“Sunday Brunch Like Whoa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We enjoyed the mac-daddy of all brunch buffets this past Sunday. Wear your expandable pants... everything on the menu is delicious and you will go back for seconds, thirds, fourths, etc. Can't wait to come back!

“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

The Toe River Lodge was a great weekend getaway. Having purchased the Living Social deal, we stayed for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. The food was DELICIOUS. We tried the pizza, the black bean burger, and the fajita wrap, and it was all very fresh. The brewery and winery on-site offered a good selection and were really tasty - We even bought a half case of wine to take home with us! The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. As other reviewers have noted, the staff treats you like family and creates a nice, warm atmosphere to help you relax and enjoy your time. We can't wait to go back and will definitely recommend it to friends and family!

The staff is great. I would recomend the B&B or a suite. The lodge regular rooms are very small. Overall a very good experiance.

“So cozy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

My husband and I just returned from a weekend in the mountains to celebrate our anniversary. We booked our stay with the Vance Toe River Lodge, and stayed in their Mountain View cabin. It was just what we were looking for! The cabin was adorable -- clean, well equipped, warm and cozy. Quiet and secluded with a beautiful view. We loved grilling on our back deck looking out at the woods. There was also a great fire pit, but being just the two of us, we didn't take advantage of it. Our package came with a wine tasting, bottle of wine, and breakfast both mornings. The food served at the lodge was amazing! And definitely check out their new Blind Squirrel Brewery - those guys really know their stuff. All in all, we had a great experience with Vance Toe River Lodge and would not hesitate to stay there again or send our friends.

“Very relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

The trip was a Mother's Day gift, and a great one at that!! Very relaxing two night stay. All of the staff is friendly & helpful. Breakfast was really good, the breads were "Deliciosos". The wine was also very good.
The colors in the high country are beautiful this time of year. The other couples staying at the lodge were very nice and also friendly. It is a bit remote, but a great place to decompress. Our thanks to all the staff involved and to our kids Marylin & Jonathan for the gift!!!!
