Detailed Description

Conveniently located 10 miles from Cherokee NC and Bryson City NC; this very unique North Carolina Mountain Cabin was originally built to be a school house and now serves as an excellent place to host larger families while visiting the Smokies! You will most certainly find our rustic farmhouse style lodging peaceful and relaxing! As you begin the 3 mile drive from Smoky Mountain Country Club, and “civilization”, up the winding gravel mountain road you can let all of your cares disappear. Once you pass the gates and arrive on the property, you will emerge out of the morning mountain fog and overhead trees to the delightful opening on which the property rests. Finished stretching your legs and taking in the mountain views? Head on inside!

The Upper Level has a wheelchair accessible front entrance. As you enter we hope you enjoy the signature Hive Lodge scent of local honey and 100% all-natural lemongrass essential oils. As you enter it's now your choice to have a seat in the living room or head directly to the screened in porch. Be careful because you may not get anything else done as you have a seat in one of the rocking chairs taking in the views and listening to the peaceful streams!

The Upper Level of our secluded mountain cabin features 3 bedrooms with 2.5 Baths each with custom hand-made art and decor. There are a total of 5 beds on the upper level. The Waterrock Knob bedroom features one queen bed and one twin bed that overlooks Newfound Gap, Waterrock Knob, and Great Smoky Mountains National Park in the distance. On clear nights you can lay in bed and see the stars or the moonlit mountain outlines. When you awake in the morning, allow the sunrise and the fading fog to clear your mind and give you a fresh perspective for the day. You will love waking up in this room! The waterfall themed room also features a super comfy queen bed with local waterfalls displayed on the walls. The larger bathroom is located just outside the bedroom door and features two individual toilets spaces, a shower, and three vanities! The third bedroom has another queen bed and a twin bed as well. The second bathroom on the upper level features a toilet, shower and tub combo, and our homemade sugar scrub! Hand towels, wash cloths, bath towels, and linens are provided for you.

Why This Property?

Over the past couple of years we have gained insight from our guests, friends, and family as to what exactly makes the cabin so special to them. We decided to list them for you!

Large Family Space - Unlike many cabin rentals we do not overcrowd our spaces. We host our own families here and have thoughtfully laid out the interior for larger group sizes. You and your family will have plenty of space to spread out and even disappear to a quiet place on the property when needed.

The Views - Phenomenal sunrises, quirky sunsets, all season views of Waterrock Knob, Newfound Gap and Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Decor - Sarah and I make all of the art, photography, and many of the furniture pieces ourselves. We want everything to be local, crafty, and add to our simple and relaxing goals for the cabin. We love the Smoky Mountains and we want to share that with all of our guests!

Seclusion - 1.5 miles up a gravel road gets you a very secluded escape from normal life! After all, isn’t that the point? The peaceful streams on both sides provide a nice ambient background noise on the porch or decks as well!

Other Benefits

Another benefit of booking with us is the experience and level of control we have over our property. My wife Sarah and I manage the property ourselves and therefore control cleaning products that are used in the home. Our goal is to have as chemical free environment as possible. We proudly use Mrs. Meyers products, hydrogen peroxide based(bleach free) bathroom cleaner, paraben free naturally derived body wash, and 100% natural essential oils for our cabin’s signature scent.
