Douglas Lake Lodge in the Smoky Mountains
The Douglas Lake Lodge experience begins when you enter the iron gates and stone pillars. As you pull up the circular driveway your eyes widen with delight taking in the generous porch and interesting gables and architectural lines. You’re tempted to just plop down on the front porch and take a deep breath gazing into the woods. The double front doors entice you inside to see what awaits. The large entryway displays the beginning of the floor to ceiling glass panels that soothe your eyes.
Flat Creek Lodge offers five more than ample bedrooms, a small bedroom and a loft above the kitchen with eight single beds which are accessed by way of a sleek spiral wood staircase attached to a field stone fireplace that stretches 28 feet high.
In summary, there are two king beds, two queen beds, one double bed and 11 single beds available.
16 beds and half a dozen couches for sleeping are available, 2 1/2 baths upstairs, one downstairs full bath , and a full bath in the pool house and an outdoor shower.
There is ample parking available and 100 acres to explore. Also down the hill is a dock and private cove for swimming.
