The Lodge at Cat Creek is located in the mountains of Western North Carolina, surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the Holly Springs Community of Macon County, NC.

We have nine one-bedroom suites, all with private baths, including a bridal suite and dressing area. Suites have personal kitchen areas and also screened-in porches. Some porches have wooden swings to make you feel even more comfortable (a great place to read a good book or simply relax).The historic town of Franklin is less than two miles away, with many interesting things to do.

In addition to suites in the Lodge we also have a Cozy Cabin available for guests. Amenities include sleeping accommodations for eight guests, private bathroom, full kitchen, laundry room with washer and dryer, and private porch.

Our property includes a fire pit to relax by in the evening, horseshoes, and a large screened-in porch with grills for cooking out. Enjoy cookies and coffee or tea in the afternoon and logon to your laptop in front of our fireplace in cooler weather.

Enjoy dinner and then a show at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts, where there is a show scheduled almost every weekend.
