We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was just what we needed after a few stressful months of opening a restaurant in Atlanta(Bell Street Burritos). We absolutely love the views and surroundings. Our kids (9 and 6) enjoyed exploring and playing outside. We were fortunate in our timing- the leaves are beautiful. We made s'mores by the fire outside and loved warming by the wood-burning stove. We hope to return in another season so the kids can play in the creek and we can appreciate a different view.
Felt welcome from the very first. Friendly booking process, close by support from house mgmt. They called to make sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend dinner at the Mountain Magnolia Inn in Hot Springs--the food is absolutely divine! Had a flock of 16 wild Turkeys visit the yard next to the cabin every morning. Don't miss shopping in nearby Downtown Waynesville, very relaxing and a little eclectic. If you are looking for a cozy relaxing place to call home while exploring the beautiful mountains of Western NC you can't do better than Rebekah's Place.
As a first timer to this area I really did not know what to expect. I was more than pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the cabin. The views were soothing and the inside of the cabin was beautiful and clean. We wanted peaceful and serene and thats exactly what we got!! We were able to go to the Waynesville (35min) 4th of July parade and experience small town America. It was so wonderful, the people are truly one of a kind. Waynesville has everything you need during a stay in these parts of North Carolina. All of the amenities in the cabin worked perfectly. The Wi-Fi was there for a little work when needed and the grill came in handy on the 4th of July. Kim (agent) was very helpful in many ways during our stay. The only thing I would change would be to stay longer!!
My husband and I lead a very hectic life. The last time we got away for a vacation was over 3 years ago. We decided, spur of the moment, to finally stop and "smell some roses"...and WOW...we did!! Although in November, there were no roses blooming to actually smell....everything else about the location made up for it. The sound of the bubbling brook way down in front...the smell of the grass and trees...the pasture with the cows way across the road. We felt like we had stepped back in time. The house is absolutely amazing. Huge upstairs with 2 bedrooms and a large loft area, 3 full baths (including walk in his and hers showers with slate floors in the downstairs bath)..gas fireplace in the Livingroom, and wood burning fireplace in the adjoining den (separated by french doors). Completely modern kitchen and fully furnished with every kitchen appliance, dishes, cookware, etc. Our only disappointment is we couldn't stay longer!! Hiking, hot-tubbing at the Hot Springs Resort, a day visit to Asheville...all squeezed in 3 1/2 short days. Absolutely PERFECT!!
We recently stayed at Rebekah's cabin and the accomodations were beautiful, clean and luxurious. The cabin has a huge kitchen and large great room perfect for family gatherings. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also very roomy. I loved the huge stone shower in the downstairs bathroom. The view of the mountains from the front porch is breathtaking. Max Patch is only a 30 minutes drive from the cabin where we enjoyed magnificent views and hiking. A very cute country store close by in case you forget something at home. We highly recommend Rebekah's cabin for a relaxing vacation and good time with friends and family.
Some of us were missing the camping activities of hiking, and so, not but twenty-five minutes drive from the rental cabin is ‘Max Patch’, a famous local ‘bald’ with many hiking trails to its top and in the surrounding forests. After a short, but steadily rising, hike from the parking lot, some of us set down our camping chairs in the grass and enjoyed the magnificent 360 degree view which included the mountain campsite on the Blue Ridge Parkway where we were going to camp that weekend. After returning from the Max Patch afternoon hike (making it back to the parking lot just as it started to rain), we headed back to the cabin and dinner (and the short thunderstorm). We broke up into group activities, some taking pictures on the large grass lawn surrounded by forests on two sides (and a spring coming down the mountainside and joining a creek that fronts the property and follows the main road, as well as feeding a sizable and picturesque fishing pond) while others played a game of croquet (mountain-version on a gently rolling lawn.
With a bathroom for each of the bedrooms, there was never a line at the bathrooms (unlike the campground bathrooms) and the view from the bathroom windows provided such a contrast to the typical windowless bathrooms of many rentals. With all the owner-provided bathroom and kitchen supplies, many of the supplies we had packed for the camping trip were unused and now still available for the next camping trip.
After a wonderful weekend with such close friends I can hardly describe it as a back-up plan to camping. It is truly a first-rate weekend vacation spot standing on its own merits providing all the comforts of home or hotel as well as the camping atmosphere, such as the campfires (the two fireplaces), the hiking (Max Patch and along the Laurel River in Hot Springs, nine miles away), and of course the tremendous vistas of the beautiful mountains of western NC from every cabin window and every porch and deck.
My wife and I have stayed in numerous rental cabins over the years, all in the mountains, some famous places, some not discovered but soon-to-be-famous when discovered. It has been said before that the wise save the best of anything for last and in this case that is so true. The last cabin was by far the best yet.
We all look forward to many more visits to Rebekah’s Cabin, my wife and I alone and as a group with our life-long friends. Luckily (pun intended), the best of both worlds exists at Rebekah’s Cabin!
After dinner we retired to the living room to watch a favorite DVD on the new and very large flat-screen TV that was wall-mounted above the largest of two fireplaces. Sitting on two sofas and two armchairs, everyone could see the movie with ease.
In the evenings, some of us would play board games (provided by the owners) at the large dining room table. There was also a game table upstairs on the left-side overlooking the living room. I keep describing the ‘rooms’ when actually the downstairs consists of a truly ‘Great Room’ (with the largest of the two fireplaces) with the dining room and kitchen as extensions of the ‘great room’. There is a large bathroom downstairs (with a two-person granite shower and a free-standing tub) and a laundry room with full size washer and dryer and large wash-tub style sink. The laundry room has its own door that can be closed to keep in the ‘laundry’ noise, a foyer with the stairs to the second floor, and an exit outdoors to the side deck. Also downstairs is another living room with the second fireplace and a sleeping sofa where one couple slept. That room had double French doors closing it off from the great room, a second door exiting outside to the front porch ( a nice place for late-night star-gazing before bed or for an early morning time of reading or visiting), and a third door exiting into the foyer with the stairs to the second floor and a semi-private hall leading to the downstairs bathroom (eliminating the requirement of walking through the great room filled with late-night TV watchers in your pajamas).
“Cabin is also somewhat a misnomer when describing this rental. While technically correct, it is really one original cabin (which is the second living room with the second fireplace that also functions as the third bedroom) that has been added on to (on two sides and then a second floor over it all). I think of it more as a truly magnificent mountain home with original and humble cabin roots.
Rebekah's Cabin is in a beautiful and peaceful setting by a rushing whitewater trout creek. However, it is only 25-45 minutes to a number of great mountain towns. 25 minutes to Hot Springs, 35 minutes to Wayenesville and MaggieValley and just 45 minutes to Asheville. There are so many activities such as fishing, hiking, whitewater rafting, horseback riding and in winter there is skiing. For day trips you have the Biltmore Estate just 45 minutes away and the trendy town of Asheville with its many gallaries and shops. For hikers it is only 14 miles by car to the trailhead for Max Patch, a local mountain bald, which provides a spectacular panoramic view of the mountains of western NC and eastern TN and easy access to the Appalachian Trail. The hike from the parking lot to the top of the bald is less than 1/2 mile.
