About the property

3BR,2BA River and Creek front Chalet near Waynesville and the Blue Ridge Parkway

Mill Run Chalet is located on a private unique family farm featuring both the Pigeon River and McClure Creek - secluded with wilderness behind - yet low enough off of Rt. 215 for very easy year round access. The sound of the creek's tumbling water alone at night in all of the bedrooms is enough to soothe the soul ! The chalet has a wonderful large outside deck for dining while listening to the creek, and taking in the fabulous mountain air and scenery.


Walkers or hikers may be interested to know that easy and pleasant walks abound without having to get into your car. Heading up the unpaved country road along McClure Creek will take you past rolling pastures and creek side homes - some local families and other's summer cottages. Continue to climb the ridge to the left each time the road or trail forks, and you will wind up high above Lake Logan featuring several trails, including the primary one to the left along the top of the ridge ending at a wooden gazebo built in the early 1930's.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is just 10 miles up the road with beautiful waterfalls and scenery along the way.

Beautiful Downtown Waynesville is a scenic 15 minute drive. Asheville and Biltmore Estate an easy 30 minutes.

Mill Run Chalet is located at the foot of Cold Mountain and just outside of the Pisgah National Forest.

The downstairs master bedroom has a queen bed and bathroom with walk-in shower. Upstairs has a full/double bed, two twins, and a bathroom with tub/shower combination.

3 BR (1 Queen, 1 Full, 2 Twins), 2 Bath, Fully Equipped Kitchen, Dishwasher, Electric Heat, Air Conditioning , Ceiling Fans, Washer/Dryer, DirectTV Satellite, Flat Screen TV, Wireless Internet Access, Charcoal Grill, Outdoor Campfire Area.

The property's name, Mill Run, comes from the early electricity-generating water wheel which stood on the creek just above the ford, supplying local power.

The farm bell at the foot of the deck stairs comes from early days in the family's central Florida citrus groves.

The Mill Stone is from an old grain mill in the local area.

The locomotive bell on the low driveway stone wall was atop an early Southern Railroad engine.

The house's interior wormy chestnut was from the original mountain summer house dating from the early 20th century which stood on the same spot.

The log cabins on the property were reconstructed here, the fireplace cabin from the old Sunburst Ranch Little East Fork in 1954, and the sleeping cabin from Hungry Creek off Rt 276 in 1963. The hand-hewed and notched poplar logs themselves date from the early 19th century. If the cabin is unoccupied by family during your stay, feel free to use the porch swing, especially to hear the rain on its tin roof !

Mill Run is a gem in these beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina !

Perfect Christmas Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mill Run is on the most beautiful property with a gorgeous creek running through it. The house itself is the kind of house that you feel immediately at home within, and was completely equipped with everything that we needed to cook a delicious Christmas dinner. I stayed at the property with my husband, sister, brother-in-law, and our dogs, and we all had an amazing time. It is only a short drive into downtown Waynesville, which as wonderful restaurants and shopping, and it is also not far from Asheville, which is one of our favorite cities. Our dogs absolutely loved it! I think they are still upset to be home in balmy, flat Florida. We are already planning our next trip. It is soul-soothing, relaxing, and invigorating. The perfect escape!

Wonderful property

  • 4 of 5

We only stayed a few days--wish we could have stayed longer. The house is off the road enough to cut out noise and the creek and waterfall sounds were very soothing. The house was very nice, with chestnut (?) panelling around the stone fireplace. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was adequate. The deck faces east, which would be good in the summer. There is a house next door that may be too close for complete privacy. The old cabin on the property is quite impressive. There is a creek along the property that appeared to have a few good swimming holes, though no sandy beaches. The road leads up to the parkway and takes about 30-40 minutes. I would definitely want to stay at his house again.

Lots of land!

  • 4 of 5

The outside property was beautiful! So much open space, a beautiful river and creek, bridge, deck, and firepit. If you are looking for a great outdoor vacation, this is a good place. Lots of exterior lighting to find your way outside at night too.

The inside of the house was clean and organized. The upstairs bathroom had a light that did not work well and it was so dark that we couldn't use it.

The house has a lot of antiques. Not many modern appliances or furnishings. I would have preferred king beds to full sized beds.

Christina was great with communication! She confirmed our vacation request within the hour and even provided places to see, visit and eat.

Beautiful but a few drawbacks...

  • 3 of 5

The setting is just as described. Beautiful, quiet and in the mountains. If you take the road that joins the driveway (Lake Logan Road), there is a lake and lovely waterfall just a few miles down the road. The house was not just as described in the information, says air conditioned. That is not completely true. Only the main floor (one bedroom, one bath, small kitchen/den combo) was air conditioned with wall mounted units (no central air or heat). There is NO air conditioning upstairs in the other bedrooms. Only a few fans and open windows. The other couple staying upstairs was miserable with heat and humidity. It finally cooled down each night around 3am. Also, there is no cell service at all in the area. The only way to communicate from the house is internet or the land line (take a long distance phone card) or be ready to drive about 5 miles to a convenience store for cell service. This was not unusual, since you are in the mountains. The washer had a note on it and did not work well. There is also only well water so you cannot wash clothes and take a shower. Instructions state to take showers far apart, and you have to in order to secure any hot water. It was the right size for two couples or one couple with kids...not for larger groups as the kitchen and den together are very small with only one couch and a few dining chairs. The deck was large and nice. You could hear the water in the creek on the deck which was nice.

Great Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The property is absolutely beautiful, and the chalet is charming and cozy. Great location for fishing and just a short ride into downtown Waynesville where there are shops and great restaurants. Would definitely stay at the chalet again.
