Resort is very spaced out however after one visit you can definately be prepared for the next. A place for a true vacation as wi-fi and cell service is minumum - which was okay for us. Food at main dining grill had few choices but the meal and service was great. the pool/cabana area would definately be the prime spot... More

The employees were very friendly and informative of all the sites to visit. The views of the Great Smoky Mountains are breath taking. If you want to be daring take a bike ride on the Dragon, 318 curves in 11 miles. The resort provides cabins for large groups and for smaller groups. All the cabins come equipped with a full... More

I stayed in one of the cabins with a few friends while on a rider's retreat in 2012. The cabin was clean and had modern utilities. My only complaint was that our particular cabin didn't have a great parking area. We had a gravel driveway, which worked fine, but can be a little nerve racking at night on a motorcycle.... More

Set in gorgeous country the resort is incredibly picturesque and the staff are all delightful and very friendly. I would unhesitatingly recommend this place to anyone. Downsides were a very sketchy WiFi internet connection coupled with zero cell coverage, making doing business a challenge; not impossible, but a challenge. The room was very nice and the bed comfortable, but the... More

We stayed here after driving Tail of the Dragon. Very nice lobby. There are many cabins but we stayed in the main lodge. Nice room....nothing fancy, but comfortable and quiet. Visit the Fontan Dam during your stay. It is very big and interesting.

Thank you for your review. Fontana Dam is certainly worth seeing as the highest Dam east of the Mississippi and the reason that Fontana Village Resort exists today. More

Clean and organized with friendly staff. Remote with the food being somewhat boring and overpriced. Cabins are outdated but clean and adequate for a rustic stay. Bed was a small queen. We need a king so I found myself sleeping in one of the twins. Dogs were allowed which is why we chose this location. Thank you for allowing our... More

We just had a wonderful family reunion at this resort. We had a 2 bedroom and a 3 bedroom cabin. Both were updated, clean and had great mountain views. We had 3 kids with us. They loved the pool, putt putt golf, game room, karaoke and the smores by the fire pit. They really loved getting snow cones every day... More

We spent the day on our motorcycle riding the Cherohala Skyway and Tail of the Dragon. We stopped at Fontana Resort for dinner. The restauranr's manager, Joey, circulated in the dining room to chat with the guests. A very pleasant atmosphere. We'd visited several years before, and know their creme brule dessert is the best we've ever tasted. Kayla was... More

We didn't stay at the resort - just stopped by to have a dinner at their restaurant. Waitress Ashley went out of her way to modify our order to accommodate our restricted diet. Broiled trout with sweet potatoes and asparagus was superb - would definitely visit that place again.
