Earthshine Lodge has two buildings on 80 acres of farm and forest land that borders Pisgah National Forest. The rustic accommodations are perfect for those who want to get outdoors and come back to a clean shower and real bed. The rooms listed here are for the lodge. Each room has a queen bed, loft with 2 twins, and private bathroom. On site, Hicampers can hike, fish in our pond, walk in our creek and enjoy a natural rock slide, try out our climbing wall or ropes course. We are located in Transylvania County, Land of the Waterfalls and Mountain Biking Mecca, so there are endless outdoor activities in the area including waterfall viewing, hikes, mountain biking, fly fishing, tubing, horseback riding, etc. We border Pisgah National Forest, but are also within close driving distance of Gorges State Park (Rainbow Falls), DuPont Forest, and Nantahala National Forest.

Beautiful lodge and views
The hosts were accommodating and stayed up late to meet us upon our arrival. The rooms were clean and well kept. The bed was very comfortable, and there was plenty of space upstairs for children or shorter people to stay.
I don’t feel that the the stay was worth the money we spent. The hipcamp listing was unclear to me, and I was under the impression that we would be in our own cabin. The lodge is one building and has rooms throughout, plus a common lounge area, main level, upstairs, and covered deck dining areas. There were not many guests there while we we there and it was quiet. I would stay here again, but only it was about half of what I paid this time or there were more experiences included in the price (~160 after hipcamp fee).
Rustic lodge in a magical spot near Lake Toxaway. Sat on the deck with coffee looking out over the Great Smokey Mountains; Explored the trails around the property. Meals were down-home goodness, and there's beer, cider, and wine available with dinner (yay!). Shelby (the chef) was very accommodating about my teenager's dietary limitations. Accommodations were simple and very comfortable.
