The cabin was adorable and just what we were looking for.. close enough to get to Asheville when we wanted but out away from too many people. It is pretty tiny but has everything you need for a nice weekend away.. not sure 4 people would be comfy but perfect for 2.
Great place to stay, we loved it and can’t wait to go back! It was every bit of a 20-25 minute drive from Asheville, but the cabin and it’s scenery is definitely worth it.
We came up here for the New Year week, we were surprised by a unusual winter storm and snow. We were so lucky to be in this cozy home. The house is stocked with dvds and warm fireplace. Nice and cozy. The owner John and caretaker Beth were awesome. Beth even came over to put Salt on the porch. I would highly recommend this place for a getaway and a nice place to recharge
The cabin was absolutely wonderful. We loved the creek right in the backyard. Just a short drive into Asheville—highly recommend Biltmore Estate, it was lovely. Ate at PF Chang’s, Biscuit Head, and Brasilia steakhouse. We will definitely be back!
This cabin was the perfect place to slow down and relax. I loved the loft and living room space with the wood stove. One of my favorite features was the easy access to trails. It was fun to wander around in the snow!
My wife and I were extremely impressed with the cabin. John and Beth really go the extra mile to provide everything you might need for a cozy stay. There are amenities in the kitchen, a system for music, a blu-ray player for movies, a great selection of movies, a fireplace with stacks of firewood...I could easily go on. We arrived at night after a long drive and it was amazing how warm and welcoming the cabin felt when we got there, even though we had never been there before.
It's not a cabin in the isolated-from-others sense. There are neighbors on either side of the cabin. That was fine, however. There is a great mountain view directly in front of the cabin from the deck and the creek runs right behind the cabin- easily viewed through the back/kitchen window. There is a foot bridge built right over the creek leading to the mountain trail directly behind the cabin. There is a small waterfall not far from the bridge. Bring a camera. Bring a book as well- it's a great area for just taking it all in and relaxing.
It's a bit of a drive to get to a gas station or a restaurant, but not overwhelming- about 10-15 minutes. The area is gorgeous. Asheville is about 20 minutes away and it's definitely worth a day trip to visit.
I really couldn't find anything to complain about in regards to the cabin. John and Beth really do a fantastic job of making it welcoming and nearly self-sustaining for visitors. They left notes/contact numbers and were readily accessible had we required anything.
There are only two issues I would mention- not as complaints, but something to be aware of if you are considering the cabin. One is the bathroom- specifically, the space allowed for the toilet. If you are a large or obese person, you will possibly feel cramped. The bathroom/ shower itself is fine. Just not a lot of room for anyone using the toilet. The other issue is the loft bedroom. While the loft is quite lovely and so-very-well set up, the staircase leading up to the loft is a tight fit and you have to bend down to walk to the bed. There is a ground floor room, so if you're going alone or as a couple, it's not an issue at all. If you go as two couples, though, make sure the younger couple get the loft.
Anyway, to summarize- great cabin, great value, great experience, highly recommended.
