The Lodge is a unique, spectacular mountaintop haven, crowning the 215 acre Bearwallow Mountain Ranch. At 4000 feet the temperature and pleasant breeze offers the ultimate mountain experience. Enjoy the stunning mountain views and acres of manicured meadows surrounding the lodge. Amble along the miles of roadways, paths, and marked hiking trails on the Ranch enjoying the forest, landscape, and clear mountain air. Hidden down a 3/4 mile private rustic drive and far from neighbors, The Lodge is the perfect secluded haven yet accessible to all the amazing attractions of this beautiful area.
Temperatures are very cool at night and the daytime stays comfortable and 6-8 degrees cooler than the lower elevations of Asheville and Hendersonville. 15 miles or less to Biltmore house, Chimney Rock, Asheville, Lake Lure, and the Blue Ridge Parkway make it ideal for taking in the surrounding area and then sinking back into the quiet comfort and peace of this amazing Ranch.
The Lodge is a vintage, great-timbered apple barn lovingly converted into a modern retreat that retains its mountain heritage and charm. Reclaimed wide plank flooring, historic brick, massive wooden beams reaching up to a 27 foot ceiling, and touches of days gone by offer the sense of gentler time. Yet along with the past, you will find that The Lodge's rustic elegance comes with all the modern conveniences.
Every chef's desire is here in the 30 foot galley style kitchen. With 12 foot chef's counter - it makes cooking for a crowd a breeze and plenty of room for help in the kitchen. Move the kitchen outside to your 6 foot grill area.
The timber frame interior with rough-sawn cedar walls, antique brick, and spacious living area provides for a large number of people but with multiple groupings of intimate seating. Italian leather furniture and sprawling custom seating appoint the living space with elegance and comfort.
The eight bedrooms are thoughtfully furnished and decorated with your comfort in mind. Antique floors, warm woods, and giant -beamed ceilings offer character to each bedroom. Outdoor living is at its ultimate at The Lodge.
