    I recently needed an "unplugged" weekend and was referred to the Tapoco Lodge near Robbinsville, NC. In fact, the Lodge is 15 miles north of Robbinsville in the beautiful western North Carolina mountains. Surrounded by elevations up to 3000 feet and more the historic Tapoco Lodge (built in 1930) is nestled into the hillside next to a gushing stream of... More

    Took a trip over to Slickrock grill with my brother today. We rode our bikes across the dragon and stopped in to check out the fare. We were very pleased with what we found here, food,drinks,service,atmosphere and surroundings were indeed A+++. Will going back as soon as time allows for sure!!!

    Historic Tapoco Lodge was just what we were looking for to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. A quiet out of the way lodge that was not too far from hiking trails and historic locations. Our room was very clean and keeping with the time period, although the bathroom was updated. The staff at the inn was wonderful and very accommodating.... More

    Although this lodge is within distance to the famous "Tail of the Dragon" motorcycle run, this place is not just for weary bikers or nature enthusiasts. It is a beautiful rustic lodge tucked among the trees and along some amazing whitewater Rapids. In fact you can order some drinks and a stone baked pizza and sit outside and let the... More

    The property is beautifully maintained. Every thing was spotless.Our room was BEAUTIFUL! The staff were friendly and helpful. The food and scenery was awesome. There are so many hiking trails. It is close to Jouce Kilmer Memorial Forest which is a must see. We hope to return soon.

    This place is a must visit if you're traveling in the area. It is probably the nicest place that we stayed in the last two weeks. I only wish that I could stay here for the week. It is absolutely beautiful, with a river flowing right by the hotel. We stayed in a cabin that was better than I had... More

    Absolutely beautiful area. Did lots of driving on amazing country roads.....tail of the dragon, Cherohala Skyway, Moonshiner 28......and Tapoco Lodge is the perfect spot to start from and come back to. Great location, friendly staff, great service and well kept. It's rustic, but very comfortable and clean. I would stay here again. And they even provide a place to wash... More

    Stop by on the motorcycles on the way to ride "The Dragon" and stopped by for some great homemade pizza and drinks. Well maintained and historic furnishings with the raging river running right by the restaurant with inside and outside seating.

    Oh Tapoco Lodge ...how I love thee. You had me at "first sight". This beautiful lodge is remote and is truly a "must do" at least once in a lifetime. If what you are looking for is an "Interstate, roadside bed only" establishment, this place is NOT for you. If you want historic beauty and a romantic getaway, book your... More

    We have stayed at Tapoco Lodge several times now, and will be back again in October (when the Cheoah runs). We love the historic ambience and attention to detail in the main lodge and rooms. I come to kayak the river, and my wife loves to read outside on the patio under the huge Maples, or hike the trails to... More
