About the property

1 bedroom, 1 bath room with stone fireplace & modern kitchen

The Hobbit House was created to provide everything you need for the perfect stay in the spectacular mountains of western North Carolina. Privacy yet close to everything? Check. Spa bathroom? Check. The most comfortable bed this side of the Mississippi? Check. Sophisticated yet relaxed? Check.

Welcome to your cozy mountain retreat. Just a two minute drive( if that), or an easy walk to the Cashiers crossroads, the Hobbit House is nestled within an acre of mountain laurel, holly and tall airy, sophisticated Cashiers cabin with in-town seclusion.

The Hobbit House has been completely redone with new stainless kitchen appliances and new bathroom...and redecorated into a luxurious, warm and peaceful getaway for two - or three, if you have a dog. Relax in the woods - yet have all the luxuries of home: HD Roku streaming of TV cable channels with all the possible sports channels plus Netflix, Amazon, etc...(Not major networks just yet) brand new washer and dryer, phone and Wi-Fi. A new, petite but modern kitchen and flagstone floored bath with a fabulous new subway-tiled walk-in shower...both on the first floor.. are just off the open living area with a wood burning, stone fireplace (firewood provided).

On cooler days, there is warm air flowing at the flick of a switch plus the fireplace, and an upstairs super efficient standing floor air conditioning unit that keeps the cottage cool on the rare, warmer than normal day. Usually the stainless steel ceiling fans do the trick!

Follow the mountain laurel railing upstairs to the light filled loft bedroom, where a wonderful night's sleep awaits under the rafters. The gel-topped, memory foam, king size bed will soothe you to sleep in the cool mountain air after a day of hiking, waterfalls or shopping.

The Hobbit House is a cabin with a difference. The dark furniture, granny bedspreads, and someone else’s knick-knacks and odd pieces went somewhere else. Everything in The Hobbit House has been chosen specifically for this cottage. While poplar bark siding protects the exterior, inside you’ll find a light, modern, designer-mountain feel with a whitewashed shiplap interior, artisan details, the latest energy-efficient appliances and cool art. For your skin, there are also new, top quality Matteo linen sheets and fluffy won't find another place like it. except our big sister house. You'll find a link below to the Mountain House if you're looking for something larger (6B-4-1/2B) but with the same easy style.

In the morning, have your coffee on the Sunday porch swing next to the mountain laurel rails that line the deck. Listen to the silence of the rain forest, broken only by the Carolina birds singing their tunes. Promise yourself that today, you WILL make time for reading. Ok, and maybe a nap on that same plush swing-bed. Later, enjoy a glass of wine in the same spot or take it with you walking the secluded roads and trails just outside your door. Then, if you wish, cook dinner in the fully-equipped kitchen or grill outside on the gas grill. Even better, slip away to one of Cashier's many wonderful restaurants that are just minutes away. Welcome to a slice of heaven!

About Donna H Paulson

I first traveled to the Highlands/Cashiers Plateau as host of 'Great Country Inns' for The Learning Channel, and after traveling all over the world for work...this was the place that stopped me in my tracks. The weather in the summer is so incredible for those of us used to scorching 90+ temps...balmy 75 degree days, but so cool at night you can light a fire. Also lovely in the fall and spring....cozy in the was where we always wanted to own a home. Now we do and love sharing it with guests. We hope you plan a visit to enjoy the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Warning: you may never want to leave!

Why Donna H Paulson chose Cashiers

Who doesn't love the idea of a cozy little bark covered cottage in the woods? This hideaway is just perfect for two people, snuggled into the mountain laurel, with walking trails right outside the door, plus restaurants, shopping and everything you need just 2 minutes away. The modern convenience is amazing, the rustic charm undeniable.

What makes this cabin unique

You're super close to Cashiers...seriously, the two of you could walk to the Village Green. Yet you're in the middle of a beautiful green forest of old rhododendrons and pine, right outside your door. You can hike, bike, shop, golf, eat out, fly fish...or just relax. It's all there!

Romantic and Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

The Hobbit house is absolutely the sweetest and cutest cabin in Cashiers! No detail has been overlooked and it is so cleverly decorated. If it isn’t already there - you don’t need it! Tucked under the laurels, you really feel like you are a Hobbit and far away from the rest of the world. But, less than five minutes away, you’ll find the crossroads, shops and restaurants of Cashiers. Not sure where my favorite spot in the house was - on the porch swing, on the sofa in front of the fireplace or the dreamy king bed in the loft!

Without a doubt, if you want the perfect getaway in the mountains of North Carolina, the Hobbit House is it.

Perfect Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cabin for a week at Christmas and couldn’t have been more pleased. It’s beautifully decorated, convenient to shops/restaurants, quiet and cozy. Loved the bedroom loft overlooking the living room with vaulted/beamed ceilings. We would definitely rent this lovely cabin again.

The Hobbit House Cashiers, NC

  • 5 of 5

This property is not only conveniently located in Cashiers, but is warm, welcoming, comfortable, and attractively decorated. The front porch was a great place for morning coffee and an evening glass of wine. It was a wonderful place to share Thanksgiving with family and I was happy I could bring the "family pet." Thanks for all the help securing this location!

Beautiful, Warm, and Welcoming home! Will be returning!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the cabin to celebrate our anniversary and could not have been any more pleased! The Hobbit House is beautifully peaceful. We spent every morning on the porch and every night with a fire going in the fireplace. We have not been more relaxed in ages. I have visited Cashiers many times in the past and this is my favorite cabin! We visit here annually and hope to make this our new stay. Thank you so much for everything and we can't wait to return!
