This place is at the end of the Cherohala Skyway which is a wonderful drive with lots of overviews and hiking opportunities. It is also at the entrance of the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest which also offers a nice hike. The lodge is on a mountain that overlooks the valley and additional mountains from the back porch with lots of rocking chairs. Several fireplaces in the lodge and dining room/bar add to the cozy, relaxing atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area and helped us plan what to do during our stay. Then there is the food which was absolutely amazing!! You have several choices for each meal and we were never disappointed. They have rooms in the lodge and several larger rooms in cabins close by the main lodge. Can't wait to return to this fabulous place!!
