We arrived on Thanksgiving morning, 2013 and stayed for a couple of days. We should have planned a longer stay, but it was our first time and we could not have imagined the wonderful experience. Dinner was superb: Turkey with stuffing, Ham, Sweet Potato casserole, green beans, mashed potatoes, ambrosia, several desserts and more I cannot remember. Other guests included... More

Within a few moments of conversation, I felt as though we were old friends! Her guiding hand is present everywhere and how nice to witness her family working so hard to please the... More

We rented the entire lodge for our family reunion. The lodge has 12 rooms with a bathroom in each room and 2 cabins. The views were... More

When I host an event there, specifically a concert, the waiting list continues to grow... Everyone loves the quaint atmosphere, the history and of course the lodge owners - Ginger, Bud,... More

I am the Youth Director for a country club in Atlanta. We have stayed at Smokey Shadows for 8-9 years now. It is located on the way up the mountain to Cataloochee Ski Resort. This makes your drive to the slopes very short. The kids love the big family room and kitchen. I love the two hallways in the main... More
