MOUNTAIN BROOK LODGE AND COTTAGES - STILL THE AUTHENTIC SMOKY MOUNTAIN COTTAGE EXPERIENCE...
* The 1937 FARMHOUSE COMMONS *
Cool and shady, high on the hill overlooking Cowee gap and a spectacular view of the Cowee mountains, the delightful Farmhouse commons was the private home of the previous owners of Clarks Cottages/Mountain Brook Cottages, and a working farm for their restaurant until the 1950's. With its large wrap around porch and rockers, right by the tumbling creek and bridge to the historic cottages, the Farmhouse is a delightful place to meet and linger year round. The library (books and DVD's), puzzles, gameroom, picnic tables, swings, and yard games are available for guest use 24/7 - guests have a key for access. Over the years our guests have enjoyed our lovely commons for gathering and relaxing, and our fabulous front porch music concerts, featuring Lew Gelfond and his versatile band from Asheville.
Fully outfitted modern kitchen, multiple indoor and outdoor dining areas, covered grills, large wrap around porch with swing and rockers, and spectacular views and cool mountain breezes...it doesn't get better than this! Friends and family of guests (up to 50 total) may join guests of Mountain Brook for PRE-SCHEDULED gatherings, for no additional charge, when one family/friend group has booked the whole property (events must be scheduled in advance with Mountain Brook Lodge and Cottages, and the guests booked at the resort will be responsible for clean up)
MOUNTAIN BROOK LODGE AND COTTAGES IS DELIGHTED TO WELCOME FAMILY AND FRIEND GROUPS, & WILL PROVIDE A PORTRAIT OF THE GROUP GATHERING ON THE FARMHOUSE STEPS! ( A Mountain Brook tradition...).
ALTHOUGH OUR GUEST WILL ENJOY THE SECLUSION A SMOKY MOUNTAIN RESORT HAS TO OFFER, SOUND CARRIES ACROSS THE THE GAP, SO WE APPRECIATE YOUR CONSIDERATION IN USING "INSIDE" VOICES WHILE ON YOUR PORCHES & THE FARMHOUSE PORCH AND LAWN AFTER 9:00 PM, AND ONLY ACOUSTIC MUSIC (NO AMPLIFICATION) WILL BE ALLOWED FOR GROUP GATHERINGS AT THE FARMHOUSE - THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING! (Our neighbors are thoughtful of our guests, also...).
