Nestled in the foothills of the Cherokee National Forest, this is the perfect vacation get-away for rest and relaxation or to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities.
Our 'lodge' is located on one of the most popular rainbow trout fishing streams in East Tennessee. If you're looking for a quiet, out of the way place to rest and relax or if you're more into enjoying the outdoors, you'll want to come stay with us. Activities include fishing on Citico Creek or one of the nearby lakes, hiking, bike riding, kayaking (seasonal), and in-season hunting. We're located within 30-45 minutes of the Cherohala Skyway, Tellico Mountains, Sequoyah Birthplace Museum, and the Fort Loudon State Historic area just to name a few. Come prepared to cook - we're 20 minutes away from stores or restaurants!

Locally or Family Owned Business Notes
In 1953, original owners, Lee & Edith Rigsby tore down an old barn and built the first cabin in the 'Broken Arrow Resort'. The cabin was called 'the lodge' because it could sleep numerous hunters or a large family.
Over the years the cabins were used by vacationers and as a camp for the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. 'The lodge' now belongs to the Sowder family and has been a vacation get-a-way for family and friends. It has been newly renovated making it a very charming and affordable vacation get away.
