Like many others, I stayed here for 3 nights on a recent motorcycle trip to explore the area. I chose The Lodge based on other reviews, but I have to say it exceeded my expectations.The room was large and very, very clean and my bed was very comfortable. There were no drawers to put my clothes, but plenty of hangers, and I wasn't inconvenienced at all by it. Walt and Anna were very friendly and hospitable, even offering to go to town to pick up supper for all the motorcyclist guests because that night it was storming. It's just a short distance to "downtown" Tellico Plains and its stores and restaurants. The grounds are immaculate. With 3 different room types to choose from at very reasonable rates, this place can't be beat. Thanks again for your friendliness and hospitality. I'll be back soon.
