Excellent location for a base camp for some great trout fishing in Western North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at the Red Bridge Lodge and our group (Northern Kentucky Fly Fishers) absolutely love it. It offers trout fishing in Spring Creek right behind the house, which is ideal for those that cannot get around well. The newly installed steps make accessing the stream very easy. From this location we venture out to several different streams within a 2 hour drive. The kitchen area is my favorite part of the house, large enough to allow us all to gather for meals and review the days catch and make up a few lies of course. The firepit by the creek, has to be my second favorite part. Each night we would make a raging fire and check out the night skies looking at all of the constellations with the warmth of the fire and crackling of fresh cut wood right in front of us. I would highly recommend this property for a future stay by your family. I know we will be back again next year for our fourth stay.

The house was spacious and cozy. Me, my girlfriend and her family really enjoyed our stay and what the area had to offer. The hiking on the AT was breathtaking. Thank you so much for offering up.

Mountain Town Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Hot Springs at the Red Bridge Lodge. It was the perfect spot for 3 couples and a handful of kids and was just what we needed to get away together to ring in the New Year. The town is small and very welcoming. The home is full of charm and well equipped, and the setting along the stream makes the back yard an idyllic escape (and the perfect spot for a NYE polar bear plunge, if that's your thing) The local Iron Horse Station restaurant was very good, complete with local live music, and the Ingles grocery in Marshall has a nice selection of fresh meat, produce, and beverages (about 20 mins away). We spent a day in Asheville, as well (about 50 mins away), to take in the city life. The Asheville visit was fun, but we were excited to get back to Hot Springs to recharge with a quieter, slower paced weekend. When the time came, we found ourselves reluctant to leave, and already looking for an excuse to get back.

Outdoor activities are abundant including rafting, kayaking, hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, fly fishing, smallmouth fishing, muskie fishing, horseback riding and most can be done without getting into a car. The town is also located about 45 minutes from the vibrant downtown of Asheville, featuring many outstanding restaurants, art galleries, live music venues and more.
