Drama Inn

The Drama Inn "on the Oconaluftee" is a family owned and managed property. This inn is owned by Lambert Wilson and Laverne Bennett, brother and sister, who are originally from the Smoky Mountain area. Located in Cherokee historical area on the banks of the Oconaluftee River, the Drama Inn is within walking distance to The Museum of the Cherokee Indians, the Cherokee Ceremonial Grounds, the drama "Unto These Hills," the Qualla Arts and Crafts Mutual, Inc., and the Medicine Man Craft Shop. The primary goal of its Innkeepers is for the Drama Inn to be a family oriented home away from home.

The Drama Inn offers a variety of room choices to suit your needs. We offer rooms with king beds, queen beds, and double beds. We also have both riverfront, riverview and jacuzzi rooms. Each room has direct dial phones, in-room coffee, tub/shower baths, Cable TV, heat and air conditioning.
