We have two riverfront log cabins for rent -- The Rock & The Rose. You can make easy online reservations on our new website by going to www.riverlodgelogcabins.com. Please feel free to do that NOW, for loads of full-size photos and in-depth information about all the ways you can enjoy a vacation in the riverside mountain town of Hot Springs, NC.
Nestled in a picturesque mountain valley in Western North Carolina, our hand built log cabins are located directly on the French Broad River, surrounded by the National Forest and the mountains that gave the Blue Ridge its name.
Privately situated, our two large one-bedroom log cabins have excellent views, with lots of wide open space around them. Facing the river, with meadows and mountains on all sides, the shady front porches are a favorite spot come rain or shine. The huge grassy lawn with its garden pond slopes gently down to the river’s edge, where we have a nice deck and bench for sitting and a path for strolling.
If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway you won’t find a nicer spot to settle in for a while. If an active outdoor vacation is more your style, River Lodge Log Cabins is a great place to come home to after a hard day of hiking, biking or rafting.
Our riverfront log cabins offer the perfect vacation getaway for couples of all ages, small families, and pet owners. Each cabin has a vaulted ceiling in the main room, a private queen bedroom with antique furnishings, a sleeper sofa and a bath with a shower. The large sunny kitchen includes a side-by-side refrigerator, an electric cook top, a convection oven/toaster, a microwave, and a coffee maker, and has a comfortable dining area. The covered front porch has a slatted wooden glider swing, a roomy hot tub and a gas grill. Other amenities include full linen service, a satellite TV, A/C in the living room, lots of ceiling fans — inside and out — and a gas fireplace. Each cabin accommodates up to four persons.
Our Hot Springs, NC cabin rentals are conveniently located just a short drive northwest from Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. We have safe, easy access year-round for all types of vehicles. Many guests — pets as well as people — will appreciate the large level parking areas and entry ramps. Our universal design features include wheelchair access in both the kitchen and bath.
We welcome responsible pet owners and their well-behaved companions. After all, what's a vacation without the family dog? We charge a flat $25 pet fee for each visit.
These are authentic sawn log cabins we built ourselves with local wood from our own sawmill. The logs used for the main structure are hemlock. We used tongue and groove paneling on the walls and ceilings, and the floors are a fabulous mixture of local hardwoods. The metal roof makes music out of rainstorms! You’ll enjoy unique features such as handmade wood countertops and trim you just don’t get in “factory-built” cabins, plus the satisfaction of knowing that local labor and love were part of creating our cabins for your enjoyment, here by the riverside on our grandparents’ old family farm.

We built these cabins on this piece of property that my grandparents owned. This is a way of being able to keep this property in the family and for the family to enjoy and remember the good old times. I spent a lot of time here and this place is so dear to my heart.
Stroll across the lawn to our riverside deck, looking back to enjoy the sight of the mountain rising behind your log cabin, its white rocks glowing in the sun (or the moonlight!).
Sit by the river with the light sparkling on the water as the wind rustles the leaves, watch the cows graze and drink along the opposite bank, and wave to the rafters as they come by.
As the sun fades over the river, everyone can enjoy a good meal (fresh trout, perhaps?) cooked on the gas grill and a well-deserved soak in the hot tub. Try to stay awake long enough to watch the stars come out — the Milky Way can put on a big show up here!
Enjoy a scenic drive in any direction — we are surrounded by the National Forest and its natural unspoiled beauty.
Don’t forget your camera — you might miss a once-in-a-lifetime shot! Keep a lookout for the wildlife — deer, turkeys, rabbits, raccoons, foxes, mink, groundhogs, otters, and yes, even black bears.
Bald eagles, kestrels, hawks, great blue herons, ospreys, falcons, purple martins, cedar waxwings, ravens, swallows, indigo buntings, goldfinches and an array of waterfowl can be spotted while sitting right on the front porch of your log cabin.
The large sloping lawn is a great place to enjoy the wide-open spaces — whether playing badminton, Frisbee, croquet, throwing balls for the dog, or just taking in the view to the sound of falling water beside the pond. In the evening you can sit by the fire ring, gaze at the stars or catch lightning bugs, dependent on age and inclination.
Walking out the door of your log cabin you can enjoy rafting, tubing and trout fishing, an easy stroll or bike tour down River Road, hiking or backpacking on the Appalachian Trail.
Cyclists will enjoy our two nearby mountain bike courses, or a quick run downriver to the Paint Rock Corridor (and the Tennessee state line) and back. River Road is coaster-bike friendly!
So many choices!
We enjoyed our stay at your lovely cabin. While here we saw many creatures, which thrilled our 5 year-old son. We saw many rabbits, a deer, a lizard, frogs, and even some turkeys.
On some evenings we relaxed in the hot tub, on others we chilled and watched tv after long days spent outdoors in this gorgeous area! It is so peaceful here - we loved it!
We'll definitely recommend your cabins to our friends and hope to return ourselves!
Many thanks and kind regards,
The Rock cabin in Hot Springs was the perfect getaway to celebrate our anniversary! It was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub on the front deck while gazing at the river and the stars. It was far enough out that we felt we had privacy but close enough to town to zip in for lunch and dinner. The fireplace was the perfect cozy touch. We will definitely be back with the family!
My husband and I needed to escape for a weekend and chose the Rose...PERFECT! Its very private and in front of the French Broad River (across River Road). From the porch all you see is green grass and the river. The inside is cozy and perfect for two! The fireplace keeps you warm and toasty on cold nights (which we had!) as well as the hot tub...it was secluded on the porch. The cabin was very clean and comfortable ... kitchen amply supplied with cooking needs which is nice to be able to get there and stay. From the cabin to the left on River Road is Hot Springs and to the right is Painted Rock ... great place to explore and relaz...our 4 legged child loved being able to come with us and loved the big front yard for running and playing ball...we hope to get back in spring for hiking...quite muddy or snowy everywhere we went this weekend! Thanks Mary for sharing your cabin with us!
I'm disappointed that anyone would assume that adults would pee in a bed? That's disgusting. I stripped the bed and put the linens on the ground as instructed. The hot tub had a film floating around when we got in it the first night and was slippery. I'm assuming it hasn't been cleaned a while. I put the new sponge in the kitchen, I had to go buy it as the pink and white one was disgusting. Had to run the coffee pot before using it and it had deposits in it after that. I left the cabin cleaner than I found it actually. I even scrubbed the spatula and spoon that had dried food on it even though I didn't use them.
My husband and I stayed at The Rose for a romantic weekend getaway and it was just what the doctor ordered! Being at the foot of the mountains and over looking the river was majestic. At first, we were a little concerned about there being another cabin on the property, but we had optimum privacy! The hot tub and cabin were very clean and gorgeous. We had a random snow storm come through so we weren't able to do all the hiking we wanted to. It was a wonderful weekend and so nice to be able to take out four legged furry animal with us! We can't wait to go back
The cabin was simple, nothing fancy. The hot tub never reached over 100 degrees and it was quite chilly. The hot tub was one feature that we were looking forward to after a day of skiing. The lights on the porch were burnt out so after dark you couldn't see a thing. The utensils were put in the drawer dirty, i had to wash them before using. We had to go buy an air mattress due to the couch bed being just springs. Went and bought a dish sponge and toilet paper as nothing there.
"The Rose" was the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle we are accustomed to. From the moment we saw the bench next to the river, the original farm home, and the two cabins, we felt relaxed and welcomed. "The Rose" was exactly as described, and was even more charming than the pictures. We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the river go by, as well as all the different birds, insects, animals, and other creatures. The furniture was all very comfortable, and the hot tub was great. We really appreciated having a vacation place that was so handicap friendly. We hope to return sometime, and we highly recommend your cabin for anyone looking for a clean, comfortable place close to attractions but in a quiet location.
