Let this mountain cabin be the launching pad for all your North Carolina mountain adventures! ‘Sawyer’s Cabin’ was custom built from wood harvested on the farm and sits on Bob Barnwell’s legendary sawmill lands. With modern updates that retain the rustic feel, this 1-bath vacation rental studio is perfect for a romantic weekend for 2. Relax in the hot tub, roast s’mores around the fire pit, toast in front of the mountain view, or head into neighboring Asheville for some cultural fun!
Studio: King Bed | Loft: Full Bed
Custom designed for efficiency and space, ‘Sawyer’s Cabin’ boasts handcrafted wood that was cut, planed, sanded, and finished for a rustic-yet-modern build. The south-facing windows let light and warmth spread inside, while the open floor plan lets conversation flow freely from room to room.
After a stop at the nearby grocery store, treat your loved one to a home-cooked meal with help of the gourmet, fully equipped kitchen - complete with a farmhouse sink, gas stove, coffee maker, and large kitchen island. Once everything’s prepped, step out to the porch where the teak dining table can be the host of all your romantic dinners.
If you’d rather dine entirely outside, throw some steaks on the grill and take in the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains as you cook. For some dessert, head down to the fire pit to roast some marshmallows as the sky alights with dazzling constellations.
Before tucking in, be sure to enjoy a late-night dip in the hot tub, soothing sore muscles. The sounds from the nearby creek are sure to lull you into a peaceful slumber afterwards, as you sink into one of the 2 plush beds.
In the morning, brew some coffee and sip it on the deck, breathing in the fresh air. If you'd rather start the day with a walk, stroll past the neighboring goats on the hill, the wild turkeys in the field, and the songbirds scouting out the nearby blueberry patch.
Enjoy access to the neighboring Cloud 9 Farm that boasts a wedding event area, seasonal blueberry picking, nature trails, a fishing pond, picnic pavilion, and other vacation rentals if you want to expand. The grounds of Cloud 9 Farm are ideal for weddings, and use 'Sawyer's Cabin' for your honeymoon
Asheville is an eclectic town with lots of pre-1930s history, cute boutiques, and tons of delicious farm-to-table restaurants. Take a stroll along downtown and pick up some coffee while listening to the talented buskers play a tune.
Just 10 minutes away, you’ll find the Biltmore Estate, a Châteauesque-style mansion built by George Washington Vanderbilt II. Take a stroll along the grounds and tour inside the 250-room mansion! It'll feel like you've stepped back in time as you experience the Gilded Age. Make sure to enjoy a tasting at the on-site winery.
Head just 10 minutes down the road to visit the Blue Ridge Parkway, ‘America's most scenic drive.' The Blue Ridge Parkway consists of 469 miles of natural beauty, including mountain views, hiking trails, and picnic sites. The dramatic fall colors are truly a sight to see!
