Swannanoa Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4 Adults in 2 Beds

Listen to the babbling brook and waterfall just steps away from this cheerful little cabin in the woods. Relax with a morning coffee on the porch, or enjoy a soothing soak in the hot tub after a day of adventure in the village of Black Mountain or downtown Asheville.

We can accommodate up to 4 guests. Pet fees for all bookings are $75.00 for one or two pets.

Nestled in a corner of 15 wooded acres that may be hiked, Falling Waters has a peaceful, back to nature appeal. The cabin is perfect for honeymooners, couples, or small families who want to enjoy a little solitude and comfort in a private mountain setting, but not too far from restaurants and the nightlife of downtown Asheville. Two bedrooms and one bath, modern eat-in Kitchen. A cozy firebox lends ambiance and warmth to the Living Room with cable TV and free internet access. The driveway is gravel, level, and accessible by any vehicle. Brett's Falling Waters is also Pet Friendly!

If you have any questions about the Cabin and its amenities, please contact us at 703.475.8385. If we miss your call, leave a message and we will call you back!

Answers to Frequent Questions: The cabin is screened from the nearest neighbor and roadway by trees and hilly terrain. The Hot Tub is available year round and is located on the front porch. The driveway is gravel and level, so a regular car may be driven right up to the cabin. No steps Kitchen door entry. The front porch (3 steps) is gated. The family owned property is comprised of fifteen acres of woods, with a trail to the top of the property for exercising your pet and enjoying a different view of the surroundings.

Shopping and Restaurants: The nearest grocery store is Ingles Market on Route 70, 4 miles from the cabin. They have a full service pharmacy, movie rentals, extended shopping hours, self-checkout, and accept major credit cards. Black Mountain (10 miles) has many wonderful restaurants; we can personally recommend the Black Mountain Bistro, My Father's Pizza, Veranda Cafe and Las Quezelas. For those who like atmosphere with their coffee, visit the Dripolator Coffeehouse on State Street.

About Bob and Lorna

We live in Northern Virginia and have managed this cozy little cabin on behalf of Lorna's father, Brett, since 2006. Before it became a vacation rental, we enjoyed many visits to the cabin with our children as did Lorna's sisters and their families.

Bob and Lorna purchased this cabin in 1990

Why Bob and Lorna chose Asheville Area

The cabin was purchased to accommodate family and other out of town visitors and it's renovation was one of Lorna's father's many projects. We now rent it through Homeaway and VRBO so that others can enjoy Swannanoa, Black Mountain and Asheville as much as he did.

What makes this cabin unique

Built in 1932, the Cabin was renovated and modernized in 1992, and a complete overhaul of the exterior and interior was done again in 2010. Changes and updates to the furnishings are made on an ongoing basis to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of our guests. The Cabin is a perfect place for a weekend getaway. The waterfall can be viewed from the deck and hot tub, and the general tone of the property is quiet, relaxing comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the perfect getaway. Everything was clean and working well. TV and DVD player was a bonus. Having VS on cable so I could watch the Tour de France was the cherry on top. I could not ask for anything more!

Lovely little cabin

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place to stay. The waterfalls are great, late at night, sitting on the covered porch. Just far enough out of town to really enjoy the clear moon lit nights. We got to meet the caretakers and they are a wonderful couple whom make sure that everything is going well. Great couples get away with a level entrance into the back of the house. Fairly recent remodel had all very good appliances and the kitchen was well stocked. We will return in the spring next year. Gene and sandy

Nice cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Cute little cabin - great "base camp" for exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway and Black Mountains. The little waterfall on property is beautiful and the sound is lovely - the nice, clean hot tub was perfect for relaxing after a long hike!

Let me start off with how precious this little cabin is! Tucked away with some gorgeous views! We rented this cute cabin for a weekend couples birthday trip. We had a blast and enjoyed the cabin to it's fullest. Our favorite part was walking out on the deck with a beautiful back noise coming from the little waterfall in the front of the house. The cabin is also a conveniently 20-25min drive to Asheville. I highly recommend this cabin to small families and couples who are looking for a fantastic get away from busy every day life! We will be returning again ❤

I totally understood the complaints about the traffic - it was distracting - esp if you wanted to use the tub - you really felt on display. But it was one of the best times I have had and would do again.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that our cabin did not meet your expectations. The cabin is more than 100 feet from the road, screened by trees and the stream. The main road is a dead end, so the traffic is only that of the residents farther up the hill. We apologize for their need to travel to and fro. Nonetheless, we are glad that you felt it was one of the best times that you had; we want you to enjoy your vacation!

Cozy cabin within nature's beauty!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Brett's Waterfall cabin! Very secluded feel and the waterfalls and wooded property made us feel like we were the only people around. We took our 8 month old beagle who had so much fun "exploring" without going too far from the cabin. The cabin was extremely clean and well stocked as far as kitchen supplies, bath linens, etc. The only thing we needed to bring was our own food and drinks. The hot tub was clean and soothing. The ONLY suggestion I would have would be to get at least one recliner in the living room. That would be the only improvement I would make. The bedrooms had ample room and comfortable beds with nice linens. Very close to area attractions, restaurants, hiking, etc. Loved it!!
