Overview

About the property

Cozy one bedroom/one bathroom Mountain cabin on 13 acres

The mountain log cabin is a beautiful retreat. From the deep porch, you have spectacular long range mountain views and can watch the sunrise with a mug of coffee. It's in a wooded, peaceful setting surrounded by nature, yet close to nearby activities and shopping. This is a one bedroom, one bath, cozy cabin. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots/pans, dishware (etc). A fire pit and hot tub adds to the comfort of your retreat. The comfy bed has ultra-soft linens and towels, and the cabin has plush robes for your nights in front of the fire pit or after a nice soak in the hot tub. We also have Roku, antennae TV, a DVR and a radio/CD player and wireless internet for your enjoyment. Sit on your porch and listen to the sounds of nature, watch the wildlife, or see the beauty of the mountains change color throughout the day. In the evening, you will spot rabbits, turkeys and ground hogs, as well as the fireflies dancing in the grass. Enjoy the onset of dusk with a glass of wine in front of a crackling fire. Let the Dream Cabin and it's private, peaceful setting rejuvenate you.

About Judy Howell

John and Judy both worked for the US Marshals Service, and met in 2007. In 2012 they married, and enjoyed traveling to the Blue Ridge/Smoky Mountain area whenever they could. They fell in love with the Waynesville/Asheville area, and knew they had to retire there. They searched the area for property to buy, and as soon as they drove up the driveway of this one, they knew it was the one.

Judy Howell purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Judy Howell chose Waynesville

This property is so unique. It was an old farm and in the same family for a hundred years until early 2000. It's on 13 acres, surrounded by meadows and forests, with spectacular mountain views. You will feel like you are isolated in nature, but are in fact minutes away from towns, shopping and activities. It is, truly, the best of both worlds. This property has hiking trails, long range mountain views, mountain streams, and privacy.

What makes this cabin unique

From the front porch of the cabin, you can sit with a glass of wine or hot cup of cocoa, and gaze at the mist in the meadows or the spectacular views of the mountains. Listen to the sounds of nature and watch the fireflies dance in the evening. You will forget how hectic life can be when everything here is so tranquil. The cabin is cozy and comfortable; it's charm and hominess is to be enjoyed by couples, honeymooners, or folks looking to get away. The bedroom is comfy, outfitted in soft bed linens. After a day spent hiking or shopping, you will look forward to snuggling up in your nest. The living room has games and cards, but also has TV and wireless internet for times when you want to 'plug back in'. You will love staying here; it's like your home away from home. There are streams on the property, as well as an old barn. The property will delight you and renew your spirit.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We enjoyed our stay in your cabin so very much! It felt like home and we really appreciated the relaxing, welcoming atmosphere you provided for us. We loved sitting in the hot tub and gazing at the stars (something we don't get to see in Atlanta!). We actually got engaged Friday evening right on the front porch, so I know we will never forget this place! We will surely be back!"

Amazing Stay! Already recommended to a friend

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best stays ive had at a vacation rental. It comes exactly as advertised and there are plenty of personal touches added to the stay to make it even better. I was very pleased, the owners definitely take care of you and make the stay feel like a private get away. After the stay I recommended this to a friend within a few hours of leaving.

Great quiet getaway spot for New Years Eve

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in The Dream Cabin several times previous to last weekend. Previous stays were in warmer weather. Cabin was very comfortable even with the single digit weather. Judy's girls were not producing eggs which we missed. Our previous stay was over a year ago and items (make-up bag and hair straightener) we accidently left behind were still there! What a bonus that was. Highly recommend a visit to Howell's at the Moon Farm.

Cozy cabin with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay! As others mentioned, the cabin was cozy and so clean! As someone who is a bit OCD about cleanliness, I felt as comfortable here as at home! The towels were super fluffy and all the little details were wonderful. We could not have found a more perfect location for our 20th anniversary and can't wait to return!

Absolutely perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about how satisfied I was with my cabin and the property. What a perfect get away for me. The view out of this cabin is spectacular!! The owners took care of every need and knowing that they are on the property made me feel safe even though I never saw them! Wish we could have met. They really go out of their way to make you feel you have total privacy. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone!! Loved it!!!
