Blain and Cathy, the owners, are wonderful folks. I found them to be helpful and friendly. Helped us get our motorcycle loaded into a 15ft truck to get it back home after a mechanical failure.

Immaculate, accommodating, relaxing, comfortable. Owners are friendly and informative. Quiet, peaceful area. Short (maybe 5-10 minutes), direct drive to Bryson City. Pool is pristine. The swings, the nightly fire under the pavilion, the swings, and the barbeque pits make this a great family or couples place a convenient and comfortable to stay in at night and cookout! However, plenty dine-in... More

We just stayed there last weekend with our 3 teenagers to go river tubing for the first time. We rented one of the cottages. It was totally worth the money for all the kids to have bedrooms and not all be crammed in one small motel room. The beds were comfortable to all of us. Using the full kitchen saved... More

On our way back from Lynchburg Tennessee and decided to stop for the night. I've read all the positive reviews and have to admit this is a very very well managed place. Beautiful grounds, fire pit by the river and some of the most welcoming staff I've ever met. The wife and I have already started making plans to return.... More

Travelling with my sister, we turned up at this motel after reading reviews on tripadvisor. Be aware that most GPS tell you that you have arrived at your destination about 1 mile before you actually arrive! (From Cherokee direction) We booked one of the cabins as they have laundry facilities. The lady was very helpful when we checked in, and... More

Our family comes to Bryson City/Cherokee every year and Two Rivers Lodge is by far the best hotel in the area. In the back of the property there is a beautiful view of the river along with a large fire pit and grill area.

The address lead you to think that it is locate in Bryson City, it's not. Our room was in a section that was in need of repair. The room was dirty and smelly. It is a dog friendly place so don't be surprised if your woken up early by barking dogs.

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us. We can't control our address but there are many references to our location outside of town on our website, face book, and Trip Advisor. I don't dispute that we are in need of updating and we have been unhappy with our housekeepers of late so we have recently replaced the housekeeping... More
