No need for a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get up our mountain, our roads make it simple. Easy access and paved roads are important when driving through the mountains, and we have that here! The cabin is the only home at the end of the road, affording you privacy and unobstructed views of the sunset. A full wraparound deck with custom log Adirondack chairs encourage you to "sit and stay a while". The front door opens to the southwestern view of the mountains. When you walk into the cabin, a two story vaulted ceiling greets you with a gas fireplace and cozy furnishings. The open floor plan invites you to relax and take in the breathtaking scenery with floor-to-ceiling windows. All the furniture, mattresses, TV's and linens are brand new, including the hot tub! The kitchen has all the equipment for cooking. A large, full bathroom is situated right off the kitchen next to the Queen bedroom and a spacious walk in closet. There is high-speed dual bandwidth WiFi throughout the home.


The loft area and the master bedroom are upstairs. The loft provides a massive sectional couch and over-sized sitting chair. Enjoy watching 40+ cable channels on the large HD TV with Chromecast and a Blue ray DVD player. Or head through the sliding glass door onto the covered second-story deck- it makes you feel like you're in a tree house. The master bedroom boasts a King size memory foam mattress, with a large custom window that looks into the loft area and through to the mountains beyond. The room has another HD TV with cable and Chromecast for easy streaming of your favorites shows and music. The master bathroom offers a large spa tub with jets, a separate stand up shower, dual sinks, and a large walk in closet.


Downstairs in the newly finished third bedroom are two XL twin beds and a full bathroom. The room includes an HD TV with cable and Chromecast.


While the comfort and beauty of the home will make you want to stay inside, the outdoors will beckon you with vast mountain views off of the entire wrap-around deck. Enjoy cooking on the charcoal grill, or take a dip in the 4 person hot tub.

The cabin is situated between Hendersonville and Brevard, perfectly located for outdoor adventures in the surrounding areas. Head up to DuPont Forest, a 25 minute drive away, for a hike at the Triple Falls trail to see some beautiful waterfalls. Pisgah National Forest is nearby, and downtown Asheville is a 45 minute drive. Lake Lure and Chimney Rock are a 50 minute drive.


There's a reason that the Asheville area is regularly rated one of the top travel destinations in the country. It offers everything from a quality food scene to breathtaking scenery and the down-home feel of country life. Experience the Biltmore Estate and Winery, or get the flavor of downtown Asheville's food and bar scene. Hendersonville and Asheville are the perfect place to vacation with mountain trails and waterfall hikes, local flavor and countless memory-making opportunities.

About Kelly Horwood

Kelly is a western North Carolina native- born and raised in the blue ridge mountains. Her family has lived on the same land for 6 generations as apple growers. Her husband Aaron currently serves in the U.S. Army, so they move around a lot! Together they have two dogs, a dachshund and a husky mix. They love to travel, but the mountains are always calling them home.

Kelly Horwood purchased this cabin in 2016

Why Kelly Horwood chose Rambling Ridge

Kelly's uncle built this cabin himself in 2009. Kelly and Aaron decided to join the rest of her family by putting down roots in these mountains. They love everything about this area. Their first morning in the cabin they were greeted by a deer right outside the kitchen window! The sunsets off the front porch make you stop and simply watch in awe at the beauty around you.

This is home.

What makes this cabin unique

The views, the beauty, the quiet! Everything about this place urges you to slow down and rest. Kelly wanted to make sure that the house encouraged comfort and ease of mind. Every little touch throughout the house is to make you feel like you've escaped into the luxury of the mountains.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed your house so incredibly much! It is so beautiful and comfortable- I found myself not able to stay awake more than an hour on the sofa upstairs! :) This was the perfect weekend getaway for us. We enjoyed everything about your house from the fireplace, to the great kitchen, to the relaxing hot tub! Thank you!! We will be returning soon!

Mountain Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a long holiday weekend in the amazing Luxury Cabin with our best friends. The cabin in perched atop a scenic ridge and offers spectacular views for miles. The pictures of the property and especially the interior are beautiful, but still don't match the beauty that you will experience during your stay. From the fashionably rustic and comfortable decor to the super soft towels and linens, and well stocked kitchen, every detail of this cabin is amazing. And the hot tub!!! My wife and I have a nice late model hot tub at our home, but this hot tub is more like a small pool, it was the perfect way to relax!!! I would certainly recommend that anyone traveling to the Hendersonville / Asheville area stay in this fantastic mountain oasis! Just be careful you may not want to leave!

Girls' Weekend 2018

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous weekend!! This cabin provided spectacular views all around. The giant woodpecker provided us entertainment on the back deck. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and eating all together at the large table. The cabin was the perfect size for sleeping 6 adults. The owner was very responsive and accommodating to all of our requests and needs. Highly recommend!!!

Great home, excellent attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home in April 2018 while on a mountain biking trip in Dupont and Pisgah. We had a great stay and Kelly was great with a quick response to all of our questions and very understanding and compassionate when we had a family emergency right before our trip. Would recommend to anyone looking for a home within 30 min of everything Dupont, Pisgah, and Hendersonville have to offer.

We had a mother/daughter weekend with a bride to be and her mom and it was a perfect place for us. Easy to get to downtown for great shopping and wonderful dining, but by far the house was where we enjoyed our time. We relaxed in the hot tub, enjoyed the fireplace, and had a great time socializing on the porch overlooking the beautiful mountain scenery. We will definitely be going back--but next time, for a longer stay! This home is comfy, cozy, and has everything you need for a retreat away from all the business. Highly recommend!!

--thanks again, Melanie Moon

Gorgeous Cabin!!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is lovely, luxurious and cozy. The views are amazing from the wrap around deck. The master bed and bath have modern updates. Hot tub was a huge hit for my entire group. The remote controlled fireplace kept us warm as we played games and shared laughs. Would definitely recommend this for a getaway; the weekend wasn't long enough 😉
