Private, peaceful, secluded but great central location for exploring

  • 5 of 5

Loved the cabin from the first minute we got there. Spent a lot of time on the back porch next to the creek and our Lab spent most of the time in the creek, he loved it. Rhododendrons were blooming and added a magical touch. All the local folks were very friendly and helpful. They were having the Old Crab Fest in Cruso the day we left, fun small-town stuff. Good location for visiting waterfalls - sliding rock is just down the road too. We've rented cabins 2-3 times each year for the last several years and this is probably my favorite. I call it rustic-chic - perfect old cabin feel with some nice modern touches and very comfortable. Everything you need in the kitchen, plenty of towels, all that you would need, just bring your own food and condiments. Hot tub located right next to the creek is very nice and the hot tub was clean and working great. Some water in the fridge somehow and the gas grill needs to be replaced, but this is a solid 5-Star cabin in my book any day. Wonderful!

Absolutely Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is unbelievable. It is located on a completely secluded property with a gorgeous, rushing creek running alongside the back of the cabin. Everything we needed was provided; all we had to do was bring our food and clothing. It is located very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway between Asheville, Brevard and Cherokee - so beautiful scenery is everywhere and there are lots of interesting and fun attractions nearby. Do yourself a HUGE favor and book this amazing cabin!!!

The Cottage was in a very secluded area in the Pisgah National Forrest. It was located within a few feet of the creek right off the back porch! The home was wonderfully set up for a couple or even up to four people very comfortably! The hot tub on the back porch beside the creek was definately a plus! Everything was at the cottage you would need in a home to cook, clean, or use at your own home. My only advice would be to take an atlas/map. We used our GPS on our phone to get to the cottage but we lost service and did not have any phone service while we were there. Other than that it was exceptional!

Beautiful Weekend Relaxing Among the Trees

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cottage for a weekend trip to explore Pisgah and Asheville, and could not have had a better time. The cottage was even better than expected, with a beautifully-lit side porch perfect for eating meals by the rushing river or relaxing in the evenings. The views of the river from the fire pit, hammock and hot tub were absolutely beautiful. Would definitely stay here again.

It was so nice to hang out on the hammock by the rushing creek. Everyone around town was super friendly too.
