The Lodge has accommodations to sleep up to 42, and a few more with roll-a-way beds. Each of our spacious 15 rooms have 2 queen beds. All rooms have private baths, private balconies, views of either the mountains or our private lake, sitting areas and color televisions with cable. We also have a beautiful Honeymoon Suite.

The center of our Lodge features a large natural stone fireplace, spectacular views through our giant windows, a huge deck, ideal for quiet meditation or laying back and reading your favorite book. Many artistic patrons enjoy using the balcony to render paintings of the lake and mountains. A piano and ample space makes the "Great Room" ideal for informal sessions and gatherings. Many guests enjoy relaxing in front of a romantic fire in the fireplace.

Our private cafe is host to many banquets, receptions and special events and can accommodate groups of up to 200. Our full time Chef takes great pride in preparing gourmet cuisine, which is, in no small part, responsible for much of our "repeat" business. Meals can be served either buffet, home or full sit down style. Weather permitting, cookouts are served on the "Deck" or in the "Hollow", which is our outdoor recreation area.

We offer a variety of meal plans to accommodate your preferences and your agenda. Most business groups prefer a 3 meal arrangement of breakfast, lunch and dinner. The 2 meal plan is customarily brunch at mid or late morning and dinner in the evening. All meals are arranged daily to suite your schedule. Depending on your arrival and departure schedule, separate meals are provided on these days as required. If you are inviting guests to join you for the day at your sessions, let us know and we'll make sure they are taken care of. If anyone in your group has special dietary preferences or requirement, let us know when you are confirming your guest list with us. We are accustomed to such special needs and will plan appropriate repast.

If you wish, we will provide appropriate snacks and beverages for morning or afternoon breaks. If you plan a late night work session, we'll make sure you don't go to bed hungry. Our upper floor has a fully equipped kitchen for our guest's convenience. Guest are permitted to bring snacks or we can arrange to fully stock the kitchen with cereals, bread, coffee, tea, fruit, juices and milk.

CFMNH may feel remote but it's close to many area attractions and just 15 minutes from Asheville. The Asheville airport has several daily connecting flights from Charlotte or Atlanta and an array of car rental services available. We can arrange transportation to wherever your group might like to go.

Our mezzanine, over 800 square feet is a spacious, well lighted area which can be arranged for your special function. It seats 40-60 people comfortably. The dining room can seat 36 with plenty of elbow room. Often groups prefer to meet in the serenity of the great outdoors which our vast acreage offers.  

Because of the high rate of repeat business, a good segment of our schedule is often booked a year or more in advance. A portion of our business is seasonal and there are often partial or full weeks open. These facts can be used to our mutual advantage inasmuch as many business conferences are only two or three night stays and mid week may not be a problem for you. Just call our Retreat Center Administrator to arrange a conference. We'll do everything possible to accommodate your schedule needs.

Western North Carolina offers a four season climate. Our mild summers and winter not to mention our spectacular fall season has become a hallmark we are known for the world over. Not to be outdone, spring offers the blooming of flowers unequaled in variety and beauty.

On premises, the Lodge has a variety of recreational facilities for your enjoyment. We offer a swimming pool, tennis/volleyball/basketball court, hiking trails and much more. The "Hollow" is brimming with interesting old buildings: a water-wheel driven grist mill, a craft house, an old tobacco barn, a blacksmith shop and even an outdoor privy complete with crescent-mooned door. You might even want to challenge your friends in a game of horseshoes. Our trails are wonderfully scenic and invigorating. The lake is surrounded by a paved walk way a quarter of a mile long and ideal for joggers. The lake path is lighted at night for those who enjoy the night air and romantic ambiance. If you would like to, we'll take your group on a tractor-pulled "hay ride" for a tour of the property. The tour includes a visit to our neighbor's farm. It's not your run of the mill farm. It has miniature horses and donkeys and llamas Llama treks are also available.

Having entertained tour, vacation, and craft groups, we have established an excellent working relationship with and knowledge of the more interesting sites and attractions in North Carolina and the surrounding states. We can organize an interesting day trips of a few hours or a all day excursion, if your agenda permits. We can arrange for your group to go white water rafting, visit a nearby ski resort or a day of golf all within just minuets of the Lodge.
