About the property

5 Bedroom, 4 Full Bath, 1 Half Bath, Sleeps 20, 4 King Beds, 4 Queen Beds

Hidden Valley Lodge is a recently new property for Julie and I. Please see the neighboring Blue Moon Lodge (VRBO #492345) for current reviews of our other property.

Welcome to the relaxing side of the Smokey's!

Hidden Valley Lodge is centrally located in a quiet mountain valley tucked between many popular cities and attractions. It's unique location allows you to enjoy the beauty and tranquility of the Smokey Mountains while being just a short drive from Asheville, Waynesville, Cherokee, Great Smokey Mountain National Park and a multitude of hiking, rafting and outdoor activities.

This luxurious 3,900 sq. foot, 5 bedroom, 4-1/2 bath cabin is our newest addition to the vacation rental market. Located next door to the Blue Moon Lodge (VRBO #492345), this cabin accommodates a slightly smaller group while providing the same upscale log cabin experience. It boasts an impressive 4,000 sq. feet of covered porch with hot tub, 4 large King size bedrooms, one large bedroom with 2 sets of Queen over Queen bunk beds (suitable for adults), two plush living rooms, and a lower level game room.

The main level has a gourmet kitchen equipped with everything you'll need to cook that award winning meal for the entire group. The open kitchen/living room lets the cook be part of all the activity even while preparing their masterpiece! If grilling is your specialty, you'll love to be on cooking duty with our 5 burner propane grill (propane provided). With indoor seating for 16 and multiple outdoor tables, there's plenty of room for everyone to eat at the same time.

Head down to the lower level and let the fun begin! The game room is equipped with a ping pong table, air hockey table and card table. The lower gathering space has 3 full size couches, two of which are sleepers. There are plenty of board games, card games, movies and puzzles to entertain for hours!

If the inside space isn't enough, move on out to the 4,000+ sq. feet of covered porch. With breathtaking views of Crabtree Bald, hot tub, tons of rocking chairs, tables, hammocks, etc., you may not want to go back inside!

The location of this lodge allows you to enjoy the tranquility of the smoky mountains while still being close to Asheville, Waynesville and Maggie Valley. We are surrounded by a multitude of mountain activities such as hiking, zip lines, white water rafting, tubing, fishing, waterfalls, skiing, and elk viewing. The amazing Biltmore Mansion is only 35 miles away. Harrah's Cherokee Casino and Ocanaluftee Indian Village are within a scenic hour drive. You can also enjoy the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg, TN which can be reached in 1 1/2 hours.

Please note, this is our Christian family's home. We are very dedicated to keeping this lodge extremely well equipped and will continue to improve the amenities so that you will want to come back year after year. However, in order to do this, we need quality and like minded renters. If you are looking for a great home away from home, we'd love to share ours with you! If you're looking for a place to party, drink excessively, play loud music, let the kids run wild, or have a crazy uncle Bob that likes to shoot guns off the porch, please go ahead and mark this rental off your search!!

We are located in a quiet mountain community with many local residence. We STRICTLY enforce outside quiet hours of 10:00 pm to 7:00 am. Violation of this noise ordinance will result in loss of refundable damage deposit and immediate termination of your stay.

(Due to potential snow in the winter months, trip insurance and/or 4 wheel drive is highly recommended for winter rentals)

About Ryan Pownall

Julie and I love coming to the mountains with our four children, Noah, Christian, Anna and Ashlyn (pictured at nearby Hot Springs on the Appalachian Trail). We've been married for 18 years and plan on retiring in the mountains!

Ryan Pownall purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Ryan Pownall chose Clyde

Hidden Valley Lodge is a close duplicate of our other cabin, the Blue Moon Lodge. When it became available, we loved the opportunity to provide two cabins side by side. Having the two cabins will allow slightly larger groups a place to stay next to each other. It also allows for youth groups to have a boys and girls cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

The lodge provides a great place to escape for that mid sized group. With 3,900 sq. feet of indoor and 4,000 sq. feet of outdoor living space, these midsize groups will have all kinds of room to spread out!

A Vacation Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful visit from this amazing cabin with all of my family! The cabin was very spacious and clean, easily accomodating 3 families. Kitchen was gorgeous and we definitely enjoyed our time cooking together inside and out. The upper porch is where we spent most of our time, rocking, enjoying a beautiful view of the mountains and catching up! The kids enjoyed the ping pong and air hockey tables, and, of course...the hot tub! The only recommendation for the owners, would be functioning a/c downstairs, and maybe a better router for wifi, if possible for that location. Otherwise, our stay was amazing and we would most certainly rent this cabin again !

Perfectly Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely Loved our Family Vacation. The house was spectacular. Views were gorgeous. We spent the majority of our time on the porch when we were at the house. We had plenty of space for everyone. Hidden Valley Lodge was just as it was described. Hosts, Andrew and Sarah are Awesome! Andrew welcomed us shortly after we arrived. He answered all of our questions and gave us lots of good information. We had 5 Wonderful Days with our children and grandchildren. Owner was wonderful about responding to our emails promptly. We definitely recommend Hidden Valley Lodge to anyone looking for beautiful mountain vacation!

Peaceful, relaxing, amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Rented for my daughter's wedding. Plenty of room, great recreational games and massive kitchens. Great place to tell the kids "no internet" and unplug. Peaceful place to unwind. Can't wait until we return.

Wonderful property! The perfect sized space for our large family vacation with amazing views! We enjoyed our exercise walks and jogs up and down the mountain. A serene mountain getaway trip that was much needed! Thank you!

This house is amazing! The views make one want to never leave! Unsure if the applainces were more intelligent than we renters or need some repair. I spoke personally with the owner regarding the above and we both had a good laugh, but he did state he would have everything checked! He was extremely pleasant and able to give me some information I was unable to retrieve offline. Our stay was for a simple sweet wedding, but this would be a wonderful getaway for any family, sleeping 10 adults and 8+ children easily! Look it up!

Great overall experience

The cabin was fantastic. My friends and I really enjoyed our stay. The owners called to check in with us and make sure that we were ok and let us know that they we could contact them if we needed anything. They had everything we needed.
