The cabin was adorable and had all the amenities needed for a great stay. The bed was super comfortable and I had one of the best nights sleep I have ever had on a trip. Perfect location for hiking and close to town. Wouldn't recommend the restaurant at the lodge though, it was costly and the food was not very... More

This was our second stay at Unicoi Lodge. It is a beautiful setting for a peaceful getaway. The rooms are basic but clean. There are miles of hiking and biking within steps of the door. The staff goes above and beyond. They are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful! I look forward to staying again.

My husband and I are locals, we decided to eat at the lodge. It was a mistake. Food was banquet style, it was old and dried out. If I had it to do over again I would have walked out. My husband was sick for 2 days. I tried the food but left my plate full and only had a... More

The best part of the lodge was the peace and tranquility. We had a good time at Unicoi. The staff was great. The wifi was problematic but rest everything was good. Would definitely go back again. Great place!

Finally - after a few years of promising to renovate, they've done it, and the rooms that have been renovated are a HUGE improvement. If you're going - I would only recommend staying in those newly renovated rooms, as the old ones are outdated, with old beds and furnishings, and you'd be better off staying in Helen. However - if...

Our son and his new bride had their wedding at the Conference Center in mid December 2014. We were thrilled with everything-the food was great at the rehearsal Dinner and Reception. The overall help provided by Sara and Jamie was outstanding. Chef Christian went above and beyond to repair heavily damaged cake and Maureen took the time to get to... More

We loved this town that was full of friendly good hearted people. The normalalities of a big city is not here. Even the Huddle House looks like a small cottage. I loved it so much!!! Christmas lights and not to mention the steaks. Pauls steakhouse was insane. I could not move after the cajun ribeye but was so worth it.... More

Nice and quiet place for relaxing off the beaten path. Main building is nice, but dated. Little signage or information about the restaurant and hours of operation or prices. Could be a great place if marketed correctly.

No working ice machines on any floor or in any of the lodge buildings during our stay in December of 2014. Budget cuts with state parks are beginning to show. Increase in parking fees and overnight lodging expenses to overcome budget cuts have increased costs to customers but have done nothing or very little for maintenance upkeep or improvements. State...
