I'm not sure my family fits the demographic that the Hemlock mainly appeals to - couples and groups of friends on weekend getaways - but it's the perfect prescription for this hectic family. We have three kids ranging from 11 to 4 and we consciously seek out escapes just like the Hemlock Inn, where the emphasis is on the outdoors,...

Our first visit to the Hemlock Inn was nearly 25 years ago. We were on our way home from a trip to Orlando's Disney. We searched for a stop on the way home to counter balance Disney. What a wonderful first experience. Our children fell in love with the Hemlock and we have gone back over the years. If we...

This property is showing its age, but you can't beat the staff for friendliness and helpfulness. The innkeeper makes one feel welcome; it's almost like being part of a large family. The meals are great. Many of the rooms have screened-in porches. It's a quiet, peaceful place, worth visiting more than once.

I'm 42 years old and first started visiting the Hemlock Inn when I was a kid. My wife and I now take our boys (12 & 5) to the Hemlock and it is such a special place. When I first started going with my parents Mr. and Mrs. Shell ran it. Their daughter and her family now run it. They...

This was our first visit. We stayed for a week for our summer vacation. We travelled with our 11- and 14-year-old who never got bored with the beautiful views, the public spaces with books, dominoes, shuffleboard, ping-pong, and hummingbirds. Not far from downtown Bryson City with quaint shops and good restaurants. We loved the Deep Creek River area, only 5-10...

The Hemlock Inn is not for everyone. If you require a cocktail with your dinner, a pillow top mattress, a TV in your room, a blush bath robe waiting for you or room service, this is not your place. If you are offended that someone wants to ask a blessing before you eat your food, go elsewhere. If you are...

This was my third visit to the Hemlock Inn; on the last night of our week's stay, my fourteen-year-old son made me "shake on it" promising that we would return annually. What more of an endorsement could you want? I first visited nearly twenty-five years ago as a newlywed, returned ten years ago as a single mom with two children,...

If you are a 5 star type then you will be too distracted to really enjoy what this great place has to offer. If you are not a 5 star type, then you will love the place for the location, food, hospitality. This is one of the few remaining places that rises above the low moral standards that our country...

Our family stayed in the Innkeepers cottage. The two master suites on each end of the cottage worked out great for us. Breakfast and Dinner are included. Good food and fellowship. This place is relaxed and unplugged and a little off the beaten path. Mort White runs a relaxing and family oriented place. We'd recommend if you want this type...

My kids and I spent two nights here in July. It was truly wonderful. There was so much that I enjoyed here---the food, the view, the rocking chairs, the people, and more. First, the food. I grew up in the south, but have lived away from there for over 20 years. Being treated to the southern meals here was absolutely...
