Bryson City, North Carolina
Close to Bryson City and the Polar Express; this very unique and secluded structure was originally built to be a school house and now serves as an excellent place to host large and small groups alike visiting the Smokies. As you begin the 3 mile drive from the Smoky Mountain Country Club, and “civilization”, up the winding gravel mountain road you can let all of your cares disappear. Once you pass the gates and arrive on the property, you will emerge out of the morning mountain fog and overhead trees to the delightful opening on which the property rests. Once you have parked your vehicle, enjoy the peaceful sounds of the mountain streams on both sides of the lodge. There is signage for the Upper and Lower Hive to assist you with parking.

Owner responded almost immediately to emails. Facilities were beyond our expectations. Outstanding views and peaceful surroundings. Great place to get away. Great for guests with limited mobility on both levels.

About the neighborhood
The Hive Lodge is a truly secluded cabin in the woods. Private yet centrally located 12 miles from Bryson City and Cherokee.
Getting around
Please note some people are not comfortable driving two wheel drive up the two steep incline turns. Four wheel drive is not necessary but makes some who are not used to mountain roads a bit more comfortable. We have had about every type of vehicle up to the Lodge with no issues; it really is about guests comfort level with mountain roads. Please maintain a 10-12 MPH speed limit to have the best ride up. Four wheel drive is a must in the event of inclement weather.

How to get there
This is a secluded cabin in the woods. The only way to achieve this is to take the two mile state maintained gravel road. Please note some people are not comfortable driving two wheel drive up the two steep incline turns. Four Wheel drive is recommended if possible but not necessary. It makes some who are not used to mountain roads a bit more comfortable(like all of us city folk:). We have had about every type of vehicle up to the Lodge with no issues; it really is about guests comfort level with mountain roads. Please place your vehicle in second gear and maintain a 10-20MPH speed limit to have the best ride up. Four wheel drive is a must in the event of inclement weather.
