Stay with Us
Discover the spirit of Kanuga.
For nearly 100 years, Kanuga has provided respite from the disconnected pace of everyday life—a chance to rediscover what really matters. Unplug and reclaim family time, take a deep breath of mountain air, worship immersed in God’s holy creation. Kanuga is a place to connect with oneself, others, nature, and Creation. It’s a place of spirit, wonder, joy, and gratitude where the simple things take on deep meaning, and less becomes so much more.
Three Ways to Stay
Guest Period Weeks
An entire week filled with delicious meals and activities!
Year-round solo, couples, and family getaways with 2-, 3-, or 4-night minimum stays
Tent, van, or truck camping sites available seasonally
Kanuga requires that all Kanuga staff and guests over the age of two wear face coverings when inside Kanuga’s public spaces. This is for both the unvaccinated and vaccinated.
This is to protect young children and others who are unable to be vaccinated as well as those among us who are immunocompromised. This guidance is also designed to protect the vaccinated from break-through infection. Please wash your hands and/or use hand sanitizer frequently. (Health and safety protocols are subject to change.)
GUEST COTTAGES, GUEST HOUSES
Each historic cottage or guest house features a porch, living room with fireplace, and plenty of charm. Accommodations range in size from one to six bedrooms and each is equipped with a mini-refrigerator and microwave. Per-night rates vary depending on the number of bedrooms and cottage amenities. Firewood for your guest cottage or guest house is available from Kanuga Market for purchase in bundles.
KANUGA LAKE INN
Adjacent to the main Lodge and renovated in 2016, the inn offers comfortable, hotel-style rooms with air conditioning and an elevator. Each floor has a communal rocking chair balcony overlooking the lake.
PRIMITIVE CAMPING – COVERED WAGON MEADOW
These dry-camping sites are located in and near the old “Covered Wagon” meadow. One-way, drive-up access is on a very narrow, gravel/dirt, winding road. The site includes non-potable water, a port-o-let, picnic tables, and community fire pits. This area is designated for dry camping only (no sewer, showers, or electricity).
Campsite guests have access to Kanuga’s 20 miles of hiking trails, Kanuga Lake, the playground, tennis courts, gymnasium, and other complimentary areas based on availability. Scheduled activities and dining are not included in the camping fee. World-class downhill mountain biking is available for a fee through Ride Kanuga.
