About Joan & Tim Galvin
My wife Joan and I have several rental properties across North Carolina that we own/manage, mainly corporate short-term rentals in the RTP area. I am originally from New Orleans while my wife is from Asheville. We manage the Mountain Log Cabin for her father. This lovely home was custom built with locally milled logs and stone as a family weekend retreat, but we just don't have the time to enjoy it - so we are sharing it with visitors to the area.
Joan & Tim Galvin purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Joan & Tim Galvin chose Marshall
My wife's parents decided to build this cabin 20 years ago to enjoy the land which was most recently acquired by great-grandparents in the early 1900's. (Look for family photos and a temperance pledge in the cabin.) The land can also be traced back to the 1820's when it was originally purchased from the local Indian agent by a distant relative. Note the pre- civil war cabin on the property.
What makes this Cabin unique
This cabin is the last property at the end of a mountain cove. Follow the road alongside the cabin to walk along a creek or explore the 150 acres high above the cabin. While it feels remote, it is an easy trip to the grocery store, downtown Marshall and even Asheville for a day trip.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.

Had a great time. So cute and clean. We had a good Christmas vacation here. Wifi isn’t the best when it’s raining but it’s in the country so kinda figured. Love hearing the creek from the porch
Remote but wonderful!
We didn't expect the cabin to be so remote but we were very happy staying there! The cabin was wonderfully cosy and well kept. We spent Thanksgiving there with my brother, wife and daughter. There was room for everyone. We had to call the owner about the fireplace and it was taken care of immediately. We visited Marshall, Biltmore, Ashville, and Hendersonville. The Ingles grocery store was about 5 minutes away and it was fabulous. Really nice staff, great fried chicken and incredible salad bar.
We would love to visit again.
Loved being in the country either all the beautiful fall colors. Will come again
Fantastic in every way.
I always use vrbo when searching for a vacation rental. I especially like the fact that If not exactly what I want it comes close enough to satisfy my needs and or wants. I am a firm believer that you take your fun with you in your attitude before you begin. However we have found all of our bookings to be just what we expected. Thanks!
If you're looking for some place off the beaten path this rental is it. The cabin is comfy and cozy with everything you need for a pleasant stay. Whether I was sitting on the front porch listening to the coyotes sing or in front of the fireplace at night I felt right at home.
Take exit 19A on I-26 in North Carolina, heading toward Marshall on Hwy 25/70. Continue to Ingles grocery on the right. Be sure to pick up any supplies at Ingles. Take US 25 from Ingles toward Hot Springs for about 5 minutes until you come to a stop light at the Madison Middle School. Turn right onto upper Brush Creek. Proceed about 3/4 mile on paved road. Turn right at the first gravel road (not including driveways) to stay on Upper Brush Creek. Proceed to Laughing Frog and turn left between two barns to stay on Upper Brush Creek. The cabin is about 1/4 mile from that point.
