We have a beautiful waterfall that is a short and easy walk from the cabin. The trail system also hooks up with the Appalachian trail so the possibilities are endless. Fishing is available in the creek in front of the cabin or on the larger creeks in our area. The creeks are stocked yearly with trout. Stargazers will enjoy the uninterrupted beauty of the night sky. This cabin has a spectacular view of the moon rise. There are two labyrinths on the property for you to walk if you choose. We love sharing our 100 acres of paradise with you. Our land adjoins the national forest so the possibilities are really endless.

We are located 13 miles from Hot Springs where there are quaint little shops, restaurants, an outfitters store and rafting company. We are about a 1 hour drive from Asheville, NC, home of the beautiful Biltmore mansion. There are many activities in our area including, river rafting, kayaking, zipling, hiking, horse back riding and gem mining. There is also local bluegrass music, wonderful drives that lead you on a quilt trail or a barn trail.

Your cabin comes equipped with everything you need for you stay. We provide a landline phone and Wifi. We are sticklers about cleanliness and care for our cabins. It has fresh linens, cooking utensils, a kitchen, an outdoor grill, an outdoor fire pit with free firewood, satellite tv, dvd, cd, music system, electric fire place.

The hot tub will be warm, the lights on and the key available on the table. We live about 1/2 mile from the property, so if you need anything, you are welcome to give us a call. We believe in allowing our guests their privacy, so you will not be disturbed unless you need something.

This cozy cabin is located in the Western NC mountains surrounded by Pisgah National Forest, just off the Appalachian trail near Lemon Gap and Max Patch. This makes it a great place to offer trail support if you happen to have a friend or family member who is hiking the trail. The cabin is also within a day excursion to the Smoky Mountain National Park.

There is easy access to the French Broad River which offers a wide variety of river rafting, canoeing, kayaking and fishing. The NC Arboretum, the Folk Life Center, the Blue Ridge Parkway are attractions that many of our guests enjoy. Cherokee and Maggie Valley are also within reasonable driving distance and offer great day excursions.

Max Patch is a short drive from our cabin and offers a spectacular 360 degree view from the top. It is an easy to moderate hike from the parking lot to the top. Many of our guests visit there to watch the sun go down, or to take a day hike. The Appalachian Trail goes right across the ridge. If you are lucky enough to visit us around the time of the full moon, you can get a spectacular show from the top of Max Patch. If you go up on the day just before the moon is full, the sun will set just as the moon is rising. Standing on the top of the mountain during this time is a unique, spectacular experience.

Wild flower enthusiasts will love exploring the woods surrounding the cabins. There are many beautiful and rare species of flowers blooming from early spring to late autumn. We have been fortunate enough to spot showy orchids, trillium, wild geranium, tiger lily, jack in the pulpit, lady slipper, lily of the valley just to name a few. Early spring also brings dogwood blossoms and wild azaleas in abundance. The Rhododendron are particularly spectacular in the summer months as they flourish along our creeks and cover the hillsides with pinks and whites. It seems that almost every day from April to late October, something new is blooming in these beautiful mountains.

Bird lovers will be thrilled to find that we are a major migration route for many songbirds and butterflies. We have a huge population of hummingbirds. A very thrilling site is the Indigo buntings who visit our area in the spring. They flash an incredible incandescent blue when they fly by. We have birds such as the nuthatch, towhee, cardinal, oriole, wrens, hawks and many others. We also have many yellow finches and purple finches.

So, on your next vacation or romantic getaway, come to the mountains of Madison County, NC and discover what makes the Appalachian Mountains such a great place to relax and rejuvenate your spirit. Allow yourself time to soak in the Jacuzzi on the front porch, or rock in the rockers. Take a walk or wet a fishing line. Discover the peace of a mountain retreat. It's good for the Soul.

The cabin was nice. The area was beautiful. We enjoyed the hot tub. But, there were no towns near.

  • 3 of 5

The property was beautiful and peaceful. It was close to the other cabins and we could see the neighbors in their hot tub. Lol The cabin had everything we needed. Make sure to get groceries before you get there; it took about 2 hours for a grocery run. The waterfall is worth the short hike.

What a great little get away!

  • 5 of 5

We have taken a short trip to Hot Springs each year for the last 5 years for our anniversary. We have stayed in a different place each time. This was our first time staying just out of town in a cabin. Wow, what a great little cabin. So clean and neat. The hot tub was so great! The short hike to the waterfall is amazing! If you go there definitely don't miss that. The owners are so friendly and accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place to get away from it all. The cabin is fully stocked! Coffee pot,

Coffee, filters...already there! Hot tub was clean, hot, and private! Hiking trails right outside the cabin. Max Patch is just a short drive, where you can see a full panoramic view of all the Mountains..a must see!! This cabin experience was our best cabin experience here in Hot Springs, and even Gatlinburg! If you haven’t stayed at Sun dance it needs to be in your bucket list. We are already planing our next visit!

Beautiful, peaceful

We loved our getaway to Sundance cabin. Very private and the solitude was very much welcomed. The waterfall hike was fun and The Mermaid Lounge was adorable!! The cabin was super clean and accommodating!! Wifi did not work well, but I enjoyed being phone free for a few days. Can't wait to go back!

Map

We are close to the Appalachian Trail and Max Patch which is a beautiful mountain bald offering a 360 degree view of the mountains. It is truly spectacular. We are 13 miles from the quaint little town of Hot Springs which offers art galleries, quaint little shops and a variety of restaurants and a spa with mineral springs water. We think you will enjoy the remote location of your cabin and it is best to arrive with your groceries and some gas.
