Built in 1923 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Fryemont Inn includes a beautiful poplar bark covered historic lodge with two enormous stone fireplaces, eight luxury fireplace suites and a two bedroom cabin. All rates (except winter rates) include breakfast and dinner. The dining room has been featured in national and regional publications and the menu includes fresh mountain trout, prime rib, and many other delicious entrees served with homemade soup of the day, salad, 3 side dishes and a choice of homemade desserts. Breakfast features eggs cooked to order, pancakes, French toast and country ham. Your favorite cocktails and wines are available in the cozy fireside bar. The swimming pool, open in the summer months, is nestled in a grove of poplar and dogwood trees.
Rooms in the Historic Lodge are like a trip back in time to the 1920s. Large pocket windows slide away to let in the cool mountain breezes. All rooms have private baths, some with old fashioned pedestal tubs. All rates from April to Thanksgiving include breakfast and dinner.

I have visited the Fryemont Inn on several occasions with my husband and each time it has been delightful. The Halloween Party could not be more fun and the area is wonderful in the summer for outdoor activities. I also brought my mom, my sister, my daughter on a visit, as well as, 5 high school classmates. Each time we said we could hardly wait to return. The Brown family is welcoming and makes everyone feel at home. I am counting the days until my next two visits in 2013.

I almost don't want to share how special this inn and staff are to our family. We have stayed here almost every year since 1997. I can't think of a better place to sit, read, go for a hike, watch the kayakers, raft down the river, go for a run early in the am at the Bryson City Cemetary. Months before we start planning what we will have for breakfast and dinner every day of our stay. Monica and George and the wonderful staff could not be more welcoming. If I had enough money, I would just retire there. If you have never visited, please come. You will want to come back. The food alone is a reason to visit, but the Fryemont feeling is what keeps us coming back.

A delicious concoction of mushrooms, Monterey jack cheese, whole grain bread, onions, peppers and celery, this casserole has been served in the Fryemont Inn dining room every Saturday night for decades. The recipe has been published in Bon Appetit, Southern Living and Family Circle magazines as well as numerous national and regional cookbooks.
