King Lodge has become one the most popular homes in our Yonder luxury portfolio, and is quickly becoming one of the most requested! It is not surprising when you put a terrific home together with simply spectacular views & amenities.
As for King Lodge, this mountain chateau is located on 10+ private acres that is on the top of one of the rolling hillsides with near 360' views to the surrounding mountain ranges; 35-40 minutes west of downtown Asheville. 45 minutes to Asheville regional airport, and 35 minutes to the gates of Biltmore Estate. You are also an easy 15 minutes from downtown Waynesville.
It is very easy to access the home, via only paved roads. The home affords year round access, does not require 4-wheel drive, and is not off any steep rural mountain roads. The home is situated on 10+ acres of mountain property, affording private, safe places for kids to play & explore, adults to take a hike, and everyone to relax & enjoy the unreal views. The driveway affords plenty of parking for large groups.
Events are welcome, and this estate affords plenty of room to host a truly special destination wedding.
Get ready to be absolutely "wowed" by this 10,000 sq. Ft. + (that includes converted garage game rooms) spectacular modern, contemporary mountain style country chateau. With soaring vistas, high ceilings, vaulted spaces, tile and hard wood floors, high end finishes, and much more; you will immediately feel at home at King Lodge. (That is of course if you can tear yourself away from the views & soaking in the spectacle of the Blue Ridge mountains, & actually venture inside!) the outdoor spaces, including an expansive upper deck and covered patio area, along with full-length lower level patio as well, will keep you outdoors a lot!
The great room, with stone fireplace, and fully equipped, simply stunning gourmet kitchen, is where everyone will want to gather to enjoy their time together inside the house when cooking and sharing meals. But, the home also affords a variety of options for having fun too! Custom 50's Diner, pool table and game room, big screen TV's, wet bar, workout room, garage game room, hot tub, and more! Also, on the flip-side, if you need some "alone time", there is plenty of space inside and out to find your own serenity. The bedrooms are large & this home has plenty of space for families and lots of kids. For couples traveling to "get-a-way" there are 4 king beds in the bedrooms, and 7 of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms too.
There are simply a virtually unending plethora of outside porches, decks, and patios for ultimate outdoor relaxation.
You have a converted garage game room with ping pong, foosball, darts, & cornhole. The lower level game room has a fully equipped kitchen, arcade games, a pool table, board & card games, with large screen TV and an extensive movie collection for hours of enjoyment and relaxation.
Kids love getting out in and around the expansive yard & explore the other rolling outdoor areas. The expansive decks are just off the kitchen/great rm & out the side door, and off the lower terrace level. All of these afford additional outdoor space to relax & unwind. While everyone enjoys the outdoor spaces & hot tub, you can pull up a chair and take in the view from the deck as well, (the long range views are spectacular!!), observe the night as it fills with stars, and watch the fire flies come out to play in your backyard. Or, fire up the fire pit to toast some s'mores and share stories, well into the star-filled nights.
Take a seat and enjoy the sound of nature and the serenity in your own private paradise at the top of the world. There is also an expansive pasture-esque, rolling expanse of hillside for the kids to run around & play! King Lodge offers lots of acreage for nature walks and exploring, and other exercise on the mountain without leaving the property.
You are just minutes from Americas favorite scenic byway, the Blue Ridge Parkway, motorcycle touring, biking, hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, zip lining, Segway tour…just about any outdoor activity!

Wonderful Property and views, very spacious
The property was wonderful, something to do for everyone, and the house was absolutely magnificent.
Lovely - Cold New Years!
We had 16 people here for New Years, 6 adults and 10 kids ranging in age from 7-18. The house holds a crowd well and is well stocked in the kitchen. We cooked in 6 nights out of 7. The game areas are nice and the basement area was awesome to send all the teenagers to. The views are spectacular. The beds are comfortable. Small issues with the door handles not closing and locking properly, and the outdoor firepit is gas and never really lit correctly. It was a minor flaw and easily overlooked. We had an issue with the hot tub and they had someone out the next day to fix it, great service on a holiday weekend. I wish they had a map of the 11 acres in the booklet at the house, a lot of the land is fenced off and we were not sure where we could walk that was on the property. We called to ask, but the person answering the phone was unsure also. The house was very clean upon arrival. I would definitely recommend King Lodge as a relaxing getaway. It’s close to Cataloochie Ski and was not a bad drive to Asheville. We went to the Grove Park for New Years, and into Asheville again for the Biltmore and an Escape Game.
Thank you for your 5 star review of King Lodge! We are thrilled to hear that you and your group had a fun and memorable experience. We certainly appreciate your feedback, as it helps us improve our customer service and guests' overall experience. We will pass along your recommendations to the owners. We are also happy to hear that communication with our staff was clear and that your issues were tended to quickly. Let us know if you would like Yonder to help plan your next mountain vacation!
Wonderful place for large family gathering.
We really enjoyed our experience here. There are so many fun spaces for play - for multiple generations (in our case, we ranged from 6 months to 89 years old). Of particular note is the 1950s style diner - complete with pinball machine & a counter top & booths perfectly suited for an afternoon ice cream social! And it is so spacious that it easily accodated all the family groupings. The views are spectacular. And the questions that arose were all quickly addressed by Yonder staff.
We appreciate your kind review and are so glad that you enjoyed the property. The Diner is a very unique space in the house and perfect for an ice cream social!! Hope to host you again in the future!
Gorgeous, spacious property
Access and service was great, our group loved our time there.
Thank you for your review! We're glad that you enjoyed your stay and hope to have to you back again in the future!
Breath taking Mountain Views!
We came to King Lodge to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with all our family! When we arrived and turned in the driveway all I could say was WOW! Beautiful property! We had a large group & the home is very family friendly. My husband is the chocolate shake maker for the grandkids and really enjoyed the Coca cola diner for that!! Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!
When all you can say is "WOW"; that usually elicits a solid "5-Star" review. However, having hosted guests in our Yonder destination vacation homes for over 10 years now, you learn that some folks just do not give out "5-Star" reviews no matter how awesome a home is, or even if their reaction is simply "WOW". :)
We appreciated hosting this family, and King Lodge definitely provides tons of activities, perks & amenities that many homes do not. There is literally something for all ages to enjoy; even making chocolate shakes in the authentic Coca Cola Diner!
Come experience the "wow" of King Lodge for yourself.
Spacious with breathtaking views!
Beautiful and well maintained and exactly as described!
