Caught several fish out the back door, seriously it's right on the water. It was clean and beautiful. The people were so nice it was like being around family. I will be going back!!! However if you are looking for a Marriott and always in a hurry and thinks everything revolves around you and your vacation don't go it will...

The room was neat and tidy, a little dated, but served its purpose! We were there to fish the river. I'm an accomplished fly fishing angler and fly tier. I also have family and friends who live there. The store offers many things for camping and hunting and fishing as well as groceries. The closest store is 25 miles down...

this is an old wayside motel. Cinder block walls. Small 3' square showers. And it's right on the river. Don't come here if you're looking for luxury. It's more like camping. Love this place. When you open your back door, you have a fire ring, a picnic table, and you're about 25' from the water. And the people are super...

The room they originally gave us was refurbished. However, the back door was moldly, and the room wreaked of toxic cleaning chemicals. The owner was very apologetic and accommodating by giving us another room quickly in the older section. Just don't expect much and you'll be fine. The room featured thin pillows, thin towels, a stained shower floor and bathroom...

We had a great get-a-away without cell phone service(the best thing ever)!!!! The new owners have really cleaned the place up nicely! Clean rooms and linens. If you have forgotten anything they also have a well stocked store. You are right next to the beautiful Tellico River with awesome trout fishing!

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Green Cove. The room was very clean and just enough room for the 2 of us. Tubby, the manager made us feel right at home and was very accommodating with anything we needed and questions we asked about the area. It was very peaceful and quiet, the babbling river off the...

We visit often and always find our room well prepared and clean. The trout stream just outside the window make for a great restful sleep. We always have a campfire along side the lodge and relax the evenings away. Tubby and family are gracious hosts and pasy attention to all details and requests. The store is always well stocked with...

Totally updated from previous owners. Don't base your decisions on anything rated before 2014. New ownership since then. It's very rustic; not shiny and new, but it is clean and friendly. Worth the money. The store has everything you need and they make you feel like family.
