About Kay Irvin

We live in Morganton, NC and are both retired. We love to travel, and appreciate most when we are able to stay in a place that has a story, and that has a warmth about it that you just can’t find in a hotel. So, we have finally decided to share our cabin with others and hope that everyone will enjoy it as much as we do.

Kay Irvin purchased this cabin in 1985

Why Kay Irvin chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We purchased the property for this home in 1985 and years later, when our two children were in their pre-teen years, we decided that we should have a family bonding project of building a mountain cabin. What began as a family project has turned into our family haven. We enjoy the opportunity to retreat to this special place, where we relish in being on 'Cabin Time,' a time we can all just sit back and cherish the beauty of the mountains and the company of loved ones.

What makes this cabin unique

This area is to us, the perfect spot. We are all outdoor enthusiasts and this location provides wonderful opportunities for adventures throughout every season of the year; hiking, swimming, skiing, universities, golfing, local southern culture, mountain wineries, biking, rock climbing and being just minutes away from Pisgah National Forest. After playing outside all day, there is nothing quite like coming back to the cabin and enjoying a cup of coffee or glass of wine on the deck, taking in the beautiful scenery.

clean, well stocked, a lovely home

  • 5 of 5

The home was so clean, inviting and very well stocked. Our group enjoyed snow tubing at Jonas Ridge, the Linville Caverns, hiking in the trails behind the home and making smores at the fire pit!! Playing cards around the table with the fireplace going was wonderful too. I would highly recommend this to others. The owners were very courteous and caring as they made sure all was well upon our arrival. We plan to return in the future! Jan, 16, 2017

Magical place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was just what we needed as a family to relax and recharge. The pictures do not fully show the charm of this place. I loved the many different lamps and decor that created a cozy, welcoming environment. We will be back!

Quiet, peaceful, restorative; pleasant owners

  • 5 of 5

This pleasant cottage was just what we needed. The cottage is situated in a rural, mountainous area with some surrounding property. There is another house about 85 feet away or so from this cottage (in the opposite direction from where one would see from the living areas) with other cottages in the farther distance, but even with leaves off the trees this time of year, there was still a satisfactory level of privacy. View-wise, there is a nearby mountain in the middle distance and lots of trees for privacy.

I brought along multiple kitchen gadgets to use in meal preparation, but except for a ceramic knife (my kitchen toy), I could have left everything else at home. The kitchen was quite well stocked, including a cheese grater and colander, which is an impressive find in a vacation cottage. Initially, I had trouble getting the dish washer to function, but a telephone call to the owners was quickly returned, and the owners did troubleshooting with me via telephone and resolved the problem. The owners did a commendable job responding so quickly and so pleasantly.

The cottage is located some distance from restaurants and supermarkets, but supermarkets and multiple decent restaurants are available within a pleasant 20-25 minute drive. A restaurant that I'd enjoyed previously in the nearby Linville Falls community, Spear's, unfortunately was shut for the season. If one is unfamiliar with the area, it may be helpful to know that Linville and Linville Falls are two separate communities some miles apart.

Both downtown Asheville and the Biltmore House are only an hour and 20 minute drive away. Both Boone and Blowing Rock are about 45 minutes drive time from the cottage, so if one is looking to visit multiple locations in the northern NC mountains, this is an excellent central location for a home base. I'd recommend visiting the Linville Falls Winery, a 15 minute drive away. The Blue Ridge Parkway is only a few miles from the cottage. Linville Gorge, and breathtaking Wiseman's View (four-wheel or all-wheel drive recommended) are nearby. If one enjoys hiking, the cottage is near Hawksbill Mountain with its stunning 360 degree view for those who reach its top. The more well-known Table Rock is a few miles farther. Both mountains overlook the Linville Gorge.

An absolutely positive experience. We hated to leave. I'd like to come back to this property someday.
