Falling into the elegant-rustic category is the Copperhead Lodge nestled in the Appalachian Mountains. The Lodge offers standard guestrooms with a king bed or two queens. Upgrade to a suite with whirlpool tubs and mini-fridges.
The property also has rustic pine cabins that sleep four and come with porches, BBQs and kitchens. Luxury cabins include outdoor hot tubs. For an incredible three-bedroom, two-bath mountain retreat ask about the Mayor’s Place.
The friendly onsite restaurant offers “comfort food with attitude” along with a bar and porch overlooking a pretty creek. Guests receive free passes to events ranging from BBQs to live music in the summer amphitheater. Other amenities include a seasonal outdoor saltwater pool and free parking.

These cabins are small but always spotless. Many are equipped with grills and hot tubs. They also provide motorcycle garages at each cabin so you can lock up your bike and gear at night. There is a lounge and restaurant on site. We love the Copperhead Lodge.
We took a motorcycle ride and found this wonderful place with great views of the mountains! The pool is a good size and the grounds are very nice!!! The clubhouse is huge with beautiful decor and I’m sure during the winter this place is absolutely gorgeous!
