About the property

Completely remodeled 2/1 with long range views & outdoor living.

Boessel Lodge is a cozy cabin destination located at 3300' in downtown Waynesville. This cabin apartment features a private drive, patio, yard and long range views. Centrally located to Harrahs, Cataloochee Ski, Dollywood, Blue Ridge Parkway, Lake Junaluska, WCU and all the best breweries!

Driveway has easy-access with plenty of parking for vehicles and motorcycles.

Located exactly 1 mile from downtown, this cabin features a rustic design and cozy atmosphere. Looking off the patio you’ll find breathtaking views of downtown Waynesville and the surrounding mountain range.

This property offers a comprehensive adventure planner on our website that you’ll download as soon as you book to prepare your trip. It’s full of the most exciting things to experience around WNC including free and low-cost activities, that we personally developed and produced.

While relaxing outside, you’ll see and hear our Robins, Finch, and Blue-Jays in our sanctuary-like ridge overlooking the downtown area.

Inside you'll enter through the brand new kitchen and find it tastefully decorated with mountain inspiration. Offering a full kitchen and all the necessary cookware, we are advocates of a sizzling home cooked meal. Eat by the bar, looking outside at the beautiful landscape or at the kitchen table with seating for 4.

Walking through to the living room the first thing you'll notice is you're surrounded by the AMAZING photography of the various landscapes of our beautiful area covering the walls.

The living room features a 55' LED big screen tv, HD cable, a Roku that plays HBO, Netflix and Pandora. Unwind in the living area on our large cozy sectional sofa with plenty of seating for everyone.

The large bedroom in the rear has two, very comfortable queen beds sitting under recessed lighting and surrounded by mountain range photography from around the area. This bedroom features a 40' tv with HD cable.

The master bedroom features a king size bed themed out in night landscape photography from the Blue Ridge Parkway. This bedroom also features a 40' tv with HD cable.

The bathroom is covered in marble with a rainfall showerhead, river rock shower floor, and themed out in Waterfall photography for a tranquil setting that will have you feeling refreshed and energized.

The very well lit outdoor living area features a very comfortable patio set to enjoy your morning coffee and evening cocktails, a gas grill and an outdoor fireplace stocked with wood ready for you to burn.

About Benji & Ashley Boessel

Ashley has a hospitality background, and will charm your socks off if you get the chance to meet her. We are here to serve and hope you come stay on our ridge!

Benji & Ashley Boessel purchased this house in 2015

Why Benji & Ashley Boessel chose Waynesville

We purchased this property because of the million dollar view, just a minute from downtown Waynesville. One second you are in a neighborhood behind downtown and the next moment you're on top of the ridge looking over the valley.

What makes this house unique

You will fall in love the views, location, inside decoration and outdoor living area. We designed this to feel like home, and not a weekend stay.

Great Location, but Disappointing

  • 3 of 5

The location is great. Wonderful views, private outdoor space, fire pit. Kitchen is well equipt.

But, the second bedroom has no window! (Seems like a real safety issue.) Also, no kayaks, and no wood for the fire pit. There were two mountain bikes, but they had no brakes! (Another safety issue!) Screen door did not shut all the way. It would have been nice to have a printout in the apartment with phone numbers, etc.

The lodge was very clean and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place to rest after a day of hiking and exploring. The hammock was very relaxing. We had planned to build a fire outside but every night we came home and sat on the big comfy couch and didn't want to move. Our favorite part was Gracie. Since we couldn't bring our dog with us, it was great to have her there to greet us every morning and evening. It was difficult to leave her standing at the top of the hill as we drove away. I will recommend this property and hope to visit again.

Beautiful accomodations, and view of Waynesville.

  • 5 of 5

The Boessel Lodge, was a perfect escape for the weekend, very close to Downtown, but the home's high elevation has a beaufiful view of Waynesville. The lodge was significantly more spacious than the pictures show online, the decor is beautiful and the home itself impeccable. As stated online, we had use of the bikes, and the hammock out front with a view of the mountains. Great outdoor space right outside our door, including the fire pit. Peaceful, private and very quiet. The full kitchen and roomy bedrooms made for a great stay. Information on local things to do was a wonderful tool during our stay. Our favorite bonus was Gracie, the lodge's outdoor bundle of love dog. We would definitely love to return for a stay at the Boessel Lodge, and highly recommend this home.
