We really enjoyed our stay. Beautiful hotel, beautiful setting, good value. Nice pool, breakfast is on the better side of typical. Pay a little extra for a balcony overlooking the river. Worth every penny.

The place to stay when you are in the Dillsboro, Sylva, or Bryson City area. The hotel is right on the Tuckasgee River. If you are lucky and get a riverside room you can open the door or window to your private deck and listen to the river while you sleep. Very clean, spacious and nicely appointed rooms. Would love...

We came here on a whim and are so glad we did! This hotel has fantastic customer service, everything is sparkling clean and you get to sleep to the sound of the river! Definitely upgrade to the balcony with river view!!!!! I stayed in room 315 and it has a garden jacuzzi tub-- definitely a plus on my anniversary!

We thoroughly enjoyed the River View room! What a wonderful getaway! Very private and romantic with the river flowing outside the balcony. The room was spacious and comfortable. Extremely comfortable beds and the complimentary breakfast was enjoyable too. The views from the window and balcony included the river and the surrounding mountains. Very picturesque!
