Tucked deep in a hollow of the Southern Appalachians is Timberfell Lodge, a paradise for men seeking either solitude or camaraderie with their gay brothers and where inhibitions are shed as easily as clothing…
What To Do First?
After breakfast and conversations lingering over fresh-brewed coffee, guests head for the pool, hike the gentle or more demanding trails circling the lodge property, or do nothing at all. This is when camaraderie is strongest and new friendships are forged. If the thought of getting dirt on your dock siders or having your hair mussed by tree branches drives you crazy, there are a number of alternatives to a wilderness walk.
Visit Timberfell’s Memorial Garden, built with donations from Timberfell’s guests. This beautiful garden is a wonderful place for reflection and meditation. Just down the hill from the main house is the Pool Complex. Swim in the large, 20′ by 40′ heated pool or simply watch while sunbathing. Relax in the steam room or redwood sauna. Towels are provided for guests’ convenience while at the pool. Chilled beer, snacks and other refreshments are sold poolside by the attendant. The Pool Complex has complete bathroom facilities. Those who understand and relish all the intricacies of fishing may catch “the big one” in the afternoon in the stocked pond.
