We (four adults, two vehicles, and two dogs) were enjoying the western mountains of North Carolina over the Columbus Day holiday. We had come down from Roan Mountain into Newland and had a battery failure. The auto parts stores were closed on Sunday so there we were, stuck. While sitting in the parking lot of the Lowes Foods trying to fix the problem several of the locals offered assistance and suggested we contact Shady Lawn for accommodations for the evening. What a pleasant experience! The staff was friendly and even offered assistance in getting the vehicle back on the road the next day. The hotel was newly renovated inside and out. The rooms were both very comfortable and nicely decorated. The bathrooms were truly perfection. Large Granite countertops with ample outlets. A tile and glass shower. A lot of pride in ownership and loving renovation has taken place. I love that it is a family business that is passing on through the generations. A huge Thank You to the wonderful folks at Shady Lawn and to the LEO's for their assistance as well. We are already planning our next adventure to the mountains and hope to stay at Shady Lawn again.
