Milima Ranch truly is a destination of 4 seasons. The winter offers some exceptional snow days and the landscape transforms into a dramatic canvas that reveals the very backbone of the land which is hidden in the lush months of the summer..Magical!

The summer and fall months yet again present an ever changing canvas of the mountains and the wildflowers are a sight to be seen. A special treat starting in September is the ripening of the apple trees that are scattered throughout the 400 acres, followed shortly after by the fiery fall leaf season.

Romantic, Outdoor/Active or Nature Getaway: The cabin lends itself equally to a romantic getaway for a couple or a gathering of up to 6 people without compromising comfort or coziness. The multi-level offers privacy and comfort and a cozy corner or porch for everyone.

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!!!

Tranquil mountain paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a find. So peaceful, absolutely meticulously maintained and well thought out structure and hiking trails that kept us busy throughout our stay. My parents, wife and kids and I couldn't have asked for more.

You have all the creature comforts you want (high end appliances, great coffee machine, well stocked cooking spices/oils, wonderful beds and AMAZING patio). Unbelievable to just sit morning, day and night and drink coffee, wine or your beverage of choice and take in the natural beauty and omnipresent bird friends.

The hiking trails are so wonderfully maintained, and we loved a picnic lunch in the built in picnic table.

We had initially planned to make trips to Asheville, but once we settled in there was no way that we were going to waste a night away from this paradise

Recommend bringing smores materials for kids tonuse in gorgeous firepit, plenty of food to cook, and basic firestarting stuff to allow you to stay put at Milky way cabin

Can't say enough! I shouldn't say more so that the next time we need a break from the big city the residence is still available.

This is a very special house in its own idyllic valley. A 400-acre nature reserve with just one other house a way down the hill. It was so peaceful we didn't want to leave - ever.

Quiet Hideaway with Breathtaking Views from the Porch

  • 5 of 5

Few places we've discovered for rest and rejuvenation have "wowed" us like Milky Way Cabin did. The screened porch was our primary perch most of the time, for staring at the multiple

mountain ridges in the distance, listening to the birds and wildlife nestled nearby, and falling

asleep under the clearly visible Milky Way. The cabin was impeccably appointed, from the comfy beds to the kitchen, fully-stocked with utensils and appliances.

Thanks to Angie and Troy for their professional yet personal attention to our plans. We hope to come back!
