TJ and staff were very accommodating. We had a bit of a mix up in reservations but they were able to straighten it out and make the last two days of our vacation memorable. We had a downstairs room with separate bedroom and shared bath. Everything was clean and well stocked (small kitchenette). The best part was the deep, shady... More

Had to make a last minute detour to our original plans due to tragic floods in South Carolina. Decided to head to western NC. Booked here based on other TA reviews and it did not disappoint. We had the Fallside suite which we loved. An easy walk to Main Street Dillsboro which has some terrific restaurants and shops. Plus a... More

We booked last minute and couldn't have had a better time. There wasn't much open in town but we made our own fun hiking and water full hunting. Loved this place! The setting was peaceful and relaxing. TJ and Terry were great hosts. We ended each night listening to the river in the hot tub right outside our door. We'll... More

We had two days in a nice, rustic room overlooking the river. Bed was comfortable. They serve no traditional breakfast, you have to go out for that. Close location to some nice mountain drives. We went to Dillard, Ga, and Cashiers, all in one day.

....this was a fun place to stay - It reminded me of seeing the tree house in the Swiss Family Robinson movie when I was a child! The Inn twists and turns, with many different levels. It has alot of personality - some would say it is quirky. If you are looking for a commercial chain=type hotel, this is not... More

Next time we come we will plan time to sit by the river and relax. Enjoyed our stay and the visit to the area. The accomodations were wonderful and the plus was being able to bring our four legged friend.

I could not wait to get home to write a review. We fell in love with this place the second we pulled in the driveway. First thing, it's not a B&B. It's an inn. So don't expect a full breakfast. We had never stayed at an inn and didn't know what to expect. I had read reviews from people that... More

We stayed at the Dillsboro Inn while attending a circuit event for the WSOP in Cherokee NC. Just a 15 minute drive from Cherokee, you can't beat the peace and quiet, beautifully decorated suites and the hospitality! Thank you TJ & Terry. We will definitely be returning.
