Love the rocking chairs on the front and back deck. We went to get away with no kids and loved it. Great price and only 4 miles just 2 towns. Owners told us great places to see and a great place to eat called jimmy macs

If you are looking for a nice affordable location you should pick Lloyds on the River Country Inn. Our room was comfortable, clean with reminders from the past. A deck just feet from the mountain stream, grills and picnic tables. Gracious, friendly owners/managers willing to listen and help if asked. Location is half way between Cherokee and Bryson City.

We stayed three nights at Lloyds on the river last week and only regret that we didn't stay a few more days. Any issues were swiftly resolved after speaking to the owners. The location was centrally located to several of the area's attractions. The town itself,Bryson City was charming-lots to see and do - several local places to eat. The... More

Nov 11 had three rooms for family and in-laws. Did not experience mildew and unclean room condition. What a relief. The exterior has an updated look with metal roof and siding. The bed fish quilt was the central point. The Window heat/air warms the room up quickly on cool nights. We loved the porch & rocking chairs allowing us to... More

My husband and I stayed at Lloyds as a recommendation from the other reviews. I found it very pleasant and we want to return with our family. It was a very relaxing experience. It was very quiet and we loved the back porch over looking the river. My husband only regreted not bringing his fishing gear, Since it is private... More

My husband, three kids (teen - young adult) and myself stayed here in early August 2013. It was the most beautiful setting we could have imagined. We didn't want to leave and wish we would have stayed longer. Very simple, clean and charming rooms. We loved the porch alongside the river! The owners were very hospitable and attentive. Close to...

Know what you are checking into. This pleasant, clean, bright inn is a perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of the big world. A stones throw from Cherokee NC, the Great Smokies national park, and the nearby Bryson City Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, you'll find pleasant innkeepers, clean sheets, and comfortable accommodations. Kind of reminds you of when you... More
