About Melanie Prater

We have always been mountain and outdoor lovers with family activities including hiking, camping and boating. We were drawn to Hot Springs for the peaceful surroundings and wonderful town.

Melanie Prater purchased this cabin in 1991

Why Melanie Prater chose Asheville Area

Our family purchased this property as a second home, magical getaway in beautiful Hot Springs, NC. We loved the area so much we now call Hot Springs home. We now offer this beautifully restored 1922 Arts & Crafts Chestnut Log cabin as a vacation rental for your special home away from home.

What makes this cabin unique

We fell in love with The Chestnut Log Cabin as it was an original 1922 Arts & Crafts home with a special feeling. Bonuses for us is the cabin is directly on the Appalachian Trail and walking distance to town with a wonderful rocking chair front porch. New! Secured wi-fi!

Old log cabin close to AT but needs updates/refurb

  • 3 of 5

First, Melanie (owner) is great and seems really nice, though we only spoke on the phone. If you're considering this place, you should know that it's a pretty old log home that hasn't been updated in..well..maybe ever. All walls have paint or wall paper peeling, all plumbing fixtures are original (old, rusty), there's no central A/C (one single window unit for the entire home). The kitchen isn't super well appointed (two dull knives, a few pots, etc. Lacking some basic cooking utensils). The hot tub is small but nice, and the fire pit outside was a nice touch. It's very, very close to the AT, and the wifi was fast. Overall, I think it was a bit expensive for what we got, but given how small Hot Springs is, it's easy to inflate the value a bit.

They don't build them like they use too!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this wonderfully built log cabin. I marveled at the craftsmanship evident in all the details. We couldn't help but wonder about the cabin's beginnings and history. It was a lovely experience. I didn't realize it was situated right on the main road, which made me a little nervous for my 4 year old child who loves to run and play. The towels in the bathroom were all very damp. We didn't contact the owner about it, because we trusted they were clean. We put them out to dry, but it was a little off-putting. I agree with previous reviews about the hot tub, awkwardness of bathroom, and towel quality. But overall, a very fine experience, with a responsive host. I recommend packing a pair of slippers with non-slip bottoms to keep your feet warm while inside, and bring a robe or an extra plush towel for going back and forth between the hot tub and the house. We enjoyed the fire pit, and our lil one loved roasting marshmallows each night. Also, my lil guy had the hardest time saying goodbye to the sweet stuffed bear from the bunk bed. He said, "I love you" to the bear and "we'll be back soon" countless times as we were leaving. And if you want a 4 year old's perspective on the place... He said, "Mommy, this cabin is perfect!"

We thoroughly enjoyed it. The cabin is very "quaint"

  • 4 of 5

I can only rate it 4 stars, because of the bathroom. The house is very nice, clean, and the location is excellent. Melanie was a great host & help. The bathroom tile, faucet, etc. needs to be repaired/replaced. We certainly would return.

Very nice place and conveniently located. Perfect for hiking the AT. Great host.

  • 4 of 5

The property was just what we wanted. 4 stars since the plaster was pealing in places and the bathroom faucet dripped. But we really enjoyed the property and would stay again. Very thoughtful host.

Owner's Response: Right on the Appalachian Trail our 100 year old, updated Arts & Crafts log cabin is a very unique mountain getaway experience. The private outdoor hot tub is just what you needed after you hike in! Thanks for letting me know about the faucet, we are close by and can get maintenance over during your visit or offer a temporary solution. We have slated repairs to the original plaster between guests stays. Second bedroom is complete as well as the sunroom.

Great location in first town on the AT.

  • 4 of 5

This was our second year here. Melanie is great and even dropped off more linens and towels a few days into the stay. Some of the paint is peeling but the cabin is warm and spacious. It is 2 houses away from the AT trail head into Hot Springs. We got some cold weather but cooked marshmallows over the fire pit. Great porch and yard.

Owner's Response: Thanks for returning to our treasure; Chestnut Log Cabin. What a perfect location for your team's Appalachian Trail research project! We are close by and available to bring additional supplies, answer questions and provide activity suggestions. As we complete repairs and updates we keep in time with the age of the 1922 cabin. Glad you appreciate the effort to provide an authentic Arts & Crafts retreat.
