A truly enjoyable, very laid-back, family style meal. Make reservations in advance, or they may run out of food. Food was good, country style in family large portions. Not a bad deal at all. We had a great time, enjoy the rocking chairs on the front porch, and very much love the scenery to get there. Great people all around,... More

The food here was amazing, and the people couldn't be any nicer. The owner took me on a tour of his own house! The only reason for only four stars is that the rooms are a little dated. Our room had shag carpet. But overall I would definitely recommend Graves Mountain Lodge as a great family destination!

Took the wife to Graves for a Saturday night stay. She had never been there and I haven't been in years. This place is pretty much all inclusive with 3 meals thrown in on your nightly stay. It is not cheap by any means.Graves is located in Madison County and is pretty much off the beaten trail. No cell service... More

I, personally loved this dive in little lodge. They serve you 3 square meals a day and allow dogs. It's nothing fancy but it's perfect for spending a weekend in the mountains. The rooms and showers were clean and the food was delicious. We were in the old farm house, room 7 and enjoyed our stay. I recommend being downstairs... More

Stayed in one of the motel rooms. Nothing wrong with it, nothing special. We had absolutely no cell phone service BUT we did have wifi (generally) It went out at least 3 times in the 7 evenings we were there. The motel rooms are something akin to motel 6. No coffee makers. There is coffee down in the lobby of... More

My wife and I checked into what they described as their best suite in the newer remodeled Poplar Lodge. A very nice size room, furniture old but usable, no phone but did have a TV with a VCR, and bathroom was good size. The problem was with stinkbugs. Within the first hour my wife and I collected over 100 bugs... More

Peaceful and quiet working farm in rustic mountains. Definitely not a posh resort, but a rustic mountain farm. Room was finished with logs and had no tv or phone. For a peaceful getaway it is perfect. Food is included and served family style. Trails and White Oak Canyon falls are nearby. Beautiful place that takes you back in time a... More

I have to say that this place was a real disappointment. I suppose if you live in the city and never get to see open spaces, it might be nice, but otherwise, I would pass. When we walked up the stairs to the restaurant area, we were greeted by a surly woman who said that if we didn't have reservations,... More

Had a really good time at the Apple festival. Had blue grass band playing, tons of local vendors with crafts and food. Enjoyed a funnel cake and pumpkin spice handmade donut. Plenty to eat while walking around enjoying the pretty trees. Pick your own apples was closed even though website said it was open. Plenty of apples to choose from... More

We visited as a group and had reservations, they seated us promptly. The food was good but it was a weekend so a buffet rather than family style. The food was good, prices fair and the service was good. If there was any negative the drive getting in was a long wait and I do mean a long wait to... More
