We were there for 3 nights. Very clean and quiet. The river view was very relaxing. The owners were very nice. I loved the fire pit by the water. If you like quiet and clean this is the place for you. I would recommend this to anyone.

Loved this place. Was looking for a quaint motor motel and this place was perfect. Had everything we needed. Wasn't the Ritz, but wasn't looking for the Ritz. Owners were so friendly and places was smack dab in the middle of Bryson and Cherokee. BED WAS COMFORTABLE too. Sat right bank of the river. PEACEFUL

For this place to be a 5 star they would have to tear it down and start over, so I have no idea who is dropping 5's on their Google page, but they must have been high or drunk when they stayed there. Let me preface this by saying that I was advised this place was a little more 60's...

Any time I am near Bryson City, I stay at Two Rivers Lodge. Blain and Kathy always welcome me. It is older and 'rustic' but it is clean and has everything I need. It is a beautiful area on the river and they work hard to keep it nice for their customers. I love that rooms have the fridge, microwave,...

The environment was clean, staff was very friendly and it was very close to downtown without being in downtown. The only drawback was the number of smokers that were staying at the lodge. Most just sat outside of their rooms smoking, which was some what uncomfortable for us. They do have a nice size pool and outdoor fire pit, which...
