About Rebecca

We started coming to Asheville in 2002 and we fell in love with the area. We bought our 1st log cabin in 2004, and then we fell in love with the vacation rental business too. We now have 5 amazing log cabins to offer. I sold my business last year, now I devote my time helping people from all over the country create a once in a lifetime vacation experience. All of our cabins are listed on vrbo and can also be viewed at our web site below. There you can view; Blue Wolf Lodge which is a beautiful 2 bedroom 2 bath modern log cabin perfect for small families or a couples retreat. Cedar Mountain Lodge is a 1921 turn of the century 1 bedroom log cabin perfect for a romantic get away. Bears Den Mountain Cabin was the 1st one we bought. Bears Den is also a 4 bedroom 3 bath Custom Built Log Cabin and will accommodate a large party of 12. Hickory Nut Lodge is a historic 1928 log cabin located in between Chimney Rock and Asheville in the most beautiful part of the Smoky Mountains.

Why Rebecca chose Candler


This is an amazing cabin! I would consider Magic Mountain Lodge to be our Premier Property. At 3400 sq. ft. this Magnificent Log Cabin is just simply Amazing! First, you travel through (picture perfect) 'Hominy Valley', past horse pastures, wild turkeys and free roaming deer to get to the cabin. When you arrive, you are taken back by the enormous size of the log home. Everything is new and up-dated. All of the rooms are clean and spacious. The bedrooms are big, the bathrooms are big, and the two-story Great Room is 832 sq. ft.!!! We have worked very hard to offer a really special place for you to gather together with friends and family. We hope you love the cabin as much as we do.

This property was BEAUTIFUL!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a BEAUTIFUL home that fit 16 of us!! Magic mountain was the perfect place for a bunch of friends from college to reunite for a weekend cabin retreat. We were worried about space as there were a lot of us, but the house was very spacious and homey. The hot tub was perfect to sit out and relax on a cold night and the basement game room downstairs was perfect to keep us busy throughout the day. We spent most of the weekend in the cabin just spending time with each other and playing games, but it was only about a 25/30 minute drive to downtown Asheville. This was such a wonderful weekend and we’ll most definitely stay here again if we come back to Asheville!!

Beautiful huge cabin with great beds!

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was great! We went for my husband's 40th birthday with 5 couples. There was plenty of room for everyone, it was especially nice that all the beds in the house were at least doubles. It was a little strange to have a third day bed in the one room with two other beds but the room was so big it would have made sense for a large family to be able to all stay together.

The downstairs game area was a lot of fun to, lots of choices for fun. The kitchen had plenty of cookware and dishes but there was nothing in the fridge like we are used to at most vrbos, we weren't looking for anything substantial but a bottle of ketchup would have been nice so we didn't have to run back out to the store.

Also there is a weird internet rule that you can't stream anything. That's fine but I guess watching anything on your phone or playing any games or doing really anything is concidered streaming. We were charged an extra fee which was fine but just make sure you go to enjoy the cabin and don't even bother using the internet just to be safe.

Over all, the place was big, beautiful and very well maintained. It was the perfect place for a large group to spend the long weekend. We would come back!

Perfect for a mountain get away and vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We gathered with our grown children, their spouses and our two grandsons to celebrate summer birthdays. We had a wonderful time! The house was perfect for our group and the kids especially enjoyed the rec room downstairs. Our chef son-in-law thoroughly enjoyed the large kitchen and the gas grill. We were easily able to access tubing, trout fishing, and gem mining for the boys while still maintaining a sense of privacy and peace in the beautiful mountains. Butterflies greeted me each morning as I sat on the porch welcoming the morning. All in all - it was the perfect getaway!
