“At the top of the mountain!”
Reviewed October 29, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I stayed at "Cabin in the Clouds" during peak leaf season, and the view from the deck changed every day. The trees became more colorful and the low-lying clouds hugging the valley floor in the mornings were stunning. Having a glass of wine out on the deck in the late afternoon? Can't be beat.

The cabin (or rather, good-sized home) is at the top of a road, so there's great privacy. I did have a 4WD and had no problems going up or down. It's only a 15 minute drive into the town of Black Mountain and a 30 minute drive to downtown Asheville, so it's a very convenient location. A large Ingles grocery and pharmacy are 10 minutes away. My Verizon cell service worked just fine.

The log cabin is decorated very tastefully in a mountain style, with balcony railings made of bent wood, comfy seating, and antiques on the front porch. The home offers a well-stocked kitchen, soft linens, and cozy blankets. We didn't use the fire ring surrounded by chairs in the front yard, but it would have been perfect for an evening fire and roasting marshmallows. There are sweet little birdhouses all around the home.

The only downside? Two very minor issues: 1) the large flatscreen TV in the living room had a challenging set of remotes, and I eventually had to call DirectTV twice to reprogram the whole set up; and 2) to reset the modem for wireless, I had to call the realty agency and go into the basement. But I reported both issues and I am sure the owner will address.

If you want a beautiful property in a safe but remote location, you will love "Cabin in the Clouds". I recommend it highly!
