Spent two nights at the Inn for our visit to the Great Smoky Mountains. Inn was 50 years old but very clean. Rooms were large. Large fireplaces and we needed the fires. Staff was friendly. Could not drink water from the sinks because of the old piping. Breakfast and dinner served. Food was plain but plentiful.

Room Tip: Need to define the number of beds

If an R&R getaway to the Great Smokey Mountains is what's desired, then Fryemonte Inn is the perfect place to choose! It's listed on the Register of Historic Places, built in 1923, and because of the listing, major architectural changes are against the rules. No AC, phones, TV in the simply furnished, spotlessly clean rooms in the Inn, and a big country breakfast and dinner (order from a menu) are included in the price for all accommodations during the three seasons of the year. The food is well prepared with a definite Southern spin (country ham, yes, but also several steak and chicken choices. Rainbow trout rules, of course......we're in the Smokies). It's cheerfully served by a loyal staff, several who have worked there many years. It is rustic. New or luxurious furnishings aren't at this hotel. In addition to the inn, other options on property such as cabins and lodges of various sizes and most of those have AC, TV, no phones. The Inn provides huge public rooms with fireplaces, rocking chair porches with amazing mountain views, all which contribute to the sociable ambience of the place. On the downside, I was in the bottom of the 2 level balcony suites, and could hear voices and every step taken by those occupying the top level. Also, I would like being given the option of American vs. European plan for meals, and no credit is extended if one chooses not to have a meal there. Of course, there's no room service. And yes, we will all go back for another visit.........soon!!

Room Tip: There are steps,........not many but enough to concern one who's really handicap challenged.

I just love this place as do several of our good friends. The first time we went we were there for our anniversary weekend. I was completely charmed by everything about it from the "oldness" to Punkin the cat who has to make sure that all rooms are ready for guests. The price includes dinner and breakfast. The food was delicious. Sue and Carol are the two servers who helped make our stay that much more pleasant. I love the fact that there are no TV's or radios in the room and that can make things real interesting.

Room Tip: any room is good

We have been going to Fryemont Inn for Many years. It is celebrating it's 90th anniversary this year. The lodge was built by a lumber baron and still has the rustic atmosphere. The rooms in the lodge are big with one or two queen or king size beds. Many have the big claw foot tubs in the baths.
There is a huge fireplace in the lobby with lots of seating places. Usually a puzzle waiting to be worked on the table. A magnificent long front porch with rockers where you can sit and enjoy the view of the Smoky Mt's.
Included in your price you also receive a wonderful breakfast menu to order from and the dinners are great. Order as much or as little as you wish. The prime rib is the best to be found anywhere.
They are open from late April until Thanksgiving. They also have cabins and balcony suites available on the property.

My wife and I stayed here for one night last week. While this is a nice place to stay, you have to know this is an OLD establishment. Walking down the hallway you see that the lodge rooms are straight out of the 20's. They leave the doors open to unoccupied rooms so you can peek in.

We opted for Suite 2 in an adjacent building. This room offered a loft bed and a small living room. The small couch there is probably the most uncomfortable couch I've ever sat on. There was just no way to get comfortable watching the small tv.

Aside from that, this place is kind of fun. When you're in the dining room, you can picture all the parties and dances I'm sure we're held there long ago. It's straight out of Dirty Dancing. The food they serve there is very good and the servers are friendly and efficient.

Will I go back? Probably, but I'll go for a different room.
