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

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.

Nice open layout of the property. Two things though, the grill needs to be open later and the property WiFi was not very good. I stayed 1 night in a cabin and 2 nights in the resort and I was unable to connect in either place. Without cell service in this area this is the only communication I had with family back home. My wife was trying to get a hold of me and could not reach me, I would expect better WiFi in a resort in 2019.

Hidden Gem especially for New Years Eve
It was a last minute planned New Years trip. The price especially for New Years Eve was affordable. Enjoyed the restaurant, the Aaron Tracy band, and accommodations. The manager Sarah of the restaurant was fabulous.
