My family and I recently rented out almost the entire Nantahala Village for my son's wedding, which was actually held at Mystic Lands, not at the Village. Seriously, I think only one other guest was in the Village!
We had been communicating with the Village for more than a year, and had gone through the ups and downs with the previous management. We had visited several times, and felt, like some of the other reviewers, it was run down. Yes, we had read all the bad reviews, but the new owners and managers seemed so intent on making a new name, a good name for the Village, that we decided to book it.
GREAT CHOICE on our part! Kate and her crew did EVERYTHING they could to make our experience the best! The cabins were clean, well maintained - even the older ones, and there is a lot of work in progress, like the landscaping for example. They even created a firepit for a huge bonfire for us to have a get together and do s'mores the night most people were coming in.
The Bridesmaid Brunch was hosted at the Village Restaurant (formerly Thirteen Moons) and the view from the porch was gorgeous, but it was the food that stole the show - one of the best brunches I've ever had.
The staff never said, "No," and graciously handed out welcome bags to each of our guests.
This new management, given time, will turn this resort into THE place to stay in the area. I would not hesitate to book there again, and if I had it to do over, I'd not change a thing.
Thank you Nantahala Village and Kate for making a special time even more special!
