What a cute place!!! Really enjoyed my time in this cabin. It was very cozy and romantic. This was roughing it a bit since the water was pumped from jugs, an incinerator toilet and outdoor shower. The shower was a bit cold even after pumping it for a while, but that is what happens when it gets cool in October. Liz and Paul were kind enough to allow me to shower in their home since it did get chilly, but I roughed it and managed without inconveniencing them While, this all may sound negative, it truly wasn't since this was all advertised and part of the true 'one with nature' theme. There is nothing I would have changed about this trip. It was a couple steps up from camping with an AMAZING location. While it was a bit from Asheville, it was totally worth the drive for the location. Hearing the train along the french broad river did wake us up in the nights, but we actually really enjoyed that. We used the fire pit to cook our meals and made good use of the stove to keep warm. Also, there were heating pads in the bed which were lifesavers!! The touches they added to this cabin made us feel right at home. They even left our dog some treats which was so nice! We had a great time!!! Hope to see you again, maybe in summer!!
