Any time I am near Bryson City, I stay at Two Rivers Lodge. Blain and Kathy always welcome me. It is older and 'rustic' but it is clean and has everything I need. It is a beautiful area on the river and they work hard to keep it nice for their customers. I love that rooms have the fridge, microwave,...

The environment was clean, staff was very friendly and it was very close to downtown without being in downtown. The only drawback was the number of smokers that were staying at the lodge. Most just sat outside of their rooms smoking, which was some what uncomfortable for us. They do have a nice size pool and outdoor fire pit, which...

I am sorry that I cannot force people to be courteous and considerate of others comfort or health. I find that most are considerate but there are exceptions. With more than seven acres here there is room for everyone. Our favorite place is the river too. Thanks.

This was the fourth time here and could not have asked for better hospitality. We stayed in a cabin this time and would recommend this place over all. We will be back this winter. Thanks kids and adults loved it

This was a great place to get out of the hustle and bustle of town. They have a lovely outdoor fire pit right next to the river. Family friendly pool with a place for kids. Fridge, microwave, flat screen tv, and outdoor seating. Loved it!

Close enough to be convenient and far enough to be quiet. That's how we describe our proximity to Cherokee and Bryson City. Thanks for the review.

Blain and Cathy, the owners, are wonderful folks. I found them to be helpful and friendly. Helped us get our motorcycle loaded into a 15ft truck to get it back home after a mechanical failure. I was over joyed at my stay. Always firewood in rear of property to enjoy a fire, pool is clean and well kept, rooms very...

Immaculate, accommodating, relaxing, comfortable. Owners are friendly and informative. Quiet, peaceful area. Short (maybe 5-10 minutes), direct drive to Bryson City. Pool is pristine. The swings, the nightly fire under the pavilion, the swings, and the barbeque pits make this a great family or couples place a convenient and comfortable to stay in at night and cookout! However, plenty dine-in...

I agree. I considered an outdoor wash area but it's just too cold in the winter here. Eventually maybe we'll do well enough to have a meeting room and guest laundry with scrub sink.

We just stayed there last weekend with our 3 teenagers to go river tubing for the first time. We rented one of the cottages. It was totally worth the money for all the kids to have bedrooms and not all be crammed in one small motel room. The beds were comfortable to all of us. Using the full kitchen saved...

On our way back from Lynchburg Tennessee and decided to stop for the night. I've read all the positive reviews and have to admit this is a very very well managed place.

Travelling with my sister, we turned up at this motel after reading reviews on tripadvisor. Be aware that most GPS tell you that you have arrived at your destination about 1 mile before you actually arrive! (From Cherokee direction) We booked one of the cabins as they have laundry facilities. The lady was very helpful when we checked in, and...

Thanks. We have actually been fighting with TomTom about their positioning of us for 8 years to no avail. Just use Google maps. It's more accurate and it's free on your smort phone.
