Overview

Hot Springs Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

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 for 4, a satellite TV, A/C in the living room, ceiling fans in the kitchen, bedroom and porch 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'RE PET-FRIENDLY!

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.

GREENBUILT!

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.

About Mary Pangle

Mary and Ken Pangle were born and raised in Hot Springs, NC and are active members of their local church. As owners of Pangle’s Construction, LLC, Mary and Ken are involved in road and bridge construction, site development and property management, as well as the River Lodge Log Cabin riverfront rentals. The Pangles operate a sawmill across from their home on Meadow Fork Rd., where they produce custom lumber, including the materials used in building their two riverfront log cabins — The Rock and The Rose.

While Ken’s out on the job, Mary juggles the joys of motherhood and caring for their home with the various office duties of the construction and cabin rental businesses — answering the phones, doing the bookkeeping, reservations, and managing the website. In addition, Mary handles the cabin housekeeping, so she still enjoys spending time on the family farm.

Discover the beauty of Hot Springs — take a relaxing vacation at the River Lodge Log Cabins. As lifetime residents, Mary and Ken know firsthand what a great place Madison County is to work and play, and they look forward to sharing it with you.

Mary Pangle purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Mary Pangle chose Hot Springs

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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,

Great cabin, beautiful views, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (with our small dogs) stayed in the cabin for three nights. We were totally happy and will make plans in the future to stay again. The cabin is in a great location, with a beautiful river view, on a huge piece of property which offers privacy as well as room to roam and really enjoy nature. Our first night, we were fortunate to see a large deer in the front yard. The cabin has a ramp in the back which makes access very easy, nice level parking, a deck across the front with a hot tub, a warm gas fireplace in the living room, ceiling fans throughout, comfortable furnishings, and pretty decor. It was also really nice to be only a couple of miles from the town itself and several hiking trails.

Great quiet off-grid getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took a much needed off-grid getaway, and what a perfect place to stay. Not having wifi and very limited cell signal was the best, so easy to decompress. We love hiking and camping so Hot Springs was a cool little town, seeing all the AT hikers coming thru town on their travels was interesting. Enjoyed a few day hikes around the area, as well as an enjoyable romantic getaway. Will definitely plan future trips, looking forward to a fall trip for leaf color changing/quiet getaway, since we are less than 2hr drive away. Little cabin was just so comfortable and homey feeling, my favorite was sitting on the porch watching the occasional train pass by across the river and listening to the birds. Good quiet place for our dog too, she loved laying on the porch in the sunshine.

Loved the quiet paint rock area on the river

  • 4 of 5

We have often gone to Hot Springs and have enjoyed all the Inns, Bed and Breakfast spots and even a campground, but this spot which was dog friendly was really a perfect spot. It is close to hot springs 3 miles away and on the french broad and I love the river road it sits on. That road was great to mountain bike on and we biked to Paint Rock Rock and hiked some with our yorkie, and one day biked in to town to meet a friend. You can bike a longer route thru paintrock and end up over by Houston vAlley Last day we drove to houston valley area and climbed up to see Meadow Creek Firetower. We enjoyed grilling out at this cabin and the hot tub was clean and nice and hot. We will come back

Our new vacation destination!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a week last month and we had a great time. I was a little nervous at first about having limited phone service and no internet, but all that was forgotten when we arrived. The owners were so very accommodating to the requests I made and went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. This cabin is only about 30 minutes from home for us but we might have been 10 hours away. The views are wonderful, the hot tub was great. There were a couple of light bulbs out on the property, but instead of throwing a fit like it would seem some have done on this site we simply picked up a pack of bulbs at the store while we were there anyway and changed the bulbs, no big deal. The fireplace was great, I couldn't believe how well and quick it heated up the cabin. It was the best little vacation we had in a long time. We had a massage and hot springs dip and just lounged around the rest of the time with no need or want for internet or phone service...just enjoying each others company. I told my wife forget the beach, we are coming back here to this cabin next time! We have traveled all over the world and don't forget we live in the mountains too, but there is just something special about this place! Thanks again! I will be back soon!

Owner's Response: I am glad you had a great time. I will tell the cleaners to keep a better check on the light bulbs. We do strive for your vacation to be a good one. Thanks.

The Rock was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great cozy getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Waterfowl abound -- Canada geese, great blue herons, and all sorts of ducks can be seen year-round.
