We spent last weekend at Ramada Inn, The Lodge on Lake Chatuge, and were pleasantly surprised. I am not a fan of Ramada Inns, but we choose the Inn because it is a short walk to the GA Mountain Fairgrounds, our reason for going to Hiawassee. The rooms were very clean, spacious, the linens were snow white and soft, (we love extra pillows and each bed had 4 huge pillows) and every room has a balcony with a view of Lake Chatuge, the Mountains or both. The complimentary continentaly breakfast offerred much more than we expected. Although, not "home cooked", it was more than ample...fresh fruit, assorted bagels, toast and muffins, cream cheese, jellies, several varieties of packaged grits and oatmeals, 6 different cereals, and hot items, i.e. Biscuits and Gravy one day and sausage and pancakes another. They even had flavored creamers for coffee...big plus since I only like coffee with a flavored creamer. It was a busy weekend, but the staff continuoulsy made fresh coffee and kept the area very clean and stocked. The Inn has many features we did not have time to enjoy, a beach area, playground, and onsite Steakhouse. We definitely plan to stay there again next year while attending the GA Mountain Fair, but plan to extend our say so we can enjoy more time on the Lake and at the Inn. BTW, I would highly recommend going when the GA Fairground is hosting an event...Awseome local Craftsmen, Local Vendors and Great Food....BBQ, Fried Green tomatoes, homemande Ice Cream and Candy, Roasted Corn, Sweet Potatoes, baked or fried and lots of local specialties.
The Music Hall is Huge, comfortable, Air Conditioned and you can bring in food from the vendors to enjoy while you enjoy the Show. We came to see Larkin Poe, but we were thrilled with many other great performances, The Waybacks, Roy Clark, Clare Lynch and Highway 18...to name a few.
