My family has been coming here since I was a kid almost 20 years ago so it obviously is a special place for me. That being said, there is NO OTHER place to go for a weekend getaway if you are looking for a quiet, relaxing weekend! It is a wonderful place to 'unplug' from the all too busy lives...

If you want to be treated like family go here. The dinner bell is rang, the food is blessed and your food is already on the table. The view is extraordinary and the food is country style dining at its finest.

My wife and I wanted to get away for the weekend without the kids. A close friend recommended the Hemlock Inn. The rooms are rustic and quaint. The setting is secluded. As soon as we arrived, I felt we were part of a family reunion. Everyone was SO nice and friendly. The staff was very helpful with ideas of things...

We had a very nice 3-day visit at the Hemlock Inn at one of the prettiest times of the year, the first week in May. I have been going to Gatlinburg in the spring for decades, since a time when it did not get so busy until schools let out in June. However, Gatlinburg is so over-crowded all year now...

I wanted a place that would be quiet and restful-- restorative and peaceful. Hemlock Inn did the trick for me. I took my two teenage boys with me not quite knowing what their reactions would be. They loved it! As we drove away my 16 year old said that he wanted to go back. Be aware that this is not...

The wonderful food, friendly staff, secluded location, and family friendly atmosphere are just the beginning of this gem of an Inn at the Great Smoky Mountains. Every day at this Inn was a treasure to be remembered. I can't say enough of the attention to detail at this comfortable inn.

Want a beautiful, secluded surroundings with great views?! Hemlock Inn is the place to go. Want great food?! Again, Hemlock is there. The rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff are the best: helpful and friendly. One gets two meals a day with the price, and it is a delightful time of day. Big round tables, family-style presentation when...

My wife and I spent the weekend at Hemlock Inn. We really enjoy visiting the mountains and why we have not ever heard of Hemlock Inn I do not know. As first time visitors we were outnumbered greatly be long time returnees. We are definitely going back as we have already made reservations for the future. This inn is a...

Perfect place to relax. Great views, great character and friendly staff. Remember it was built in the sixties and tries to maintain that charm. It rain the night we were there, so we left the door open to the screened porch and slept like a baby. Hope to visit again.

My wife & I just returned from a 3 night stay at Hemlock Inn and we loved it! If you're a hiker, fisherman, or rafter, it doesn't get any better than this. The innkeepers are very welcoming, even showing you to your room and explaining the activities and mealtimes. I loved the lazy susan style of dining because it enables...
