Overview

About the property

Bring a bottle of wine - Watch the Sunset in Solitude from our deck

Stay in our Spotted Rock Cabin

Our charming red cabin is a two bedroom, one bath loft home built high up on a mountain ridge with views extending far off towards the Smoky Blue Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Facing west, watch the sun set from the deck while relaxing in our rocking chairs with a cocktail. If you have just returned from a hard day of site seeing, soak up the heat in our hot tub while looking at the stars or if your fortunate, falling snow.....a bucket-list item.

At three thousand feet, get away from the summer heat, enjoy our rustic wood stove fireplace in the evenings and hike through the hundreds of acres of surrounding forest, and through our own 60 acres of solitude.

If feeling alone, just talk to Alexa anytime she is needed: Alexa, play NPR...or...Alexa, what is the weather like? If you must tell Alexa words that would pique the interest of the NSA, do that at the beginning of your stay so that the black-clad commandoes who will surround the cabin won't bother the next guest!

You can reach the cabin in your regular car, and when 'home', the shack with its two compulsory mounted deer heads looking over the living room will feel like your place for rest and relaxation.

Don't look for the granite, you wont find it, but do bring your laptops as there is high speed internet available, a wireless printer/scanner all ready for your office away from home and netflix for bumming it on a lazy day.

Feel your blood pressure fall as you drive up to the top of our ridge, passing through the security gate to reach this exclusive mountain top where you can rest easy knowing you are in the coziest cabin here.

You cannot see your neighbors, they are a good long walk away. Perfect for strolls, and seeing the deer that roam around.

See the Area

Shop for antiques or groceries in Brevard NC which is 20 minutes away. Dine at the pleasant Red Lion Inn, at the bottom of the mountain (1 mile from the cabin).

Fish at our local lake, which is within a mile or if you like hiking through the woods, straight down the mountain.

See the spectacular mountain meadow waterfall within two miles of your family home in the mountains.

Go on Day-Trips

The Transylvania county / Asheville area is called the 'Land of Waterfalls' for good reason. Visit one of the five state parks that surround the cabin, drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, in about thirty minutes, dine at the fabulous Pisgah Inn restaurant (58 min from your cabin) overlooking the entire area.

Visit the Biltmore House (1hr 19min from the cabin) for a day of seeing how you will never live. Go to the Asheville Farmers Market (1hr 5min) and pick up jams, honey, dried fruit and all manner of fresh produce...so you can be healthy.

Go kayaking or tubing with the Headwaters Outfitters (9 minutes from the cabin, near Rosman) down the French Broad or Davidson Rivers....

Use our 4.5 inch telescope to show your family the planets in our clear, starry sky after you downloaded a sky app to your smart phone.

Visit Asheville (1 hour) and dine at the Mellow Mushroom in downtown, knowing you can escape back to your cabin when the artists wake up.

Slide down the rocks at Sliding Rock (30 min from our Brevard Cabin), go to Pisgah National Forest, Hike in The Great Smoky Mountains National Forest, Go fishing in the Nantahala National Forest, pick-nick in the Table Rock State Park, drive through the Ceasars Head State Park or view deer in the Chattahoochee National forest.

If scenic drives is your thing, Route 64 passes right by, and is one of America's most scenic highways with a car-stopping waterfall or view about every .02 miles. Outfit your whole family with neck braces before you go ... you will be breaking so often.

Hang out on a rainy day in the cabin, showing your incredible youtube videos to your friends and family on the TV through our chromecast device and your chrome browser.

Take a day trip to the town of Highlands (1 hour from the cabin) where most of the porches and bently's west of the Mississippi are found. Drive past one of the many country clubs near Cashiers (45 min) and Lake Toxaway and the Greystone Inn (25 min), knowing that you would have to sell your house to pay the entrance fee to become a member.

Pick-up that nagging relative at the Asheville Airport (54 minutes from your Brevard Rental Cabin)....yes, with all that nagging, it's a day trip!

Take a tour of the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute PARI (30 min) to see their huge radio telescopes and to learn how they transmitted the words 'one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind' to us slugs at home on our couches while Armstrong got some exercise strolling about the moon.

Visit Hendersonville (56 min from the cabin) and stroll down energetic main street on Friday evening.

Lastly, have breakfast at the Country Skillet in Rosman (11 min from the cabin) so you can be among other folks like yourself and work on that belly fat that we soooo need to be hiking off.

To book is easy, if the calendar shows it is not already booked, book online! If you have kids younger than five, contact me about their safety first. The cabin is pet friendly, but we need to charge a small pet cleaning fee for the cleaners extra time.

Come and stay at our Spotted Rock Cabin!

About Jonathan

Hi, I am Jonathan..............

I love the area and our cabin and have enjoyed visiting it for over eight years. The cabin is like the perfect frontier cabin that our forefathers never had with all the modern conveniences and charm...

Being from Florida, the North Carolina mountains and this area specifically are akin to heaven for my family and I. No air-conditioning needed in the middle of summer (although the cabin has it)! Mild winters. The stars are bright at night. You can breathe easily, the temperature and air is crisp and the people in the neighborhood are so incredibly hospitable.

I love visiting the quaint local towns and cannot get enough of the scenic mountains, streams and waterfalls.

This is a good place to recharge, I do when I am here. There is plenty of room to hike and stroll right from the cabin door.

.............. Come and stay!

Why Jonathan chose Smoky Mountains

Location Location Location: there is a 'good for the soul' feeling about the place.

What makes this cabin unique

Solitude. You will have Rest & Relaxation here!

Beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

I took my husband to your cabin as a surprise getaway. I knew I'd enjoy the company but I didn't know how much I would fall in love with your cabin or North Carolina!

We enjoyed the scenic views from the deck and the fantastic drive into the mountains. We spent a day as Jocassee Gorges fishing. While it was cold, the views were totally worth it. We also went to Highlands. We hiked to the Satulah Summit. Standing at 4500 ft with no railings and no other people around was beyond amazing.

We definitely hope to be back someday (I wish someday was this weekend). Being born and raised in Wisconsin, we would never leave. But North Carolina drove a hard bargain and made us consider moving someday.

Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation!!

Perfect Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and the location was perfect. The hot tub was an added bonus after a day of hiking. Plus, we were able to bring our yellow lab and she really enjoyed exploring the woods.

What a great getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely little cabin. Location was great and we felt a little adventurous getting up the mountain. We loved the waterfalls in the area and the restaurants in Brevard. I brought my beagel and she enjoyed walking and sniffing all around the cabin. Hope to be back soon.

Beware of Spotted Rock

  • 1 of 5

We were absolutely miserable. The directions failed to mention that during even the slightest rain you cant exit the mountain. The road washed out while we were there from one over night rain. The directions also failed to mention that any wrong turn puts you on scary private property. We arrived at the cabin and were lost. I called the owner to get directions but he never returned. We ended up having to call the sheriff to take us to our cabin as it was unreachable by small car. Then when we got there the cabin had not been cleaned. The comforters and bedding all were stained and had dog hair on them. There were even a pair of calvin klein underwear under the downstairs bed. We tried to get in the hot tub, which half the jets work but couldn't get it to go over 98 degrees no matter how long we let it warm up. We ended up leaving a day early because a storm was coming and the neighbors told us if we didn't want to be stuck we should leave. All and I Mean ALL of the property around the cabin was posted no trespassing, so our out of the cabin hikes were shut down. Even the lake in the pictures was muddy and shallow. I really feel duped. thanks for our great honeymoon.NOT!!!! If I had to say anything about our visit it would be, FIND ANOTHER CABIN. This one is not what you want. We ended up leaving a day early and going to the beach to spend the rest of our honeymoon.

Owner's Response: Anthony, when someone looks at the fifty plus glowing reviews prior to this which cover every subject touched on here, for some reason, this is the only review with under four or five stars? Can 53 other reviews be mistaken? I know that hundreds of guests I have spoken to over the years have always reported a fantastic experience, and no issues. This review seems to be an exception. I checked with the county sheriff about the stated call to them, and they report that no calls such as described came in from anyone during that period, nor would they provide that sort of assistance if it had happened. I believe that sets the tone for the validity of this review, and reading all the other reviews will allow one to see this is, plainly described, an outlier...the only one. I must conclude that there may be some other motivation here as the evidence does not agree. Thank you for staying.

Great place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The hot tub was the perfect spot after hikes, and the mountain views were lovely.

Couldn't ask for a better place to reacquaint ourselves with nature. Our dog was most interested in the wild turkeys:)
