Seriously Smitten with Lakeview at Fontana

Last week my mom took me on a two day getaway to Lakeview at Fontana. Throughout my stay, I  fell head over heels with this property and by the time I left,  I vowed to return as often as possible and bring everyone I know with me. I mean... just look at it.


Lakeview at Fontana is a renovated 1950's motel, tucked away in the Smoky Mountains.  With a free standing spa on site, a cozy café, a comfy tv lounge, a yoga studio, a beautiful deck overlooking Fontana lake, and a pool, you have everything you need for a ridiculously relaxing experience.  The best part? It’s not stuffy or uptight.  If you want to get dressed up with your girlfriends and enjoy wine on the deck, so be it, if you want to read a book by the pool enjoying coffee in your pjs, you can do that too.

Throw free French press coffee, pastries, Out of the Blue Granola, sangria, wine and cheese into the mix and I'm basically going to pass out.



I also got two massages while I was there.  (I know...it's insane.) The first massage I had ended right when the hour of free wine and appetizers was beginning.  So, what did I do?  I went straight from a massage to the cafe (greasy hair and all), got myself a glass of sangria, a plate full of finger foods and sat outside reading a book.  (How much do you hate me right now?) If you are thinking an experience like this would have to cost a fortune, it doesn't.  Check out their rates on their website and GO DOOOO ITTTTT!  (And no... this is not a sponsored post...)

Thanks Mom!!!!!!!!!!

Also, just in case you want a second opinion on why you should get your bum over to Lakeview at Fontana, read this article from Southern Living


P.S. I won something super awesome last night.  I'm basically freaking out about it.  More details coming soon.
