This is a fantastic property offering a large and well appointed wilderness type resort atop a hill with a beautiful mountain view. The facility is old, but very well maintained and super clean. It's a cozy, cedar panelled environment with big stone fireplaces and warm decor. The service is excellent and it's reasonably priced for a high-end inn. The only... More

Came for the proximity to the park - quieter trails on the NC side. Thankfully we weren't expecting excellent cuisine. Shelf any such thoughts - the complimentary dinner included in your room rate is of a very basic level. It reminded my life of boarding school dinner. However , that said, there are some cafés in the town and they... More

Rustic Charm in a historic lodge usually means older lodging and fewer amenities. But it also offers a step back in time where families can engage and reconnect. My first time staying here, but everyone I spoke with had stayed here before, some for 30 years or more, returning here again and again with kids, parents, or grandparents. As a... More

We wanted to go to Cherokee but was unable to decide on lodging. We found Fryemont inn on line with meals included and 15 min from the casino and shops so we gave it a try. The people there are like family and it is a great place to stay. Front desk made reservations for us on Moonshine Train ...... More

Wonderful food included with room price. Beautiful views from rocking chairs on front porch. Quiet outdoor area connected to bar area. Close to Great Smokey Mountain Railroad and Museum. Carolina Shine ride was also a lot of fun.

My husband and I stayed again at the Fryemont Inn August 1 and 2nd. There are several chain hotels to stay in on our visits to Bryson City, but we honestly do not think anywhere else would give us the "home" feeling that we get when we stay here. Sure as I have read in a previous review, it is... More

We went back to the Fryemont for 6 nights as our base of operations for a week in The Smokies, As I reported in 2011, it was great. We had the windows open the whole time and slept great each night. It was wonderful and relaxing strolling down to the dining room for breakfast and dinner (included in the room).... More

My husband, sister and I traveled to Bryson City, NC recently and stayed 2 nights at the Fryemont Inn We stayed in the original lodge, built in 1923. Initially the room rates may seem a bit higher than staying at a more modern chain hotel. However, this is a bed and breakfast inn. Or more accurately it is a Bed,... More

This wonderful hotel set above the town of Bryson City has great views of the Smokey Mountain National Park from its veranda where you can relax with a coffee or drink at any time of the day. This hotel is an historic inn whose charm and ambience has been preserved - it abounds with stone work and chesnut pannelled rooms... More

Mom and I spent two peaceful days at the Fryemont. The staff was helpful and friendly. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the front porch for hours watching the sunset then lightening bugs. After traveling for several days, we both needed a rest and the Fryemont was perfect for that. Bryson City is a small town full of friendly people.... More
