Sky Valley Lodge

mountain lodge asheville north carolinaIn constructing Sky Valley Lodge, we had in mind a restful haven, where you can exercise your body or relax your mind, work in peace, or commune with neighbors. Fabricated in a way that commemorates the skills of the area’s historic settlers, our beautiful owners’ lodge was hand-hewn from 160-year-old hemlock from an old barn and timbers that were harvested from the property.

Lodge Amenities

  • Antique quarter sawn, glass-front oak cabinets highlight a sophisticated entertaining kitchen overlooking the grand lodge with a native stone fireplace.
  • Naturally lit fitness facility with sauna, handicapped bathroom, an array of equipment and free weights
  • Outdoor living room with fireplace and long range views of Mt. Mitchell, Pisgah National Forest and Whisper Mountain’s own Double Creek Park
  • Terrace spa overlooking Sky Valley Park, beyond which lies 30 miles of awe-inspiring mountain vistas
  • Upstairs business center with Internet, printing, copying and faxing capabilities
  • Covered terrace with a private stone fireplace for cozy gatherings of friends.
  • Spacious fine wood decks are big enough to entertain large gatherings, accommodate a band or a wedding party.


For the more spirited, consider Glamping, glamorous camping, at our historic tent camp. Our luxurious tents are 11×14 with queen sized beds, hand cut bedside tables, camp stoves and lanterns, and conveniently located near the Sky Valley Lodge, for bathroom facilities. Enjoy a cup of hot chocolate by the campfire and create memories with your friends or family.

Community Parks

Cascade Park

This beautiful green-space is connected to Family Camp via Cascade Trail, which provides a moderate to vigorous hike along Cascade creek and an old mountain pass, through a quiet, pristine valley.

Old Settlers Park

Twenty acres of meadows banked by Homestead and Whisper Creeks make up Old Settlers Park, with the historic Little Sandy Methodist Church log building at its center. Stroll along the gurgling mountain creeks with your Whisper Mountain Field Guide in hand. You are certain to discover delicate flowers, butterflies, and even little native fish.

Double Creek Park

This park features a path lined with dry stack stone walls leading to a picnic area just above Double Creek. Log benches nestled into natural stone outcroppings dot the path, perfect places for a respite from the trail.

Sky Valley Park

Sky Valley Park is situated just by the owner’s lodge and is comprised of a large, open field for sports and general play. Lounge on the deck of the lodge while watching kids play ball in the park below. Enjoy a tranquil moment or a sunset picnic in the log framed arbor overlooking Mt. Mitchell.
