Absolutely wonderful experience!

5 on March 03, 2014

My wife and I stayed here last weekend, and were blown away by the beautiful lodge, the friendly staff, and the wonderful food! There was locally roasted fresh coffee available every time we came downstairs to hang out by the fireplace, and absolutely every detail was perfect. We love hiking, so having the appalachian trail literally pass by the property was a big bonus as well! I would HIGHLY recommend this lodge, and we will be returning very soon to possibly stay in the cabin next time! Thanks to everyone (especially Chuck) for making us feel right at home during our stay!


Best Value, Very nice rooms

We stayed in the firefly room and it was a bit smaller than we expected but a very nice place. LOVED the lodge. We wished we had spent more time downstairs in front of the fire.

The Laughing Heart is one of our favorite places to stay in the winter. Cozy rooms and a laid back atmosphere. The moutains are beuatiful all year round.

This is such a wonderful place to stay in Hot Springs! We loved the peaceful feel of the Lodge, the decor, the welcoming people we met. We stayed for 6 nights and were sad to leave. We enjoyed sitting outside looking at the beautiful view and there are comfortable common areas to sit inside as well. I had a delightful massage on site with Linda who was great! We also had a soak in one of the hot springs in town, ate at several good restaurants, and enjoyed shopping in the unique stores.
