Kana’ti Lodge Vacation Retreat

Welcome to Kana’ti Lodge Vacation Retreat!

We are a small, family-run Bed & Breakfast-style Rustic Mountain Retreat, designed in the spirit of the Great Lodges of older times and ancient places, nestled deep in the mountains of Southern Appalachia along the North Carolina/ Tennessee border.

The name Kana’ti is in honor of the first chief of the first people: The Cherokee and earlier Woodland tribes who, according to archaeological evidence, used this area for thousands of years as a hunting ground for Mammoth, Bison, Elk and Deer migrating up and down the Bald Mountain Ranges as the ice caps retreated northward.

The lodge itself is constructed of mostly local materials, many of which were reclaimed from old cabins and barns around the Southern Appalachian region. Every part of the building tells a story – the passing age of tobacco in barn poles and hand-rived stakes, restored windows and doors from a local school, and flooring and siding harvested from our own land.

Rooms

We offer three cozy, rustic rooms located within the lodge. Each room is uniquely different in it’s interior design and layout, and all of them have their own private bathroom and porch. Two of the rooms, Kana’ti and Selu, also boast a private exterior access,  while the third room Tlanuwa is accessible from the lodge’s main room.

Location & Directions

Latitude:  35.7898   (35 degrees, 47.4 minutes North)

Longitude:  – 82.9448  (82 degrees, 56.7 minutes West)

From Knoxville:
Take I-40 towards Asheville. After crossing the TN/NC state line, take Exit 7/ Harmon Den. At the bottom of the ramp, go Left under the overpass onto Cold Springs Rd. Continue for about 6.5 – 7 miles on this gravel road, following signs towards Max Patch. At the top of the mountain, the road ends in a “Lazy Y” type intersection. Turn back to your left onto Max Patch Rd., and go a couple hundred yards, where you’ll then turn right onto Little Creek Rd.

Follow Little Creek Rd. for about 1 mile, and then turn left onto Poplar Gap Rd., which is a paved road. Go about one mile, over the top of a ridge, past a small cemetery, and then turn left on to Poplar Ridge Lane (which is our driveway). Across from Poplar Ridge Lane will be a large black mailbox with Kana’ti Lodge posted on the side.

  1. Love what we see from the Web site. Information is pretty clear and the photos are intriguing. One question: is there a hot tub available for guests?
    We are planning a NC mountain vacation in the next few weeks. What availability do you have for a couple?
    Thanks
    Paul and Jeanne Marie from Florida
