Guestbook comments from the owner

Nice, home-like, quiet, clean & comfortable place to stay. Right at the bottom of the mountain from the Blue Ridge Parkway with access (when not closed) at the top. Enjoyable to kick back & watch TV after a long day of running around the area.

Beautifully tucked away gem!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was wonderfully rustic and beautifully decorated! Close to small town amenities...groceries etc. There are so many rentals that are missing one thing, such as a fireplace or outdoor grill. Chestnut Cabin had everything we wanted. Easy to book and pay with full instructions on everything through the Home Away app!

Owner's Response: Lela, thank you so much for the kind review. We are so happy you found the cabin to be everything you wanted & needed. We agree, we're close enough to be convenient but far enough away to be peaceful & relaxing. We sure hope you will find your way back to the cabin soon & that you will tell all your family and friends about us. Safe travels, Wanda & Marie

Family friendly, authentic log cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two kids, age 4 & 7, stayed here after Christmas while visiting family in Asheville. We loved the cabin and it’s unique decor. It was the perfect size for the four of us, and very family friendly. My only complaint was that there wasn’t a hot tub ;)

Owner's Response: Mimosa & family, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay at our Chestnut Cabin and found it to be perfect for your family. We have tried to furnish the cabin so our guests are comfortable and relaxed while away from home. We agree, a hot tub would be a perfect addition:) Please be sure to tell your family & friends about us and come back for another visit anytime. Wanda & Marie

Comfy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Rustic Chestnut Log cabin. The cabin had everything we needed to just relax before and after our daytime adventures sight seeing along the Blue Ridge Parkway. We cooked our meals and just had such a great time.

We enjoyed everything about it and would definately recommend to family and friends.

Thank you Wanda for letting us enjoy your cabin. Loved everything about the decor as well!

We are very hopeful you will tell your family & friends about us and that you will come back again real soon. Happy Holidays to you and yours-Wanda and Marie

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in this very up-to-date cabin. Clean, convenient, and all the technology to keep one in touch with the crazy world we live in. Location is great for exploring all the surrounding towns including Waynesville, Maggie Valley, Asheville, Black Mountain, Burnsville, and other small towns that make interesting day trips.

Thanks to Wanda and her mom for being so accessible during our visit. Recommended for couples and families who want to get away from the noise and clutter of city life!

Owner's Response: Frank, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and found the cabin to be to your liking. Mom and I work really hard to make sure our guests have a pleasant stay-the kind we would want to have ourselves when away from home. We also agree, our location is perfect for exploring the surrounding beauty and having great day trips. We hope you got to go up to the Blue Ridge Parkway (BRP) and take in the splendor of that amazing scenic ride. Many small towns, such as Brevard & Waynesville, are accessible from the BRP. If you didn't have time to make this journey you have to come back :) You will always be welcome at Chestnut Cabin. Safe & Happy Travels, Wanda & Marie

Charming and very tidy

  • 4 of 5

My two friends and I stayed at the Chestnut Cabin for 3 nights. We were immediately impressed with how cute it was, then even more impressed with how tidy it was. The beds were very comfortable. We had a few issues with water pressure, but the owner was quick to solve the problem. Water was hot and clean. We grilled out and loved hanging out on the pavilion. Location was a 20 minute drive to Asheville, less than 20 to Pisgah Mountain trail head, and about 30 minutes from Asheville Outdoor Center.

Owner's Response: Carly, thank you for your review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Chestnut Cabin even though we did have a little issue with the water. We appreciate our guests letting us know when there is an issue so we can get it resolved quickly. Nobody wants hassles while on vacation and we totally understand. We're happy the weather was nice and you were able to get out and enjoy the area, especially the pavillion. We think we are in a perfect location to partake of all our area has to offer. It was a pleasure having you, and your friends, and we hope you will come back again soon. Wanda, Marie and Bill
