What can I say! The accommodations were spotless. The "vibe" was downhome comfortable and felt very safe and friendly. The decor was different and gorgeous for each lodge room. The view out every window was inspiring. And, the new lodge owners are very hands-on and are all about making sure everyone is comfortable. I'm looking for reasons to get back... More

Words cannot describe how beautiful and timeless this hidden gem is. Nestled right in the Smoky Mountains, Tapoco Lodge is a quiet little Inn on beautiful property. My future husband and I spent a weekend here and enjoyed walking the trails on the property and learning the rich history of the Inn. For such a historic place, the Inn and... More

The scenery, the food, the lovely accommodations….and mostly the wonderful owners and staff made this a wonderful trip! We were able to squeeze in a great hike to Bear Creek Falls before checking out and are thinking of returning next weekend already to see the Release of the dam. We're not Class 5 white water rafters, but it will be... More

The lodge is so nice and comfortable. My husband and I love small bars where you feel free to talk to the table next to you. This place feels like home and it's has lots of charm. Many people travel the Dragon but not many are lucky enough to stay at Tapoco. :) We had a great time and actually... More

This is the second time we have visited the lodge and it certainly won't be the last. This visit we had three other couples traveling with us and I only heard raving reviews from everyone in our party. This is thanks to the wonderful the staff, the great food, the historic lodge and the beautiful scenery. I can't begin to... More

We stayed here in 2011 shortly after it reopened. In 2014 we made a special effort to repeat the experience. It is over 1,000 miles from home. Beautiful surroundings, superbly maintained with great food and service. You can tell it is a labor of love for Ronnie and his staff. Perfect way to end a trip to the Tail of... More

The Tapoco Lodge is excellent, the main lodge is best for the true experience of elegant lodging in the area, the restaurant was exceptional during my stay. I stayed in a cabin which was quiet and clean, simple accommodation. The owners of the lodge are good people, you will enjoy them, if you take the time to talk and experience... More

We went to Robbinsville to drive the tail of the dragon and very optimistic about the lodging options. Tapoco Lodge is a gem! The cabins and lodge are historic and woodsy. The staff is awesome and the food was amazing (5 course dinner!). Love the babbling stream right on the property. Would definitely go again. Perfect for those that want... More

We've stayed at Tapoco Lodge twice, November one year and October the next. The food, the staff, the accommodations, the scenery were all wonderful. We'd be there more often if we lived closer; it is a 5 hour drive for us. We hope to go back in 2015.
