Mount Mitchell cabin description

Newer smoke-free cabin sits under huge oak tree and across from trout stream in Pisgah National Forest. Located at the base of Mt. Mitchell and walking distance to the Mt. Mitchell Crest trailhead. Hike the trails of the forest and be back home in your cabin the same day without having to drive!

Fish or go tubing in the South Toe River or play a round of golf at the Mt. Mitchell Country Club. Located ten minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, 30 minutes to historic downtown Burnsville, one hour to Asheville or Boone.

Our family has been coming to Western North Carolina for years searching for the perfect family vacation spot. We believe we have found it in Serendipity.

It is the perfect combination, isolated, but not too far from civilization. You can arrive, with a stop at the supermarket on the way in, and have enough to do without having to use your car. Serendipity also makes the perfect home base for day trips to all North Carolina and Tennessee has to offer. Free Wifi and pet friendly. Call or e-mail for more information.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  Why the Owner Chose Mount Mitchell:
                  We wanted to break Out of our normal vacation routine! We were tired of overpaying for cramped hotel rooms and paying exorbitant entertainment costs. We couldn't even bring our dog with us without staying at the worst hotels. We chose North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains because it provides a variety of free entertainment that gets our family's adrenaline pumping.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  When we stay at our cabin, we have the great outdoors right on your doorstep. We pack the bicycles, throw the kayak or tubes on top of the car, and get ready for a vacation of outdoor adventure that the kids (and dog) love! We can drive to Asheville, Water rafting, horseback riding, Gem Mining, Apple and Blueberry picking, etc. When we visit our cabin home, we are coming to beautiful Yancey County, the land of Mount Mitchell and the Pisgah National Forest. Our cabin is located in an alpine valley. The elevation of roughly 3,000 feet makes for a cooler summer, but the flatness of the terrain makes it easier to reach in the winter. You do not need an all-terrain vehicle to reach us. Hiker's love the fact they can do some very difficult trails and then relax in comfort when they are done.
