Wow. After a long drive through the mountains and no real plan to stay, I stumbled upon Lakeview at Fontana and immediately fell in love with this beautiful property, I changed my plans to stay overnight once I pulled in the long drive leading to the main house. Everything about this Inn gently guides you to enjoy the moment and... More

Cute, chic, quiet and serene - this is an awesome place to getaway and relax! After seeing Lakeview at Fontana written up in Southern Living several years ago, it's been on my list of places to stay. It finally happened this past weekend(mid-August 2015), and it's all I expected it to be. The owner, Tetia, is super nice and very... More

Wow this place was amazing tucked back in on the mountain with a great view of Lake Fontana! The staff was friendly, nice and out going! I loved the happy hour from 5-6pm the sangria was awesome. Our bedroom was nice and spacious and very clean❗️Looking forward to visiting again.

This was our 2nd trip here (1st was great and is why we went back) same time this year as last year- girls weekend. Upon check -in there was a man who was not friendly he kind of lurked around and never said "welcome" or anything and we later learned he was one of the owners. He was not here... More

We pride ourselves in being very trusting of our guests and would not intentionally make you feel otherwise. We always allow guests to split bills, pay with... More

What a great spot, the people were wonderful, it is up on a hill in the woods. The room we stayed in was super, would love to go back with my sisters. We took our French Bull dog, and everyone was so sweet to her. The pool was a great bonus.

I really hate to write this review. I want to keep this place a secret, it is heaven. I've already told my husband this would be a great go to: birthday, anniversary, Christmas every year, any year, several times a year. The staff are of the highest caliber; everyone we encountered was super helpful and happy. It makes such a... More

Highly reco this place for anyone looking for a spa/mountain/lake excursion. You can make whatever experience you want out of it: a solitary soul-seeking with yoga, beautiful views, massages, and delightful unobtrusive staff; a romantic getaway with as little or as much interaction with other guests as you desire; an athelete's dream with hiking, biking, boating, yoga...; or come with...

We so enjoyed the simple elegance of our short weekend. We hiked the trails, watched the sunset, hugged in the exhilarating spring fed pool. The breakfast and cocktail hour were added bonuses... Very lovely spread. All staff were warm and welcoming. The morning massage was the perfect way to start a day. We would definetly return

My wife and daughter stayed here over the past weekend and we loved it! It is not close to a main highway as claimed by a previous reviewer, it was extremely quite and very clean! There is a short 5-10 ride into town, but I was fine with that as I did not want to be in town. The staff... More

My wife and I booked a package at the hotel for a relaxing get-away. We included multiple spa treatments. The hotel itself is a series of rooms and cabins. Everything was clean and orderly. The morning coffee and light breakfast was excellent . Unfortunately, that's about all the good I can say. The service was indifferent to our needs. We... More
