We were very disappointed! My husband stayed here three years ago and loved it. He wanted us to get away for the weekend and stay here since I haven't been there. When we arrived and got checked in, I fell in love with the room, from the ball/claw foot tub to the antique queen sized bed. We went out for... More

My husband and I enjoyed a great family style meal here. He ordered trout and I ordered chicken and dumplings, which were both yummy. Sides included stewed potatoes, slaw, biscuits, pickled beets, cooked apples, and green beans. All of these were scrumptious, except the potatoes. They were dry. The biscuits were the best I have had! They had amazing sounding... More

If you are looking for room service, a pool, a gym, or a business center this is not your hotel. If you are looking to relax and enjoy the mountains of Western NC this is where you want to be. This hotel was built in 1884 and the only thing they have changed is they added electricity and bathrooms to... More

This is a very old inn and is in the process of being upgraded. The staff was very friendly and the free breakfast was good. We had one small problem but the owner was very gracious and made it right. We will go back and stay again.

Enjoyed one night at the Jarrett House for the annual WNC Pottery festival. The staff was very friendly, and our room was clean and comfortable. One thing that some might not like was the absence of a TV in the room and although free wifi was advertised, we did not get a signal. Neither of these was an issue for... More

We seldom complain and can usually find the upside to most situations... but this property was very disappointing. It is definitely old to say the least and did not live up to our expectations based on the website and marketing. (Kudos to whoever made the website. It makes the Inn look very inviting!) The staff was friendly and pleasant, but... More

I have never written a negative review about a hotel before. I feel bad to have to do this, but our stay was disappointing. Five years ago, my husband and I stayed at The Jarrett House, and it was adorable. This time, we brought our two little boys with us, and it was a very different experience. Our room was... More

Stayed here one night while visiting family. It's an old inn and it definitely shows its age. The room we stayed in was very roomy and had two full beds and a bathroom with cast iron claw bathtub. The plumbing was slow to drain, but I am sure it's due to age. The room did not have a tv, but... More

Loved this place 6 years ago but the food has changed. Had the chicken dinner and the breast had a large cut in it. The chef must had to see if the chicken was cooked and mine was the ginny pig! The piece was as dry as one can make it. No I did not ask the waitress for another... More

Thanks for the charming review. I sure am glad you like the Jarrett House. You are right you should have asked the waitress to bring you another piece of chicken or a different entree. We would have been glad to do so. At least we did make sure your chicken was cooked LOL. Seriously, anytime you have an issue its... More

We ate lunch here on vacation in Dillsboro. The general aura of the house was very country and cozy feeling. The staff was friendly and the house was clean. The tiny biscuits that came before our entrees were delicious! I ordered the fried chicken with buttered potatoes and honey glazed carrots. I found everything delicious, but the portion was huge!...

“ask for a first floor room if stairs are an issue. Did not see any elevator, due to historic building.”

“It would be a good idea to ask for a view of the road, because the other views are of outdoor walls, the parking lot, etc.”

“Just know there is no tv in the room and air condition is by window units. Floors are wood and creaky-not suitable for small children. Very clean.”
