“I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.” – Henry David Thoreau
Step back in time with a visit to the Historic Tapoco Lodge, where powerful engines and sleek combustion builds are contrasted by a beautiful mountain backdrop and the gorgeous Cheoah River right beyond our backdoor. Originally built as housing for the Tallahassee Power Company, this 150 year old lodge has a rich history that we would love you to be a part of.
Ride the Tail of the Dragon… if you dare. If motorized sports is what gets you going, there is no better destination than Tapoco Lodge, where guests are just steps away from the start of the Tail of the Dragon, one of the most beautiful and famous roads in America. Ride the over 300 turns and sharp curves while enjoying breathtaking views of the Great Smoky Mountains and Cherokee National Forest and experience the Carolinas like you never have before.
Did someone say brunch? Our riverside restaurant allows guests and visitors to experience the beautiful Cheoah River up close and personal. After your meal, be sure to explore one of our dozens of hiking trails, which connect guests to hundreds of acres of pristine, virgin forest.
