Welcome to Royal Mountain Lodge, a luxury retreat fit for royalty offering “the best view in Fannin County”, according to many locals and all who stay here. Boasting majestic views of the big waters of Lake Blue Ridge, the marina, and the dam with a backdrop of layers and layers of the Blue Ridge Mountains, this luxurious Blue Ridge cabin is sure to please even the most discerning of guests.
Nature's Colorful Palette
Viewing God's handiwork from this royal vantage point will leave you breathless - from stunning rainbows after a thunderstorm, beautiful snowfall on the mountain landscape during the winter months, to the stunning array of fall color during the autumn months, and the rebirth of the oak and dogwood trees during the neon-green spring months, the colorful palate of nature will come alive for you. Featuring a 2-story window prow, Royal Mountain Lodge brings nature's beauty inside offering you an idyllic blend of refinement, recreation, relaxation, and rustic elegance that we embrace.
Sip your coffee in the outdoor living areas overlooking serene mountain and lake views, greeting the morning with the chirping birds. Plan your day of adventure or shopping from this supremely located lodge, as you are within 20 minutes of Historic Downtown Blue Ridge enjoying specialty boutiques, antique shops, art galleries, and restaurants.
For the adventure lover, hiking trails, geocache adventures, tubing and kayaking are less than 10 minutes from lake activities in Morganton, and about 30 minutes to river activities. Experience the crystal clear waters of Lake Blue Ridge on a pontoon boat rental from the Marina - be sure to bring a picnic basket!
In close proximity to Crooked Creek Cabin and Blue Ridge Lake Cottage, Royal Mountain Lodge is ideally located in Fannin County close to grocery shopping and Downtown Blue Ridge. Outdoor activities on Lake Blue Ridge are within 10-15 minutes at Morganton Point and the Lake Blue Ridge Marina. Enjoy hikes at the Swinging Bridge over the Toccoa River within half an hour away.
Favorite Ways to Dine In (or Out)
In the cool of the evening, enjoy a glass of wine and hors d'oeuvres as you watch the sun slip behind the layers of Blue Ridge mountains reflecting radiant colors of orange, pink, and red on the lake. Those who look to cook will thoroughly enjoy the fully-stocked gourmet kitchen featuring a 6-burner gas stove, double oven, and an 8-ft. granite countertop island for prep work and presentation. A gas grill is just steps away on the covered porch with more dining seating for 6. Mouthwatering local produce at nearby farmer's markets and grass-fed beef from markets in Blue Ridge, will make any meal exceptional. Dining and feasting is a special event at the table set for 10 with a beautiful mountain ambiance and long-range views.
If you want to keep that kitchen clean and uncluttered, then head out to eat! If you don't want to head into Downtown Blue Ridge where delectable restaurants abound, we love Cucina Rustica and La Pizzeria located just 10 minutes from the house. Great food, nice ambiance, and close proximity make this place a must. But, if you want to go further into town, you cannot go wrong with any restaurant in Blue Ridge, even for the foodie lovers.
Evening Entertainment in House
After dinner and after the sun sinks behind the mountains, head downstairs to the terrace level and snuggle in on the sumptuous leather furnishings and watch a movie on the big screen TV, or challenge your friends and family to a friendly game of foosball. A Pinball machine always brings out the competitive spirit in everyone! Or if its privacy you crave, choose a book to read from the extensive library offered in walls of bookshelves.
At the end of a glorious day, sink into a luxurious pillowtop mattress and let our luxury linens caress you in 5 spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. On three different levels, you will find the privacy you crave in your own Suite. Comfortably sleeping 12 guests, Royal Mountain Lodge provides the ideal setting for family gatherings, couples retreats, a special girls' weekend, or just a romantic getaway celebrating an anniversary.
Two upstairs Suites feature a separate built-in twin bed, perfect for little ones who want to sleep close to their parents. From every bedroom and living area in this luxurious lodge, you will bask in the beauty of the Blue Ridge mountains and Lake Blue Ridge.
Situated with a northwestern vantage point on a ridgetop, every sunset is different than the evening before. At night the stars are so bright, you feel as though you could reach out and touch them as you watch for frequent falling stars. Every season, every day at Royal Mountain Lodge will leave a lasting impact on your heart.
