Cabin Fever
Reviewed July 20, 2012

We stayed at Cabin Fever several years ago to attend the Blue Ridge BBQ festival and decided to try them again this year. Our adult children and two grandchildren joined us and we rented two cabins. The cabin we stayed in was nestled on a stream amongst the beautiful blooming flowers. We loved sitting at the picnic table outside, building a fire, and cooking breakfast. The smell of bacon cooking was amazing. Our expectations for the cabin experience were definitely met. I do have a few comments that may help on future visits.
1. Make sure that you check the supplies in the kitchen. While I realize this is a cabin in the woods, the $100.00 plus I paid should include a cleaner kitchen. Quite a few of the dishes we were going to use were caked with food from previous visitors. Minimal supplies are provided and when we ran out of garbage bags and dish soap (we borrowed soap from the other cabin we rented) we had to track down the managers (there are no consistant office hours) to get more, more than once. Luckily we found a Family Dollar in town to get additional supplies to assist us with our cabin experience.
2. Consider providing clean linens already on the bed! My daughter is in a wheelchair and this is difficult for her to put linens on a bed. I know my husband and I traveled a long distance to get there and the last thing we wanted to do was make beds. (There are two options for linens: bring your own or use theirs; but put them on the bed yourself).
3. DO NOT leave food inside or outside. We did hear critters in the cabin a "scurrying" at night..
4. It was too warm to use the wood burning stove one night we were there, but the next night was chilly and we would've loved to use it (in fact, I went into town and bought sweatpants). . . but the managers told us they had not gotten around to cutting "stove" wood because it HAD been too warm. Would've loved to have that option provided!
5. The zip line was a blast for my children and grandchildren. However, we left a very expensive camera there by accident and when we went back to look for it, it was gone.
WATCH YOUR STUFF!
This truly was a great family time with just a few minor kinks! Enjoy!

Room Tip: Ma and Pa's cabin is newer. High Top is on a stream and farther up the mountain. May be diffic...

Had a great experience. If you are looking for quiet time and back to the basics this is the perfect spot. We stayed at Buzzard Roost Cabin on top of a hill. There are seven cabin to choose from. I was happy to be in such a remote location. No TV, no noise except for our children. Great family time... Porches, porch swing, rocking chairs, fire ring outside (can we say smores), wood burning stove in the cabin (to warm for that), full kitchen (basic appliances-no dishwasher but who needs it for a little get away), small park for the children. WiFi is available reception was good at our place. Due to my husbands business we had to have a small connection with the outside world, but we keep it limited so we could enjoy this vacation with only minor interruptions. It was so nice to not have to pry the children away from a TV. Plan on a return trip. Glad I just came across this great little place and decided to give it a try.

These cabins are located in Saluda, NC and there are several to choose from on the property. We happened upon these cabins while planning our annual apple picking trip and are so thankful we found this little gem! We stayed in the High Top cabin with four adults and one child and were very comfortable. The cabin was so warm and inviting. We used the wood burning stove during our entire trip (wood provided) and it kept us nice and warm. The kitchen was well stocked and we were able to cook several meals in the cabin. There was a fire pit outside which we used to roast smores. We loved feeling like we were so secluded, but being only minutes from Saluda and about 20 minutes from Hendersonville. We are already planning our next trip and have planned to make this our choice for many more!

We decided to stay close to home to have a girls weekend away, and Cabin Fever fit the bill. Ma and Pa's cabin slept 6 (one on the couch) comfortably. The wrap around covered porch was wonderful - with rocking chairs, sofa and game table. It was too warm to use the wood burning stove, but wood was supplied, and there was also wood available for the outdoor fire pit. Picnic table outside, basic grill, fairly well-stocked kitchen, a bubbling stream off the deck, sunlight filtering through the leaves, and we didn't have a care in the world. Great outdoor pavillion for congregating a large group for bonfire or barbecue. We loved the horshoes, swings and zipline, and managed not to get lost on our short hike through hardwoods and rhododenrons. The cabin was clean, with basic supplies like a kitchen towel, toilet paper, bathmat and rubbish and recycling bags. We'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: There are a number of different cabins, different sizes, so choose one that fits your needs.

This cabin complex sets off Rt 176 in Saluda NC. Each cabin has good privacy except I would not choose the cabin that sits in the middle of the kids playground ;-). Four of us adults and two children stayed in the Ma & Pa cabin. I believe it is their largest cabin with a downstairs bedroom and upstairs loft. The a/c was a welcome addition. The kitchen was okay; nice refrigerator but the stove seemed to be incorrectly wired ( low vs high reversed). The beds were okay but remember to bring your own linens or pay $20 for theirs. We opted for their linens and they were fine.

Wifi is available but don't count on getting a signal in your cabin. The router is in the attic of the office which has a steel roof....so you can guess how far the signal travels. We were 200ft from the office and had no useable signal. Cleanliness was marginal with some resident cob webs and lint hanging around. Also, do NOT leave any food out at night inside the unit or you may have some uninvited four legged furry guests dining with you. But hey, it's a cabin in the woods....

We stayed in the Ma & Pa cabin on Memorial Day weekend. This was our 4th visit to Cabin Fever. We brought a young father and his two small kids, another close friend and our 7yr old granddaughter on this trip. Everyone had a blast! The kids wore my husband and friend out on the zipline, but they got even by scaring them half to death with glow in the dark eyes and going snipe hunting ( the woods were full of them and they love Doritos). We stayed the first time in the Birds Nest, the second at Buzzards Roost and the third time during a snow storm in High Top. Even being snowed in and having to carry our firewood up the side of the mountain didn't ruin the stay (we were offered a cabin near the office but declined). We just love the place. It is secluded and away from the noise and traffic but close to so much. Just a short drive to Hendersonville and Flatrock. Saluda is a very cute little town to spend the morning, though we didn't make it this trip. We did finally go to Carl Sandburgs house which was a lot of fun and to Pearson's Falls, a short hike and well worth it. Can't wait to stay here again.

Room Tip: No bad cabins. Kids may want to be near play are.

Everything we read was true. The perfect get away to leave the hustle and bustle behind.
No phones, no TV, no traffic noise.....just you and nature! Kayaking, hiking, white water rafting, etc....it was all great fun! And the cabins were secluded - but near a charming little town with local shops and restaurant that give me the feel of Mayberry. I have no doubt that one would not have to be in Saluda for very long before coming to know everyone by their first name. I can not wait to go back!
