Fontana Village Resort, a year round destination resort, is set amidst the pristine beauty of the Nantahala Forest of Western North Carolina, gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The area's breathtaking mountain vistas and panoramic views from Fontana & Cheoah lakes provide memories to last a lifetime.
The Village has a wide range of accommodations, including rooms in the intimate settings of The Lodge, suites, cabins, houseboats on Fontana Lake looking into the Smokies, as well as RV & tent camping on the beautiful Cheoah. Add convention space, restaurants, outfitters, day spa, pools, marina, bike shop, horseback riding, miles of on-site trails suitable for biking and hiking, and it's easy to see why Fontana is the Great Smoky Mountain Destination.
Fontana Village offers comfortable accommodations for special interest groups. Bring your motorcycle club, square dance group, sports car club, youth group, mountain biking friends, fishing buddies, church clubs, family reunion, nature group, or hunt club. There is ample room for any size group.
For the motorcycle enthusiast there is the renowned Tail of the Dragon on Hwy. 129, the challenging Hellbender 28 that saddles up lakeside for twenty-two miles along Fontana Lake and the Cherohala Skyway, a fifty mile ridgeline dream ride.
For the day tripper, the stops are endless... the Cherokee Reservation and Harrah's Casino, whitewater rafting on the Cheoah River or Nantahala Gorge, shopping in Gatlinburg & Pigeon Forge, Dollywood, skiing in beautiful Maggie Valley, boating and fishing on the pristine lakes, mountain heritage festivals. And these are just the highlights!
