About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

I traveled to the mountains where the eagles made their nests. There I saw the hand of God: I saw creation at its best.......

To lighten your heart, ease your mind, relax your body, renew your spirit and heighten your sense of awareness to the peace and contentment found in the wonderful gifts of nature, there is no better place than the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains, and, as our many visitors know, COUNTRY HAVEN is where to experience it all.

This magical retreat is an authentic log cabin filled with beautiful antiques and many articles handcrafted with care by the owner adding a touch of warmth and charm to every room. For your comfort and pleasure, no detail has been overlooked. The cabin is well appointed to assure a comfortable stay. If you love peace and quiet, you will not be disappointed. This alluring cabin and our smaller cabin 'Tranquility Knoll' are situated on 1 1/2 acres of privately owned land, nestled among rolling hills with majestic mountains in the background. As you relax on the wrap-around covered porch or breakfast on the deck, you will enjoy the scenic view along with the country sounds of chickens,cows, horses and donkeys on the neighboring land. You will be pleasantly surprised when wild turkeys wander by and most amused as you watch buffalo. West Highland cows grazing in the adjacent field. Sitting quietly, you can even hear them munching on the grasses'.Evenings sit around the firepit and roast your marshmellos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow' what a great 4th July weekend. We came up here with our family and friends, and enjoyed the cabin so much. There was plenty of room for 4 adults,4 teens/preteens and infant. We cooked on the grill you provided, sat at the picnic table,played games, watched the kids run around in the yard and roll down the hill-such a lovely space. The buffalo were entertaining, the miniature donkey adorable, the views constantly changing and beautiful. The rooms were so beautifully and thoughtfully appointed, as was the amazing porch. Pillows and blankets on a porch- so luxurious. Oh-and we loved the mountain laurel railings-very cool. Thank you for a great weekend

Well equipped and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at Country Haven. The home was very clean and well equipped with anything we needed. We had 2 young children with us and they loved being able to play outside in the yard and look at the animals next door. The location was very convenient for visiting downtown Asheville. We would definitely return for another visit.

Another wonderful visit

  • 5 of 5

Country Haven has become our favorite place to stay during our many visits to Ashevile. You just can't beat the coziness of the cabin, the beautiful country setting, and the close proximity to Asheville, Hendersonville, Waynesville, Black Mountain, Weaverville, and other local towns. It's so much better to stay at Country Haven (or its neighboring cabin, Tranquility Knoll) than a dull hotel room in town.

Weekend Girls Trip

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our girls weekend! We loved the wrap around porch and blankets on the chairs outside (especially since it got SO cold while we were there). The beds were comfortable, and bathrooms well stocked with towels, etc. It was an easy 10-15 ride to downtown Asheville and the Biltmore. We would absolutely visit again.

A Little Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and four of our closet friends had the opportunity to spend the weekend at this property. We all work very hard and rarely have time to just relax. Not the case this weekend. We were all able to relax and enjoy the scenery as well as the home itself. The home was very clean and equipped with everything we needed. Sitting on the deck and taking everything in was amazing. Even the air seemed to be better. We enjoyed the huge fire pit in the evening which was really nice. We are already planning our next stay and hoping to extend it for more then a weekend. I would definitely recommend this property.

The cabin was absolutely perfect for our family trip. It had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed watching the bison grays next-door and the miniature donkeys down the road. We were just a short trip to Asheville. We will definitely be keeping this cabin in mind for future trips!

Fantastic cabin retreat near Asheville

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful cabin was the perfect place to spend a week with our family. It was extremely comfortable and had all of the amenities you would ever need for your stay. It was also a great place to access the Blue Ridge Mountains and the city life of Asheville. The owners were always available for questions and even stopped by to say hi. If we ever come back to the area, we would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
