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.

Relaxing vacation with my family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Chestnut Cabin. The cabin is extremely clean and provides all the comforts of home. My kids had so much fun playing in the creek. We even had a visit from Maggie, the owner's dog. We were missing our own dogs, so we were so glad to see her! She is so friendly and fun.

The screened porch is fantastic. We ate most meals there. We took several walks around the neighborhood and had a great time watching the fireflies in the evening. The cabin is not far from grocery stores, restaurants and gas stations. It is also very convenient to the Asheville area.

The upstairs bedroom is better suited for kids or shorter people. We are a tall family and had trouble with bumping our heads. It wasn't a big issue though.

Overall, the cabin was great. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Laura, thank you so much for the great review of Chestnut Cabin. We strive VERY hard to make sure the cabin is the way we would want to find our own vacation spot and I thank you for recognizing our effort. We are conveniently located to most anything in the area and offer a quiet country feel so we're really glad to hear you appreciated that detail also. Maggie belongs to my sister who is here visiting and does love attention. Yes, LOL, the loft is perfect for kids or vertically challenged people. I'm not sure what Dad, RIP, was thinking when he built it that way but it is what it is...we 're glad you didn't find it to be a big issue. It is such a pleasure to have guest such as you we do hope you will come back again. Please be sure to tell your family and friends about Chestnut Cabin. Safe Travels, Wanda & Marie

The cabin is beautiful, cozy and peaceful and with everything you could possibly need.

We have had a wonderful holiday based at Chestnut Cabin. The beds are so comfortable, the cabin very well equipped and the porch and BBQ area just fantastic. We loved sitting out in a morning listening to the birds and the creek babbling in the woods.

We wanted an authentic cabin for our visit and we were not disappointed.

Marie and Bill were very welcoming and Wanda's directions to the cabin were perfect.

We experienced lots of wildlife around the cabin including rabbits, squirrels and a little turtle - and the fire flies on an evening were spectacular.

We have visited the area before from the UK but brought friends with us this time and they both said the cabin and the area surpassed all of their expectations.

I can't recommend the cabin highly enough - for its comfort, convenient location and overall charm. We hope to return in the future.

Beautiful, peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay April 25-28 at this charming, rustic cabin! It's quiet beauty is just what we were looking for when we planned our get away. We enjoyed the fireplace in the living room, gorgeous walks through the neighborhood, and day trips hiking on the mountain, and touring the Biltmore. But what we enjoyed most of all, was every morning sitting in the screened in porch drinking our coffee and watching in amazement at all the beauty in the backyard. We loved watching the butterflies and the red headed woodpecker. The cabin has everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We would love to come back. Thank you for having us!!!

Owner's Response: Rick and Mary, we are so please you enjoyed your getaway at Chestnut Cabin. While we all realize it isn't home, we do our best to make our guests feel at home and provide you with the essentials. We are in a nice neighborhood with friendly folks who just love to chat it up with you if you catch them out. And the location is great for exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway with all it's hiking trails. We also love to hear of our guests sitting on the front porch, drinking their coffee and rocking their cares away :) It is very easy to get lost in nature when you are so close to it. We hope you will come back soon, you will always be welcomed. And don't forget to tell your family and friends about us too. All the Best, Wanda, Marie and Bill.
