Hot Springs cabin description

We have two riverfront log cabins for rent -- The Rock & The Rose. You can make easy online reservations on our new website by going to www.riverlodgelogcabins.com. Please feel free to do that NOW, for loads of full-size photos and in-depth information about all the ways you can enjoy a vacation in the riverside mountain town of Hot Springs, NC.

Nestled in a picturesque mountain valley in Western North Carolina, our hand built log cabins are located directly on the French Broad River, surrounded by the National Forest and the mountains that gave the Blue Ridge its name.

Privately situated, our two large one-bedroom log cabins have excellent views, with lots of wide open space around them. Facing the river, with meadows and mountains on all sides, the shady front porches are a favorite spot come rain or shine. The huge grassy lawn with its garden pond slopes gently down to the river’s edge, where we have a nice deck and bench for sitting and a path for strolling.

If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway you won’t find a nicer spot to settle in for a while. If an active outdoor vacation is more your style, River Lodge Log Cabins is a great place to come home to after a hard day of hiking, biking or rafting.

Our riverfront log cabins offer the perfect vacation getaway for couples of all ages, small families, and pet owners. Each cabin has a vaulted ceiling in the main room, a private queen bedroom with antique furnishings, a sleeper sofa and a bath with a shower. The large sunny kitchen includes a side-by-side refrigerator, an electric cook top, a convection oven/toaster, a microwave, and a coffee maker, and has a comfortable dining area. The covered front porch has a slatted wooden glider swing, a roomy hot tub and a gas grill. Other amenities include full linen service, a satellite TV, A/C in the living room, lots of ceiling fans — inside and out — and a gas fireplace. Each cabin accommodates up to four persons.

Our Hot Springs, NC cabin rentals are conveniently located just a short drive northwest from Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. We have safe, easy access year-round for all types of vehicles. Many guests — pets as well as people — will appreciate the large level parking areas and entry ramps. Our universal design features include wheelchair access in both the kitchen and bath.

WE'RE PET-FRIENDLY!
We welcome responsible pet owners and their well-behaved companions. After all, what's a vacation without the family dog? We charge a flat $25 pet fee for each visit.

GREENBUILT!
These are authentic sawn log cabins we built ourselves with local wood from our own sawmill. The logs used for the main structure are hemlock. We used tongue and groove paneling on the walls and ceilings, and the floors are a fabulous mixture of local hardwoods. The metal roof makes music out of rainstorms! You’ll enjoy unique features such as handmade wood countertops and trim you just don’t get in “factory-built” cabins, plus the satisfaction of knowing that local labor and love were part of creating our cabins for your enjoyment, here by the riverside on our grandparents’ old family farm.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: Mary and Ken Pangle were born and raised in Hot Springs, NC and are active members of their local church. As owners of Pangle’s Construction, LLC, Mary and Ken are involved in road and bridge construction, site development and property management, as well as the River Lodge Log Cabin riverfront rentals. The Pangles operate a sawmill across from their home on Meadow Fork Rd., where they produce custom lumber, including the materials used in building their two riverfront log cabins — The Rock and The Rose. While Ken’s out on the job, Mary juggles the joys of motherhood and caring for their home with the various office duties of the construction and cabin rental businesses — answering the phones, doing the bookkeeping, reservations, and managing the website. In addition, Mary handles the cabin housekeeping, so she still enjoys spending time on the family farm. Discover the beauty of Hot Springs — take a relaxing vacation at the River Lodge Log Cabins. As lifetime residents, Mary and Ken know firsthand what a great place Madison County is to work and play, and they look forward to sharing it with you.

                          Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs:
                          We built these cabins on this piece of property that my grandparents owned. This is a way of being able to keep this property in the family and for the family to enjoy and remember the good old times. I spent a lot of time here and this place is so dear to my heart.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Stroll across the lawn to our riverside deck, looking back to enjoy the sight of the mountain rising behind your log cabin, its white rocks glowing in the sun (or the moonlight!). Sit by the river with the light sparkling on the water as the wind rustles the leaves, watch the cows graze and drink along the opposite bank, and wave to the rafters as they come by. As the sun fades over the river, everyone can enjoy a good meal (fresh trout, perhaps?) cooked on the gas grill and a well-deserved soak in the hot tub. Try to stay awake long enough to watch the stars come out — the Milky Way can put on a big show up here! Enjoy a scenic drive in any direction — we are surrounded by the National Forest and its natural unspoiled beauty. Don’t forget your camera — you might miss a once-in-a-lifetime shot! Keep a lookout for the wildlife — deer, turkeys, rabbits, raccoons, foxes, mink, groundhogs, otters, and yes, even black bears. Bald eagles, kestrels, hawks, great blue herons, ospreys, falcons, purple martins, cedar waxwings, ravens, swallows, indigo buntings, goldfinches and an array of waterfowl can be spotted while sitting right on the front porch of your log cabin. The large sloping lawn is a great place to enjoy the wide-open spaces — whether playing badminton, Frisbee, croquet, throwing balls for the dog, or just taking in the view to the sound of falling water beside the pond. In the evening you can sit by the fire ring, gaze at the stars or catch lightning bugs, dependent on age and inclination. Walking out the door of your log cabin you can enjoy rafting, tubing and trout fishing, an easy stroll or bike tour down River Road, hiking or backpacking on the Appalachian Trail. Cyclists will enjoy our two nearby mountain bike courses, or a quick run downriver to the Paint Rock Corridor (and the Tennessee state line) and back. River Road is coaster-bike friendly! So many choices!
