Black Mountain Cabin Rental Photos and Description

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!

Lovely property, located on a small river, off the beaten track

  • 4 of 5

My family and i stayed here for a long weekend in August. It was very hot, but the cabin air conditioning worked well, and it was cool enough at night to open the windows and enjoy the sounds of nature. The kitchen was well-equipped, the beds were clean and comfortable. The Millers provide entertainment - puzzles, games, movies, etc. However, our favorite activity was sitting outside on the porch or deck, watching the river and talking. We also enjoyed splashing around in the water. Communication with our hosts before, during, and after our trip was prompt and comprehensive. several items were left behind, and they very graciously helped us retrieve them. Lovely weekend!

Riverfront Cabin was great location and had everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the riverfront cabin. It was a great location for what we planned to do on our vacation. We climbed Mt Mitchell, we hiked and saw beautiful waterfalls at Dupont Forest, we climbed the many steps to Chimney Rock, toured the Biltmore Estate, spent afternoons in Asheville and Black Mountain .....The cabin had everything we needed for our week stay. It was equipped with fishing poles to fish in the river below the cabin, tubes to float on the river-which was a blast, washer and dryer, grills, firepit, movies, books to read, games to play, dishes, dishwasher.....we really only needed to bring ourselves, food and clothes. The property owner thought of everything!

Beautiful riverfront cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 5 adults and 2 kids and we stayed for 1 week at the mountain cabin. The river is just lovely and it's much more picturesque than the photos convey. The steps down to the cabin are rather steep but there is a very well designed set of stairs and viewing deck. Nights at the cabin were peaceful and quiet. We caught a glimpse of a flying squirrel robbing the bird feeder one night. In the day there were plenty of hummingbirds and other flying visitors. All in all we had a very nice relaxing visit.

Our stay at this wonderful cabin by the Broad River was amazing. It is a beautiful spot in the mountains, an older cabin that has been beautifully maintained.

We spent hours on the front porch in the morning drinking coffee and evenings watching the fireflies. The mornings were crisp and cool. Our two teenage grandkids spent many hours down at the creek. They enjoyed horseback riding at two stables. We found three restaurants we really liked Larkins on the Lake, an Italian restaurant on the hill Lake Lure and Phil's BBQ Black Mountain.

The kitchen is fully equipped and everything worked fine. We found many treasures at Chimney Rock stores. We will be back for another stay.
