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. We are sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay as much as you would have liked. There are numerous activities to do onsite as well... More

This is a place to stay with kids in the middle of summer. They would be contained in an area that caters to families with children. Low rating from me has to do with the accommodations.

While we are a family friendly resort, we also have many other groups that we cater to as well. Many of whom visit multiple times a year. Each traveler that visits us is a priority... More

We stayed over the hauntober weekend while we went to the pumpkin chase on the Nantahala. We always enjoy this weekend at the village. It is a remote area so those who complain about no cell service or close restaurants probably should stay away. The main restaurant on property is excellent. Those who have written bad reviews need to remember... More

We went for one night to the Fontana Village Resort. We were surprised by how much it includes with a large lodge, restaurant, a couple stores and a timeshare community of individual cottages.
