Located near beautiful blowing rock, you will find creekside camping. Especially beautiful in the fall, you can enjoy all the positives of camping without having to lug all of the gear. You won't have to pitch the tent and set up all the equipment. You'll just have to enjoy the peaceful setting by the creek and take advantage of the onsite hiking. Some trails lead to lovely streams, while others lead to beautiful mountain views, and still others lead into the pisgah national forest. Some just choose to rest and enjoy the woods while reading a good book creekside.

About Beth Vonnegut
We moved up from the heat of Florida to enjoy the cool freshness of the Appalachian Mountains.
Beth Vonnegut purchased this Lodge in 2001
Why Beth Vonnegut chose Apple Ridge
We fell in love with the property because it is secluded, yet only about 10 minutes from downtown blowing rock.
What makes this Lodge unique
The property is located on approximately 22 acres. Renters have the ability to also rent two nearby cabins. You can look at the cabins and their availability by checking #194090 and #112607 on homeaway. Great for family reunions, weddings, business groups, and scout groups.

Relaxing and peaceful with great fire ring!
Cabin tent was very comfortable. Bunks have air mattresses. Dining pavilion has full gas range with gas grill and plenty of countertop space. You may want to bring you own pans and cooking utensils if you enjoy camp style cooking. Be careful with directions leading down to site from the main road as a wrong turn could lead to a 4x4 only trail that is difficult to get out of. Great location with sound of stream in the background when falling asleep.
The facilities were lovely. The tent interior was neat and clean! Not buggy at all! Yea! Each bed had an air mattress which was very comfortable and clean. The owners thought of nearly everything! It was great to have light, running water, grill and gas stove in the pavilion. Our kids loved running around in the woods, playing in the stream and exploring the grounds. The owners were very attentive to my calls. I had to call several times with questions - like specific directions to the site, details on use of some of the amenities, etc. They were very responsive. However, I just wish they had provided all this info with the reservation confirmation. I was glad I had 4-wheel drive to get up and down the driveway. It isn't required but was helpful.
Beautiful and secluded
We had a wonderful stay. The area is big and secluded. It was a perfect getaway from busy city life. The place is hard to find - google maps led us to the wrong spot so we had to call Bob to get back on track - he was really helpful. We would definitely stay again.
One of our favorite places ever!
Our family has visited this little spot 3 times. Our son loves playing in the stream and exploring the beautiful property around the camp site. We all love sitting by the huge fire pit at night. It is very private and the perfect spot for anyone seeking a little nature and adventure slightly off the grid. The property used to have a queen bed which we do miss; the queen has been replaced by bunk beds with air mattresses. The Owner's are very nice and quick to respond to any questions.
Very nice camp! We really enjoyed everything about the property!
We had a wonderful time at the campsite and can't wait for our next trip back!
Perfect glam camp spot !
Loved this part of the property the rent is perfect for families, camping, or a large group of friends. It kept the rain out, has a pavilion for grilling, and is conveniently tucked into the mountains. Wish we could have enjoyed the hiking trails !
Our campsite offers access into the pisgah national forest. Take advantage of lots of onsite hiking without having to leave the property. We also have 2 cabins onsite, but not visible from the campsite or each other, and have been used for family reunions, birthday celebrations, and weddings.
