We spent two days up in Charit Creek Lodge this past week and it was wonderful. The accomadations though rustic are fantastic if you are a history buff. You stay in a log cabin that was in existence 100 years ago and has remained the same. Oh you don't have electricity well guess what that is the way it used to be. They have bath houses that have flush toilets and hot showers but you will stay in a cabin that has a simple propane lantern for light and a wood stove stove for heat. The dining area is the same motiff, so if you can't live without xbox and video games this is not the place for you but if you want to enjoy life as it was meant to be with babbling brooks, deer in the meadow and moonlit nights this is your place. This place is a must, rediscover back porches, rocking chairs and a good book. There is easy access to a multitude of great hiking trails and if you enjoy horseback riding look up Southeastpacktrips they can arrange rides from the lodge throughout the entire park. (ask for Larry) he was fantastic and catered to all our wishes. The lodge serves breakfast and dinner which is a welcome retreat after a long day of riding. This place is no longer owned by the LeConte lodge and is not located in Seiverville. It is in the Big South Fork recreational area only a couple of hours from Knoxville and Nashville. Areas such as these are disappearing it is pure joy to be able to experience one that is still up and running.
