Looking to get away to the mountains with your family? Tatonka Lodge is the perfect choice for large families, or groups, traveling together!
Our custom log home sits on a private 65 acre buffalo ranch. Enjoy viewing our buffalo when you drive in or stop by in the morning at feeding time! The cabin was completed in early 2008 and is over 3500 square feet, plenty of room for everyone to spread out. So, whether you are looking to hit the slopes at Cataloochee Ski Resort in Maggie Valley (only 12 miles away) or visit the Biltmore Estate in Asheville (only 30 minutes), there is plenty for everyone to do in The Great Smoky Mountains!
Tatonka Lodge, (Indian word for buffalo), is ideal for large families vacationing together because we have 2 master suites which each have private doors leading to the back deck with a fantastic mountain view.
Once inside, you will be in awe of the huge stone fireplace in the great room, surrounded by plenty of seating area for a large group. Also, rest assured the children will be well entertained downstairs in the game room where we have a life size chess set, pool table, air hockey, ping pong & foosball. Also enjoy an evening in our 8 person hot tub out back!
Children will love the hike through the woods to the brand new play area, The BC Corral! This custom designed area has everything from swings, zip line, slides, teeter totter, cargo nets, rock wall & even a horse shoe pit for the adults! The kids will love it here!
If you are looking for a quiet 'get away from it all' retreat, this is it! Enjoy long hikes on the property, fishing on the Pigeon River (within walking distance from the log cabin) or take a trip into town to do some shopping or antiquing.
We are pet friendly, size doesn't matter!
Fun things to do: Great Smoky Mountain Railroad, Biltmore Estate, Ghost Town, hiking at Chimney Rock, tubing at Deep Creek, Fun Factory, Indoor skydiving, visit the Elk in Cataloochee Park, Great Smoky Mountain National Park, take a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, Casino in Cherokee, slide down the rocks at Sliding Rock in the Pisgah National Forest, downhill skiing, snowboarding & tubing at Cataloochee Ski Resort, golf at Waynesville Country Club, Maggie Valley Country Club or Ironduff Golf Course!

We absolutely recommend staying at Tatonka Lodge! It's beautifully spacious, adorably decorated and just a lovely mountain house. We came here to escape a hurricane not knowing what to expect but Cheryl was wonderful to work with, she made everything easy and comfortable for us doing whatever she could to accommodate us. We plan to make a yearly trip back to this beautiful home! Also we had no idea this family was a Christian family but the special touches; bible available and guest book with bible verses were just some of the precious little reminders that made our stay even better!!

Wonderful!! Thanks for taking time to leave us a review...I pray you got home safely & all is well.
Till next time,
Tatonka Lodge is an amazing house that was perfect for our group of 8 adults and 5 kids. There is a game room full of games and ways to entertain our kiddos on rainy days and it's in close proximity to many sources of outdoor entertainment. We went hiking in the surrounding areas and on the grounds. We went to Asheville a couple days and also went tubing in Cherokee. We took the kids to the playground near the house, watched the Bison be fed at the bottom of the hill, and brought quarters for them to feed the other farm animals. We bought some fresh bison for burgers, which was delicious.
The large porch provided a nice place for us to look at the stars, have a few after dinner drinks and enjoy watching the hummingbirds drink the nectar of the flowers down below. Everyone on the farm is super nice and Cheryl responded to our needs immediately. The internet went out for a couple days so you might want to bring your hotspot capabilities on your cell-phone if you need access. Tatonka Lodge overall was a great spot to vacation for us. :-)

Our family had the best time ever. The house was fantastic. . It was very clean and lots of space. We loved spending time outside grilling and using the picnic table. The area and view were so beautiful. It was well stocked and loved using all the entertainment tables in the basement. I am an animal lover. The animals kept me very busy. We enjoyed cooking most nights. We used the big eating table to do a puzzle. We would love to come back. We had a great trip going into Asheville.
