Walking into the Fontana Village Resort office/lobby almost took my breath away by it’s beauty, warmth, and color. I stepped down into an area where a large, blazing fire was surrounded by soft leather couches and behind me was a ceiling high Christmas tree decorated with gold, silver, red ornaments, bows, garland, beads, and bows. I was transported into the...

This place is wonderful. It is older and they are updating the cabins. We like it because they allow pets. We have done a family reunion and then our sons wedding.

SO glad we stayed at the resort! Rooms were nice, free coffee and ice water, cookies in lobby with FP, open view, WiFi. The natural surroundings, beauty, peacefulness, cleanliness, and pools made it our destination in the coming summer also!

My wife and I were visiting the Fontana Village Resort where she had spent many days in her early childhood. We ate a late lunch at the Lodge restaurant, and didn't really know what to expect.

It is a MUST to stop at Fontana Village and absolutely the PitStop!!! Just a few miles off of the Dragon it returns you to the peace and beauty of the Nantahala National Forest. Our regular bicycle ride takes us from the Foothills Parkway to the PitStop as a turn around and it is the pinnacle of our ride. Friendly...

First, the area is gorgeous and ruggedly well taken care of. I loved so much of the venue for a wedding last weekend.

Thank you for your review. At a property where individual cabins are owned by private owners and furnished with their private things, or a property like an Air BNB listing, individual owners may opt to leave foil or plastic bags that may not be truly sanitary to leave for a next guest.
