Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Perched deep in the woods near apple orchards, the Biltmore Estate, and Lake Lure, this sunny log cabin features 4 bedrooms (2 queen upstairs, 1 queen and 1 bunkbed set downstairs), 3 baths, upstairs and downstairs living areas with televisions, a well-stocked kitchen, and a ping-pong table in the garage. It's a great set-up for families with kids.

Enjoy the rocking chairs on the covered back deck as you look out over a wooded hill with winter views. The covered front porch supplies a picnic table and charcoal grill for outdoor eating. For the adventuresome, approximately 300 yards of uphill cross-country hiking through the woods and mountain laurels leads you to a maze of old logging roads criss-crossing Rich Mountain where you can hike for miles. There's lots of room for dogs to roam.

Spend your afternoons tubing on the Green River, fishing in nearby trout streams, apple-picking in conveniently located orchards, climbing Chimney Rock, exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway, visiting the Biltmore Estate, or enjoying antique-hunting and dining in Asheville and Hendersonville. Our central location puts you within 25 minutes of all these activities.

If you want a real get-away, a place that is not in a neighborhood or housing development, our cabin in the woods may be for you. It it laid back and secluded, although still within 13 minutes from all kinds of big-box stores and restaurants in Hendersonville. In fact, the final 1.3 miles to the cabin are on a dirt road that gets rather steep right before the cabin's driveway. The dirt road portion is about a 5-minute drive and do-able in regular cars, except in icy conditions, when it is best to have an SUV or 4-wheel drive. (We normally drive up in a Toyota Prius or Dodge Mini-Van and have no problems, but this IS a mountain dirt road!)

About Joe Kelly

This cabin is owned by two families who live and work in Charleston, SC. We have children that are very close in age, and we all love to go up to the cabin together when we get a chance. The set-up is great for families with children. The kids have their own bedrooms and living area downstairs where they can hang out and leave the grown-ups undisturbed in the evenings. We spend our time at the cabin hiking, holding ping-pong tournaments, sipping wine on the back deck, grilling out, and of course, taking advantage of river tubing, fishing, shopping, etc. in nearby Hendersonville and Asheville.

Joe Kelly purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Joe Kelly chose Hendersonville

Our cabin is a great place to get away from it all. We're surrounded by woods and hiking opportunities. After a short (but fairly steep and rough) hike up the hill behind the house, you will find miles and miles of old logging roads to explore on Rich Mountain and the surrounding hills. Yet, at the same time, we're a short, 13-minute drive away from numerous stores and restaurants in Hendersonville.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the log cabin feel of the place--the all-wood walls and ceilings in the upstairs living room, dining room, kitchen, and bedrooms especially. The cabin is extremely comfortable--laid-back and not fussy or fancy.

For the adventuresome, miles and miles of beautiful hiking available in mountains behind house (if you're willing to make the short, but somewhat steep and rough initial climb up behind the house). Final 1.3 miles on a dirt road and steep driveway--in icy conditions, an SUV or other 4-wheel drive vehicle is recommended. Note: we do NOT have wifi service at the cabin, but many guests are able to make a wifi hotspot with their phones, especially if they have Verizon cell phone service.

Upstairs was nice, needed better cleaning

  • 2 of 5

The upstairs of the cabin was nice, good kitchen and comfortable beds. The downstairs however was unusable due to the smell. It had a strong musty/mildew smell and was damp. We also found several dead mice which also was unappealing. There were cobwebs everywhere including bathrooms and bedrooms. We did not use the downstairs at all due to allergies.

Very peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time. The home is very nice, well supplied, and secluded. The location is good. We went to Chimany Rock, Biltmore Estate, and Pisgah sliding rock. The house is on a steep road, an all wheel drive veichle is recommended. We enjoyed our stay and the home.

Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was just as described and close to many attractions and hiking trails. It was a great place to disconnect and get away from day to day life. The abundance of games provided hours upon hours of old fashioned family fun.
