Built in 2007, Smokey's Den includes 4 bedrooms with 3 full bathrooms and will sleep up to 10 people comfortably. This three level lodge with 3,989 sq.ft. of indoor living and 1,000 sq.ft. of deck space, is great for the perfect family getaway. Smokey's Den has a rustic finish, with knotty pine floors and tongue and groove ceilings. Smokey's Den is privately owned as a family retreat and was built with the purpose of escaping to the beauty, privacy and serenity of western North Carolina Mountains. There are two levels of decks and three floors, each with at least one bedroom and a full bathroom. There are two large screen TV's each with a DVD and VHS, a combination pool table/ air hockey table, and wireless internet access for your laptops. The Lodge is fully stocked with linens, cooking utensils, air conditioning. We hope your stay at Smokey's Den will have great memories for your family albums.
On the top floor there are two bedrooms. One is private with a Queen Size bed. The other is open with a double and single bunk bed. The loft has a double futon. The main level features a master bedroom with a king size bed, which we call the Bear Room. The remaining bedroom is located in the basement, which has a queen size bed. This room is called the Fish Room. Both the basement and first floor levels have french doors which open to breath taking views from the decks.
We gathered from New York, Zurich, Williamsburg and Charlotte for a too-short family reunion in October 2008. The lodge is spacious and easily accomodated our group of 7 adults and 3 children. It felt like staying in an HGTV Dream House! The fun "cabin" decor, modern amenities and comfortable style were a pleasure. The 180 degree panoramic mountain views were the best - and we, too, loved the outdoor fireplace, where we gathered for morning coffee, brats on the grill at lunch, and drinks in the evening. A highlight was dinner on Saturday night, where the family gathered around the very large dining table for beef tenderloin steaks from the grill. Wish we could have stayed longer! We clocked the trip at about 70 miles from the Charlotte airport.
We just returned from a short stay at this beautiful lodge! This place was awesome! We will be returning for a longer stay in the near future. The lodge is well equipped with anything you could possibly need.
The cabin was awesome. The three floors offered plenty of room for us and our friends but also had enough room to spread out. The kids were able to watch movies downstairs while the adults hung out upstairs. The dining room table was big enough for family meals for 10 and the kitchen had lots of room. The cabin itself was perfectly decorated and was very clean and ready for us when we arrived. The views from the enormous back deck were breathtaking to say the least. Watching the sunset in the valley and not being able to see a single house was almost amazing as the view an hour later when the stars came out. If you're looking for seclusion and peace then this is the place. One word of advice to future guests... Make sure you have everything you need before you get there. The nearest store was probably 30 minutes away and any attractions were about an hour away. But, once you get there you probably won't want to leave anyway so jag make sure you check your grocery list twice before you leave the store. Thanks Bob for an unforgettable Memorial Day weekend at Smokey's Den!
I want to say thank you for opening your home to us it is gorgeous. The
area was absolutely beautiful. The views from the balcony.....simply amazing! The online photos were good but actually being there was great. After sharing photos with friends we have had many to say, "I'm going next time."
As I stated before this was our first time in the mountains and we are so
glad it was a wonderful experience! Thank you for your availability and
quick response whenever we had questions. We had an awesome time the
weekend of 1/15/16 and looking forward to the next adventure.
Thank you again for assisting in our unforgettable memorable moments.
We were looking for a place to enjoy the mountains and the changing colors of Autumn...and Smokey's Den was perfect. The house is beautiful and the view...oh my goodness, it is absolutely stunning! You will not find a better view of the mountains. Bob Bivins was very professional and accommodating. We totally enjoyed our stay!
My family and I stayed here for two nights for my daughter's high school graduation dinner. Upon arrival, I examined the cabin and saw that it was very spacious and clean. All the beds were comfortable, and it had everything we needed. We enjoyed the hockey table, pool table, big screen TV, radio, and cards that were provided for us on the lower level. There were also board games available. I was very satisfied with the condition of this vacation rental. The location of this cabin was awesome. The property manager was very helpful in telling me everything I needed to know. Everyone was pleased that I chose this vacation home for this special occasion. They loved the view from the balcony. I recommend this place to anyone looking for a great place to enjoy the view of the mountains. It is a very quiet place to stay.
Smokey's Den is a ten minute drive off I-40, so it is a great place to stay to explore Western North Carolina. Near by attractions include Asheville with its 'Paris of the South' reputation, the 250 room Biltmore House-which is America's largest privately owned home, Grandfather Mountain with its swinging bridge, Mount Mitchell which is the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Enjoy small towns like Black Mountain, Tyron, Rutherfordton, and Hendersonville with their galleries, antique shops, friendly shop owners and locally owned restaurants. Serious furniture shoppers are less than an hour from the Hickory Furniture Mart with over 100 outlets; outlets such as Bob Timberlake, Mitchell-Gold, and Drexel-Heritage.
If your idea of a getaway involves outdoor sports, you are in the right spot. This area offers hiking, rock climbing, tout fishing, jet skiing on Lake James, whitewater rafting, mountain biking and snow skiing.
