Nice accommodations for people and equines. Some of the trails could have been groomed more but all around great time. Good clean lodging and very accommodating with my equine family members! Highly recommend.

Would not advise anyone staying here. The barn we stayed in was the nicest part of our stay and the fact it was close to the trailhead. The water was brown the majority of the time and not enough water pressure. With three trailers there, no one could run water if another person was using it. When you watered the...

Dear Rose, Thank you for staying with us. The water at the barn is from a well and it runs through sandstone, which causes some sand at time. Running the water for a few minutes will allow it to clear. The shower house you are referring to as "down in the Hollow" is checked as often. Campers are expected to...

I stayed two nights at the lodge while looking at properties in the area. The room was comfortable and clean ans Jim and Claudia weren't the perfect hosts full of information! Claudia cooked me a delicious breakfast and give me loads of tips and trivia about the horse trails and life at Big South Fork. I look forward to a...

I haven't been here in a long time but thought the facilities and trails were were great! There are easy trails and some more challenging . Most of the land is reclaimed mining but it's beautiful. Very clean campground.

You will be right at the park boundry when staying here. The Cumberland trailhead is directly across the road. This is a lodge and horsecamp for horse riders. It's furnished to be such. All rooms have a porch for "sittin". Across the road is the Hitching Post general store and home kitchen where you can have a home cooked breakfast...

My wife and I recently spent a one-night getaway at the Big South Fork Lodge in Jamestown, Tennessee. The private lodge room we stayed in was clean, warm (on a particularly cold night), and cozy with the added bonus of a mini-fridge. We were welcomed at The Hitching Post General Store and Grill across the street by Jim, the owner...

May our experience serve as a warning to others. We stayed in the Railroad Cabin. Terrible, Let me repeat: Terrible in every way. We stayed for one night (although we paid for 2) and all we could think about was getting out first thing in the morning.

We enjoyed our stay at the lodge very much. The room was comfortable and clean and we really enjoyed the cheeseburgers too! We were there for hiking and received good information from both Jim and Claudia. We are already planning another trip back to visit soon. It was a very relaxing place to stay!

Jim and Claudia were the best hosts you can find! They were so accomodating to us for any and everything we needed. The lodging wasn't fancy but very livable and easy to access. Our own little 4 stall barn, paddocks, firewood and grill as well as full kitchenette. Great food at their Hitching Post Restaurant and Store. Easy access to...
