Located on a hillside overlooking Bryson City with a view of the Smokies, the McKinley Edwards Inn offers upscale boutique hotel lodging in an historic Bryson City landmark. The main house — currently undergoing renovation — has multiple common rooms for TV and movie viewing, rock fireplaces, and a 30 seat dining room.

McKinley Edwards Inn was formerly the Charleston Inn, a B&B that closed in 2012.
