2345 Mill Creek Rd
Old Fort, NC 28762


If you are looking for a gathering place for a family reunion, a location for an outdoor wedding, or a quite place for a business retreat Round Knob Lodge is a perfect fit. 

The estate, only 40 minutes from Asheville, encompasses 20 acres of beautiful private land including an active trout stream, two small stocked ponds, dozens of quiet places to sit and reflect, a beautifully renovated historic lodge with space for everyone, a wonderful large game/recreation room with flat screens, several huge fireplaces throughout, over 1000 sq. feet of outdoor living space, and so much more. 

Built by Southern Railway executives in the early 1930's as a retreat, it has been expanded and remodeled to provide modern conveniences while maintaining the relaxed feel of a rustic retreat. Train enthusiasts will enjoy the many antique railroad items sprinkled throughout the lodge.  The Lodge is also adjacent to Andrew’s Geyser with open views of the geyser directly out of the large living room windows.  With 6 bedrooms, 5 and 1/2 baths, wireless internet, a game room with a pool table, large flat screens, an IPOD doc with speaker system, and even an elevator, this historic lodge is a perfect location for your family gathering, corporate retreat, golf weekend, or wedding venue.
