Thanksgiving House

Deep in the Waterfall Canyon

The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Thanksgiving House was the original structure at Elohee and is currently available for use by small private groups. With six bedrooms and four bathrooms, it sleeps up to fourteen. It offers two community rooms with fireplaces, a kitchen and dining room, as well as a meditation/yoga room.  The outdoor patio has its own fireplace and overlooks a 100 foot waterfall and small pool.

The Thanksgiving House is nestled in a Rich Cove Forest niche which supports a wide range of trees and plants.  Red maple, oak, basswood, and poplar are only a few of the types of trees growing here. Spring wildflowers and medicinal herbs flourish here. Mosses and rotting logs make the damp forest floor suitable for a wide variety of salamanders and one of the most diverse ecosystems found outside the tropics.

The house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.

– Gaston Bachelard


The Thanksgiving House is situated next to a 100-ft. waterfall, and about a 10-minute walk from Bald Mountain. It has 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 2 indoor fireplaces, 1 outdoor fireplace, and a meeting space that comfortably fits 10-13 people.  Primitive camping is available along a creek nestled in a beech grove with a 5-minute walk to the house.
