Looking to get away to the mountains with your family? Tatonka Lodge is the perfect choice for large families, or groups, traveling together!
Our log cabin is located in the Smoky Mountains on a 65 acre buffalo ranch. Come enjoy Gods country!

Enjoy viewing our buffalo when you drive in or stop by in the morning at feeding time! The cabin 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!

Bedroom #1 = King log bed
Bedroom #2 = King log bed
Bedroom #3 = Queen log bed
Bedroom #4 = Twin covered wagon bed & twin over full bunk bed
Loft= 2 full size bunk beds

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 toter, 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 hope many wonderful memories will be made while vacationing at Tatonka Lodge!

My brothers, my husband & I had shared a vision of expanding my fathers buffalo ranch when additional property became available to purchase. With all our knowledge & experiences combined we have built 5 log homes, restored 2 train cabooses & 1 home and built the BC Depot! We started our 1st vacation rental in 2004.

Once my husband retires from the US Army in about 3 yrs our dream will be to build our log cabin on the property & be more hands on. God has blessed us beyond our wildest dreams. First w/ our 4 boys & then with our family business.

We hope you love the mountains like we have all come to love being transplants from a very flat NY! It's such a pleasure to welcome guest to this beautiful area.
