Hendersonville cabin description
Our 400-acre property features a log cabin, a loft, and a bunkhouse. These three structures, surrounded by forest and rhododendron groves, are clustered together on the hill with a beautiful view of spring fed trout pond.
The log cabin was originally constructed in 1977. It has a full kitchen, 1 bedroom/bath, and living room. There is a full bed in the bedroom and a full futon in the living area. It has recently been renovated with a new bathroom, along with an addition of mudroom/pantry. We also added 4 'sun tunnels' to capture natural light to accentuate the open and comfortable layout. There is also a woodstove and working fireplace. The log cabin's covered front porch overlooks the pond below and offers a close-in view of the surrounding mountains to the south. All hardwood floors and tiled bathroom.
The Loft was constructed 4 years ago. It has board-and-batten exterior with simple pine siding walls and hardwood floors inside. There is a half kitchen with refrigerator, coffee maker and sink. There are two bedrooms, each with 2 full beds. There is a full futon in the living area, along with 2 chairs that convert to single futons. The new balcony porch on the loft offers a place to relax and enjoy the view of the pond below.
The kids will feel like they are at summer camp with our rustic bunkhouse, which offers a simple and peaceful experience for up to a dozen kids (and a few adults who may want the adventure of sleeping up in the loft inside the bunkhouse!)
The property is ideal for cook-outs with its fire pit and picnic tables centrally located outside the cabin and over the pond.
There are three waterfalls on the property. The largest falls some 50 feet, with accessible wading areas below.
There are creeks and springs all over the properties for exploring and wading. Miles and miles of hiking trails lead from the pastures all the way to the top of the mountain.
The pond has 2 docks (one stationary, one floating) which is great for swimming. It has recently been stocked with over 100 rainbow trout.
Onsite horseback trail riding and horse boarding available, inquire with Owner for details

Our family stayed for 4 nights in August at this beautiful location and could not have been more pleased with our choice. What a hidden gem!!! It was EVERYTHING we were looking for! Lots of privacy, plenty or room to hike and roam around. We fished in the pond, played in the waterfalls and made campfires in the evening! It reminded us all of our summer camp experience when we were all younger as it gave you that kind of feel. My husband and I slept in the cabin as there is only one bedroom and our kids, age 21, 20 and 17 stayed in the LOFT. This worked out perfectly as it gave everyone their own space! There was actually plenty of room for more people in the LOFT if needed. We did not even use the the bunkhouse that could sleep many more! The cabin, loft and bunkhouse are all located within walking distance of each other. When we arrived, we were greeted by Junior, the fantastic Caretaker, who spent several hours showing us around the grounds and even brought us down the road so we could milk his cow and bottle feed the calf! This was so special for us and we are still talking about it!! Junior also stopped by a few times to make sure we had everything we needed!! On the way home in the car, we all discussed how we wish we could have stayed longer and how perfect this rustic type setting was for our family! We loved that it had no TV ( hope it never does) as we really spent great quality time just being outdoors and being with each other!! We are already talking about when we can return! I can't say enough about what a great piece of property this is! If you love the outdoors and want to get away from modern technology and spent time with your family... This is it!! I would give the property and the caretaker a 6 star if that was an option!!!

Outstanding Property Made for Perfect Trip
Outstanding Property Made for Perfect Trip
This property should be a no brainer for anyone traveling to this area. We arrived expecting a simple cabin located close to the camp we were taking our child to. We were met by two beautiful cabins and a bunk house, 400 acres of property to wander, a stocked pond, a Polaris to cruise the property and hospitality that would put the Four Seasons to shame. The directions were flawless and arrival and access to the facilities was without any hiccups. As we were settling in, a neighbor arrived to deliver fresh milk and give us an overview of the property. We settled in and spent a beautiful evening on the front porch relaxing with a great mountain view. The next morning, the owner arrived to give us more details on the property and facilites. He was kind enough to take the time to ride us around the property to give us pointers on where to explore and find the best views and waterfalls. The property has several waterfalls that make the short hikes more than worth the effort. We spent most of our days just exploring the property, which the kids enjoyed as much as the parents did. I don't think we heard one request for an iPad or TV while we were there. We travel a lot and have rarely had an expereince that made you feel like you chose perfectly on accomodations, but this was one of those rare events. We have nothing but praise for this property and the owners, and look forward to returning next year.
