There are many different type of accommodations from standard rooms to hidden away cabins. Our "premium" room in the Spring View Lodge (at $295 per night, plus taxes) was in serious need of an...

We brought our daughter and her husband and our granddaughters. We shared a 2 bedroom lodge that overlooked the lake. With a fire crackling and Christmas lights all around, things couldn't be merrier. This place is awesome, just wish I brought all the family and friends! (Yep, I said "all the family!). It's that good😉

The location is absolutely beautiful. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We especially enjoyed the golf cart valley/cave tour...$25 per person. We did enjoy good food at the Buzzard Bar with good entertainment.However, our room was dismal. I cannot recommend the Valley View Lodge @$159 per night. The room was incredibly small, dark, smelled stale and needed a good... More

It is a family favorite anytime but especially Thanksgiving. The area is beautiful sitting on Tablerock Lake, very nice grounds with activities for all ages. Presently decorated for Christmas with wreaths, lights and and lovely greenery draped everywhere.

I visited with my husband and our toddler and baby and we absolutely loved this resort. I was worried there wouldn't be much for us to do since the kids aren't old enough to do many of the activities and it was November so some seasonal activities were closed. But this wasn't the case! There is so much to do... More

If you love the outdoors and need a quiet get away.. This is the place for you. The rustic feel and Upscale quality combine to make this a great escape for the average JOE. I recommend you rent a Boat at the Marina for at least one afternoon. 3-4 places on the grounds to eat, the price range is low... More

This place is awesome! Spent my 30th birthday here and loved every min of it! This was my first time here and I look forward to returning. We stayed in a cabin by Devil's Pool which was great because it still felt secluded but yet we were within walking distance to many of the amenities. Big Cedar is beautiful this... More

Top of rock far exceeded my golfing expectations. Dogwood canyon tram tour an absolute must but reserve ahead. The lakeside cabin was spectacular and best of... More

One of my FAVORITE vacation spots just keeps getting better and better each time we visit! Stunningly beautiful, first class resort that goes above and beyond to please their guests! Don't miss the nature trail at Top of the Rock by golf cart, Dogwood Canyon by bike or tram, and definitely don't miss seeing Clay Self in the Buzzard Bar!!... More
