About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

I traveled to the mountains where the eagles made their nests. There I saw the hand of God: I saw creation at its best.......

To lighten your heart, ease your mind, relax your body, renew your spirit and heighten your sense of awareness to the peace and contentment found in the wonderful gifts of nature, there is no better place than the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains, and, as our many visitors know, COUNTRY HAVEN is where to experience it all.

This magical retreat is an authentic log cabin filled with beautiful antiques and many articles handcrafted with care by the owner adding a touch of warmth and charm to every room. For your comfort and pleasure, no detail has been overlooked. The cabin is well appointed to assure a comfortable stay. If you love peace and quiet, you will not be disappointed. This alluring cabin and our smaller cabin 'Tranquility Knoll' are situated on 1 1/2 acres of privately owned land, nestled among rolling hills with majestic mountains in the background. As you relax on the wrap-around covered porch or breakfast on the deck, you will enjoy the scenic view along with the country sounds of chickens,cows, horses and donkeys on the neighboring land. You will be pleasantly surprised when wild turkeys wander by and most amused as you watch buffalo. West Highland cows grazing in the adjacent field. Sitting quietly, you can even hear them munching on the grasses'.Evenings sit around the firepit and roast your marshmellos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow' what a great 4th July weekend. We came up here with our family and friends, and enjoyed the cabin so much. There was plenty of room for 4 adults,4 teens/preteens and infant. We cooked on the grill you provided, sat at the picnic table,played games, watched the kids run around in the yard and roll down the hill-such a lovely space. The buffalo were entertaining, the miniature donkey adorable, the views constantly changing and beautiful. The rooms were so beautifully and thoughtfully appointed, as was the amazing porch. Pillows and blankets on a porch- so luxurious. Oh-and we loved the mountain laurel railings-very cool. Thank you for a great weekend

Well equipped and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at Country Haven. The home was very clean and well equipped with anything we needed. We had 2 young children with us and they loved being able to play outside in the yard and look at the animals next door. The location was very convenient for visiting downtown Asheville. We would definitely return for another visit.

Perfect!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin over Thanksgiving and everything was just perfect! The cabin was so comfortable and the kitchen was equipped with everything that we needed for a Thanksgiving feast. The owners were wonderful to work with and answered every question that we had! The view is just beautiful and we enjoyed watching the bison and miniature donkeys. The location is close to Asheville however you feel as if you are miles away from town. It is so quiet and peaceful. We can't wait to return!

Fine family getaway spot!

  • 4 of 5

Country Haven provided a warm, comfortable place to stay while in Asheville for a family wedding. The location was ideal for getting into downtown Asheville easily while also enjoying a beautiful setting with lovely views. The kitchen was very well stocked for cooking and had a large family-sized table. Bison and miniature donkeys added to the fun for our grandson. Our only concerns were that the downstairs shower was slippery clean, a challenge for us old folks, and the beds downstairs were a little too soft. However, the futon and bed upstairs were just perfect!

Owner's Response: I am pleased you enjoyed your stay at Country Haven. I have no idea why the downstairs mattress felt different then the upstairs one since all 3 mattresses are the same brand purchased at the same time 2 years ago. The bathrooms do have rubber mats provided. They were/are located on the bottom shelf where towels are. We store them there instead of in the tub/shower so guests know that they are clean. Thank you for your review.

Great getaway for girls birthday celebration

  • 5 of 5

I rented Country Haven to host a birthday get away for my sister and two of her friends. Watercolor supplies in hand, four of us headed to this adorable cabin for 3 nights. We were delighted with the property. The décor was very inviting and interesting. The layout was perfect for our group, especially the walk in shower and two bedrooms downstairs. We spent lots of time on the side porch with a view of the mountains and the bison in the pasture next door. We also enjoyed feeding carrots and apples to the miniature donkeys down the road. We met several friendly neighbors as well as Linde. One day a local man delivering apples to some of his friends gave us a bushel of apples!! We found the kitchen well stocked and perfect for cooking our own meals. We went to Asheville & Black Mountain one day and found the drive to be easy, even though the best part was getting back to the tranquility of the cabin. We will rent again when we are in the Asheville area. I recommend this property or Linde's other property for anyone as a stand alone trip or a headquarters for sightseeing/shopping/dining in the Asheville area!
