Perfect rural surroundings with beautifully manicured trails, breathtaking views, which switch from verdant, rolling hills to pinky-purple sunsets and morning streaks of misty light. We cannot wait to return to this serene, private piece of paradise..........

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

As we drove up the gravel road to Milima Ranch, there was a bit of concern. We weren't sure where we were going. But once we arrived to the cabin, all of our concern disappeared. Angie did a fabulous job of showing us around the cabin and introducing us the surrounding property. We had a few rainstorms while there, but the view still remained magical. Loved seeing the rain come across the valley. There were times that we were literally in the clouds. The Milky Way cabin is gorgeous. Well appointed with updated furnishings and appliances. My husband and I worked while there, but we so enjoyed seeing the visiting birds, and the resident horses and cows throughout the day. We also hiked on the property trails. Loved the quiet and serenity of it all. It was the most restful sleep I've had in months. Wish we could have stayed longer, and we look forward to visiting again one day.

luxury cabin describes the cabin correctly!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property which is correctly described as luxury. Beautiful surroundings very removed from distractions. The enclosed screened in porch was remarkable. Everything about the house was perfect down to the stock of dishes and pots and pans. Very spacious for my family of 6 but could easily accommodate 8. Outdoor fire pit area was prepared for us and allowed us to cook smores under the stars. Angie was great to deal with! I wish this was my house!!!!

Paradise in the mountains of North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful vacation we had at Milima Ranch. Every aspect of the rental was perfection. The bedrooms, the kitchen, the living area - all well-appointed and maintained. The screened porch was our family favorite - watching the birds and listening to all the mountain sounds. The property was gorgeous, the hiking trails well-marked and maintained. The horses were an extra bonus for our kids. Angie was so attentive and response time was quick. The ranch was close to Waynesville and Ashville, and not a bad drive to Nantalahala Outdoor Center where we rafted. We hope to return soon in the fall to enjoy the leaves changing and maybe enjoy a apple from one of the apple trees. Many thanks to Angie for this wonderful experience.

Breath taking.

  • 5 of 5

The dirt road up to the property was a bit long but well worth the wait. The view of the scenic landscape is beyond words. The view from the main floor was serine and extremely calming, especially from the hustle and bustle of hectic city life. The staff was more than hospitable and truly good people.
