About Shining Rock Life - Susan Kavanaugh
My husband and I purchased this property 4 years after we were married (after honeymooning in the area) and built this cabin in 2000. It was a vacation home for us until April of 2016 when our dream of living in the mountains full-time became a reality. We built a small home higher on the property where we live now with our two goldens. We hope to build another rental cabin soon.

What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is located on 60+ acres. We've been working on trails to walk/hike so you don't have to leave the property (we've hiked from here to Shining Rock and back), but there are beautiful hikes a short distance away. You can enjoy peace, quiet, privacy and a true mountain experience but you're only about 20 minutes from the quaint town of Waynesville and 30 minutes to Asheville. There is a gate at the entrance for security. The cabin water comes fresh from a natural spring.

Kevin and Susan were great, very easy going, only saw them at check in and check out. Cabin was perfect for us. Wonderful views, very secluded yet close to town. Enjoyed shopping, touring Biltmore Christmas lights, horseback riding and sightseeing.
You were great guests! Thank you for choosing our cabin and we hope you'll be back!
I would highly recommend this cabin. Owners are amazing, the cabin was clean, and decorated very cute, stocked with more items than any VRBO I have stated at in the past. Loved being surrounded by Mother Nature.
You were an amazing guest! Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet the rest of your group. Thank you for your kind review ... glad you enjoyed the cabin!
WONDERFUL, SECLUDED CABIN
This was one of the most beautiful cabins we have ever stayed at. The peace and quiet that I needed away from work. And just a stones throw away from wonderful mountain trails, waterfalls, and Ashville.
Thank you so much for choosing our cabin for your mountain visit ... we all (including the goldens) enjoyed meeting you! Don't work too hard!! And come back anytime you need another break.
We were looking for a quite place to relax and we found it. Beautiful views from the porch. We really enjoyed the sauna also. We had a good time visiting nearby towns. The location of the cabin makes it a good jumping off point for many activities in the area. Just make sure you drive your 4WD or AWD vehicle because the driveway is steep and not paved. The king bed upstairs is very comfortable. The kitchen is more than adequately stocked with cooking supplies. Our hosts were so kind and attentive. We really could not have asked for a better place to get away from the hustle and bustle.
We enjoyed meeting you both and it sounds like you enjoyed your anniversary stay. We're very happy to hear that. You mentioned you don't usually stay in the same place twice, but if you're back in our area, we hope you choose our cabin again.
Great host and beautiful log home
The owners of this home are very welcoming and accommodating. Home is nicely decorated and well equipped for everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay.
Good location close to Asheville and the parkway and other local attractions.
Would certainly stay here again or recommend to others.
Thank you ... Kevin and I hope you'll come back to stay at the cabin!
BEST HURRICATION EVER!!!
We found Susan and Kevin's place when we were looking for a place to evacuate from Hurrican Dorian with my 93 yr old mother and 2 labs. We found a gem!!! Not only were the accommodations outstanding, but Susan and Kev were THE BEST! They made us feel so welcome and gave us SO many great ideas of restaurants to eat at and things to do. The cabin is so warm and homey and has everything you could possibly need, including an awesome sauna and outdoor deck with beautiful views! You can tell that a lot of thought went into the furnishings and decor to give their guests the "rustic, mountain feel" that you want when you visit the area but all the comforts of home. We will definitely be back and won't wait for another hurricane to travel there!
We are so happy you chose our cabin and even happier that you all enjoyed your "hurrication!" The best news was you didn't return home to hurricane damage. We look forward to your next visit!!
