Lodge is old.

Pros: Lazy river pool.
Cons: Fix the problems and update Lodge.
Location: Location in montains. Many things to do if driving does not bother you. There is rafting, boating, hiking etc.
A/C turned off and on every few minutes and made it difficult to sleep. Ants on the bathroom sink. Broken shower faucet. Smelled old. Resturant food poorly prepared.l

Went to Ride the Dragon Tail

Husband and I went for our 41st anniversary. He wanted to ride the Dragon Tail and he did. Staying at Fontana Village Resort was an added bonus for me. We had a great time there. The swimming pools and lazy river are excellent. The staff is very helpful. The room is nice and comfortable. The only area where there could be some improvement was the availability of something to eat. The restaurant in the lodge has limited hours and the grill has a limited menu. There was stuff for sale at the general store and that helped. This is a wonderful location in the mountains with beautiful water all around. We really liked it a lot.
