We hosting a wedding and rented the Adventure Camp and a large block of Barrel Cabins and rooms in the Lodge for the Labor Day weekend. It was great! Adventure camp was the central meeting place where we all could get together, for barbecue, smores on the campfire, drinks and lawn games. The wedding party stayed there. We had the... More

We decided on the last minute to stay here for a weekend getaway to visit Helen, which is just a few miles away. Hotels in Helen were more expensive and some just ridiculous because it was an Octoberfest weekend. Unicoi Lodge actually gave us a better price than what was advertised as I called them directly. I agree with the... More

This review is for the 3 bdrm dlx cabin. For the cost of this cabin, we were expecting something nicer. There were holes in the walls, outdated carpet and furniture, mold on the shower curtain. The worst part was the cleanliness or lack of it - it was disgusting. The cleaning staff seemed to lack the skills needed to do... More

Very clean, they do need to tell wheel chair users the way to rooms without stairs. I had to back track a few times when the path lead to stairs. They need signs telling wheel chair users how to get the fire pit in the center of the buildings. From my view all I saw were stairs and did not... More

I have tried for several weeks to make reservations at one of Georgia's state parks. They always seem to booked on the weekend. I thought "WOW. Must be great places. So I booked Monday- Thursday. On Monday after we checked, we had to walk up several steps with our rolling luggage. We were assigned to D building. The room was... More

After a spectacular stay in a barrel cabin last year, we decided to "rough it" and spend a night in the Squirrel's Nest, which is an open outdoor camping platform. While it would have been nice if the Boy Scout troop sharing the site would have slept a little later, these are the risks you take choosing a place like... More

We had never been to Unicoi before and were concerned after reading some of the latest reviews. We stayed in a barrel cabin. 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, complete kitchen all utensils included, living room, dining area and deck. Down side - stairs - both getting to the cabin from the parking lot and inside the cabin. Bathroom is on first... More

We have been coming to Unicoi as a family for years and enjoyed the "barrel cabins". Had not spent time at the Lodge for 15+ years. Our visit was very pleasant. The setting is lovely- lots of planting seeds and flowers- and the room was comfortable and clean. A great place for a relatively inexpensive (we took advantage of a... More

The good news is internet service and a lovely setting. The bad news includes saggy bed, flat pillows, worn and dirty furniture and carpet, bed not made, lights and radio not plugged in, bathroom fan always on and roaring loudly as if a train was in the room, no elevator, mildew-smell sheets, and check-in staff who were slow and inefficient....
