Magical private mountain retreat on 37 acres with trail to creek waterfalls

Tucked away among ancient mountain laurels and towering hardwoods, at the end of a road on 37 acres right alongside a creek, you'll find Creel Lodge - a magical private mountain retreat. This property is the ultimate "get away from it all" option for a small family vacation, romantic getaway, or couples retreat. The approach to Creel Lodge is via a well-maintained private drive through its secluded gate.

Nestled within a stunning and pristine woodland setting, enjoy a private nature trail that weaves through the expansive property over a picturesque bridge with picnic areas scattered along the way to two magnificent waterfalls. In the evenings, gather around the firepit to share stories, roast s'mores, and watch the stars come out. Guests have described their experience at Creel Lodge as staying within one’s own private National Park, yet being wonderfully accessible.

Creel Lodge is a spacious and charming two-bedroom, two-bath retreat with distinctive and wonderfully comfortable rooms, all with modern amenities, luxury bedding, and linens. There is a bedroom and adjacent bathroom on each floor; both rooms offer a TV and stunning floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the creek.

Whip up all your favorite recipes in the modern, open, well-equipped kitchen. This main-floor cooking space has stainless steel appliances and spacious quartz countertops. Then, head out to the large covered wraparound deck to indulge in a perfect alfresco dining experience overlooking the creek. A gas grill is provided for warm-weather cookouts.

Kick back and relax in the living room and stream TV shows using your own accounts. Extra perks include Starlink internet, a washer/dryer, and central air-conditioning.

This home is conveniently close to numerous hiking and biking trails leading to magnificent waterfalls that rival those of many national parks! This property is also just 14 miles south of the historic town of Franklin, 15 miles from Highlands, and 16 miles from Dillard, GA - the gateway to the Great Smokey Mountains.

With a plethora of things to do on and off the property and a relaxing lodge to return home to, this is the perfect place to rejuvenate for your next big adventure here in the Nantahala National Forest!
