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

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.

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

Comfortable, clean, rustic cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our 4 day stay at the Chestnut Cabin. Great location for daily hiking trips in the Pisgah Mts. We had our morning coffee on the front porch and evening cocktails on the back patio. The outdoor grille was awesome and the master bedroom bed was very comfortable. Would most certainly come back.

Owner's Response: Cherie, thank you so much for the kind review. We try very hard to make sure our guests are comfortable and have the accommodations they are used to having at their own home. Chestnut Cabin was built by our loving Dad and we treasure it with all our hearts. We are in a GREAT location for hiking in the mountains and being away from the hustle of the city. This is an especially wonderful time to be here with the changing of the seasons. Thank you again for choosing Chestnut Cabin as your destination. We hope you will come back & visit with us again. Please tell your family and friends about our little cabin tucked away very close to Mt Pisgah.-Wanda, Marie and Bill

Worth every penny and in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Exactly as described. Well maintained and in a perfect location. Fablulous porch and gazebo. The weather during our weekend was frightful but the property delightful. The owners made sure we had everything we needed for a memorable stay.
