The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything we asked for was provided immediately. The room was spotless. The décor looked new and had a western look which we loved because we have horses. The bathroom was nice, roomy and spotless also. Loved the big tiled shower!! My husband wants one at our home now. We did not get to... More

Right in the center of this quaint and small mountain town. Only 20 rooms. Staff was nice and friendly. I slept about as well as I have in years..really comfortable bed and nice pillows..maybe it was the cool mountain air. Not every room has AC but most do...in the middle of summer, we woke up to 57 degrees. So probably... More

In town,good basic clean rooms. Better than Motel 6. Not a Hilton, but you won't be paying for mints on your pillow. Lots to do in this beautiful area, so why pay high prices if you don't stay in the room all day. Good TV and many channels, Refrig. Microwave.

Spent the last 4 days in the Newland area taking in the sites and playing some golf. As always, the room was great and the staff was super helpful and friendly. I can't wait until the next opportunity to go back. There are so many things to do and see in the area.

Old on the out side, new on the inside. We have been coming to a family reunion in Newland for many years and have always stayed at Shady Lawn (or it's prior names) but now this motel has been completely remodeled, mostly inside the units. Rooms have been remodeled from the floor up. New everything, granite and tile in the... More

We stayed in the spacious 2-bedroom apartment for the Highland Games weekend. It was so comfortable! Huge open living-dining room, beautiful updated, brand-new bathroom with double sinks, walk-in shower, and jacuzzi tub. It is on the second floor above the office, (no elevator, though, for those who might need disability access). The owners/managers were exceptionally friendly and helpful, answering all... More

We stayed here after getting off the Blue Ridge Parkway. It was charming, clean, quiet, safe, and comfortable. The shower was especially charming as it was large and made of very nice tile that resembled Italian marble. The bed was very comfortable and we are hard to please in this department.

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel..quaint and easily ascessible. Our only concern was that the carpets needed cleaning. Didn't get coffee one morning and they quickly brought some and apologized. If in that area would stay again.

This stay for the evenings of the 6th and 7th of July tell a lot of what I think of the Shady Lawn Lodge. It was my fourth stay. The staff remembers me from my previous visits. Clean well appointed room. Would stay again if if needed. Highly recommended.

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to Newland because of the helpful staff at this Lodge. They were always willing to provide site seeing, shopping and eating information. Our room was comfy and clean. The Lodge is close to many attractions without being in the middle of tourist traffic.
