From the vintage gas pumps to the snuggled location within the hills - the views, stream running in front of the Lodge, cabins and motorcycle parking is an experience you much do at least once.

They even provide running water at the motorcycle parking with a cloth towel to wash and dry your bike after a fun outing on the 'Tail of the Dragon', touring Robinsville NC and connecting routes to TN.

You really must dine at their restaurant to enjoy the outdoors and fellowship with the staff - just a hoot.

Our friends and us have been going to Tapoco for over a decade, mainly since it's the best place to stay for riding the Tail of the Dragon. Recently we were there, the first time since the place was renovated and the restaurant expanded. It's now super The people are great, the restaurant really good, the rooms are swell, the environment is outstanding, etc., etc. Normally I'd have my Harley, but this time I took an BMW "M" car, which I got to park under the shelters provided for motorcycles. My mate and I stayed in the lodge, but a few of our pals did cabins. Both are fine, but the lodge is more convenient. We most definitely will be back.

Thank you so much for this review. If you don't mind me asking, so we can better serve our guests in the future, what can we do differently next time to receive a 5 star rating? We love knowing our guests were completely WOW'd by their time with us!

Thank you for your time!

First time to visit this beautiful historic lodge along the Dragon. All of the staff was professional and friendly - the lodge was quaint , clean, and peaceful. The restaurant was located alongside the rushing Cheoah River. Look forward to a return visit!

A wonderful place to retreat from a busy life. It was beautiful. The staff was so accommodating. The restaurant had excellent food and the ambiance was so wonderful. The patio sat right next to the rolling river. Absolutely beautiful. There were all kinds of amenities. Laundry facilities, beautiful grounds to explore, help in determining places to go to explore the Smokey mountains. It was perfect in every way!

What a fantastic night at Tapoco! Nothing better than relaxing on the back patio and enjoying the Cheoah River. Everything was very well-maintained, clean, and oh so comfortable. We love Tapoco and will be back again and again!
