If you have been looking for the perfect log cabin rental in the Hot Springs and Asheville area, YOU HAVE FOUND IT!!! Our mountain getaway is surrounded by the Pisgah and Cherokee National Forests. The French Broad River flows just below the small bluff upon which we perch overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, and you have private access to the river! (Paint Rock Cabin does NOT have an open view to the river. You can see the river in places, especially during Winter months, but we have chosen to keep hidden from the River Road traffic). We are a 6 mile, scenic, flat, straight drive along the river to the town of Hot Springs. (3 of the 6 miles along River Rd. are gravel). The drive to Asheville is an easy, 45 minutes of beautiful mountain farm land scenery. This is not a sterile vacation rental; this log cabin is filled with unique finishing touches designed to give you a true North Carolina mountain getaway experience.
Enjoy a sunny deck or a screened porch with fans as you relax in the privacy Paint Rock Cabin offers. Linens and kitchenware are provided, and well-behaved pets are welcome to enjoy the mountains. The master bedroom offers a Queen sized bed and a Jacuzzi Tub, while the downstairs room offers two daybeds with trundles that can be configured in multiple ways, including 4 twins or two kings or the kid favorite, Giant Super Bed. Terraced garden beds are landscaped with different flowers blooming throughout the growing season. A fire pit is located in the woods, and a hammock always begs for a breezy nap.
Our private access to the river includes 5 acres of shoreland where you can peacefully enjoy our calm French Broad river pool. This is the perfect location to bring your fishing rod and picnic, build a fire, and enjoy a slower pace everybody deserves. You can also easily launch a river vessel here to enjoy the casual flow of the river. Kayaks, rafts, tubes, and canoes all work well in the French Broad and make for perfect afternoon fun.
Paint Rock Cabin is THE place to enjoy the North Carolina Blue Ridge mountains. Pull out your calendar and find the time to book a truly unique and relaxing vacation cabin experience.
ADVENTURE DISCLAIMER- *****PLEASE NOTE*****: The French Broad River has flooded about 6 times in the last two years (2013 was a record flood year for this area/ NOT normal), and when it floods, River Road floods. Of course we have no control over this happening. Usually, guests can exit one of 2 back ways into Tennessee which adds an additional 45 minutes to the trip back to Asheville; however, if the river is exceptionally high, you will be flooded in both ways. Good news is the river recedes quickly, but this could mean an extra one or more unexpected days if you are already there, or it could mean you not being able to get to the cabin for check-in. We, of course, would be in touch with river gauges to notify you, but we just need to know our guests have a sense of adventure when they book our cabin! If this sounds like a nightmare to you, you probably should book something in town. We keep extra gallons of water at the cabin, wifi has never gone out during flooding, and there's a woodstove with firewood provided should it happen during the Winter along with a storm that knocks out power too! (Yes, it has happened!) We will help you rebook closer to town and apply your Paint Rock Cabin money towards a comparable rental or give you credit to come stay with us another time should flooding affect your arrival. Normal cancellation policies will apply if the road is not flooded and you simply decide not to come to Hot Springs.

Bryan & GeGe and Ava love the great outdoors and places that are not too 'developed'. Great locals here in Hot Springs and not a single red light in town.
GeGe Sinclair purchased this cabin in 2001
Awesome little town with natural hot springs, Appalachian Trail, French Broad River and convenient to Asheville.
Privacy, private river access, unlimited hiking trails just behind the cabin, dogs love it... Cabin full of personal touches- warm & inviting! No sterile rental cabin here!
We had a really great time and enjoyed your cabin. It was well stocked with all the things you needed to enjoy your stay. First night, we stayed in, cooked on the grill, played board games and watched movies. This was a much needed getaway. The cabin is far enough away from town, but close enough if you need anything. We also hiked to Lovers Leap and drove up to Max Patch. Max Patch was the best 360 degree view I have seen in awhile/ I wish we knew about the 5 mile gravel drive up, but it was well worth it. We ate at Iron Horse Station and one of the other Taverns in town- both great. Hot Springs is a cool little town. Overall, great stay."
My friend and I both own log cabins on the shore of Lake Michigan, but we wanted to experience the AT and mountains, so after searching VRBO, we bet on Paint Rock Cabin... If you are looking for a quiet, private retreat with rustic elegance, then Paint Rock Cabin is for you! The place was extremely clean and comfortable with lots of special details. GeGe was very accommodating and provided helpful information and quick, easy communications. This is a great escape to a secluded, beautiful world! I ran along the river, we day-hiked, fished, relaxed and enjoyed... FYI; the kitchen offers ample (quality) pots/dishes/glassware, etc. Hope to return!
Paint rock cabin was everything we wanted, and more! The cabin is adorable and very neat and clean. There were so many amenities provided, that it made for a really relaxing stay. The location was perfect, off the beaten track, but close enough to run to town if needed. Beautiful views and walking trails right off of the property. I would recommend this rental to everyone! The owners were so wonderful to work with too...overall, a super stay at paint rock cabin! Oh, and the bed I slept in was the most comfortable ever!!
I live only about 40 miles away but chose this cabin as a place to celebrate my birthday weekend with friends. Everyone was very impressed with how beautiful and quiet this place is. We had a nice view of the river and the amazing stars at night, an outside fire pit, and everything we needed inside the cabin. And we were only a few miles away from the Hot Springs tubs and spa. It was a fabulous place to share a fun time with friends.
I had such a lovely time hiking, cooking and reading in this lovely little secluded spot. Next time I'm booking a whole week!
We so enjoyed this cabin. We'd never been to Hot Springs before and the property and surrounding area is absolutely gorgeous! The cabin was so warm and inviting and had such fun, personal touches. We hiked and played in the creeks with our little ones, made S'mores around the campfire and just relaxed. The decor is great, we loved the eclectic furniture, the hammock and the easy river access. We will definitely be back! Thank you for making the cabin so fabulous!
My husband and I and our two dogs enjoyed this lovely cabin in its private setting. The furnishings were charming and comfortable. We especially enjoyed our campfires and the quiet wooded setting. We also enjoyed being so close to the national forest.
Hiking on AT which runs directly through town of Hot Springs, mineral bath soak at Hot Springs Spa, located in pristine Paint Rock Corridor offering swimming holes, fishing pond, stocked trout fishing, unlimited hiking in Cherokee National Forest.
WHERE ARE WE IN RELATION TO DOWNTOWN HOT SPRINGS? We are on the 'Marshall/Weaverville' side of the Hot Springs bridge- turn AT THE FRENCH BROAD RIVER BRIDGE onto RIVER ROAD and find us 6 miles downriver.
Downtown Hot Springs to Paint Rock Cabin is 6 miles downriver and will take you 10 minutes to drive. The drive is 3 miles of pavement and 3 miles of gravel through the protected bio-diverse section of River Rd. This is a flat, straight (a few slight curves) and scenic drive that follows the French Broad River downriver into TN. You will see our cabin sign on the right side of River Rd at the 6-mile point. Our shared river-access land is 1/4 mile beyond our driveway at the red park-like gate marked River Road Retreat Homeowners Association (on the left side of River Road). You are free to walk in or drive your car in with our gate access code and utilize the pavilion, fire circle, and outhouse there.
