Wilderness Lodge…

 a vacation rental
tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains,
near the historic and quaint town of Hot Springs North Carolina

Wilderness Lodge

Side view of log home- summer

Secluded in 200 (two hundred!) acres of wooded privacy this log home has been a popular vacation rental for many 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… the ultimate in privacy!
In the words of country musician 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. You’ll find a slow pace there, too!
  

                   

In this forest-like setting, there is an absence of traffic, noise, and street lights. No thru road or other homes in view from Wilderness Lodge.

In the words of the owner this is “not a Disneyworld or city experience… this is the wilderness.”

*If you check in the same day another guests check out the hot tub won’t be hot until the next day. Unless a guests informs us they haven’t used the tub, and our inspection appears to confirm that, it will be drained after each guest checks out. Due to the temperature of the well water, and the heater it takes many hours to heat back up to a comfortable temperature.
