About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Four Winds Retreat is located just three miles from Interstate 26, but you'll feel you've arrived in a lovely secluded cove on the banks of the beautiful Green River. As soon as you arrive, you'll hear the rush of the river and when you climb the stairs to the wonderful deck you'll appreciate not only the river, but also the beautiful mountain views.

Four Winds cabin is a newly renovated cabin that was built from poplar logs harvested off the property. Great care has been taken to preserve the rustic charm of the original cabin while offering all the modern amenities that are so welcome in our day to day life. The cabin offers a master bedroom with a queen bed and private full bath. A second bedroom offers two double beds and a full bath just down the hallway. Our third bedroom is in our newly completed basement and has two queen beds and a full bath. Also, in the basement , we have a lovely living area with a table full of games for family fun, areas to enjoy reading and comfortable seating to appreciate the beautiful mountain and river views. The upstairs den is cozy and comfortable with a lovely stone fireplace and a satellite TV when you feel the need to connect with the outside world. The kitchen is fully stocked for all of your cooking needs, or just head over to charming Saluda and enjoy the lovely dining experiences they offer.

Great getaway, just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Even in winter, this home is so great... The river was up from the rains, so it was really roaring - we stayed out of it this time, but can't wait to get back this summer - the sound of that water over the rocks sure made a nice background for sleeping, reading, general chilling-out from modern life stresses...

The fireplace is perfectly designed, and really throws out the heat, with NO smoke. House has all-wood walls everywhere, so warm and welcoming !

It IS a "hike" up the stairs or the mossy bank to the house; may be tough for elders - and the bicycling-famous, steep 20(+) hair-pin-turn drive up the mountain into Brevard is an adventure in itself, but its the only way in to Green Cove ! So, bring the groceries with you, and enjoy making meals together in the well-appointed kitchen - only wish it had a gas stove, a nice big commercial range, to feed and cook with all the people we'd love to invite back (hint, hint)...

So much room, comfy beds, plenty of parking, on a truly great stretch of river (whether you like running rapids or just level-calm floating, both are to be had within just a couple miles) - we're going back and bringing more family - along with kayaks, tubes, fly-fishing gear, hiking boots, a ton of groceries and wine... yeah !

Nice mountain house

  • 4 of 5

We had a good time with 7 ladies from our church at this vacation home. The house is extremely well stocked with linens, extra blankets, kitchen appliances and dishes. There was plenty of space for all of us. The front stairs are very steep and there are lots of them :) The older ladies in our group found them a bit difficult. The house is only 2 miles from I-26, and it is an extremely curvy mountain road for most of those 2 miles. Prepare to go slow :) Our suggestion to the owner is to install WiFi, or a landline phone at least. Only 1 out of our group of 7 had any phone signal while at the house, so contacting family members while we were there was difficult. Also, if there is an emergency situation, phones are needed. Overall we had a good time and the house is very nice! The river across the street is beautiful and sounds very relaxing :)

Beautiful! Fun!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect setting for a cackling group of women aged 45ish to 70ish. We laughed, kayaked, hiked and laughed some more. We highly recommend folks try out the Four Winds Retreat- retreat is exactly what it was!

Rustic retreat...

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay this past weekend. My daughter was getting married in Saluda so I rented this cabin for our out-of-town guests. Everyone raved about the comfort and cleanliness of this cabin. In particular, the large front deck overlooking the river became a popular spot to hang out to enjoy meals, socialize, and enjoy the view. The layout was ideal for a larger group (6 adults), beds were comfortable, and the bathrooms, AC, and mechanicals all worked to perfection. While we had no issues at all during our stay, I am confident given the responsiveness of the owner that any problems would have been promptly addressed.

During our stay we enjoyed many local attractions - the downtown shops, Green River BBQ, the Gorge Zip Line tour, the Biltmore house in nearby Asheville, and finally the lovely Episcopal church in downtown Saluda where the wedding took place. We are all looking forward to our next visit to Saluda and will definately stay in this rustic retreat again.

Four Winds cabin offers many options for the adventurer in each of us. There is cycling on routes like the Loop de Saluda on Green River Cove Road or the Watershed. There is kayaking with Green River Adventurers, hiking, tubing and some of the best fly fishing in North Carolina is just out the front door. Saluda, Tryon, Hendersonville or Asheville will satisfy any shopping urge. You'll find interesting gifts, antiques, and other treasures you can take home with you. Stay active or just rest and relax and enjoy the wonderful river and the beautiful mountain views.
