Superb, rustic, mountain top location, with mom and pop atmosphere. Property is older but very well kept and maintained by excellent staff. Breakfast and evening dinner are part of the room rate and the meals were home style, breakfast is as ordered, no buffet style. View from all cabins and dining room was spectacular. The Johnson family make a special...

Wonderful place to stay and make your Base Camp. Views magnificent. We have been in Europe and stayed at cottages in the "original" Switzerland. This place is better because it is Made in the USA. We will return in the Fall with friends.

Five buddies on motorcycles recently took a trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains to ride all the scenic roads. On a suggestion from a friend who had previously stayed at the Big Lynn Lodge, we booked rooms for a 4 day 3 night stay. We were all some what skeptical about not staying a national chain hotel, but after staying...

Stayed at Big Lynn's for 5 nights, took advantage of free night special, and my wife and I really enjoyed their hospitality. We stayed in one of the rooms facing the mountains and had a great view each day in the rocking chairs they have on each porch. The rooms were very clean and parking was easy and close. The...

The room was very nice, clean comfortable bed and large television in the room. The parking was ample and right next to the room. The sunset and sunrise was beautiful sitting in the rocking chairs on the deck. We enjoyed the evening and dinner, then breakfast the following morning. It is a unique set up with plenty of good food...

We've stayed at the Big Lynn Lodge quite a few times and have enjoyed every visit. We now like cabin rentals with hot tubs, but you just beat the lodging and ambience here at the lodge. The owners make you feel very welcome and it's a uniquely wonderful experience to stay here.

I have been a professional mystery guest for most of my life. This was a vacation not work, and it was great. Friendly employees, comfortable beds and pillows, a nice flat screen TV, country cooking all made for a very nice stay. Better still was the view from the cabins; all with rocking chairs on the porches. The only minus...

My family and i decided to come back to Big Lynn one last time before the season ended for the year. We decided to stay in the "newer" part of the lodge which is on the right side of the office. We love staying here for the view on the valley below and for having breakfast and dinner served to...

My family stayed here recently as part of a family reunion. My wife and I are accustomed to the older type room since we are baby boomers. My 20 something son was disappointed there was no flat screen TV but they did have access to ESPN channels (which my brother-in-law does not have in his home nearby). Meals (breakfast and...
