Blue Ridge Parkway
The grounds and surrounding area were beautiful. The hotel is old and it screams refurbish me! The room reminded me of my Army barracks with the cinder block walls and the windows. The bathroom was very small and had only one towel rack. The vanity was very small and again. Needs an over haul. I’m not a snob but this place is old. Our experience was very good except for the room. It had no microwave or refrigerator. Beds were comfortable and clean linens. We had our 2 Goldendoodles with us so the ground floor room was extremely helpful. Once you get out of your room the pond/lake was very beautiful with a walking trail all the way around it. The restaurant was good with a variety of foods and the wait staff were amazing. They were so friendly and respectful. They go out of their way to make sure you are happy. The view from the dining room is beautiful as every table has a great view. The breakfast buffet was great and it had real scrambled eggs with veggies in it. Lots of fresh fruit and yogurts. The convenience to the Blue Ridge parkway was right down the road. Beautiful scenery and well groomed roads.

A cozy, comfortable stop on the BRP
The room was WONDERFUL and we especially enjoyed the deck to watch the sunset over Sharp Top. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was refreshing. The waitresses/ hostess in the dining room were terrific as well! Our only complaint is meant for the evening manager who was not friendly, welcoming, or helpful. Our shower soap was empty and when we asked for soap, he was indifferent, stated that there "was nothing he could do for us" and sent us on our way. The morning manager was VERY friendly even though we barely interacted at 7am!! Too bad... the rest of the experience was wonderful.

Nice two-day getaway
Remote and quiet. Beds are important to us, these beds are very nice. Rooms are clean, well attended and cared for. The grounds are well-maintained and beautiful. Shuttle service to local attractions is a nice touch. Local towns have good food options.

Gorgeous location and great hiking
Beautiful location. Surrounded by mountains with a gorgeous lake view. Lodge rooms were a bit "tired" but very clean. They have vaulted ceilings which give an open, airy feel. I found the bed to be a bit uncomfortable, but that's personal preference. Dining room staff were friendly and efficient, especially Nicole.

People stay here (imo) for the views of the mountains, the lake, the trails, the close food, and the spacious rooms. The beds and bathrooms have been updated. Especially if you stay when rates are lower and schools have started back, it is well worth the cost. I had breezy days of peace, exercise, and quiet contemplation. I felt like I was in paradise! I especially loved sitting on the patio, seeing the views, reading, walking, and no one/nothing bothered me. Quiet, beautiful, peaceful.
