Today is the first truly chilly day in Atlanta, and this creates excitement for Fall lovers like myself, it’s time to start thinking about planning cabin trips for the fall and winter months – and boy, did I just come across a fantastic one!
It’s called the Round Knob Lodge, and it’s about 30 minutes East of Asheville and about four hours North of Atlanta. This place is amazing! It’s a restored, historic railroad retreat that can sleep up to 24 people. There’s a heated full-sized pool (even in winter! spectacular!), grills, barbecues, two decks and it sits on 15 acres. There’s a lake to go fishing in, dozens of nature trails to hike and more. Inside you’ll find a pool table, foozball, two televisions, board games, a bar and a very large, fully stocked kitchen.
I can’t wait to sit on the screened-in porch, sipping hot chocolate and gazing at the Blue Ridge Mountains. That’s the way to spend New Years!
The Round Knob Lodge is only about 30 minutes from downtown Asheville, an adorable town full of antique shops, coffee shops, quaint stores and restaurants. There’s a very active arts and music scene in Asheville as well, which should be a lot of fun. And don’t forget about the amazing Biltmore Estate in Asheville!
Why stay in a hotel when you can stay in a cabin like this one?
