Kana'Ti Lodge
Vacation Rentals - 828-622-7398
"A small green-built Rustic Mountain Retreat in spirit with the Great Lodges of older times and ancient places, providing our guests with a Base camp Trailhead to unique high alpine mountain experiences in remote and primitive surroundings."


 Welcome to Kana'ti Lodge!
The Lodge is built using local materials and labor and honors Kana'ti, first chief of the first people: The Cherokee and earlier Woodland tribes who, according to archaeological evidence used this area for thousands of years as a hunting ground for Mammoth, Bison, Elk and Deer migrating up and down the Bald Mountain Range as the ice caps retreated northward.

We offer three cozy rustic bedrooms with organic sheets and towels, two with separate entrances and porches.

We are active in the Slow Food movement (good, clean and fair) so quality fresh and local food is on top of our list of priorities. Many choices are available, from dining at local venues, to "on your own" and about everything in between.

If you feel like it, help us gather fresh vegetables, fruits and mushrooms from our nearby farm, or fish in local streams for fresh trout. Harvest wild mountain blueberries and huckleberries in the fall and we'll make a pie!

Plan your own hike or stroll to suit yourself. Trails through the Pisgah Forest are all around us leading to some of the most interesting and spectacular views along the Appalachian Trail which is a mere 20 minute walk from your front door.

Stroll through a natural "Rhododendron Dell" (tunnel) to the high meadows around 4,500 ft. Max Patch Bald, revered by Backpacker Magazine as one of the very best must-hike locations in the southern Appalachian mountains.

Local outfitters offer  white water rafting, horse back riding, and Llama trekking. The hamlet of Hot Springs is a fun and scenic 30 minute drive and offers gourmet dining, outfitter HQ, and of course, geothermal mineral spas.

Let us plan a scenic drive of rural mountain scenery, small farms, local craftsmen, and small mountain communities for your touring bike or sport scar. Or just enjoy a sparkling star-filled night on one of our many porches or a blanket- hike to the upper meadows for some ghost stories.
