About Susan or Dave Donaldson

Dave and I bought this cabin strictly for a get away. We retired and loved the area so much we ended up relocating here permanently. We built a home right next door to the cabin we now have for rent.

Susan or Dave Donaldson purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Susan or Dave Donaldson chose Asheville Area

We lived in New Orleans for 28 years and decided to find a small get a way from the summer heat, hurricane season and to view the fall foliage. We looked in North Carolina and decided on a subdivision which offers us a gated community for security especially when we were 600 miles away from the property.

What makes this cabin unique

You would not have to leave the area except for grocery shopping. We have hiking, waterfalls, fishing, swimming, clubhouse, golf course, tennis, pickleball, playground, small beach at one of the parks on the lake, boating, picnicking etc.

Peace! This place is made for relaxing and enjoying the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are wonderful hosts! They provided details regarding the stay and checked in with us to ensure that all was well after we arrived at the cabin. They are attentive to details and the home is clean. We had everything we needed! I loved the stainless steel cooking pots and the kitchen was well equipped. The deck is amazing and it feels like you are in a treehouse. The community is full of amenities and we enjoyed many of them. The pool and tennis were fun for the kids. And, we all enjoyed the views of the lakes and hiking the well maintained trails in Connestee. Thanks for a great place to relax and enjoy the peace of the mountains!

Peaceful setting!

We rented the house for our mothers while we camped down the road. Great neighborhood and amenities. Thanks for making sure we were happy with our stay and the bottle of wine was a wonderful touch.

Really enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent 3 nights at the "cabin in the woods" and had some friends stay for a night too. We loved it. It was cozy, comfortable, clean, and welcoming. We especially enjoyed spending our evenings on the deck, talking and enjoying the woodsy setting, and in the mornings sipping coffee and watching the deer. Susan, the owner, also made sure we were not in need of anything. We will be back. Thanks for the hospitality Susan!

Connestee falls is a wonderful community.

  • 4 of 5

Cabin has a great large deck in the trees. We ate, read and played games on it. Dogs loved it too. Owners very hospitable and convenient.

Kitchen missing some items and living room sliding doors really needs a screen.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I got to spend a few days in this beautiful cabin. Our favorite part was grilling out at night on their spacious deck. The cabin sits on a very private lot and has lots of amenities in this gated community. The place is very clean and the owners are very responsive. We will definitely come back!
