GREAT PLACE FOR A RELAXING VACATION!!
Recently spent a wonderful week at the Bison Overlook Lodge for my husbands birthday. What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the mountains. The animals were entertaining and the encounters we had with members of the owners family were always friendly and helpful. Walked the trail to the playground. Great place for kids to enjoy. Took a walk most mornings to the main road which is exactly 1/2 mile from the front door of the lodge. You get to enjoy the llamas, goats, mini pony, rabbits and buffalo during the walk. Received a kiss from the llama every day!! The lodge itself is very comfortable. Everything needed to cook meals is available. Great pots and pans. Loved having the griddle for breakfast meals. Plenty of towels, blankets and pillows. The games available in the basement, air hockey, pool, basketball, shuffleboard and foosball were fun. Let Cheryl know we wanted to try the bison steaks and they were delivered the same day. We all enjoyed the steaks. Could have eaten them every day!! The views from the back deck were amazing. Took some great pictures of a beautiful sunrise one morning. Didn't use the hot tub much since we have one at home but our friend staying with us from Rhode Island did and found it very relaxing. We visited Chimney Rock, Grandfathers Mountain and the Smoky Mountains while we were there. Enjoyed them all. Ate at Joey's Pancake House in Maggie Valley and thought it was very good. Ate at Fatz and LOVED the fried green tomatoes. Drove to Summerville SC to shop and attend the Summerville Beer and Food Festival Downtown. It was a lot of fun. Also attended the Waynesville Craft and Food Festival which we also enjoyed. We all noticed how FRIENDLY the people in the south are. Thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and this wonderful lodge. Would definitely recommend the lodge to others and would absolutely stay there again!!!
