We stayed here for a post Christmas weekend getaway. The best feature is the real fireplace in the common sitting area. Clean modern rooms and a decent sized balcony, good for viewing the lake if you are in a lake side room.

My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay. Your entire staff was extremely friendly, and answered all our questions about the area. The Lodge was nicely decorated for the Christmas season, and the fire in the fireplace was great. We felt very relaxed here.

The Lake Chatuge Lodge was a great place to stay on a recent vacation. The view of the lake is amazing and the staff is very friendly. Breakfast on the weekends is awesome, sausage, eggs, and biscuits, plus the standard continental breakfast choices of cereal, pastries, fruit, and yogurt. The lodge is in an ideal location. It's a 2 minute... More

We were on a road trip and tried to stay in Blairsville. I am glad that we couldn't find a room there because we were told about Lake Chatuge Lodge. I called and got a room for around $100. I love the feel of this place. When we walked inside it just had a warm feeling to it with a... More

At around $100/night, incl. breakfast, this lodge is a good choice. The best thing about this place is definitely the location. It overlooks Lake Chatuge and is right next to a great restaurant - The Chophouse. We had great scallops, lobster mac & cheese,etc. for a more casual lunch or dinner, try "The Blue Otter", just down the road, also... More

At a rate less than $100 at peak Autumn season I was prepared for a "two stars" experience. I was pleasantly surprised by this very nice hotel. All rooms have balconies; the front look over the mountains with the setting sun, the back look over the lake. It's a great value and I will be back. Also, be sure to... More

We took a chance and drove up without a reservation. Although we would have preferred a lakeview room, we had to be lucky with getting one of a few remaining rooms which looked out the front. The room was clean and had a friendly feel upon entering. Enjoyed the sunset from our balcony. Was worried about noise from the front... More

We recently spent 2 nights here, and were happy to see we got a great view of the lake and mountains on the back side of the hotel, just as advertised when we booked the room.

I was dissapointed. The lake side (across the street) view was limited from a small area off the lobby. The arial view online creates the appearance to be all lake view rooms which is not the case.
