Equipped with 11 elegantly furnished suites in the main lodge and 20 cabin rooms, the Historic Tapoco Lodge features two on-site restaurants. The SlickRock Riverside Grille is the perfect place to gather a group of friends for game day parties or a more formal reception, including facilities to make wood stone fired pizzas.

All restaurant equipment will be included with the sale of the lodge.


 The Historic Tapoco Lodge has an incredible storied past, much of which has been maintained through its 2010 renovation.The property was home to the town of Tapoco, founded in 1913, to provide housing for the hundreds of workers contructing the hydroelectric dams which today provide unlimited water sports right in it's own back yard. The Tapoco Tin Movie House has been restored to its glory days when it was also used  as a community center, dance hall, and for going away parties for the many local soldiers during World War II.


When your guests do feel the need to venture out on their own, the nation’s most popular playground is at their fingertips in the Great Smoky Mountains. The Historic Tapoco Lodge sits at The Tail of the Dragon, an 11-mile mountain pass famous for its staggering 318 curves. This of course makes both The Tail of the Dragon and Historic Tapoco an obvious choice for motorcyclists, sports car drivers, and bikers to visit from all over the world.


With hiking, canoeing, rafting, kayaking, fishing, mountain biking, and so much more just out your doorstep, the Historic Tapoco Lodge is truly a piece of history amidst a natural playground. With infrastructure in place to accommodate 300 more units, providing great potential for expansion of a hotel or development, this is a rare opportunity to be sure to take advantage of.
