Romantic mountain getaway for couples, creek, pet friendly, and near Asheville
Brand new on the rental market, this beautiful, newly renovated 1000 square foot mountain cabin is nestled right beside Hominy Creek. The cabin is only a short drive to favorite destinations. It is located only 17 miles west of downtown Asheville, 15 miles from the Biltmore Estate, and less than five miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway at Mt Pisgah, . Sit in the swing on the large front porch and listen to the 25 foot wide babbling creek running just 30 feet from the cabin. Grill a nice meal, sit by the fire, and soak in the brand new hot tub---all while watching and listening to the amazing sounds of the creek.
Enjoy the large outdoor fire pit (with wood provided by the owner). Enjoy coffee and breakfast on the deck overlooking the creek. Relax and read in the porch swing or porch rocking chairs on the 50 foot covered porch beside the creek.
Walking into the cabin gives you a real sense of peace. The log queen bed with luxury bedding, and the comfortable den both face the large gas log fireplace. The den boasts a comfortable chaise lounge for reading, a full size couch and a tv. There is also a tv in the bedroom area both equipped with cable. The fully equipped large kitchen and dining area allow our guests to prepare and enjoy gourmet meals with ease.
Preparing for the day is a joy in the newly renovated bathroom with shower, and dressing table with lighted makeup mirror. All linens are provided, as well as robes for the hot tub.
Whether starting your day with a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and hiking, visiting the world famous Biltmore Estate, embarking on a local brewery tour, or simply relaxing at the cabin---you will not be disappointed with the location or the accommodations. There are brochures of favorite activities and information guides waiting for you at the cabin. The cabin driveway and parking area are flat with easy access during all seasons, so it is not a problem to return after dark.
This cabin truly has it all!

About Kelly Munro
I am so proud to be able to share this mountain oasis with my guests. I live just outside of Charlotte, NC and have a wonderful partner and three beautiful children. After growing up in Miami Florida and visiting these mountains for so many years, I decided to make North Carolina my home. My wonderful parents, who purchased this property, gave it to me and my two siblings. I will be utilizing the income from the cabin to help pay for my children's college. This cabin is" the gift that keeps on giving"!
Kelly Munro purchased this Cabin in 1972
Why Kelly Munro chose Candler
Why is this area of the mountains so special? I started coming to this area each summer with my family when I was two years old. The beauty and majesty of these mountains is breathtaking. Every summer we would visit from Miami. We loved this area so much that my parents bought two houses here. Hominy Valley and Mt Pisgah continue to be my "happy place". Now that I have three children and a career, I am not able to visit as often. I have decided to share this amazing cabin and creek with others, so that they may find it to be their "happy place" too.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin and property are so unique. The sounds of the creek in the early morning and evening, the chirping of the birds and beauty of the surrounding mountains give me a since of peace. Having the creek run the entire length of the property provides a wonderful scenic boundary. My parents house stands unoccupied on the back of the property providing additional privacy. It is so difficult to find property that is totally private today. You can only see one occupied house from the cabin. It is located about 300 yards down and across the creek. Our lifelong friends and neighbors down the road still live in Miami and visit the mountains only during the summer months.

Wonderful, Clean, and Close to Attractions
We enjoyed our stay for the weekend. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. The deck and sitting area by the stream is where our time was most enjoyed. The hammock and birds singing all around were nice. The bed was conformable and sheets were great quality. All the windows and doors added an open feeling to the outside. There are a few things I would like to mention that don't keep me from giving the 5 stars as these are things the cabin owner can't control. It is located near some other homes, it has some privacy but if you are looking for a secluded cabin this may not be for you. On Friday evening a neighbor played music with lots of bass all evening into the later hours long. It was not really heard from inside but it was heard from outside. Saturday morning chainsaws running was our wake up call. Again taking nothing away from the beautiful cabin these things the owners can't control. Cell phone service and internet were great, the TV didn't have the best channels available mostly news, shopping channels or real old TV shows. We had looked over the previous reviews so we had ice and bottled water, that would be a recommendation I would pass on. I think the water supply maybe has a heavier iron or mineral content. I just wanted to mention these things, we enjoyed ourselves but there was everyday life going on in the homes close by. We were close to shopping, stores, downtown and the Biltmore house, and the conveniences of that came with being located in a area that was more populated.
Magical Creekside Hideaway
Overall everything was great! There were so many little touches that made this home a step above others...the provided dog bowls, the hot tub, the proximity to the creek, the many options for the lighting inside and outside the home, the welcoming music as we checked in, the fireplace, the super comfortable bed, outdoor sitting and fun spaces, furniture, linens and so much more! The location was nestled privately in a beautiful valley about 20 mins southeast of Asheville. There was a very nice Ingles grocery store about 15 minutes away.
A couple things that are not a deal breaker, but that other guests may wish to know ahead of time...the ice/water maker on the freezer door didn’t work so we tried to use the tap water, but it had a very metallic taste. We’d recommend grabbing water jugs and a bag of ice if you need it. Another is that there’s not a washer/dryer and the shower pressure was low. But as mentioned, everything else was very enjoyable!
Beautiful cabin between downtown Asheville and outdoor activities! Gives you the best of both worlds just a short drive away.
Perfect For Us
A great place for our elopement. We loved the creek and fireplace!
Comfortable Creekside cabin
Cabin clean and well stocked. Nice amenities, fireplace, hot tub , new gas grill and fire pit.
Porch area was was very nice and is next to the creek.
Several neighbors around the property, not an issue when we were there in March.
No real Mountain View.
Very close to Blue Ridge Parkway access, 30 min to downtown Asheville(13.5) miles and close to Biltmore.
Wonderful Time In The Mountains
We arrived after dark, and the owner had the cabin lights on, and soft music playing. We loved the cabin as soon as we opened the door. Most of our time was spent at the Biltmore Estate and touring the breweries. The cabin was only a short drive to our destinations. We had everything we needed at the cabin and more. The cell service, and WiFi worked great. There is another cabin that you can see across the creek, but there was lots of privacy. The hot tub even has shades around it. The white lights and the robes were a nice touch. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.
Thank you for your kind review. maybe on your next trip you can check out the Blue Ridge Parkway at Mt Pisgah which is only 5 miles from the cabin. The views all along the Parkway are spectacular and there are great hiking trails also.
