Nantahala Brewing

Nantahala Brewing artfully brews award-winning, unfiltered ales made with fresh hops, whole grains and clean, crisp Great Smoky Mountain water, from one of the purest, protected watersheds on the planet. The brewery is located at in the heart of Bryson City at 61 Depot Street (across from the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. Our Tap Room is open year around with seasonal hours.

Heinzelmannchen Brewery

In a microbrewery in downtown Sylva, NC, German-born brewmeister Dieter Kuhn and his wife Sheryl Rudd are creating light and refreshing German beer made with wholesome grains, fresh hops and no preservatives. All beers are keg conditioned and non-filtered, making them smooth and lighter in body. Stop by the brewery for a tasting and tour.

Calaboose Cellars

Just 20 minutes from Nantahala Vlllage in the shadows of the Great Smoky Mountains, there’s an old stone building with bars on the windows that overlooks a small vineyard. Legend has it that the local lawman locked up the hooligans there to cool down until they went before the magistrate. Now the calaboose is used to incarcerate wine before it makes its escape! Calaboose Cellars is the smallest free-standing complete winery in America.

  • I am a local to the small town next to the village and my family and I always stay at least once a year! The staff is so amazing and sweet and our cabin is always so clean and nice. I see a lot of reviews about only the main lodge having WiFi and that's true but staying out here in the moutains is all about our beautiful views which you will always find at the village. We love the Nantahala Village and will continue to stay each year!

  • I am just one member of the Swain County High School, class of 1968, so I can't speak for everyone, but I can say that the Nantahala Village is a great place for a class reunion. THe facility was clean and well stocked, the staff was pleasing and efficient, the meal was excellent. I hope our class will be able to repeat our experience there in the years to come. Thans to NVR for a very enjoyable evening.
