Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I returned last night from a 3-night stay at the cabin, and I already miss it! It has to be THE cutest place I’ve ever stayed in. Tim and I were celebrating our 33rd. wedding anniversary and he had researched the area since early December!!!! He narrowed it down to TWO places and when he showed me the pictures, there was no doubt what my choice would be!!!!



We enjoyed our trips to the Biltmore and various restaurants, but our stay at the cabin was the happiest! I really can’t adequately describe just what a wonderful time we had, and George made our feel so at home and comfortable! We look forward to returning SOON with our 16-year old daughter, Nina!!! Thank you so much for allowing us to share in this gorgeous area!!!

The perfect cozy cabin for a weekend get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We came up to the Asheville area for a weekend get-away with our teenage daughter. The cabin was just the right size for the three of us. Believe it or not, our teenager was able to survive without her phone (since there's no wifi or service in the area)! We attempted to put together the puzzle that was provided but ran out of time. We enjoyed mornings on the front porch and even got a visit from Rusty, the resident camp dog. We will certainly consider this rental for future vacations. Thanks!

Perfect ! We loved the seclusion and privacy.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was so unique. 200 year old appearance with all the modern day amenities.

No cell phone service or WiFi but proved to be just what we needed.

Would recommend for any couple looking for a romantic getaway.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay we hope you will visit us again soon. It is true that certain phone services do not reach our property in the mountains well, specifically AT&T. Verizon tends to work best and is what we use daily as we also live on the same family property. We do have wifi available for guests at the shared office space just a few yards away as well as an emergency guest phone for 24 hour use.

Beautiful property.

Quaint cabin in a beautiful part of NC! The best is when we met Mr. Pickery, the cabins owner. Definitely revisit.

Fantastic Clean and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 girlfriends and I stayed in the cabin for a weekend getaway and it was fantastic. The entire grounds we're great by far the best place to stay anywhere around Black Mountain. It's extremely clean and modernized even though the original logs are from 1814. The entire place is dog friendly which is fantastic. I didn't get to bring my dogs on this trip but will gladly bring them next time. The owners were very nice and the grounds were very beautiful. Going back again as soon as I have time. I would give this place a 10!

The Cabin is nestled in a grove where the historic Black Mountain College once thrived during the '40s and '50s as one of the most important educational and artistic experiments. Buckminster Fuller built the first geodesic dome here on the property and Elbert Einstein taught here. Mt. Mitchell, the highest point east of the Rockies, stands tall in the distance, mountain lakes and streams welcome you, and the beauty and spirit of this place is truly relaxing and magical. While you enjoy a feeling of being far away you have the luxury of being close to so many great experiences... Black Mountain (5 minutes), Asheville (20 min), Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, Cherokee, and outdoor adventures abound (hikes, rafting, mountain biking, climbing, picnics, etc).
