Nice Location with lake view rooms. Sits on top of a hill that was a surprise. Pictures lake lodge appear closer to the lake than it really is. Staff was very helpful. Our room was ready almost immediately upon early check in;) Breakfast was well stocked and adequate & much better than dry cereal and milk. Quiet room, but beds... More

When we arrived, the young lady at the front desk was much more interested in the two young men visiting with her than helping us check-in. We were in tiwn for the big annual car show, which meant we trailered our show car. Well, not only was there no parking for our trailer, there was no parking for our Tahoe!... More

Thank you for your review. We always appreciate the Moonshine Cruiz-In and all of its participants. I am sorry that the front desk attendant was not attentive enough when you arrived. I will address it with them and I apologize for their lack of interest. All trailers were asked to park at the Georgia Mountain Fairgrounds to allow for enough... More

Our balcony view overlooked the woods. The facility has a nice lodgy feel to it, friendly staff, efficient check in, large well appointed room with a mild musty smell. TV reception was so bad we couldn't watch it. Loved the lobby with its huge stone fireplace, beautiful lake view, large TV, computer station, and checker board that was a hit... More

I appreciate your review. I would like to address so of the concerns you raised. Our breakfast is a complimentary breakfast that is included in your room price. During high capacity times, we open up our banquet room near the lobby to accommodate the overflow. We do have tables and chairs on the back patio for our guests to enjoy.... More

My wife, son and I stayed here for three nights. We had a standard room. The property has some age but it is well maintained and the room was clean. We thought the lake would be accessible from the hotel but the fact it isn't would not prevent us from staying here again. We enjoyed ourselves and ate well. We... More

Thank you for your kind words. Our housekeeping staff goes through great lenghts to make sure that the rooms are clean.

This is an older property but well maintained. Check in was quick and they had their staff jump on preparing my room since they knew I was waiting which is something not all hotels will do for you. They act like a family run property and not like a big chain. Fresh baked cookies in the afternoon was a nice... More

The breakfast area has no logical traffic pattern, tables are too big causing dead end maze channels. A lot backing up and looking for another way to the food and coffee. All carbohydrate(sweets) food choices, no yogurt. The carpet is decades old ( stayed 20 years ago) and the rooms were musty smelling. Beds were comfortable, pillows were acceptable, the... More

Thank you for your review. I am sorry to see that you didn't find our breakfast layout up to your satisfaction. You were here on a busy weekend and during a time when many guests were getting food at the same time. You must have overlooked our yogurt because we have it available everyday of the week on the breakfast... More

This is an older property built in 1995 and was once a Ramada Inn. Great location. The rooms are done in pine furniture. My husband and I loved our stay here. Bed was more comfy than the Hampton Inn in Murphy, NC. Room was very clean and ours had a balcony overlooking the lake - beautiful view. The usual breakfast... More

Book a lakeside room and relax - this place feels like a mountain lodge, with a real stone fireplace, club chairs, and a patio with a view of the lake. Rooms are large, comfortable, and reasonably priced. "Breakfast" wasn't impressive, but we didn't really care.

My husband booked us here for my birthday weekend and it was great! The room and view was amazing. Definitely planning on going back soon. The staff was very friendly and great at doing their job. I want to go back and get the same room for the amazing view we had.
