Embrace the nostalgia of simpler times, with a crackling fire in a historic lodge, walls lined with books,

and a Mountain View beyond measure.

Add really good food with ingredients from farms and growers close by, sitting in classic rockers and moving to and fro on the deck,

or sipping your favorite cocktail while sharing laughter, and you have found Snowbird.

A place where connection, intention, and rawness are abundant and welcome you with open arms.

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.

Elegant Comfort

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.

Culinary Delight

Guests will experience a perfect setting for a memorable meal in a relaxed atmosphere. Our culinary team works closely with local farms and growers to create seasonal menus with really good food.

Three complimentary meals are included with your accommodations, including a full hot breakfast, a packed picnic lunch for your day’s adventure, and dinner.

The Fireside Bar offers an incredible selection of wines, spirits and handcrafted beers from around the world.

Outside diners are welcome; reservations required.

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).
