The buildings are authentic and are not new so it explains the spartan comfort. It's not for people who are interested in comfort and luxury but for those who prefer... More

This was one of the best meal experiences I've had! It wasn't just the meal, it was the ambiance and the company, and the cozy setting. It was like having a group of strangers gather around for a big Sunday dinner at my Grandma's house, and leave feeling almost like family. It was so relaxing and laid back to pass... More

Smoky Shadows Lodge is a hidden gem high over Maggie Valley, NC.The lounge and dining room are large and rustic. The guest rooms are comfortable. Each has a private bathroom and some provide scenic views of the magnificant Smokies in the Southern Appalachian range. But even if you don't overnight there, do yourself a favor and arrange to be there... More

My wife and I + 2 dogs lodged comfortably in one of two SSL cabins on Easter weekend. Owners Ginger & Bud and their daughter Tracy could not have been more helpful and friendly. Ginger, Tracy and staff prepared and hosted a remarkable Easter dinner for what became a party of 20 of our family members and friends. My wife... More

We have enjoyed several meals there. It is a bit pricey, however the food is good, atmosphere is great and service is great. So if you are in the area and want to splurge a little it is a great place to treat your loved one.
