We stayed in first & second floor rooms during two visits in early September. We were impressed with the historic character of the inn, built in the 1920s, and its setting among trees on a hillside above Bryson City. The original dark chestnut wood remains in the rooms, lobby, halls and dining room and there are great details, like pocket... More

This place is a short drive from the Smokey Mountains National Park, but it is on the south (quieter) side of the mountains. It was built in 1923 and has preserved the look and feel. The Fryemont has no in room phones and no in room wifi. The cell phone reception in the mountains was spotty at best. So it... More

This is my second time here. Preserved historic lodge built back in the 20's. I love the simple cozy rooms. Ceiling fan in the rooms. Very welcoming. I love the front porch with rockers and the common room/lobby with the fireplace to just sit and read the paper, play a puzzle, watch TV or use your computer. Hot water and... More

This Inn is what a mountain retreat was meant to be & it has been this since the 1920s. The rooms are naturally dated, but the beds are new and everything is well-kept and clean. The common area and porch are comfortable and a puzzle is on-going. The food was excellent! The staff was friendly and engaging, interested in the... More

Sometimes when you travel you look for something a bit different from the chain hotels. The reviews for this lodging looked interesting and so we made reservations. Check in was easy and we made our dining reservations right away. Our room was large with two beds, two chairs, a dresser and four windows. We knew there was no air conditioning,... More

If you are looking for A/c and the latest amenities this is not for you. But if you are looking for outstanding service and rustic charm at a good value, look no further. Our family of six stayed in the family suite-3 queen beds, 2 bedrooms with a bathroom in between. The rooms were very spacious. The mattresses were new... More

Just arrived today, so glad to be back. Everything is great and we always feel fortunate to be at the Fryemont Inn. We love it here and enjoy spending really great family time together. The Fryemont is truly a home away from home. Thank you Brown Family.

What it doesn't have: air conditioning, a modern feel, etc. What it does have: the feeling of being in a rustic, homey lodge with a grand fireplace and warm company. We've stayed here for 3 years in a row and love being greeted by the friendly staff and Punkin the cat. The rooms are clean and comfortable--we put a fan... More

I love old lodges like this. Nestled in the woods with creaking floors, warmly lit wood walls, and the smell of fireplace smoke and pine. The place has been completely preserved; very little has changed here in the decades since it was built. And I should know: I stayed here when I was 5 and 6 years old!!! If that's... More
