From the moment you arrive at Watersong Lodge you’ll feel the tensions ease away. Two acres of naturalized mountain landscaping with mountain laurels, black-eyed Susans, and bountiful wildflowers bounded by a spring fed stream in a cascade of little waterfalls chuckle and murmur as they lull you to sleep each night. Watersong Lodge is separated from the world by your own grove of white pine and hardwoods yielding to a sweet view of the valley and Hemphill Mountain. Stroll through the grounds and you’ll find all sorts of wonders – follow the stream down to the picnic area and fire-pit great for a family cookout. Further up the stream you’ll discover a bench by the water perfect for sneaking off for a read or a break from the crew.
Watersong Lodge’s spacious vaulted great room is an excellent place to gather the gang for movie time, story time by the stone hearth fireplace, or a friendly game of poker on the provided Texas hold’em table with full professional chip set while you gamble for cleanup duties tomorrow. Two teak dining tables let you configure for family buffets, country style sit-down dinners, or return to the kiddy table and the ‘grownups’. Wrought iron seating for 12, beautiful cobalt settings for many more, artisan flatware and linens make dinner a delight for all, and the large kitchen with lots of counter space, cookware, and all the cooking supplies that could feed an army – make cooking together a joy.
The master suite on the main floor features a large walk-in closet, walk-in shower, iron frame queen bed, and a flat screen TV. From the master suite the sound of the brook will soothe you to sleep. On the main floor you will find another bedroom with an iron frame queen bed and bear accents. The third bedroom on the main floor has a skylight, two double beds featuring a moose theme. The second full bath on the main floor serves the great room and both the second and third bedroom.
Downstairs is the second living area, set up especially for the kids with a game ready TV and DVD player as well as a foosball table. You’ll also find a large queen bedroom with two closets and a built-in ironing board. There is also a kid’s room with bunk beds. The third bath is here also, with a full size tub/shower fed by a high capacity water heater.
Start your day in the mountains with a hike, walk around Lake Junaluska, a fishing trip, skiing, or just hanging with the family. Finish with a soak in the new hot tub while enjoying the view from the downstairs deck/porch area, or stage a burger bonanza on the big gas grill. The utility room has large capacity washer and dryer for you to use so you can travel a bit lighter. Perfect for your family, fishing club, retreat or small weddings, centrally located to Asheville, Cherokee, Waynesville, Bryson City and the Great Smoky Mountain Park system. You will find Watersong Lodge spacious, homey and family friendly.
Close to everything, but away in a world of it’s own – Watersong Lodge guests who stay here make it a habit. Find out why yourself!
