In September I was many of hundreds of cloggers who attended a clogging workshop. The resort was beautiful and the staff was friendly. The only thing that was a problem were the steps leading down to the Wildwood Grill. There is a stone path and concrete steps that were difficult to navigate at night due to lack of lighting. We used the flashlights on our cellphones to light the way. This is a safety issue. Adding lights to these areas would definitely make it easier to navigate. Other than that issue, this resort is a great place for a workshop and to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery! We highly recommend it.

Spent a long weekend in one of their 3 bedroom cabins with friends. The four of us really enjoyed Fontana Village. The cabin was just fine. It wasn't fancy, but provided a perfect weekend getaway. The beds were very comfortable. The area is beautiful with lots of hiking experiences. We ate dinner one night in the lodge, and the four of us had a wonderful meal. I would highly recommend Fontana Village.

Thank you for your review! Fontana Village boasts almost 20 miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, and is adjacent to several long distance and regional trail systems in the GSMNP and Nantahala National Forest. We are certainly a great base camp for many day or longer hikes.

Gorgeous setting well off the beaten path. They have so many things to do. You will not have cell service out here, so kick back and enjoy nature, it will be waiting for you when you get back to civilization.

Just an outstanding Inn in the Mountains of NC. You will not be disappointed. Lots of things to do outdoors. The Inn has plenty of rooms and a nice restaurant with a wrap around deck. Staff does Some-ores over a wood fireplace in the evenings.

Room Tip: Rooms in he woods.

Cabins need a desperate makeover.Dirty,musty and damp.Lack of utensils,plans not even kitchen towels or a potholder.No icemaker because it broke and pulled out.Surface stove light burned out.Showers are old and faucets broke in shower.Bed linens old and thin.Windows filthy and screens ripped or missing. No way you could open windows for fresh air.Carpets torn in both bedrooms.Such a terrible experience we left three days early. Icould go on but my friends where expecting a fun mountain retreat and we ended up leaving!! Oh had a hard time getting in because doorknob and lock was broken.This resort needs a massive remodel. Never again at this resort!!
