What a beautiful and interesting Inn. We just went for drinks at the bar, but ended up staying for dinner. Sarge, the bar tender was a hoot! So interesting to talk to and very kind! He suggested the rainbow trout and boy was he right!...More

We regret our dinner at the Fryemont— The entrees were average, the side dishes were bland, and the service was poor. Our server was quite unhappy when she made an error with one of our desserts and had to bring us the one we ordered—Bryson...More

The Dining Room at the Fryemont is a throwback restaurant. It is an old fashioned place that gives you plenty of everything and lots of choices. You will be served more food than you can ever eat. The service is great too!

We stayed @ the Inn and were dazzled by the 5 course I believe it was menu. The atmosphere was so cozy and romantic, rustic, everything mountainy. Loved and will return someday! Came in May 2015.
