Wildberry Lodge is constructed of full length red pine logs, hand peeled, notched and assembled by the handcrafters of Maple Island Log Homes (stained and chinked by the innkeepers). Situated on 34 acres at approx 2700 ft elevation, Wildberry Lodge is just minutes from downtown Asheville, NC. The Great Hall has a massive stacked stone fireplace surrounded by cozy leather furniture, a game table and a 180 degree view of the valley farmlands and distant mountain ranges. This room is great for socializing, sitting by the fire on a cool morning or evening or playing a game of chess. The loft area is equipped with stocked guest refrigerator, satellite television, VCR, DVD and CD player. The Game room has a pool table, table top shuffleboard, infrared sauna and TV for those rainy days or unwinding at the end of the day. Come visit us and enjoy the spectacular mountain views and sunsets from the sundeck, flagstone patio or screened porch or relax in our bentwood hickory rockers on the covered porch.

We are so glad we found Wildberry during our recent trip to Asheville. It was exactly the mountain getaway we were looking for! Breakfast, rooms, common space and their extra special touches really make this place AMAZING!!! We definitely recommend Wildberry and will stay there again if ever in the area.

We arrived late and were stressed from the drive. Our hosts were very understanding and accommodating. The rooms were outstanding. The amazing meals were fabulous and we enjoyed visiting with the other guests. It was one of most memorable trips! THANK YOU! Mary

My wife & I have had the pleasure of staying here, eight times. The mountain views are always spectacular, & never the same. The multiple course breakfasts are truly scrumptious & leave your stomach happy & stuffed. However, the best feature of this place is Ken & Glenda, the innkeepers. They are funny, personable, great listeners, & they will do virtually anything to make your experience a memorable one.

Cozy bed and breakfast

Most Awesome BnB!

The property is gorgeous. The Lodge is gorgeous and the people are so warm and inviting. We felt like part of the family by the time we left. We stayed at 5 different BnB's on our Vaca and this one was by far our favorite. Will definitely come back and recommend to all.

Great Weekend

Wildberry Lodge provided a wonderful experience. The Blackberry Suite was lovely, comfortable, and the view exceptional. The towel warmer was an extra nice touch. Breakfast was excellent everyday, as were the evening snacks.
