Burnsville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Newer smoke-free cabin sits under huge oak tree and across from trout stream in Pisgah National Forest. Located at the base of Mt. Mitchell and walking distance to the Mt. Mitchell Crest trailhead. Hike the trails of the forest and be back home in your cabin the same day without having to drive!

Fish or go tubing in the South Toe River or play a round of golf at the Mt. Mitchell Country Club. Located ten minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, 30 minutes to historic downtown Burnsville, one hour to Asheville or Boone.

Our family has been coming to Western North Carolina for years searching for the perfect family vacation spot. We believe we have found it in Serendipity.

It is the perfect combination, isolated, but not too far from civilization. You can arrive, with a stop at the supermarket on the way in, and have enough to do without having to use your car. Serendipity also makes the perfect home base for day trips to all North Carolina and Tennessee has to offer. Free Wifi and pet friendly. Call or e-mail for more information.

Why Owner/Property Manager chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

We wanted to break Out of our normal vacation routine! We were tired of overpaying for cramped hotel rooms and paying exorbitant entertainment costs. We couldn't even bring our dog with us without staying at the worst hotels. We chose North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Mountains because it provides a variety of free entertainment that gets our family's adrenaline pumping.

What makes this cabin unique

When we stay at our cabin, we have the great outdoors right on your doorstep. We pack the bicycles, throw the kayak or tubes on top of the car, and get ready for a vacation of outdoor adventure that the kids (and dog) love! We can drive to Asheville, Water rafting, horseback riding, Gem Mining, Apple and Blueberry picking, etc.

When we visit our cabin home, we are coming to beautiful Yancey County, the land of Mount Mitchell and the Pisgah National Forest. Our cabin is located in an alpine valley. The elevation of roughly 3,000 feet makes for a cooler summer, but the flatness of the terrain makes it easier to reach in the winter. You do not need an all-terrain vehicle to reach us. Hiker's love the fact they can do some very difficult trails and then relax in comfort when they are done.

Beautiful cabin in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in this cabin! It was my first time using VRBO and I was a bit hesitant to give it a try, but I am so glad we did! It truly felt like a home-away-from home. The cabin itself was ideally located off the Blue Ridge Pkwy and had all the amenities you would need (comfy bed, pretty fast Wi-Fi, satellite TV, indoor fireplace). An extra fun bonus were the hummingbird feeders surrounding the house that were home to many little hummingbirds. Would recommend it to my family and friends to stay here!

Cozy cabin with easy access to Blue ridge Parkway and Mount Mitchell hiking!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was comfortable, clean and had all of the amenities for relaxing after daytime exploring. The porch was my favorite part, where you could enjoy your coffee while watching the butterflies and hummingbirds, and listening to the creek babbling. The cabin is only 5 minutes from the junction of the Blue Ridge Parkway and 80 (mile marker 344), but there are also nice trails walking distance from the cabin out of the local campground.

Couldn't Be Better!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Serendipity and it continues to be a wonderful experience for the whole family! It is extremely clean, well-kept and well-stocked - they have truly thought of everything. Our dogs are so happy that they don't get left behind when we go on vacation. Beautiful area and beautiful cabin!

Awesome Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the cabin with my westie dog May 22 - May 27. The Cabin was extremely comfortable and frankly more than I expected - everything I needed was at the cabin! Location offered several walkable hike options including the ability to hike up Mount Mitchell which I chose not to do but drove their instead and spent the day hiking the trails at the top of the mountain (highly recommend!). But did hike to a few waterfalls in the area and along the river and took a few day (driving) trips to various locations along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Cabin is located in a very private area that allows complete relaxation and plenty of nature. Enjoyed watching the hummingbirds at the feeder and other birds in the area. Also enjoyed using the outdoor fire pit one night. Recommendation for future visitors - make sure you stop at the grocery store and get all the food you need for your stay because you won't want to leave this place once you arrive!
