The Blue Boar Retreat may be rented year-round, without the Innkeeper or staff,

Plan a holiday retreat or winter get-a-way for your family and friends. Springtime arrives late March, when the old growth trees begin to green and daffodils start to bloom.

Fall begins to arrive early October at the higher elevations and throughout the month into late November, the foliage colors are orange, red, and gold everywhere you look. The fall air is crisp & sunny during the day and at night, the fire pit is the best place to sit. Winter is great for gathering inside around the fireplace and celebrating the Holidays with family and friends. Each season offers something special for your group to make memories!

The Retreat has 8 guest rooms, living room with fireplace, dining room facilities,

and a large commercial kitchen for you to cook your favorite meals. Outdoor covered deck and fire pit. Trout Pond. Boat dock on Lake Santeetlah. Swimming in lake. A catering service can be recommended for special occasions or festivities.

What to expect in the surrounding area.

Graham County is located in the far reaches of Western North Carolina in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains of the southern Appalachians. This region is home to the some of the highest and most remote mountains east of the Mississippi with elevations ranging from 1177 to 5560 feet. Graham County is nestled among hundreds of thousands of acres of wilderness full of stunning mountain landscapes and many breathtaking views.

Graham County is practically enclosed by rugged towering mountains on all sides. The western range of the Great Smoky Mountains separating Graham from Tennessee is called the Unicoi Mountains. The southern boundary is the Snowbird Mountains circling to Red Marble Gap, then swinging northward to Cheoah Bald. The northern border is the Little Tennessee River inundated by Fontana Lake. The Cheoah range and the Yellow Creek Mountains traverse the northern part of the county completely boxing in Graham County on all sides with the exception of the rocky gorge of the Cheoah River below Lake Santeetlah where the Little Tennessee enters Tennessee. It is then indeed little wonder that this region was one of the last regions of Western North Carolina to be settled by the white men. Graham County, a part of the Cherokee treaty lands, was not opened to settlement until President Jackson ordered the removal of the Indians in 1838.

Thousands of hiking trails surround Santeetlah Lake amidst extremely biodiverse flora, awe-inspiring landscapes and intriguing wildlife. In addition to the encircling Nantahala National Forest, the Appalachian Trail can be reached to the east in less than ten miles. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park forms the northern border of Graham County providing visitors with popular camping, backpacking, fishing, wildlife viewing, and auto touring experiences. The 10,000 acres of the Snowbird Backcountry Area, where a group of Cherokee Native Americans hid from persecution on the Trail of Tears, is located south of the lake. Hunting, native trout fishing, primitive camping, and cascading waterfalls make this area a favorite among visitors. The Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest is immediately situated on the western side of the lake. The protected area is a stunning preserve of forest that has never been harvested by man. Twenty-foot wide poplars and giant red oaks, silent in their ancientness, are among some of the magnificent specimen of life you will see.

Elevation of Blue Boar Woodlands Retreat is 2100 ft.

I purchased this property in 1998 when it was still an old hunting lodge built in the 1950's and spent a year renovating to create an updated rental property. I ran the facility as a bed and breakfast for 13 years before offering it as simply a large group vacation rental home.

Pamela Glenn purchased this lodge in 1998

Lake Santeetlah is a lake surrounded 75% by National Forest and is not crowded with lakefront homes and boat traffic. The property is surrounded by woodlands but has access to the lake with a permitted boat dock. It is out of the way and serene.

We have our own stocked trout pond, access to the lake, and space for many people to sleep comfortably with 8 private bedrooms with baths. The local Ingles grocery store is just 8 miles. There are 2 marinas on the lake for boat and jet ski rentals. I can recommend a private catering service for your special festivities.

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing! The retreat is very nice and much more than we were expecting (the fishing was also great). The kitchen is unreal and has everything you would ever need to feed a large group. I would recommend this place to anyone that has a large group looking for a mountain getaway. Pam is a great host and was very flexible with us.

Family Reunion at the Blue Boar Retreat (BBR)

  • 5 of 5
We expected a lot from the BBR based on the description and the location and the BBR delivered everything we expected and more. It’s hard for the pictures to capture how special this place is. We had 16 people made up of a 3yr old, teenagers and adults. The 8 bedrooms worked perfectly, each with their own bathroom and sitting area and a door to the inside off the main hallway and also a separate door off the sitting area to the outside made which coming and going very convenient. The BBR was very clean and Pam the owner was very responsive to any question we had. We rented a pontoon boat for a day and everyone had a great time swimming out in the lake…the 3yr old didn’t want to get out of the lake!. There was also good swimming at the dock/boat landing area. We cooked some fabulous meals in the huge kitchen and we used everything, two huge commercial refrigerators, sear burner, 6 burner gas stove, flat top and both the convection and conventional ovens....wow what a fun kitchen to cook in! We also went fishing in the lake, hiking and drove to some fantastic whitewater rafting. We built fires in the fire ring outside and sat under the covered deck every day and evening to talk about what a great time we were having. This is a special place and I would recommend it to folks looking for a place to unwind, cook some great food and get in as much of the outdoors as you feel like experiencing!

Perfect Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 16 found the Blue Boar Retreat to be the perfect spot for our annual reunion. The 8 bedrooms are all very spacious. We loved all the sitting areas throughout the inn. We spent every evening sitting on the back patio and using the fire pit. The kitchen was the ideal situation for those who really enjoy cooking. We also really appreciated having access to the boat dock. The owner Pam was very nice to work with throughout the process.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the Blue Boar. Bed rooms are good sized. The facility was clean and ready for our stay. The grounds are beautiful. We liked the outdoor covered seating area. Even in the rain, it was comfortable. The commercial kitchen and large refrigerators were perfect for our large group. A fun place to prepare group meals. The pond area could use some upgrading and improvement, but the good Lake Santeetlah access made that less important.

We hiked trails in the Joyce Kilmer National Forest and used kayaks and canoes on the lake. A beautiful part of the state.

The Blue Boar Retreat is absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a heavenly week at the Blue Boar Retreat. My husband and I treat our family to a week long vacation each summer and this year we found a truly amazing place at the Blue Boar Retreat. There were 22 of us (including 11 grandchildren aged 2 years to 18 years). The house was just fabulous and the location was so beautiful. We had everything we could possibly ask for. Comfort, privacy, space, and natural beauty. The house had every comfort and was beautifully maintained and so clean. The kitchen was a dream to cook in. The 6 burner stove, two ovens, huge griddle, and large indoor grill made it easy to turn out some fantastic meals. We cooked all our meals there and we never found that we needed some cooking utensil or item that was not provided. In other vacation homes we always had to make multiple trips to the grocery store due to lack of refrigerator space. The 2 commercial refrigerators and separate freezer were wonderful. The dining room easily accommodated all of us with seating to spare. We also had a murder mystery game night that we played in the dining room, using it as a "restaurant" for the game. It was PERFECT. The living areas had comfortable and well laid out seating for reading, playing cards/games, and just enjoying each other. The bedrooms were huge with very comfortable beds and large bathrooms. The outdoor areas were so wonderful. We sat around the fire pit at night and played charades, talked, made s'mores, and so much more. The view of the grounds and trout pond is beautiful. The covered outdoor deck was so wonderful on a rainy day. Beautiful Lake Santeetlah is just a short walk away. We swam, boated, canoed, kayaked, and thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful lake. I cannot say enough about this wonderful place. We usually return from our family vacations tired but this place is so serene and relaxing that I was not ready for it to end. Yet we had 7 teenagers with us who never once said they were bored. Unbelievable! Before we left today, the entire family asked if we can come back next year. We are already making plans to return.

Best Place for a Reunion

  • 5 of 5
We booked the Blue Boar Retreat for a family reunion and it was just amazing. The 8 bedrooms are large, clean and comfortable. There is plenty common space for gathering, a dining room that seats 30, a commercial kitchen that is well equipped and fun to cook in. The grounds are lovely with a large terrace, fire pit, and covered deck over a singing creek.
The waterfront is nice for boating and swimming. Plenty of privacy and space. We added a hillside cottage for two extra bedrooms, which worked out well. Highly recommended!

White water rafting, birding, wildflower viewing, fly fishing, canoeing, scenic drives, Tail of the Dragon, Deals Gap, Nantahala Gorge, boat rentals for lake Santeetlah. Local arts and crafts. Cherokee History information. Area draws motorcycle and sports car enthusiasts from all over the country to ride the Tail of the Dragon, an 11 mile stretch of road with 318 curves. Graham is known its for car gatherings and motorcycle rallies.

Lake Santeetlah is the most scenic and least visited of any lake on the eastern seaboard. With approximately 75% of the shoreline either USFS lands or in conservation easements, you will always enjoy a guiet boating experience. The mountains rise right out of the shoreline and there are long range views from just about anywhere on the lake. And this area looks much the same as the first European Settlers found it when they drove their wagons across the 5,000 foot high mountain divides to get here.
