Peace Mountain Lodge is ideal for a family vacation or multi-families. Each of the 5 well furnished bedrooms has its own full bathroom. Enjoy your own suite should you want to get away for peace and quiet. The Large Kitchen/Dining/Living Room spans the main floor level and is large enough to entertain more than the 10-12 people that sleep at the house. Downstairs the large bar area with sound system and one of 7 flat screen HD televisions is also a great place to entertain. High Speed Internet and free WiFi are available throughout the home if you wish to stay connected to the outside world, along with landline telephones with free long distance.

The amazing wood-filled interior and decks remind you of the cabin feel in the size and comfort of a great lodge, but a private home for you and your family/friends.

The panoramic mountain views from the two covered decks are spectacular, enjoy all of the changes nature brings from these decks. Relax, or dine outside with plenty of deck furnishings. Grill up a great meal on the back deck barbecue grill.

Every season offers a different experience. Spring is vibrant and stunning as everything blossoms and turns green. Summer is cool and refreshing, seldom getting warmer than 80 degrees during the day, about 60 degrees at night. Enjoy the beauty of the mountains as the leaves change in Fall. Winter usually delivers several dustings of Snow which accumulates to about 4 - 6 inches. Nearby brooks babble through the night during and after rainy days. Nearby hiking trails traverse streams, enjoy the water view as the streams cascade down slick rock covered creek beds.

About John Peace

Hello I'm John Peace. Alesa, my wife, and our son Jonathan enjoy the Mountains of Western North Carolina. Peace Mountain Lodge is hidden away in a very relaxing, private gated community known as Cedar Hill. We spend several weekends a year there and invite you to do the same. Whether you load up a group of friends for a long weekend excursion, or plan a family get together, your vacation getaway at Peace Mountain Lodge will provide for a fun filled but relaxing escape in the serenity of the mountain vistas.

John Peace purchased this house in 2004

Why John Peace chose Cedar Hill

Cashiers North Carolina is beautiful! Escape to another world. The air is clean, the water is pure. Nature surrounds you with beautiful trees, rolling mountains, surprise visits from wildlife, great trails to hike, lakes to swim, fish, and entertain, golf courses, horseback riding, and is nearby to towns for shopping, the Blue Ridge Parkway for a breathtaking drive, Nantahala Forest for beauty and whitewater rafting, Asheville for additional sightseeing, but you come "home" to your mountain paradise. The people of this region are wonderful and the restaurants are fantastic. Only 50 minutes from Asheville airport 2 hrs from Greenville/Spartanburg airport.

What makes this house unique

Peace Mountain Lodge is unique in that you are secluded from the hustle and bustle of life. Tucked away in the gated Cedar Hill Community that is safe, clean, quiet, and beautiful, and yet you can be in town within 5 minutes. There's plenty of room to entertain guests with 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths spanning the three floors, a large bar & great room downstairs, a large living room & dining area on main floor, and 2 covered decks overlooking the incredible view of Big Sheepcliff Mountain.

Amazing home! You will not be disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Peace Mountain Lodge for the first time for Spring Break. Let me tell you, it is the most amazing spacious home ever!! With 5 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, every room with it's own tv, all of the things that you need in the kitchen, a grocery store close by, washer and dryer if you need it, you seriously never have to leave the home if you don't want to. Amazing views of the NC mountains, and the hosts are absolutely the sweetest and easily accessible if you need them. This was our first stay but it definitely will not be our last! Book with Peace Mountain Lodge, you won't regret it! There is also a park close by that we were able to take our kids to and they loved it! Thanks so much for the beautiful home to stay in!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at Peace Mountain Lodge and loved it. Beautiful, spacious house. Provided plenty of room for two families and 6 kids ages 6-16. The central room in front of the fireplace is a great gathering spot for a crowd. There's also plenty of room to spread out with 3 levels and a King bed in each room. We would definitely stay there again!

Amazing house that was ideal for our 5-couple 50th birthday celebration!

  • 5 of 5

Peace Mountain Lodge was a perfect location for 5 couples to spend the holiday weekend. With 5 king bedrooms and attached bathrooms, there was no drawing straws for rooms! The landlord, John Peace was so easy to work with and returned calls and emails immediately. A wonderful experience and one we will definitely want to repeat!

Another Peace "full" stay

  • 5 of 5

Our second time to Peace Mountain Lodge. Four couples spent a a relaxing week making memories in this spacious and beautiful home. Located in quiet Cedar Hill community this home is central to all types of activities.

We hiked, (found some new trails) shopped, and dined.(found some new restaurants) Cashiers is a great location. After a day of adventure it was such a pleasure to return home and sit on the deck (one of the big reasons for a return visit) with it's beautiful view. The house is fully equipped with all the amenities that make for an enjoyable stay. Gourmet kitchen, a dream to cook in along with outdoor grill made for fun nights when we stayed in.

As from our first encounter John is a pleasure to work with making sure all is in order.

We hope to be back again for a little more "Peace"
