Fodor's Review

You can have as much solitude or adventure as you want at this spacious cedar log cabin with stone fireplaces. The lodge, which sits on 83 acres midway between Brevard and Cashiers on a ridge that adjoins the Pisgah National Forest, offers horseback riding, hiking, fishing, and even an opportunity to gather berries, feed the goats, pan for gems, take guided trail rides, and try the 30-foot climbing wall or zip line. In the evening families gather around an open fire to

sing songs, square dance, and exchange stories. The lodge offers outdoor education programs for kids.
