Every year we meet our good friends in the N.C. Mountains, and while we stay in Dillsboro, we always eat one meal in Bryson City at the Fryemont Inn. The food is excellent, and reasonably priced when one considers the soup, salad, entree, pass-around sides, and dessert are all included. Such delicacies as three kinds of trout dishes as well...

When we were visiting Smoky Mountain National Park, we asked a ranger where we could stay that would be away from busy "tourist traps," and she recommended the Fryemont Inn in Bryson City. We ended up staying two nights because we fell in love with the place! Each evening we enjoyed a glass of wine on the spacious front porch,...

My wife and I took an anniversary trip through the Smokey Mountains, and stayed an evening at Fryemont Inn. This is truly a unique gem of a location. They have attempted to preserve much of the older style decor and charm of the hotel, and for the most part, it makes for a great experience. With this age, though, comes...

My husband and I have stayed here 4 or 5 times over the last few years and we just love it. The staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to make us feel comfortable and make sure we have everything we need. We travel with our pups and they just love it there! I would definitely recommend...

Our family stayed in one of the cottages 11/18/16 while we visited The Polar Express with our little ones. Our experience was wonderful, dining was great and the staff were amazing. Location was perfect as we could easily walk downtown. Would recommend and stay again, thanks. The Riddles

Stayed the night before a train ride, and although the rooms were clean and spacious, the bed was a disaster, the floors slanted everywhere, the walls were thin and not sound resistant, and the stairs up to the room a trial. I like a rustic location, but this was a bit too much, pretty as the location and the building...

Very interesting place. Cost includes excellent 4 or 5 course Dinner and order off the menu breakfast. Rooms are not extravagant, but the place was built in the 1920s. Strongly recommend for service and character. People we met have been coming there for years. Porch views exceptional, etc.

I've been coming to this inn since 1972, sometimes two or three times a year. That should tell you something. The inn itself is over ninety years old and also has added cottage suites and balcony suites recently. Until this latest trip I have always stayed at the main lodge and enjoyed the fire in the giant fireplace, watching the...

With a nice view of Bryson City and the mountains beyond, this historic inn makes visitors feel right at home. From the blazing fire in the great room's big stone fireplace to the delicious dinners and breakfasts included in the tariff and the simple rooms with quilt covered beds and chestnut wood walls, you will know you are welcomed.
