Affordable Family Friendly Nature Get-Away on 300 Acre Retreat

Bedrooms 1
Property type lodge


About the property

10 beds private bunk room, nature lover's paradise

You get all the benefits of the outdoors without actually having to camp. Take advantage of trails, creeks, campfire circle, gas grill, pond, and so much more. Ride a horse or pony, or maybe rent a kayak to fish or float on the pond and forget the rest of the world exists. The ultimate get away!

This private room with private entrance on the ground level walk out level of the lodge has 10 beds, 1 bathroom (with 2 showers), full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, outdoor seating, gas grill, campfire pit, shared kitchen access, trails, creeks, pond, abundant wildlife, friendly dogs, horses, and loving outdoor cats all on 300 acres. This room is affordably priced at $75 for a 5 person minimum and only $10/person nightly for additional guests in your party. This room can be combined with other rooms for a larger group.

Within about 3 miles of Spruce Pine, NC where you'll find restaurants, groceries, gas, antiques, and crafts; 8 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway and gem mining; about an hour from ski resorts. It's a very rural area in the center about an hour either way to Asheville, NC, Boone, NC, or Johnson City, TN; also a midpoint between Mt. Mitchell, Grandfather Mountain, and Roan Mountain.

Area activities include hiking, waterfalls, skiiing, gem mining, antiquing, golf, whitewater rafting, tubing, zip lining, and horseback riding. On-site private horseback trail rides, pony rides, and lessons can be reserved in advance through the separately operated stable on the property. They do have a 200 pound weight limit.

Other things to note:

Dogs are accepted with prior approval for a pet fee. Must be leashed when outside to avoid confusion with horses, etc. and crated if left unattended indoors.

Snow in winter is possible, but not guaranteed. 4WD or AWD is recommended in winter.

The driveway is a half mile gravel road. Please drive slowly. 5 - 10 mph is the recommended speed.

There is some overhead noise as the room is under the common area and shared kitchen which is a hardwood floor.

The property is family friendly in a wholesome environment.

Great central location!

  • 4 of 5

With a family of six, finding accommodations can be challenging. We decided to try this one room 'lodge'. The 'bunk room' contains 5 bunk beds, 4 of which are metal with thin mattresses and one regular wooden bunk bed with thicker mattresses. One bathroom with 2 toilets & 2 showers. There is a fridge and coffee maker. No sink, no stove or microwave. A plug-in air conditioner only. One small table with two old glider rockers and various chairs throughout. There is no space to 'relax' other than the shared living room & kitchen upstairs.

We learned that with 4 kids, we would like to rent an entire space to be able to relax, play cards, cook out, etc. without feeling like we are intruding or imposing on others. This bunk room is a great affordable space on beautiful property. It is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, about 1.5 hour from Asheville and easy to navigate to/from no matter where you roam.
