Snowbird Mountain Lodge is tucked deep into the Nantahala National Forest in Robbinsville, NC. A little less than 2 hours outside of Asheville, Snowbird Mountain Lodge sits on a ridge that faces the stunning Snowbird Mountain Range. It is truly a magnificent place to escape into nature in one of the most pristine areas of Western North Carolina.
A rustic yet elegant lodge rich in history, Snowbird was constructed of large chestnut timber beams wood harvested on-site in 1938. Wonderful amenities including iPads, library, tennis, canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, mountain bikes, fly rods, and more are included in guest’s stays.
Snowbird’s Fireside Bar is the perfect place to enjoy a fine beverage and unwind. Guests can choose from a selection of handcrafted beers, ranging from local brews to some of the best in the world. In addition, they boast the finest spirits to be found in all of Western North Carolina, as well as a wine cellar with over 500 labels.
Nearby attractions include the Cherohala Skyway, Lake Santeetlah, popular sites for camping, fishing, and hiking, and Joyce Kilmer National Forest, which boast magnificent virgin and old- growth forests. Mercifully preserved in spite of the over logging experienced throughout Western North Carolina, Joyce Kilmer harbors ancient trees that grow to a height of more than 150 feet and a girth of 20 feet.
The lodge has a full calendar of events that are included with guest stays – hiking, music classes, art, writing and photography, and night walking with synchronous fireflies.
All lodging rates include three daily meals prepared by our executive chef: a full breakfast, a gourmet picnic packed to go for daily adventures, and a four-course dinner from a daily changing menu.
