Burnsville cabin description

Our cabin home can be your home away from home!

Please visit our website to hear the sounds of the Creek, and please e-mail us for your price quote: THE VRBO QUOTE SYSTEM DOES NOT QUOTE PROPERLY. ALSO, WE WELCOME PETS!

Cool rushing water, fresh mountain air. The Log Cabin on Neil's Creek is situated on private land inside the Pisgah National Forest at the foot of Mount Mitchell in the high mountains. Neil's Creek rushes at a stone's throw past our 'settin' porch toward the headwaters of the South Toe River. Open the windows and hear the creek! Mt. Mitchell Golf Course is a mile away, as is Roaring Fork Falls. Just nine miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The cabin is in a high mountain valley at 3,000 ft elevation. The terrain nearby is quite level and an easy and beautiful walk, or you can hike a trail straight up to the top of Mt Mitchell.

Let us share with you the serenity of a place where time is measured in tree rings and wildflower seasons, where your most pressing appointment is to see a waterfall, and dream among mountains.

About an hour and 15 minutes drive from Asheville, the South Toe River Valley is an exquisite, fun, and friendly place to visit. The area is a photographer's, sport or craft person's delight. Sights include Penland Art Center, Linville Falls, many local waterfalls, Blowing Rock, Boone, Little Switzerland, Spruce Pine, and Grandfather Mountain.

A log cabin vacation is not like staying in a hotel. There's no maid service. Sheets and towels are ready for you when you check in - but you will have to make your own bed! On the other hand, what is precious is the peaceful return to nature - the babbling of the creek, the freshness of the air and of the forest. You can sleep with the sounds of nature coming in your open window - except maybe in winter! And this is the beauty of a log cabin vacation - you have the full experience of nature, with the comfort of cooking in a modern, well-equipped kitchen, your own bathroom, and a real bed at night. Not to mention the coziness of a fire, and the comfort of both heating and air conditioning as needed.

Our cabin home (and your vacation getaway) is about 1100 square feet. There is one large bathroom with washer and dryer, a dining area, and a game area. The cabin is located in a hemlock grove. While sitting on the deck, you are looking out over a rushing stream, while ridge-top views of the mountains (especially in winter) complete your experience in getting away from it all. Any time of the year, there's a whole wide world of nature to explore, or just to sit down and experience.

Join our regular returning guests in experiencing the relaxing qualities of nature, waiting for you any time of year. Here, time seems to stand still as you forget about deadlines more pressing than hiking or fishing.

Our rates INCLUDE all cleaning fees, unless you make a really big mess, or damage anything. Local and state taxes apply. We do not charge a damage deposit, and only charge if there is a problem.

LOCALLY OWNED AND OPERATED, we pay attention to our cabin. When you call, you reach us, the owners, and we care about solving any problem you may have.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Lee(R) and Maggie(L) moved to North Carolina from Florida in 2005.

                      Why the Owner Chose Burnsville:
                      Maggie fell in love with this cabin before we purchased our first North Carolina home in Fairview. The uniqueness of the property, being in the national forest, with the nearness of the creek, was completely irresistible. Western North Carolina has some of the richest natural areas, from the mountains, to the forests, to the streams. Fortunately, large areas have been preserved for the future as national forests. Our cabin is within this National Forest. This means that you are surrounded by that majestic forest - a pocket of habitation within the beauty of nature. Western North Carolina enjoys one of the highest levels of biodiversity in North America. Being the South with altitude, we appreciate the opportunity to see so much different wildlife without having to do much more than sit out on the porch! We actually came to Burnsville for the first time in February, in a snowstorm. The natural beauty of the mountains, the snow, and the sky touched our hearts. The surrounding towns of Spruce Pine, Little Switzerland and Marion have restaurants, shops and other attractions for when we want to just go exploring. Nature surrounds you at every turn. Just listening to the sound of the South Toe River that Neils Creek feeds is relaxing, and it's fascinating to see the changes throughout the year. We can't even decide which season we like best, because they all have their attractions! The South Toe Township of Yancey County is noted for its arts and crafts, not to mention its natural areas.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      It's wonderful to just walk out the door and hike in the forest. We especially enjoy the nearby waterfalls. We also live in a beautiful area, but the flatness of the land around Neil's Creek makes hiking a total pleasure. We like the restaurant at Route 80 just before you turn onto South Tow River Road: J & J's Grill, the old Albert's Restaurant, for you South Toe old-timers. We think Burnsville is an absolutely charming small town. If you are or are bringing people with limited mobility, the Forest Service has created a special area for wheelchair access to the creek that is just a few houses down from our property. Lots of places advertise creek access, but we're not kidding! Neil's Creek is a 365/24/7 creek that literally is only a few yards from the cabin. Leave your windows open at night, and you hear the creek. Sit on the back porch, and you can watch and hear the water. In 2011, we completed a new rail around the deck of the cabin facing the creek. Made of local hemlock from the forest, this deck is an incredible work of local art, as well as a safety enhancement to your enjoyment of the deck. This enhancement includes steps down to creekside. In Spring, there is the enjoyment of the land and its creatures waking up, as wildflowers burst on the scene. In summer, it's the calm peacefulness of a far green country. In autumn, it's the incomparable show of the leaves in full color. If you are renting from us in winter, please do watch the weather forecasts, especially for snow. The last mile of road to the cabin is a US Forest road, which is not plowed. But the access road is very flat, and should provide no problem unless there is a lot of snow. The Blue Ridge Parkway is closed in winter, but you can always get there through Burnsville or Marion. Winter brings a peace and serenity that you don't find in the summer - but it's great that this experience includes a warm cabin and a fireplace
