As the owners of Deer Trail Lodge, when we say that "we care" about your comfort and the care and attention provided to the home to ensure that you are comfortable and relaxed during your stay, you know this is not a marketing ploy or words just meant to attract your attention.  After traveling for three decades, renting dozens of homes off VRBO and AIRBNB, we rarely found a home that we would have rented twice.  We always had to carry our own pillows, dog crate, and loads of cookware.  Not a single home had a crockpot, waffle maker, or a dog crate!  We found windows often had no blinds, the noise from neighbors kept us awake, the doors did not latch or creaked, and the home clearly lacked the attention of an owner who also used the home often. 


So.... we decided to do apply this experience to making our own vacation home better than this, and have made the decision that we absolutely should share Deer Trail Lodge with our guests who are likely looking for the same vacation home experience that we were...comfortable beds, clean from floor to ceiling, personal touches from someone who cared, ample supplies, privacy, with both heat and air conditioning, easy to operate gas fireplaces, good air circulation, outdoor spaces, creekside sitting, an excellent supply of kitchen equipment, new and well maintained appliances, a storage area, room darkening blinds, a place to walk a dog in comfort, and plenty of nearby outdoor activities.  We have found this for us at Deer Trail Lodge, and after spending hours cleaning, remodeling, and reworking every aspect of this home in the summer of 2021, we feel you will also find this home away from home to be your safe refuge from the troubles of the real world. 


A place to come, stay, and play


We love Deer Trail Lodge, and we hope you will too.  If anything is amiss during your stay in the home, and certainly we cannot control everything as maintenance issues do occur even in the most well maintained homes, please reach out to us for our immediate attention, either with an email, phone call, or text.


"I recently enjoyed a stay with my wife and son in this beautiful two-floor home.  It was a great place to fully relax and to have great hiking and fishing and waterfalls nearby.  I look forward to returning here in the future."               Jeff, August, 2021
"I stayed here in late summer.  The house is really
nice.  The interior is clean with cool cabin decorations.  The fire pit in the backyard is awesome.  Love those solar lights!"  Chandler, July, 2021
"What a great place! Beautifullyl appointed. It's the perfect combination of rustic and luxurious.  Made me feel pampered!  And the wildlife is everywhere!  On our first day, we saw deer, turkey, even a BEAR in the backyard! We love it...we'll be back"   Tanya, August, 2021

"My friends and I truly had such a great time together at the house.  It was cozy and beautiful.  We all said we would definitely come back again and would love to try it in the winter months as well.  There was also so much to do in the area!" Alexandra, July, 2021
"An absolutely GORGEOUS cabin in one of the most scenic places in NC.  We walked inside and immediately felt right at home.  An awesome place for those who love to see wildlife.  Deer galore!  Close by to so many outdoor activities.  Would love to come back again!"

"Love the house, especially the kitchen and dining area, has a lot of natural light.  One of the coolest things about the place is the firepit area in the backyard.  We loved seeing all the deer that are EVERYWHERE around here"
