Our cabin is located on pristine property, secluded but not isolated, on the side of one of the Balsam Mountains. A 'Bold Rushing Creek' flows just below our cabin. Fresh mountain air, crystal clear water, sun rays streaking through the tree tops.

Comfortably furnished with antiques, art work and family treasures. A place to ponder the universe and one's place in it. Come stay with us and rejuvenate your soul.

Butterflies, humming birds and wild flowers abound. Listen to the water cascading over the rocks and boulders below while sitting on one of our decks. A peaceful, serene tranquility will overcome you.

A wood burning stone fireplace and authentic hand made rustic hickory furniture will enhance your mountain vacation experience. A Lazy Boy chair, couch and rockers provide maximum comfort for your peaceful escape.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Edward,

We had another great time when we stayed last June in your cabin/home. The place is perfect for our boys with the creek on the property. It is also very convenient to have the town nearby but yet be far enough away to feel like you are secluded. The house is well kept and we will be back to enjoy the mountains and outdoor activities. Thanks and take care.

Relaxing stay!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin. The cabin was clean and we loved the porch with rocking chairs. There was a wonderful view of the loud rushing creek. The temperature was perfect and stayed in the 60s during our mid July stay. The only bedrooms were downstairs which could be a problem if you have trouble going up and down stairs.

Our stay was very relaxing!

good location

  • 3 of 5

We chose this property as it was between rafting, tubing, Blue Ridge Pkwy and Asheville. We are an active family so we knew we wouldn't be spending much time in the cabin. It is peaceful. The cabin fit 5 adult size people well, but it does need a lot of updating. Old sheets, carpet, poor lighting in the kitchen and an odor downstairs assuming from the moisture. The owner is aware and attentive. There is only 1 window AC unit upstairs. We did have it on almost the entire time as we were there around early July. Wi-fi was spotty but expected for the area. We had a great time, but again, pretty much only slept in the cabin.

Owner's Response: Our home is an outstanding example of a professionally designed mountain cabin. Historically correct, furnished beautifully with antiques, authentic hickory furniture & many artifacts from the past, including a Welsh Dresser over 100 years old. Any attempt to "update" could effect everything we have tried to achieve. New sheets were provided but not used. Our kitchen has high ceilings with skylights that flood the area with light. We have a dehumidifier which we recommend you use to control dampness. A 2 day stay, although pleasant, is just not long enough to enjoy everything we have to offer.

Wonderful Cabin and Location

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great cabin and very good owners. Lights were left on for us upon arrival as we entered when dark. Sound of stream is very loud which was fantastic! Not a small stream in front of cabin. Very clean and well equipped inside. Parking and turnaround was very good. Elevation of this cabin was very nice as you could feel the cooler air. We recommend taking a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway which is only about 20 minutes from the cabin - incredible views.
