We arrived on June 29th, got our keys to a two bedroom cabin. Once inside the cabin we realized that we would not be able to stay there. The smell inside the cabin was horrible, it was a musty, moldy, stale air smell. You cannot open any windows to circulate air, and you cannot leave the door open because there...

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed this cabin. There were 17 of us staying in the largest cabin they offered with was plenty of room. As a matter of fact, there were more love seats and sofas that pulled out into beds than we saw advertised on the website. The kitchen was stocked with cooking utensils, silverware, dishes, pans, glasses,...

EXCELLENT !!!!!! The staff was helpful and professional.. We left before breakfast as the resturant was not open until 6:30 and we left at 5. All they had left was a smoking room and we do not smoke but the room was clean and there was almost no smoke smell.

Would not recommend this hotel. No fridges in room, No microwave. NO free breakfast. The restaurant on site did not have a good menu and was a little expensive for the food they did offer. Additionally the beds were uncomfortable and need to be upgraded.

This motel was an excellent place to stay for our week-end road trip to TN. What made it unique was the quirky general store. Cracker Barrel may a well known restaurant chain but this place is the real deal! Full of antiques, memorabilia and food to sample and buy to take home and friendly staff.

The Smokehouse is a reasonably priced hotel in a town that does not have many options. When we stayed there the AC unit was a bit loose from the wall and the overall room was very "tired", but the staff was nice and we loved the restaurant and the store next door.
