I have stayed at Uncle Johnny's many times now and have ALWAYS had a wonderful time. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They are willing to go above and beyond to meet whatever needs you may have. Uncle Johnny and Charlotte, the owners, are the nicest people you will ever meet. Whether you are hiking the trail or looking... More

I had a drop box of re-supplies sent here and stayed at Uncle Johnny's after four days of an 11 day section hike on the A.T.. While staying the night with some South Bound hikers a couple days before getting there, many of them voiced complaints of a man named Sarge and him telling them prices over the phone and... More

At about 9 am on July 12th a very pleasant young man,"Texas Turtle", hiked in. He was waiting on his mother who was driving up from New Orleans. Turtle did not spend the night with us. He did check out our hostel and several cabins for "future use". He bought a shower, laundry service, a top of the line backpack... More

I am an Appalachian Trail hiker and really needed a place to rest and regroup after a rough hike from Hot Springs to Erwin. Uncle Johnny's is right off of the AT and had everything I needed from tent pegs (sold in singles), SNICKERS bars, fuel, trail food, a hot shower (WITH plenty of shampoo and conditioner included- that is...

While on a hiking week seven years ago, I happened to come across Uncle Johnny's. I can best describe it as a little bit of heaven on earth. The location is a beautiful mountain spot directly off the AT and beside the Nolichucky River. The cabins are clean and cozy. There is a hostel for hikers and abundant camping sites.... More

Has everything you can possibly need in store or someone can find it for you and are happy to help. Amazing location right on the river, with Uncle Johnny himself to help... More

The location is right off the trail. We had called and gotten a price before are arrivals but when we went to check in the man named sarg would not give us that price. When we said we were leaving he gave us the price they had promised earlier. This same thing happened to several other hikers that we talked... More

In the years before moving to Erwin we would always visit Uncle Johnny's hostel when we were hiking in this area. Never had a single problem and they have everything you could possibly need. The bunkhouse is well.... a bunkhouse and by definition isn't a 4 star hotel with amenities - it's a cheap place to sleep. For more comfort,... More

This is my second overnight stay at Uncle Johnny's. I stay here to save money on lodging during my trip to or from Asheville. The first time I stayed here, the cabin was brand new and felt almost like a hotel room. This time, over 5 years later, it has a well used look. The cabin room was dusty, a... More
