Ridge view lodge Smoky mountains Coming 2019

Ridge View Lodge – coming in 2019!

What is Ridge View Lodge?

Ridge View Lodge will be a “sister property” to Blue Mountain Lodge, located higher up the on the same street. It is a totally custom designed hybrid log and heavy timber mountain home. 

What is special about Ridge View Lodge? 

It took us about 3 years of drawing plans, trying out ideas, and verifying every little detail before we took the plans to the architects to be finalized. There is no other cabin like this in existence! Inside, the roof is supported by exposed Douglas Fir timber beams fashioned into soaring scissor trusses.  Not a spec of drywall inside, – all wood and custom finishes.  It will have 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, a mountain view, 2 family rooms, 2nd floor game room, a fire pit and much more. 

When is it going to be available?

Unlike tract built conventional houses, custom built log homes take much longer to build because everything is specific to the given home and they have labor intensive features not found in conventional construction. We expect completion some time in 2019.
