weekend with the dragon

Great family vacation spot

The service people were very helpful and the accommodations were comfortable. The rooms could use some updating but the area outweigh the average condition of the rooms. Having the Fontana Lake available with pontoon boats was a real plus

  • Liked: Staff & service, amenities

The area is beautiful, and the pools were nice. The rooms were comfortable and cleanish. Having putt-putt golf and frisbee golf and scheduled activities was nice. You can’t beat $1 kids scoop at the ice creAm place. Be sure to check out the dam. The property shows some wear. For multi-night visitors, if you want your bed made, be sure not to leave *anything* on the bed. I poured coffee down the sink one day, and the dried coffee splatter remained in the sink after “cleaning.” They will not make it. They weren’t too concerned when I pointed out there were no towels at the pool, suggesting I walk over to another office to let them know. (It was only a 3-4 minute walk, but they didn’t offer to call.) The food got a bit tiresome after a short while, and it’s a bit far to go for a change. The general store was very limited on food items. That said, we definitely recommend checking out Bryson City and the Oconaluftee Indian Village in Cherokee, which make good excuses to eat elsewhere. We’d stay again, but would figure out the food issue ahead of time.
