Hemlock Inn Review

This folksy, friendly mountain inn on 50 acres above Bryson City is the kind of place where you can rock, doze, and play Scrabble. The all-you-can-eat meals (breakfast included in the rates, dinner packages available) are prepared with regional foods and served family-style on lazy Susans at big round tables. Rooms are close to basic, and in warm weather the little portable air-conditioners don't quite do the job. Be aware that the Hemlock Inn has somewhat of a Christian religious atmosphere, with no alcohol served or permitted in public areas and grace often said at meals.
