About the Lodge

We offer charming cabin-style hotel rooms conveniently located in Tellico Plains, TN on Highway 68 in the foothills of the mountains of East Tennessee. We are approximately 25 miles from Interstate 75, 1/2 mile from the Cherokee National Forest, and only 3/4 mile from the beginning of the scenic Cherohala Skyway. Open year round, our lodge is a perfect setting for travelers, couples, and large groups to enjoy the peace and solitude after a wonderful day of exploring the beautiful East Tennessee mountains.

About Us

Hello Guests,

We are Ken and Viki Ingram, your hosts at the Lodge at Tellico. We are thrilled to embark on this new adventure and share our passion for hospitality with you.

As a married couple from Florida, we have always cherished the great outdoors. From surfing the waves to hiking trails, biking through scenic routes, dirt bike riding, and chasing waterfalls, we find joy in exploring the wonders that nature has to offer. Our love for adventure and discovery has led us to this new chapter in our lives.

Before becoming the proud owners of the Lodge at Tellico, Ken spent most of his professional career as a mortgage banker, while Viki dedicated her time to nursing. However, our hearts have always been in the hospitality industry. In our earlier years, we both worked in hotels and restaurants, and we have long dreamed of returning to this fulfilling line of work. The Lodge at Tellico presents the perfect opportunity for us to combine our experience, passion, and love for hosting guests in a beautiful setting.

We look forward to meeting you in person and ensuring that your stay at the Lodge at Tellico is nothing short of exceptional. Our goal is to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere where you can unwind, relax, and create lasting memories with your loved ones.

Until we have the pleasure of meeting you, we invite you to explore all that the Lodge at Tellico has to offer. Whether you’re here for a romantic getaway, a family vacation, or a solo retreat, we are committed to providing you with an unforgettable experience.

Warmest regards, Ken and Viki Ingram
