“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Quiet, clean- we stayed in the King Suite and felt like we were in a luxury condo.
We will definately be back!
Best kept secret in the mountains!
Lots of restaurants in the area and the staff was great!

Well maintained, friendly staff, American, family owned for 3 generations. Comfortable room with fridge and microwave. Fantastic shower. Near many of western NC/Tn most beautiful locations. Were willing to work with me if I needed a "late" checkout.

Room Tip: Currently on "Queen Deluxe" rooms have A/C, as it says in brochure, but with the cool June...

We rented the apt upstairs. When we walked in we were totally shocked! It was beautiful! Very clean! Had more than what we were expecting. The beds are very comfortable! New appliances, very cold frige too! My whole family was there, 2 children, my daughter, son-in-law, and son. The Jacuzzi was awesome! We each got to use it, and "never" ran out of hot water! When we needed more towels, they got them right away.
We love Newland, NC, we will be back in August and we will stay at "The Shady Lawn Lodge" again!
My mother-in-law remembered it from more than 20 years ago and she even liked it too! Her and Pop used to stay there when they were in town.
Thank you Shady Lawn Lodge, you made our stay away from home, worth the trip.
God Bless ya'll!

Room Tip: If you have a large group, the apt has two queen beds, and an open out couch.

We had our first overnight trip with our 6 month old. We had a standard king room. It was nice and clean and there was plenty of room to set up the pack n' play for the baby. Would stay here again for sure!

I probably have a more educated perspective than most as I lived in Avery County for 10 years before a change in my life forced me to move away. I knew what the Lodge looked like before it was completely redone.

Justin and Brittany Ray had a huge task to remodel the Shady Lawn Lodge and did a wonderful job. An attentive staff,clean nice sized rooms,reasonable price, Nicely decorated Lobby and Rooms. Good job!

I started coming to Avery County as a leaf looker and will do so again until I can return permantly. The Shady Lawn Lodge is on my list as "the" place to stay in Avery County.

This was our second stay here at Shady Lawn Lodge and it was as good as the first! This is a great place to stay when visiting the NC mountains. The room is clean and nicely appointed and updated, the staff is friendly and welcoming. It's convenient to the fun resort towns, hiking, skiing, and of course, sightseeing! You'll love it and of course, we'll be back again!
