We stayed in one of the cabins for our 25th Anniversary. We were extremely pleased with the Cabin we had and the fact that we could bring our 2 pets along with us to help us Celebrate. These pets are our family and it wouldn't have been complete without them. The cabin was greatly appointed with a comfortable bed, Jacuzzi... More

The Smokehouse Lodge and Cabins. After booking a room with the Smokehouse Lodge I viewed their website.  The advertising on their page, "Upgrade to a lakeside cabin," caught my attention. I took advantage of the offer and did just that over the phone.  I specifically requested a cabin as close as possible to the lake. I thought that some time... More

Thank you for your review and so sorry for the problems you encountered. We will definately get to the bottom of the issues with the tub, and the issue with Ms. V's attitude, neither of these are acceptable. In answer to some of your other questions, we make no reference in our advertising as to how large or small the... More

We booked our room on Hotwire and got it for a very good rate. The room was clean and roomy. The fireplace in the main lodge was cozy. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a clean, economical room. If you want fancy and upscale, this is not the place.

Arrived early for dinner. The restaurant was not busy. The menu listed smoked brisket with a side and bread. Being from Texas and pretty much being raised on brisket and ribs I didn't expect much from brisket in Tennessee. I ordered just to have a comparison to the great Texas brisket I'm familiar with. When the brisket arrived I thought... More

Thanks for your comments, and positive ranking. We hear that alot about our brisket, Smokin Man Mike puts his all into every batch of meat he prepares and smokes; he is all about the finished product, all the way from the prep, to the slicing. Thanks so much. More

We were traveling back to Florida and experienced some bad weather, we decided to find the cheapest and closest place to stop for the night, which we all know can be quite scary. To our surprise, we were greeted with this adorable place for a great price. We checked in and went down for some dinner and live music, all... More

We stayed 3 nights in the cabins which are very nice with king size bed, fireplace, and hot tub. While there, we enjoyed hiking in the area and music in the restaurant. Great place to get away and relax

The 1st room that we were assigned to had a dirty bathroom. The front desk apologized and moved us to another room. The bed was comfortable for sleeping, but I didn't want to step into the shower due to all the dirty residue stuck on the sides of the tub and shower surround. They need to invest in some bar...

Having crossed this mountain my entire life I had never stay here before. Upon our stop over we discovered the front desk folks nice and extremely polite.
