Very friendly and helpful staff. Honestly, felt like I was talking with family. Great location, as well....so why the not great rating?? Facilities are old, not maintained as well as they could be. Dated rooms that don't "feel" as clean as they should. Again, the staff's friendliness and helpfulness are wonderful...just need to update the facilities!

We stayed here just one night. Clean room. No issues. Prices were affordable. Super close for any concert at Anderson Music Hall! Easier to walk from motel than drive and park at the venue! On the lake with nice views. Close enough to the restaurant Hawg Wild BBQ to walk.

We made two four-day stays here while visiting family in the area. the decor is basic wood, very appropriate for the outstanding views over the lake and surrounding mountains. Our room did not have a refrigerator or microwave. All rooms have a balcony or patio; the view is better from rooms on the east side. Staff is very "down home'...

Thank you for your wonderful review. I am glad that you were able to spend so many days here. I'm sorry that the wifi was "laggy" so I will have this looked at.

If you're looking for peace and quiet with great views, this is the place. Some reviews have noted the lodge as being outdated but we found it a bit of a throwback, and amazingly charming. Yes the balcony seats are plastic.....so what. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. We will stay there again for sure !

We were on our 50th wedding anniversary trip. We have stayed at the Lake Chatuge Lodge many times and have always been pleased. They had added the free breakfast when we went this time.

We had a very pleasant experience at the Lake Chatuge Lodge. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable.

Thank you for your great review. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. Our hotel does offer great views of Lake Chatuge and the surrounding mountains.

This business uses their location and cozy lobby to carry the weight of everyone's stay, however once in your room you will be sorely disappointed.
