The Atmosphere is excellent.  We just loved staying here and will be sure to come back.  The food was most excellent.  Our compliments to the chef.  What a wonderful stay ! We love it !

Wonderful accommodations!  The Prairie Suite had a warm, "homey" feel that is second only to home.  It has old house charm with modern convenience.  The hospitality was wonderful and warm, including the great meal we enjoyed in our suite.
Over the years we have stayed in many hotels.  Our stay at the Calhoun House Inn & Suites tops them all.  We enjoyed the warm hospitality of a bed and breakfast with the privacy of hotel in the spacious suite.  This is also the cleanest place I have ever stayed away from home.
Ed & Shirley you have met your Goal, the place is just like home.  Thanks

Thank you so much for such a wonderful place to spend New Years.  The suite is absolutely amazing: we remarked several times that we would love to live here!  I am so happy we chose to stay here rather than in a cabin:  the house is beautiful, the view is gorgeous, the location is perfect and the hospitality is an ever-present and much appreciated kindness.  Anytime we are in the area, we'll be staying here.  Happy New Year!

Thank you for the goodies also!

What a wonderful place to stay.  The Calhoun House is lovely and our Suite (Movie) was great.  Being met upon arrival and personally shown to our room added an extra special touch.  Our granddaughter enjoyed the movies that were provided.  We were impressed by the cleanliness of the place and also the food & beverages that were provided.  Will definitely return and will share our find with friends.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!  The apartment (suite) was perfect.  Reminded us so much of Charleston, SC decor.  We loved it!  Great time on the train and survived our first white water rafting.  "Didn't even fall out!"  Walking through town was wonderful in the evenings.  Good food, great accommodations, exciting entertainment & relaxation.  What more could you ask for?
Thank you,
Ron & Kathy
Thomasville, NC

Wow!  What a wonderful place!  We loved the movie theme and the decorating was terrific.  The porch was perfect to view the fireworks.  Way more than we expected.  Our boys enjoyed the train ride and nearby Santa's Land.  Thank you very much for a great weekend get-away.  We look forward to visiting again.

Like a home away from home, you've create such a charming and comfortable place for your guests.  We've stayed in many places, but none as perfect as yours.  It's truly memorable - and very thoughtful.  We'll be singing your praises clear across the country to San Francisco - it will be a highlight of our visit to your very beautiful spot here in the Smokies.
Jack & Peggy
San Carlos, CA

What a delightful spot to spend time away.  The rooms themselves are wonderfully appointed for every need.  The theme decor is tastefully done.  It's apparent a lot of care was taken to create an inviting & relaxing atmosphere.  I could easily come here with a good book & never go outdoors.  BUT.... there's so much to see!  We loved Clingman's Dome.  Great view.  In Cherokee we saw Indians in full dress.  The Bryson Bakery serves delicious warm fresh baked cinnamon rolls. "MMMM".  As our gov'nr says..."We'll be back"

What a great place to spend a long weekend!  We enjoyed exploring your lovely town and hiking the Deep Creek trails.  The B&B is very nice and comfortable.

You have a great place.  We'll never forget your hospitality.  Love the movie theme.  We will be back.

My husband Thomas, our 15 month old son Cole and I had the most awesome time here in Bryson!  We could have not asked for more.  We needed a place to relax and get away, and just spend time as a family once more before Thomas deploys to Iraq in a week or so.  We will always remember this trip, and plan to make Bryson and the Calhoun House our getaway vacation spot!
*Crystal

We had a terrific time here in Bryson.  The B&B is very nice & love the movie theme.  We got a massage from Karen & it made the weekend so relaxing.  It was wonderful.

Prairie Edge Suite Testimonials

My husband was looking for a nice place to stay for two couples.  Happily, he found this wonderful inn that offered all we were looking for AND walking distance to train, food and anything else we needed,... or wanted!  And what a pleasant surprise when we arrived.  The inn is more than we expected, everything is so well done, with such quality materials, and comfortable.  We shopped, rode the train, ate and happened to be here for the Chili Cook-off.  We even went to the music at the Depot on Sat. night!  A fun weekend for our friends and us!  Thank you!
Richard and Peggy

Thank you so very much for your hospitality.  This place is wonderful and I loved it.  We will be back to stay longer next time.  I loved this suite, it is me to a tee.  Everything is perfect, wouldn't change a thing.  We really have enjoyed ourselves.  This is really what a vacation is all about.  Thank you for being part of it.  Hope to see you all again soon.  Thanks again!

    We're so honored to be your first guests!  This is a wonderful, cozy house.  And the location is perfect.  We walked right down into town for our magical ride on the Polar Express.  We also enjoyed the Christmas festivities - the candlelight stroll through town singing carols and hot chocolate and cookies at the church.  What a wonderful holiday weekend!  We'll definitely be back.

    We also enjoyed your suggestion of Pasqualini's - the veal was great!
    We will be sure to pass on your wonderful hotel!

Toy Box Suite Testimonials

We enjoyed our stay.  All the conveniences of home along with a good location made our first Polar Express trip perfect.  The kids actually thought they stayed in Santa's workshop due to the added decorations of toys & Christmas.  Thanks for the walk through letting us know where everything was located.  We had a great time!
The Stroud Family

Ed & Shirley,  Thanks for your kindness, and hospitality.  The stay at the Calhoun Inn was relaxing.  The Smoky Mtns. are a great place for a motorcycle ride.  We really enjoyed the local attractions, i.e.  Cherokee - Smoky Mountains National Park - Gatlinburg and the quaint Bryson City!  What a little bit of heaven you found and built.  We're certain to return.

What a nice surprise when we opened the door.  Very cozy and homey.  Thank you for taking time to do the little "extras" to make our stay here special.  We were here to ride the train and then whitewater rafting.  I will highly recommend the Calhoun House to my friends and if ever back in this area, we'll be back.  We pray God's blessings on you.

It has been a pleasure to visit this sleepy town & simply relax!  Our suite is very nice & the help & Hospitality have been overwhelming.  Bryson City is a nice place to be as you can unwind in peacefulness or take a scenic drive to a little more excitement.  Next time we are in Bryson City, I'll definitely come back here.
