Nestled in the midst of the Great Smoky Mountains and the Nantahala National Forest, the Historic Tapoco Lodge encompasses 120+/- acres running along the Cheoah River. This property has everything you will need on site for a relaxing vacation retreat.
Equipped with 9 elegantly furnished rooms/suites in the main lodge and 18 cabin rooms, the Historic Tapoco Lodge features two on-site restaurants. The Tapoco Tavern is the perfect place to gather a group of friends for game day parties. The Tavern includes a bar and wood stone pizza oven.
The Historic Tapoco Lodge has an incredible storied past, much of which has been maintained through its recent renovations. The property was home to the town of Tapoco, founded in 1913, to provide housing for the hundreds of workers constructing the hydroelectric dams. The Tapoco Tin Can Theater has been restored to its glory days when it was also used as a community center, dance hall, and for going away parties for the many local soldiers during World War II.
When you do feel the need to venture out, the nation’s most popular playground is at your fingertips in the Great Smoky Mountains. The Historic Tapoco Lodge is minutes from The Tail of the Dragon, an 11-mile mountain road famous for its staggering 318 curves. This, of course, makes both The Tail of the Dragon and the Historic Tapoco Lodge an obvious choice for motorcyclists, sports car drivers and two-lane tourists from all over the world.
With hiking, canoeing, rafting, kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, and so much more just out your doorstep, the Historic Tapoco Lodge is truly a piece of history amidst nature’s playground.
