Tuckasiegee River Mountain Lodge

The views from the front porch are fantastic! Our large antique room with a king-size bed was beautiful. The two breakfasts couldn't have been better! It was a very relaxing weekend. Don't be surprised to find guests with their dogs. The family staff is very attentive. We would definitely go back.

The pet friendly atmosphere of this place is definitely a plus if you want to travel and can't leave your pets at home, which is why we decided to give it a try. We stay at b&b's in the area regularly and this is the first to allow pets without an exorbitant fee. However, there were a couple of areas where this place fell short of expectations. First, we arrived to find a security gate and a sign saying ' call this number for entry code'. Problem is, there is no cell service there so we had to turn around after 6 hours driving with two dogs in the back, and drive back the way we came until we got a signal and could call. They really should tell people about that before they arrive! Second was the food. All b&b's I've ever stayed at offer a multi-course breakfast. Here you get one item, and you'll be charged extra if you ask for anything else. The quality of the food was ok, but certainly not up to par with other places we have stayed - that said, the prices are not as high either so you get what you pay for.
On the plus side the owners were helpful and friendly, and the hiking trails around were great. Considering the number of pets they must accommodate, they do a good job keeping the place looking nice and the grounds well kept.

Stayed here May 16-18, 2014. Inn is at the top of a mountain. So, the drive is very steep but well worth it. The views of the are are great. Very nice porch with rocking chairs, gas fire pit, etc.. to enjoy the evening. The commons areas are nice with televisions, board games, and books. There is a small gym as well as a game room with a pool table. Guests must leave this room by 10 pm since there is a sleeping room next to it. Lots of nature trails nearby. Cherokee (and casino) is seven miles away. Lots of backroads nearby to take in the waterfalls and scenery. Asheville is about 45 minutes away. The family staff is very nice and knowledgable of the area. Their kids assist with meals and are super sweet. The meals (especially breakfast) was great......ask for the meat eaters breakfast. Great stay and would definitely go back.

The view from the lodge is as good as it gets in the Smokies. It is located very conveniently to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the main body of the Great Smokey Mountains Park as well as to one of the special portions not connected to the main park.
The lodge was built by a wealthy businessman as a family retreat and hunting lodge. The food was good and the owners were excellent hosts. Our room was very nice - large and quiet.

Room Tip: If you have children, you might want to be located close to the game room. We preferred being away f...

This lodge was built in the 1940's and sits high on a mountain. Our suite accomodated up to 4 adults, so my husband and I invited a couple of friends to join us on our weekend getaway. We stayed in the Sapphire Suite, which is right next to a nice large game room, perfect for kids and adults to enjoy, as there is a pool table, juke box (that plays oldies), video arcade games, a flat screen tv and comfortable seating. This inn is filled with plenty of antique furniture and decor. The staff and their children are friendly and helpful and a delight to be around. Our room had wonderful mountain views. One of the rooms in the suite has a small fridge and electric fireplace. The two bedrooms share a bathroom. The bathroom is small and adequate, but may prove a bit challenging for today's modern woman to 'get ready' in the morning, as there is no vanity to set your products on -- just a small old fashioned sink. Also, be sure to bring your own hair dryer. I did not bring my own, assuming the place had one, but it doesn't. But, I did find that the little electric fireplace dried my hair fairly quickly. :) If you are allergic to animals, you won't want to stay here. I was delighted to see there are several dogs and cats on the property, and guests are allowed to bring pets as well. While I greatly enjoyed visiting with the other guests and their animal companions, it's worth mentioning for the benefit of those who don't. Breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed lively conversation with the other guests as well as the staff. If the weather is nice, take your meal out to the porch and enjoy the gorgeous views. We were invited to enjoy a nice ham Easter dinner prepared by the staff and served by the children. We all chose to eat on the porch and it was a wonderful experience. And the staff also lit a nice small bonfire in the evening. It was a perfect ending to the day and gave the perfect opportunity to do a bit of star gazing.

Room Tip: The Sapphire Suite is a perfect choice if you are travelling with friends or children, as both rooms...

We stayed 4 days and just hated to leave.Smoky Mountains National Park was close so we enjoyed hiking, and exploring new trails and waterfalls there. Also a great trip to Biltmore Estates was less than an hour away. Nancy was great with suggestions for things to do and places to eat, as well as history and interesting facts. Tisha and James were also so friendly and great cooks serving the best breakfasts. Views from the huge front porch were amazing, and we can't wait to go back again!

When going on trips my family has always been picky about getting a good hotel room with a nice view and a clean good smelling room. I was a little nervous about a B&B up in the mountains because I watch too many scary movies but it was amazing! The room was spacious with our own bathroom that had a shower and a bath tub. Not to mention the view was absolutely gorgeous! The people who own it are very nice and welcoming, especially for pets! We were going to check our dog into a kennel since she has anxiety and we didn't want her to mess anything up but they told us to cancel it and had their son check on her and play with her. The food they have is great and they have plenty of options for vegetarians! This was my first time in the mountains and at this bed and breakfast and most definitely will not be the last. I can't wait to go back and see what fun stuff they have in the summer!
