We arrived a day late and John was very accommodating. Great place for a family reunion. The campsites are average sized, but the view makes up for it. The Ocoee river is near by and Cherokee rafting offers awesome tours.

When I first pulled onto this gravel road, I was a bit sceptical. As I drove further it more and more pretty. The lobby was huge and beautiful. Same with the rooms, I couldn't believe it. There is a gigantic tub on the left side of the room and a king sized bed on the other. It also has access... More

Rustic on the outside, cedar wood on the inside. Our room, the Bluebird room, was big and had a king bed. The appointments were antique. Nice sized bathroom. There was no television service in the room only a DVD player with some CD's. There was television service in the sitting area and a nice pool table just off the lodge... More

When we pulled in we really weren't sure what to expect. But the moment you walk in, you feel at home. The resort looks like a mini Wilderness Lodge in Disney. The rooms are huge and beautiful, the view was spectacular and the front desk was so friendly. Loved it!

We absolutely loved this lodge. It was clean and beautiful inside. John from the management company was awesome, super friendly and helpful. I would stay here again and am considering another trip in July!!! The rates were so inexpensive, I have paid double for a whole lot less.

First, the good stuff: beautiful surroundings. The campground is in a large field and a stroll across it brings you to the Hiwasee River. The sites are gravel. The owners have added a pool and pavillion over the years. The last time I stayed, the owner dropped me off upriver so I could kayak to the campsite. The not-so-good stuff:... More

Good things first...we stayed in the honeymoon suite. It was magnificent! The view, the bed, the hot tub, the bathroom and fireplace...wow! We travel quite a bit and this place was awesome! The staff was very accommodating and pleasant. Everthing was very clean. Downfalls...the rooms are paper thin. We could hear everything in the next room and a baby crying... More

We had our daughter's wedding here. It was so perfect and beautiful for the rustic lodge wedding that we were looking for. All the staff was so helpful with all our needs in decoration and any questions to have everything we wanted for a great wedding day!

We arrived at the log lodge on July 31 and left on August 3. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Even though the resort is going through foreclosure, the management who is in charge of keeping it going and getting it back in shape is doing a terrific job. The manager, John, was helpful on any questions we had... More
