Welcome to Appalachian Mountain Lodge!

Appalachian Mountain Lodge is a unique Adirondack-style lodge with over 8,000 square ft. of living and entertaining space. Featuring hardwood floors, tongue & groove ceilings, new furniture throughout, updated kitchens and bathrooms, new appliances, new amenities, and much more; Appalachian Mountain Lodge is a fantastic option for your next family reunion, corporate retreat, wedding, or other planned and impromptu gatherings.  Adjacent cottage rooms offer additional lodging options and can be added to your reservation a la carte. 

The main level offers a huge chef's kitchen which has been completely renovated with all new floors, cabinets, counters, appliances, and more.  The main living room offers comfy seating situated around a huge wood-burning fireplace and HD Smart TV, and looks out of a wall of windows which frame long range mountain views.  The adjacent dining room boasts a huge banquet table which seats up to 14 guests, and a custom live edge bar top along the long inner wall, which seats eight more; include the three bar stool seats in the neighboring kitchen, you can dine up to 25 guests together in the dining room and adjacent kitchen island!  The Wormy Chestnut Library, also on the main level, is wrapped with hardwood!  Wormy Chestnut built-in cabinets and shelving, vaulted tongue-in-groove ceilings and exposed beams, hard wood floors, and a gorgeous reclaimed wood mantle make this a warm and mature room to enjoy memorable vacation experiences.  There is a Twin sleeping chair in the library which makes this another potential sleeping area when needed.  The massive wood-burning fireplace makes for a great centerpiece, and the huge HD Smart TV provides yet another entertainment spot, as if the other 14 smart TVs spread throughout the lodge aren't enough!   

There are a total of four bedrooms on the main level.  The main level sleeping wing features a large King suite "Secretariat Suite" with a private en-suite full bathroom, built-in desk, large HD Smart TV, and windows which look out onto the front lawn and out at the mountain views.  A second bedroom with two Queen beds, HD Smart TV, built-in desk, and mountain views as well as a third bedroom "Ruffian Room" with a King bed and HD Smart TV both share a full hallway bathroom with tub and shower combo.  There is another full bathroom central to the main level with a large tile shower and a water closet with sink and toilet that is next to the Wormy Chestnut Library making it convenient when using the library as a sleeping room.  The fourth main-level bedroom "Hank's Hacienda" is conveniently- and centrally-located between the main kitchen and the dining & living rooms with a huge double-French-door entry making it ideal for anyone handicapped or with mobility challenges.  It has a door which leads directly out onto the rear patio and windows which look out at mountain views.  The dedicated handicap bathroom is just feet away, off of the kitchen, and features a cantilevered sink perfect for roll-up access, a taller toilet with handles for easy leverage, and a roll-in, step-in steam shower with a built-in seat.  This is a guest favorite as the water temperature in the steam shower can be digitally-adjusted!  

Upstairs features the two primary suites - the "Wayne Manor" suite which is the primary master suite, boasts over 600 square feet with a King bed, huge HD Smart TV, built-in desk, large sitting area with loveseat and Queen sleeper sofa.  The en-suite master bathroom has double vanity with custom tile sinks, a skylight, and a huge soaking tub and shower combo.  The "Foolish Pleasure" suite is our secondary master suite - also with a King bed, and a Twin sleeper chair.  Preakness also has a large HD Smart TV as well as a full en-suite bathroom with tub and shower combo.  Both of the upstairs suites feature a wall of large windows which frame the best long range mountain views available in the lodge!

Downstairs features a large den and game room with an eight-foot slate pool table, a 16-foot shuffleboard table, a foosball table, and a huge HD Smart TV for entertainment.  The Over-stuffed comfy den furniture is arranged in front of a huge brick hearth with a wood box and a wood-burning fireplace.  The sofa opens up to provide a Queen sleeper bed.  Next to the den is a second kitchen, fully-equipped with sink, microwave, oven and cooktop, dishwasher, full fridge and freezer.  There is a three-seat bar top between the lower kitchen and den for an added dining and hang-out spot.  Down the hallway is the theater room with huge 100-inch projector HD TV and sound, with theater-style reclining seating and comfy bean bags for overflow, and a half bathroom - perfect for family movie-watching, gaming, and sporting events!   

Also on the lower level are more bedrooms... a Twin bedroom with Twin trundle bed sleeps two and has another HD Smart TV.  This bedroom has a Jack & Jill full bathroom with shower, also accessible from the den.  The second bedroom on the lower level is a suite with two Queen beds and a private en-suite full bathroom with tub and shower combo.  There is an exterior door from this suite out onto the rear courtyard and to the hot tub.  The rear courtyard features a gas grill and outdoor dining tables, all on a concrete pad and under a covered roof.  

Walk around from the rear lower courtyard to the large hot tub, and down the rolling and landscaped backyard to the immense wood-burning fire pit, and to the newly-resurfaced tennis court!  This huge back yard is perfect for outdoor family fun, and a good place for any event plans.  The Tennis Court was resurfaced earlier this year, and is in wonderful condition!

On the lower rear corner of the lodge, accessible only from an exterior entrance, is the La Nonna suite.  This is a quiet and private suite with a King bed, large HD Smart TV, and a full bathroom with huge tile shower.  This is perfect for the couple with young child needing quiet daytime naps, or for the mature member of your group needing a little extra space and privacy.  

The grounds offer a large and level front lawn - set well off of the quiet residential road, making it a safe and fun place for children to play.  The aforementioned backyard is a rolling, landscaped lawn which is perfect for children of all ages to play, with nearby wooded trails for walking and exploring.  The outdoor fire pit is between the lower rear courtyard and tennis court.

The level, tree-lined driveway and front parking area offers plenty of parking.  If you have a planned event, the staff will work with you to arrange off-site parking and shuttle service for day guests, depending on how many people you are hosting, and how many vehicles need to be accounted-for.

This lodge is handicap-friendly, has a dedicated level handicapped entry for both the main and lower levels, and offers wide thresholds into the house, the living/dining/kitchen areas, into the mud room, into the lower den and theater room, and into the dedicated handicapped bathroom and bedroom.
