Morganton cabin description

Come and Enjoy our quaint cabin home!!

Stoney River Cabin is a private vacation retreat located in a small residential community near Lake James. Our community has about 10 homes with 2 year round families. Our wonderful neighbors are part of the reason guests return again and again.

Lake James is a 6,510 acre lake which has more than 150 miles of shoreline and located at the base of the Linville Gorge Wilderness Area.

The cabin is convenient to the Pisgah Loop Scenic Byway, Table Rock and Hawksbill mountains, Linville Falls, the Linville Gorge, and the city of Asheville.

There is excellent access to Lake James, just 2 miles by road from a public/boat access area and 1/2 mile by river via your own kayak.

The Linville River is just behind the house. Available Year round.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We are small investors of real estate, who love the outdoors.

              Why the Owner Chose Morganton:
              This is a beautiful property very close to wonderful outdoor adventures.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              The cabin is made mostly of wood and stone - natural materials, constructed in the 1930s. There is something very earthy about being here - very healing. It will revitalize you from the inside out. Swim or float down the Linville River on a hot summer day, just behind the house. Relax on the screened in porch. Hike the Linville Gorge - the 'Grand Canyon' of the southeast - a quick drive from the cabin.
