Overview

Burnsville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Newer smoke-free cabin sits under huge oak tree and across from trout stream in Pisgah National Forest. Located at the base of Mt. Mitchell and walking distance to the Mt. Mitchell Crest trailhead. Hike the trails of the forest and be back home in your cabin the same day without having to drive!

Fish or go tubing in the South Toe River or play a round of golf at the Mt. Mitchell Country Club. Located ten minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, 30 minutes to historic downtown Burnsville, one hour to Asheville or Boone.

Our family has been coming to Western North Carolina for years searching for the perfect family vacation spot. We believe we have found it in Serendipity.

It is the perfect combination, isolated, but not too far from civilization. You can arrive, with a stop at the supermarket on the way in, and have enough to do without having to use your car. Serendipity also makes the perfect home base for day trips to all North Carolina and Tennessee has to offer. Free Wifi and pet friendly. Call or e-mail for more information.

  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Burnsville

We wanted to break Out of our normal vacation routine! We were tired of overpaying for cramped hotel rooms and paying exorbitant entertainment costs. We couldn't even bring our dog with us without staying at the worst hotels. We chose North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains because it provides a variety of free entertainment that gets our family's adrenaline pumping.

What makes this cabin unique

When we stay at our cabin, we have the great outdoors right on your doorstep. We pack the bicycles, throw the kayak or tubes on top of the car, and get ready for a vacation of outdoor adventure that the kids (and dog) love! We can drive to Asheville, Water rafting, horseback riding, Gem Mining, Apple and Blueberry picking, etc.

When we visit our cabin home, we are coming to beautiful Yancey County, the land of Mount Mitchell and the Pisgah National Forest. Our cabin is located in an alpine valley. The elevation of roughly 3,000 feet makes for a cooler summer, but the flatness of the terrain makes it easier to reach in the winter. You do not need an all-terrain vehicle to reach us. Hiker's love the fact they can do some very difficult trails and then relax in comfort when they are done.

Exactly as described! Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We looked all over the internet for a cabin that suited our family. We finally came across this one and knew right away that it was meant for us! The little youtube video on VBRO and the excellent rating definitely helped us make our decision. No pet fee and no cleaning fee made the partial week trip affordable. I had just finished active treatment for breast cancer and wanted a place where we could regroup as a family. The house was just so perfect and has now become a special memory for all of us. Life was simple there...no appointments, no schedules, no bad news! We have all said several times "When can we go back?" We went to two waterfalls close to the house and the kids loved playing in the creek. The only thing that was a surprise was that although town was 8 miles away, it took 40 minutes to get there with all the winding mountain roads. Thank you for sharing your house with us!

I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been to this cabin three times and plan to return again and again! I have rented many cabins all over NC and this is by far the best! It is so peaceful and relaxing. If I could move into this cabin, I would today! Thanks for the wonderful customer service!

The perfect place to relax after far too many miles on the trail!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I drove to Mt Mitchell to celebrate my 31st birthday by conquering the mountain. We knew we would be tired so instead of camping, we decided to cabin it. We loved our stay. It was clean, spacious enough for us, and the yard was so precious. We loved sipping on wine and swinging while listening to the creek. After a long day on the trails, Serendipity was just what we needed. We can't wait to come back! Even better, we parked on Thursday and didn't move the car until Sunday!

Good Times!!!!

  • 5 of 5

First let me tell you, I’m very picky about where I stay, the owners, and the home I choose to rent. I enjoy zero to no issues at all. Serendipity and its owners Ken and Kim delivered on all of it. The home is tucked away in the mountains with tons of trails around it. I emailed Ken and Kim several times prior to our arrival and they responded with lightning speed. The cabin was clean, and stocked with plenty of supplies. If you need to go out, there is a Wal-Mart, Food Lion, and a few restaurants within 30-40 minutes.

In walking distance from the cabin are several trails rated from easy-difficult. There are several waterfalls in the area which are in walking distance, the kids loved them. We climbed Mt. Mitchell (which was the most difficult) and it was gorgeous. If you choose to do this hike, leave early and plan on it taking anywhere from 4-10 hours to summit and return to the cabin. The rest of the trails were easy and we took our 6 year old and 1 ½ year old with us the majority of the time, with no issues. Also we had a mini-van and had no issues with driving so no 4x4 needed.

The area surrounding the cabin is so peaceful. The sound of the river/stream next to the cabin is just priceless. If you’re someone seeking adventure this cabin is for you. If you just want to relax this place is for you as well. I just can’t say enough good things about it.

Thank you Ken and Kim,

Casey

This is a wonderful place for peace and quiet. I especially liked the fact that it was located near a trout stream and that there aren't a lot of tourist attractions nearby. I come from Florida wher noisy tourists are an issue. A quiet place to reflect and enjoy the outdoors.

Great Location For Hiking

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little cabin. Plenty of room and being pet friendly is a huge plus for me since I like to bring my dog along on hiking trips. Being from south Louisiana, I was hoping to see snow and there was quite a bit on the ground when I arrived. This cabin is a perfect place for anyone that wants to be away from the city and do some sight seeing or hiking. One thing to be aware of is that the parkway seems to stay closed in the winter. Even after the snow was mostly melted the parkway stayed closed. I will almost certainly be returning here in the future.
