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!

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

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful trip! Serenity log cabin is beautifully appointed and immaculate. Located in a beautiful gated community with breathtaking views, this cabin is equipped with all the comforts of home. A safe haven to return to after a long day of activity. It is about 40 minutes to downtown Asheville, Chimney Rock, and a short ride to Linville Falls and Blue Ridge Parkway. We were a party of six and were very comfortable at the cabin. It was great to be able to use the kitchen to make breakfast and dinner. Heather is very easy to work with, and takes care of all of the details in an efficient manner. Can't wait to go back!

Charming Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I just weathered the heat wave of 2012 at this charming cabin in Grandview Peaks. And let me say, the cabin was great. It's the perfect size for a small family (or for just 2, like us) and had all the conveniences of home. At night we could lie in bed and watch the stars twinkling in the night sky right outside our bedroom window, and even though we didn't see any deer or bear, we did enjoy a visiting hummingbird that stopped by every afternoon. This is a great place to relax and unwind from the work-a-day world, as there are no streetlights, no traffic and no people right next door. If you're looking for excitement, this probably isn't the place for you, but if you're looking for a great place to sit back and take life at a slower pace, I highly recommend it. And while you're in the area, I also recommend you eat at the Countryside BBQ. Yum! Yum!
