Rates & Reservations


Nightly rates are based on double occupancy. Additional adult guests in room are $10 per night per person. Children under 18 are free.

We offer a 5% discount for present and past military service members, AAA members and AARP members. When booking online, enter promo Code AAA for the AAA discount, MIL for the Military discount, or ARP for the AARP discount. There is also an automatic 5% discount for same room stays that are three nights or longer.

We accept cash and all major credit cards.

Discounts do not apply to our cabin in high season.

Cancellation Policy

We know that plans may change. However, in our location, we rely primarily on advance reservations, and cancellations are difficult to fill. So, in fairness to all concerned, please observe the following:

1) An advance deposit of one night’s rate (including tax) is required at time of reservation.

2) If paying by traveler's check, the deposit is to be received by us within seven (7) days of making a reservation.

3) Deposit will be happily refunded or applied to a new date, if cancellation is received 14 days prior to arrival. Cancellations after 14 days will forfeit the deposit. Management will consider extenuating circumstances.

4) Please Note – It is up to the guest to handle all train reservation cancellations directly with the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad (GSMR).  We cannot take on the liability of canceling the GSMR reservations.  The reservations phone number is 800-872-4681, option 1.

Smoking Policy

All of our rooms at McKinley Edwards Inn are non-smoking. However, we do have several Smokers’ Outpost receptacles on the grounds.

Pet Policy

McKinley Edwards Inn is a dog friendly facility. Due to our small size, we are only able to allocate 3 rooms for dog owners. These are available on a first come, first served basis. All dog owners are responsible for any damage their pets may cause. This includes, but is not limited to, our beautiful stained and leaded glass doors. There is a $25, non-refundable pet deposit required for each dog. Please be responsible and pick up after your dog.
