Overview

About the property

Lodge, 8 Bedrooms + Loft, 8.5 Baths, (Sleeps 16-20)

What sets the Wayward Moose Lodge apart from the rest of the properties in the Asheville area? Its location has to be first on the list. You will feel secluded, having a mountain top with incredible scenic views all to yourself, but you in fact will be 5-10 minutes from shopping and 10-15 minutes from eclectic downtown Asheville. You will find some of the best hiking, fishing, and white water the region has to offer within an hours drive. The Mountains to the Sea Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway will literally be a few hundred feet out your back door.

The second thing that sets us apart is much more mundane but seems to be important to many of our guests and that is the fact that each of the eight spacious bedroom has its own bathroom. Two of these eight bathrooms have air jetted tubs and the master suite has a claw foot tub as well as large shower.

You can’t overlook the view. Actually you can, all you want, as it will be staring you in the face about anywhere you are at the Wayward Moose Lodge. My favorite vantage point is from a rocking chair on one of the extensive porches. There is no better way to end a day than to relax with family and friends on the porch in the evening, soaking in the last remnants of daylight on the mountain peaks in the distance.

When you find yourself having to go inside you will enjoy a lodge type setting with log walls and vaulted ceilings. There is a large great room that is a perfect place for gatherings of any sort and this is serviced by a professional style kitchen. All of these features make the Wayward Moose Lodge a perfect place for family reunions, wedding parties and corporate retreats.

We are now able to provide transportation for a fee in our 12 passenger 4WD van. Go out for an evening on the town and leave the driving to us. If the weather gets bad, we can get you where you need to go!

Great for family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this location and the spacious lodge for our week-long family reunion--21 of us ranging from infant to early 70s in age. Stairs to the main house are steep and many for the elderly, but the grandparents were fine on the first floor in the guest house... So much to do in the area, with groceries and gas nearby for convenience. The owner even left a grocery discount card which we used often. Any issues we had (low water pressure, loss of hot water, and a sink pipe break) were addressed immediately and did not impede our good time. I recommend the Wayward Moose Lodge. :-)

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family reunion consisting of 13 people. The lodge kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils and the living room was big enough to accomodate all of us. All the bedrooms are large with their own private bathroom. Although the lodge appeared fairly clean, the guest house needs more detailed cleaning. Floors appeared dusting with some cobwebs spotted in some corners. Multiple insects (spiders and ants) were also spotted. Also the air conditioner in the guest house was not working efficiently enough to cool the upstairs bedrooms. Thermostats could not be adjusted either. Other then the overall condition of the guest house, the lodge was a great place to stay with a big group of people. We’d love to come back.

Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The home and guest house were just beautiful! Great lodge feel and very reasonably priced. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time here. The main house and guest house gave all in our party (11 people) enough room to spread out. We will definitely return, if visiting Asheville is in our plans again. Small side note for future guests: the road up to the house is a little harrowing, but once you've traversed it, it is not as intimidating on subsequent trips. We would highly recommend this property!

Was great even in the rain!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were at this property for 6 days and it rained (flash floods) for 4 1/2 days but we still had a great time! The cabins are wonderful, with enough room to keep 12 adults and 10 children entertained on the rainy days. The view is amazing. Thank you for a great stay.

Wonderful family reunion location

  • 5 of 5

We spent four nights here. Extended family of 16 adults and 2 toddlers. The owner, Simms, is very kind. We left something behind after checking out and he brought it to the restaurant we were eating at later that night. I was amazed! The house was beautiful and very spacious. We loved sitting on the porch together. We all appreciated the accommodations although some staying in the smaller house thought it needs a deep cleaning/more attention to detail. The closet in the first floor master is gigantic and can serve as a room for little kids in Pack n Plays/tents (it doesn't have a door though). The closet in the double room on the second floor can fit a kid tent (PeaPod) or perhaps a Pack n Play. The other closets are not large enough for little kids. (Writing this for those of you with little ones wondering about this!) The drive up to the house was not a problem for any of us. We would stay here again.

Great for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had up to 20 family members spending a week at the lodge and adjacent guest house and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. The place is beautiful and wonderfully appointed. It exceeded our expectations. The dirt road up is intimidating the first time, but it quickly became a non-issue, even for the Tesla driver in the group, whose car never once scraped or suffered a mishap. We twice utilized Bake My Day Asheville with Rachel and Cody to prepare dinners in house. Fantastic idea we got from other reviewers of this property and I highly recommend that, as well. The main lodge has beautiful floors of reclaimed chestnut which creak with character, so the most sound-sensitive of the bunch should consider staying in the 4 bedroom guest house adjacent. Fantastic views, really responsive owner and son, the van shuttle worked out great for our group, and we would definitely consider staying again.
