This is a difficult review to write. Why? I met several kind, helpful, cheerful, and welcoming people at the Fontana Resort. But the overall experience had some MAJOR issues that travelers should be aware of. First, the good stuff. The Mountainview Restaurant has taken a leap forward (versus their older reviews). The menu is well crafted and the entrees are... More

No electricity when we arrived to check in, but wasn't a problem. The staff had a key card prepared, and gave us a candle so we could put our stuff in the room. The Wildwood grille was open and serving food cooked on grills. You have to give credit to the staff for working around something they had no control... More

In the heart of the Smoky Mountains. Lots of activities. Great jumping off point. Tail of the Dragon and Skyway drives are great drives. Visit the towns in the area for unusual items. Gaming, trains and shopping are all within driving distance.

I went there with my motorcycle club. We choose Fontana Village because it is the nearest resort to the Tail of the dragon, wich is one of the most important places to ride curves in motorcycles. The lobby was beautiful with a "log cabin" decoration. The service overall was excelent. A lot of activities at the resort, for example beautiful... More

Every two years a family reunion is held at Fontana. I have attended twice and hoped for a better experience the second time. But alas, the same limitations exist, and I do not think they will change. We stay in a cabin with family members, and they are woefully furnished with what any resort should consider minimal. Not enough coffe... More
