Mountain Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, 5000 sq feet (Sleeps 18)
Sitting at an elevation of 3,200 feet and overlooking Cold Mountain, this 5,000 square foot designer decorated mountain lodge serves as the central point for all the guests at East Fork Ranch. The home includes five bedrooms including two master suites, two spacious guest rooms and one “bunk” room (perfect for kids).
The Lodge includes 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.
The Lodge at East Fork Ranch is one of two different properties available to rent. Our other property, The Graves Cabin (Property 414732) is also located just next door and can sleep 8. Each can be rented out on an individual basis, however if you would like to reserve both properties for a corporate retreat or large family gathering please contact us and we will work with you to accommodate your plans.
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.

Great stay great people
Always amazing. Wouldn’t change a thing.
An amazing place that just kept delighting us!
It is as all others have said, the East Fork Ranch is an amazing place which exceeded our expectations. If a place can be better that it’s pictures this is that place. Our family had a wonderful week, we arrived the day after Christmas and were surprised and delighted to arrive to a house fully decorated including a beautiful 8 foot Christmas tree! Such a nice surprise!!! There were 15 of us and we all felt like we had plenty of space! The beds were very comfortable and we loved visiting the horse that is on property daily! If you are looking for a big place for your family or group, your search just ended..... just book it! A big thank you from our family!!!
Christmas was magical
This Home was absolutely a beautiful place for my family to spend Christmas in. From the comforts of home to the beautiful decor of stockings hung on large fireplace to the tree decorated beautifully we enjoyed our stay. You will not be disappointed staying at the lodge. We will return in the future.
Special, beautiful home and property
We loved everything about this home and have rented many homes for several years for large family gatherings. This one does not feel like a "rental" it is charming, cozy, quaint and so well appointed. The space was large enough for our group of 7 families with adults, seniors and children of all ages. We used both the cabin and lodge. The property manager and family were helpful for booking and onsite questions. It was truly magical and we hope to return. There was a lot of snow when we went and it made the property look like a winter wonderland! Our family will talk of East Fork Ranch fondly for many years to come, thank you for an outstanding stay and sharing your homes!
Awesome home and property!
East Fork Ranch is fabulous - a beautiful home on a gorgeous property. This is my second stay there and I hope to return again. Just perfect!
I know I've read this in many reviews, but the pictures truly do not do it justice. Beautiful property...very clean...everything you need and more. The "sister" property where they have an open building with cornhole and ping pong right on the river with a rope swing...awesome! My father-in-law and others fished on the ponds everyday. Easy day trips to Asheville, surrounding towns, and sliding rock! (So much fun). Fantastic hiking right from the property. My ONLY recommendation would be a new coffee grinder and knives with a better sharpener (as you will want to cook in this well-equipped, high-end kitchen). Overall, 5 stars isn't enough!
Guests will also have the use of the adjacent Cold Mountain property which is approximately 200 acres. Guests can enjoy fishing in a stocked trout pond or try fly fishing in the clear 1.5 miles of the East Fork of the Pigeon River that runs through the property. East Fork Ranch is 11 miles to Waynesville, 30 miles to Asheville, and 6 miles to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Hiking trails and fire pit are both onsite. Golf is located next door at beautiful Springdale Country Club.
