A Bryson City, NC Boutique Hotel in the Heart of the Great Smoky Mountains

The McKinley Edwards Inn is located on Schoolhouse Hill, overlooking Bryson City with a view of the Great Smoky Mountains. We're two blocks away from town traffic yet convenient to downtown restaurants, shops and attractions, including the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad.

The Inn offers upscale boutique hotel lodging in a historic Bryson City landmark. There are 12 large guestrooms plus a two-bedroom, one bath cabin with three queens, and hide-a-bed and full kitchen, perfect for a family. Three rooms are pet friendly.

The Inn offers guests a continental breakfast in the main house, which has multiple common rooms for activities such as TV, movies, board games and visiting. There is a large public great room for events, workshops and small weddings.

Lodging is in a separate building just a few steps from the main house.

A Year 'Round Destination

From spring thru summer, Bryson City offers an endless variety of outdoor activities – hiking, tubing, swimming, fishing, waterfalls, whitewater rafting, kayaking, paddleboarding and boating. In the fall, the Smoky Mountains take center stage with the annual display of brilliant autumn colors.

The holidays are always special, especially for families riding the Polar Express. And in the quiet of winter, the Smokies are the ideal setting for romantic getaways.
