The Lodge @ Smoky Cove

This 16,000 ft2 lodge was built by the Kress family in 1940 using the local lumber processed at our mill. We are thrilled to be able to offer this local and historically-related option for our future guests. With its timber-frame structure, large common area, outstanding views, and capability to sleep 60 guests, this lodge will not disappoint!
