Old-Fashioned Bed and Breakfast High Above the Tuckasiegee River

From Tuckasiegee River Mountain Lodge’s front porch, you can look out onto a seemingly endless expanse of forest-covered Great Smoky Mountains. It’s a sensational view that rewards those making the trip down a mile-long road that winds through the wilderness. Inside the lodge, husband-and-wife innkeepers John and Nancy Hopp, along with their son and daughter-in-law, make folks feel at home with home-cooked breakfasts, a gift shop, and a meeting room where you can watch TV sitcoms from the 1950s. The lodge’s location only enhances each stay, as it’s within an hour's drive from Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Biltmore Estate, and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The lodge has just five guest suites, which helps ensure peace and quiet. Each suite 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, innkeeper James Shively uses local produce and farm-fresh eggs to make a decadent complimentary breakfast that has included pancakes, fresh fruit, and breakfast casseroles. 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. Make sure to call ahead for a reservation at the lodge's restaurant.

Highlights of Whittier, North Carolina

  • Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains: Whittier is set along the Tuckasiegee River, just a 10-minute drive from the southern entrance of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
  • Hike at sunrise or sunset for the best views of wildflower fields and waterfalls along the park’s more than 800 miles of trails. The 1-mile trek to Clingman’s Dome—about 35 miles north of town—is especially nice, and it’s doable for all levels of hiker.
  • The Blue Ridge Parkway meanders nearly 500 miles through the Appalachian Highlands. As you drive, keep on the lookout for wildlife including black bears, woodchucks, and wild turkeys.
  • All aboard: In the spring, summer, and fall, the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad chugs along the Tuckasiegee River. Board it at nearby Bryson City for a three-hour journey through historical railroad towns and depots.
