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 Clyde

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!

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Blue Mood Lodge! Our five-family party with small children had plenty of room to spread out. We appreciated the large and comfortable king bedrooms and the kids loved the Eagle's Nest upstairs. The beds and linens were comfortable, including the mattresses on the bunk beds. It was nice having two living and kitchen areas for adults to convene in the evening and for families to play during the day. The huge deck with a beautiful view and was it's own dining and play area (although with no gates and open-slat stairs, young ones and toddlers do need close supervision). We enjoyed 'Smores around the fire pit and the kids loved rolling and running down the hill. The hot tub, air hockey table, pool table, and Foosball table were all in great condition. We appreciated being within an hour's drive of most locations we had on our list to visit and 30 minutes from grocery stores. Reception and Wifi were spotty, but honestly our family was too busy enjoying our stay to notice. Heating controls on each level also made our stay more comfortable. Everything was clean and in working order upon arrival. We highly recommend staying here!

Two helpful notes:

1) Renters are responsible to wash, dry, and put away all dishes and to haul all garbage to a facility several miles down the road. We called for directions to the trash collection site and tried using GPS/ GoogleMaps but still had some trouble finding the location. It may be helpful to ask for more detailed instructions.

2) Disposables are not provided (toiler paper, hand soap, dish and dishwasher soap, laundry soap).

The property was great! The house was awesome! Definitely enough room for large group!

  • 5 of 5

Everything in the house was super clean and neat. The road to the cabin was gravel/dirt with a few potholes. We arrived at night so that was a little scary. The only issue (and really it wasn’t that big of a deal) was the trash situation. We didn’t make it to the dump in time so we had to pack the trash out with us when we were leaving. Overall though, the place was fantastic and we would definitely recommend it to our friends!! Thanks so much for everything!!

Perfect for our group with a couple of glitches **

  • 4 of 5

Could not get the TV's to respond to our request for news and network stations. We spotted a mouse both Friday night and Saturday scurrying across the kitchen floor. We don't panic easily, so we put all our snack food in the oven and rolled up towels under our bedroom doors.

We believe he's been there for a while. Didn't help to make an impression !! Otherwise all else was great. Big enough to accommodate and cozy enough to enjoy. (p.s. I went to close the bedroom blind and it came down without a pull. Needs to be fixed.) ~~Halperin

great mountain home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 22 comfortably enjoyed this home! It had everything we needed and was perfect for a weekend getaway! The hot tub and fire pit were great additions to the pool table and air hockey activities! We would definitely do a group gathering here again!

Only complaint would be the way trash has to be disposed of at end of stay- it has to be driven to a dump which isn't the best way to end a vacation. Also, the dump is closed on Sundays so we had to drive our trash home with us.

Beautiful home.

  • 3 of 5

Only 2 things we wish we had known. Soap for the bathroom sinks and how rough the road to the cabin was. You need a SUV. Did the breweries and spent most of the time at the cabin playing game.
