My wife and her grandmother were on a road trip and two stops were the Cherohala Skyway and the Tail of the Dragon. Tall Pines is conveniently located a few minutes from the entrance to the Cherohala and is prepared with rooms for any size. They have cabins, rooms and are also a stop to camp.
We had an issue with the cabin we rented initially and the caretaker Mark took care of it immediately. Mark was the absolute best to deal with. He set us up in the rooms they have there at the lodge and everything was clean and very enjoyable. The showers work great and there is also DirectTV and a ton of flicks in the lodge if you are looking to chill. A beautiful view sits outside of your window and all is quiet.
The food at the restaurant is surprisingly really good. I did not expect to get this kind of service at the top of a mountain, the breakfast, lunch and dinner were great and made to order.
If you are looking for a great place to stay, eat and be conveniently located near the Cherohala, Tall Pines is the best! Call Mark and he will take care of you every step of the way. Wish we could have stayed longer
