  • Enjoyed our stay here! Thank you!

    "My husband and I stayed here from 10/23 to 10/30. The fall colors were late this year due to unseasonably warm weather and this worked out for us as there were some pretty colors to be had this week, especially on the parkway! We enjoyed the location of this home as it is not far from grocery stores and it's easy to access Asheville. Property was very quiet in a quiet neighborhood and home was clean. The driveway is a little bit steep but we made it up just fine without 4WD. You just have to use caution turning around and backing out as there is a sharp drop near where you park. The balcony is very nice and you can see the mountains. Suzanne had great communication with us through all steps of the booking process and for every question we had, very responsive and helpful. We used the downstairs bedroom though the upstairs bed was larger and looked very comfy. The downstairs bed was firm enough and the only critique is that it is awfully loud when you get into it, turn over in the night or get up to use the restroom in the middle of the night. I'm really reaching here to come up with a critique of this place. There is a home directly behind the house that is not pictured but it sits higher up the mountain and the windows of the home would look naturally over the roof of this cabin. When you put the blinds down in the bedroom, they cannot see in. We enjoy privacy and the home behind us did not disturb us in any way. The good news is that Suzy's cabin is completely geared toward the mountain view so you're not looking at neighbors when in the living spaces. We would stay here again. It was comfortable for us and we felt safe in the area, which is just a quiet neighborhood. When coming to the Asheville area, I highly recommend eating at the quirky Stony Knob Cafe in Weaverville (a few minutes from Asheville) and if you are lucky enough to score reservations or are willing to show up at 5 to 5:30 to snap up bar seating: the Admiral. The deep dish pizza, duck confit eggrolls on wasabi mashed potatoes and beef carpaccio are great at Stoney Knob. The Admiral is very popular so you need to reserve far in advance or plan to eat early. The menu rotates but we loved the pork belly steam buns, steak tartare, vegetable dumplings in harissa sauce, veal sweetbreads, octopus and a few others. Rocky's Hot Chicken by this cabin is great too. DON'T MISS Old Europe Bakery in Ashveille or the decadent dark chocolate liquid truffle at French Broad chocolate lounge."

  • A little piece of heaven on earth

    "Where to start? Gene & Diane are the sweetest hosts and their Little Rustic Cabin is a perfect getaway in the mountains! While it is not isolated like some cabins, we never felt intruded upon. Quite the opposite. We enjoyed our stay and felt perfectly comfortable and as if we had the place to ourselves! Every detail in the cabin showed Gene & Diane's thoughtfulness and desire to make their guests comfortable. They provided directions that brought us directly to the doorstep. The cabin was spotless and had everything we needed, from coffee maker to blankets to towels. The wildfires were in full swing unfortunately during our stay, but they offered to accommodate us in the future if we decided we needed to leave because of the fires. Despite the smoke, we hiked and explored several towns. Bryson City is only a 30-minute drive away, and Franklin (the nearest town) is a quaint NC mountain town with plenty to offer! If you are looking for a fun, relaxing mountain getaway, you won't go wrong staying in any of the cabins at Orchard Hill! We can't wait to go back!"

  • Beautiful property in beautiful location!

    "We had a fabulous weekend! Everything we needed or could have wanted was provided. The home is well stocked, with some lovely extra touches. We have never seen a cleaner vacation rental. Clearly the owners take pride in what they offer. We would love to return at some point! Thank you!"

  • What a wonderful experience!

    "First, the owner is a true gem. The property is spectacular! We sat on the porch and watched the moon come up every night--and we didn't want to leave. The neighborhood is great for walking. The Elf School is huge--and ever so comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. The bedrooms are very nice and comfortable. We have stayed there two years in a row--and loved every single minute of it. It is simply a fantastic place to stay!"
