About MoonDance River Cabin

We have lived in the mountains here for many years and enjoy the beauty and serenity this special area affords. We built MoonDance River Cabin so that our guests can also share this experience and relax and be refreshed in the beauty of the mountains and river.

Why MoonDance River Cabin chose Asheville Area

The location is so special by the French Broad River. It is a mere 1.5 miles from the town of Hot Springs, in a tranquil, quiet setting. It gives a great place to relax and enjoy the river, woods and trails. Come back to the cabin and sit back in the hot tub on the private covered porch and take in the beauty of the mountains! You can be to restaurants and shops in less than 5 minutes. The Hot Springs Spa is close by also where you soak in the amazing natural mineral water and have a massage. A great place to ride your bike, fish or boat. Our desire is to create a quality cabin which reflects all the charm and style of the mountains combined with the comforts and amenities to make your vacation enjoyable and a special experience.

What makes this cabin unique

Unique riverfront location. Just outside the town of Hot Springs with the National Forest, Appalachian Trail, white water rafting, horse back riding, whitewater rafting, kayaking, biking, fishing, etc. all at your doorstep.

An AMAZING slice of Heaven!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful slice of heaven!!! We wish we had more time to spend in this gorgeous, newly built log home on the French Broad River, but this was meant to be a spontaneous Ellen's getaway for us to celebrate Valentine's Day, my birthday, and our upcoming five year anniversary! We never realized how hard it would be to leave this beautifully decorated and well stocked home! The house was immaculately clean an inviting upon our late night arrival (kudos to the cleaning crew!) Everything was thought of in this home-away-from-home, and nothing left to be desired! The view and privacy was exactly what we were looking for, for our weekend of celebration and relaxation! Truly cozy and romantic, we enjoyed cooking meals together in the gourmet kitchen, snuggling on the comfy couch watching movies in front of a warm fire, soaking in the hot tub on the private back deck, and retiring in the beautiful king sleigh bed at the end of the day! We ventured into town Saturday afternoon to walk around and do some shopping, since the weather was absolutely amazingly warm for February in the mountains! We also enjoyed a cocktail on the screened-in front porch while taking in the sounds and view of the river. Every amenity is thought of in this cozy home as if it were lived in everyday by the owner themselves! We have even discussed coming back and bring our 12 & 10 year old daughters for a week of fun on the river this summer, as well as another Ellen's getaway with our best friends! We are definitely going to return, and are counting the days until our return! Our only regret is that we ran out of time and were unable to add an entry into the guest book!

Perfect Relaxing Couples Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time at this beautiful cabin. The location was great! It felt secluded but was still very close to town. The back of the house is wooded and the river is just right across the street in front of the house. We enjoyed the views of the French Broad and the mountains from the screened in porch. The cabin included everything we needed for the weekend. We will definitely be back!

MoonDance River Cabin Experience

  • 5 of 5

The picture of the Cabin was up to date, and nicely decorated. The place was Beautiful, perfect and amazing, The cabin had a fully equipped kitchen, and lots of extras. like white clean bathrobes for all four adults, plenty of stack firer wood, hair dryers in each bathroom, plenty of towels and even a first aid kit. We enjoyed walking to the creek and listening to the water run, even had chairs for us to sit in. The hot tub was great after a long walk on the Appalachian trail, Lover's Lane. The owner had thought of everything to make you feel comfortable and at home. Felt like family. The area is perfect and was not too far from Downtown Hot Springs. We can't wait to go back to this same home. Loved everything about it!

A perfect thanksgiving family retreat!

  • 5 of 5

MoonDance is an inviting home away from home. The owners have taken every step to make sure their guests have all the needed supplies. They took the extra time time to decorate it with exquisite taste. We felt so comfortable in their home and enjoyed every minute. It was a relaxing, serene vacation home with beautiful views and centrally located to many places for us to venture out to. We enjoyed seeing the scenery on the hikes we took and we were close enough to go and visit different tourist towns like Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. We will definitely be recommending this home to our friends! We are so happy that this was our first experience with renting a vacation home by owner that we will definitely do this again!

Fall Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the MoonDance River Cabin for a "Fall" weekend getaway to see the changing of the leaves. The cabin was in a great location, and being across the street from the French Broad River in which my husband was able to fly fish one morning was a huge plus. We enjoyed making dinner in a kitchen that was as well equipped as our own, having breakfast on the deck, and evenings in the hot tub. The Blue Ridge Parkway was only a short distance away, allowing for miles of leaf watching, and hiking. We absolutely love your home, and hope to come back again!!!
