The Fontana Village Lodge was a wonderful re-discovery! I had been there years (and years) ago, but this visit was a revelation. With a number of different accommodation options, it's a terrific place for families to spend time together. The only problem was, our visit was too short to enjoy everything as much as we would have liked! First, you're...

In summer when the lake is full you can take a tour on a pontoon to places of interest. Look around the at the Fontana Dam. The TVA has an interesting exhibit. When you...

The staff at Fontana Village Resort really do go above and beyond. Ashley in particular is super personable and went out of her way to make sure that I had a great birthday. I had missed the viewing of "Elf" the night before, so she went ahead and put it on in the lounge for me. Also, one of the...

Walking into the Fontana Village Resort office/lobby almost took my breath away by it’s beauty, warmth, and color. I stepped down into an area where a large, blazing fire was surrounded by soft leather couches and behind me was a ceiling high Christmas tree decorated with gold, silver, red ornaments, bows, garland, beads, and bows. I was transported into the...
