I was visiting friends in Bryson City and suggested that we go to the Fryemont Inn to have a drink for old times sake. I had lived in Bryson City several years ago and the Fryemont was a place I frequented. We both ordered Old Fashions. After the first sip I told my friend that I might ask for another shot of Makers Mark because my drink was lacking liquor, but I didn’t. When I went to check out the bartender (Sarge) told me the total was $25 plus. I said “so these drinks were $12 each?” He said yes, why? I said “well they could have had a little more bourbon.” Sarge said, “ if you don’t like the drinks here you don’t need to come back.” I told him I might not. On my way out the door I told , Monica, the owner, about our experience. She was very calm in her response. Over all our visit to the Fryemont Inn was VERY disappointing. I missed you “Little George.”

Decided to book a room after the hotel was recommended in a travel guide and Southern Living. We had originally planned to spend Friday night on Asheville and discovered that we could have a room, dinner and breakfast at the Fryemont for less than we would have paid for the room alone in Asheville. Loved the chestnut paneling, windows that slide open, giant fireplaces in the gray room and dining area and rocking chairs on the porch. Outdoor patio was lovely and swimming area looked tranquil, although it was closed in October. Hotel has some quirky features, but they were out mitigated by the overall charm of the hotel. Doors are left open until guests arrive so that everyone can see the rooms, the sink in our room (112) was only 1 foot from one of the beds making it hard to use at night without disrupting the person sleeping in it, the bathroom did not have a light switch—the fixture had to be turned on directly, the floor slopes on one side of the dining room. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Everything we tried for breakfast was delicious, especially pancakes with pecans and blueberries. Pecan crusted trout with lemon cream sauce was delicious and the lamb shank was very tender. Mac and cheese was good. Did not like the vegetables which were frozen, not fresh. Would definitely go back if we return to the area.

Wonderful place to stay . Walking distance to downtown for great food, shopping and breweries. So much to do here like hiking, site seeing, zip lining white water rafting, snow skiing and everyone is so friendly and accommodating. The Grounds at the Inn are Beautiful!

This quaint little inn is tucked into the hillside overlooking Bryson City. We have visited several times. Breakfast and dinner are included in the room rate. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. We stayed in the balcony suites which have a TV, fireplace, king beds, kitchenette, living area, bath and a lovely balcony with two rocking chairs. In the evening we could hear caroling from the town. We also encountered roaches on our past two visits but with the wood in the building and surrounding trees that comes with the territory. We will return.

My first visit to the Fryemont Inn in Bryson City and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff was wonderful and the atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. The historic Lodge's history is very interesting and there is evidence of it throughout the hallways. The price was reasonable considering breakfast and dinner is included. I can't say enough about the meals....3 dinners and 2 breakfasts and everything was amazing! While waiting for the dinner reservation, the bar is the perfect place to relax with a French Broad Martini made by Amanda, the best bartender I've met in a long time. I will definitely stay here anytime I am headed to Bryson City.

We stayed here recently for 2 nights. We have stayed here in the past and enjoyed our visits. This particular visit was a bit different. The dining room staff was very friendly and service was good. Our food here was also delicious. The rooms do not have TVs so it was nice to sit around the fire and talk to other guests, work on puzzles, read and just relax. However, when we went to the room, we turned on the light in the bathroom and saw a roach. We informed the front desk of this. Later that evening, we turned down the sheets to go to bed and there was another roach in the bed. The next morning, we informed the front desk of this as well. We were told that due to the cold weather, they (the roaches) were coming inside to find warmer temperatures. The morning of our checkout, we turned on the light in the bathroom and found yet another roach on the floor. When we checked out, we informed the front desk again of our "findings". We understand that these are hard to control and suggested they find another exterminator. We had planned on bringing friends with us on our next trip to Bryson City, but now we can no longer recommend staying at the Inn. This is unfortunate as we do enjoy the "peacefulness", but will look for other accommodations in the future.

This is nearly a hundred year old inn, the innkeepers have kept with the heritage. They have not changed the wood floors or beams or the massive fireplaces that can burn 8 ft logs. The rooms and the inn in general have been kept in a period correct motif. Very charming. You get breakfast and dinner included in the price of the room and it is true sit down country cooking, and it's delicious, not a Holiday inn Express buffet. If you were looking for a place to relax in the mountains that has a laid-back atmosphere with delicious food and great people, then look no further.

For more than 20 years now the Browns have welcomed us to their peaceful inn. It's always a time of restoration and comfort. Great food, quiet atmosphere, beautiful scenery and folks that just care and love. It's always like a homecoming. Thank y'all...and thank you to the "historic lady" that has stood watch over all who enter for the past (almost 100) years.
