The Great Smoky MountainsWe know of no other spot like the Land Creek Lodge anywhere in The Great Smoky Mountains. There are 18 different cabins spread throughout our 80-acre grounds at Lands Creek Log Cabins, but none compare with the overall experience of The Lodge, both indoors and out.

mountain viewsRelaxation should be what vacation time is about; you can count on Mother Nature do her part. A self-contained, genuine mountain experience begins the moment you arrive. Over 800 feet of bold creek cascade past the covered screened porch and the outdoor campfire area. Creekside horseshoe pits, along with plenty of level open yard space, make it a great spot for family fun. You may not get back in the car until it’s time to head back home!


family reunion venueOur multiple cabins in a variety of sizes and settings make our grounds a popular spot for family reunions. The Lands Creek Lodge provides the space for a “mini-reunion” on its own, or the centerpiece for the large family events that we often host here on our grounds.

The overnight guest capacity for The Lodge is considered 16 people, but that still leaves plenty of room to entertain guests who are staying in other cabins as part of your reunion group.


outdoor weddingThe grounds of Lands Creek Log Cabins and Harmony Hall have quickly become popular with those looking for something other than “the same old wedding spot.” Our location in the heart of The Great Smoky Mountains makes us a popular pick for a “destination” wedding spot that is centralized to most anywhere along the East Coast. The addition of The Lands Creek Lodge provides the space needed for lodging larger groups of couples, with 6 private bedrooms. This often works well for members of the wedding party and their spouses who may wish to lodge as a group but still have individual privacy.

mountain wedding venueThe Lands Creek Lodge can also be considered for smaller weddings. We have hosted many with great success. The use of The Lodge for wedding and party events is considered on a case-by-case basis depending upon size of group, time of year, length of stay and parking issues. Rates would be based upon the same considerations.

Meetings, Seminars & Corporate Events

MoonshadowTeam-building and fellowship away from the trappings of everyday life can be the foundation for a memorable and motivational experience here on the grounds of Lands Creek Log Cabins.

We’ve hosted many meetings and events here on our grounds. Our group guests include: Owens Corning, Dial Soap, Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, Rounder Records, Hawthorne Management, to list a few.

The game room has it all, with ping pong, foosball and a pool table for a chance to have some fun and take some bragging rights back home! You can take it outdoors for some creekside horseshoes, or just relaxation and a chance to unwind by the campfire. The opportunity to get some work done and still have some play time makes this a perfect setting for those who enjoy not only working together but being together.
