We enjoyed the resort amentities and overall were very happy with our stay at the Fontana Village Resort. Our dogs enjoyed the stay as well, it is a bit remote, but that is part of why we like it. There is lots to do there and it was well maintained. I do recommend this place to others.

Fontana Village went out of their way to make my son and daughter-in-law's wedding a wonderful celebration. Everyone was so friendly and the resort atmosphere let people relax and enjoy everything. So many of my family and friends told me how much they enjoyed being there! I highly recommend Fontana Village for your special event!

The area lost power before dinner our first night. We were supplied with candles and flashlights. The lobby had a roaring fire in the fireplace which... More

With a number of different accommodation options, it's a terrific place for families to spend time together. The only problem was, our visit was too short to enjoy everything as much as we would have liked! First, you're... More
