The four of us met up at Lakeview in early Aug for a "girls weekend getaway." This was my third visit to Lakeview and I had recommended it. It is a perfect place if you want casual, not luxurious accommodations in a beautiful setting with a GREAT spa and close proximity to hiking, kayaking, Smokies. Our unit (#2) had some... More

I have been here 2 other times and when I was exhausted I knew I wanted to go here. I spent 2 nights to decompress from a busy schedule and it was perfect! The tree top soaking cabana was Divine. The spa treatments are great and Paula in the lounge who serves the breakfast and wine hour is so friendly!... More

Wow what a wonderful 3 days! This innkeeper understands that a warm welcome and few tasty treats served in a tasteful tranquil setting is the perfect way to begin a vacation! Clean cozy cabins, gentle yoga, a mountain top soaking tub all prepared with the finest attention to detail. Magnificent!

I literally never write reviews. BUT....Our experience at Lakeview at Fontana was so good, we immediately came home to book another weekend in the fall. The mountain views and coffee at breakfast made for the best of mornings. The tree top cabana is nothing but peaceful. The kind and helpful staff make the experience unique and special. The Mediterranean feel... More

My wife and I have been overworked for the last couple of months, so I found Lakeview online and surprised her with a 3-day stay. It was perfect! The staff, Spa services, location were all great. The property was built in the early 50's, but the owners have done an excellent job of renovating it into a cozy, charming escape... More

Went here to just getaway and relax. The staff was so warm and welcoming. I believe there are 15 units to rent, some are in the main building and some separate cabins. The units in the main building above the cafe have a beautiful lake view. There's breakfast in the cafe in the morning and wine and cheese in the... More

The staff really make this place special - friendly, smiling, always checking on guests. If you're looking for rustic charm and a place to unplug from the daily grind, this is the perfect spot. Beautiful view from the overlook to enjoy with morning coffee or evening wine happy hour. Spa facial was fantastic. Our cottage was very clean and bed... More

I appreciated them so much for taking us in last minute when a previous reservation didn't workout right. The view was great for sunset. Looking at the lake the decor in the dining area for breakfast was adorable and great. Absolutely loved the decor. It was a touch of modern rustic which I love. Our cabin was ok. It could... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights for our anniversary trip to NC. The resort is simple and beautiful at the same time. We loved sitting on the deck overlooking the lake, the french press coffee each morning, wine each evening, and especially the treetop soaking cabana. My massage with Tanis was incredible as well. We even got to bring... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Small-scale & casual, Lakeview at Fontana evokes a quaint Mediterranean-meets-Greenwich Village ambiance; complete with charming courtyard, gourmet coffeehouse, yoga studio, and spa.
