Enjoyed our stay. The cabin was so nice. Loved the fireplace. And, the screened porch would be great if the weather had not been so cold. My only suggestion would be to have better utensils in the kitchen. All the non stick finish was gone from the skillet, so it was difficult to even cook an egg. Otherwise, a great... More

The cabins are a great place to relax and hide from those worldly frustrations! We'll be sure to get the new utensils in there as soon as possible. We appreciate you're comments.

Air Conditioner too loud. Kept going on and off around 2 am. Since I was leaving first thing in the morning I did not notify staff until I checked out. Pillows were rock hard so not a good night night sleep. Price was a little to high for the experience.

We stayed in the lodge for 2 nights, and found it just perfect. All staff was friendly & accommodating, the room was spacious, and they are dog-friendly. We loved the live music which is in the great restaurant, and the gift shop is awesome as well. Absolutely recommended.

We are staying at the BW Smokehouse Lodge in a cabin for an extended stay and the only way I can describe it is awesome. The staff is friendly and helpful and the cabin is incredibly well taken care of. The resteraunt has delicious food well priced but the store is pricey. Had a very enjoyable stay and have already...

The Smoke House is definitely not like anything else you'll find up and down the highway. We've been here in the hospitality business since 1960, and very proud of it. We're not for everyone, but we've built a huge customer base of folks who like our casual down home style of friendly customer service, real wood and stone features around... More

Friendly staff, great place to stay when traveling between Florida and Illinois. We have stayed repeatedly because it is such a beautiful location with good food and a nice setting. From check in to check out, it is a smooth process.

We travel to this area a couple of times a year and the Smokehouse is our first choice for a hotel. The hotel is well kept, clean and comfortable every time. But the staff is what makes this place.

The hotel service was ok , but there were no coffee in the lobby because they ran out of filters and my room had no curtain shower. I did not report it because I wanted to know if when they came in the next morning they would notice that in the bathroom, when they went to clean it, had no... More

Wonderful location. Very much 'country' atmosphere. "Back in Time" treasures. Clean accommodations. Fire in the Hotel Office. Coffee available at all times. Out door pool available in the summer months. Easy access to pharmacy and any aminites that may have been forgotten if you have chosen to stay in one of the cabins.

Hair in bathtub, thin walls, noise from road and parking lot, carpet dirty, flies in room. Should be a $40 hotel room. I have stayed in worse, but only for one night when I had to. Their sign says "Award winning", that must have been in the past.

The Smokehouse is one of those interesting, wooden, old time stops you discover every now and then while travelling. It seems many people return time and time again for their version of comfort food, barbecue of course. I had the buffet for dinner and enjoyed it, although I did not find it fantastic as I expected. This business is prominent... More
