The Shady Lawn Lodge began as the Shady Lawn Motel in the 60's. In the past year, the grandson of the original owner has totally gutted and built back exterior and interiors in an upscale, well-designed, tasteful remodel. They put in spacious bathrooms with granite countertops, a 6' shower (careful...slippery floor), comfortable mattress, and nice, new furniture. Amenities of mini-fridge, microwave, flat-screen TV, and in-room coffee maker round out the convenience and comfort. Although Newland is not a tourist destination, it is a short drive to many attractions, including Crossnore School, Linville Falls, Linville Caverns, Grandfather mountain, ski slopes, tubing, rafting, and incrdible scenery. Lodge staff is friendly and responsive, and the rates can't be beat, especially for the quality. Everything was immaculately clean. I'll be back!
