Sitting at an elevation of 3,200 feet, this 5,000 square foot designer decorated mountain lodge serves as the central point for all the guests at East Fork Ranch. The home boasts five bedrooms including two master suites, two spacious guest rooms and one “bunk” room (perfect for kids).
The Lodge at East Fork Ranch is one of four different properties available to rent. All four properties are listed on VRBO, and can be found by selecting the link at the bottom of this page. The properties at East Fork Ranch can be rented out on an individual basis, however if you would like to reserve all four houses for a corporate retreat or large family gathering Please contact us and we will work with you to accommodate your plans.
The Lodge has a huge, open kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a Franklin stove surrounded by river rock, and a hand built, rustic wooden dinning table for breaking bread with family and friends. The Great Room is adorned with comfortable designer furnishings and dominated by an impressive stone hearth and fireplace. The gathering front porch of the Lodge is well equipped with comfortable rocking chairs and an all-encompassing view of the property. On the level below the porch resides a sitting area, fire pit and stone barbecue for the preparation of a multitude of outdoor culinary delights. And on starry, starry nights, the kids will love catching fire flies in Mason jars or roasting marshmallow's and sitting around the campfire watching the flames dance in the cool, mountain breezes.
Western North Carolina is a paradise in so many ways. So much to do – so little time! Just look around and take in all the mountain wonders that abound here in the shadow of Cold Mountain and the Pisgah National Forest. This is truly God’s country in so many respects. The abundant wildlife, the rolling topography of the land, the rushing streams and rivers – all beckon those weary with the demands of city life – to sit still and take in a deep breath of clean, cool mountain air.
It is here, a midst the mountain laurel, Hemlock and Maple, here along the wooded walking trails, here at the side of a placid fishing pond or a rushing river, here under the evening stars and within the sounds of a crackling fire that you and your closest friends and family will remember, reflect and resolve that while you may travel back home, you will never truly leave this place.
