Lakeview at Fontana
A North Carolina Boutique Mountain Spa Resort:
I had the incredible pleasure of working with Lakeview at Fontana in creating this travel highlight for them. Lakeview at Fontana is a rustic, yet chic boutique mountain spa resort located on Fontana Lake in Bryson City, NC. The views are insane and everyone that we encountered at the resort went out of their way to make sure that our experience was the best that it could be!
Rates start at $99/night and Amenities include:
- Delicious French pressed coffee and pastries each morning
- Wine hour with cheese and hors d’oeuvres each evening
- Aveda bath products
- On site yoga studio
- Mountainside pool
- Hiking trails
- Gorgeous Views of Fontana Lake
- Pet Friendly
I traveled to Bryson City, NC with Olivia, and we had such a fun girls trip! We did yoga in the mornings and laughed while drinking wine in the evening. However, with that said, Lakeview at Fontana would make an incredible romantic weekend getaway for couples… just wait until you see the treetop soaking tub! I seriously could not get enough of the mountain views that Lakeview has to offer!
I haven’t done yoga in a few years, but I absolutely love it when I do make myself go! It is such a relaxing and personal experience, and the yoga staff at Lakeview at Fontana are truly wonderful! A one hour yoga class is offered every morning at 9am; the cost is $15!
Breakfast is actually one of my absolute favorite times of the day. I don’t always make myself a great breakfast when I am at home alone, and that’s why I truly appreciate a quality breakfast when traveling. Lakeview at Fontana truly goes above and beyond each and every morning with their breakfast (and everything else for that matter). Plus, their French-pressed coffee is out of this world!
And then to top off the outstanding breakfast, they outdo their own selves by hosting a complimentary wine hour each evening! Their Cabernet Sauvignon was phenomenal, and so were the snacks that went along with it! Lakeview at Fontana truly knows how to make their guests feel at home!
I am a full supporter of treating yourself (obviously, right?). Well, the spa at Lakeview at Fontana is the perfect place to do just that! I received the all-in-one massage and the honey and turmeric facial, and Olivia received the all-in-one massage, and a full body scrub and mask. All of our treatments were phenomenal, but the facial was my absolute favorite! All of the ladies that work at the spa are excellent at what they do!
We stayed in the cutest cottage-style bungalow! Having two large beds, it was the perfect size for two girls with way too much stuff (lol). We loved coming back to our little home at the end of each day! While regular rooms start at $99, these bungalows start at $199.
Treetop Soaking Tub:
Probably the coolest and most iconic thing about Lakeview at Fontana is the treetop soaking tub and cabana! The cabana is located at the very top of the resort; it is completely private and secluded. It is available for 1.5 hour rentals at the rate of $99… and trust me, it is worth ever single dime!
During your rental, bath products, soaking salts, robes, and music are all provided. Drinks are allowed, just no glass. This was one of the most relaxing and humbling feelings that I have experienced in a long time; and the view from the cabana is absolutely to die for! This is truly a breath-taking experience and I highly recommend it to everyone!
I would go back to Lakeview at Fontana in a heartbeat! Bryson City is such a cute town and has tons of things to do and see! I will be creating a Bryson City Travel Guide in the next few days to highlight some of the amazing things and dining experiences that we were about to take part in during our trip!
We all know that I love tropical vacations, but there is something so special about a weekend getaway in the mountains! I hope that I have inspired you to take a mini-vacation of your own soon!
