Best Place to Stay at the Dragon?

Taking the trip down with some of the guys later in the year and I'm trying to get some ideas on where to stay.

Whats you'alls opinion.

I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you F#*K with me, I will kill you all.

Last time i went down, the wife and I stayed at the Fontana Village Resort. Lots of different options including the lodge, cabins and campground. May be a little pricey, but I like to enjoy the extras on vacation. Good Luck!

I stayed at the Maggie Valley Inn, very biker friendly. And, they let you park your bike under the roof at the main entrance and have towels in a crate for you to wipe down your ride when you park it there. Nice bunch of folks and there is one bartender that makes a mean bloody mary there.

The object in life is not to arrive in a pristine well taken care of body; rather it is to slide in sideways, body thoroughly used up, a drink in one hand and chocolate in the other, screaming "That was one HELL of a ride!!!"

Fontana Village is close, but as stated, pricey. Usually I stay over at Waynesville which is a few miles down the main drag but close to Maggie Valley. There you have quick access to the BRP, are only a few miles out of Maggie, and maybe 30-40 minutes max ride to the Dragon on good roads. Good thing about Waynesville is lots of available rooms, good restaurants, used to be a Harley shop right there, but I heard it might have shut down recently.

I have lost my mind. I have ventured out to find it. If it returns before me, please hold it until I return.
Thank You.

A very cool place to stay is the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge. Great owners. Good food. They have rooms, camping or cabins that are pretty amazing. Some cabins can house up to 8 people. This place caters to two-wheelers but they have RV sites on property as well. Link below:
