We liked everything about Shadow Mountain. The attention to detail is wonderful. Everything works. The rooms are big with little kitchens. It's clean and quiet. You can open the windows and enjoy the clean, mountain air. You can sit outside in the pretty yard among the pines or on the porch. It's close to shops and restaurants in One of... More

This lodge is great! It is quiet, the managers are terrific, and the staff is great whether you want to be left alone or want your room cleaned daily! The cabins look very nice and cozy and we will stay in one of those next time!

This lodge was perfect. It met every expectation that we had. It was clean, had plenty of fresh towels, dishes and a flat screen TV in the room. We were able to watch the movies we brought and they also had movies to rent for just $2.00. We would highly recommend this property. Easy to get to and very quiet... More

Clean, cozy, quiet and friendly. Beautiful grounds and friendly people. Hard to beat. We love the location. Has everything you need for a night or a week. This is a very charming place and you can see that the owners are proud of what they have to offer.

This was the first time we stayed at Shadow Mountain Lodge but certainly not the last. It was so relaxing and comfortable to sit out with coffee in the mornings or wine in the evenings, even in the middle of hot day. The kitchenette was stocked with everything we could have needed including tons of coffee for a several day... More

Spent 3 nights in one of the cabins. Cabin was quite and comfortable. King size bed was very nice. Good size cabin for two.The cabin has its own small front porch with a small table and two chairs. They was also a nicely stocked kitchenette. Overall, very nice place to stay.

Five stars based on comps in area. This is a cute little lodge with nice rooms and a good location. A mini-kitchen is included. That makes it nice for reheating pizza et al. We were here for 4th of July weekend and the town was overrun with Texans--like locusts they eat their way across the landscape. Signs of their spoor... More

We stayed in a cute updated room in the “lodge” area right off Main Street. Outside the room is a pleasant sitting area complete with hummingbird feeders, pine trees and a hot tub. It is very nice and peaceful. Inside, the room and furnishings are clean and comfortable. The air-conditioning worked great. The décor was “cute cabin with bears”. There... More
