We were looking for a place to stay near the Towns County Park where we wanted to see the Rhododendrons in bloom. Lake Chatuge Lodge is in walking distance so we booked a room for two nights. Well maintained with a friendly staff. I have a strong aversion to duvets on hotel beds. They make no sense since you are... More

Thank you for your great review. I'm glad that you like our triple sheet bedding that we do here on all of our beds. I'm excited to see that you like to go "green" and take the steps.

This was a great alternative to the chain hotels. The lodge had a great lodge feel and was in a good location. we had a balcony off of our room and we could enjoy the cool morning air.

Breakfast was not to my liken. Not much and pretty plain. Nothing gluten free but fruit. But everyone else eating seem to enjoy.

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.

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.
