About the property

Custom-Built Cabin (Sleeps 5)...Wrap Around Porch, Upstairs Balcony

Our beautiful cabin has two stories with loft sleeping, a wraparound porch and a private balcony off the upstairs bedroom. Sleeps up to five people.

One king size bed and a day bed are upstairs. There is a lovely sitting area upstairs with windows for wonderful views all around.

Downstairs there is a kitchen full of amenities, stacked washer/dryer, dining table, futon, cozy sitting areas, a dvd/bluray player, and a 3/4 bath. Phone service (landline-unlimited US calling) is available as well.

Treat yourself to a cozy bath with hot water on the deck outside in the clawfoot tub (may not be available during winter months).

Our cabin is in a truly beautiful location on the hillside overlooking the small hollow below. We offer over 60 acres of beautiful, private-access, mountain property for your enjoyment. There are nearly three miles of hiking trails. Enjoy easy and private access from one of two trailheads. Signs are also placed along the different paths to guide your way. If you like hiking in the mountains while listening to birds and other sounds of nature, you will love our trails. These grass bed trails are rustic and maintained monthly to remove any fallen limbs and provide a 5-6 foot wide path for hiking. They range in difficulty from level to steep to moderate. Bring some good hiking shoes, step out into nature and enjoy a beautiful slice of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We take great pride in offering a comfortable, clean, and private experience for our guests. We hope you enjoy your stay at The Cabin!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Wild Harmony was motivated by our college aged daughter who wanted to see Mom and Dad as well as enjoy some off campus time with her friends from school. This amazing mountain hideaway was a perfect solution for all. We brought the "kids" to Wild Harmony Farm from the airport in Charlotte (about 2 1/2 hours away) and gave them the choice of the Cottage or the Cabin (we got both, this a great situation for families with adult kids, wedding groups and so forth). The four of them immediately chose the Cabin for it's fun layout and rustic/hip charm. Situated on a wooded rise over looking the hollow wherein the Cottage is placed, the Cabin is inconspicuous even in March with the trees just beginning to bud. An excellent place for a romantic getaway or for a small family to get a taste of WNC. Located back in the wooded mountains near Marshall NC the farm is remote yet easily accessible. As for the young folk they enjoyed the excellent hiking trails that lace the 62 acre property and even Dad was able to make the mile climb to Berry Knob a couple of times. Naturally, the young ladies felt the call of urban life every now and again and took off to Asheville to get in on some craft brew and local entertainment. Asheville is about a thirty minute drive. And while on the topic of craft brew and music, we all enjoyed some bluegrass jams in the little town of Marshall which is only about ten minutes away. Marshall is also home to some fun shops and a large grocery store where we stopped to supply the kitchen and stock up on local beers. The real magic of this place, however, lies in the amazing outdoors which surrounds one on all sides. There are trail rides and raft rentals, literally hundreds of miles of hiking trails and fishing opportunities galore. For example, the Laurel River is thirty minutes away and has an easy meandering trail as well as trout and bass. Excellent birding is to be had right on Wild Harmony as it is a sanctuary. Grouse, pileated woodpeckers and towhees are just a few "new birds" that caught the eye of this Kansas native. One drives Little Pine Rd right along the French Broad River to get to Caney Fork so each can bear frequent witness to the beauty of this waterway which geologically speaking is the third oldest river on Earth. Night or day, in or out, country or city, the Cabin at Wild Harmony is a great place from which to enjoy this corner of the universe.

Enjoyed the hiking trails. Made a trip into Marshall for breakfast and some snacks at a natural food store. A nice short drive to Asheville. Also highly recommend stopping in mars hill for dinner at papa nicks the service was awesome and the food was amazing. Already planning a return trip in may for our oldest son birthday to do a horse ride at the stable. The only down side I found was the blower on the gas stove didn’t seem to work correctly.

Beautiful, secluded cabin with beautiful private trails

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautiful! The cabin is a little smaller than I anticipated but it was so cozy! The trails were pretty steep at some parts but if you follow Berry Knob trail, the clearing at the top is simply beautiful. I stayed the weekend with my best friend and we had an AMAZING time! Not far from Asheville but the cabin itself is away from the city which I LOVED. The driveway was a little steep but we did it in a little 2 wheel drive Mazda with no issue. I'm so glad we came here and hope to come back again soon!

Secluded & Peaceful cabin in the mountains

  • 3 of 5

This cabin is beautifully located in the mountains. It's very peaceful & secluded. It gives you a chance to escape the everyday hussel life brings yet it is close enough to Asheville. We enjoyed our visit very much.

The reason I am giving this a 3 star vs a 5 star is because the owners neglect to suggest you drive a 4 wheel drive up to the cabin. It is not all the way paved and you have to go up a very narrow & steep gravel road. It was gut wrenching for us as our SUV that isn't 4 wheel drive slipped back a few times. We feel this should be disclosed and it wasn't. Thank goodness we went up in the fall I can't imagine how we'd get up there if there was snow.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you had a wonderful time at the Cabin. Many guests love how quiet and relaxing and close to nature it is, while being so close (~25 minutes) to downtown Asheville. Sorry to hear of your difficulty with the driveway. Leaving the pavement, there is ~1/4 mile of maintained gravel road leading up to the property. As we mention in the information sheet, there is a short, steeper section as you approach the cabin itself. While few have had difficulty (even with 2wd), we do provide a parking recommendation for incoming guests involving a three-point turn as an alternative for ease of access. Thank you.

Beautiful and secluded

  • 5 of 5

My young daughter and I had a great stay at this very quiet, secluded property surrounded by hiking trails and beautiful views. The cabin was lovely and had everything we needed including NO internet access and NO cable television. We loved it!

Rare, head of the mountain location with privacy and comfort in the heart of nature's beauty. Within short walking distance of horseback riding with the welcoming, warmhearted folks at Sandy Bottoms Trail Rides. The farmhouse and cabin are only three miles from the beautiful French Broad River. Blue Heron Whitewater Rafting is a short five miles away. A beautiful seven miles of scenic mountain roadways bring you to restaurants and shopping in the historic town of Marshall down alongside the River. From here you are only 30 minutes to Hot Springs as well. All of this and it's only 30 minutes to vibrant Asheville with its abundant shopping, museums, gardens, nightlife, and myriad other attractions and amenities.
