NOC to open high-end bungalow accommodations

NOC to open high-end bungalow accommodations

The Nantahala Outdoor Center unveiled its newest lodging, The Hemlocks by NOC. 

Available for bookings this June, these eight posh bungalow-style cabins feature king rooms, private deck and kitchenettes. Nestled on a ridgeline, the bungalows are designed to blend in with their natural surroundings. 

In celebration of The Hemlocks’ grand opening, NOC will donate $2,000 to the Hemlock Restoration Initiative. This contribution supports the critical work of preserving hemlock trees, which play a key role in river ecosystem health by filtering and cooling water, stabilizing banks, and supporting aquatic life.
