About the property

Lodging For Up To 23 With Beautiful Mountain Views

The House of Joy is your own private mountain retreat in the heart of the Appalachians. There are spectacular views from the front of the spacious wrap-around deck, and soothing breezes and sitting areas on all three sides of the deck. . This lodge is set on 40 private acres, with your own personal hiking trails that extend to the top of the mountain. The House of Joy has a huge great room with gas fireplace and giant flat screen TV (for watching movies on Netflix or the DVD player), and full kitchen adjacent to it. This great room is perfect for large gatherings, with tables and seating for 48, and much additional seating on the deck. Two half baths are also on this floor.

Downstairs are four family-sized bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed and a loft area for the kids. Each bedroom has access to the downstairs stone porch. Two full baths (with showers) are also downstairs, at each end of the hall. Additional beds include a pull-out sofa bed (double), and full size futon and one cot. The recreation room is on the top floor, and houses various games, as well as its own breathtaking view.

A large firepit area with stone and wood-bench seating is next to the House of Joy.

Outdoor games: Tetherball, horse-shoe toss & bean-bag toss (corn hole).

Also included for your enjoyment: DVD's and video tapes, books and games.

Wi-Fi is provided.

Large-screened TV only receives Netflix or DVD's, no cable or satellite access.

The laundry room houses a washer and dryer.

Linens are provided for each bed.

Towels are provided.

The kitchen has a standard fridge and stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, trash compactor, coffee maker, toaster, two double-sinks, and plenty of dinnerware and cookware.

No smoking is permitted inside.

No AC (the high elevations provide cooler weather), and there is a fan in each room.

The House of Joy is only open from April to December each year.

The House of Joy is close to popular Maggie Valley and historic Waynesville, as well as the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and the Blue Ridge parkway. It takes about 45 minutes to drive to Asheville. Area activities include white water rafting, horseback riding, body flying (over a wind tunnel), fishing, hiking, shopping, gem mining, golfing, hot air ballooning and mountain biking. For more information and links to area attractions, go to (website: hidden).

The House of Joy is a special, peace-filled place. We hope you will come and experience it for yourself.

Driving tips: The last half mile leading up to the House of Joy is gravel and moderately steep. Most front-wheel drive vehicles don't have any problem, but some rear-wheel drive vehicles find they sometimes lose traction on the gravel. As you are going uphill on the steeper parts of the gravel roads, it helps to keep a steady speed and not stop. If you do find you are losing traction, just stop and back up to a flatter part of the road, and try again. When you are heading back down the steeper parts of the mountain roads, make sure to keep the transmission in a lower gear in order to save wear-and-tear on your breaks.
