We were looking for something that could be rustic or upscale at the same time. Fontana Villiaage fit the description. Poolside Cabana room is the way to go for a more romantic experience. GREAT food, comfortable rooms, and the marina is just a quick drive away. We will absolutely stay here again.

We stayed at the village for 5 nights during the holidays and I was not impressed. For being off season the cabins were over priced for what was available to do at the resort, the area of the resort we were placed and the cabin itself. When they say a village it is a village, our cabin faced a parking...

Thank you for your review. We are an older property and our lodge and cabins are decorated to have a lodge feel/rustic charm. While most guests enjoy that, it is not everyone’s taste.

We stayed over the hauntober weekend while we went to the pumpkin chase on the Nantahala. We always enjoy this weekend at the village. It is a remote area so those who complain about no cell service or close restaurants probably should stay away. The main restaurant on property is excellent.
