Saluda cabin description

This is a traditional log cabin with modern amenities. It is tucked away among the mountains at an elevation of 2370 feet with breezes whispering among the hardwoods. The situation provides a feeling of great seclusion, yet you are only a quarter mile from a lake (visible in winter) and are only three miles from the quaint village of Saluda, North Carolina, with quaint shops, restaurants, and old-time general stores. It is as if you stepped more than a century back in time.

You are a mere ten miles from the Flat Rock Playhouse (live theater) and the Carl Sandberg home. The largest private home in America, the fabulous Biltmore House, is a mere half hour away on your side of Asheville. All the other possible mountain activities are nearby except downhill skiing, and even it is not very distant. Or, if you merely want to rest and rusticate, simply curl up with a good book on the screened front porch or the open and leafy back deck of the cabin and forget the outside world. There is an air conditioner, but it is seldom needed.

                        My friends, dog and I had a wonderful weekend getaway at the cabin. It was a perfect little escape. Great hiking and waterfalls close by, Saluda is adorable and the cabin was delightful. We ate breakfast on the deck and enjoyed the breeze on the front porch. This was a great place to stay and we would definitely come back!

                        If you like an out of the way place, this is it. Two nice porches with lots of quiet. We would come back again.

                        We enjoyed our week on Saluda mountain. The leaves were gorgeous! We are grateful they accommodated us last minute! We enjoyed coffee in the morning on the screened porch - very lovely and relaxing! (FYI - obey the directions they give you and do not rely on your GPS.)

                        My family and I spent Labor Day weekend here and it was perfect. Walked down the hill and caught lots of bass and bream every morning before going to the Apple Festival in Hendersonville. The cabin was cozy, comfortable and provided all we needed for 'home base'. Thanks Allan and Mimi!

                        My husband, labrador retriever, and I stayed in the cabin over the 4th of July weekend. It is actually a quaint, restored log cabin in a secluded location. We found it perfect for the three of us. The cabin is located on a small lake just outside of the town of Saluda. There is a feeling of being in a remote place but you are actually very close to the town of Saluda. We enjoyed walking our dog around the private lake. In the evening, we enjoyed sitting on the screened porch listening to the night sounds and watching the lightning bugs. After spending the day hiking in the Pisgah Forest, we would come back to Saluda, get take out from the Green River Barbecue and go back to the cabin to enjoy our feast there. The cabin has everything that you need in order to be comfortable. We wanted to thank the owner for his hospitality and would recommend the cabin to others.

                        Owner response: This couple and their dog were very considerate and appreciative guests, and it was a pleasure to accommodate them.

                        Thank you so much for accomodating us at the last minute. The cabin was very comfortable and in a great location. Very beautiful views, secluded but close enough to the attractions in the area. I really enjoyed my stay and would love to come back again.
