"Great! Great! Great! This was the perfect place for our family vacation. We had the children and six grandchildren (from 4 to 20) and my disabled sister-in-law. Plenty of common room for fun and games, as well as more than enough bedrooms for privacy and comfort."

"This was our second visit to Blue Ridge Mountain Lodge. The current owner has made some huge improvements to the place that took what might have been a rained out vacation and help turn it into a magical one. This place is perfect for large multi-family gatherings, lots of seating spaces & plenty of bathrooms and rooms."

Why Guests Love The Home

"We had eight couples so this place was perfect for each couple to have their own private bathroom. Great back patio with stone fire pit. Landlord was very responsive and accommodating. Great hiking trails close by plus a short trail right next to property. Great experience overall."

- Ray H.

"This is the second time our group of ladies stayed at this house. The house is beautiful, the host, Mike Lin is so helpful and easy to work with . Mike went out of his way to make us feel welcome and even checked on us to make sure that Hurricane Ian didn't cause any problems. We can't wait to return and watch the deer roam in the backyard. I give this house 5 stars."
