Carolina River Ranch Glamping

Situated along the Little Tennessee River and with gorgeous mountain views, Carolina River Ranch gives you the best of what Western North Carolina has to offer.

This beautiful historic property was once home to the famous Tallulah Falls Rail Road – the road you drive in on was once the actual railroad! This area – Franklin, Highlands, and surrounding mountains – is a destination unto itself, and we are perfectly situated near the best outdoor adventures, waterfalls, restaurants, and culture it has to offer.

We have 12 glamping tents available for individual nightly rental, as well as many options for renting the entire property for weddings and retreats.
