Lovely vacation home!!! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our Christmas vacation this year at Heather's lovely vacation cabin in North Carolina. She is a fabulous and attentive hostess; everything that we could possibly imagine was provided at the cabin (including a terrific resource book with things to do, places to go, local shops to visit, etc.) The cabin was clean, bright and well appointed. We will be back :) Thank you, Heather!

Pleasant cabin, but not convenient to town

  • 3 of 5

The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. However the fireplace and basement heater are both gas and we couldn't use them without the fire alarm going off. We give this cabin 3 stars due to this inconvenience as well as the closet place to get food is over 30 miles away. We thought it was located in Marion which was what I read but it's actually in Nebo. 30 min from Marion and a hour from Asheville. Now as for the good side of the trip, the cabin was clean and we'll stocked with cooking utensils, blankets, towels, etc. Had a ton of board games and video consoles to keep you occupied if stuck inside.

Beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend, loved all the little extras and personal touches of the cabin. Amazing views, beautiful neighborhood and lots to do. Only complaint was too short of a weekend. Can't wait to come back.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our biannual motorcycle trip to the Smokey Mountains. There were 6 adults and we always try to find a different place to stay. This home is beautiful with a small but nice view of the mountains from a wonderful deck. The entire development was beauty. Everything we needed was the. The only problem was there was no water pressure on the upstairs shower and downstairs bathroom sink. Having grills available to use made it nice to cook and not have to eat out all the time. Would recommend this home

About Heather Spaulding

My husband and I love the mountains and decided to build a log home because we love the rustic feel of a log home. We love to hike and enjoy the outdoors.

Heather Spaulding purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Heather Spaulding chose Marion

We decided to build in this community because it's peaceful and quiet yet it's just 25 minutes to town!
