Wonderful place for a family. Home-made and good quality breakfast and dinner included. I visited with two young kids, 4 and 6 year old, and the staff were truly nice with them. In the lobby you can find tons of board games and some toys for small children, there is also a pool and a lot of space for the... More

I made reservations in advance for the stone cottage but discovered it only had a large shower for a bath. Thanks to Sandra, we got a balcony suite in number six and it was perfect (we had stayed there before) and I could park within six feet of the door. The restaurant was great as usual and I looked forward... More

We were looking forward to a nice place to stay, however were sadly let down. First, I'll start with dinner. It was nice that they did not charge us for it, but the food was not that great for the expensive price! It's very pricey here, for just okay food. Next, our cottage was not equipped for our family. It... More

Met some friendly folks while lounging on porch, they told us all the fun hikes like Deep Creek and Road to Nowhere. Besides great food, comfy rooms and excellent location, the atmosphere of community and friendliness is something you can't buy. As we celebrated our 25th anniversary a young couple celebrated their first... you can imagine the warm feelings that... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending three nights at the Fryemont Inn recently and we will surely go back again. This is a beautiful and rustic family oriented lodge that was built in 1923. The nightly charge includes breakfast and supper that are so good-the desserts are out of this world! You don't just get "what they... More

The Fryemont Inn is a unique, old-fashioned timepiece, and we really enjoyed the comforts of our bedroom and the lounge, complete with open fire, lovely fabrics, and board games. However, we would say that the hospitality at reception and subsequent demeanor of some staff members was impolite. We had a long drive to reach the Inn and instead of receiving... More

Very comfortable beds, scenic views, great place to relax and to disconnect, excellent food in the beautiful dinning room. The food is included, breakfast and supper, three courses. So pace yourself and walk a lot or you will carry home extra pounds. Close to the Smokies and Blue Ridge Parkway.

We recently stayed overnight with our 18 month old son and didn't know what to expect. We were treated to warm, welcoming hospitality, in a beautiful old building with a restaurant serving delicious hearty food. Our room was lovingly furnished with a nice view of the town below. Can not fault the service or quality of this establishment. Would recommend... More

We have stayed at this cozy, relaxing inn many times, but it was our first Spring visit. It was a perfect retreat! Our room was fantastic with a view of the blooming dogwoods. Since it was a bit chilly outside, the fires from the gorgeous mountain stone fireplaces, warmed us in the wonderful common space and the dining room. The... More

A number of years ago, my wife and I planned a family reunion in the Bryson City area. We did not stay at the Fryemont Inn, but had a great meal in the restaurant. The food was great, and the service was excellent. My other four brothers and their wives, paid for our meal due to our hard work for... More
