About the property

2 BR 2 BA.Sleeps 6.Easy access, 1 level, quiet, private,lg covered rocking porch

Located just minutes from Dupont State Forest on Stone's Lake Road in Cedar Mountain, NC, we offer a new but rustic mountain getaway. The cabin is situated on a no outlet road, not in a subdivision, so it's quiet and private.

You can explore over 10,000 acres of Dupont State Forest, an international mountain biking destination, featuring 4 major waterfalls (Hunger Games was filmed here) and 82 miles of trails, either by hiking, biking or horseback riding. Mountain bikers, you can bike to trail heads from here. Close by is the wedding destination, "Pretty Place" (Symmes Chapel) at YMCA Camp Greenville, and historic Faith Memorial Chapel. Enjoy fly fishing in Dupont Forest or on the Davidson River, golfing at Sherwood Forest on a Par 3, 18 hole golf course, or exploring nearby Brevard, Pisgah National Forest (more trails and waterfalls, including famous Sliding Rock), Hendersonville, Asheville or access the Blue Ridge Parkway. Also close by is Caesar's Head State Park and Raven Cliff Falls. Consider dropping your kids at camp and enjoying relaxing here. Or choose to just escape the city life and unwind. You can listen to the songs of the woods, rock away while enjoying a cool beverage, doze in the hammock or nap in the porch swing bed on the 800 square foot wraparound covered porch. Even if rain is in the forecast, embrace it! Listening to rain on the metal roof is a calming, stress reducer! Read a book, have S'mores at the fire pit or star gaze at night. On a chilly night imagine yourself enjoying a cozy fire in the wood burning fireplace or choose to "just breathe" the clean, cool mountain air. Quaint Brevard, just 15 minutes away, offers restaurants, shops and several popular craft breweries, including Oskar Blues, Ecusta Brewery and Brevard Brewing Company. Oskar Blues REEB Ranch is 10 minutes away. Sierra Nevada Brewing company and restaurant is 40 minutes away just before the Asheville Airport. Located just 1/2 mile away is The Cedar Mountain Cafe and The Canteen Beer Garden featuring craft beer, soda & ice cream(open seasonally).

Our cabin is a one level, bright and airy, easy access bungalow featuring 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a full size kitchen including refrigerator, range, microwave, and dishwasher. The vaulted kitchen/dining/living area features 100 year old heart pine beams, a poplar & maple live edge bar top, wood burning fireplace and queen sofa sleeper. The spacious Master bedroom features a queen size bed and private bath. The second bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed and bunk beds. The second bathroom, with full size tub/shower, is located just across the hallway. The oversize mudroom has a full size washer and dryer, laundry sink, and ample space for indoor bike storage. Outside is a convenient bike wash station, a charcoal grill and fire pit with firewood provided.

Amenities include central heat and air, satellite TV with Google Chromecast, WiFi and local landline phone.

The cabin comfortably sleeps 6.

About Marcia Cleveland

We are owner operators and builder of this bungalow completed in 2016. The Stones Lake community is a special entity within Cedar Mountain and has been in the family for generations. We are year round residents of Cedar Mountain and are available to offer any assistance if needed.

Marcia Cleveland purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Marcia Cleveland chose Cedar Mountain

Stone Hinge is built on property that has been a part of our family for generations. Growing up and spending most summers in Cedar Mountain brings back only wonderful memories of communing with nature, whether by hiking or exploring the woods or swimming in the coldest water anywhere and by being away from the grind and stress of everyday living. It is our hope to share that with visitors who wish to get away and relax and rewind. Stone Hinge is located away from street lights and highway noise yet offers all of the comforts of home including central heat and air, Wi-Fi and DirectTV. It is incredibly dark at night here and you will be amazed by the number of stars visible away from city lights. There is something special and refreshing about the quietness here and listening to the songs of the woods and breathing cool, clean mountain air.

What makes this cabin unique

Stone Hinge is a one level, easy access property. The 800 square foot covered wrap around rocking porch offers an area that can be enjoyed any time of day or night to relax and visit or for the kids to play if the afternoon brings cooling showers. Dining on the porch is also pleasant treat if you need a change. There are multiple porch ceiling fans to keep you cool and comfortable as you rock and read and enjoy your favorite beverage at the end of the day. The popular fire pit is available for evening S'mores and storytelling. Firewood is provided. On chilly nights you can enjoy a cozy fire in the woodburning fireplace.

Stone Hinge is conveniently located in Cedar Mountain, Gateway to Dupont State Forest. Close enough to bike to Dupont, our bungalow is conveniently close enough to hike, bike or swim in the morning, come back for lunch and a nap and return in the afternoon for more exploring. Quaint Brevard is only 11 miles away offering unique shopping, restaurants and grocery stores.

Great place to stay near Dupont State Forest

We would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a peaceful and cozy place to stay near Dupont State Forest. The cabin has everything you need for a relaxing time. We thoroughly enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor fireplaces. The location is wonderfully close to Dupont State Forest allowing for evening strolls when the trails are less crowded. We look forward to staying here again in the future!

We had an awesome time at this property! The location is great for driving to waterfalls and other fun outdoor activities. Unlike most cabins, there was also plenty of room outside for the kids to play in the yard. Marcia even stopped by to meet us and answer any questions we had. Highly recommend!

Beautiful Mountain Cabin & Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying at Stone Hinge! The cabin is beautiful...warm, welcoming and cozy. Marcia has it stocked so you feel like you are "at home". The beds are very comfortable. The house has a great layout. We loved playing board games at night while sitting by a crackling fire. We enjoyed hiking to the falls in Dupont State Forest and shopping in Brevard. The peace and quiet of your cabin and the surrounding area was refreshing! We will definitely return to your wonderful mountain cabin!!

Most wonderful vacation we have had! The cabin was great and the hiking was great!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful trip and the cabin was impeccably stocked with everything we needed. The kids and my husband and I were very comfortable and the locals were so nice. We hiked every day and had great food at the local cafe. It was the most fun, memorable trip we have had yet. Thank you, Marcia for your hospitality and our stay!
