The beauty of the mountains coupled with clean, up-dated rooms that still reflect the charm & beauty of a mountain-top Lodge. Excellent staff, facilities on site, clean rooms.....just a great place! And pet friendly.

Thanks for your comments on our remodeling, we are still working on it and knocking out more and more everyday. We are getting many comments from customers about this renovation, and we are glad to be getting it done. We want the Smoke House to be Nostalgic and Vintage, but worth what we charge too. A great, relaxing experience is... More

I stayed at this facility on 24 April 2014 which was well-aware I am a Physician, hence sleep was essential. Beginning at approximately 10PM that evening, I was repeatedly awakened from a sound sleep by the room directly overhead which I later learned to be a sports team. Three calls were made to the Front Desk with the last call... More

Yes, athletic teams are sometimes hard to keep quiet, and the kids do stay up later hours than adults. We did our best in trying to resolve the issue to quiet down the adolescents, the coach finally conceded and made his visit to the room for us. From my information, the front desk offered to move you to a different... More

We spent 1 night at the Smokehouse Lodge in order to attend the Cornbread Festival. Luckily we choose the Smokehouse. Our ground floor double room was clean and good for the $99 rate. The only complaint is that we easily heard the guests upstairs when they walked. I would request a second floor room next time. Our Saturday night dinner... More

Your comments are appreciated, and will be passed on to the staff. We are still doing vast improvements to the whole property, including the noise on the second floor, and the recreation facilities. We appreciate your business and hope on your next trip to the Cornbread Festival that you'll stay with us again. Thanks! The Smoke House Gang More

This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel. It's location is approximately half way home from our Florida residence. They take pets. There is a restaurant attached that is similar to a cracker Barrel. Have never used the pool but lack of a refrigerator is a bit of an inconvenience. Rooms are clean but one time drawer... More

My family and I have been planing this trip for 4 months, we wanted a cabin so my grandson would have room to run. Well he could not play outside in the yard due to all of the bees(the size of a small bird) you had to run to your car and back into you're cabin. Than in the kitchen... More

We apologize for your problems while you were here. It is my understanding that the front desk gave you an option to move to another cabin to accommodate your needs but you declined the offer. Sounds like you had more family issues going on that we had no control over; just blame it all on us if it makes you... More

Very noisy room from sounds from outside planking and upstairs occupants who were merely walking around. Good restaurant experience and the staff was very helpful and considerate. Convenient location for business at the Universitiy of the South.
