This was a Loclly find for us and we booked it as a getaway for my wife's birthday. Its location in Western NC makes it easy to get get to from Atlanta and provides access to all that Western NC has to offer (30 minutes to Cherokee/Bryson City in one direction and an hour to Asheville in the other).
The staff is nice and very accommodating and the lodge does have the rustic feel of the 1950s. It truly felt more like a mountain lodge rather than a B&B. The view from the front porch is amazing on clear days and nights and its easy to loose track of the time sitting in a rocker talking with Nancy or Tish.
Breakfast was served fast and was a good portion as well. The room was nice and almost all the rooms have excellent views of the mountains.
