Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Lewdog Lodge is located in a rhododendron forest close to Grandfather Mtn. and the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is very private & peaceful surrounded by large hardwoods, rhododendrons & mountain laurel. Everything you need to have a wonderful time is right here at the cabin. Our cabin has been recently renovated inside and out.

We are conveniently located to local attractions such as: Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns, Linville Falls, Linville Gorge, Tweetsie Railroad, Blue Ridge Parkway, Beech Mtn., Sugar Mtn., Southern Highland Craft Guild Shop on the Parkway, etc. There are lots of great hiking trails close by. We are also within a 15 minute drive to Banner Elk, 30 minute drive to Blowing Rock or Boone, 20 minutes from Valle Crucis. Ski resorts are 15 minutes away.

On the weekends in the summer & fall especially, there are arts & craft and bluegrass festivals close by. Excellent restaurants from expensive to McDonalds are within 5 to 15 minutes away. There are lots to do including just hanging out on the deck and watching the changing weather on Grandfather Mtn. Grocery stores are less than 10 minutes in either direction. There is a hospital and YMCA across the highway.

About Judy Jones

We have been coming to the mountains of North Carolina for many years. We love to hike and there are many great trails right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. When we found our cabin we were so excited. It is just what we wanted.

Judy Jones purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Judy Jones chose Linville

It is the prettiest area in the North Carolina Mountains. Close to all the Blue Ridge Mountains & the Smoky Mountains have to offer, quaint mountain towns of Linville, Banner Elk, Blowing Rock & Boone, ski slopes nearby, good hiking trails, wonderful restaurants, great shopping, etc.

What makes this cabin unique

Our pretty view of Grandfather Mountain; it is constantly changing depending on the weather. Because we are at an elevation of approximately 3800 feet, it rarely gets above 80 degrees in the summer. In the mornings & evenings you frequently need a sweater. We live in a warm climate that is very hot in the summer and rarely snows in the winter. This location affords us a break from the heat in the summer and lots of snow in the winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for such a relaxing weekend. It is so peaceful here and I know why you love it so. We hiked to Linville Falls and it was beautiful. God bless you both!

It was great to return to Lewdog Lodge~*

  • 5 of 5

Lewdog Lodge was, once again, the perfect place for our family of 5 to come together and share love, meals, hiking, gaming and the unique spirit and view.

Peaceful mountain cabin with beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is very peaceful and cozy. The view from the deck is beautiful. The lower level is accessed via a very steep and narrow ladder-type staircase. Anyone with mobility issues or of larger size would have difficulty getting up and down the stairs. The lower level is well-suited as a sleeping area for children and young adults. If you arrive after dark for check-in, I would highly recommend a flashlight. The entrance to the cabin is on a wooded gravel path that leads down to a set of slate steps that are difficult to navigate in the dark especially with standard rolling luggage. There is, however, a motion activated floodlight that can be turned on once you access the cabin for the first time. Overall, it is a lovely well-appointed cabin with beautiful views.

Great way to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Mountain-side cabin with great views. My kids loved having their own level and bathroom. They went up and down the steps 100 times. We ate dinner on the deck for dinner. We went to Grandfather Mountain (15 min) and Roan Mountain (25 min) and had a wonderful time experiencing nature and fresh air. Make sure you get there in the daylight. It would be tough to find otherwise, the roads up the hill are small and not well marked. The view is totally worth it once you find it. The owner was very helpful and easy to contact.

Stunning Views of Grandfather Mountain in a family friendly cabin

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the LewDog lodge and would definitely come back again! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals and the furnishings were very comfortable....but the VIEW....oh my goodness....the view was the BEST part of our stay. The entire east side of the cabin is all windows and the sunrises were glorious. Even one evening the colors fro the sunset reflected back on the clouds hovering over Grandfather Mountain. It was spectacular. We had made reservations with the intent to ski most of the long weekend but the weather was too warm. We did spend part of one day at Sugar Mountain. Its an easy 15-20min drive. Since we didn't get out ski time, we instead ventured out to Linville Caverns (our son had never been in a cave), Linville Falls and drove on the Blue Ridge Parkway to see the Linn Cove Viaduct. We spent an entire day on Grandfather Mountain enjoying the views from the bridge and hiked all the way up to Attic Window Peak (the trail is not for the faint of heart!!!). I didn't realize until we were home and my photos were blown up on the computer screen that we could have actually SEEN the Swinging Bridge from LewDog Lodge had we used binoculars. Pretty cool. On the way out we stopped at Wiseman's View of Linville Gorge: BREATHTAKING. All in all it was a fabulous trip and The LewDog Lodge is a fabulous place to stay! Highly recommend!!
