With its roots as a way station offering food, supplies and lodging to pioneers traveling westward from the mountains of North Carolina along the Great Wagon Trail, General Morgan Inn was founded on meaningful hospitality. Today, that spirit prevails: General Morgan Inn is a place to rest, relax and recharge, no matter where you’re coming from or where you may be headed. With 50 guest rooms and one luxurious suite, the four-story General Morgan Inn & Conference Center combines a rich history with an innovative eye to the here and now.
Your approach to the General Morgan Inn & Conference Center allows you to soak in this spot’s late Victorian aesthetic, which has been carefully preserved and restored throughout its century-plus history. Indeed, it’s the jewel of Main Street, and you’ll have no shortage of beautiful details to examine at this stunning example of railroad-era architecture in East Tennessee. Drink in the rich colors, ornate finishes and relaxing elements of this inn’s décor— each detail tells a story, but perhaps none will be as good as the story you’ll write during your own stay.
