Gray Wolf Mountain Inn

216 Reese Rd. , Brasstown, NC 28902 USA (Show map)


Gray Wolf offers the traveler a quiet, peaceful setting with country and mountain views. A good night's sleep and satisfying breakfast will start you on your day. After a day of adventure, shopping or classes, Gray Wolf is “a nice place to come home to.” In the evening, you can read, listen to music, plan your next day or sit on the big open deck or down by the fire pit and do a little star gazing. We are now re-opening under new management. Our daughter, Lisa, will be operating Gray Wolf. Lisa has a degree in Hospitality and Wedding & Event Planning. She is looking forward to welcoming you to our home. We hope to see some of our past Guests and look forward to meeting new Friends. Gray Wolf is also located just one mile from the John C Campbell Folk School. If you're taking classes there, Gray Wolf is a nice alternative for your lodging.

What a Bed and Breakfast Should Be

5 on March 14, 2017

After reading all the other positive reviews, I should just say "ditto!" But I'll add a few personal expressions of approval of this bed and breakfast. As the title indicates, it is indeed "what a bed and breakfast should me". Obviously, you get a great bed and a great breakfast. But also, from my perspective as a judge who "rides the circuit", many nights require quiet time to prepare for the next day of court, or just to rest from the demands of the job. Outside, the farm setting allows for long, reflective walks in the typical countryside of beautiful Clay County. Take your camera! Inside, the atmosphere is calm. The owners are respectful and sensitive to the need for quiet space, but also very accommodating if you feel like chatting. I recommend this B&B to any other judge or anyone else!

Great Stay!

My husband and I recently stayed here while we were doing a class at the John C Campbell School of Folk Art. We found the Gray Wolf Mountain Inn because we weren't able to budget the onsite rooms since they make you pay per guest (not per room). We are so happy we stayed at the Gray Wolf Mountain Inn! It was clean, private, and we had a wonderful breakfast every morning before class. It was within walking distance of the school and much more convenient than some of the roadside motels some of the fellow students were staying at. We would definitely recommend this place and we will be staying there again the future!

Wonderful Weekend

My husband and I recently stayed at the Gray Wolf Mountain Inn while we were taking classes at the John C Campbell School of Folk Art. It was a wonderful deal and incredibly convenient. We were within walking distance of the school, ate a wonderful breakfast every morning before class, and returned to a clean, private room at the end of the day. Lisa even gave us snacks for our trip home! We will definitely be staying again whenever we take a class again. The deal is much more affordable than the onsite school rooms, and so much closer and nicer than just a roadside motel. We really cannot recommend this B&B enough!

Home Away From Home

I spent a week in Gil and Cindy's wonderful home while taking a class at the John C. Campbell Folk School. If you want a little something different from the normal hotel/motel stay I can highly recommend this wonderful home. They not only welcome you with open arms, they serve the most delicious breakfasts you can imagine.

Great value for the price.

I lodged at The Gray Wolf Inn during a weeks attendance at the nearby (walking distance) folk school. Gil and Cindy made my stay most comfortable. They are great cooks and fine company. I will stay here again as soon as I get the chance. Ask them about the wild deer that joined us for breakfast.

Great place

We had such a pleasant stay. Cindy and Gil were wonderful hosts, taking care of all our needs and requests. The room was nicely furnished and the bed very comfortable. The food and conversation was a wonderful way to start our days. Too bad we were so busy at John C Campbell, as it would have been fun just chill and take advantage of the peaceful surroundings.

We loved the Gray Wolf Inn

5 on August 01, 2013

The Inn was lovely. Our room, the Moose Room was comfortable and cozy. We enjoyed our stay and the great breakfast (especially the stuffed French toast) which Gil created daily. Relaxing with a glass of wine in the evening sitting around the fire pit as an added benefit. Gil made us feel welcome and part of the family. Thanks and we will be back! Gary and Pat

Hidden Gem

4.8 on June 16, 2013

This was our second visit with Cindy and Gil, the wonderful hosts at Gray Wolf Mountain Inn. Our room this year in June was the "Moose Medley" and last year we stayed in the "Den". Of the two rooms the Den is the most private with its own entrance and in room bath. The Moose Medley has its own private detached bath which is not always convenient for those late night visits. Otherwise, everything about this stay was as wonderful as our last visit. Very accomodating hosts, great food, wonderful conversations and they make you feel like family. Looking forward to our return in 2014 to CIndy and Gil's hideaway. Quiet, relaxing, great value and good times!

Our Stay

4.8 on June 05, 2013

We stayed one week while attending classes at the Campbell Folk School. The breakfasts were excellent and our hosts were very pleasant. Our stay was relaxing although our schedule allowed us only a little more time than for just sleeping. The bed was very comfortable, it was very quiet and very clean. We will stay here again and have recommended it to friends who love visiting the Folk School.
