I never quite know how to rate hotels -- so I rate them according to what they say they are. Big Lynn Lodge isn't fancy, but it's clean (most important to me), beds are comfortable, food is delicious, people are extremely friendly (but not intrusive), and the view is simply amazing. I like the fact that the integrity of the... More

The Big Lynn is a cosy collection of cottages perched on a ridge of the Smokies. I think it's been there since the 1930s, but the cottages have been renovated and modernized to some extent recently. That doesn't spoil the homey experience. Breakfast and dinner (good country food) come with the room rate. The town of Little Switzerland is a... More

this is a wonderful, inexpensive but Rustic lodge. If you are looking for updated frills - go somewhere else...If you want to experience beautiful sunrises/sunsets, relaxed atmosphere and a touch of 1950's resort life....make sure to stop and stay! You will not regret it. The meals that came with the price of the room were very filling and delicious! The... More

Ok I must be getting old but as I was riding my Crossbone through the Blue Ridge I found myself daydreaming of the happy vacations of my childhood in the 60s. Of course those lodges of the past no longer had holes in the screens, buzzing bugs, crappy beds and moldy showers. With my memory now finely filtered through time,... More

Having stayed in 9 different hotels/motels as part of a two week vacation, none compared to the wonderful experience that we had at the Big Lynn Lodge. Innkeepers Hoyt and Vickie made us feel welcome and at home. We can't thank them enough. We arrived just before dinner time without a reservation and we were greeted in a very friendly... More

If you're in the area, you MUST stop by Big Lynn Lodge! If you're looking for a great base location to explore the Blue a Ridge Parkway, this is it. The staff couldn't be friendlier, the rooms couldn't be cleaner, and the food (breakfast and dinner are included in the price of your room) couldn't be fresher. For those of... More

I wanted to visit Little Switzerland. This place included your breakfast and dinner in the price. It had a nice view of the mountain from the restaurant. The longer you stayed there the closer you moved to the windows so that you could see the mountain view. For breakfast you could order anything off of the menu with in reason.... More

Did you know you can see a "witches broom" at the Big Lynn Lodge!! A fabulous experience! In the white pine tree just beside the parking lot-go in and and eat some lovely food and come back out and notice the dense growth on the white pine tree beside the first cabin parking lot! You are blessed to see this... More

We went here for our anniversary and my husband's birthday. Everything was wonderful. They went out of their way to make it special for us. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The views from the lodge are amazing. The meals were healthy and generous. All of the dinners included a salad, meat, two vegetables and either potatoes or rice... More
