No place embodies all of that better than Century View Lodge by Kerith House. From the very first moment, you can’t help but feel your whole body relax as you soak in the incredible distant mountain views while you rock on the porch or put your feet up around a fire.
The inside of Century View is every bit as soothing and relaxing as the outside. Comfort and luxury surround you with stylish furnishings and original artwork in this four- bedroom, three and a half bath lodge. When it’s time to dine, with brands like Calphalon and Henckel, the cooks’ kitchen is full of everything you need to make sumptuous meals for your getaway.
Each of the bedrooms, Mountain Laurel, Aska Adventure, Toccoa, and Overlook, are designed to represent different aspects of life in Blue Ridge.
