Amazing Spring Break Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Raven’s Inn cabin. First, the place is a gorgeous log home which had obviously just been totally updated. The inside is spacious, nicely decorated and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need to cook full meals and even includes things like zip lock bags, paper towels and Tupperware! There’s a wood burning fireplace, two large porches and a yard with fire pit. Mimi, the hostess is super helpful and even leaves you fresh baked goodies! Less than one mile to Black Mountain. About 15 minutes to Asheville! We can’t wait to go back when it’s a bit warmer!

Beautiful Private Location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in a beautiful location. It is away from the daily activity of city life, yet it is only a short drive to numerous attractions and beautiful hiking trails. The cabin was spacious, clean and fully stocked with everything we needed and more. The owner, Mimi, was always available to answer questions and assist us with everything we needed.

The only negative we would give is with the downstairs master bedroom. The mattress was sinking in on one side and the area smelled like mildew. However, there was a tremendous amount of rain for two weeks prior to our arrival. The cabin was very clean so it is likely that the mildew smell was from all the rain.

We were extremely pleased with the cabin and its owner.

Fun get away

We rent cabins in the mountains a lot and this was the most well-stocked one we have ever been to. Mimi thought of everything we might need. The cabin was easily accessible and close to all the places we had planned to visit. Thanks Mimi!

Warm and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Ravens Inn for Thanksgiving was a great choice. A great fireplace for the cold weather, a fire pit in the backyard was really nice for family and a game of corn hole. The kitchen was well stocked to help cook Thanksgiving for 20 family members. Close to Asheville and grocery stores. Mimi had everything covered for a fun and relaxing stay.
