My wife and I are pretty simple, so the lack of tv or internet was not a turnoff. We celebrated our 20th anniversary here this fall. I found this place by luck, just browsing the internet. It is a place of yester-year. My wife kept...More

Historic main lodge. Quaint aspects like lobby where guests actually hang out & play board games by the large stone fireplace are countered by other parts needing attention. Some floors are slanted, which is kind of neat so long as you are stable. If you’re...More

Response from George B, Owner at Fryemont InnResponded 4 weeks ago

Thanks so much for your honest review. You absolutely nailed it! The Fryemont is definitely not for folks who are looking for a Hampton Inn, or any other chain hotel. It is one of a handful of unique, historic wooden lodges left in the USA,...More

The rooms are nice and not small. There is no TV in the rooms and no air conditioning, but even in the summer (Aug) the rooms were good to sleep in. The Inn was built in 1923. The Inn takes you back to that time.
