I am a retired Art Professor and my wife, Liz, is a jewelry artist. We moved here from Harbor Island South Carolina about 10 years ago. I have digital prints at the Asheville Gallery of Art , Burr Studio in Waynesville and Miya gallery in Weaverville, I am also an adjunct instructor at AB Tech Community College. Liz has her lampwork beads and jewelry at the Iron Horse in Hot Springs and the Burr Studio. We are currently sharing our home with three cats and a golden retriever puppy called Madison.
Bill and Liz purchased this cabin in 2010
This cabin is about a quarter mile from our home. Since we have lived here for almost ten years it seemed natural to share this location with others. It is really a great place with a rushing creek, some cows, turkeys and deer as well as steep mountains all around. It is close to the town of Hot Springs and a comfortable drive to Asheville, Waynesville and Marshall. It is so remote and quiet compared to the activity of the city.
I stayed here from July 6-10, 2016 while attending the Wild Goose Festival in Hot Springs. The cabin was EXACTLY as advertised - clean, roomy, peaceful, quiet, in a beautiful setting. I was traveling solo, and I was more than 500 miles from home. So, it was great knowing that Bill and Liz were right up the lane. Bill welcomed me soon after my arrival and was immediately available to take care of a small issue that arose with the water pump. Best of all for me - all of the staples in the kitchen that saved me from having to buy every little thing while there. I brought my own meal food, but things like olive oil and dish detergent were all on hand. Thanks for a great retreat! (Oh, and one of the hiking guides on the bookshelf was a life saver when I got a little off track during my hike of the Max Patch Loop - I was sooo glad it was there I took it with me!).
We arrived at the height of summer's beauty and were all delighted with this cabin. The very well-kept grounds have mossy boulders to sit on, trees to climb, a great firepit, a babbling creek, plenty of soft clovergrass in both shade and sun, berry bushes to pick, both a sunny deck and a shady screened porch, wildflowers all around, picturesque old buildings for photos, a pasture across the road, a shady clearing next to the creek with chairs and a hammock, and birdsong fills the air. Woodland creatures roam nearby if you're watchful for them. As darkness falls, hundreds of fireflies rise up and put on a show that doesn't stop, along with the stars. We happened to see the solstice full moon rise up over the mountains, it lit up the fields while the fireflies twinkled everywhere. Magical! - Within 10 or 20 minutes drive of this cabin are several access points to the Appalachian Trail itself or access to local trails that adjoin the AT. Our cabin owners provide a notebook filled with info on all these. One of our favorite visits of ANY vacation was our drive to Max Patch Bald, accessed by a few local roads and a gravel drive. This tree-less mountaintop, the “bald,” gives stunning views of the mountains of Tennessee to the west, the Smokies to the southwest, the North Carolina mountains to the east and north, and the forests of Pisgah and Cherokee all around. 15 minutes from the cabin is the town of Hot Springs, where we took a wonderful day trip with the Hot Springs Rafting Co., enjoyed delicious ice cream at Artisun, and dined well at the Smoky Mountain Diner. 30 minutes away we visited French Broad Rafting & Ziplines for a day of great fun. We made smores every night at our firepit, which was well-stocked with firewood. We do allow that the small AC unit was not up to my husband's standards - he likes icy temps - so that accounts for the 4 stars instead of five. The afternoon heat was strong, but there were fans in every room. The furniture & beds were comfy, there was plenty of storage room for luggage and clothes, and the kitchen, bathrooms & laundry had all we needed. The owner was friendly & attentive to our needs at all times, and made sure we had what we needed. I would go back tomorrow if I could. Our summer visit was great, & we discussed coming in the autumn sometime to see the area's fall color - it must be magnificent!!!
My husband and I stayed for a weekend and had a wonderful time. It was the perfect place for the quiet and relaxing weekend we needed. We enjoyed listening to the creek and having a fire in the fire pit. The cabin was cozy and Bill gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. We look forward to coming back again. I have already recommended this cabin to some friends of ours.
There is no place like home but this cabin easily became our home away from home. It was furnished and stocked above and beyond, and the amenities(creek, fire pit, wrap around porch, screened in porch, etc.) were exceptional. Our hosts were very gracious and informed us that if we needed anything to let them know. This beautiful cabin and out trip was exactly what the doctor ordered, we could not have asked for more.
Thank you for letting us enjoy your cabin and property!

Bill was there to welcome us there about 5 minutes after we arrived. Answer all of our questions. We stayed there because we were picking up a friend who was ending his hike on the AT in Hot Springs. There are trouts in the stream flowing out front, my friend caught 4 just using a "handling!" If you are looking for a excellent place to stay, I would highly recommend this property, thanks Bill and Liz
We had a great time! Cabin has everything you need. Close to AT for some interesting and challenging (three older guys averaged 8 miles a day) hiking to, through and from Hot Springs. Hosts Bill and Liz could not have been any nicer. Great get away! Thanks. George, Jim and Jim
