About the property

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

We invite you to visit our North Carolina Mountain, one-of-a-kind riverfront vacation cabin conveniently located to Asheville, Biltmore Estate, Black Mountain, Chimney Rock, and Lake Lure.

Tucked away in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Rock Creek Retreat is the perfect place to leave the world behind and enjoy a secluded natural paradise offering the ultimate in privacy, yet located only minutes from popular Western North Carolina Mountain locations and activities.

The natural beauty begins on the Blue Ridge Parkway as you make your way to the cabin and then continues as you turn into the hidden driveway and see the Broad River as it makes a tranquil bend just in front of the home. The river winds its way down the mountain through the lush green of rhododendron, dogwood, spruce, and pine that landscapes the 2 1/2 acre property.

You can enjoy the relaxing sights and sounds of the river right from the rocking chair porch of this vacation home in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Stroll down to the edge for a closer view, cool your feet, or cast for a few of the native trout. Above all, just relax and feel the stress of daily life melt away.

Special Features include:

* Three cozy bedrooms... two with queen-size beds, and a third with twins

* Breakfast room/den with comfortable futon that sleeps an additional two persons

* Two full baths... equally accessible to all bedrooms

* Large stone hearth and wood-burning stove... perfect for relaxing any time of year. Wood is provided.

* Spacious river-view porch with rocking chairs, porch swing, and outside dining

* Riverside outdoor fireplace and picnic area

* Everything needed for a comfortable and carefree stay... all linens, towels, cooking utensils, washer and dryer, Satellite TV, DVD, grill

* Sleeps eight comfortably

* Lovely path down to river from cabin to enjoy fishing, floating and wading, or sunbathing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived with our 8 children and never dreamed of the memories we would make at this perfect cabin by the creek. Our four boys explored the beauty of God's Beautiful Creation by the flowing river. The girls laid blankets out and read under the big, colorful trees. My husband taught my boys how to cut wood and we sat on the front porch wrapped in blankets and talked of "family things" and our future dreams… The smell of the wood stove will be a special reminder of our stay at Rock Creek.

Quiet Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Rock Creek Retreat. It is in a lovely setting where you feel as if you had the woods and river all to yourself. The outdoor fireplace and lovely porch where we could eat while we saw and heard the river made us feel like we were completely in the woods, but when the rain came we could go inside and watch a movie and play games. We loved watching all the hummingbirds that came to feeder on the porch. It was also located near Black Mountain, Montreat, Asheville, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. What a wonderful combination of the great outdoors and the modern conveniences! Thank you for a serene and restful time at your cabin!

Great Mountain Getawa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home - secluded, steps all the way down to the Broad River, rocking chair and swing on front porch and 30 minutes from Lake Lure, Hendersonville, Asheville, Black Mountain and BRP. Living room and dining room large and comfortable with lots of natural light from huge windows all around. Kitchen was furnished with all essentials - washer and dryer were nice to have! Bedrooms on opposite ends of house each with a bathroom = privacy for couples. Third BR with twin beds. Best features - loved seeing and hearing the river, the deck with swing walking down to the river and best of all swing and rocking chairs on front porch! There is also a wood burning stove (although we did not get to use) with dry firewood furnished AND an outdoor portable fire pit. Wood Stove Pizza in Black Mountain was delicious, Biscuut Head in Asheville is a must. Good fishing and just beautiful surroundings. AND House was very clean. Highly recommend!
