The room is clean and well-appointed with a king bed, dining table and 2 recliners. The window is large with a view of the river and outdoor seating. Parking is behind the building and there is a paved driveway. Only one driveway in and out with a steep grade-be very careful when exiting onto the highway. Rags are provided for wiping shoes, equipment, etc. in order to maintain the cleanliness of the room. Owned and operated by nice local people who live on the property.

We rented the cottage that was 2 stories, had two bedrooms, 1 bath and a kitchen. It was perfect for what we needed and was right on the water. The guys fished as soon as we got out of the car! Ingles Grocery was across the street and it's VERY convenient to Bryson City and the Nantahala Gorge. It's locally owned by super nice folks who are there of you need them. It's NOT a 5 star hotel, so if you want all the bells and whistles, go elsewhere, but if you want clean, great location, awesome views with all the amenities you need at a great price, stay here! We will be back!

Got a king room. Very clean. Even though it's right off the road, it was very quiet. Right on the river with chairs and grills. Friendly staff. Fridge and microwave in the room. Five minutes to great restaurants in town.

Mountain Get A Way- If you want to spend a night, not a fortune this is the place for you, We got a King Room , River View. Very Clean and the bed was comfortable- The owners were very nice and made you feel at home. This is an older motel, very well kept, nothing fancy, so if you want the Hilton this is not the motel for you. I would recommend and we will return.

Very nice, clean rooms that are close to anything you'd want to do in Bryson City. We spent most of our time in Deep Creek area of the Smokey Mts (8-10 mins away). Owners were very kind and helpful. 100% recommended.
