Reviewed March 20, 2014

Located between Bryson City and Cherokee, it is a great location at the southern side of the Smokies. The owners were very nice and take great care of the property. The rooms are pretty dated but include a decent TV, good Wi-fi, coffe maker, fridge, and a toaster oven. I opted for the riverside room. The price is a bit high considering the room quality but heck, location, location, location. There is welcoming covered fire pit on the riverbank that the owners do a great job of tending in the evenings. Plenty of eatery places within 15 minutes. Good stay overall. I stayed here in mid march and traffic to and in Gatlinburg was heavy on 441. I can't imagine what it's like in the peak months. BTW. My new Garmin GPS got me lost finding it.

Room Tip: Pay the extra few bucks on a riverside room,

We were visiting Bryson city for the Polar Express. Two Rivers Lodge is very convenient to downtown. Owners are very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay here again on future trips to the area.

BLAIN & KATHY could not have been better hosts. Perfect for groups or individuals. Great location, motorcycle friendly. Everything I needed for a great weekend. Will definitely return again. Blain actually lead our group on a nice motorcycle ride. His local knowledge of the area allowed us to go to places we would not have found on our own.

This was our third time staying at Two Rivers in 5 months. We love it so much we can't stay away! We love the fact that our two dogs are welcomed just like we are. You couldn't ask for better hosts than Blain and Kathy. They are so friendly and outgoing. I can't wait to get back again! The stress just falls away and you relax by the campfire and the sound of the river!

Okay I have been here like twice now within a 6 month period of time!! These guys are the best...I feel like blain is more of a brother than a proprietor! He and his wife Cathy are truly family oriented folks! Great Lodge for the entire family! Great location!! I had the pure pleasure of taking a group of about 18 people to stay here...not a single complaint!!! All rooms were nice and clean. Blain knows his area and can take YOUR bike group on some awesome roads!! They go outta their way above and beyond to make sure your stay is one that STAYS with you for times to come!!

I WILL BE GOING BACK AGAIN!!! Be looking for my call guys!!

We stayed at Two Rivers last week for 3 nights. Blain and Kathy were great hosts. We had our small dog with us and they are def pet friendly. They are quick to give you and travel or sightseeing advice you need.

The rooms are clean and have plenty of space. They had a campfire by the river each night and we roasted marshmallows and hot dogs. Good luck finding a chain hotel doing that! Your only about 10 mins to Bryson City with restaurants and grocery stores.

Dont miss the quiet side of the Smokies and Two Rivers Lodge!

I was just there at Two Rovers Lodge. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. We stayed in a room on the river. Very Nice. Sheldon is very nice and helpful. Sheldon was cutting the grass and we had a question about where to go; he was very helpful and full of information. Great place to stay.
