My car club goes twice a year to "The Tail of the Dragon" to rid our cars of all that excessive tire tread we find so annoying. There are a LOT of small hotels and inns to choose from, but only FVR works for us. They can accommodate a LOT of us, and there is ample parking. For those who... More

By far the best lodging so far on the trail. Ashley in the restaurant, Laurie and Susan in the pit stop, were the best servers so far as well! Totally worth a zero! Its truly a great old hotel. Good beer selection too.

Ashley was my bar tender and made the choices easy to make off the menu. The staff welcomed the hikers with smiles and great service. Rooms were clean and well priced. Paid vacation time and raises for Ashley, Susan and Laurie!

Over the past seven years we have made it a goal to visit Fontana Village Resort several times a year. These visits are usually during Thanksgiving and St. Valentine's Day or as a stop over when going to other destinations North. I believe we have been able to achieve our goal six out of seven years.

We were suffering from cabin fever in early 2015. Just needed some hiking and getting outdoors. We love to do some serious hiking which means 5 or more miles and sometimes even more than 7 miles in a day. We could not have found a better place to get outdoors and also celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary than this wonderful... More

We were looking for something that could be rustic or upscale at the same time. Fontana Villiaage fit the description. Poolside Cabana room is the way to go for a more romantic experience. GREAT food, comfortable rooms, and the marina is just a quick drive away. We will absolutely stay here again.

We stayed at the village for 5 nights during the holidays and I was not impressed. For being off season the cabins were over priced for what was available to do at the resort, the area of the resort we were placed and the cabin itself. When they say a village it is a village, our cabin faced a parking... More

Thank you for your review. We are an older property and our lodge and cabins are decorated to have a lodge feel/rustic charm. While most guests enjoy that, it is not everyone’s taste.
