I had planned on staying for 2 days but ended up staying five days. The room was spotless, the beds comfy, and the motel quiet. Do believe what you hear about it being cooler on the mountain; I had to close the windows and turn off the ceiling fan each night so that i wouldn't catch cold in the middle of a summer heatwave so don't worry about there being no A/C there. The motel has great views since it's higher on the mountain than the other places, and you definitely feel like you're staying somewhere special; with the other motels lower in the valley, you wouldn't have known you were somewhere different. This motel is the closest to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the best views of the Smokey Mountains so it makes for a great starting point for all your destinations. The owners were just great, they do make you feel like family. Their suggestions on where to eat and what to do were right on the money. I'll make a return visit every year and can't wait for the fall foliage season!
