“Awesome place to get away!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

A great place to get away, especially from PEOPLE, who don't appreciate the beautiful, rustic surroundings. It wasn't meant to be a 5 star Hilton experience!? It's a hostile with a place to get a hot shower, hot meal, meet great friends and chillax! Curtis and Maria are very accommodating and friendly. Rocket, one of a kind guy who is very knowledgeable about the trails, old school trail remedies...the list goes on.

We love this place, and we have been going for 2 1/2 years....with no plans to exclude this place from our favs!

Trail names - Giant & Hottie <3

Stayed February 2014, traveled with family

This is one of my favorite places to go! It's a beautiful and peaceful place to get away from everything and spend some time at a rustic place in the woods. The owners are both great people to get to know and they have always been really good to me and everyone I've seen come through.
Rocket is quite the character and is always trying to make your stay an enjoyable one.

We where very worn out hiking all day and where desperate for a night rest. We did not get it. Everybody was doped out and very drunk and loud. The owner was a rude drunk named Curtis and was very rude to my wife and kids and my friends. The out house was running down hill to the eating and sleeping area. How they get away with breaking that law I will never know. You can keep that dump. My next hiking trip I will stay in Gatlingburg, then camp out until I reach Hot Springs, North Carolina.
