About

The Hemlock Inn is beautifully situated on the top of a small mountain on the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The emphasis is on quiet and relaxation, whether rocking on the front porch or walking the trails. For the more active there is whitewater rafting on the Nantahala River or hiking in the National Park. You'll appreciate the friendly informality, the clean, attractive rooms, the honest-to-goodness homecooking and farm fresh vegetables served bountifully from Lazy Susan.

A quiet place in the Smokies

4.8 on November 01, 2014

I would highly recommend this inn to anyone who wants to spend some quiet time in the mountains. The staff goes above and beyond to respond to special requests. The family-style meals are delightful and promote friendships among the guests. Most of those who come once come again, and that is surely our intention!


The best accomodations in W NC mountains!

Sure, you can find residential "log" houses with lesser rates, but why cook for your self? Why deal with cleaning? Why deal with cable and TV? You can stay home and do all those. The Hemlock Inn is just as the pictures describe, safe, carefree, and a world away; but, right on the door step of all Smokey Mountains activities. Visit once, and you will be back.


Beautiful stay at The Hemlock

Our stay here was the highlight of our trip! Wonderful hosts, delicious foods, outstanding scenery and to dine family style and meet folks from all over the country was a treat! We will definitely be back!

This was where my wife and I spent our honeymoon forty nine years ago. Would recommend it as very enjoyable place to stay. Food was great. Room was clean and very well kept.


exceptional experience

Hemlock Inn is a real treat. The lounge, dining area and games facilities are exceptional. When we arrived we chilled out on the back porch as the sun went down. The food served family style was so lovely as we were able to meet people from all over the US and it really felt like a family gathering complete with pre dinner blessing. We enjoyed doing a jigsaw which was kind of relaxing except for the fact there were some pieces missing which added to the challenge! Fireplace was lit in the morning which was a lovely place to have coffee before breakfast. All in all a beautiful place would highly recommend it


Just amazing!

We have been coming here for a couple years now. If we are staying in bryson city or somewhere close to bryson city, we always stay at Hemlock Inn. Everything about this place is just amazing!!


Rustic, Warm and Friendly

We enjoyed our two-night stay. The staff are exceptionally warm and friendly. The breakfast and dinner were filling. We enjoyed the prayer before meals, which added to the peaceful atmosphere. We met other guests who return to the Hemlock Inn annually. I got to play a couple games of ping pong.


A wonder in western NC.

We have stayed at the Inn off and on for over forty years. We loved it then and we love it now!


Another wonderful stay

I first went to the Hemlock Inn when I was 12, and it has never failed to delight me ever since. The innkeeper, Mort, told us on our last visit that four generations of some families have been visiting the inn since its inception. If you like outstanding food, friendly and accommodating staff, and a setting with breathtaking views, you will like the Hemlock Inn. No phones and no TVs in the rooms--but there is a cozy TV room in the main lodge area for the die-hard addicts. Besides, there are so many different wonderful activities for the family in the Smoky Mountains you don't need other entertainment. Being at the Hemlock Inn is like stepping back to the way things used to be 50 years ago. If you want a delightful, relaxing vacation, I highly recommend it.


Great Experience

4.4 on August 01, 2014

Stayed in the Red Cottage. This would be a great place for extended family or a reunion. Lots of room for spreading out and still able to enjoy each other's company or play games. Great location. Check in was easy and friendly. Loved the breakfast. Food was great and the company was so much fun. Owner was knowledgeable about the area and had great tips. You are summoned by the bell to your meal and grace is said around the table before eating and that was such a delight! Lots to do onsite. Ping pong, puzzles, reading, hiking, or just relaxing on the deck overlooking the mountain view. We will certainly stay here again. Would absolutely recommend.
