What is Candlelight Forest?
A SIMPLER TIMES RESORT
A New Idea, An Old Remedy
…a place that hearkens back to a simpler time, when cane pole fishing, skipping stones, rocking on the porch of the old country store and exploring canopied forests were magic for the soul.

The Idea House
We are honored to be home to America’s first idea house by This Old House. This beautiful mountain craftsman is nestled on the side of our Early Moon Ridge. The house sleeps eight and is thoughtfully designed and decorated to enhance your total experience. The large wrap around porch is quite roomy and offers several gathering and dining options
We also have two overnight treehouses just up a short wooded path from This Old House. These houses have two stories each and 1 & 1/2 baths and our own signature Canopy Kitchenettes(TM) on the back porch deck.
