“Wonderful Thanksgiving Memories”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Once again we had a wonderful 4 night stay at Walt and Anna's The Lodge at Tellico Plains. Our lst trip was June, 2010, with our daughter and her family. We were so impressed with the rooms, location, beautiful grounds, service, southern hospitality...need I go on...that this will be our regular place to stay every trip we make to Tellico Plains. We arrived in the evening in the middle of a thunderstorm, and Walt and Anna were right there to greet us and make us feel welcome...even put together a snack basket for us to eat that evening. They now offer a free continental breakfast, and have a gift shop. Thanksgiving morning Anna had the restaurant area decorated so beautifully for Thanksgiving, and made us feel just like family as we ate and reminisced about our previous visit. Walt and Anna truly represent southern hospitality at it's best.

Room Tip: Basic room does not have the extra twin bed or spa tub in main room.

We travel a lot and we have never had a room with the tub in the main room. There was also a twin bed at the foot of the queen bed so to get to the queen bed you had to dodge the shelf that housed the clothes hooks. They had a coffee pot but no where to sit in the room with the coffee unless you sat on the bed. The towels were in the room with the tub and no where to put them by the shower. Just my thoughts.

Room Tip: Only saw one room and did not like it - but it was very clean.

We reserved a room at the Lodge based on Trip Advisor reviews and were certainly not disappointed! Walt's place is indeed a dream, especially under the beautiful autumn leaves. The grounds and rooms are very clean and welcoming. There was even a quilt on the bed (I'm a quilter).

We spent Thanksgiving night in one of Walt's super clean rustic decor cabins. The view is great, the grounds very nice, the outside shelter with grills and firepit is super, and Walt is very accommodating. This is most definitely a place for relaxation! And, fairly priced too.

My wife and I have been to this little hideaway 5 times over the past several years and never fail to be overwhelmed. Walt, his lady and his boxer "Rambo" are incredibly gracious hosts and they have built an absolute dream of a lodge. We've been lucky enough to stay in the same room each time, enough to think of it as "our place" and wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else. The rooms are absolutely wonderful, the scenery is unbelievable and Walt's BBQ is fantastic. I will say that we preferred the full menu that the restaurant used to have but hey, what he does have now for breakfast and dinner is plenty scrumptious.

My wife and I take several road trips a year and The Lodge at Tellico is by far our favorite. It's really cool to say that something we found by accident on a trip to the Cherohala Skyway and the Tail of the Dragon is now an annual pilgrimage. Thanks, Walt!

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with any of them!

The owner here has done a spectacular job in designing a wonderful little lodge in the foothills of the mountains. The rooms are absolutely first class and reflect a lot of thought and attention to detail. As soon as you walk into your room, you feel like you've been given special treatment. The management is very welcoming and have a kind, relaxed spirit about them. They clearly enjoy what they do. If you have kids, there is a fantastic game room with all kinds of options for fun. My son had a blast. My wife and I are eager to return in the future to stay just as a couple.

Found this place last year and made it a point to return again this year. I make an annual MC trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway. Once at the end of the parkway take a short trip south and ride the Cherohola Skyway from NC to Tellico Plains, TN. At the end of the road make a left and the inn is about 3/4 mile down the road.

This is by far one of the best places I have ever stayed in. Beautiful rooms, landscaping and excellent service. If you ride in on a MC you can make use of the indoor parking for your bike. Walt's BBQ is excellent but check on his serving hours as it is not always open. They also have an outdoor fire pit, pavilion with BBQ grills and a nice indoor game room area.

Make it a point to stay here. You will be glad you did.
