I have been meaning to write this review for the last two years because we have stayed at Arrowhead Resort twice after traveling by boat from Fort Loudon Lake. It is about a six hour river trip and we do it during leaf season to enjoy the spectacular views East Tennessee has to offer along the way. Last year we saw two Bald Eagles en route. Our destination, Arrowhead Resort, always seems like being welcomed home.
We travel with our dogs (three of them) and Arrowhead is a dog friendly place, providing you respect the leash rules and control your pets, which we do. Our dogs love it there and so do we. The marina is sweet and easily accessible, easy to find by GPS or map. And, it is load in and load out as the resort can provide you with a golf cart if you overpack like we generally do.
The rooms are clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed. We bring snacks and our own beverages, but we generally eat dinner and breakfast at the marina restaurant which is really quite tasty. The breakfasts are particularly yummy and stay with you for a long trip on the river and the prices are very reasonable.
This is a family oriented business and is generally quiet and peaceful. We always sleep well and feel rested when we begin our journey back up the river. Arrowhead is a wonderful little jewel. It isn't fancy, but if you are looking for basic comfort and cleanliness and a beautiful spot on Watts Bar Lake, you can't go wrong here.
