Welcome to Lonesome Valley, an unparalleled Cashiers retreat, nestled in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. Unwind and relax in this private cottage, available for rent on a limited basis, tucked away deep in the hardwoods of Lonesome Valley’s 800 pristine acres. There are only 28 cottages in this gated community which is surrounded by the largest Box Canyon in the eastern U.S.
The cottage sits on the banks of Lonesome Valley’s largest stream and trail, allowing you to start your daily hike just steps from your back door. Wake up to cool, breezy mornings and enjoy your first cup of coffee in front of a roaring fire on the spacious porch overlooking the crystal clear mountain stream.
Lonesome Valley is known for its amazing natural beauty and truly breath-taking views. In addition to 11 miles of on-property hiking trails, guests are welcome to enjoy canoes, paddle boats, kayaks, fly fishing, and the 6-hole disc golf course set up on the Lonesome Valley meadow. From late May through October dinner is served on site at Canyon Kitchen, providing one of Western North Carolina’s premiere dining experiences.
After an invigorating hike on Lonesome Valley’s 11 miles of private groomed trails, make your way into Cashiers (2 miles) for a day of shopping, dining, and/or waterfall viewing. Save a day for a visit to Lake Glenville (10 minutes from Lonesome Valley) for pontoon boating and tubing/skiing on Cashier’s best kept secret.
Fully furnished, the cottage comfortably sleeps six guests in 3 bedrooms / 3.5 baths. This Lonesome Valley jewel was custom designed by Mountainworks, designer of the 2010 Southern Living Cottage of the Year. The master suite is located on the first floor with two guest bedrooms upstairs. The open plan kitchen is fully equipped and beautifully appointed with wood cabinets and granite countertops.
Dine indoors on a large heart pine table or enjoy an outdoor meal on the covered porch. A cozy window seat in the library/study provides a great escape for afternoon naps and/or reading.
You can enjoy warm, relaxing fires in both the great room as well as on the large porch overlooking the stream. Perfect opportunities for enjoying your morning coffee and/or making those nightly Smores!
Lonesome Valley is situated 2.5 miles east of the quaint town of Cashiers and a short 15-minute drive to Highlands, NC. The Asheville, NC airport is exactly one hour from Lonesome Valley and Atlanta can be reached in three hours by car.
All linens are provided, as well as starter paper products. Every detail has been considered for your comfort. The house is professionally cleaned before your arrival, and local waterfall and trail maps are provided.

About the owner: After spending an amazing eight years as host of ESPN's Fly Fishing America television program, I thought I had seen most of America's extraordinary natural settings. Then I discovered Lonesome Valley, an amazing sanctuary with truly incredible views and phenomenal surroundings. We have treasured every moment spent here over the past several years and look forward to sharing that experience with others.
