This program recognizes communities for their part in promoting awareness of the A.T. as an important national asset. “The Appalachian Trail Conservancy is proud to celebrate communities that are helping to protect and promote the Appalachian Trail,” stated Julie Judkins, Community Program Manager of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. A designation ceremony, to be held at Fontana Village Resort in Fontana Dam, is tentatively scheduled for March 26, 2015.

Fontana Village is certainly somewhere you look forward to after hiking through the mountains and although the rooms do need a little TLC, it's a great place to wind down and relax. It's all very rustic and country and that's part of the charm. The staff could not of been lovelier - all were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable for our onward travel. Recommended!

My family had an awful experience here. Our cabin was a dump with huge stains on the carpet and the furniture and litter (cigarette butts and plastic cups) on the ground outside that no one had bothered to pick up. There were so few dishes and utensils in the kitchen that there was really no way to make any sort of meal. The grounds here are ugly, and the whole area where the cabins are looks sort of like a big trailer park. (The pictures you see on the website are from near the main lodge.) In addition, the activities advertised on the Fontana Village website don't exist. They advertise horseback riding, but the nearest stable is over an hour away. They advertise craft classes that families can participate in, but we were there for a week and there was not a single one. The staff makes no particular effort to be friendly or welcoming. We are never going back. There are MUCH better places to stay in the NC mountains.

Just returned from a week at Fontana Village and was impressed all-around. We started off in a less than stellar cabin, called to check on other options and the front office staff did an excellent job in working with our family and we were moved to a nicer cabin with better view the next day after a car rally left. We used Fontana Village as our base camp for hiking, boating and driving tours of the local area. The marina on Fontana Lake (about 2 miles away) is great and provides pontoon rentals, guided boat & hiking combo tours, sunset tours and canoe/kayak/SUP rentals. VERY NICE folks at the marina. There is also quite a bit to do at the Village with weekly events for all ages. Nice little Putt Putt course, volleyball, softball, Frisbee Golf course, 2 pools, general store with ice cream, 2 places to eat (great service and food was excellent), live music, clogging lessons, history lessons on the area and more. This is not a Disney style resort and we did hear a few people complaining about their decision to stay here. I'd also not pay attention to reviews written pre 2011-12. They made some staffing changes and have obviously made some great hires since that time. If you are looking for a nice little mountain resort with LOTS to do nearby (AT hiking, a beautiful lake with hardly any boat traffic, scenic drives, white water rafting, train ride, horseback rides) then I would highly recommend Fontana Village. We are already planning a family reunion there for next year.

I have been going to Fontana Village Resort once or twice a year for the past few years. During that time, I have seen tremendous improvement of the structures, thanks to the newest owners. They are from nearby, not Asheville or out-of-state. They have invested million$ during the last few years. In the Spring, I go to participate in MINIs On The Dragon (MOTD). There are a number of car clubs and motorcycle clubs who use the resort as a base for a regional or national rally. For such people, the proximity of "The Dragon" (US129), the "Hell Bender" (hwy 28) and the Cherohala Skyway are more important than luxury amenities. There are exceptions and those people stay elsewhere - perhaps where they can get a five cour$e dinner included. Some people expect too much from Fontana Village Resort. One must remember that it is fundamentally a left-over labor camp from the workers who built the adjacent Fontana Dam seventy years ago. It was neither built as, nor will ever be, a luxury resort. Some of us wouldn't want it to be. There is a nearby re$ort, on Hwy 129/Tapoco Rd., that was an Alcoa corporate retreat built about ten years before what is now Fontana Village was built. In that regard, people should read the Yelp reviews, not only those at TA. The two places were, are, and always will be, very different. Unlike that other resort, Fontana Village has been very accommodating of motorcycle and sports car clubs. Regardless, it is fundamentally old, rustic & remote. During one of my recent stays, the entire resort lost power. I have seen reviews ragging on them for that. Others rag on them because there is very limited cell phone service and really very limited everything in the off season. Go there for a remote, rustic getaway. But, understand that you MUST drive some extremely twisty, hilly roads to get there. Some people are attracted to exactly that -- some repulsed.

This place is great. The restaurant at the lodge is amazing (albeit a little pricey). I will definitely be staying here again!
