My family and friends live in Jupiter FL and we were in a mandatory evacuation zone for Hurricane Irma 9/2017. We loaded up 5 cars with 13 adults, 5 children, 1 infant and 4 pets and headed north towards Georgia. There were no hotels available anywhere! So.... I called my friend who owns the Westgate Lodge in Oakridge TN to see if there were 5 rooms available. They only had 2 rooms available so we booked them and headed for TN. By the time we arrived (19+ hours later OUCH), Westgate was able to get us all 5 rooms! The property managers personally stopped by to be sure we had everything we needed. We ended up staying 1 week and made the best out of the last moment trip. The children swam in the pool, fished in the creek behind the buildings, hiked on the trails across the street! The cleaning staff was great, and the property is well maintained. And it gets BETTER! When we went into the office to check out, the property managers asked us to sign some FEMA forms and that the cost of the stay would be paid for by FEMA. Westgate Lodge saved our family and we will be forever grateful for all they did! Home away from home!
