Cabin Holiday Rental
Viking Mountain Lodge is an old, 2200 square foot log cabin located inside the Cherokee National Forest near the Appalachian Trail. The cabin sits high up in the Smoky Mountains about halfway between the quaint mountain town of Hot Springs, North Carolina and the historic town of Greeneville, Tennessee. The two story structure is made of rough cut hemlock logs that are hand hewn on the exterior side. With four bedrooms and two full bathrooms, VML has the ability to sleep 15 guests making it well suited to large groups or family reunions. VML overlooks Paint Creek which runs the width of the three acre property. Whether you’re sitting on the front porch in the handmade cypress furniture, on the deck in the rocking/adirondack chairs, or inside with the windows open, you can listen to the pe...Viking Mountain Lodge is an old, 2200 square foot log cabin located inside the Cherokee National Forest near the Appalachian Trail.

VML overlooks Paint Creek which runs the width of the three acre property. Whether you’re sitting on the front porch in the handmade cypress furniture, on the deck in the rocking/adirondack chairs, or inside with the windows open, you can listen to the peaceful melody from the rushing waters of Paint Creek. Our guests frequently comment that this alone is worth trip to Viking Mountain Lodge. There is a fire pit in the front yard down by the water’s edge for roasting marshmallows or keeping warm on a cool evening. You can trout fish in the creek or catch bream in the larger of the two ponds on the property. Go for a day hike on the AT. Have a picnic on top of Camp Creek Bald. Go whitewater rafting on the French Broad River. Fly fish Big Laurel Creek. Head to historic Greeneville Tennessee and visit one of the many museums. Most of all, RELAX! Although the cabin is rustic, it has all of the amenities of home; a large, fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, linens, towels, wood stove, gas fireplace, 6 brand new 5 blade Hunter ceiling fans, gas/charcoal/smoker combination grill, and even a 50” High Definition Plasma TV with 7.1 surround sound for those cold or rainy days. All of this in a spacious, clean cabin decorated with numerous Bev Doolittle prints and many pieces of antique furniture.More

About the neighbourhood
Viking Mountain Lodge is an old, rustic, hand hewn log cabin near the Appalachian Trail in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. It overlooks Paint Creek and is located about halfway between the quaint mountain town of Hot Springs, NC and historic Greeneville, TN. VML is large enough to sleep 15 people in beds, and provides an excellent jumping off point for all kinds of outdoor adventures. Backpacking the Appalachian Trail, whitewater rafting the French Broad, zip lining through the Smokys, fly fishing the Laurel River, mountain biking the Paint Creek Trails, kayaking on the Nolichucky, and horseback riding through National Forest, just to name a few. VML is available as a vacation rental for large groups, family reunions, or couples just looking to get away from it all.
