Deep in the mountain wilderness of western North Carolina lies a special place that very few know about. And for those that do, they return time and time again to experience this secluded historic retreat. Snowbird Mountain Lodge is such a place, where time stands still and cares fade away. Where endless ridges of mountain grandeur take over your senses and acclimate you to the sights and sounds of nature’s subtle surroundings.
A Place For Your Soul
From the moment you arrive, the rest of the world disappears.
Fresh mountain air and wide open spaces make it easy to disconnect to reconnect.
Retreat to the terrace rocking chairs, where the sounds of nature, the panoramic views of the Snowbird Mountains, and the southern breezes set the tone for a getaway like no other. TV’s are intentionally absent at Snowbird Mountain Lodge; it’s all part of the mountain retreat experience to free your mind and body of stress, and embrace nature’s elegance.
A Place For Your Mind
How long has it been since you’ve been able to immerse yourself in a good book, or challenge yourself to a game of backgammon?
Sit in front of our massive stone fireplace, study our area’s rich cultural heritage, or partake in one of our specialty events such as birding or a wine dinner.
Have your first cup of coffee in our main lodge and our staff will guide you in tailoring your visit. We are here to cater to your relaxation, but will never impose on your privacy.
A Place For Your Body
Embrace your adventurous side while you explore our outdoor experiences.
Many amazing adventures await you right outside our door. Explore Lake Santeetlah, hike secluded forest trails, and discover area waterfalls and rivers. For a slower paced activity, take a scenic drive along the Cherohala Skyway and Moonshiner 28 for stunning mountain vistas.
Hike our Snowbird Mountain Lodge trails without ever having to leave the property. Rest stops, picnic areas, and mountain views highlight two sets of trails. The Point Trail takes you to our Sunrise Deck, while the Santeetlah Trail traverses alongside our fire pit, tennis courts, and gardens, and ultimately arrives at the Sunset Deck.
A luxurious place to rest your head at the end of the day awaits you at Snowbird Mountain Lodge.
Each of the fifteen guest rooms is paneled in a different native wood harvested on the property in 1938.
Accommodations range from the log and stone warmth of our main lodge rooms, to romantic and luxurious guest rooms featuring fireside sitting areas and private decks with two-person hot tubs.
Snowbird Mountain Lodge has delighted guests since 1941, healing souls and refreshing spirits with its quietly astounding Smoky Mountain vistas.
Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, a scenic adventure vacation, or long to experience the stylish simplicity of a bygone era, a lifetime of memories awaits you.
Snowbird Mountain Lodge is located eleven miles from Robbinsville, North Carolina on the eastern side of the Cherohala Skyway (TN165 and NC143).
