We have been to the Fryemont Inn several times but this year we thought we would take a break form the hustle and bustle of things and decided to spend an intimate family holiday there. We choose the Fryemont Inn because of the location, and the value and not to mention because we have been there before and enjoyed it.... More

The Fryemont is a wonderful place to spend some time in the mountains. We were there to fish the many streams in the area; other guests were there to hike and explore. The huge lobby with its goliath fireplace took you back in time before the smart phones and video games. Lovely! The food in the restaurant was wonderful country... More

We have visited several times over the years and this "special find" is never a disappointment. This rustic old lodge has a homey, warm, relaxing ambiance. The huge stacked stone lobby fireplace is gorgeous and a wonderful spot for R & R. Guests socialize, read or just sit and savor it's warmth and beauty. The main lobby area also has... More

It's rustic, but not primitive. Rooms are comfortable and clean, the staff cannot do enough for you. The price of the room includes dinner and breakfast from an open menu, the food is excellent and all homemade. My wife and I make it a point to come here at least every other year...more often when we can. The Cherokee casino,... More

My husband and I stayed here for our first time over Halloween weekend on a motorcycle trip from Florida. What a hoot! We met people who have been coming here for the Halloween party every year for 35 years. People decorate their doors and there were some great (and outrageous ) costumes. We had a large room on the 2nd... More

My husband and I enjoyed a two-day mini-vacation at the Fryemont Inn in Bryson City at the end of August. Sometimes it’s just great to unplug and have nothing to do and nowhere to go. I absolutely love to stay at older Inns or boutique hotels and the Fryemont is just charming. With the old floorboards in the hallways and... More

Yes, we were enthralled with Punkin the kitty. We also loved the food and our view was phenomenal! The staff and the other guest were all very warm and welcoming. We would recommend this to anyone looking to stay in Bryson!

My husband, daughter, and 2 grandchildren and I stayed at the Fryemont Inn this past weekend. We feel as if we have found our 'home away from home" in the mountains. By the time we left, my grandchildren and the wonderful staff were on a first name basis. Meals were delicious and welcoming. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I wanted a quiet mountain getaway near the Smokies for our belated 40th anniversary. Our 'usual' place near Bryson City was totally booked for the time we could go, but they recommended the Fryemont Inn. It's great too! The outside walls are covered with chestnut tree bark. The old hallways have some 'pitch and roll' due to... More

We were looking for a place to stay close to the Smoky Mountains. The lodge was built in 1920's and was very well maintained. The included breakfast and dinner was a plus on this stay. The food and service was absolutely wonderful. This was truly a way to just sit back and take a vacation.
