Stayed in the "modern" part of the Inn. Room was clean and the bed was great. Enjoyed the private balcony. Short walk to the lobby and dining room. AS always a very enjoyable trip. Even got in a couple days of hiking at Deep Creek.

It's usually in the 50s and 60s in early March, and in the 60s and low 70s in late March. I'd contact the outdoor venues you'd like to do (like ziplining or whitewater rafting, both of which are cool), to see if they are open for the season in March.

The train station is 5 minutes from the lodge. Bryson City is very small, so if anything is within the city, it won't take long to get to it. I don't know anything about the ballooning events. You might contact the lodge and see if they know where tickets can be purchased.

Is there wi-fi available on the property?
Hello. The cabins and balcony rooms have wifi. There is wifi available in the lobby of the lodge. Wifi is not available in all the rooms; but this IS an experience of being free from the short chain.
