Recently featured in Log Home Living Chestnut Lodge, you will breathe a sigh of nostalgia, gently releasing the present-day stress. The home sits serenely over miles of pastoral fields nestled in between the rolling mountains. Chestnut Lodge is a beautifully-crafted custom Barna log home, with 3000 roomy square feet offering plenty of comfortable crevices. The open floor plan is perfect for gatherings but Chestnut Lodge has lovingly appointed corners with furnishings that invite you to your own personal time.  

The light-filled home has picture-perfect windows framing idyllic scenes of soft valleys, hills and long-range mountains. Sitting in front of the beautiful stone fireplace you will appreciate the home's design inspiration: the decor marries upscale farmhouse and mountain styling with the newest, top of the line finishes — modern fixtures with a hint of vintage. The welcoming kitchen has granite counter tops, an apron farmhouse sink, oil-rubbed bronze fixtures and fine custom cabinets in a time-washed hunter-green stain. Plenty of room for food preparation gives way to an amazing deck outlined with strings of muted lights and an expansive dining table that is perfect for flavorful meals and storytelling. A gorgeous outdoor hearth is also the perfect spot in winter to roast some chestnuts in the fire or marshmallows in the summer as you count the gliding fireflies. 

Great naps await whether on the hammock off of a bedroom porch, or in the five cozy bedrooms with classic mountain-home furnishings, high-thread linens and plush comforters. The five-bedrooms all have their own peaceful views and in total, 14 people can sleep in the home comfortably. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, and three other bedrooms have queen size beds. Farmhouse barn doors pull open on sliders to also reveal a final bedroom with bunks for six, a sure throwback to the best slumber party you can remember. Everyone can also retreat to the home's lower level which offers more living space, a wet bar, regulation billiards table and home theater. The lower level deck provides a great hot tub and viewing spot to take in nature's surround sound from nearby birds chirping or the distant cows settling in for the night.

Chestnut Lodge is a place of true relaxation and one that fulfills the longing of old comforts with a renewed feeling of today. This splendid home is conveniently located in the Morganton area of Blue Ridge, and is close to Lake Blue Ridge as well as all that the region has to offer.

It was a very beautiful place with very beautiful views. Enjoyed our time here. We loved spending time with family in this beautiful home with plenty of bedrooms.

The cabin was generally nice and well maintained. The porches provided great views. This cabin had a hot tub and I don't rent cabins without one.

We loved the peacefulness and opportunity to spend time with family. The grandchildren loved the outdoor fire and making smores. The beds were comfortable and the layout of the cabin was perfect for family and there was plenty of room for all. We enjoyed cooking and playing games in the evening.

Chestnut Lodge was perfect for us. We especially enjoyed being outside on the porch with a great fire. Loved the view and the sunsets! The sitting arrangements inside and out worked well for us and having large dining tables made it easy for meals and playing cards. All bedrooms were used with plenty of room and beds were very comfortable.

We stayed in this cabin 7 years ago and it was the one that always stuck out to us. We love the Morganton area because of its seclusion and beautiful scenery. The trees have grown up quite a bit so the view is somewhat obstructed now. The side porch area is really nice and the hot tub is spacious.
- Jenna , Posted: 10/09/2020
View was spectacular
- Nicole , Posted: 08/07/2020
We loved the ample seating outdoors to be able to enjoy the beautiful view. The two chimneys were a group favorite, and was our main hangout area at the cabin. The kitchen setup its great with, especially with the center island.

The design of the house was intimate and allowed us to interact with our guests easily. There were options for outdoor entertainment (fireplace) which we also liked.

03/19 - We enjoyed the space this home offered. We were traveling with 11 people, and the space perfectly fit our needs. Our favorite spot was the outdoor fireplace! I’m impressed with your company. We had a problem with the indoor fireplace not staying lit. The house manager on duty came out at night and fixed it for us. Your company is top notch.

11/15- The cabin had everything, the right number of and perfect size bedrooms, abundance of outdoor space, updated and eye catching bathrooms. ample fireplaces, panoramic views throughout home.It  was breathtaking. Everything a host could need and want was readily available. Open floor plan with views to my family throughout the home was a added bonus. I enjoyed seeing their faces throughout our stay. This was my first experience with Escapetoblueridge and I must say it was indeed a pleasant one. Thank you, for making this an easy and enjoyable experience for me and my family. Our memories will last forever.

11/14- The home and the view were better than expected. We loved everything about it, however, we were not told that the gas fireplace was not working, which was a huge disappointment for everyone, since it was cold and snowing. Other than that, it was amazing!! The staff are friendly and helpful. The emails were timely.
- Lisa
03/16- Everything was prepared when we walked in the door. Hot Tub was heated, ice in the freezer, clean and inviting.
- Michael
03/16- Chestnut Lodge is awesome! We mostly enjoyed the outdoor covered 'porch' area, complete with a long table, few chairs, and outdoor fireplace. We LOVED the outdoor lights draping across, and the firepit wood- thanks! The hammock and pool table were other favorite features. The beds (especially the master) were very comfortable! The master shower is great. We loved the huge porches & beautiful views. The barn doors in the basement are a fantastic touch. Very 'cabiny' feel throughout the house, which is what we were looking for. Everything was as it seemed in the photos and description; very accurate. We loved it & hope to come back!
- Laura
08/16- Chestnut Lodge was beautiful, though the gravel road was a bit challenging. The Enchanting Forest loop was beautiful and provided a nice (if steep) place to walk, and the views over the valley were amazing. The spacious table on the deck and in the kitchen offered lots of room for everyone to eat together, but there was plenty of room to spread out inside. The chairs in the loft provide a great place to enjoy the view and a nice breeze off the mountain, and the beds were comfortable. We are looking forward to going back in the future.
- Kelly
01/15- View was awesome! Space was larger than it looks. Outdoor fireplace and hot tub was very nice although we did not choose to use the hot tub.
- Wyatt
01/17- The balcony and the view is spectacular! Professional, organized, & pleasant to deal with.
- Rojiar
08/15- The cabin had tremendous space that allowed privacy among our guests.
- Tameka
07/15- Chestnut Lodge was beautifully designed and planned, but it was worn and not clean. When we arrived we walked through cobwebs and one of the beds upstairs had an insect between the sheets. Everything was thick in dust. We liked the house but had a bummer first impression. It seemed like the \"checklist cleaning\" items were complete such as number of dish towels, bath towels, soaps ... but no sign of actual cleaning. We called the morning after our arrival and were told that someone would make it by, but no one ever showed up. We finally just washed all of our linens and cleaned the main living and kitchen areas, knocking down webs and cleaning the top of the refrigerator and island lights. These were so thick in dust we could write on them with our finger. This was our summer vacation and we invested in the lodge based on the perfect photos shown online. We are \"country people\" and understand it is hard to control bugs and spiders, but this house was just plain dirty. We are so disappointed and feel mislead by what we understood we were getting for our investment. After paying a cleaning fee, we expected a clean cabin. We are interested to see what you will do to make this right.

02/15- Amount of sleeping capacity. Great view. Great home. Plenty of linens. Everything was great. Weather was cold. That's what we expect when we are in the mountains. Grandkids loved it.
- Toby
02/17- Our favorite features of the home were the view and the outdoor areas. Great overall experiences and quick responses
- Matthew
08/17- The view, and the cozy cabin feel perfect for a family reunion. Outdoor fireplace on porch was used daily! The decks are awesome! Glad they don't have too many games like some cabins! All of us including the kids spent quality time outdoors hiking and enjoying the mountain air! Very professional, courteous, and friendly!
- Rick
07/17- We loved the view from the porch! We were extremely impressed when we called about the grill not working. They had a guy that was there to fix it in about 30 min.

06/18 - Enjoyed the hot tub and checkers on the deck. Very impressed with Escape to Blue Ridge. Gave great instructions and feedback.

- Brandon

07/18 - The cabin itself with so many beds and the secluded location in the mountains worked great for our mom's 83rd birthday! We had a great time! Escape to Blue Ridge is my go-to cabin rental company for probably five times running now. Had experiences with others -- not so great -- but no issues at all with Escape to Blue Ridge.

- Scott
12/15- Nice house. No heat though.
- Benjamin
09/17- The view was hands down the most stunning feature of the home - it is even better in person than in the pictures. Simply stunning. The outdoor gathering area and fireplace was also a key feature for our group, as well as the many bedrooms spread over 3 different floors of the house. It was a perfect location for our group of 11. I did have a couple of questions for the staff at Escape to Blue Ridge before our arrival, and both times I was contacted back and assisted immediately. I was impressed because this is not the experience I have had in the past with other companies.
- Sara
05/17- The floor plan allowed everyone their own space, we enjoyed having different areas to hang out each night. (Jacuzzi, fireplace outside). Very kind and helpful staff.
- Elissha
06/17- The cabin layout was perfect. We were traveling with three families and the separation of floors and full baths on each worked out exactly as we hoped. Also, the game room with pool table, full size checkers on the deck, hammock and hot tub were all a huge hit. Our interaction with the company was very limited but not lacking. Everything was as described and very user friendly

- Lew-ann

06/18 - This home was gorgeous! Perfect getaway with multiple families. There was plenty of space for kids and adults. When we first booked the cabin, I had several questions regarding activities and hikes for kids. The person I spoke with directed me to a source to plan out our weekend. Our long weekend couldn't have been any better!

- Michele
07/18 - The size and location are great. Lots of things to do in this area and with a large home it’s fun to gather as multiple families and enjoy together.
