About the Property

Cozy cabin with a covered porch, private master bedroom and extra beds available

Just a few minutes’ walk or drive to downtown Hot Springs and a one minute walk from the Appalachian Trail’s entry into Hot Springs, Chickadee Cabin offers the ultimate convenience while still remaining secluded and peaceful on a quiet street tucked into the woods.

Wake up to the birds singing out back and enjoy a fresh morning cup of coffee on the covered porch, or meander in to town on the Appalachian Trail for a day exploring Hot Springs’ restaurants, antiques, rafting and more. Within a few minutes’ drive of Hot Springs Spa where you can take a dip in a natural-fed hot tub, or stay home for a romantic evening complete with a two-person indoor Whirlpool jetted tub.

This is an ideal cabin for a couple wanting a mountain retreat while remaining close to all that Hot Springs has to offer. There are two single beds available in main room if the kids or your friends will be joining! Kitchenette includes under-counter refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave and a slow cooker/crock pot. In addition to the jetted tub, Chickadee has a full bathroom with a tiled shower, toilet, and sink. All linens provided.

Chickadee Cabin is one unit of a duplex, with Goldfinch Cabin being the other unit. Both rental units have private parking and entrances, and the walls between the two units are soundproofed for privacy.

We've got WiFi!

We happily accept dogs at our cabin for an additional $15/stay. Please bring only respectful, not-too-noisy, house--friendly pups!

Air Conditioning
Yes! We do have air conditioning to keep you cool on hot summer days.

Yes! Our cabin is very warm in winter months.

TWO NIGHT minimum stay for weekend nights (Friday and Saturday). ONE NIGHT minimum stay is considered for Sunday-Thursday nights.

Other Amenities

  • This cabin is one half of a duplex; this rental is for the Chickadee portion of the cabin. Each side has a completely separate entrance and parking. We call the other main section of this cabin Goldfinch, and it can be rented out in addition to Chickadee upon request. There is an interior door between the two sides that remains locked with soundproofing foam up. If both halves are rented, this door can be opened and the full cabin has the capacity to sleep 11 in beds. Perfect for a large group! Please see our Goldfinch listing (#724424) for photos and inquire for availability. Beginning in January of 2017, the interior doors connecting the two units will be removed as we remodel and upgrade our facilities. The full house may still be rented by renting both Chickadee and Goldfinch separately, but the two units cannot be connected inside. ...moreless

Hot Springs

Car: Recommended

Take an evening to enjoy the renowned HOT SPRINGS SPA AND RESORT, just a few minutes' drive from our cottages. Here you can get a professional massage or reserve one of the Resort's natural-fed hot springs tubs. Good for a romantic evening or a family/group activity, these naturally thermal waters are the perfect getaway and the reason the town is called Hot Springs!

We are just 200 ft from the APPALACHIAN TRAIL, a well-established gateway hiking path into the Smoky Mountains. Many other HIKING opportunities of all levels are all within a 15-20 minute drive, with choices expanding as you drive further. All have stunning views, birdwatching, hundreds of native plants, and many mountain streams and sometimes waterfalls and swimming holes!


Owner info

About the owner: I grew up in the much rockier Rocky Mountains of Colorado, raising goats, chickens, rabbits, horses, and a rotating selection of other farm critters with my parents and my younger sister. I moved to North Carolina in 2009 and have spent much of my time gardening, studying wild edible and medicinal plants of the Appalachian Mountains, building and remodeling, and raising and milking a few more rogue goats. I live just outside of Hot Springs on a sunny hillside with my husband Andrew and daughter Chloe. I love to welcome folk to Hot Springs and the surrounding area, so don't hesitate to ask me for hiking recommendations, the inside scoop on local swimming holes, or where to find homemade Appalachian crafts!

Why the Owner Chose Hot Springs, NC, USA:
You can't beat how close to Hot Springs this place is, while still feeling secluded! Having such easy access to the Appalachian Trail is a great benefit.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cottage-style gardens and natural wood and stone exterior of the cabin is a style I love! I hope that it makes people feel like they are in another place and time, while still providing all modern conveniences and WiFi Internet
