Overview

About the property

Authentic 1800's Log Cabin located 5 miles from Downtown Hendersonville

The Homestead Cabin's main living area is an original 200 year old cabin. One of the oldest structures in the county. Over the years additions were made and modern conveniences were added. The historic log cabin now has 3 bedrooms, including a sleeping loft and 3 full baths. There is also a full eat-in kitchen in addition to the formal dining room which is in the historic part of the cabin. Relax in the hot tub and stay connected with wireless internet and Uverse TV. There is a large family room on the left end. This is all part of this one unit. It is a large room with plenty of room for games or a great way to separate the adults from the children.

If you're looking for an authentic rustic log cabin, this is it. There is something special about walking in the front door to the aroma of a wood burning fire. Sit in the historic living room next to the beautiful stone fireplace that climbs to the top of the cathedral ceiling of this cozy room.

The cabin is centrally located in an area convenient to Hendersonville and Asheville NC. It is easily accessible to Hwy 25 (less than 1/2 mile) just off of a main road but hidden away in the woods. The authenticity of the cabin gives it a unique feeling and aroma of years past. Although it has additions for more modern facilities, it holds true to the 'cabin in the woods' feeling. This is not a newly constructed log cabin. It is a true 1800's log cabin with additions. Therefore, things are not perfect. The floors may creak and aren't level in places, and there are little quirks but it all gives way to the 'warm & cozy with plenty of room' that makes the cabin unique and authentic. You will get the feel of what it was like to live in a cabin in the 1800's, but have the comforts of this century. If you are looking for 'abundantly fancy with frills', this is not it. But, if it is relaxation and comfort with rustic thrown in that is convenient to most everything the area has to offer, I would love to have you as my guest.You'll love its original quirkyness and unique passages from room to room. Other guest continue to use the term 'cozy, with lots of room'.

Nestled among 80 foot tall hardwoods but only 5 miles from Main Street Hendersonville, 7 miles from the Asheville Airport, and 30 minutes from downtown Asheville.

Experience a taste of the Blue Ridge Mountains and Appalachia from the 1800's with modern conveniences. The 2 white squirrels nesting in the woods around the cabin show their presence daily.

Check in is 3:30 PM or after. If no one is checking out the same day you are checking in, I can work with you for an earlier check in time. Check out is no later than 11:00 AM

About Rebecca Pittman

Welcome to Hendersonville! I am a native who grew up in the neighborhood and still live in the neighborhood. I love meeting my guest and making recommendations to meet your needs. I love working with land and selling land! I am a NC licensed realtor although they are inactive at this time. My full time position is working for one of the nations largest utility companies as an Research Specialist. I collect green depression glass (some call it Vaseline glass) and usually have a few pieces in the cabin for my guest to enjoy. I enjoy classic cars and going to car and tractor shows around the area. In spring, summer & fall there is always a car show somewhere close on Friday or Saturday night.

I love to cook for my family and also can (preserve) fruit & vegetables.

Rebecca Pittman purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Rebecca Pittman chose Smoky Mountains

The cabin and the property around it were previously owned by my mom & dad during the 1970's. For various reasons it was sold several times, the cabin was added on to and took a different direction for the highest and best use. The previous owners set the property up as a vacation rental. When they listed it for sale in the spring of 2014, I realized it was my opportunity to put it back into the family. I am loving having the cabin in close proximity to my house. When it is not being rented I will occasionally go to the cabin with a cup of coffee, build a fire, sit on the sofa in the quiet and enjoy a good book. Total relaxation! I love the cabin and all of it's little quirks and hope that you will too.

warm and welcoming

  • 4 of 5

There was plenty of space and very easy to find. It was closing to all the places we wanted to go for the weekend (Chimney Rock, Hendersonville, wineries, and Lake Laura). The place was kept very clean and the owner is very friendly.

Tons of room and just what we needed :)

  • 5 of 5

This is a quirky little cabin where no room is on the same level as another -- I can't imagine how many add-ons there have been since the 1800s, when the main cabin was actually built. We were there for a weekend with a 4 yr old, and it was absolutely perfect :) A silly basketball arcade game was the highlight of each night for my grandson. I loved using a clawfoot tub/shower for the first time. The window unit air conditioners worked great, and kept us cool. The cabin may be old, but the mattresses on the beds certainly weren't! We all slept wonderfully! I really enjoyed that the cabin was so close to Hendersonville, and that it was surrounded by trees, but still has houses within hollaring distance on each side. Our whole stay was a real treat. This isn't your average place to stay, but it's clean as a whistle and we loved every minute of it!

LOVE THIS CABIN!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this authentic 1800s cabin for a weekend girls' getaway and it was more than we could have asked for. The beds were very comfortable and the cabin was fully furnished with everything we needed. The water pressure in the showers was incredible and we never ran out of hot water. We loved the game room and the hot tub. Becky, the owner, was most gracious and we loved meeting her and learning the history of the cabin. The cabin is located close to downtown Hendersonville but it is secluded among huge trees, down a gravel drive, and far enough off the main road to give the feeling of isolation. It rained while we were there and hearing the rain on the tin roof was so relaxing! We will definitely be coming back! Thank you Becky for such a wonderful, special weekend!

Wonderful Space, Inside & Out

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great stay at the Homestead Cabin. The space inside was great, shown just like the pictures. The experience staying in such an old cabin was cool. Even the outdoor space was great. It felt very secluded and private, even though there are nearby neighbors. We enjoyed the fire pit and the hot tub.

We felt like we were living history and the size and many places to sleep and bathrooms worked out.

  • 5 of 5

It was a very quaint rustic little place which made you feel like you were out in the woods when you were a short distance from many different places and attractions. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the hot tub however it was too rainy to have a bonfire and after exploring the area we were a bit too exhausted at night and just enjoyed the comfortable quaint little TV room. Thanks Rebecca for opening up your families place.

Rustic, charming, quaint cabin

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking for modern, up-to-date, sleek accommodations, this isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking for rustic, charming and cozy, then this is the place to stay. We arrived on Friday afternoon in cold and rainy weather. It rained on the tin roof all night and it was wonderful - the king size bed was very comfortable. The house was warm and cozy with no drafts. The clawfoot tub in the master bath is a treat! The only suggestions I have would be to add a curtain to the front door (there are neighbors but not too close) and a privacy screen next to the hot tub (again, there are neighbors). The cabin was full of history and charm and we definitely enjoyed our stay.

Hendersonville has it all! Theaters, restaurants, outdoor events, Beer Capital of the South (Sierra Nevada, Oscar Blues) with many microbreweries, Wineries, trout fishing, biking, all located in the back yard of the Great Smoky Mountains. There is now tubing in the French Broad River and zip lines in Asheville and over a gorge in Green River. But the biggest attraction is Biltmore House and Gardens. George Vanderbilt certainly knew how to live. Stand out on the back deck and imagine owning all the land you can see! Next, the outdoor enthusiast love Dupont State Forest. Its an easy 20-30 minute drive with spectacular waterfalls and hiking trails. The Last of the Mohicans was partially filmed there as well as one of the Hunger Game series. It is truly a treasure. My personal favorite drive is to go one exit up on I 26 to the Airport Exit (also where Sierra Nevada is located) turn left onto Hwy 280 go about 15-20 miles toward Brevard. After you go up the mountain and back down (watch the speed limit) turn to the right onto Hwy 276 at the Pizza Hut. Stop for an ice cream cone at the entrance to the National Forest. This road will take you to Looking Glass Falls, Looking Glass Trail, The Cradle of Forestry (the first forestry school in the country; thank you George Vanderbilt), and the Pink Beds. When you reach the top of the mountain, you can take the scenic route to Waynesville or, my preference is to take a right towards Asheville onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is a leisurely drive and a MUST STOP at Pisgah Inn for a meal in their fabulous restaurant overlooking the mountains. After a fabulous (and inexpensive) meal continue to Hwy 191 where you can exit if you prefer. You might enjoy some shopping at the Outlet Mall if you turn to the left, If you turn to the right it will take you along the French Broad River and eventually make the loop back to Hwy 280. Take a couple of hours to enjoy the mountain views. I am a native of Henderson County and will be more than happy to help you plan your itinerary while you are here.

I look forward to working with you.
