“Peace & Relaxation”
Reviewed 21 April 2012

What another great weekend at Snowbird, so peaceful and relaxing. A great way to reenergize and forget about the world. Dinner was exceptional and was complimented by some great wine. Breakfast had so many good things to choose from and we enjoyed taking our packed lunch with us for a day of hiking. The lodge and landscaping were in full bloom of Spring flowers. The lodge provided some great entertainment after dinner Saturday night. We had a special treat to hear an amazing singer songwriter named Louise Mosrie who was accompanied by Anna Denison on banjo, mandolin, and guitar. We finished the weekend by hiking to Huckleberry Knob to see the Easter Sunrise. Truly a weekend to remember. Thanks to Robert, April, Butch, Kayla and the rest of the staff.

We recently spent several days at the Snowbird Mountain Lodge near Robbinsville, NC. It is a peaceful retreat extraordinaire. The sounds of nature surround you in this Mountain top Lodge that has luxury accommodations. Lodge rooms have views of the Mountain Valleys or surrounding Mountains.

The meals are gourmet,some of the best food we have experienced. The chefs use local foods with combinations that pleasantly surprise your taste buds. Breakfast has several choices which will leave you powered up for an exciting day of hiking, exploring, relaxing, or shopping. You select your lunch items at dinner the night before and it is packed in thermal backpacks awaiting you after breakfast for your day of adventure. We enjoyed our Picnic on the lake at Juneleska while in Waynesville, NC. The General Mast store is an outdoors person dream.

The Lodge also provides kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, and many other activities on the lovely lake. The Lodge property has multiple areas for reading or just being a peace with yourself. My favorite is the large screened in pavilion with comfortable gliders, rockers, chaises, with gorgeous views of the Mountain and valleys. Can't wait for our next trip to such a peaceful place.

Room Tip: A room facing the Mountain Valley has best views....but they are all very comfortable.

I have now lost count of the number of times my husband and I have enjoyed the peaceful ambience and beauty of Snowbird Mountain Lodge.

This visit, we stayed on the second floor of the lodge, in a cozy room with a glorious mountain view. We hiked into the wilderness each day, marveling at the solitude on the trails and the incredible beauty of our surroundings. The wildflowers were exquisite this trip. Robert, the owner, always has spot-on recommendations for hikes -- with rushing streams, secluded swimming holes, magnificent views or waterfalls. We take our Snowbird-packed lunch with us to enjoy on the trail.

After hiking, we like to read or play Scrabble on the deck and wait for the afternoon cookies to come out of the oven.

Dinner is always a four-course treat -- simply delicious and with an extensive wine list to complement the meal. No trout is fresher or better than that from the SML kitchen. And, this visit, the buerre blanc sauce was an extraordinary accompaniment.

Our weather this trip was perfect for hiking. In the summer, we like to canoe on the lake and jump in to cool off. Sometimes, I wish for a rainy day in order to sit by the fire in the great room and read and sip my tea and have time for a massage.

This beautiful lodge with its helpful staff is my first choice for a romantic holiday.

Room Tip: Website clearly shows the location of the rooms. Lodge rooms are a good value, and the great room i...

My hubby & I stopped here for the night on a motorcycle trip through the Smokies last spring. We had passed by it several times and decided to finally journey up the hill to see what it was all about and boy were we happy we did! We were lucky enough to have stopped by on a night with a few vacancies which is rare and quickly snatced up an upper floor larger queen room with a great view of the mountaiside below. Our room was very comfortable and cute. The bathroom was a little on the small side but equally as cute! We ventured downstairs for a drink at the bar and were met by an extremely efficient and friendly bartender. We grabbed our drinks and headed out to the deck overlooking the Smokies--what a view! Relaxing to be able to sit in the big rocking chairs and sip some cocktails....oh so nice and then the best part--dinner! Included in their package price was a gourmet meal that stuffed us so full! After dinner a nice stroll and some romance in the screened in gazebo and a peaceful night's sleep. In the morning another gourmet meal and a lunch to go! Most people staying at the inn could get their lunch packed in a picnic basket or backpack to take along on a hike or for a secluded picnic in the woods. Since we were on a motorcycle and headed out, they obliged us by packing our delicious lunch in a paper sack and we were enjoying several hundred miles down the road still dreaming of our lovely stay!

Room Tip: Spens the extra dollars for the larger rooms that have a view of the mountainside.

My husband and I got married at Snowbird last weekend and it was the best experience. The lodge is located in such a beautiful place that the scenery alone is worth the trip! But besides that the rooms were comfortable, the food was outstanding and the staff was so accommodating. We had a very small wedding which we held in the library in front of the picture window at sunset. We had 7 guests and 2 photographers. The hotel set up a private table for us on the terrace where we enjoyed our giant meal. They followed us from room to room with chilled champagne, the whole weekend was exactly what we had hoped it would be and more! Make sure to partake of the many great hiking trails and don't skip breakfast - order everything it's worth it! We will be returning to Snowbird annually to enjoy this amazing and relaxing place. If you want a vacation that is scenic with good food and nice people this is the place to go.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Wolfe cottage - wonderful porch view, gas fireplace very comfortable.

Have been to Snowbird several times and have always loved it. I have been in the last few years but it would not let me post that exact date. I love love love Snowbird.
We have always stayed in the Lodge and enjoyed the rooms. The Cottage rooms are nice as well. It's a wonderful place to get away to for a few days. The food is exquisite and wonderful! We have enjoyed hiking, biking, the sunsets and just sitting on the terrace visiting or reading a book in the lodge area where there are some very nice and comfy leather couches.
It's a special place to us and we will always continue to visit this amazing Lodge. We have to find child care first because children are not allowed, but thank goodness for that! I could not imagine bringing children to this serene and quiet retreat. We will be back again!Promise! This is the place to go with your spouse to get away from it all!

Owned by proprietor Robert Rankin, the Snowbird is a unique lodge experience with great staff, food, wine and accommodations. You can have both the cozy experience of the historic rooms in the lodge or dial into a more private, romantic space in their more recently built cabins. Go once & you'll become a regular!
