Family Christmas Vacation
5/5 stars
The house was stunning and ideal for our Christmas getaway. Full of charm and history, it provided a cozy and welcoming home for the holidays! With features like the theater room, pool table, and hot tub, everyone had a great time and plenty to do. It was impeccably clean, well-equipped, and made it easy for us to feel right at home!

Great Time!
5/5 stars
Me and my husband and my 2 fur babies really had an amazing time during this stay. This home is beautiful and stocked with everything you could ever imagine to cook with. I usually have to bring all kinds of things to cook with at most stays but I didn’t have to use anything of my own. The theater room was really cool. Everything was cozy and clean. The only thing I could say bad was the pool needed to be cleaned. It had a lot of dirt in the bottom. I’m sure if we would have called about it they would have sent someone to clean it but we choose not to and cleaned it ourselves. Hottub was great and super super hot. Communication with the host was great and we can’t wait to return. Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us!
- Ashley

Beautiful home
5/5 stars
Our family, that made up 4 generations stayed here is this wonderful old comfortable home for 4 nights! We loved every minute of it! The house is spacious so we could spread out! So many options of fun things to do! The adults loved playing pool, cards and board games at the huge round table in the dining room. The kids loved the theatre, swimming pool and spa. We didn't have to go anywhere! The house had everything we needed and wanted! The town is very small, so there really isn't much to do there. We went to Lake Logan and Chimney Rock one day! Hope to be back!!
- Ami

Ami, Thank you for your stay and review of Blue Ridge Lodge. We are happy that your family of four generations enjoyed this beautiful home. We are glad that the accommodations met your needs. Remarkably, your family could also enjoy some of the incredible amenities there. Please allow us to host you again soon! iTrip Charlotte Team

This was such an awesome home with all of the bells and whistles! We had so much fun outside in the pool and hot tub- the kids had the best time watching movies and playing Xbox in the theater room. Beds were very comfy and kitchen was well equipped with any and all appliances we needed. I highly recommend this property!

We had a great time! The house is spacious and was clean. It was to cold to swim which was sad, but the hot tub made everyone happy! The movie room was a big hit for young, old, and those in between. Everyone enjoyed to popcorn 🍿! Would definitely consider it again if we were in the area!

Thanksgiving in NC
5/5 stars
My family and I had a wonderful time . The house was very spacious and warm. The house had everything we needed plus more. The game room was a big hit. The only sad part was that we could not enjoy the backyard at night because the lights did not work. I would love to come back during a warm season to enjoy the pool. Thanks for letting my family stay at your home.
- Jakara

Thank you for your review, Jakara. The BLUE RIDGE LODGE has rules about lights on after a certain time to enhance the star-filled sky views. Thank you for your stay! -iTrip Vacations Charlotte Team

Great house
5/5 stars
I loved our stay in this amazing house! Excellent house for entertaining a little crowd. The theater room with recliners and a giant oversized fuzzy beanbag along with a movie theater popcorn machine and bar area provided a great relaxing atmosphere for kiddos and adults! The pool table and plethora of board games kept everyone entertained. Outside we enjoyed the heated pool, hot tub, and fire pit! This place has so much charm! Some of my favorite features were the round table in the dining room, original old wooden doors, the little library area, and coffee/tea bar area! I can’t wait to go back again someday! Highly recommend!
