I took my wife on vacation to Two Rivers Lodge from 8/10/14-8/12/14. This is an awesome place to stay. Great privately owned hotel. The owners are very friendly and he even came out and introduced himself and I explained that I had came with a group four years ago and he remembered us. This place is very reasonably priced and...

This was my second stay at Two Rivers Lodge. It is even improved from last time. The river bank area is greatly improved by a covered fire pit area with picnic tables, gliders, and a charcoal grill. And just like last time they have a campfire going each night for enjoying. Same as before the room was clean and everything... More

Great motel to visit. The owners are always welcoming and can recommend great rides near and far. The rooms near river are quite and cozy. We have stayed here a few times and it is always a great pleasure. Will visit again.

I've been to the Two Rivers Lodge twice before with my motorcycle clubs and am looking forward to going again in a few months. This is NOT a 5-star resort, so if that's what you want/expect find a more expensive hotel. It is, however, one of the friendliest and most relaxing places that I've stayed. The rooms are not super... More

The beautiful setting surrounding the Two Rivers Lodge, where the Oconaluftee and Tuskaseegee Rivers join, coupled with clean, comfortable, homey accommodations and genuine "At Home" hospitality provided by the lovely couple, Kathy and Blaine Shobe, is best described "like a pearl." If this memorable experience and remarkable location were an oyster than the Shobe's Two Rivers Lodge is the oyster's... More

The Two Rivers Lodge is a hidden gem located between Bryson City and Cherokee, North Carolina on the banks of the Oconaluftee and Tuckasegee rivers. The owners purchased the lodge about seven years ago and have been pouring the hearts and lives into restoring this historic hotel. It is ideal for those rafting the Nantahala river, motorcyclists, and families with... More

I would highly recommend this place. Great location, great price, and great owners. It's a little dated but that's the beauty of it. The owner gave us an ems discount for my husband being a medic and even had a crib for our little one. Will return here

The Freedom Riders Motorcycle Association of Northern Ontario decided to visit the awesome motorcycle roads in the Smoky Mountains for our annual trip. Tapped to be the guide because I was familiar with the area, I picked Two Rivers Lodge as our base for the four nights we would be in the area. I could not have made a better... More

I brought a group to this great little motel. We were treated like family. Clean rooms and friendly owners. My group enjoyed the fire circle down by the river and interacting with other guests. Blain and Kathy and the kids always willing to make sure all needs are met.
