Great Hotel for the Price

Posted Nov 10, 2017
Pros: I liked the uniqueness and the cleanliness of the hotel rooms.
Location: On site, there were multiple things to do. The shopping in the lodge store was great with locally-made products.
All hotels in the area we were going were booked & we were tired. Using my smart phone, I checked Expedia for hotels and found the Smokehouse Lodge and Cabins. Expedia said it was the last room available, so I booked immediately. We arrived and found that it truly was the last room. It was a lovely room, clean and comfortable. The A/C worked well, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom clean. We had arrived after dark, and in the morning as we looked around, we were very pleased with the grounds. We would love to return for more than just one night! It was a unique lodging experience in that it wasn't just a hotel - there were things to do there - cart racing, shopping, etc. We will definitely be back.

Very nice Hotel and Restaurant combined.

Posted Nov 2, 2017
Pros: The staff, the food, the area and all around "Country" motif.
Cons: Provide microwave.
Location: Sewanee, Lynchburg, and mountain scenery.
We stay at this hotel occasionally for a weekend get-away and the good "Country" cooking. We love the area and use this location as a base for day trips to the surrounding cities and attractions. I would recommend this to anyone.

Good for the price

Posted Nov 2, 2017
Hotel is cute from the outside, but rooms could use a deep clean around baseboards , corners etc. Has wood floors which is nice because carpet in hotels creeps me out, but they could use a wet mop all the ways into the corners and around edges. Bathroom could also use a deep clean. Not dirty enough to make me want to leave, but enough that it should be brought to attention of the manager.

Clean, quiet, convenient. Loved the hardwood flooring. Bathroom could use an update, but it's no concern when it's just a day or two. We plan on staying again

Beautiful rustic lodgings

Posted Oct 23, 2017
This was a great place to stay!! The outside is beautiful and rustic, the lobby as well and very inviting. The rooms were done with rustic accents, but clean and modern as well. I love the hardwood floors in the rooms. It is very pet friendly, with only a very small pet fee, which is refreshing. I was able to bring my dogs to have fun with me as well. The rooms were clean, and there was no pet hair or odor in the room, so they clearly do a great job cleaning. The hardwood floors help with that I'm sure.the bathroom was clean and nice, the hot water, internet and TV was great. The view was very nice, they have a large grassy area behind the lodge with activities for kids, benches and swings. The restaurant was delicious, the trading post had great items. It was all very inviting and relaxing, and a great price for the stay. High recommend!! A great area as well, with a lot of hiking and fun outdoor activities.

Close to The University.

Posted Oct 9, 2017
The Smokehouse was a comfortable stay. Unfortunately not a lot to choose from when visiting my Sewanee student so we picked this one. The restaurant is good southern food, staff is nice but the place could really use some TLC. Our room was clean enough and I loved the view but parts of the porch were being held up with tape and some of the boards were very loose. I just kept feeling it was such a shame because there is such potential with this hotel.

The floor was dirty, it smelled, and there was even an empty beer bottle in the corner that the cleaning crew missed.

Lots of Potential

Posted Aug 26, 2017
The room appeared clean at first. After showering I noticed mold patches on the baseboards in the bathroom and they were dirty as well. There was a fruit fly problem around the sink that was frustrating. We noticed dirt and dust underneath the beds and behind a chair and holes in the bedspread and curtain. Looked like moth holes and cigarette burns. We were going to take a swim but there was a film on the top of the pool. The grounds were very nice and the motel has tons of potential. They just need to do a better job cleaning. The manager was very nice when we mentioned the issues and credited us for one night.
