A travel tradition since 1930

    The Historic Tapoco Lodge
    Nearly 100 Years of History

    Nestled on the banks of the Cheoah River, our historic Tapoco Lodge has been a North Carolina mainstay for outdoor adventurers, gear heads, and nature enthusiasts since 1930. Whether you want to explore our 120 acre campus via groomed trails, visit Nantahala National Forest, enjoy a wine whilst seated around one of our riverbank fire pits, or drive the Tail of the Dragon, we have something for everyone. At Tapoco Lodge, we don’t just say ‘welcome,’ we say ‘Welcome Home’.
