Nothing looks any different at Graves Mountain Lodge when we started coming here on our honeymoon 32 years ago. That's both good and bad. The view is exquisite from both of the lodges. The people couldn't possible be any friendlier or more helpful. You feel at home from the moment you check in. The rooms are clean but they look just like they did when we came 32 years ago. The Ridge Crest rooms have no t.v., which is fine, but the lighting is so dim that it is almost impossible to read. The rooms are all wood paneled which only makes them seem even darker. I think it's time for an update. All rooms come with the American Meal Plan and the meals are down home, delicious, plentiful and served family style. I think they have become more bland in the last few years - with both less salt and sugar, and nothing else taking their place. Overall, it is still a great deal and we would definitely return.
