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!

Great Cabin, close to all the places we wanted to visit!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Thanksgiving at this beautiful cabin and created a lifetime of memories!

We had a large group of 8 adults and 7 kids (ages 8-14) and the cabin had plenty of room to spread out. Main floor had 3 bedrooms with King beds (we put the grandparents there), Lower level had 2 bedrooms with King Beds, plus two pull out sofas (we didn't need those) and upper level had the Bunk room. Two of the bathrooms were also oversized with 3 sinks which is great for big crowds.

The kids (and adults) loved the game rooms and there were many games of air hockey and pool played (and a little bit of arguing about who won).

It was a quick trip into a couple of nearby towns like Waynesville and less than hour to Asheville. We actually spent more time at this cabin than our previous trips because it was just nice to hang out, eat, play games and relax in the hottub.

The owner and the onsite guy were both great to deal with. As mentioned in the listing the WiFi is slow (typical of mountain properties) and the driveway would be treacherous if it snowed and you didn't have 4 wheel drive.

Overall, a fabulous trip for our family and we have already recommended to a couple of our friends!

Wonderful lodge in beautiful NC mtns

  • 5 of 5

Blue Moon Lodge was a fantastic home base for our large group. The spatious house had everything we needed -clean and nicely located to many outdoor activities. Also it was just a 30 minute drive to Asheville and the Biltmore estate. There were only a couple of items that need to be addressed which would make a future stay more perfect (1) the gas grill would not heat higher than 200 degrees and (2) the lighting in all the bedrooms was inadequate. All in all, however, Blue Moon Lodge is a fabulous mountain retreat!

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.
