Absolutely Perfect Family Lodge!!

  • 5 of 5

Linger Longer Lodge is just what the name never want to leave! Our family all met at the Lodge in December 2017 for an early family Christmas gathering. We had family from Wilmington, NC, Rome, GA, Atlanta, GA, and Gautier, MS. There were three generations with ages from 18 months to 64 years old. Everyone was thrilled with the location and the lodge. The scenery from the decks was breathtaking! The lodge easily gave all 13 of us plenty of room to be together as well as plenty of room for privacy. Each couple had their own room and bathroom which made for a very comfortable stay. The Lodge was very clean, well stocked with anything you could need to cook, and beautifully furnished...the epitome of a mountain lodge. The natural wood of the structure was beautiful inside and out. We have already booked for next year as we are hoping this will be our 'every year' family Christmas gathering place. Wish you could see how beautiful the stair rails looked adorned with all 13 Christmas stockings and lights. Our family has absolutely nothing negative to say about Linger Longer Lodge...a five star rating from us!

Great time at Linger Longer Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this house. We had 24 people staying here and there was more than enough room for us to all hang out whether on one of the rocking chairs outside or in the living room. The scenery was great and there were a lot of trails nearby if we wanted to walk a few miles. Ford was very accommodating and incredibly helpful when it came to the planning, documentation etc. I highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful stay at Linger Longer Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Linger Longer Lodge was a wonderful place to stay. The home had a fully stocked kitchen (two refrigerators and stoves) which was useful with a big group. There was plenty of room for everyone to stretch out. Another plus was each bedroom had its own bathroom. The location of the home was close to many store, hiking trails etc. Highly recommend for large groups

Beautiful home and views!

  • 5 of 5

I took a group here in the bitter cold of early January (single degree temps). I was impressed that the heat, hot water, and everything else worked like clockwork during this cold snap. The home had everything we needed in the kitchen, the rooms were comfortable, the views and nooks breathtaking (too bad we couldn't enjoy time outdoors!). My recommendation to future guests would be to bring ear plugs for sleeping - sound travels pretty freely in the home. Thanks for this wonderful space for our group to call home for a few days, and thanks to the host for his excellent communication throughout the reservations process.
