Old-Fashioned Bed and Breakfast High Above the Tuckasiegee River

From the front porch of Tuckasiegee River Mountain Lodge, you can look out onto a seemingly endless expanse of forest in the Great Smoky Mountains. It’s a sensational view worth the trip to the lodge’s remote setting at the end of a mile-long road in the wilderness. Inside, husband-and-wife innkeepers John and Nancy Hopp make guests feel welcome with home-cooked breakfasts, a quaint gift shop, and a meeting room where you can watch TV sitcoms from the 1950s. The lodge is located within an hour's drive not only from Great Smoky Mountains National Park but also the Biltmore estate and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The lodge has just five guest suites, which helps ensure peace and quiet during your stay. Each unit is named for a different gemstone and is appropriately decorated in rich hues of ruby, emerald, sapphire, amethyst, or pearl, as well as with rustic wood paneling and antique furnishings. All rooms are pet friendly, and on chilly nights, you and your furry friend can warm up next to the electric fireplace.

At the lodge's restaurant, co-innkeeper James Shively uses local produce and farm-fresh eggs to make decadent complimentary breakfasts that can include pancakes, fresh fruit, and cooked-to-order eggs. You can eat in the onsite dining room, in the comfort of your guest room, or on the porch. The restaurant also serves sandwiches, salads, and more for lunch and dinner.

Whittier, North Carolina: Tranquil Riverside Town near Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Located along the Tuckasiegee River in the mountains of western North Carolina, Whittier draws visitors primarily with its breathtaking natural setting. In town, you’re about a 10-minute drive from the southern entrance of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where you can hike past rushing waterfalls and spot woodland creatures including black bears, woodchucks, and wild turkeys. To get up close and personal with nature, go whitewater rafting on the Tuckasiegee or snow tubing down the hills in winter.

The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad’s train chugs past colorful hemlock, birch, and sugar-maple trees as it makes its way along the riverside. Board the old-fashioned locomotive at nearby Bryson City for a more than three-hour journey to historical railroad towns and depots.

Customer Reviews

Beautiful setting, excellent bedrooms and food.
Gary N. · November 18, 2013
The view from the front porch was breathtaking!!! And breakfast was some of the best food we've ever had. The country meat skillet was our meal of choice 3 of the 4 days we were there.
