Stay in our Spotted Rock Cabin
Our charming red cabin is a two bedroom, one bath loft home built high up on a mountain ridge with views extending far off towards the Smoky Blue Mountains and the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Facing west, watch the sun set from the deck while relaxing in our rocking chairs with a cocktail.
At three thousand feet, get away from the summer heat, enjoy our rustic wood stove fireplace in the evenings and hike through the hundreds of acres of surrounding forest, and through our own 60 acres of solitude.
You can reach the cabin in your regular car, and when 'home', the shack with its two compulsory mounted deer heads looking over the living room will feel like your place for rest and relaxation.
Don't look for the granite, you wont find it, but do bring your laptops as there is high speed internet available, a wireless printer/scanner all ready for your office away from home and netflix for bumming it on a lazy day.
Feel your blood pressure fall as you drive up to the top of our ridge, passing through the security gate to reach this exclusive mountain top where you can rest easy knowing you are in the coziest cabin here.
You cannot see your neighbors, they are a good long walk away. Perfect for strolls, and seeing the deer that roam around.
See the Area
Shop for antiques or groceries in Brevard NC which is 20 minutes away. Dine at the pleasant Red Lion Inn, at the bottom of the mountain (1 mile from the cabin).
Fish at our local lake, which is within a mile or if you like hiking through the woods, straight down the mountain.
See the spectacular mountain meadow waterfall within two miles of your family home in the mountains.
Go on Day-Trips
The Transylvania county / Asheville area is called the 'Land of Waterfalls' for good reason. Visit one of the five state parks that surround the cabin, drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, in about thirty minutes, dine at the fabulous Pisgah Inn restaurant (58 min from your cabin) overlooking the entire area.
Visit the Biltmore House (1hr 19min from the cabin) for a day of seeing how you will never live. Go to the Asheville Farmers Market (1hr 5min) and pick up jams, honey, dried fruit and all manner of fresh produce...so you can be healthy.
Go kayaking or tubing with the Headwaters Outfitters (9 minutes from the cabin, near Rosman) down the French Broad or Davidson Rivers....
Use our 4.5 inch telescope to show your family the planets in our clear, starry sky after you downloaded a sky app to your smart phone.
Visit Asheville (1 hour) and dine at the Mellow Mushroom in downtown, knowing you can escape back to your cabin when the artists wake up.
Slide down the rocks at Sliding Rock (30 min from our Brevard Cabin), go to Pisgah National Forest, Hike in The Great Smoky Mountains National Forest, Go fishing in the Nantahala National Forest, pick-nick in the Table Rock State Park, drive through the Ceasars Head State Park or view deer in the Chattahoochee National forest.
If scenic drives is your thing, Route 64 passes right by, and is one of America's most scenic highways with a car-stopping waterfall or view about every .02 miles. Outfit your whole family with neck braces before you go ... you will be breaking so often.
Hang out on a rainy day in the cabin, showing your incredible youtube videos to your friends and family on the TV through our chromecast device and your chrome browser.
Take a day trip to the town of Highlands (1 hour from the cabin) where most of the porches and bently's west of the Mississippi are found. Drive past one of the many country clubs near Cashiers (45 min) and Lake Toxaway and the Greystone Inn (25 min), knowing that you would have to sell your house to pay the entrance fee to become a member.
Pick-up that nagging relative at the Asheville Airport (54 minutes from your Brevard Rental Cabin)....yes, with all that nagging, it's a day trip!
Take a tour of the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute PARI (30 min) to see their huge radio telescopes and to learn how they transmitted the words 'one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind' to us slugs at home on our couches while Armstrong got some exercise strolling about the moon.
Visit Hendersonville (56 min from the cabin) and stroll down energetic main street on Friday evening.
Lastly, have breakfast at the Country Skillet in Rosman (11 min from the cabin) so you can be among other folks like yourself and work on that belly fat that we soooo need to be hiking off.
To book is easy, if the calendar shows it is not already booked, book online! If you have kids younger than five, contact me about their safety first. The cabin is pet friendly, but we need to charge a small pet cleaning fee for the cleaners extra time.
Come and stay at our Spotted Rock Cabin!
Hi, I am Jonathan..............
I love the area and our cabin and have enjoyed visiting it for over eight years. The cabin is like the perfect frontier cabin that our forefathers never had with all the modern conveniences and charm...
Being from Florida, the North Carolina mountains and this area specifically are akin to heaven for my family and I. No air-conditioning needed in the middle of summer (although the cabin has it)! Mild winters. The stars are bright at night. You can breathe easily, the temperature and air is crisp and the people in the neighborhood are so incredibly hospitable.
I love visiting the quaint local towns and cannot get enough of the scenic mountains, streams and waterfalls.
This is a good place to recharge, I do when I am here. There is plenty of room to hike and stroll right from the cabin door.
.............. Come and stay!
Location Location Location: there is a 'good for the soul' feeling about the place.
Solitude. You will have Rest & Relaxation here!
These are the remarks left by our guests in a page of the Spotted Rock Cabin guest book.

Durham & Efland NC:
Enjoyed great wine recommended by a sommelier in Brevard. Dinner at the Red Lion Inn was delicious (try the duck). Mary the waitress made us feel at home. Great hikes with the dogs - and the cabin is a great place to relax. The telescope enabled us to see Jupiter! A great weekend thanks!
If I could, I would try to convince the owner to sell me this sweet cabin with its two octagonal windows, Laura-Ingles-ish loft, tree-branch stair railings, cozy wood stove and view-packed balcony. I love this cabin. I loved the stained glass window. I loved the bathroom cabinet that pullls down like a tiny murphy bed. I loved that the cabin is dog-friendly but also clean - a rare combination. I also loved that the owner confined his detailed instructions in a handy email as well as a hard-copy booklet (in the cabin) rather than posting a zillion little instructional signs around the cabin as rentals often do. I also appreciated how helpful the customer-service savvy owner was when we unfortunately had car troubles during our stay. And I've never seen such a tidy basement. I really do want to live in this cabin forever. We did almost all the hikes the owner recommended in the booklet and loved them all especially the waterfall-packed hikes at DuPont State Forest. Thank you for giving me and my kids such a refreshing post-Christmas holiday break.
Enjoyed the cabin. Fantastic views. Very remote & quiet area. Great area for hikers. Lots of hiking trails (waterfalls are superb) in the surrounding areas. Enjoyed visiting nearby towns. Owner very easy to work with.
My wife and I love this place. Simple, rustic, and in a great location. Easy to relax and get away from the rat race for a few days. Especially enjoyed dinner and entertainment at the Red Lion Inn this time. Last trip we were unable to do that. Jonathan is a great host and communicates extremely well with his guests. We hit the fall color at just the right time, I think.
Close enough to all of the beautiful smokey mountain spots and Asheville, and a nice quiet solitude spot. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in the NC mountains.
This is a great cabin with all the necessities. Very clean and the perfect size for a couples' weekend away from the kids.
Located in the foothills of the Great Smoky Blue Mountains at 3000 feet in the Line Runner Ridge Community near Rosman, Brevard, Lake Toxaway, Highlands, Hendersonville, Cashiers, Pickens, Greenville and Asheville.
