We are a small, family owned motel sitting right on the banks of the Tuckaseegee River, less than a mile from the shops and restaurants of downtown Bryson City and the Great Smoky Mountain train depot. Our location is convenient to town as well as the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Deep Creek, the Nantahala National Forest, Tsali Recreation Area, and the towns of Cherokee, Dillsboro, Sylva, and Franklin. We are also a good stopping point before or after you take a spin on the Tail of the Dragon, the Moonshiner's 28, or head out to Fontana Lake & Dam. There are multiple options to fish, raft or kayak, zip-line, go horseback riding, hike, or rent boats and bikes, and all within a 30 minute drive! If you feel lucky, you can even try your hand at the gem mines in the area or the nearby casinos!
Our hotel is an older building, but thoroughly renovated, and the rooms are kept very clean but simple. We aren't fancy, we provide the basic amenities so you will have everything you need but you won't pay for a lot of extras that you don't need. This is a quiet place to come sit on our river deck and watch the water go by to relax after your day of outdoor adventures in the Smokies or in the Nantahala National Forest. The rooms have a variety of sleeping arrangements, some have one bed and really only hold 2 people comfortably, others have two beds and will sleep up to 4, and we have one family cottage that can sleep up to 6 people. We are not allowed to have additional people in the rooms so please respect the allowed occupancy, we do not have roll-away beds or cots and blow-up mattresses are not allowed. Our rooms are non-smoking and that includes all types of smoking whether electronic or not, and legal or not! We do not allow pets in our rooms, only ADA certified & trained service animals are permitted. All rooms have hard floors, flat screen TVs, a table & chairs, mini-fridge/freezer, microwave, and coffee maker for your convenience.
