Secluded in 200 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!
You’ll feel like you are truly remote, yet, you’ll find the town of Hot Springs (pop. 600+-) 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.

At Wilderness Lodge you will get to experience: 

The sounds of silence, interrupted only by the sounds of the stream that flows through the property, birds chirping, maybe tapping of rain on the metal roof!

Visitors here are tiny hummingbirds (seasonally visiting our feeders) to larger sized red tail hawks,  turkeys… you may even see deer or a bear!               

    If you’re wandering on the trail through the property you may want to explore the small cave.      


In the Area:

The Appalachian Trail passes through the town of Hot Springs & by a bridge across the French Broad River.
