The French Broad River courses right thru the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and you can stay in the midst of both of these natural wonders!

Welcome to the tranquility that comes from "elevation", calming and majestic views of over 70 miles, and the breathtaking awe of a true mountain log cabin.

Does this sound like the ultimate relaxing luxury destination experience for you?

French Broad Cabin is situated on a natural bluff, directly above the roaring French Broad River, and built amid the splendor of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Come soak in all that French Broad Cabin has to offer its guests, including tons of private acreage, hiking trails, fish pond, fire-pit, a rocking chair front porch and more. Bask in the simple luxury of a log cabin, relax and sip coffee as you take in the astounding views, along with being able to watch wildlife from your private front porch and outdoor areas.

Come create your own memorable mountain experience!

The cabin affords year round access, and is great for groups of any and all ages. The cabin is situated just outside of Marshall, NC, affording privacy for everyone to relax & enjoy the feel of the WNC mountains. French Broad Cabin is located on a private estate farm, surrounded by wooded mountains.

Get ready to be “wowed” by the never-ending views and natural surroundings from this contemporary mountain log cabin retreat. With soaring vistas, high ceilings, vaulted rooms, and cozy spaces, you will immediately feel at home at French Broad Cabin. (That is of course if you can tear yourself away from the front porch & soaking in the spectacle of the Blue Ridge Mountains, & actually venture inside!) The log cabin affords a cozy great room, fully equipped kitchen, dining room, and MORE, with plenty of space to unwind and gather with your group. But, if you need some “alone time”, there is plenty of space inside and out to find your own serenity. There are 100 acres you can explore, a small pond, horses grazing nearby on occasion, the fire-pit, and the ultimate front porch for ultimate outdoor relaxation.

French Broad Cabin has so much to offer guests; from possible hiking and walking trails, and much more. While at French Broad, everyone enjoys all that the cabin has to offer; from the wood burning stove, the fire-pit, and of course the spectacular front porch, where you can pull up a rocking chair and take in the "sound of silence", observe the night as it fills with stars, and watch the fire flies come out to play in your backyard.

Take a seat and enjoy the sound of nature and the serenity in your own private paradise at the top of the world.

You are also just a short drive from America’s favorite scenic byway, The Blue Ridge Parkway, motorcycle touring, biking, hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, zip lining, Segway tour…just about any outdoor activity! Or, take a ride to downtown Asheville to enjoy the first-rate restaurants, shopping, galleries, spas, and entertainment.
