AMAZING MOUNTAIN LODGE 70 ACRES, 1.5 MILE OF RIVER, TROUT POND AND FLY FISHING

Cruso Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Mountain Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, 5000 sq feet (Sleeps 18)

Sitting at an elevation of 3,200 feet, this 5,000 square foot designer decorated mountain lodge serves as the central point for all the guests at East Fork Ranch. The home boasts five bedrooms including two master suites, two spacious guest rooms and one “bunk” room (perfect for kids).

The Lodge at East Fork Ranch is one of four different properties available to rent. All four properties are listed on VRBO, and can be found by selecting the link at the bottom of this page. The properties at East Fork Ranch can be rented out on an individual basis, however if you would like to reserve all four houses for a corporate retreat or large family gathering Please contact us and we will work with you to accommodate your plans.

The Lodge has a huge, open kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a Franklin stove surrounded by river rock, and a hand built, rustic wooden dinning table for breaking bread with family and friends. The Great Room is adorned with comfortable designer furnishings and dominated by an impressive stone hearth and fireplace.

The gathering front porch of the Lodge is well equipped with comfortable rocking chairs and an all-encompassing view of the property. On the level below the porch resides a sitting area, fire pit and stone barbecue for the preparation of a multitude of outdoor culinary delights. And on starry, starry nights, the kids will love catching fire flies in Mason jars or roasting marshmallow's and sitting around the campfire watching the flames dance in the cool, mountain breezes.

Western North Carolina is a paradise in so many ways. So much to do – so little time! Just look around and take in all the mountain wonders that abound here in the shadow of Cold Mountain and the Pisgah National Forest. This is truly God’s country in so many respects. The abundant wildlife, the rolling topography of the land, the rushing streams and rivers – all beckon those weary with the demands of city life – to sit still and take in a deep breath of clean, cool mountain air.

It is here, a midst the mountain laurel, Hemlock and Maple, here along the wooded walking trails, here at the side of a placid fishing pond or a rushing river, here under the evening stars and within the sounds of a crackling fire that you and your closest friends and family will remember, reflect and resolve that while you may travel back home, you will never truly leave this place.

Keywords: Elevation of East Fork Ranch is 3,200 Feet, Smoky Mountains, 11 mi to Waynesville North Carolina, Cold Mountain, 35 Mi to Asheville North Carolina, Blue Ridge Parkway, river, trout fishing, weddings, corporate retreat, family reunion, 5 mi to Pisgah national forest, sliding rock, Viking Range, Stainless Steel Appliances, Fly fishing onsite, Professionally designed interior, Fire pit, out door grilling area, Golf next door.

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
Our group included two grandparents, two adult couples, a baby sitter and 5 kids ( ages 9,4,3,1,1,). The kids slept in the kids' bunk room which could accommodate 8 if needed. The house is very,very kids friendly and there is enough space to get away from the kids if you would like. We were there a week and only went out to dinner in Waynesville once. We spent the days hiking and enjoyed sitting on the porch and around the fire pit in the evenings. The kids loved roasting marshmellows and playing in the nearby stream. Some of the adults hiked on the nearby trail and fished on the property. The kitchen has everything needed to cook meals for large families...We look forward to returning!

Recent summer stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at the lodge last week. The home is beautiful and spacious, and it was a perfect location for a family vacation of twelve adults and six kids. There is terrific hiking nearby, and the house is great for lounging on the porch, roasting marshmallows over the firepit and walking around the property and stream.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
East Fork Ranch far exceeded our expectations (which were pretty high!) for a large family getaway. This beautifully decorated home easily accomodated our family of 17, allowing space for all of us to gather together or spread out. We had a great time exploring the property, sitting by the firepit and petting the horses. East Fork Ranch was our perfect vacation home and we all look forward to many more visits in the future. Arriving to find lovely holiday decorations throughout the home was an added bonus.

More than amazing!

  • 5 of 5
My family of 18 stayed here for our Thanksgiving Reunion and every single one of us loved the location. Everyone boasted on the size of the cabin, the atmosphere, the lay of the property. We truly would go back any time and recommend to everyone. THe owner was a pleasure to deal with and we never had a problem at all throughout the whole rental process. Thank you!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fabulous week enjoying East Fork Ranch...the Lodge and Graves Cabin offered every amenity to our families. All 21 of us enjoyed swimming in the pond, fishing in the trout pond and river, roasting marshmallows in the fire circle, relaxing on the porch and cooking elaborate meals in the beautiful lodge kitchen. Everything was wonderful...the decor, landscape, accommodations and management. Kendra was fantastic...always responsive and hospitable! We look forward to coming back for a redo! I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to getaway with a large group with family and/or friends...all ages included!
