Round Knob Lodge evokes memories of a generation past. It is a very secluded property with modern amenities that allow you to host a business retreat, family gathering or outdoor wedding.
Built by Southern Railway executives in the early 1930's as a retreat, it has been expanded and remodeled to provide modern conveniences and safety while maintaining the relaxed feel of a rustic retreat. It is situated on 20 acres with a trout creek running through the property. Train enthusiasts will enjoy the many antique railroad items displayed throughout the lodge.
The main level has a Great Room with a magnificent fireplace and plenty of space to spread out. This large room and adjacent deck each have approximately 1000 square feet. These spaces provide great flexibility for gatherings.
A newly remodeled kitchen provides modern facilities for feeding groups. There is seating capacity for over 25 people.
The Game Room is directly below the Great Room and is accessed by a wonderful spiral staircase. It has a pool table, foosball table, dart board, large card/game table, a widescreen 60 inch TV and a great bar with ice machine.
There are 6 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths.
The main floor has three bedrooms:
~ Master's Suite has a king bed and full bath across the hall
~Captain's Quarters has a king bed and attached Jack & Jill full bath that is shared with the First Mates' Cabin
~First Mates' Cabin has two single beds.
The lower level has three bedrooms:
~Charleston Room has a queen bed and attached full bath
~Tackle Box Room has a queen bed and attached full bath that is shared with the Bunk Room
~Bunk House Bedroom has 5 twin beds
There is an additional split full bath (shower behind one door and toilet/sink behind an adjacent door) off the lower hall.
There is an elevator to assist in moving between the two levels.
The views of the nearby mountains and the ponds on the property are amazing from Round Knob Lodge and 'The Overlook' above the creek (stair access from the parking lot). The two ponds are stocked with trout and bass.
There is also a level area adjacent to the ponds and creek that is perfect for an outdoor gathering. Power is available in this area.
Wireless internet is available throughout the Lodge. A sound system is available to play music from an iPod, CD or the radio. Speakers are located in both the Great Room and the Game Room.
Please note: sheets and towels ARE provided for your convenience.
This beautiful estate is an easy 40 minute drive from downtown Asheville and a short 15 minute drive to Black Mountain.
Facility charges for events on the grounds are $1000 in addition to the rental fee.

This place is marvelous. It has wonderful views of the breath-taking mountains. The location has a huge stocked pond and paddle boat to enjoy the water. The huge rustic home has a large kitchen, inviting family room with big TV and fireplace and an entertainment area with a pool table and bar. Perfect for our retreat in a stress free environment.

To celebrate my mom's 85th birthday, my sisters and I were looking for a property in or near Montreat (that has been a big part of our lives for decades). Round Knob provided a perfect setting for the celebration - allowing the bulk of our group to stay under one roof. The property offers something for everyone - game room and fishing pond for the children, and congregating space for the adults to visit. The icing on the cake is the history of the property and surrounding area that added to the intrigue. Gary was very attentive to our requests and questions.
Highly recommend this place for any large group - families or business gatherings.
