The Freeze House
Enjoy our B&B in a village setting, among centuries-old oaks and mountain scenery. We offer spacious rooms, private baths, cable, AC, and a full breakfast served family style (alfresco, weather permitting). Two guest houses, with fully equipped kitchens, are also available for weekly or monthly rentals.
The Freeze House was constructed during the first World War, between 1914 and 1918, by Jessie Williams Freeze and Jacob Frank Freeze. The architecture is modified bungalow, i.e., a central hall with three rooms on each side. The modifications include a second floor, again with a central hall, and six additional bedrooms. During the winter, the house was a private home, but during the summer it was opened to summer guests from the warmer cities and towns.
The Freeze House was restored and modernized in
1994-1995, by the Montague family, with Michael Montague, the great-grandson of the
Freezes as the principal builder and contractor.
Today the house, in addition to being a bed and breakfast, remains in use as a private home.
A complimentary swim club and
fitness center is available
to all guests.
The Freeze House, on Freeze Hill, is five miles north of Western Carolina University, and 1 mile east of Dillsboro's shops, boutiques, and the Great Smoky Railroad. The Great Smokies National Park, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Cherokee Indian Reservation and Harrah's Casino, are all within a twenty minute drive.
The many area activities include hiking, birding, rafting, canoeing, gem mining, and seasonal hunting and fishing.
