My family stayed here when we took our oldest to look at Western Carolina. . It was so relaxing and peaceful. We sat on the deck overlooking the river with other guests. At night we sat around the campfire talking with other guests. Terri and TJ are very friendly. We walked to downtown Dillsboro had some dinner.

The only thing wrong with this trip was that it was too short. Three nights living and sleeping on the Tuckaseegee River made us want to stay indefinitely, living in the midst of nature. Watching the changes in the river, the geese and other birds, the ground hog under the bridge, it all was idyllic. The accommodations were quite nice... More

A hidden gem. Absolutely delightful. Stayed here rather than Harrah's which is 20" away. Good choice. View of river is lovely. Room was charming. Owners were so friendly. Only 7 suites so it's not crowded. Make sure to hang out by the camp fire in the evening to meet the other guests.

My husband & I recently stumbled upon what we consider the most relaxing haven we have found in our 29 years of travel. The sounds of the water rushing over the river rocks, the songs of the birds, and the instrumental music playing on one of the patios gives the sense you've been swept away from the hustle & bustle...

Being from Thailand and having the good fortune to spend fathers day with my sons at the Dillsboro Inn, I have the pleasure to say our experience exceeded expectations. TJ and Terry made our experience a memorable one that I will cherish forever. The kindness, grace and good karma exuding from this property is good for the soul. I highly... More

My father, who now lives in Thailand, came to visit the states after years away. We had the pleasure of spending Father's Day with TJ and Terry at their wonderful inn. They were amazing hosts who went above and beyond in every way. You really can't put a price on the service they deliver. The location immediately put us at... More

Yes the furniture is old, but the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Our AC worked fine, never got cool enough to check out the heat. Breakfast is not served, but muffins are left in the room as well as other treats and we were given some delicious ginger scones each morning. The innkeepers were very nice and... More

The Dillsboro Inn's proximity to the river is perfect. We loved the sound of rushing water just outside our room. There are plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy nature. The outside is great but the inside needs lots of work. The furniture is beyond rustic...it is just old! Our room was crowded with items that should have been... More

We have 3 of 2 room Suites We refer to as Family Suites... Which are designed affordable Cabin Suites for families, whom we love to host. It is entirely possible that a couple might not appreciate those rooms if they would end up with one of these less fancier Suites. PLEASE Look at the pictures of our Suites. We have... More

Spent a lovely couple of days here and location and hosts were very accommodating. Breakfast was not quite what we were expecting for the price paid and we had to go out and buy breakfast both days. Lovely location

Wanted to surprised my husband on our 8th Wedding Anniversary, was told to visit Western Carolina area and found this beautiful relaxing retreat right on the river. Called and spoke with owner TJ and he had a room "just for us". Arrived late Friday night around 9:00 pm and saw a couple sitting out at the camp fire with relaxing... More
