About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Stoney Fork Cabin is nestled on the banks of Stoney Fork Creek, only five miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and 17 minutes from Downtown Asheville or The Biltmore.This is a place where memories are made. Life takes on the quality of yesteryear, with modern day comforts. You feel like you have "Gotten Back to Nature" and still can watch a movie or catch the big game on the big 50in flat screen TV. Walk out the back door, cross the private bridge, and hike the Pisgah National Forest...put on your "creek shoes", get a walking stick, and explore the creek...relax on the porch swing and TRY not to be lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature's best

There is a difference between old and neglected - this property is neglected. The uneven front steps had poison ivy growing by it, and the fire pit was surrounded by unkempt weeds and such. The back porch furniture had a chair held together with duct tape. The interior was dark, cobwebbed, and smelly. Parts of the ceiling was caved, and the floor was slanted. The main bed was squeaky, and the door to the room looked that it had been kicked in. The neighbors were right next door with nearly no privacy. I would not recommend this to anyone.

There was a crooked little man... in a crooked little house

  • 2 of 5

Not to say that the renters of this property are in any way crooked (I'm sure they aren't), but if this crooked little house survives for much longer without serious maintenance, it will be a miracle. I wish I had seen more reviews from reviewers that weren't wearing rose colored glasses.

There are some real positives to this location: semi-secluded, stone work of the house and chimney are impressive, nestled perfectly between the Blue Ridge Parkway and Asheville, hot tub, a/c, ample kitchen supplies...

However, I do wonder about the safety of this house as the creek side is really slanting, the back door does not close well and the ceiling beams are separating. The ceiling in the master bedroom is suspect as is the 'add on' of the laundry room. The house next door is quite close considering this property is listed as 'secluded' and 'a retreat'. I can't imagine the rate for this location being more than $99 per night until repairs are made to the roof, rotting siding and fascia, gutters, sagging ceilings, dripping bathtub, back door that doesn't shut, noisy dryer.

I personally can't image anyone wants to walk in to a vacation seeing things that need to be repaired. Some of you will say this guy is being really 'nit picky', but I would rather see a straightforward, honest write up besides " cabin we stayed in so far". Seriously? That can't possibly be true unless you have been living in a tent your entire life.

I guess everyone's definition of a cabin/cottage is different.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The Stoney Fork was built in the late 1800s and started its life as a bar and dance hall. It has been through many (not professional) remodels. It is crooked and has uneven floors. So if your looking for a well polished perfect rental please choose one of our new cozy log cabins. So why is this rental my favorite and why do we have it. Well it's a cottage right on the river and across the river via a foot bridge is the Pisgah Forest. It's a great place if you just want to come and relax. Every year we pick a new project to upgrade on this little river shack. So far we have replaced the floors in the main part, put a large flat screen tv in the living room, replaced the beds, added a hot tub, tore down the old shed on the property, replaced counter tops, and replaced appliances. There will be projects to last me my lifetime. So if your a layed back kind of person this may be a great choice, but if your a person that likes perfection please considered one of our other great (new) rentals.

Creekside Bliss

  • 4 of 5

My husband, son and his girlfriend and our dog Tucker had a wonderful stay in the cabin. It is an older cabin with a lot of character. The floors are a bit uneven in places and there are some spiffing up items that would definitely help, but we enjoyed the coziness of the interior. We spent our mornings on the back deck having our bagels and coffee by the stream. Soooo relaxing! The front porch is huge and a great place to enjoy being outside if the weather is rainy. The hot tub was a great place to end the day right next to the stream. Our Tucker enjoyed going for long walks in the forest just across the footpath into the Pisgah Forest. We can't wait to come back in the spring or early summer! Thank you for a great weekend!

Good news, bad news...

  • 4 of 5

Good news, bad news review. I would really prefer to give 3 and 1/2 stars with an equal weight to the good and bad of the property. This cabin is rustic and anyone coming to visit should have that understanding, as opposed to thinking they were about to visit 5 star pristine accommodations.

Good news:

The property actually has 3 bedrooms, as opposed to the 1 in the description. It could conceivably sleep 8 people.

The location is OUTSTANDING!

The hot tub overlooking the creek is wonderful.

Bad news:

There is a good deal of 'deferred maintenance' that needs to be addressed.

The master bedroom carpet is so worn that you can see the floor between the threadbare seams.

There are semi-completed paint projects in the cabin. There are also areas that need painting/touching up that have not been addressed.

The master bedroom bath's hot water could not be turned completely off. A constant drip/stream occurred during our visit.

The floors are slanted to the point of being unsafe for those with mobility issues.

Overall we had a good visit and enjoyed the fall colors. The sound of the flowing creek while sitting in the hot tub was worth the stay by itself.

With three kids this house had what they needed. Trails in the back to go on an adventure, the creek to explore/catch crawfish, hot tub and wifi. Nicely located by many destination points. Would recommend to anyone.

There is a Hot Air Ballooning company only minutes from the cabin. We are only 4 mile from the entrance of the Blue Ridge Parkway and a short 20 minute drive into Downtown Asheville. Our property touches the Pisgah National Forest. When you are in your cabin it feels like you are 100 miles away from all the troubles and Stresses of the world.
