I cant say enough about this place! We will def return to The Lodge. The rooms are great, the gounds well maintained and the price is right. The location is just a mile or so from the Cherohala Skyway. As a biker, I wanted close to there. While in Tellico make sure you go to Tellico Grains Bakery or Kats Deli for grub (both have amazing food). Before (or after) your ride, drop by the Charles Hall Museum. That place is amazing! You could spend hours. The admission is free the gift shop inside one of the museums (there are 2) is nice and probably the best place I found for a souvenir for Tellico, Skyway, and to be honest not even the stores on the Dragon have better shirts than they do There is another museum that has a biker gear store in it If you looking for a cup of coffee or maps they have them, shirts (the most I have ever seen in one place, leather, patches by the hundreds and a nice place to sit and rock on the porch or to just use their bathrooms. The visitor center is next door. I had been there before but seems a lot :junkier" now. Your hard pressed to find brochures for all of the cheap crap they now have for sale.
Be warned the sidewalks pretty much fold up in Tellico around 5. The restaurants are about all that is opened. Nothing better than returning from a great ride just to sit out on the deck and relax with a cold beer. The credit card (ATM 3%) charge is bs but just think ahead and bring some cash for the room. These folks know how to treat their guests. Actually, every place I went to had such friendly people. Next time you have a free weekend, take a ride to Tellico to spend the weekend. Stay at the Lodge, visit the town eateries, Museums, and stores and enjoy!

Room Tip: Bring cash or pay the 3% fee from the ATM

I am not a motorcycle fan, but my spouse is, so we decided to give this place a shot and ended up on a return visit. We were going white water rafting and wanted to stay someplace close by without having to camp. This was the place!

Simple rustic type of rooms with a basic shower and toilet. Our room (same room both times) had a mini fridge (handy), fireplace (summer, did not need it!) and spa tub (never got around to using it). The bed, tucked into a corner, was comfortable. We were allowed to bring our well behaved dog (I know, everyone says this) and she was very happy!

The setting and grounds were very well kept and nice for taking a stroll around. Breakfast, which you could include for a fee, was very good and plentiful. We were there on a weekend (Fri and Sat nights) and they apologized that it was just a basic buffet, but there was more than enough to please everyone in our party (fresh cut fruit, egg dish, bacon/sausage and biscuits).

Rocking chairs on the deck are great for wine/beer and sunset, or an early cup of coffee and the sunrise.

Next time we decide on a white water rafting trip, we'll be back!

Room Tip: Some rooms are located directly over the game room which can be a little noisy and if you prefer to head to bed early, you might want to ask for a different room. Likewise, some rooms are directly over the motorcycle garage, but we noticed that everyone was polite and rolled their bikes out of the garage before starting it up.

Our group arrived late afternoon at the Lodge at Tellico, owners were nice and welcoming to check us in. Our room was beautiful. Nice king size bed, everything was clean and well organized. A sofa and a chair were in the room for sitting. The bed was very comfortable, best night sleep I had our whole trip. Direct TV available in the rooms. Refrigerator was already cold. Our group enjoyed the fire pit outside. I didn't go in the game room, but heard that it had a lot of games to keep the kids busy, and I believe it did have some fitness equipment. Parking was limited for vehicles at the lodges itself, but there is other available parking around the lodge. There was a nice size garage for motorcycles. Breakfast was available the next morning a mini-buffet with many choices. Staff even made pancakes upon request. Breakfast was very good. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay there.

Room Tip: Good location. Highly recommend staying at The Lodge at Tellico. Prices are very good for excellent quality. If I travel to this area again I will be staying there.

Wife and I stayed at The Lodge on a motorcycle trip through the Smokies. After staying two nights the Edgewater Hotel in Gatlinburg and one night in the Quality Inn Suites in Pigeon Forge, we both agreed The Lodge was the best of our accommodations by far. Check in was easy and the proprietors were friendly and helpful when trying to find a place to eat.

The rooms were new, spacious and clean. We enjoyed sitting by the fire pit, and it provides a great place to chat with other travelers.

The breakfast was wonderful as well. Good selection and and good quality. Can't be it for $7.

Room Tip: Some rooms have basement-style motorcycle parking. Much better than having your bike covered in dew on a cold October morning.
