We found this place by accident. We love it... It was our second stay with them. Our first being our honeymoon. The place is beautiful, clean, & cozy. Great place to get away from the worries of the world.

My husband and I were searching for a little getaway for our 2nd anniversary and we are so very happy we stumbled onto this place. As we work our lives away, we wanted a little peace and quiet with some things to do. We stayed in the honeymoon cabin, which was perfect. We would sit on the back porch and listen to the litte creek bubble by in the morning and night, the front porch was spacious with a beautiful set-up of the properties. The inside of the cabin had a little eat-in kitchen, livingroom w/ a fireplace, a bedroom and bathroom w/ shower and a heart-shaped hot tub. The kitchen was good enough to cook in and then sit down to have our breakfast in. The living room and bedroom was cute and rustic and as good as it needed to be for our needs. The whirlpool is a very very nice touch to these cabins. We plan on making it a annual trip as the tourist attractions are just up out alley, hiking around Blackwater Falls and Dolly Sods, horsebacking up to the top of Seneca Rock, Touring Smoke Hole Caverns. If you are looking to relax and get back to the basics and take in some beautiful scenery, we would definetly recommend Smoke Hole Resort!

Room Tip: Honeymoon cabins are perfect for all couples!

We stayed at the Log Motel, which was clean and comfortable. The drains were slow and often required plumbing (both sink and toilet). We stayed two nights. We received clean towels; however, the bed was not made and supplies (like coffee and soap) were not replenished.

The "Rules" are framed by the front door and are written with a harsh, unfriendly tone. It sort of felt like I was being punished for the bad behavior of former guests. No profanity? Damn! No alcohol? Really? And what constitutes "misconduct"? Rearranging the furniture, lighting a candle, and closing the curtains FOR SURE! The document made me feel very UNWELCOME and didn't make me feel like I want to go back again.

Excerpt from rules (this is just 1 of 22 rules): "Any disruptive behavior, alcohol, drug abuse, profanity, or misconduct of any kind will not be tolerated at any time in the cabins. All persons in the cabins will be evicted immediately with NO REFUNDS by Jerry or Janet Hedrick."

Room Tip: Motel has no cell phone service nor wireless internet access. I was told I could get both at "t...

This was a wonderful getaway for our anniversary! Beautiful, beautiful! The cabins are extremely clean and everything you need is waiting at the cabins...utensils, dishes, pots/pans, casserole dishes, baking sheets, coffee pot, stove, microwave, fridge. Just bring the food! :0) Staff is wonderful and extremely accommodating but will leave you be if you have "Do Not Disturb" on the door. ;0) Peaceful, relaxing, and romantic! Will definitely be going back next year!

This couldn't be a more perfect location. Excellent value for the price. Spotless. Word of warning, this is not handicapped accessible. Staff was courteous and friendly. Trout fishing immediately across the road. No restaurant but small snack bar in gift shop. A restaurant would greatly enhance this property as it is quite remote.

We booked a night at Smoke Hole at a "Honeymoon Cabin" for our anniversary...it was wonderful! Cabin was clean, cute,and romantic. The surrounding areas were beautiful this time of year (3rd week of Oct) as the leaves were in full peak. We are already planning on going back next year. For first time visitors...wish I would've known...have to do the dishes (bring paper plates if you don't want to do dishes, although dishes and soap are provided), no restaurants are close so bring food; soap, shampoo, and bubble bath are provided (website doesn't say they are), there is a microwave, and coffee is provided. Great place!!

Room was clean. The only amenity they offered was toilet paper and tissues. Had to ask for hair dryer. AC and HEAT controlled from the lobby. Seriously. Absolutely NO insulation in walls. Can hear every conversation and TV in room next door, Made for really rough sleep. Could hear every logging and cement truck all night. Notes in room " do not take blankets out of room. Maids count blankets everyday and we will charge you for the blanket. Absolutely no visitors. " Not a friendly environment. Receptionist in lobby unfriendly.
Restaurants open for dinner at least 20 minutes away. CLose at 7 pm. Most restaurants in area are closed on Mondays.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere
