The hotel is so clean. The views are breath taking if you have a lake side room or go out on the porch. The back rooms have an ugly view that's what we had. Just a hill. The beds are are not very comfortable. That is the only downfall. The employees are so friendly. The breakfast due to covid wasn't great, but it was breakfast. They could have stopped it all together, so I'm grateful for what they did have. Plus the lady working was wonderful. I will hopefully return one day.

Comfortable, relaxing accommodations staffed by friendly, caring people. You seem to attract these kind of people as guests, strangers you pass in the hallway soon become friends. Relaxing moments in beautiful surroundings!

Nice for beautiful relaxing weekend away. The accommodations are basic but the grounds are amazing. There are also some nice restaurants in breweries within a 15 min drive. We would return to this sweet getaway.

Very nice! Clean rooms, friendly staff. Beautiful view from our room and around the lake! Even in this time of covid they do a great job of assuring your safety, while still keeping friendly and the feel you are on vacation. I really like it being of the beat and path , but being very accessible to Waynesville, Asheville, Maggie Valley, Cherokee, Bryson City, and even Pigeon Forge/ Gatlinburg area. Loved it!

The Terrace was clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and the location was excellent. The common areas were comfortable, especially the rocking chairs that overlook the lake. The rooms were clean and well appointed with comfortable beds.
