Everything we needed = No stress!

  • 5 of 5

Cathy's Cabin is exactly how rentals should be done. Pictures were accurate and Cathy was very accommodating (we added on an extra night a couple months before our 4th of July stay) and also non-intrusive. I've stayed at several homes off VRBO and I can't tell you how nice it was to come in and have some necessities already in place (e.g. Toilet paper, hand soap). These are things that a lot places leave to you to remember to bring before you even arrive, otherwise the first thing you have to do on vacation is run errands! So we were able to check-in, rest a bit, and then go stock up on essentials and groceries. We tried to pay it forward by leaving extra paper towels/toilet paper for the next guests. Anyway, everything you could need in the kitchen (utensil and appliance wise) was there. Just really a fabulous trip and we wished we had stayed longer!!

Perfect getaway in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Just as described and pictured. Loved our stay. Everything you could need was provided in a lovely welcoming setting. Comfy beds, couches, and eating areas. Plenty of towels and linens. Enjoyed morning coffee with my dog on the spacious porch every day listening to the birds wake up above the quiet street. The hot tub was a perfect end to our day. Really appreciated the gated wrap around porch and fenced side yard for dog safety. I look forward to returning.

Great amenities and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. I stayed with my wife and 8 year old daughter and we had a jam packed itinerary. This property is very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and all of the beauty it has to offer in western NC. It is also close to downtown Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. The cabin is cozy and easily large enough for a family of four. The amenities are great. The cabin is clean and the furnishings are very comfortable. The hot tub is a great addition for a long day of sight-seeing and hiking. My daughter especially enjoyed the hot tub and the bunk beds. Bring toiletries and ground coffee (if you drink it) and this place is a great mountain retreat.

Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Cathy's cabin was great. It's cozy but with plenty of space. We enjoyed the hot tub out on the porch as well as the comfy couches in the den. It had everything we needed and was very clean. It was just the right balance of isolation in the woods and convenience - a short drive to restaurants, movie theater, and shopping and little longer drive to Asheville itself.

Bad mattress in second floor bedroom

  • 3 of 5

Cathy's cabin outside of Asheville was very clean and welcoming. There was an ample supply of dishes, pots, pans, bath towels, and towels for the hot tub. Plastic wrap, aluminum foil, paper plates, plastic ware, and napkins were provided. The living room furniture was very comfortable. We ate meals on the deck which were lovely.


Some VRBO places provide coffee; others do not. This unit does not provide the coffee for the coffee maker. Perhaps the type of coffee maker should be mentioned on the listing so people know what type of coffee should be brought. (Ex. Keurig, grind coffee, special coffee pods with ground coffee in them.)

Renters should be aware that there was no shampoo or bath soap supplied.

The king bed on the first was quite comfortable.

However, the queen mattress in the second floor bedroom needs to be replaced! When two non-overweight people slept in it, as hard as the couple tried, they could not stay on their own side of the bed. Instead, they always rolled to the middle rendering the bed quite uncomfortable.

Overall, Cathy's cabin was a great spot to gather with two dear friends of ours.
