Groups & Events

At Wrong Way River Lodge & Cabins, we believe in the transformational power of the outdoors. We want to help every group staying with us — whether for work or play — tap into the "River-Life". We’re all about connection, relaxation, simplicity and adventure. Whether you’re hosting a business retreat, a family reunion, or just a group looking for a good time, we got you. Good times are kind of our thing.


"...We were lucky to have warm fall weather, which allowed us to enjoy many of our meals outside around the campfire and picnic tables. The cabins were a hit with the entire team. Everyone loved discussing what records were in their cabin and a highlight was the hammocks for the balconies. Swinging in a hammock and watching the sunset after a long day was a great way to relax. The entire Wrong Way layout made it feel like we were all together at a modern and well-manicured campsite. With Wrong Way as our home base, we were able to take hikes in the local park. Our team walked to the River Arts District to poke around the galleries. We had fun on a brewery tour that allowed us to see more of Asheville... Thank you, Wrong Way for ensuring our retreat was a success. We all want to come back to enjoy Asheville again!..." - Shannon R., Yelp Review


Property Map

Wrong Way has 16 stand-alone A-frame cabins to give each member of your group privacy and autonomy, as well as three unique event spaces for the group to gather and connect (campfires included). By partnering with local caterers and experience providers, we can be your guide for a fully customized itinerary of meals and activities.


"...Every guest felt like a VIP! Can't express enough gratitude to the owners and team. If you're thinking about booking a stay, corporate retreat, or just a fun event, I highly recommend Wrong Way for all of it!" - Jackie S., Professional Event Planner


“The Eddy” Indoor Event Space

Named after the slower current downstream of a river rock, this 850 sqft event space can accommodate seated dinners or meetings of up to 36 people or a standing party of up to 50 people. There are two dedicated bathrooms and a catering kitchen for outside caterers. The space opens up to a dedicated patio for seamless indoor/outdoor events. As we like to say here at Wrong Way, “get caught in the Eddy and slow down to river-time."


"...We loved our time and the memories made at Wrong Way and highly, highly recommended them for groups large and small :)" - Katie R., Google Review


“The Boardroom” Conference Room

Named after our love of paddle boarding on the river, the Boardroom is an 8-person conference room that is available to rent for small group meetings, flex space, or just as a private office. The space has a 60 inch monitor and full A/V support for presentations, but the private balcony overlooking the French Broad River is where the real magic happens. Whether it's business casual or casual business, you can get your team “into the flow” in the Boardroom.


"...The cabins are lovely and welcoming, the meeting/event space was great, and Shelton and the staff couldn't have been more hospitable. It was perfect being on the greenway and right near the river while still being within easy reach of all the good stuff Asheville has to offer. All in all a great experience!" - Rachel M., Google Review


“The Meadow” Outdoor Event Space

Tucked back towards the rear of the property high above the A-frame cabins, the wooded Meadow overlooks the French Broad River and Biltmore Estate property. Long range mountain views make the space ideal for outdoor dinners, fireside chats, or team building activities. Dedicated fire pits and lawn furniture make this space the perfect spot to unwind.


"...The food was hands down the best food I have had at any retreat or conference I have participated in. If you are debating - book now! I will definitely be back." - Frances C., Google Review
