Wilderness Lodge is a vacation rental
located in the Blue Ridge Mountains,
near the historic town of Hot Springs North Carolina.

Surrounded by 200 acres of wooded privacy this log home has been a popular vacation rental for more than 5 years. We have many guests who have been here several times because… they love it here!  You won’t find another vacation rental in the area with this much acreage. In the words of country music artist Dwight Yoakam… you’ll feel like you’re a thousand miles from nowhere”.  Yet, you’ll find the town of Hot Springs (pop. 500+) just 13 miles away to be so quaint and laid back.


In this forest like setting, you should notice the lack of traffic, noise, and street lights.
No thru road or other homes in view from
Wilderness Lodge.
