This cozy, rustic lodge was built in 1915 of native hemlock and constructed in board and batten style. While the infrastructure has been updated to include central heat and modern plumbing the Lodge retains an old-fashioned charm that reflects its mountain heritage.
Southern cuisine is our specialty, and innkeeper Anne Schwabland takes pride in creating meals that she describes as "southern mountain soul food with a gourmet twist." Breakfast is included in your stay, and you can work with Anne to design your group's meals in accordance with your tastes and budget. We are also vegetarian/vegan friendly.
In addition to serving traditional southern meals, we believe in supporting local art as a way to preserve mountain heritage. The artwork of North Carolina artists and crafters is part of our decor and also for sale, and we invite more area artists to book retreats or utilize our space to display and sell their work.
