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.

Lodging:

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.

Kana’ti has a queen-sized bed and a private bathroom, entrance, and porch. It also has a small writing desk and two comfy reading chairs.

Selu has a queen-sized bed and a private bathroom, entrance, and porch. It also has a small day-bed, writing desk, and one comfy reading chair.

Tlanuwa has two twin-sized beds, which can be combined to create a king-sized bed, and it is the largest of our three rooms. It also has a private bathroom and porch, with an entry from the main room within the lodge and a writing desk and two comfy reading chairs.

All of our rooms are available for the same base rate of $90/ night ( for single occupancy). Each additional person(s) that stays with us adds $30 per person/ night. Therefore, if a couple stays for two nights, the rate would be $120 per night. Those who are age 9 and under stay free of charge!

Food:

*The rates listed above also include a delicious breakfast, provided the morning after each night’s stay.  We proudly strive to serve nutrient-dense foods that are organic, local, and humanely-raised whenever possible. Often times we serve fresh produce from our own Trout Lily Farm, which is located 1 mile down the road, on the way to Max Patch. We can accommodate all types of food preferences, including gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, etc. Please let us know ahead of time if you have specific food sensitivities or allergies so we can be well prepared.

Transportation:

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.
