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

If you are looking for a modern upscale hotel, you will probably want to pass up the Fryemont Inn in Bryson City, NC. But, if you want to enjoy a rustic hotel in the Smokie Mountains, this may be the place for you. The Fryemont Inn is nearing 100 years old, and it features amenities of a bygone era. It... More

Loved the feel of this big old wooden hotel. You can feel the history of the place, it is not trying to be retro, it is genuine! Sitting out on the front porch overlooking Bryson City in a rocker supping a cold beer, what could be a better to start to your evening. The hotel has a great and well... More

We chose this hotel because of its location and its restaurant. Both lived up to expectations We had a room at the front which was large and comfortable though there was not aircon. The windows all opened and there were good insect screens. The bathroom was small and the shower was erratic and one morning I had a cold shower!... More

First, I have to say that I didn't read the website carefully. If I had, I would have seen that there is no air conditioning in the rooms in the main building. Completely my fault. Having said that, it could be delightful if the weather cooperates. In 90+ days and 70 nights of summer, it was a pretty miserable sleep.... More

On the hillside overlooking the town with the Smokies in the background is the Inn the like of which you can remember from your childhood. An interesting lobby has a sitting porch with a view and a pleasant, informative Innkeeper. We did not need the benefit of the Volkswagon sized fireplace, though in June it was cool at night which...
