We have always been mountain and outdoor lovers with family activities including hiking, camping and boating. We were drawn to Hot Springs for the peaceful surroundings and wonderful town.

Melanie Prater purchased this cabin in 1991

Our family purchased this property as a second home, magical getaway in beautiful Hot Springs, NC. We loved the area so much we now call Hot Springs home. We now offer this beautifuly restored 1922 Arts & Crafts Chestnut Log cabin as a vacation rental for your special home away from home.

We fell in love with The Chestnut Log Cabin as it was an original 1922 Arts & Crafts home with a special feeling. Bonuses for us is the cabin is directly on the Appalachian Trail and walking distance to town with a wonderful rocking chair front porch. New! Secured wi-fi!

Like stepping back in time!

Quaint cabin with hot tub out back. Felt like we were in the middle of the woods but were actually on the road/trail 5 minutes from town. The cabin has wonderful antique light fixtures and features unique to the era it was built. The owners are super!! brought an extra key when I locked myself out and also accommodated some last minute changes to our reservation with no problem and a great attitude. Book this cabin, you'll love 'stepping back in time'!!

Beautiful old house in walking distance from downtown Hot Springs!

This cool house was used for 7 women to spend a weekend in Hot Springs. There was room for all of us to sleep, and despite the "bed" in the living room being a futon, it was very comfortable for two! However, with that many people using the bathroom at all hours, it was difficult to sleep in the living room. Also, the bathroom door lock didn't work to keep the door shut, so privacy was a tiny issue for some. The hot tub was great for 4 people at a time, but after a couple hours, it cooled off and didn't warm up the rest of the night, even with the lid closed after each use. The privacy around the hot tub in the back yard is great and the driveway easily held three cars. During the night, something on the outside of the house was banging against the wall, but I didn't look for a culprit. The front screen door needs a latch to keep it from opening and closing in the breeze, but the front porch is lovely and was used to practice banjo on! Kitchen had almost everything we needed to make a big dinner huge brunch - just lacked a big pot, but we made it work. All in all, we had a great time and took advantage of being so close to dinner and stores. I would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in Hot Springs.

My dad, brother and I stayed for a long weekend at the cottage and loved the place! The owners keep it clean and well maintained. I can be a bit high maintenance leading up to my trips and I was very pleased with how my questions were answered quickly and politely. I would highly recommend this place based on amenities, proximity to town, great owners and a beautiful area overall.

Family Get Together

First want to say that we had a wonderful weekend with family in this home. The front porch was wonderful and the town quaint. We loved the closeness to town and hiking trails. However, the house needs a deep cleaning and some basic upkeep. Also with a newborn baby and a family member with MS we really would've appreciated knowing that there was no air conditioning.
Melanie was sweet and the weekend was special, but I do feel that some improvements should be made. We didn't get what we expected.
Owner's Response: So glad the Trusty family enjoyed your mountain getaway at Chestnut Log Cabin. I am also glad you found one of the cabin's best feature, the rocking chair front porch. I am sorry that we were not able to switch you to another property with ac as we were fully booked. Our features are stated on our vrbo listing and Chestnut Log Cabin is not misrepresented as offering ac. As a 93 year old true log home the walls are 12" thick and act as insulation holding in the cool night air when you close the windows and doors by 10AM. I encourage all future guests to tell me what features are most important to them to help best match property to guests. Please let future property owners know of your special needs prior to booking. I know most of the property owners and we all only want your mountain getaway experience to be the best it can be and everything you expected.

Great Place to Relax!

Just got back from another super visit to Hot Springs and Chestnut Log Cabin. I would love to stay here year round! It is an idyllic place to relax, unwind, and enjoy the view. Sitting on the front porch reading and sipping tea or coffee is my idea of happiness. A walk to nearby downtown, playing in the river, eating at the local diner…it’s all wonderful!

The cabin owners, Melanie and Don, make sure we have everything we need. They provide the extra touches to make the visit even more enjoyable! I have been making the yearly trek to Chestnut for several years now and wouldn't miss it for the world.
I highly recommend a stay at Chestnut.
