Mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, kayaking, and swimming are just a few of the adventures awaiting your friends and family at Forge Lake Lodge. Wake to the smell of fresh brewed coffee and wander onto the patio for a stretch in the clear morning air. After breakfast, test your mettle in a white water raft on the famous Nantahala Falls, or hike the two-mile loop above the Whiteside Cliffs. Take a trip to Cherokee, North Carolina to shop for antiques or Native American goods. Head home in the evening for a glass of wine. Have a big dinner -- you’ve earned it, and end the night with a movie by the fireplace.
