The Bryson City Cork and Bean, one of the town's favorite eateries, has added luxury lodging to its menu of hospitality services. The restaurant's owners recently completed renovation of the top two floors of the 1908 Bryson City Bank building, transforming the historic structure into The Everett Boutique Hotel & Bistro with nine luxury suites, a restaurant and bar.
The hotel is the third and final phase of renovation for the century-old structure. The current owners renovated the first floor of the building in 2010 and opened The Cork & Bean, a coffee house and wine bar, which expanded to a full restaurant in 2013. This year, the second and third floors were renovated as the hotel and rooftop terrace for hotel guests.
Hotel suites with memory foam mattresses and upscale baths, and a rooftop terrace with open fireplace and beautiful city and mountain views are the hallmark amenities for the new hotel. Guests enjoy a complimentary breakfast/brunch in the Cork & Bean Bistro each day of their stay. The Bistro serves breakfast/brunch, lunch and dinner, seven days a week with daily chef specials and full bar service.
The hotel is located next to the historic Swain County Courthouse Visitor Center / Heritage Museum, and within walking distance of shops, galleries, restaurants, brewery, bookstores and the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. Hotel parking is free.
Regularly named one of the top mountain towns in the Southeast, Bryson City is centrally located for exploring the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and other scenic outdoor activities such as whitewater rafting, kayaking, mountain biking, paddleboarding, fishing, horseback riding, and ziplining.
Bryson City is in the Smoky Mountains – one hour west of Asheville, two hours from Knoxville, Chattanooga & Greenville/Spartanburg, and three hours from Charlotte and Atlanta.
