Blue Moon is a stunning 4,200+ sq. foot, 6 bedroom, 4 full bath and 2 half bath lodge with over 4,000 sq. feet of covered porch located in the beautiful Hidden Valley community. It sleeps 26 in beds. With 5 of the bedrooms having king size beds, full dressers and large closets, it's perfect for large groups or multiple families to share and still have plenty of private space. The 'Eagles Nest' is the perfect space for all the kids. Two queen over queen bunk beds, two twin over twin bunk beds a half bath and a TV with DVD player will have them fighting over who gets to stay up there! We have recently installed separate A/C units for each level, so you can now control the temperature of each level independently.

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 6 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 pool table, ping pong, darts and foosball. The main gathering space has 3 full size couches, a kitchenette with full size refrigerator, stove, microwave and corner bar. There are plenty of board games, card games and movies 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, games, etc., you may not want to go back inside! Start a camp fire at the large fire pit and let the stories begin.

Looking for that special mountain wedding? We have partnered with our friends at Hidden Valley Farm to help make that happen. The farm is located at the entrance of our division and provides a beautiful backdrop for your special day.

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 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 Waterrock Knob). We've been married for 17 years and plan on retiring at Blue Moon!

Ryan Pownall purchased this lodge in 2013

Why Ryan Pownall chose Smoky Mountains

We fell in love with this lodge because of the large rooms and huge covered decks. It will allow our entire family to get together even after the kids grow and start families of their own. It's away from it all, but close to everything!! The stress of everyday life just melted away the minute we stepped onto the porch!

What makes this lodge unique

The large size of all of the bedrooms is something that we couldn't find anywhere else. That combined with the 4,000 sf of covered porch made this lodge unforgettable!

Great!

  • 4 of 5

Great! Well equipped and great kitchen and view. Internet wasn't very good (slow & difficult to connect) is our only negative.

Beauiful home, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, has a beautiful view, huge, with the most well-stocked kitchen of any house we've rented. The owner was great to work with. It is fairly remote, so if you're wanting to be 5 minutes from townthis won't work. But for us, it was perfect. We had a great family retreat and enjoyed the solitude of the place. It was a great weekend. The only con: wi-fi was pretty spotty.

Amazing time with family & friends

  • 5 of 5

The home is more beautiful than the pictures. We will definitely be back and wouldn't plan to stay any where else. So much to explore and experience with Asheville being only a short drive away. The view was beyond my expections and the house very accommodating. Thanks for letting us visit your lodge.

Beautiful cabin style lodge!

  • 4 of 5

The lodge was super large and more than enough space for our group of 13. The wrap around porches had lots of seating spaces and the views were great. The lodge looked fresh and new. We did notice that several things needed more attention prior to our arrival, such as:

1. Dishwasher was moldy inside

2. Garbage can was filthy

3. Towels were old and stained

We had a great time, overall. The lodge is located on top of a hill. The roads are winding and narrow. The last part of the climb is a graveled road. Everything is a good distance drive from here due to the roads. The upside is that it is peaceful and quiet.

The Blue Moon is just as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

Our crew consisted of 10 adults and 9 kids ranging from 6 to 15 years old. The Lodge provided an excellent setting for mingling and running. Absolutely perfect setting for a family gathering.

The ride in from I-40 was a wonderful example of NC mountain farmland and high end rural living.

The Lodge was spotless when we arrived and everything worked. The interior is appointed very nicely and the appliances were very modern and spacious. -2- refrigerators and a beverage fridge for overflow. There was an abundance of towels and kitchen was well stocked for eating and food prep needs. Three coffee makers at the ready.

Kids would've voted hot tub as their favorite spot, testing the towel abundance statement but there was a washer/dryer available to keep clothes and towels fresh.

Adults favored the spacious porch and rocking chairs. My sons in law and I are grill nuts so the virtually new grill was used regularly and there were spare propane tanks available if needed.

Bedrooms are large and private. Hard to get people up in the morning. Put all kids upstairs in the Eagle's Nest.Worked just fine.

Following offered as helpful commentary not criticism:

Drive slowly and carefully up the mountain. It is a narrow road and meeting another vehicle is a daunting experience.

The last 600 feet or so, Blue Moon Lane, is gravel/dirt. Go slow and hold on.

Plan your parking strategically. We had -6- vehicles (It's America) and it seemed that the one we needed was always blocked in.

The couple who are available to help are very friendly and helpful.

Groceries are thirty minutes away so carry everything in that you can.

Bring plenty of ice. Refrigerators have ice makers but you will need more.

There is a noise ordinance. We were admonished a couple of times for excess. Kids in hot tub and yours truly blowing the bugle for dinner.

In summary, great location for a family gathering or business conference. The three day visit met or exceeded all our expectations.
