  • I am a local to the small town next to the village and my family and I always stay at least once a year! The staff is so amazing and sweet and our cabin is always so clean and nice. I see a lot of reviews about only the main lodge having WiFi and that's true but staying out here in the moutains is all about our beautiful views which you will always find at the village. We love the Nantahala Village and will continue to stay each year!
