Paid the extra money for accessible room. Non smoking pet friendly worked out well for us to have room to move and a sofa to put feet up. Plenty of heat for a chilly night. Would stay again but like a cabin. Family friendly.

This is our second time staying here and we have enjoyed it both times. Always friendly staff when checking in and out, very clean. This time we had just a couple of minor issues, but neither were any that would effect our stay and we let the staff know. You also receive a 10% discount at Jim Oliver's, the restaurant...

I was a bit weary of booking this place based on some other negative TripAdvisor reviews, but my choices in the area were limited so I chose it anyway. Once I arrived and checked in, my worries were put to ease. The check-in was smooth, the room was nice and clean; I saw no issues. I travel quite a bit...

I was very excited about spending a weekend in a cabin in the mountains. The price for two nights was almost $600 which would have been acceptable other than there were cockroaches in the kitchen and after the second mind I realized the reason that I could not get warm in the bed was because A curtain was used as...

We sincerely apologize for your inconveniences. We will check into the bed comforter, I can't imagine any of our housekeeping using curtains as comforters. Also, we use Orkin pest control and have had good success with their services, however we will shut down that cabin for proper long term treatment, thanks for letting us know.

I was here on a church retreat and stayed one night. The hotel is in a nice scenic area, it has an outdoor building for group activities, it is open on three sides but has 2 large fireplaces which give a very cozy ambiance to the group activity. The rooms of the hotel were not bad, the only issue I...

We appreciate your comments and glad you liked the place. I think all of our AC units have remote controls in the rooms, these are hand held controls not wall mounted. Perhaps this remote was misplaced. Thanks for your stay and hope your group will return.

The Smoke House Lodge & Cabins is really perfect for persons who enjoy Southern cordiality of all who work at the hotel and restaurant. The rooms are modest in size, but very clean. Internet access is very easy as is cable tv. My life and I most enjoyed the large shop of items related to Southern (including Grand Old Opry)...

My friends and I stopped here on the way to Nashville. We felt very welcomed when we entered the restaurant and were greeted with a friendly man who told us to "come on in and sit and let's see about getting y'all something to eat." Very southern, very sweet. The southern BBQ buffet was delicious! Don't miss the mashed potatoes!

Thanks for your comments, and we apologize for your problems. I can assure you that this is not a normal occurrence, and we have had Orkin pest control to come shore up our pest control. Your issues have been received and we will issue refund. We don't expect customers to tolerate any of these issues. Thank you.
