We spent three nights at Calhoon House last week and found this to be one of the best places we have ever been. It has such great character, a rustic setting with all of the amenities that you want to make your visit to Bryson City and the Great Smoky Mountains a memorable trip. We loved the mountain views from the porch, and Bryson City has a great small-town atmosphere and of course, the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. We can't wait to go back.

We had a great stay at the Calhoun inn and suites! The place was adorable and clean! We had a bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen. To our surprise we had milk, bagels, apple fritters, butter, creamer, orange juice, apple juice, cereal, cereal bars, pop corn that the inn keepers left for us to use!!! Ed stop to make sure we didn’t have any problems which we didn’t! It was close to downtown and to the GSMR that we could walk to everything and save gas since it’s so expensive right now! If your looking for a nice clean place to stay the Calhoun Inn and Suites is the place for you!!!

We want every guest at the Calhoun House to feel like they are staying in a suite that feels "Just Like Home". Every one of our suites has a full kitchen, with food to in the fridge because no-one wants to open an empty refrigerator. I am glad you were able to enjoy these treats and enjoyed your stay in Bryson City.

Thanks for the nice review. We call Bryson City the Quiet Side of the Smokies, for guests who want to enjoy the beautiful mountains but don't want the hustle bustle of SevierPigeonBurg. And we are a short walk to everything our nice little downtown has to offer.

All of our suites are very large but the Tree House Suite is the largest of our 5 suites, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a full kitchen and a huge porch overlooking the Great Smoky Mountains. We do whatever we can to make our guests feel like their accommodations are "Just Like Home". I am happy you liked the suite and enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the nice review.

We stayed in the Toy Room and really enjoyed out stay. Wonderfully appointed and just a few blocks away from the main drag. The long porch with rocking chairs resulted in meeting other couples in a relaxed setting. Enjoy.

A lot of guests will make new friends when staying at the Calhoun House. Each suite is private but, with 2500 square feet of covered porches, its not uncommon to meet other great people from all over the US and the world while enjoying the beautiful views of the Great Smoky Mountains from you comfortable rocking chairs on the porch in front of your suite.

The Inn was a perfect place for our Anniversary trip! The owners were so friendly and helpful. A lovely decorated room with an indian theme and very roomy and clean. The bed was so comfortable! The food provided for a continental was great and many goodies included. This was a perfect location for walking into the town of Bryson City. We definitely are looking forward to another visit soon!

Bryson City and the Calhoun House are a great place to celebrate an occasion like an anniversary, birthday or reunion of friends or family, who have the option to enjoy their own private suite at night and gather together during the day. We hope to see you again soon.

Such a lovely property. Truly felt like home. Spacious comfortable well decorated suites. Fully stocked kitchens. Five minute walk to center of town. Gracious wonderful hosts. So nice at the end of the day to relax on the gorgeous porch and bird watch with a lovely view. Could not have asked for a better experience. Recommend 100%

Our original slogan was "Just Like Home" but many guest say it should be "Wish I'd Stayed Longer". Your review says it all, a great place to stay with a short walk into downtown Bryson City and a beautiful view of the Great Smoky Mountains, as well as a nice assortment of beautiful birds to watch from our spacious porches.

My wife and I enjoyed the pleasure of making the Calhoun House our "home away from home" for a week in April, 2022. From making reservations to our actual stay, Ed and Shirley provided us a truly exceptional experience, Their warm hospitality, timely and thorough correspondence truly made our stay effortless and relaxing. Ed provided us with excellent recommendations for both the culinary delights of Bryson City, as well as for some exceptional hikes amongst the natural splendors of the surrounding area, such as "The Road to Nowhere" and the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, a hike surely not to be missed. We highly recommend the Calhoun House as a unique, warm and comfortable place to stay, as the accommodations were truly exceptional.

Visit to North Carolina with friends. Stayed 2 nights at the Tree House Suite. Beautiful comfortable accommodations. Especially liked having 2 bedrooms each with private bath on opposite sides of the main living area. Wrap around deck facing downtown and the mountains with doors leading out from each bedroom as well as the living room. Stocked with everything needed for the stay including ample breakfast items! Has a washer/dryer in the unit so would be very handy if staying longer. Parking right outside the door but walking distance to downtown so no need to even move the car if desired. Quiet, private feel while staying here! Would definitely recommend!

Our Tree House suite, located in the top floor of the original Carriage House, is the most recent addition of our 5 spacious suites. Your review gives a wonderful description of this beautiful suite, decorated with hand made log furniture and Indian art. After managing the main house for a dozen years we made sure this suite had everything our guests are looking for in a visit to Bryson City and the Great Smoky Mountains.

We had Suite #2, the Orient. It was adorable with every amenity we could hope for. The kitchen was stocked with water and breakfast food. Both TV's had a DVD player, and there was a good selection of DVD's available in the room. The best thing was that it was decorated for Christmas. Please see my pictures and you'll know what I mean!

Christmas time as a very big deal in Bryson City. With the Polar Express Train just 2 blocks away, the entire Calhoun House and the entire town are decorated for the season. Children and parents alike are all over town in their Christmas pajamas waiting to meet Santa on the train. It's pretty cool!
