I booked a rafting trip at the last minute and needed a place to stay for my family-wife and two girls (9 and 11). Luckily I found this online and could not have been more pleased with our accommodations. It was perfect for what we wanted/needed. We even enjoyed a DVD from their movie collection. Also could easily walk to... More

Bryson City is a great place to stay for outdoor activities like whitewater rafting, hiking, biking, kayaking, tubing, fishing and more... centrally located with great downtown shops and restaurants, all walking distance from the Calhoun House Inn & Suites. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. More

We stayed in Bryson City for two nights on our Blue Ridge Parkway Tour. Ed and Shirley made us welcome. Their property is comfortable and homely. Easy walk into town. Great location for Smoky Mountains.

Thank you for your kind words and thank you for pointing out the unique proximity of the house. Not only is the house a short walk to downtown Bryson City, but it also has a beautiful view of the Great Smoky Mountains from the second floor porches that wrap around the whole house. Because the house is cut into the... More

While searching for a place to stay in Bryson City, Calhoun House came up and once I saw the Movie Gallery Suite I was hooked! Of course, I looked at reviews and the location, etc. My cousin and I traveled there to take a ride on the Train to Oz. Calhoun House was just a few minutes walk from the... More

If you are a child or a child at heart, the Wizard of Oz train on the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad is a memorable adventure. I know our Movie Gallery Suite fits right into that whole experience, with our unique decor of old movie posters and original movie star photographs. We understand that travelers have many choices when they book... More

What a wonderful find! We found a home away from home. Ed and Shirley are such warm and friendly folks. They did such a superb job and renovating the suites providing every luxury and convenience. The views are outstanding and location is ideal to walk to downtown Bryson City. Can't wait to return!!!

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We looked at a lot of properties before we selected the Calhoun House to create a dream location for travelers.

We had never stayed in Bryson City and had no idea what to expect of a B&B in the area. To be within walking distance to town was such a bonus. We parked our motorcycles and walked to dinner and shops the two evenings we stayed at the Calhoun House. We chose the Movie Suite. We loved looking at the... More

This is absolutely the best pet-friendly lodging in which we have ever stayed with our two boys. The location allowed us to walk our dogs to town and still experience all the things that makes Bryson City a charming place to visit. You've read all the great comments about the Calhoun House.

This place is great! If you are doing activities in or near Bryson City and need lodging, then save yourself further research, because this is it. A tasteful refurbishment of an older building; the suite had personality rather than stale modern hotel style. Plenty of living space, a full kitchen with breakfast essentials in fridge, TVs, gas fireplace, porch with... More

The room was big and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom could do with a little bit of updating but it was fine. The food was excellent and varied in the morning.

Thank you for the nice review.

Thank you for pointing out that important distinction, as this building was built and named the Calhoun House in 1920 by William Calhoun and his wife NoraLee. It has always carried the Calhoun House name, thru 3 owners (yes, we are only the third owners), for almost 100 years. We offer much more than a traditional Bed & Breakfast in... More
