Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in Hendersonville - Pet-Friendly Mountain Cabin

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Perched deep in the woods near apple orchards, the Biltmore Estate, and Lake Lure, this sunny log cabin features 4 bedrooms (2 queen upstairs, 1 queen and 1 twin set downstairs), 3 baths, upstairs and downstairs living areas with televisions, a well-stocked kitchen, and a ping-pong table in the garage. It's a great set-up for families with kids.

Enjoy the rocking chairs on the covered back deck as you look out over a wooded hill with winter views. The covered front porch supplies a picnic table and charcoal grill for outdoor eating. Extensive hiking is available at the top of Rich Mountain, a short climb up the hill behind the house. There's lots of room for dogs to roam.

Spend your afternoons tubing on the Green River, fishing in nearby trout streams, apple-picking in conveniently located orchards, climbing Chimney Rock, exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway, visiting the Biltmore Estate, or enjoying antique-hunting and dining in Asheville and Hendersonville. Our central location puts you within 25 minutes of all these activities.

If you want a real get-away, a place that is not in a neighborhood or housing development, our cabin in the woods may be for you. It it laid back and secluded, although still within 13 minutes from all kinds of big-box stores and restaurants in Hendersonville. In fact, the final 1.3 miles to the cabin are on a dirt road that gets rather steep right before the cabin's driveway. The dirt road portion is about a 5-minute drive and do-able in regular cars, except in icy conditions, when it is best to have an SUV or 4-wheel drive. (We normally drive up in a Toyota Prius or Dodge Mini-Van and have no problems, but this IS a mountain dirt road!)

About Joe Kelly

This cabin is owned by two families who live and work in Charleston, SC. We have children that are very close in age, and we all love to go up to the cabin together when we get a chance. The set-up is great for families with children. The kids have their own bedrooms and living area downstairs where they can hang out and leave the grown-ups undisturbed in the evenings. We spend our time at the cabin hiking, holding ping-pong tournaments, sipping wine on the back deck, grilling out, and of course, taking advantage of river tubing, fishing, shopping, etc. in nearby Hendersonville and Asheville.

Joe Kelly purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Joe Kelly chose Asheville Area

Our cabin is a great place to get away from it all. We're surrounded by woods and hiking opportunities. After a short hike up the hill behind the house, you will find miles and miles of old logging roads to explore on Rich Mountain and the surrounding hills. Yet, at the same time, we're a short, 13-minute drive away from numerous stores and restaurants in Hendersonville.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the log cabin feel of the place--the all-wood walls and ceilings in the upstairs living room, dining room, kitchen, and bedrooms especially. The cabin is extremely comfortable--laid-back and not fussy.

Lovely home in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 6 that stayed for two nights in September. The location is beautiful and the house was perfect for our size. This was so much nicer than staying in hotel rooms. We really enjoyed the porch and rocking chairs in the morning as a family gathering spot. We only ate breakfast there but the kitchen was very nice and stocked with all the essentials. The bedrooms were comfortable as well. The drive up the dirt road was very exciting, especially the first time at 10:00 at night! For Chicago city dwellers it was a new experience they we really enjoyed. We would definitely return.

Great cabin! Great value!

My family had a fantastic stay at this cabin. it was a very well stocked home, and after meals we enjoyed the firepit. Would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to kick back and relax. Verizon has decent cell service, No At&t though.

Great cabin for the price!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the cabin! As others have reported the steep road up the mountain gave me a little anxiety but my husband was driving and he was fine with it. Everything was clean and well stocked. The fire pit was great and my son and I had the BEST time playing ping pong together. We hadn't laughed so hard together in a long long time. There is no king size bed in the cabin which did not make for the best night sleep as we are used to having more space, but we managed. We had a minor issue when we arrived but the owners responded to our call immediately and the problem was quickly resolved. Overall, we were happy with the cabin especially given the low price!

My sisters and I took our 81 year old father on a much needed family retreat to let him talk about his life and experiences. We believe he is in the early stages of Dementia, so this trip was extra special to all of us. The cabin was exactly as listed and absolutely beautiful. The bedrooms were clean and roomy. Our father spent his quiet time on the front porch rocking and reading his bible, while we spotted a large woodpecker just off the back porch. The yard was somewhat overgrown and the 1.3 mile road in a little more bumpy than I expected for my Nissan Sentra. There was plenty to do in town and in the surrounding areas, but we stayed at the house most of the trip. Our small dogs truly enjoyed their stay as well. The kitchen provided everything you could possible need and having the extra large toaster was a plus. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and the owners were informative and friendly through out our stay. We will use this house again if we can and any other rentals these owners provide. For my family it was an exceptional time.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good things about our stay at this cabin. It had everything we needed, and then some. The porch with the rocking chairs was our favorite place to unwind after a trip down the mountain to Hendersonville each day. We loved the privacy and enjoyed listening to the birds sing in the morning. We couldn't have asked for a more comfortable and cozy cabin to spend our Memorial Day holiday in. Thank you so much for sharing with us!

Very cute and comfy cabin!

  • 3 of 5

We had 5 adults and 2 children in the cabin which made the accommodations very comfortable for all of us. The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed. We had rain most of our stay so we appreciated the extra umbrella! Thank you! Everything was very clean and we loved sitting outside listening to the birds!! Very calming and relaxing.

The only complaint we had was the very rough and bumpy road we had to travel to get to the cabin. The directions supplied by the owner were very confusing, Being almost 2 miles on this road, more landmarks could be included. Also, the downstairs bathroom electric outlet didn't work which made it very inconvenient to have to go upstairs to use blow dryer, curling iron, etc. Other than that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
