Your relaxing vacation starts at the gated community of "Lost Cove", surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest and close to Lake Logan and many beautiful hikes and waterfalls.


Our house is in a quiet gated community, on an easily navigated paved road. Many of the furnishings in the house are handmade, including the furniture in the bedrooms and the dining room. A local artist created the paintings throughout the home.


Guests have access to the entire home - with a kitchen, washer & dryer, hot tub, and fire pit area. The maximum occupancy for the house is six people.  There are two bedrooms with queen beds - one bedroom & one bathroom on each floor - and an open room with two twin beds, adjacent to the upstairs bedroom. The backyard is off-limits as it is down a steep hill and not privately fenced. 



Our home is located in a quiet family-friendly neighborhood. Our caretaker, Bill, lives adjacent to the house. Contact information for ourselves and Bill is located in the house guidebook.


Please include all parties in your reservation request.  We do not charge an additional rate per person and we need your cooperation in letting us know who will be in our home so that Bill can set up the house appropriately for your stay.  Guests in excess of who have been listed on the reservation will not be allowed and your reservation will be canceled without refund should this rule be disregarded.


We are parents ourselves and value this special place as an escape from the city. We have been included in the family collection on Airbnb as a home recommended for families and children are welcome in our home.  Please include them in your reservation request.



Animals are not allowed. The yard is not fenced and borders NC game lands.



We are located on Fork Mountain beside Cold Mountain & the Pisgah National Forest & near Lake Logan & the Blue Ridge Parkway.


The towns of Waynesville and Canton are located about 10 miles from the home and have many breweries, shops, restaurants and grocery stores for your convenience.  Asheville is located about 40 minutes from the house and is home to Biltmore Estate and countless wonderful restaurants, breweries and entertainment options.  Maggie Valley is about 15 miles away; Cataloochee area attractions are about 25 miles away; and Cherokee and Gatlinburg, with proximity to Great Smoky Mountains National Park are located within an hour drive.


The house is a peaceful 15-20 minute drive from Waynesville and Canton and about 40 minutes from Asheville and about 20 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway.



For information about the house and happenings around the area and ideas for fun things to do, we have created a guidebook on the Airbnb app, in addition to numerous books and pamphlets at the house.  We also have a FB page @LostCoveLodge.
