Our group of 8 (60+) rented Laurel Mountain Lodge for a week and had a wonderful time. The Lodge is so well equipped, there is no need to bring anything but your food. It is furnished beautifully and the home is immaculate. There is a caretaker nearby if anything is needed, however, we didn't need a thing. No need to worry about rainy days either as there is a pool table, ping pong table and a fully stocked library to keep you busy. Even a closet full of games is available, not to mention all the tvs and available wi-fi. The Biltmore Estate is just a few miles away and wonderful golf courses also. I give Laurel Mountain Lodge 5 stars and hope to go back with my family next year.
