The summer and fall months yet again present an ever changing canvas of the mountains and the wildflowers are a sight to be seen.

Beautiful property, awesome service

  • 5 of 5

Coming from Florida, Milima Ranch offered a perfect getaway for our family of 6. The property was well maintained and the trail system was challenging but fun for the kids, especially to see snow at the top of the mountain! The cabin was well-appointed with all the comforts you would want. Angie was just awesome all around. In addition to welcoming us to the cabin and showing us around, she was in constant contact with us as we had to stay an extra day due to black ice on the roads. Amazing time and a very special place!

Owner's Response: So glad you were able to visit Milky Way this past season! That time of year is unpredictable with the weather, but also lots of fun...especially with snow on the mountain! We are open for the 2018 season now and would love to have you and your family visit with us again this year! All seasons hold a special kind of experience for families to enjoy!

Great adventure!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin and enjoyed having fires and hot chocolate to keep away the cold outside. The location in Clyde offered our family the ability to enjoy snowboarding/tubing,, hiking both on the property and at trails close by plus a trip to downtown Asheville. Great location with a stunning view and wonderful accommodations. I would highly recommend it!

Repeat Guest Loves It

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed here three times now, which we never do when renting homes / condo's, etc.. This place is great for anyone looking for a peaceful, beautiful setting away from the crowds and noise. Cabin is always in great shape, super clean with everything you need. Management is quick to respond if there is ever a question or need during your stay. We'll be back. :)

Favorite Mountain Cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th time to visit and once again were blown away by this place. The setting, views, trails, cabin....everything about this place is top notch. Enjoyed another trip into Waynesville for the farmers market then bounced around the town which is a good, easy break from the cabin if you feel like exploring. Already looking to come back next year!! Thanks for sharing :)

Amazing cabin and trip!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful trip at the Milky Way cabin on Milima Ranch!!! The setting was so beautiful and peaceful! It truly was a getaway and so awesome to get away from the hustle and bustle of life! The cabin was amazing! It was so clean and immaculately maintained! The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was wonderful and had anything you needed to cook! The grounds were kept up so well, with beautiful little gardens, a fire pit, and several surrounding hiking trails. It was so relaxing to leave the doors/windows open and have the natural breeze come in. We had planned on going to Asheville one night, but after arriving to the cabin, there was no way we were going to waste a night not staying there! And Angie was such a sweetheart! She met us at the cabin early during check in to show us around before we had to leave quickly for an early tee time at Maggie Valley Golf Club. She was so easy to get in touch with and quick to respond whenever we had a question! Thanks Angie for your wonderful cabin, the wonderful getaway, your hospitality and wonderful personality! It truly was a blessing to be at the cabin! ....... If you are thinking of staying at Milima Ranch, don't hesitate! You will love your stay!!!
