Earthshine Mountain Lodge offers rock-climbing classes for kids

The all-inclusive Earthshine Mountain Lodge introduces kids and parents to an eclectic range of experiences. On Pioneer Mornings, you can apprentice in a blacksmith shop, press apple cider and make hand-dipped candles, while on Cherokee Mornings, you can discover the traditional ways of the Cherokee tribe, with activities that include learning how to make beads and grind corn. Because the resort believes that family vacations are about quality time together, you will find activities suitable for a wide range of ages — rock wall climbing, s'mores around the campfire and starlit hikes are just a few of the bonding experiences on offer. Rates include activities, hearty home-cooked meals (caveat: BYOB) and accommodations. Storybook-worthy rooms are housed in the hand-built cedar lodge, and the Sunrise Cottage offers a selection of larger family suites.
