We just want to thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful Inn. We enjoyed the ambiance and atmosphere that the Inn provides. The views of the Smokies are stunning, the grounds are beautiful, and the breakfast is delicious. Thank you for being so accommodating when we had to change our reservation by a few days. The Retreat suite was stunning and we just felt welcome. Thank you for also for lighting the fire pit on our last night and for all the fixings for smores. We ended up talking to a lovely couple on their honeymoon as we were winding up our 40th anniversary celebration. We absolutely will recommend your Inn to our friends, and if we ever go back to Bryson City, we will be contacting you. Don't change a thing! You are perfect as you are. Thank you!   Sep 29

The facilities were beautiful, clean, inviting and very comfortable. I felt very safe even though I was traveling alone. The room was very spacious, furnished with all the amenities, and very comfortable.  Sep 25

The property was amazing. Lots of character as you walk around. Plenty of sitting area to enjoy the outdoors. The fire pit in the evening was a great time to meet other guests. The main house amazing as well as the breakfast room with its windows to enjoy the scenery outdoors. Our room was great. It was very clean, spacious and well furnished. The place is on my list of places to go back to a stay. You are also only a half mile from downtown Bryson City.  Sep 13

Excellent hosts!! Highly recommended if you want to get away from your typical chain hotel. I felt I was on a vacation on a family oriented hotel.  Aug 14

"We enjoy our stay if you are looking for a beautiful place this definitely the spot the rooms were clean and spacious the staff was very kind and cautious and out on the patio had absolutely gorgeous views of the mountains and it is located in Bryson city so you have access to site seeing and stores and very good restaurants. If you are ever near or in Bryson this is definitely a Bed and breakfast you would want to stay at.." Jun 06, 2021

"What a magical place! Can't wait to go back. So charming, well-kept, and overall amazing hospitality. Shoutout to the couple who manages the property, Janice and John-Michael. The best homemade breakfasts, local recommendations, entertainment, and more. They truly go above and beyond to make sure guests are happy. The McKinley Edwards Inn is a must!" Jun 02, 2021

"Such a beautiful little slice of heaven tucked out of the hustle and bustle of downtown, and yet only 0.5 miles from it! The rooms are nice and the property is gorgeous! The hosts are delightful and ever so accommodating. Breakfast is available each morning in lovely dining area with one hot item prepared each day in addition to fruit, toast, bagels, English muffins, yogurt, etc. In the evenings the firepit was a relaxing area to meet the other guests and toast up some smores! Absolutely loved it and would recommend it to others in the area!!" Jun 01, 2021
