    The River Lodge Bed & Breakfast - Cullowhee, North Carolina

    Welcome to our Smoky Mountain Bed & Breakfast!

    On a bend in the Tuckasegee River sits this elegant Smoky Mountain bed and breakfast lodge built with 100 year old hand-hewn logs taken from old barns and cabins in the Smoky Mountains region. The River Lodge is rustic elegance at its best. From the massive stone fireplace to the handmade twig beds to the gourmet breakfasts, everything about The River Lodge is a delight to the senses. This is mountain lodging that's away from town but close to everything that's great about Western North Carolina - the mountains, streams, waterfalls, trails and the never-ending panorama of spectacular scenery.

    If you're looking for out-of-the-way lodging near Dillsboro, Sylva, Cullowhee,
    Cashiers or Highlands, North Carolina, The River Lodge is in the perfect location.

     A massive stone fireplace stands boldly in the great room. Its hearth beckons you to sit and gaze Spectacular Great Roominto the glowing light of a beautiful fire that dances with your thoughts. The vaulted room is comfortably arranged with an eclectic blend of furnishings, creating Smoky Mountain lodging that warms your body and soul. Decorated with antiques, crafts and American Indian motif, this lodge affords you the luxury of appreciating art and nature at its best.

    Our North Carolina bed and breakfast sits on six acres of manicured grounds with several streams that flow into the Tuckasegee River. A cascading waterfall runs along the side of the inn. A standing forest of 100 year old pines are the backdrop. Rhododendron, hemlocks and fern line the driveway that winds its way to the entrance. You can sit on the porches and balconies of the lodge and enjoy the river, waterfalls, streams and mountain views that surround you in this elegant retreat.

     

    You will enjoy a good night's sleep on the queen size mountain made log beds dressed with plush pillows and cozy comforters.
