Overview

About the property

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, 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, 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, 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 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 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!

Great cabin, good location, and with the waterfall- it all made for a wonderful environment.

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was well kept and clean. We were not aware that cell service was not available at the cabin. Furniture was serviceable and the beds were not very comfortable- but it is a cabin and not the Omni hotel! Need a new coffee

pot.

Owner's Response: We are happy that this guest enjoyed their visit. The Cabin has a landline that is available to all guests for phone use as we know that in the mountains, cell phone service from all carriers is not guaranteed. A new coffee pot has been installed; thank you for your observation!

Tranquil Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this cabin. Perfectly relaxing and the kids loved playing in the creek and yard. House had everything we needed for a 5 night stay. Easy location to Asheville and surrounding areas. Would stay again in a second.

Perfect little cabin for our family's weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, clean, scenic with a well equipped kitchen. Gated deck was a plus since we brought our dogs. We also enjoyed the hot tub and the background sound of the waterfall. Location is perfect for visiting Warren Wilson College and is also a close drive to Asheville and Black Mountain.

Peaceful serenity

  • 4 of 5

Our family of four truly enjoyed the peaceful serenity of Brett's Falling Waters Cabin. The weather went from bitingly cold to rain to typical March winds and cool temperatures in less than three days, however the cabin was always toasty, the waterfall consistently rushing and the hot tub forever inviting! Location is great for exploring Black Mountain and Asheville, both hiking and shopping the local artisans. Our family actually has 7, but the 4 that were available for this get-away fit perfectly in the quaint 2 bedroom cabin. Kitchen well-stocked, cabin clean and neat, and both the coldest and hottest water I've ever experienced. Highly recommend!
