Thanks to the article in Southern Living magazine - we found this lodge! It is so beautiful! And clean! We especially loved the outdoor rocking chairs, free morning coffee in the lobby, and the indoor pool. Our room was spacious with a desk and 2 queens. We didn't have a balcony, but all the rooms face the valley. The view is great. And the staff was friendly. We had a little mishap on the trail, and their gift shop didn't sell antibotic cream, so when I asked the front desk about where to buy some, they just gave me some from their first aid kit.
The food was great too. The catfish dinner is so large - you can split it with another! It is a dry county - so we had to get a membership to have wine at dinner. Although, take a jacket to dinner - it was freezing in there!
Oh, and if you are craving Starbucks cold coffee - they sell it in the vending machines at the lodge and visitor center.
We had a great time going through the visitor center and learning new things about the area!
And the Signal Hill hike is easy! Only 1 mile.
The cabins looked fantastic! But before booking a cabin - be sure and ask about prioximity to the generators. 2 of the cabins looked like they were near the lodge's generators. It could be noisy.
