Place suxs, male owner flat out rude. Stopped short of saying the "F" word to me. Totally unwarranted. Rooms small and dirty. Son stayed in one of the cabins and I saw spider cobwebs which speak of how run down and unkempt this place is. Camping with a tent and fear would be better. Oh yeah, hold on to your... More

Our extended family recently rented four cabins at Pine Hills Lodge over the Thanksgiving weekend for a two night stay. My husband and teenage son and I stayed at the North Star cabin, the largest cabin available. Access to this cabin was down a treacherous stone path. Upon entering we were quite taken aback as the main bedroom we entered... More

The people there were very nice. That's about it. They were very accommodating for us. I would have given it one star if it weren't for them. The room was dirty. The sink barely worked. The bathrooms (two) were down the hall, and only one had a sink which one would call "working". First thing in the morning (first shower... More

I booked the North Star cabin for our family of four for a wedding we were attending at this place, referred to on their website as having a "resort atmosphere". Maybe if your idea of a resort is based on life in Appalachia, could this be accurate. The lodge is over 100 years old, so I was not expecting a... More

We attended a wedding at the lodge this past weekend. The place looked very shabby. We froze in the hall where the wedding was. Even with the heater on it was so cold. We had a cocktail hour in the pub. The food was ok the drinks strong but way overpriced!. The decor was nice with all the Christmas decorations.... More

Thanksgiving dinner was abysmal. I cannot comment on the cabins, but if they are anything like the food, avoid this place!! It is obvious that all the owners really care about is making money. They are unfriendly, and treat the customers like cattle.

I am a professional musician and was hired to come up the Pine Hills Lodge to do a wedding the other day. This place just reeks charm. Hannah and her husband Terry were terrific hosts. I was given a bungalow that was excellent - clean, cute, charming, nicely remodeled. The bar is excellent and Craig, the bartender was just marvelous.... More

The location is just beautifu! However, I would rather stay a card board box than deal with the husband and wife that own, and operate this place!! As soon as we got there it was a disaster!! The couple was rude, careless and made us feel as if we were imposing on their time. Complete waste of money and we... More

We stayed three nights. No TV's or telephones? This is why we stayed here. Doesn't everyone have a cell phone these days? Can't we live without TV? We walked, read and enjoyed the quiet. My husband painted watercolors. We birdwatched. Saw Band-tailed pigeons, ash-throated flycatchers, phainopeplas, black-headed grosbeaks, Wilson's warblers, mountain chickadees, Steller's jays, acorn woodpeckers and more. There is... More

We went for an amazing weekend, and upgraded to one of the nicest cabins they have. It was charming, and this is an early 1900s property so we did not expect a modern hotel. The rooms lacked TV or phones, which was a great addition since we went to the mountains to "get away." The hotel has a nice bar,... More
