Graves Cabin - Luxury Cabin Near Waynesville & Asheville

Loved By All!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Graves Cabin over a wedding weekend in May and it couldn't have been more perfect! The two kids loved the loft and the four adults were more than comfortable "downstairs". The cabin is well appointed and very cozy, one family member called it "cozy chic". Because we were there for a family wedding, we were able to spend time in the lodge house as well and it is amazing!! The property itself is beautiful with one pond that a few in our group swam in, another that they successfully caught fish in, and a fork of the Pigeon River that others splashed around in. Several in our group took daily runs on the property as well and were thrilled to encounter cows, horses, turkeys, geese, and bunnies. The outdoor common areas - dock, swing, fire pit and grill area were also enjoyed by all. As mentioned in other reviews, the Blue Ridge Parkway is a short drive from the property. We hope to visit East Fork Ranch again.

A Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

I was very pleased with our stay and time at the Graves Cabin. The location is fantastic, especially if you have a young family. Our boys had a blast hiking through out the property. The property was very clean and met all of our expectations and more. The property attendant was super nice and very attentive with our needs or questions we might have had. We did have a issue with the washer and dryer, but the attendant went out of her way to resolve our problem. Besides, this small issue, I do not hesitate recommending this property. The next time I am in the area, I plan on staying at the Graves Cabin again.

Beautiful cabin getaway near Blue Ridge Parkway

  • 5 of 5

Us two couples, stepbrothers with wives, came to this beauty and had a great time. We were met by Neda, who immediately made us feel at home and welcome. The house is sparkling clean and the beds were comfortable with wonderful linens. The bathroom and towels were also high quality. The kitchen was also lovely, with plenty of plates, cups, silverware and cookware. The coffeemaker was a quality one, too. We set on the porch nightly, and spent 2 nights at the fire ring by the swim lake, and it was so pretty it was like a dream. The other nights, we built a fire in the open fireplace. Neda and her husband re-supplied all the wood, blew leaves and visited with our brother when he caught 2 fish-- which we ate! Yummy, too.

What is unique for the area is its location and the bedrooms. I had looked really hard for suite bedrooms, queens at least, with separate bathrooms. This was wonderful. The twin bunks in the loft were cute, great quality mattresses, and had a toilet/sink. We didn't really use this, but it would be great for kids. But the bedrooms were fine. The location is very central to vista driving. The Parkway is only 6 miles away, and the grocery stores in Canton, and the restaurants in Waynesville were not too far. Try Maggies for seafood, it was amazing. Asheville with the Biltmore, beer, and attractions was easy to get to. But it was a drive, not a walk, so be aware you are not next door to a city. But who cares, we cooked, we laughed, we played, and we ate in most days.

The only minus's were that the shower heads had a little age, and were not great, but had plenty of hot water. Also it is closer to the other cabins on the property, but everyone shared well. So I kinda had to dig to find a minus, but that lets you know that it was really very nice. But I hope every home away has a host like Neda, and wonderful owners who obviously care for their guests. Maybe we will be back, and if we do, it would be here.

Delightful property!

  • 5 of 5

The Graves cabin exceeded our family's expectations. The cabin was charming, well-equipped, and very comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing on the front porch with it's beautiful farm views, and also recreating on the surrounding property filled with opportunities for hiking, bird-watching, fishing and swimming-something for every member of our family to enjoy. The care-takers were so friendly and helpful in providing tips for our local outings, and always available. Our deepest thanks to the Klein family for a wonderful summer vacation experience-we hope to visit East Fork Ranch again next season.

Beautiful cabin in wonderful area!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was everything and more than we expected. It was cozy, beautifully decorated and had everything that we needed. Nestled in the woods, surrounded by the natural beauty of ponds, a river, mountains and wildlife, yet very close to so many things to do in the area. The property was very clean and very well maintained. Communication with the owner was easy and questions were answered promptly. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a vacation that has it all...peaceful surroundings where you have the opportunity to put your feet up and relax or venture out to the many attractions in the area. It was a fantastic vacation!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property is beautiful, plenty to do there on site. hiking trails, fishing, swimming on property, plus very close to Sliding Rock, Looking Glass Falls, etc. Waynesville is a great town and it is only a 15 minute drive away. I am already recommending this place to my friends. The property manager is super friendly and very helpful.
