In mid May we took a long weekend and drove from north Forida to the Snowbird Mountain Lodge north of Robinsville NC. Lovely old 1940's Inn. They have a beautiful old lobby with a real working fireplace, nice cozy bar (with gas fireplace) and big dinning room with lovely glass enclosed porch area,nice view for dinner. Our cabin was one of 2 Wolf cabins . We liked it because it was one of two on the far side of the Lodge. Loved our room! remote control fireplace ,pretty funny, but nice cause it was cool at night. Big bathroom with jaccuzi tub and our own hot tub on our private porch...really nice.
The staff was great, very helpful, accomodating. They russeled us up some breakfast early so we could eat and go trout fishing with a great fishing guilde the Lodge owner had recommended. We now know how to fly fish!
The grounds were very lovely, lots of native plants, great walking trails, we loved the screened in summerhouse with the big fire pit in the middle, very cozy and accomodating.
The food was very good. Very interesting items, fantastic trout, interesting new menu each night. Very nice breakfast, The only thing that could use improvement was the picnic lunch. It was okay, but not as interesting as the other meals. Although we certainly appreciated them making it for our outings, because there is no where up in the mountains to eat. Only thing was Robbinsville about 12 miles down the mountain and nothing there but fastfood.
The owner was very knowledgable, had lots of are maps,recommened a great fishing guide and we loved chatting with him. All the staff was great, desk and retaurant, everyone did a great job. We loved our stay and would recomment it to anyone. I especially like the big dogs lopping around and greeting you when you arrived, lots of fun, sweet dogs.
If you want a lovely place away from the city to relax, with very nice accomdations, excellent food, nice little bar in a lovely setting...Try the Snownbird!
