SO glad we stayed at the resort! Rooms were nice, free coffee and ice water, cookies in lobby with FP, open view, WiFi. The natural surroundings, beauty, peacefulness, cleanliness, and pools made it our destination in the coming summer also!

Just lots of little things they didn't provide or do that leaves you disappointed. things like no extra pillows in the room. we stayed in a hotel room one night and a cabin for two nights but we had to check out and then check back in because they couldn't figure...

It is a MUST to stop at Fontana Village and absolutely the PitStop!!! Just a few miles off of the Dragon it returns you to the peace and beauty of the Nantahala National Forest. Our regular bicycle ride takes us from the Foothills Parkway to the PitStop as a turn around and it is the pinnacle of our ride. Friendly... More

Thank you for your review.

This is a complete resort. It combines a lodge with cabins and you can rent them or do a timeshare trade into some. It is supported by great staff, can handle group events and there is much to do in the resort and area.
