Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family was very pleased to find that your cabin greatly exceeded the beautiful pictures and write-up we saw on-line. Our first visit was so awesome that we promised ourselves that we would come back next year. And that is exactly what we did! Our second stay was even better than the first because everyone knew what to expect. Now when we talk about next year our choice for our next vacation is unanimous- your cabin!!

Everyone loved the views from each side of the cabin. The kids enjoyed sitting upstairs so they could watch everyone down below from the large balcony. The women loved the large, modern country kitchen where they prepared our meals (but they still got us to go out to some of the great local restaurants you recommended!). The guys enjoyed keeping a large fire in the massive stone fireplace and watching sports on Direct TV.

Our time on the front porch was relaxing and rejuvenating. We enjoyed just taking in nature's sights, sounds and smells!

The only problem with writing a review like this is that other folks are going to discover our secret vacation spot! Oh well! As long as we can return when it is available, we will be glad to recommend it to others!!

Relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Relaxing weekend in the mountains. Everything we needed was in the cabin. Nice to have cable. About 30 min from downtown Asheville. Definitely recommend the 4-wheel drive to get there!

A lot of good and fun memories!

  • 4 of 5

Overall the place is great! There’s lots of room for kids to play and adults to converse. Dining table was huge and amazing. The fireplace was great in keeping us warm at night. The climb to the place was not bad except when it started to snow but we knew that might happen. The cabin was very close to the main road, few miles to the ski resort and down the road to the snow tubing.

The only downside is the kitchen, we have some trouble finding matching pots and lids and some tools to use.

Jeanine is very helpful, easy to contact and responds right away.

We had a great stay!!!

We had an amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the cabin. Our first was our quiet little wedding with only a few guests. This time was an anniversary celebration with our friends. The cabin is beautiful as always. Everyone had a great time and the owners are overly accommodating. We can’t wait to come back.

Beautiful house, lots of room

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 13 stay here for a few days, and we all absolutely loved it! The layout of the house is great for hosting large groups and slept well with room to spare. Location is great, with close proximity from ski lodge and a little over 30 mins from Asheville. Would recommend staying here!

Quiet Rustic Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here the week before Christmas and had a fantastic time. Brought my parents and three teens. Enjoyed tubing, hiking, zip line at Navitat and the Biltmore. We cooked most meals in the large kitchen but did eat out at the Biltmore. Amazing meal! The kids enjoyed the hot tub and downstairs apartment was their hide away. There was plenty of firewood for the beautiful fireplace. Owner was responsive and gave thorough instructions on everything. The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars was for cleanliness. Towels were fresh but we washed our sheets before we slept on them.

Warm and Cozy Mountain House

  • 4 of 5

Family and I had a fun weekend using this Home as our launching point for Christmas tree cutting and trips to Asheville. I would recommend that you try to make your arrival during daylight hours as the marker for house is gone and there are no lights on road. Highly recommend 4 wheel drive especially when it is raining.

The owner was easy to work with and kitchen was well stocked for making meals. My only negative comment would be the cleanliness of house. House keepers definitely have a good gig.

Overall, I would rent this home again.

Come enjoy the Spring and Summer in the cool Mountains !

Stay 6 nights - get the 7th FREE !

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, this breathtaking 3500 sq.ft. cabin is more like your Private Ski Lodge. Snuggle up in front of 1 of 2 fireplaces or grab a blanket and relax on 1 of the 2 wrap around porches. The peaceful sound of the waterfall is divine after a dip in the hot tub or after a day of skiing and tubing.

Tastefully decorated with primitive antiques, yet all the comforts of home like 2 jacuzzi bath tubs, dual shower heads, comfy mattresses, new appliances and laundry.

1st floor quarters are separate enough that the kids can have their own bedroom,living room, and flat screen tv. And you don't have the noise !

Love the Mountains and the City? We are just 20 minutes North of Asheville,NC and The Biltmore. It is daytripping distance to the Harrah's Casino in Cherokee. Very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Appalachian Trail.
