This "hotel" is amazing. I say "hotel" because it is more like a hunting lodge. Grand lobby with large stone fireplace with pool room off to the side. Amazing wrap around porch that also houses comfortable rocking chairs and tables over looking what can only be described as one amazing mountain view. My husband and I stayed here over New... More

Stayed here for two nights to fish the Hiwassee about 10 miles away. Wifi, nicely appointed lodge and rooms. Enjoyed the porch, the common rooms, and the hospitality of the interim management. This place is an easy place to find. It is convenient to the river and to Etowah & Benton for dining options or supplies. I recommend it for... More

The lodge is beautiful, the rooms are huge and the whirlpool bathtub hit the spot after along day of riding motorcycles. We had read the reviews about the TV so we brought some movies but they also had alot to choice from located in the den. There is a pool table that is really nice as well. The common area... More

Very nice lodge. Even though there is a tv in the room, there is no reception/cable. There is no phone or wifi or even a refrigerator. Rooms are very nicely decorated. We were the only guests for several days. A true get away. No food or even vending. Bank now owns property. Management company was very nice.

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.
