The Lodge at Gorham's Bluff
Ranked #1 of 1 Pisgah B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 4, 2009

My husband and I visited September 10 -13, 2009. We did not know anyone who had stayed at the Lodge, but the pictures and the location (an easy drive from Birmingham, Chattanooga, Huntsville, or Atlanta) made us choose it for a long weekend. It exceeded our expectations, and we will be back. First, the scenery there is phenomenal. If you did nothing but sit and look out over the view, you'd probably come home feeling like a different person. But the Lodge doesn't just rest on the views. The rooms are clean, with beautiful stone work, big fireplaces, and Bose sound systems already playing soothing music when you arrive. No TV! It is quiet, serene, and the beds are extremely comfortable (we tried to buy the mattress). Breakfast is a big meal at the Lodge, and very delicious. Also, they have coffee in the hall waiting for you when you wake up and pull on your robe. Perfect. Lunch was adequate, a large step better than most sandwiches you get (and please, do not skip the cookie). But, I have saved the best for last. Dinner at Gorham's Bluff is an experience all to itself. The dining room is small, cozy, usually quiet, and the total opposite of the chain restaurants most of us are used to at home. My husband and I agreed we had our best meal in a long time (possibly ever) when we enjoyed the chef's table option. For those of us used to expansive wine lists, be forewarned that Gorham's Bluff does not serve alcohol. Please do not consider this a negative though! We brought several bottles of our favorites, purchased from a wine store, and the Lodge will cork and serve them (or provide you glasses for your room) for free. We ended up enjoying high quality wine and mixed drinks at a fraction of what it would have cost to order at a typical restaurant.

All in all, this place is a gem. We will be back.

I attended a business retreat at Gorham's Bluff and the accomodations were lovely and spacious, the views were incredible and the food was some of the best I have had at any 5 star Resort. I highly recommend this as a great weekend getaway, would be very romantic. In the case of having a business meeting there, that was wonderful as well!

Although we only spent one night at the lodge, we had a wonderful, relaxing stay. My wife rated the view from the room the best we have ever had, topping even a room overlooking Niagara Falls. The people were friendly and the food was great. We wish we had been able to stay longer, and plan to return and to send others.

We spent 2 nights over the Memorial Day weekend. The Claire Lynch concert at the hall on the lodge property was fantastic. The food in the lodge was delicious. The room was very nice(you must be able to climb stairs). Very pleasant staff and owner. One small quibble: if you like early AM coffee bring your own because none is available before 7 AM. Overall, a beautiful and relaxing place. A fun side trip was to the Henager Drive-In, about 20 minutes away.

I just spent three absolutely amazing days at this hidden gem of a resort in Northern Alabama! The staff were extremely attentive - whatever our group needed, was provided almost instantaneously! The cottages in which we stayed were absolutely quaint and all extremely different - something for everyone's taste. The food was amazing - each meal was more delightful than the last! The views were breathtaking, the walks each morning were all different and provided for fun and interesting workouts. I would recommend this property time and again!

The team bent over backwards to make our group feel welcome and comfortable. The food was INCREDIBLE - every meal better than the last. Accomodations were wonderful. I've never felt such soft towels in my life! Great place to get away for a meeting and I can't wait to go back with family.

Our association board of directors just spent three amazing days at Gorham's Bluff. Even though our event was just after two major events we found the facilities pristine. The staff took care of our every need and were extremely flexible with our schedule changes. Chef impressed us at every turn! As we are all in the meetings and events industry, it is a tough crowd to please. We walked away with nothing but positive comments. This is the perfect location for a small meeting where you need to get things done. It's quiet, remote and beautiful for when you have some down time.

Several of our members were planning return visits with their spouses and families as we were departing. Amazing views, wonderful staff and fantastic accommodations.
