We had a wonderful time at Smokey Shadows Lodge. Bud and Ginger are super nice, the lodge was perfect for our family group of 24 people. We rented the entire place and had full access to the kitchen and dining room. Enjoyed the beautiful views from the huge porch, Wheels through Time Museum and tubing in Cherokee. We had a... More

Mountain Cabin like it's supposed to be! We took 13 youth and 2 couples for a ski getaway. Upon our arrival Ms. Ginger, Ms. Tracey, and Ms. Diane were all there to greet us and give us all the info about the property and kitchen. If you don't feel welcomed here you need a check up, they are so friendly... More

We love this place. Authentic rustic awesome place. Beautiful views, old log cabin feel. Very pleasant staff. This place gets extra stars just for seclusion and atmosphere alone. I would normally withhold a star for just a few little things: no hair dryer and no creamer or sugar for the coffee in room, and just not having hot food for... More

It's like your favorite pair of jeans. It's the cabin or ranch house you would build if you could. It's warm in the winter in the great room with the fireplace. It cool on the porch in the spring, fall with amazing views. Take a book and you can read it while relaxing on one of the window seats. If... More

I have had the pleasure of staying yearly at Smokey Shadows Lodge. Usually in the spring but have also been in the fall & winter! It is a very special place with an ambience all it's own. Morning begins with a delicious breakfast and cup after cup of coffee shared with good friends to a day of delight sometimes spent... More

Smokey Shadows is unique. The lodge and cabins do not simply provide a place to sleep and eat, but creates experiences and memories for my family. The owners (Ginger and Bud) are always truly welcoming and accommodating. We now refer to our trips to North Carolina as our trips to Smokey Shadows. It is an amazing retreat to experience with...

My husband surprised me with a getaway to Maggie Valley. The lodge is quaint & rustic with beautiful views of the mountains. The family style dinner was tasty & fun. Miss Ginger makes the experience even more special. You feel like you are staying with family! I can't wait to go back.

If it is food so good it will make you want to "slap 'yo mama", then this is the place. Entrees play second fiddle to the "just right" veggies. Tomatoe pie is my particular favorite, salad is very fresh and crisp. Dessert, usually my main reason for eating the meal, takes a back seat to the veggies. Ginger is wonderful... More
