We spent a week in the North Carolina/Tennessee Smoky Mountains while attending the Blue Ridge Run Dual Sport Rally. See our Rally Post in Devils Creek DR.
The three day rally was held in Cruso, NC; afterward, we packed up and relocated to the Ironhorse Motorcycle Lodge in Stecoah to ride the forest roads around the Cherohalla Skyway in east Tennessee.
I honestly don't think that one can find a nicer motorcycle lodge in the Smoky Mountains...if not anywhere for that matter. They accommodate everything from primitive camping to full size, multi-occupant houses. They also have a rare bunkhouse concept.
While we were hauling our toy hauler, we opted for the two bed cabin. There was, in fact, four cabins in this building with two cabins sharing a nice, clean bath on each side.
I camped in the camping area in April 2016, with electric for my electric blanky.
There's a nice little stream rolling right through the middle of the lodge.
The lodge offers some pre-order meals. It is not a restaurant that you can walk in and order. Rather, you're orders need to be provided the night before by 9PM.
Bathrooms are plentiful and their are six nice, clean showers.
Overall, it's just a real comfortable place run by super nice people. Yes, it's pricy, but compared to other options the prices are totally reasonable.
