We arrived hungry and were going to settle for concession food or small store, but when we went to the motel they had a great country buffet. big shrimp for the salad and homemade side and delicious fried chicken! Probably one of the cheapest and best meals on the whole trip!

We had a great time on this family outing. There's a paved walk way to the falls with lots of benches to stop and rest at along the way. The property is very well maintained.

Very nice hiking trails that are well marked, our favorites are the trail around the lake and the trail from the lodge at Unicoi down to Helen.

I am a trail runner. Having the opportunity to run the trails two days in a row was awesome! Much of the Helen trail runs along the creek there and was wonderful.

We were too tired to drive to town so we went to the Sunday night buffet. It was overpriced and overcooked but the ice cream was good.
