About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4 Guests 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. Nightly rate is $160.00 per night. Pet fees for all bookings are $100.00 for one or two pets. Cleaning Fee is $100.00. A deposit of $200.00 is requested to book your reservation, and the balance is due 30 days prior to your arrival.

Nestled in a corner of 15 wooded acres, 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 WIFI. The driveway is gravel, level, and accessible by any vehicle. Brett's Falling Waters Cabin is also pet friendly!

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. One step Kitchen door entry. The front porch (3 steps) is gated. The family owned property is comprised of fifteen acres of woods, with a rough 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. Nearby restaurants include Okie Dokies Smokehouse, Athens Pizza and a Dunkin' Donuts. Black Mountain (10 miles) has many wonderful restaurants; we can personally recommend the Black Mountain Bistro and the Dripolator Coffeehouse on State Street.

About Bob and Lorna

We live in Northern Virginia and managed this cozy little cabin since 2006, inheriting it in 2016. 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 Swannanoa

Brett's Falling Waters 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 offer it as a vacation rental through HomeAway and VRBO so that others can enjoy visiting Swannanoa, Black Mountain and Asheville and the many amenities offered.

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. Furnishings are updated 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!

A quaint, little spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on a couples weekend getaway here! We wished we could've stayed a little longer. The sound of the waterfall and view of it and the mountain out front is awesome. A nice spot to enjoy a cup of morning Joe! We got to see the Georgia Bulldogs clench an SEC Championship here!! GO DAWGS!

The location is good too. It's off the beaten path, but not too far out. We were close to hiking- About 30 mins. to the Biltmore. & Uber comes here which was great. We would recommend this place.

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this little cozy cabin. The surroundings were so pretty and the house had everything we needed. We enjoyed the hot tub and the waterfall! It was pretty easy to get to Asheville and anywhere else we needed. Would love to come back one day!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

When we first pulled on to Sparkill Drive I was a little concerned by the river that we needed to cross in order to access the property, especially because we were trailering an 800 lb motorcycle. As it turned out is was nothing but a small brook and we crossed it many times on both the bike and in the car during the next 5 days without incident. In the evening when all was quiet, the sound of that brook was music to our ears...very peaceful and calming! The property is lovely and the home was clean, well equipped and comfortable. We found great places to eat in Black Mountain and played golf one day at their municipal course which boasts a 747 yard par 6, 17th hole! We saw some live music one night at the Salvage Station in Asheville....what a great venue; and rode both directions on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We caught the leaf change at just about the perfect time and the weather was terrific during our stay. We highly recommend this property to others that want to get away from it all but still within reach of civilization. Thanks for sharing your home!

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the cabin several times. We love everything about it: the waterfall in the front yard, the coziness of the cabin, closeness to Asheville and Bkack Mountain, sense of privacy. Only regret is we don't own a cabin exactly like this one!

Perfect getaway for body and soul

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. The best part was the property...there was so much to discover for our kids and dogs alike. The Picknick table by the fire pit and playing in the stream were our favorite. And just the right distance for trips to Asheville and hiking. Very well stocked kitchen. Rest of the house is functional and clean.
