Online Review: 3/5
Pros: This facility is located in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains, and from time-to-time, you may get a chance to enjoy the beauty. The staff are decent fellows. Cons: The food is a little bland sometimes, and not all of the other people lodging here are the nicest. I'd personally recommend making different plans if you think your current route may bring you here.
