Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing! This has been our second time here, and we had (another) great time with our two dogs, Lady and Minnie. My sister, brother, and parents all loved relaxing in the hot tub and snoozing by the fireplace. We also enjoyed the art studios, the Asheville Brewing Company

and going up the mountains. This is the perfect cabin and we will surely be coming back!

This cabin was a very cozy and nice place for our small family to spend our holidays. It offered all of the means to make our stay easy. It is secluded but not too far of a drive into town. The view from the porch was beautiful and you can even enjoy the view from the hot tub. My favorite feature of the house was the large windows over looking the view. The only complaint that we have is the lack of bright lighting inside the cabin.

Fantastic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is adorable! It was easily accessible and not too far away from conveniences (gas station, drug store, etc.) yet still private with plenty of natural views. It was immaculately clean and the decor was so fun and cozy. Everything we needed was there. My husband especially enjoyed the wood stove and we would have enjoyed the hot tub but it was way too cold the weekend we were there to think of going outside in less than Antarctic attire. Maybe next time! We spent time in Black Mtn which was just a short drive away. Lots of cute shops and good eats - Blue Ridge Biscuit Company, Pepperoni's Pizza, and The Trailhead. We maybe had a little too much fun at Pisgah Brewery where there was a good variety of delicious beers and a free band on Friday night. Since it was too cold for outdoor fun, we headed into Asheville (also just a short drive away) and checked out the Antique Tobacco Barn which had all kinds of interesting things. (Note: the Antique Tobacco Barn is not climate controlled so keep that in mind if you're going there...but it's totally worth the hypothermia or heat stroke if you are into antiques and "junk"!) We also went to the River Arts District on Depot Street in Asheville which had numerous galleries with a variety of local artwork. The last day of our stay was a little warmer so we were able to get in some hiking on the trails in nearby Montreat which was beautiful! I highly recommend this cottage and location. I can't wait to come back!

Did not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first "big" vacation with our 19-month-old and it was wonderful. Upon arrival to the cabin, it was clean, welcoming and cozy. We knew from reading previous reviews and looking through photos that it was cute, but the little details are so fun. Our daughter was very comfortable and we enjoyed everything the cabin had to offer. We also brought along our Border Collie, who had plenty of room and enjoyed catching some frisbee in the yard. The cabin is situated in a really nice location, too. It was just a short drive to coffee, dog parks, hiking trails and only a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Asheville. This was a really great place to stay, we'll hopefully be back!

Whimsical cabin, full of character!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself, our daughter , and her boyfriend stayed here and could not have been more pleased. Very easy to find and yet secluded from everything. When we opened the door I think we all gasped in appreciation of the decor of the cabin. This cabin is so adorable, clean and plenty of room. The pictures do not do this place justice! It is that cute! We would love to plan another get away just to stay in this cabin. The hot tub was great too! On our last night we did see a small bear at dusk that briefly entered the yard then went back into the woods. There is no dishwasher so plan to wash dishes. I had paper ware and it all worked out. My husband fell in love with the local grocery store Ingles which is only minutes away. We also met several neighbors when my husband and I would take walks and everyone is so friendly. The owner Jennifer was very informative and quick to respond which is very appreciative. The cabin is also organized with tips, maps, and guides for the area.

We never want to leave!

My husband and I try to visit the area in spring and fall and always stay at this peaceful, beautiful cabin. It has everything you could possibly need and is located just a short drive to Asheville and Black Mountain. It is always spotlessly clean. We feel so grateful to be able to stay here and always look forward to coming back.

Fantastic location to dive into all that the area has to offer. Nearby attractions include the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, the Biltmore, shops, and restaurants. The River Arts District is a not to be missed introduction to the local art scene in Asheville. Another sure bet for art lovers is the Folk Art Center - home to the Southern Highland Craft Guild, conveniently located nearby on the Parkway. Lake Lure and Chimney Rock are an easy day trip from the cabin. Warren Wilson College is in Swannanoa , which offers miles of trails to explore and a farmers market in warmer weather. With Asheville 11 miles away and Black Mountain just 6 miles away, and a sweet little cabin like this to hang your hat, you can't go wrong!
