Newly available for smaller groups! This very unique structure was once a school house and will now serve as an excellent place to host large and small groups alike visiting the Smokies. The Hive Lodge(Upper) is a place where busy bees like you and I can rest. You will most certainly find our rustic farmhouse style lodge peaceful and relaxing! As you begin the 3 mile drive from the Smoky Mountain Country Club, and “civilization”, up the winding 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.
Once you have parked your vehicle, enjoy the peaceful sounds of the mountain streams on both sides of the lodge. After entering our handicap accessible lodge and walking the long entryway, it's your choice to have a seat in the living room or to head directly to the screened in porch. There you can take in the views or relish in a bit more of the rushing sounds of water! Inside you will find the two couches and chairs provide a very comfortable space for watching the 55” HDTV on rainy days.
What’s that subtle fragrance? Why yes, that is the signature Hive Lodge scent of local beeswax from Wherloom Honey. The rustic farmhouse dining room table will not only give you a breathtaking mountain view but will also seat your entire group of eight to ten persons! You will find the kitchen to be fully equipped with all the utensils and necessary cooking items you may need as well. Coffee is a must on the deck in the morning! You can use the traditional brewer or the Keurig to make your perfect cup.
When you are ready to claim a bedroom, off the kitchen you will find a tastefully decorated bedroom with light and airy blue colors inspired by the surrounding waterfalls. A custom hand crafted headboard is a great centerpiece to the plush queen size hybrid memory foam bed. There is also a large bathroom with three sinks, a shower, and two water closets across the hall! If you take into consideration this used to be a school the unique arrangement will make complete sense.
The back bedroom features a queen bed and a twin bed with barn door style headboards. There is plenty of space and a large closet to make you feel right at home. Open the window facing the creek for a tranquil night's sleep listening to the streams. The third bedroom, dubbed the “Water Rock Knob” room, also features a wonderfully comfortable queen and twin bed. Each bed has a custom walnut slab headboard to add to the decor. 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 over Water Rock Knob 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!
Ready to head outdoors? The common area features a fire pit and chairs by the stream. There are also two single hammocks for your use which offer some of the best views on the property! You will also find the pond area overlooking the field below very relaxing. The Hive Lodge is perfect for your next group gathering!+ More
