Private Waterfall on Cold Mountain With Fishing on Property

Waterfront cabin with kitchen and patio
Come enjoy our rustic mountain cabin located on Cold Mountain. You can fish, hike and breathe the cleanest air in America.

The cabin overlooks a waterfall and a river where you can fish and enjoy a fast moving mountain river experience.

This is a truly unique property not to be missed.

Here you will find a truly unique mountain cabin strategically placed at the base of the historic and unforgettable Cold Mountain.

In addition to a private waterfall on Lodge property, and attendant hiking up Cold Mountain on the uphill side of the cabin, there is trout fishing on Lodge property along the Little East Fork river for use by guests. Our recent guest caught (and released) a 2.4 pound rainbow trout.

For auto touring, the lodge is perfectly located for easy access to the Blue Ridge Parkway (11 miles) and Waynesville (14 miles).

At an elevation of 3,000 ft. this mountain lodge features 2 bedrooms and 2 baths and a large cathedral ceiling living and dining area. The Lodge is a rustic cabin built in 1977 and renovated in 2014. It features modern conveniences but is at its heart a rustic Western North Carolina cabin on one of the most famous mountains in the state.

This is a real North Carolina poplar wood cabin with electricity, gas, satellite internet-WIFI and telephone that is surrounded by a dense forest of trees and the sounds of a waterfall just outside below the 800 square foot deck. The evening air is cool, even in the summer and the milky way is clearly visible above on clear evenings from the deck. In the evening in the spring and summer you can see a the dozens of fire flies in the forest above the deck after a day of fishing for trout at the private footbridge on the river on Lodge property.

The living room adjoins the kitchen and features an open design with high ceilings. It is heated by a wood stove fitted into the fireplace. There is plenty of room for reading or enjoying the company of your friends and family. A set of double doors leads from the living area to a large deck that overlooks a green forest, Panther Branch Waterfall and beyond to the Little East Fork River. This is a large property with over 6 acres located between Panther Branch and the Little East Fork River. There is a footbridge that spans the Little east fork with a rough path (at your own risk) that rises to a lookout in a pavilion that looks over the property on fall days (not in summer-it's a forest of green then)

The waterfall is on the property and is located next to the lodge and is visible from the deck.

Cold Mountain Lodge is easily accessible from Little East Fork Road off of NC 215 12 miles from interstate 40 in Canton, NC and features a paved driveway that leads up to a paved parking area at the lodge. Up the wide staircase is the lodge and a deck that includes plenty of seating to take in the clean mountain air and the sound of Panther Branch creek and the nearby Little East Fork River. The deck includes an entrance to the living room and kitchen area of the house.

The Lodge is situated 14 miles from the town of Waynesville, NC with its unique art galleries, boutiques and coffee shops along with gourmet dining opportunities. There are many nearby tourist attractions in Maggie Valley.

Motorcyclists and hikers can use the lodge as a base for exploration of the hiking and motoring beauty of the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Cold Mountain offers wonderful hiking opportunities for those who want to explore the ample hiking on Cold Mountain. The gravel road behind the house is approximately two miles long and leads up to the 4,000 foot level of Cold Mountain. Cold Mountain also has numerous “logging roads” used in the 1900’s on the mountain that are fun to hike and which our guests have special permission to enjoy.

As mentioned above, you can also walk down from the lodge, cross the paved road, and continue on lodge property to the Little East Fork river.

Even closer to the lodge is beautiful waterfall visible from the deck. Just sit there and enjoy the view!

Panther Branch leads down to a river just across the paved road in front of the lodge called the Little East Fork River.

Little East Fork is a river that features incredible views of rocks, trees and mountainside and it’s fun to walk along the river in the wooded area below the lodge. We own the property across the Little East Fork River and you are absolutely allowed and invited to walk across the hard road and enjoy the wooded area along the Little East Fork River up to the pavilion for picnics or any other outdoor recreation. The river has cold water that creates a cool breeze even on the hottest summer day.

There are bicycles for guest use at the Lodge. If you turn left from the base of the driveway and bike upriver you will see excellent views of the mountains, farms and the river and after two miles arrive at the Daniel Boone Boy Scout Camp which is the beginning of the Art Loeb Trail.
Serious bicyclists will love using the lodge as a base for exploring the numerous bike routes along Hwy 215 up to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Just get on your bike and ride!

4/5 Good

Enjoyed your cabin
Everything was good! The only thing was the need for curtains in the master bedroom. There was a light from across the road with a sensor that kept shining into the master bedroom. But other than that it was great!

4/5 Good

Great Location!
This cabin was absolutely perfect in terms of closeness to town and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Highway 215 has plenty to do on it, and is off the beaten path. The stream and river were great for our boys to play in; Ralph’s instructions on how to access both were spot on and easy to follow. The beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were spotless. The deck furniture was comfortable and the sound of the water was soothing. The internet was fine for loading basic web pages. Follow the directions carefully, as Google Maps would have sent us past the cabin driveway to the street up the road!

4/5 Good

Nice cabin.
Nice place located very close to great fishing. Check in and check out was easy. The internet is hit or miss so if you plan on working remotely, it might not be the place to stay. I’d stay there again.

5/5 Excellent

Rustic but cool!
Caution! Lodge is on an unnamed private road adjacent to a named road. GPS will take you to a bamed road, so follow Owner's directions. We had a medical emergency our first morning there, so I can say that I and our two dogs were comfortable. Great location and convenient to Asheville!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful secluded cabin to get away
The cabin is beautiful. It's clean and spacious. The bed is comfortable if on the firm side. My partner loved it, while I didn't but I prefer a super soft bed. Plus: clean. Lots of space. Deck is gorgeous with an amazing view of a waterfall. Kitchen is well equiped. Bed is nice. Con: internet is listed as fast, it is not. Was barely able to load basic web pages. 0 cell reception.(this is a plus for some people). Finding the property at night is a bit of a pain. The master bath gets soaked when you shower, no matter what we tried to prevent it. None of the doors quite latch or lock(inside) so if you need privacy, it's pretty hard to get. Notes to owner: please replace the shower head, with strong pressure and so few holes it could be kind of painful. The oven never seemed to get to temperature, we tried to bake biscuits and it should have taken 10-12 minutes, ended up taking 30+ and were still doughy.
