We stayed in the "Mountain Time" cabin. I believe that these are owned by individuals, not the resort and rented out- we used Carolina Mornings to book ours.
WOW! My hours of research payed off! I looked at several cabins and we finally decided to stay in "Mountain Time". We made the right decision...The owners have set this up PERFECTLY!
The beds were comfortable, all of them! The couches and chairs are comfortable! The cabin was clean-I'm a clean freak and usually have to dust vacation homes, not this one! Our cabin was well stocked with all of the kitchen supplies I needed to entertain our family and guests-platters, serving dishes etc.
The views were incredible! Everything worked (tv's, hot tub, dvd player, radio, fireplaces etc)
The main floor consists of a half bath, kitchen, master w/ensuite,dining room, living room w/fireplace and beautiful deck with 3 exits to the deck.This level of the deck had a gas grill, picnic table and 2 rockers and THE VIEW! The top level houses the 2 twin bedrooms with the shared bath. The lower level of Mountain Time is the game room, with a Queen bedroom, full bath, pool table, foozball table, fireplace and laundry room, deck w/ hottub and swing. The cabin is decorated with inspirational quotes and sweet decor.
It takes about 15 minutes to get from the cabin to the bottom of the mountain, and from there another 15 min or so to nearest town...Mars Hill, where Ingles grocery store is (exit 11). We were about 45 minutes from Asheville, but after driving 13 hrs to get there (from Florida), that didn't seem too bad.
Depending on what time of year you go, booking through Carolina Mornings, includes some freebies- Biltmore pass, ski pass,zip line pass...a bonus.
Although this ski lodge was closed for the season (and burned to the ground 2 days after we departed), the Asheville visitors center informed us of "Cataloochee" ski resort in Maggie Valley-an hour or so away.
We recommend Jackson Underground in Asheville to get some wonderful food while you're shopping downtown. Homemade, yummy goodness!!
Can't wait to return to this particular cabin someday with more of our family in tow!!
Great value - the same price as a swanky hotel (which I'm partial to)
