to and fro, as we were on our motorcycles. no breakfast, but Bryson is nearby and the Iron Skillet is awesome. if you want a old school place with biker friendly...
