My husband and I and two friends visited Tapoco Lodge for the third year in a row last week. Once again the owners and staff, whom we consider dear friends exceeded our expectations. We stayed in a cabin and loved the privacy as well as visiting with other guests in the lodge and chatting around the fire pits. Ronnie and Terri are such wonderful hosts and the staff is second to none. Care is taken to ensure every detail of your stay is perfect. Ronnie and Terri and the staff truly love the smokey mountains, the history and the people and are kind enough to tell you the stories so that you can also appreciate the area. There are many activities at the lodge including hiking to beautiful waterfalls, pool tables, watching old movies or playing tennis. The lodge is located in proximity to the Joyce Kilmer memorial forest, the tail of the dragon, the Fontana dam and many other attractions. To say we love our time at Tapoco would be an understatement. We are already looking forward to next year.
