Stayed for a week for a group trip. Tasty food and plenty of it. Rooms very comfortable. Wonderful to have wifi in the lodge. Not that we spent much time in the lodge - we were out doing trail service work. Staff at desk and staff in the restaurant were friendly.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a nice review! We appreciate how hard the “trail workers” labor! It’s not an easy job to maintain the beautiful trails of the AT, especially after the winter like we had! It’s nice folks like you who keep the trails maintained for everyone to enjoy. We appreciate your loyalty... More

We arrived at Fontana Village last week; the hotel itself looks like it has a lot to offer; however, we went during the offseason and the place seemed to be dead. We only encountered a few other guests. The facility does need some updating as it seemed like the place was stuck in the 80's. Our room had a fire... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. The off-season around here is definitely much quieter than most people often expect it to be. It’s a great time to relax and unwind, but scheduled activities are more limited. We are happy that you enjoyed the disc golf course – it is really growing in popularity! The drives to... More

We had a couple nights this past weekend to stay at the Lodge...our first time to visit Fontana Village. We were greeted at check in by Lana could not have been more pleasant and helpful. Loved the lobby with the seating around a gorgeous fireplace and the views from the huge deck were amazing. Got to the room and it... More

We met our son at the Fontana Village Resort for 24 hours 2 weeks into his AT Hike. What an awesome visit with our son and a great stay at the Lodge. Great property. Very clean and comfortable.

I have stayed at Fontana Village 4 times and have had every type of accommodation. I like that they have different levels of accommodations for different budgets. The property is expansive with many streams crossing the property that the kids LOVE to play in. There is a "bass" pond, that we have never caught anything in, and waterfall up a... More

Just returned from another visit in Fontana for Thanksgiving. Everyone here is great, from Tim in reservations to Joey and his staff in the restaurant to PJ in the social/activities! Lodge rooms are great, rustic but very clean, nice, and comfortable. So relaxing in this remote location of the resort. I just wish there were more options to eat, especially... More

Went here for Thanksgiving week. Was looking forward to a room with a fireplace, but come to find out that none of the rooms with a fireplace have a small fridge and microwave. The latter was very surprising since this resort is so located in such a remote area, with limited dining facilities available (especially in winter). We ended up... More

My wife and I visited as a last minute thought. The decision was great. We had a great time relaxing and enjoying the off-season. The lake tour should be a definite. We had a great tiem and plan on coming back in the Spring to enjoy more of the amenities and places to see.

We recently stayed in a lodge fire place room on this property. The area is beautiful and perhaps during the "season" there is much more to this place, but I was not impressed with the room or dining facility at all. We asked for a fire place room, then had to ask for fire wood. The first bundle is on... More

We had a fantastic stay in the Fontana area at Fontana Village Resort. We rented a cabin, to arrive and find it was nothing more than a little half single wide trailer.
