About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 6

Located just minutes from Dupont State Forest on quiet Stone's Lake Road in Cedar Mountain, NC, we offer a new but rustic mountain getaway. 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. Close by is the wedding destination, "Pretty Place" (Symmes Chapel) at YMCA Camp Greenville, and historic Faith Memorial Chapel. Enjoy fly fishing 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 escape the city life and unwind here by rocking while enjoying a cool beverage, dozing in the hammock or porch swing bed on the 800 square foot wraparound covered porch, reading a book, having S'mores at the fire pit or star gazing 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 and listen to the songs of the woods. Quaint Brevard, just 10 miles away, offers restaurants, shops and several craft breweries, including Oskar Blues, Ecusta Brewery and Brevard Brewing Company. Oskar Blues REEB Ranch is minutes away.

Why Marcia Cleveland chose Smoky Mountains

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.

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin for a couples weekend. It was so perfect! We were blown away by how well stocked the kitchen and bathrooms were; there was everything we needed and more! Also, it was spotless! So so so clean! Thank you to the owners of Stone Hinge for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! We had a wonderful weekend of relaxation on the beautiful wraparound porch. The guys played cornhole out on the driveway while the ladies relaxed and took in the clean Mountain air. If you're looking for a place to stay where you can unwind yet feel at home in at the same time, this is the place for you!

Peaceful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, clean cabin on quiet street near Dupont State Forest. Warm decor, comfy beds and furniture, with ample space for our family of four. We enjoyed watching the birds from the porch as we relaxed in the hammocks and rocking chairs. We felt guilty being in such a nice, cozy place while Hurricane Irma was wreaking havoc on our neighbors in Sarasota and the rest of the southeast. We will return with our mountain bikes and fishing rods under better circumstances. We highly recommend this cabin.

Cozy, updated cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

I searched and searched for the perfect mountain cabin for four guests and I'm so glad I stumbled upon this one! Marcia went above and beyond to make sure the property was ready for our arrival. The outdoor porch with rocking chairs and a hammock was our favorite part! It's beautiful, convenient to Brevard and world-class hiking, and extremely clean. You won't be disappointed!

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Stone Hinge was memorable. The cabin was far beyond out expectations, and Marcia and Scott were the best in every respect...over and above the call the duty. We loved the cabin, the area parks and waterfalls, and the hiking. We'll definitely be going back in the not too distant future. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Cedar Mountain or the Brevard area. Thanks, again.
