About the property

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.

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here; the only bad thing about it was that we did not have any cell signal, but there is internet to connect via wifi so this was not too bad. Nice view... Great deck and wonderful fireplace. Would recommend to anyone! Also, the owner is very kind and helpful.

Exactly what we were looking for. The cabin itself is well maintained, clean, and had everything you need to enjoy your stay. The surrounding area has some beautiful scenery and a few trails close by that made for some nice walks with the dogs. Looking forward to coming back again in the future.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice cabin. All you truly have to bring in your clothes and food. Very pretty property. Lot of books toys games and movies for the whole family. Only thing was the floor has a hump in it which made it to be super noisy.

Fall in North Carolina

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed the beautiful location and large front porch for relaxing and reading. Very close to the excellent Mt Mitchell golf course. Fully furnished kitchen and everything we needed. Only drawback for us was an uncomfortable couch since it was the type which could also be made into a bed. No other relaxing place to sit inside unless using a rocking chair or kitchen chair.
