About the property

Built in 2011 with a commitment to simple beauty and harmony with its natural surroundings, this cabin was designed by my architect sister with input from our family. With its understated luxury it preserves the delicate spirit of the Appalachian nature and features the work of artists and craftsmen of the Celo Valley.

Our cabin has three bedrooms and a loft and sleeps 6 people comfortably. The large, partially covered deck offers majestic views and cool breezes, even in the summer.

If you want a true mountain experience - with all the luxuries of a modern, beautifully decorated cabin - this is it.

About Lisa Steuer

We live in Charleston SC and Tampa FL and love our getaways to the mountains of North Carolina - especially in the hot summer months. In the fall, the colors are beautiful and remind us of where we grew up in southern Ontario and Bavaria.

Lisa Steuer purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Lisa Steuer chose Burnsville

My husband and I bought our cabin in 2006 and immediately fell in love with the people and surroundings of the South Toe Valley. Five years later we joined with my architect sister and her husband to build this new, beautiful cabin on the neighboring property, so now more people can experience the beauty of this area. We hope you will join us soon!

What makes this cabin unique

Hiking (easy walking or more intense hikes), biking, rock climbing, gem mining, fishing - this property has it all.

The cabin is within walking distance of the Pisgah National Forest. You can walk all the way to Mt. Mitchell and never get in a car.

Amazing Cabin, we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Cabin with a View, and will definitely be back, next time with more people! We shared the cabin between us and another couple, as well as our dog, and there was more than enough room for us all to relax and spread out. The view was amazing and the cabin was well outfitted with everything we needed, including modern appliances. Our only complaints would be there was not a lot of water pressure in the downstairs shower, and the chimney/fireplace allowed for smoke to come into the house when we had a fire going. We were able to crack an window to help mitigate the problem, but it did make us a bit uneasy with the smoke in the house that gathered in the eaves. Overall, a beautiful, well equipped, spacious cabin for a great price. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and are happy to hear you'd like to come back. I'm sorry you had trouble with the fireplace. Sometimes when the wood is wet, it's hard to get a roaring fire. We look forward to hearing back from you again one day.

Wonderful Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cabin with a View. The view of the mountains is absolutely stunning. We went for a weekend Anniversary Getaway but there is plenty of room to bring your kiddos for a stay! If you enjoy hiking you can hike without even driving anywhere. There is plenty of hiking around the cabin. We will be going back to stay again!

It was a wonderful, comfortable cabin with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

The layout of the cabin was perfect for my family. Plenty of comfortable beds and bathrooms. The wood burning fireplace and claw foot bathtub were appreciated by the grownups and the kids loved the loft. The directions to the cabin were detailed and helped a lot. My son and his family are already planning another ski weekend next year and want to stay in the Cabin With a View again. Thank you to the gracious hosts for providing a long list of places to go, things to do, hikes, and diners and cafes.

EXCEPTIONAL vacation experience!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed at many vacation rentals, I can say this was truly the best experience of them all! The owners are wonderful - pleasant, responsive, and accommodating. The property is... PERFECTION! It had everything we could want. Absolutely stunning views from every room in the house - we woke to gorgeous sunrises across the mountains every morning, and just stared in awe throughout the day across the gorgeous valley. The location is remote - glad we didn't take the low-to-the-ground sport cars for mountain play time, as they would not have made it up the steep (but well-maintained) gravel road. Regular cars will be fine, if you happen to have four-wheel-drive, it's a breeze. That remoteness was exactly what we needed - no traffic, no sounds of neighbors. Just absolute peace and quiet.

The house itself is perfect - wonderfully planned, quality construction, superbly decorated - absolutely comfortable! The kitchen is awesome - clean design, great appliances, everything you might have at home and then some, from high-quality cutlery, a full set of very nice pots and pans and bakeware, an abundance of nice flatware (something lacking at many vacation rentals, where there is just a hodgepodge of random "extras" from home and a distinct lack of gadgetry one might need to properly cook a meal!) and even a drawer full of lint-free proper kitchen towels. Added touches like the apple slicer we happened to need, and the tea kettle we used daily, were just proof positive that these owners have thought of everything! The bedding and linens were all quite nice, the mattresses were a bit on the firm side if you're not used to that, but I found it quite comfortable. We loved hanging out in the family room chatting and laughing, and remarked several times how much we wanted to take those gorgeous, comfortable armchairs home.

For those who love the outdoors and exploring, there is plenty of hiking to do right from the property, and the owners can guide you on several local trails through neighboring properties. You'll definitely get your cardio in while enjoying gorgeous scenery! When you want to go exploring in town, there are plenty of little shops and great places to eat - we thoroughly enjoyed Snap Dragon and Pig and Grits in Burnside.

If you're considering staying at this home-away-from-home, JUST DO IT. You won't regret it, and you'll be looking for excuses to come back, like we are!

Nearest Airport
50 Miles
Asheville, NC

This cabin offers a relaxing escape from hectic city life. Here you will find restful recreation in the open arms of nature. If you love to hike, bike and fish, then you'll fall in love with the South Toe River Valley and the Pisgah National Forest. There are miles and miles of hiking trails and roads for biking and rivers for fishing. Through tunnels of dark-green branched rhododendron and flame azaleas, you can walk right from our cabin to Mount Mitchell. If the focus of your vacation is to explore the craft studios of the Appalachian Mountains, then you've come to the right place. There are over 200 potters, glassblowers, metalworkers and jewelry makers within a forty mile radius of our cabin. Penland School of Crafts is about a thirty minutes drive from Celo. Mount Mitchell Golf Course, Carolina Hemlocks State Park, Crabtree Falls, the Appalachian Trail and the Mountain Goat Farm are all just a short drive away.
