Waynesville cabin description

Relaxing Vacation in the Mountains
Relaxing Vacation in the Mountains
We drove up from Florida to meet friends from Raleigh to spend a fun long weekend in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina. The cabin is gorgeous - so private and secluded and the views from the deck are amazing. We loved the kitchen - had everything we needed - and enjoyed cooking out our dinners on the gas grill. Our days were spent hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Oconaluftee Visitor's Center is lovely and had all the information we needed to plan our day hikes. We enjoyed the trails and waterfalls at Deep Creek and don't miss Mingo Falls, one of the tallest and most spectacular in the southern Appalachians. We also enjoyed visiting the Mingus Mill, an elaborate and working water-powered grist mill built in 1886 - you can even purchase fresh ground cornmeal. For a more challenging hike through the forest and up a mountain try the Rainbow Falls Trail. For the beer lover stop in downtown Sylva on the way back to Waynesville to see Dieter at the Heinzelmannchen Brewery to sample and purchase his home brewed German beer. He even has homemade root beer for the kids. After a full day of exercise we slept like logs - the beds at the cabin were sooo comfortable. Our only regret is the time went by too quickly - wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you, Nathan & Jennifer, for sharing your delightful cabin with us - it was a memorable vacation.

Great place for a fall retreat

We really enjoyed our stay at this cabin. It was absolutely charming, and the views were stunning. It was far enough away from town to feel like we were really in the mountains, but close enough to go in and go shopping and get groceries. And the owners were great to work with.

We returned last night from spending the week at this cabin. It was in a beautiful spot. So far from others and very relaxing. The road trip to the cabin was quite an adventure but the kids loved the bouncing around in the car. The deck is a wonderful place to spend your early mornings and late evenings with a fire in the fire pit and roasting of marshmallows. We used the loft with a blow up mattress for our boys and they thought that was cool. It was nice and cool up the mountain as the temps down below were very very warm and humid. Everything we needed in the cabin from the appliances to the hair dryer in the bathroom. Nathan and Jennifer were very helpful in planning and answering questions about the best places to purchase items. Was a very fun family vacation and we got to see a couple of fox as well as have a visitor get into our trash can every night. It was a nice adventure for us.

We spent a wonderful week at Cold Mountain Cabin in July 2010. We've rented numerous cabins in the North Carolina and Tennessee mountains over the years, but never one this nice. It was immaculate and so well appointed. The layout makes great use of the space, and it was very comfortable. The pictures do not do it justice. The kitchen is amazing: both beautiful and well-equipped. We generally eat lunch out and cook dinner in, and it was nice to be in a kitchen where I could accomplish whatever I wanted to cook very easily. Also, I appreciated that Nathan and Jennifer make a full spice rack and some basic supplies available for guests. We happened to visit during a heat wave, and the two window AC units cooled the entire cabin very efficiently. Although the cabin is at first appears to be quite a distance from Waynesville, it's not really that far, and Nathan's directions for the country roads are spot-on. We really enjoyed Waynesville, visiting the Main Street shops and restaurants. We happened to be at the cabin during the week that work was being done on the road up the mountain. Fortunately, Nathan warned us about the road work, and I'm sure when it is finished, it will be an easier approach. The 3-point turn into the driveway listed in the description isn't a big deal, but you do need to be prepared to go UP the steep mountain road. But believe me, it's worth it!

We recently stayed at the Cold Mountain cabin (June 6 - 10, 2009) and had a wonderful time. Nathan is very friendly and helpful and refunded our deposit almost immediately upon our departure. The area and views are fantastic and the location is perfect for those wanting to check out Looking Glass Falls, the Devil's Courthouse, hike the many trails, or take a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Cabin itself is very clean and maintained and really, how can you beat waking up to the sound of birds and a nearby waterfall?! We will be staying at the Cold Mountain cabin on our next visit to the Pisgah Forest area. It was perfect for a family vacation.

We stayed at this wonderful, relaxing cabin during the Thanksgiving week 2008. The cabin is absolutely immaculate both inside & out. The views are breathtaking and the owners, Nathan and Jennifer, super people. Nathan & Jennifer made our stay most enjoyable and were so, so helpful and accommodating when we ran into a little snag our first day there. They went out of their way to help us. They also surprised us with a complimentary turkey for our Thanksgiving dinner which we appreciated very much. We cooked most of our meals in the "gourmet" kitchen and took every opportunity to sit out on the deck and enjoy the views during the day and the million stars at night. Renting this cabin is a must!!! We hope to be back every year.

My wife and I took a chance and decided to make a last minute weekend trip to see the foliage. A call to the cabin owner was returned within the hour, and fortunately a last minute cancellation had opened up the calendar for our stay. The owner, Nathan, could not have been more accommodating in making the arrangements to reserve it for us, and 25 hours later, my wife and I were on the open deck of the cabin enjoying the wonderful mountain air. We were only able to stay for two evenings, but the trip was wonderful. Most economy hotels were charging a good bit more per evening during this time of the year and we had a gorgeous cabin to ourselves for considerably less. No lying in bed hoping the others in the hotel room next door turn down their TV when at this cabin! The easy access, the privacy and the cleanliness of the cabin all added to our enjoyment. The view is wonderful, and unlike other private rentals we have rented, this view would be wonderful any time of the year, even with full leaves in bloom. Many other cabin rentals may show a view during winter when all the leaves have fallen, but only offer limited view during the other seasons. The cabin had all the amenities we needed, was meticulously clean and has a huge wide open deck wrapped around three sides of the home. We visited the Apple Harvest festival in Waynesville 10 minutes away and had a wonderful time. Breakfast in a local restaurant that morning… 4-5 hours visiting the crafts, food booths and stores on town… a few hours enjoying the foliage... all followed by a fantastic steak at Bogart’s Restaurant in town. We then returned to the warmth, comfort and privacy of the cabin. Life does not get much better. Highly recommended!

Cold Mountain Cabin was everything we wanted and more. It was secluded yet close to surrounding towns and the setting of the cabin was just so relaxing and inviting. The overall setup of the cabin had a mix of rustic charm with modern appliances and needs. Nathan and Jennifer were an absolute pleasure dealing with and were extremely helpful. We will definitely be returning in the future!

We just returned to Florida after a relaxing week at Cold Mountain Cabin. We enjoyed our stay immensely!! The cabin is very clean & "homey". It was so nice to come back to after a busy day of hiking & sightseeing. We enjoyed several "home-cooked" meals out on the deck. What an awesome view! Evenings were spent outside until dark, then relaxing indoors playing Yahtzee or watching a movie. It truly was "quality time" with my husband & "tween" age daughter. We will remember this as a special trip & plan to return again. Thanks to the owner for a wonderful time!!

We can't say enough about this rental. The area was just beautiful. We live near the ocean, so the mts. were a great change- sitting by the fire every night and every morning was a treat! The Owners were very helpful, and thankfully answered many questions for us about what to see and do. The "cabin" (this isn't the same kind of place you stayed at CAMP!) was so completely furnished, and VERY clean. The pictures on the website almost underserve how fantastic this rental is. We went hiking, had a massage, and spent the rest of our time just enjoying the huge deck and fire. The grill was a great bonus! We've stayed in a lot of private vacation rentals, and I can honestly say I've never felt I got more for my money than at this one. We have a 9mo old who also seemed to really enjoy herself- so dont be shy to bring a baby! The place is totally top-notch, high-end, and very welcoming and warm all at the same time. We only wish the ocean and the mts were closer so we could go back again very soon!

About the owner: We have enjoyed family vacations to Cold Mountain since 1987 when my Grandmother built the cabin. In 2006, we completed an extensive renovation and decided to offer the property to vacationers. It brings us great joy to see our guests enjoy the cabin and create lifelong memories with their friends and families as well.
Why the Owner Chose Waynesville:
We have been visiting the Waynesville area for many years, and is a special place indeed. We love the balance between the rustic charm of Waynesville, the eclectic urban sophistication in Asheville, and the breathtaking beauty of the mountains, and the limitless outdoor activities. The cabin is ideally situated to reach all of our favorite places easily, and we love the setting on Cold Mountain that offers us complete privacy and serenity.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We could write a book about all there is to enjoy in the area. At the top of the list is a day in Asheville visiting the Biltmore house or Arboretum and checking out the eclectic shops and restaurants downtown. The town of Waynesville offers dozens of bookstores, coffee shops, art galleries, and fantastic dining opportunities. When it's time for the great outdoors, we head up to the Blue Ridge Parkway to our favorite hiking spots: Devil's Courthouse, Black Balsam Knob, or Graveyard Fields waterfall. During the warmer months, we enjoy horseback riding at Cataloochee Ranch, and of course skiing in the winter. Perhaps our favorite pastime is having a campfire on the deck after dinner and gazing up at the stars.
