Kana'ti Lodge, Blue Ridge Mountains North Carolina

Kana'ti Lodge is a small, family-run Bed & Breakfast-style Rustic Mountain Retreat, designed in the spirit of the Great Lodges of older times and ancient places. Within the lodge we offer three cozy rustic bedrooms with organic sheets and towels, two with separate entrances and porches. We also have a small campground that is available to AT hikers and those wishing for more modest accommodations.​ Many of the neighbors in the immediate area offer Bed and Breakfast options. The last time we held a training here, about half of the participants stayed with neighbors; all had very positive experiences.

Forest Therapy Guide David Kendall has stewarded this beautiful lodge and the nearby Trout Lily farm for many years. The lodge itself is constructed from mostly local materials, many of which were harvested from our own land or reclaimed from old cabins and barns around the Southern Appalachian region. The windows and doors were recycled from the old school house of our local Spring Creek Community. See the lodge's website here.
