My first visit after hearing about it for years. Sorry I waited so long. The atmosphere is wonderful, the staff and guests were so friendly and the food was outstanding. A wonderful experience and I've already made reservations to go again. Fabulous.

This was one of the best meal experiences I've had! It wasn't just the meal, it was the ambiance and the company, and the cozy setting. It was like having a group of strangers gather around for a big Sunday dinner at my Grandma's house, and leave feeling almost like family. It was so relaxing and laid back to pass... More

Smoky Shadows Lodge is a hidden gem high over Maggie Valley, NC.The lounge and dining room are large and rustic. The guest rooms are comfortable. Each has a private bathroom and some provide scenic views of the magnificant Smokies in the Southern Appalachian range. But even if you don't overnight there, do yourself a favor and arrange to be there... More

Ginger, Tracy and staff prepared and hosted a remarkable Easter dinner for what became a party of 20 of our family members and friends. My wife... More
