About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Newer smoke-free cabin sits under huge oak tree and across from trout stream in Pisgah National Forest. Located at the base of Mt. Mitchell and walking distance to the Mt. Mitchell Crest trailhead. Hike the trails of the forest and be back home in your cabin the same day without having to drive!

Fish or go tubing in the South Toe River or play a round of golf at the Mt. Mitchell Country Club. Located ten minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, 30 minutes to historic downtown Burnsville, one hour to Asheville or Boone.

Our family has been coming to Western North Carolina for years searching for the perfect family vacation spot. We believe we have found it in Serendipity.

It is the perfect combination, isolated, but not too far from civilization. You can arrive, with a stop at the supermarket on the way in, and have enough to do without having to use your car. Serendipity also makes the perfect home base for day trips to all North Carolina and Tennessee has to offer. Free Wifi and pet friendly. Call or e-mail for more information.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Blue Ridge Mountains

We wanted to break Out of our normal vacation routine! We were tired of overpaying for cramped hotel rooms and paying exorbitant entertainment costs. We couldn't even bring our dog with us without staying at the worst hotels. We chose North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains because it provides a variety of free entertainment that gets our family's adrenaline pumping.

What makes this cabin unique

When we stay at our cabin, we have the great outdoors right on your doorstep. We pack the bicycles, throw the kayak or tubes on top of the car, and get ready for a vacation of outdoor adventure that the kids (and dog) love! We can drive to Asheville, Water rafting, horseback riding, Gem Mining, Apple and Blueberry picking, etc.

When we visit our cabin home, we are coming to beautiful Yancey County, the land of Mount Mitchell and the Pisgah National Forest. Our cabin is located in an alpine valley. The elevation of roughly 3,000 feet makes for a cooler summer, but the flatness of the terrain makes it easier to reach in the winter. You do not need an all-terrain vehicle to reach us. Hiker's love the fact they can do some very difficult trails and then relax in comfort when they are done.

Great experience!

Very nice cabin. All you truly have to bring in your clothes and food. Very pretty property. Lot of books toys games and movies for the whole family. Only thing was the floor has a hump in it which made it to be super noisy.

Fall in North Carolina

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the beautiful location and large front porch for relaxing and reading. Very close to the excellent Mt Mitchell golf course. Fully furnished kitchen and everything we needed. Only drawback for us was an uncomfortable couch since it was the type which could also be made into a bed. No other relaxing place to sit inside unless using a rocking chair or kitchen chair.

Great cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this cabin & enjoyed our stay! We definitely recommend it to anyone. It was so great being able to have privacy away from everything and being able to grill out in our own backyard! Loved that it is right off the Blue Ridge Parkway & so close to a couple of waterfalls! Only wish a grocery store was closer, but that shouldn't discourage anyone from staying here. Just plan to stop at the nearest store before heading to the cabin so you'll have everything you will need. Very nice owners too, we will be back!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Serendipity four times over the past several years and we love the property. When we walked in I told my wife "this feels like home." /the property was clean and the location is excellent. Dealing with VRBO is pleasant and the owner is willing to contact if you have a question. We will be back next October to enjoy the fall leaves and cool air.

Great place !!!

  • 5 of 5

If you love to hike...this is the perfect location. Black Mountain Campground has a lot of hiking trails that kept us busy all week. The only time we drove was to go the dump & get groceries. Dogs loved the hikes too & chilling on the grass...

Cabin has a great front yard. Road is a little busy ( people going to Campgrounds ). There're other properties on each side of cabin but nobody was there the whole week we stayed there.

Had breakfasts & dinners at front porch, nice cool mornings & evenings... that's what we needed coming from hot & humid South Carolina!!

Overall South Toe is a wonderful location, owners are truly blessed to own that little place ,right there by Pisgah National Forest !! We highly recommend it to all nature/hiking lovers !!

Humming Birds to Hiking - Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Serendipity. It is a lovely cabin in a beautiful location. Do fill your gas tank and pick up your groceries, firewood, etc. before leaving the main villages behind as it's a bit of a drive back. There are so many interesting sites. You are just a few miles from an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. We enjoyed Mt. Mitchell State Park, and there are many trails to hike in the area. Loved it!
