Waterfall Cabin in the Pisgah National Forest!

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 4 nights


About the property

Get off the grid and venture into Pisgah National Forest to find 'Ama Falls,' a secluded 1-bedroom, 1-bath vacation rental cabin that backs up to a waterfall deep in the lush forests of the Black Mountains. Enjoy the cool mountain air and sounds of crashing waterfalls from the gorgeous riverfront deck. Treat this cabin as your own base camp for visiting Mt Mitchell and Mt Celo, North Carolina’s two tallest peaks over 6000 feet - they loom right there above your head!


Bedroom: Queen Bed

The appropriately named 'Ama', meaning water in Cherokee, was given rightfully so, as the sounds of serene rivers and crashing waterfalls that surround this property provide a calming natural atmosphere like none other!

The cabin’s name is not the only touch of Native American culture you’ll find here - this space is filled with Cherokee-inspired influences in each room which adds to the unique ambiance. ‘Ama’ is covered in rustic wood paneling and mountain decor to make the space feel warm and cozy.

There's plenty to admire downstairs as you venture into the cabin and find your spot by the propane gas log fireplace or on the fur-lined leather chair. You'll be happy to find the kitchen fully equipped and filled with updated appliances so you won't have to make the drive into town, and can spend your nights cooking up dinners together in a kitchen of your own.

Take dinner to the outdoors and spend a night eating on the covered deck instead! This space boasts a 2-person table, outdoor grill, and incredible view of the river below, perfect for those warm summer nights. For a front row seat, walk down to the river to roast marshmallows over the fire pit while relaxing in the outdoor furniture.

Kick back in the additional living space upstairs, which features a flat-screen cable TV, eclectic furniture and magical fairy lights strung overhead. Upstairs you’ll also find the inviting bedroom - a vibrant spot with plenty of space to feel comfortable in. Enjoy a bit of added luxury in the bathroom with a large walk-in tile shower.


Untouched and inaccessible to the public, you'll have an entire forest to explore for yourselves. The home is at the base of Celo Knob, the northernmost peak of the Black Mountain Range, so you’ll have unparalleled backyard access to hiking, rock climbing, and mountaineering beginning at a base of 6,327 feet - adventure enthusiasts are encouraged to bring their gear along on the trip!

For those who are more comfortable on the green, the Mt. Mitchell Golf Club is just a 15-minute drive away and ensures an enjoyable and scenic 18-holes.

If you're looking to skip a day of seclusion, drive to the quaint nearby town of Burnsville. In the heart of Burnsville is Town Square, where arts and crafts festivals are often taking place throughout the year. You'll also find dozens of local favorite restaurants, so you won't have to explore the town on an empty stomach.

Waterfall Cabin in the Pisgah National Forest!
average rating of 5.0 based on 14 reviews
Knoxville, TN

Wonderful, Peaceful, Serene with every amenity!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful waterfall cabin retreat away from busy life! The cabin is decorated authentically for its location in the Pisgah National Park! Tastefully and warmly decorated. What is also amazing is the cabin backs right up to the edge of the National Park (at the base of the Mountain (Celo Knob) and is so peaceful and secluded. I enjoyed sitting out on the porch that overlooks a waterfall right off the porch and a babbling stream. The best "sound" ambiance you can find. This is surely a place to restore, sooth, and heal the mind and spirit! The owners Jack and Jim are amazing too, kind and gracious individuals, always helpful when you need advice while allowing your complete privacy.

Great small cabin with beautiful waterfall and creek

  • 5 of 5

Cabin is beautiful and the waterfall right off the backyard was like out of a commercial. Only problem we had was the AC did not work. The first night was OK with the fans on and windows open but very humid. The second day temps soared into the high 90’s so it never really cooled off in the house until about 4am, Not that big of a deal unless you are going through menopause and get night sweats. We ended up just sleeping down stairs where the dehumidifier was and just made a pallet on the floor and cranked up the fans. Area is beautiful and House is stocked well with dishes, silverware, towels, etc. A little store is close so you can get milk, etc. Would love to return!

A beautiful, peaceful property you never want to leave and hope to return to again and again.

  • 5 of 5

This enchanting cabin with its mesmerizing waterfalls is the perfect getaway. It is peaceful and just far enough away from civilization. However, it is close enough to restaurants and shops so you have everything you need. Hiking is right outside the door, and state parks are nearby. And, yes, the waterfall is as spectacular as everyone says. Do not worry about packing your white noise machine. Opening the bedroom window gives you nature’s best sound machine. My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. When it was time to leave, he had to drag me away, kicking and screaming. My hope is we return many more times to this restful, renewing place.

Wonderful cabin by waterfall

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the AMA cabin. The cabin is well-decorated, comfortable and clean. Around every corner is something interesting to see. We spent the majority of our time on the porch watching the little waterfall. It rained most of the time we were there, but that honestly added to the already relaxing and peaceful atmosphere of the cabin. We highly advise visiting the cabin. Very enjoyable.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The location, ambiance inside and out, proximity to waterfalls (one is right by the cabin!), comfort, convenience and more are even better than expected! The host is warm, welcoming and helpful. The cabin is well stocked, and the decor is amazing! This was beyond our expectations!

The Ama cabin was a little piece of paradise! It was warm and cozy, beautifully decorated.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the view of the falls off of the porch. We were steps away from the trail up Mt. Celo. Although we didn't make it to the top we had fun trying. The cabin is beautifully decorated. Jack had everything we needed there to make our stay very enjoyable. We definitely will be coming back. Thank you so much!!!
