Chapel Hill lodge description

Our guests are awed by the beautiful Lodge on Pickard's Mountain. We host wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, reunions, business retreats, basketball and football getaways and a host of other truly special events. The Lodge is available for a minimum of three nights with full access to the property or for daily rentals for corporate meetings/events.

Fabulous stone fireplaces in the great room with huge glass doors lead to private walkways throughout the property. Cross the bridge to the Saltwater pool, relax on the slate patios or on your private balcony. Our guests enjoy coffee or a cocktail while they watch the sun rise or set. Or you can curl up with a book in a private area on the property.

A private, detached guest wing houses two bedrooms, both with queen beds and private bathrooms. The master has a king bed, private bath (with soaking tub), private balcony and a spiral staircase leading to the outdoor patio and pool.

The master is adjacent to the fourth bedroom which has two twin beds, a private bath and staircase leading to the fourth level reading nook and ladder to the turret. Bedroom five and six are in a private wing of the Lodge and have queen beds and private baths.

The commercial grade kitchen has double dishwashers and ovens, Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer, three sinks and expansive Italian Marble counter tops. Our on site Property Manager can arrange grocery delivery, catering and full event planning as well as transportation, local farm visits and reservations at world class restaurants.

The amazing underground cave offers a fireplace, wet bar, home theater, pool table, wine cellar and exercise room and can host your entire party plus other guests in a very special space. Head up to the 4th level turret at sunset for a cocktail while enjoying the 360 degree view.

              About the owner: When we retired from the corporate world we wanted to use our 30 years of Corporate Hospitality to offer spectacular properties to discerning travelers. Truly memorable events deserve amazing facilities and The Lodge at Pickard's Mountain is certainly amazing. Hiking the trails, watching the sunrise from the private balcony or slate patio, visiting with your guests in the cave or great room or enjoying the sunset from the upper meadow are all possible at the Lodge. We enjoy making your stay at on the Mountain spectacular in every respect.

              Why the Owner Chose Chapel Hill:
              Chapel Hill is the most beautiful place in the Piedmont. This home offers the best of the mountains while still being convenient to everything the area offers.
