About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Sunrise Lookout is a truly unique mountain top vacation rental in the heart of Pisgah National Forest and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Come enjoy the peace of the cabin and amazing views of the Spring Creek area.

Our home is private, yet accessible, and situated atop a mountain on 4 acres. We modeled our home after the Duckett Top fire lookout tower, which is visible across the Spring Creek valley. Inside, you will find a simple, modern design with a bright living area, 2 bedrooms (plus a futon in the living area), and lots of windows to enjoy the views. The cabin is stocked with games (for adults and children) and books and toys for kids. There is cozy in-floor radiant heat (and A/C for those rare days when it is needed) to keep you comfortable. We have wireless broadband internet and a WiFi radio (listen to stations and podcasts from around the world).

Outside, help yourself to seasonal offerings in our gardens...blueberries, raspberries (golden and red!), blackberries, and a variety of vegetables and herbs. Enjoy the views and peace on the hammock chairs, the porch swing, or the outdoor dining set. There is a charcoal grill for cooking and a fire pit (wood supplied) for relaxing. The hot tub is also a favorite feature -- we clean and refill the hot tub for each set of guests. The hot tub is located on the deck which surrounds the second floor.

Your four legged friends are welcome at Sunrise Lookout. You may also encounter wildlife during your stay as we share the mountains with bears, bobcats, turkeys, coyotes, and other animals.

We are located about 45 minutes from Asheville and 20 minutes from Hot Springs in the friendly and scenic community of Spring Creek. We are 7 miles from Max Patch (and the Appalachian Trail) and the same distance from Harmon Den Recreation Area. You can fly fish in the area creeks or fish in the pond at Max Patch. Rafting/tubing are available in Hot Springs, and there are local opportunities for horse back riding and llama trekking. Also, ask us for directions to the secret swimming hole when you book!

Feel free to contact us with any questions about our home or the area.

Amazing get away- you'll be a repeat vacationer

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I LOVE this place. The cabin itself is very nice. It feels very new and is always very clean. We love the views, and we particularly love the solitude and peace and quiet. Yet, it is a short-ish drive to Hot Springs if we want to go out to dinner. The main reason we first stayed here is because it is pet friendly. It is so hard to find a truly nice place to stay with your pets, and this is one of them. We have stayed here many times over the years, and will continue to do so. We have visited during all seasons, and love visiting any time of the year. The hot tub is nice- I only wish that the temperature could be made warmer, it always feels on the lukewarm (vs. hot) end to my husband and I, but that is my only complaint. The owners are very fast with communication, which I appreciate.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone. You will love it.

Gorgeous getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place to relax and enjoy the mountains. We loved the wrap around porch and the views it provided. We even used the telescope to do some star and moon gazing. Very glad it was dog friendly and our pooch loved the dog bed. Check out the town of Hot Springs and Max Patch for some nice day trips. We will for sure look to stay here again in the future!

It felt like home as soon as we walked in. Warm, clean and inviting. They literally opened up their home to us. Bring your personal items and everything else is provided.

We had a fabulous stay and enjoyed this well-equipped and perfectly situated cabin. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and taking in the beautiful views of the mountains. The hot tub was a great addition. We highly recommend!

great place for a quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

my family really enjoyed our visit to the sunrise lookout cabin! we (me, my husband, and our 15 month old daughter) stayed for 3 nights and just appreciated the quiet simplicity of the house and its surroundings. we cooked many meals in the small but well-equipped kitchen, took a nighttime dip in the hot tub, and loved connecting our phones/laptops to the audio system to enjoy music both inside and outside the cabin all day and night. the bedroom w/ twin beds had enough floor space for our daughter's pack-n-play. we even woke up in time to see the sunrise from the deck one morning and it was gorgeous. karen was great with communication and gave clear directions on getting to the cabin, nearby things to do, etc.. would definitely recommend sunrise lookout to our friends and family.
