Gooder Grove is your affordable home away from home in the mountains, whether you're seeking a quiet respite from the "grind" or exploring the trails and rivers throughout the Nantahala National Forest & the Great Smoky Mountains. Private rooms, bunks and tenting available.
Gooder Grove is located close to Main Street, so you can conveniently and casually explore Franklin's breweries, restaurants, shops, outfitters, and more. If you're feeling more adventurous, we can guide you to the very best whitewater rafting, hiking, horseback riding, zip lining, mountain biking, and more excursions that make western North Carolina a premier tourism destination.
The Grove is one of the most popular new hostels for hikers along the 2,189.9-mile Appalachian Trail, one of America's top long trails. We've hosted thousands of AT hikers from all over the world and all walks of life. Let us help you rest up, rejuvenate, and return to your natural state, of simply being.
