You will not believe the sounds of the "Roaring Waters" when you arrive at this cabin! The sounds of Fightingtown Creek are ones that you will not forget, making this cabin a perfect destination for water lovers.Roaring Water Lodge is situated on a hill just above the creek and placed just so that you have views of both up stream and down stream. The cabin does feature a well thought out walk way to the creek bank, lit by vintage style street lamps and delivers you to a truly "park like" setting. The park area adjoins the creek bank with a wood burning fire pit and log seating that is perfect for roasting marshmallows or just enjoying a warm fire. The fire pit is surronded by gorgeous mountain laurel trees and large natural rock formations (a unique amenity!) that will inspire the best night time stories. This area provides easy access to the creek for fishing, but remember the creek is very swift and riverlike!The main level of the cabin features a full wrap around covered porch complete with a propane grill and picnic table for outdoor dinners and rocking chairs for relaxation afterwards. You will also find a very special amenity on this level: a private screened porch with the hot tub, comfortable seating and a gas log fireplace making it a true outdoor oasis! Inside you will find the upgraded kitchen with stone and wood slab counter tops, stainless appliances, and dining area. The living space next to the kitchen is complete with a floor to ceiling stone fireplace with gas logs, TV and comfy sofas. This level has two private bedrooms, one with a king size log bed and one with a queen size log bed. These two bedrooms share a full bath located just between.
*Please keep in mind the cabin has a walk way down to the water from the cabin. The cabin is appromately 200 feet from the waters edge. This is also shown in the cabin's photos.

We had a great time trout fishing, river tubing and hiking to the to the swimming bridge!! We really enjoyed the creek and playing pool!
We had stayed at Roaring Water Lodge in December 2021, and it was a very nice stay. Two things to keep in mind: 1. There are approximately 60 steps to reach the bottom outdoor firepit and river. 2. There was no super easy access to the river, too many slippery large rocks to climb on in order to get into river for us. We loved the wrap around porch. Great place to star gaze from! The hot tub next to the T.V. and fireplace was excellent. Cabin was clean and nice size for a family of eight.
This is exactly what we needed, very peaceful. The creek was perfect, loved hearing the running water from the deck. We spent mornings in the shops in Blue Ridge and neighboring towns, and afternoons in the cabin. We had a wonderful stay.
