My party of two stayed in Cheoah Cabin 3 for a couple of nights in May. It was very quiet and comfortable. It was impeccably clean and served our needs well. The only "problem" was that there was seating only for one; the other had to sit on the settee at the end of the double bed. Not a big...

We stayed one night on a road trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway and then into the Smokies. Tapoco Lodge was everything we expected- the cabins are fantastic, we enjoyed a lovely meal and a few drinks around the fire pit. The setting is beautiful and he welcome very warm.

Known so well for The Tail of the Dragon. What a wonderful piece of serenity and beauty. Great location in the Cheowah River. Terrific service, and a great Burger. Not to mention drinks while watching and hearing the river rush by.

This place was amazing. We had a cabin room with a great view of the property. The weather was not great but even that did not ruin our trip. Sitting on the porch watching the rain was very relaxing and enjoyable. We also ate at the grill. The food and service was great. We have already booked a return trip.

Great place to stay, restaurant was very good, seating with fire pits by the river was peaceful. Great getaway. Beautiful setting by the white waters of the Cheoah River. Helpful guides assisted us in locating hiking trails nearby. Cottages very quiet.

After a day of adventure, it was such a treat to fall into the easy comforts of this beautiful place. Nicely appointed cottage, comfortable bed, friendly faces and outstanding food. Will recommend this to all our friends and will book early for a return trip. I want more time to spend here!

My party of three motorcyclists stayed in Chilhowee 2 cabin for 3 nights. The cabin is like a two bedroom hotel room that shares a common wall with an adjacent duplex-type unit. No kitchen or common area. That being the case ... the cabin is super nice in every way. Jasper's fine dining exists no longer. The downstairs bar &...
