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 !
