Description Description
Traditions begin at Whitetail Lodge! Located in a private mountain community just 35 minutes west of Asheville, this home-sweet-home log cabin features a wood fireplace, a hot tub, and a breathtaking mountain panorama from the covered front deck.

Whitetail Lodge welcomes you to Western North Carolina with the warmth of a comfortable, well-stocked mountain home that offers plenty of places to relax. Take in the beautiful view from a front porch rocking chair, soak your worries away in the bubbly hot tub, or kick back in a recliner and watch a movie in the loft sitting area. Imagine days filled with Smoky Mountain adventures followed by evenings spent relaxing by a wood fire in the stone hearth with the aromas of a home-cooked dinner filling the cabin. Whitetail Lodge makes mealtimes a breeze with a fully equipped kitchen and family dining table, plus there's an outdoor dining area and a gas grill for cookouts on the deck.

If you're traveling with kids, features such as gated decks and two full baths with tubs make Whitetail Lodge perfect for family getaways. Bonus: the main bedroom and the upper-level bedroom both have their own TV with satellite service! For groups that need additional sleeping space, there's a queen sleeper sofa in the loft area. A ping-pong table in the garage keeps the young and young-at-heart entertained.

Whether your group wants easy access to fun mountain activities or an abundance of well-deserved R and R, Whitetail Lodge has exactly what you've been looking for in a Smoky Mountain log cabin! This property was formerly called O'Leary's Hideaway Cabin.

The home is under a noise ordinance between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. It is not suitable for groups that are looking for late nights of celebration on the deck.

The views from the porch were absolutely stunning.
The views from the porch were absolutely stunning. Was a great place to get away yet close enough to everything we wanted to explore.

We had the best time staying here at Whitetail Lodge.
We had the best time staying here at Whitetail Lodge. We thank you for the recommendation of breakfast, very yummy. We liked Bojum and it was a favorite. After every adventure coming back to this cozy cabin & soaking in the view from the hot tub was the icing on the cake. Thank you again for a wonderful cabin.

Thank you for providing such a wonderful place for rest, rejuvenation, and fun!
We absolutely love this cabin! Is it cozy and has the perfect amenities to enjoy on a rainy day! There are so many attractions nearby to explore, too! We are already planning a trip back to share this place with our children! Thank you for providing such a wonderful place for rest, rejuvenation, and fun!

Thanks for the great weekend!
We had a great time lounging by the fire while we played cribbage and Yahtzee. Our dog loved exploring the woods and meeting the horses next door. Downtown Waynesville was great and we visited one of the best breweries in North Carolina. Thanks for the great weekend and for allowing us to celebrate a year of being married.

Had a great stay, despite the weather being rainy & cold (for us floridians) we had a fun time hanging out, playing games, hot tub and exploring the town! Would recommend to family and friends. Thanks Carolina Mornings & owners!!!

Amazing Stay at This Beautiful Cabin
We had an absolutely amazing stay at this beautiful cabin! Thank you for offering this as a silent auction item for A Place for Hope. We will definitely be coming back for a longer stay. Loved walking Water Rock Knob on Saturday and playing games on Sunday. Thank you again!

Perfect for Our Winter Getaway!
This cabin was perfect for our winter getaway with our dog! We loved the hot tub and wood-burning fireplace and the king bed. There were games and puzzles and all the amenities we needed. It felt very private and clean.

Very Cute Cabin!
Very cute cabin! It seems much bigger than the pictures show. Very nice view from the back porch, but there is a tiny bit of road noise from the highway. Would stay there again!
Mckenna R - Posted: 6/27/2022 - Stayed from: 2/23/2022 to 2/26/2022
Beautiful & Well Stocked!
The cabin was beautiful and well stocked! The porch allowed for easy mornings and beautiful sunsets. We'd love to come back again!

Photos Don't Do It Justice!
My partner and I booked this cabin last-minute for an anniversary trip to Asheville! I have to say, the photos don't really do this cabin justice. It was so incredibly clean & cozy. We didn't want to leave! I cook a lot, and the kitchen was incredibly well stocked. We loved the wood-burning fireplace and hot tub downstairs. View was amazing, and we even got some snow on our last day there. It's not far from Asheville, and yet you feel like you're miles away from anything. We didn't really explore outside very much as we had some very cold weather, but felt very secluded and safe. Internet was reliable and fast as well! We will definitely be coming back here.

Amazing Week!
Thank you so much for sharing this amazing place! We were double celebrating. My wife's retirement from a 35-year teaching career, and our 34th wedding anniversary. We were able to slow down and relax - even with our Jack Russell, Rugis. We highly recommend shopping in Waynesville, The 209 Diner, and the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad.

The cabin was great!
Why use a lot of words when a few words do the trick? The cabin was great!

We had a lovely time here! If you are lucky you will be visited by a red cardinal each day. Usually announces his visit by tapping on the master bedroom window every morning.
Ramon C from Kissimmee, FL - Posted: 2/2/2021
Thank you so much for taking such good care of our mountain Home! We appreciate you very much and hope you have a wonderful new year!
Travellers from USA - Posted: 1/25/2021
"The cabin was great - clean and accommodating. The beds were comfortable, there were plenty of extra blankets and towels, and the amenities were great. Truly well done! Recommend driving an AWD as the graveled driveway is a little steep. Nice quiet neighborhood with some long range views. The hot tub was functional and perfect for a nice afternoon soak and there was an added measure of security with Ring cameras and sensor lights on the outside of the property. Thank you for the great hospitality, it made our stay that much more relaxing. "
Amanda H from Tampa, FL - Posted: 12/10/2020
"We had an amazing time! This is a beautiful place in a great location. We loved the view, the furnishings, cleanliness, and quietness. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend and will be back! 5-star cleanliness, furnishings and bedding - kitchen was well stocked."
The W from Oxford, AL - Posted: 11/14/2020
"Even tho we are very young, this was a lovely 50th wedding anniversary gift from our children. Wonderful home, beautiful weather, gorgeous sunsets - foliage!! Thank you for allowing our doggies to enjoy the trip as well - great home for our furry friends! likewise we missed the rafter bears as well ! Wonderful vacation! An announcement - another grandbaby coming - their 1st child - our 4th grandchild. Next time we come, we will have a ""screamer"" - my daughter's 1st child. Her husband was a significant part of that. That's OK, he's absolutely great! Although we missed seeing your house trained bears, we didn't miss seeing the ""outside"" non-trained variety. The house is/was fabulous! We are glad that you allowed us to share the beauty of your home & the environment that it is a part of. Thank you so very, very much. A great 50th anniversary gift, and a great ""life"" gift! Felt like I was staying in a private home! Clean, well appointed, relaxing. Carolina Mornings is extremely professional and SO informative to its clients. Everything! View from balcony, fireplace, kitchen had everything needed, clean, nothing negative to add at all! Everything was great! "

The W from Concord, NC - Posted: 5/14/2020
Carolina Mornings - we feel so blessed to have enjoyed a week in the mountains during our girls spring break. These are some uncertain times and we are so glad we were able to have a week of normalcy before returning home. We look forward to coming back and unwinding in the mountains.
The F from Macclenny, FL - Posted: 5/14/2020
"Day 1 - we made a big breakfast & had sweet porch talks. Day 2 - we went to the Biltmore & Early Girl Eatery (breakfast - WOW), & French Broad & made enchiladas for dinner! Day 3 - we slept in and explored downtown Asheville. Ended the day with baked ziti & the Bachelor Finale. Last morning - we packed up & are headed home.
