The Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge and Resort is nestled in the beautiful smoky mountain region of Western North Carolina. It boasts 39-acres alongside the edge of the magnificent Stecoah Creek, where the scenery for motorcycle riding has been called some of the best in the world. The resort and lodge is within just minutes of the famous Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap, the scenic Cherohala Skyway, Moonshiner 28, Blue Ridge Parkway, Cherokee, Fontana Dam, and the Nantahala River Gorge.

No matter what bike you’re cruising on, the Iron horse is where riders of all kinds come to stay and play. The Iron Horse was established in 2003 by riders John and Charlene Powell. They decided they wanted a place created by riders for riders, and that all motorcyclists needed a relaxing resort destination to call their very own. Their goal for the resort was to “bridge the free spirit of the old west with the free spirit of the modern motorcyclists”.

If you’re looking for a place to meet and mingle with fellow riders, or just need a quiet, relaxing spot to spend the weekend in, the Iron Horse is the ultimate destination for you. A stay at the Iron Horse includes several accommodations in addition to lodging, such as home cooked meals, an impressive fire pit, a massage therapy room, covered parking for your bike, and so much more.
