If you are looking for a motel style place to stay with a TV and lots of noise....stop right now, this is not the place for you. This family style inn has a beautiful view of the mountains without the distractions of city life around you. There are small trails about the inn and no TV to distract you. The...

My husband and I used to come stay at the Hemlock Inn to get away from the busy, stressful life we led in the Atlanta area. We not only came back as often as possible but began long-lasting friendships which still enrich us. We were comfortable, charmed, well-fed, and treated so courteously. The place attracts folks whose company we enjoy.

Hemlock Inn represents the best of Smoky Mountain culture -- friendly family familiarity, stunning views, saliva-inspiring food and comfortable quarters. The White family has managed Hemlock for ages, and their compassionate supervision provides a personal touch for every guest. You'll meet owner Mort at breakfast or dinner -- which, by the way, is a la carte, classic Southern dining. When...

I have not personally stayed the night here, but I have family that stays here when they come to visit me. Why am I writing a review? To tell you about the food! We have had the good fortune to be a part of several meals served at the Hemlock Inn. Meals are family style and the food gets blessed!...

The property has its flaws but we still loved it. It is quaint, has lots of atmosphere and is an interesting place to stay. In fact, we were delighted that we still had two unplanned nights in our itinerary and were able to book an additional night. Our room was clean and comfortable and situated at the end of the...

This was my second visit. I love this quaint mix of motel and b&b. We took our boys for the Polar Express package. This is the kind of place you build memories at. There are no tvs phones or wifi in the rooms. The rooms are your basic grandmothers home. The ONLY reason I couldn't do 5 star was the...

We rented the top floor of the "red cottage" for an overnight stay when visiting Bryson for a ride on the Polar Express train. The cabin was very cute! Cozy with plenty of room for our party of 6. It could use some updates. The mattresses are old and uncomfortable, I was glad we were only staying one night due...

My boyfriend and I stumbled on this inn when searching online for a place to stay in the Smokies and WOW am I glad we did. The food was delectable, the views were breath taking, and the service was impeccable. It truly is a hidden jem tucked away in the Smokey Mountains. My only regret is that we didn't have...
