About the property

Secluded 2 BR 1 1/5 BA Cabin on Mountain Stream

Your mountain retreat awaits. Nestled at 3,000 feet in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina close to the Appalachian Trail, Spillcorn Falls offers 110 private, forested acres to explore. The 2 bedroom, 11/2 bath modern cabin sits aside a trout-stocked stream. The sound of the multiple cascading waterfalls provides a soothing backdrop to your stay.

Spillcorn Falls affords seclusion (20 minutes to Hot Springs) while providing access to some of the most beautiful scenery of the region. Within 30 minutes you’ll find multiple excursion options: horseback trail riding, kayaking on the French Broad River, hiking the AT or fishing nearby streams.

A perfect spot for a romantic getaway, a quiet vacation, or a comfortable post to explore the beautiful mountain surroundings.

About Eleanor

We built this secluded cabin to enjoy the fresh mountain air and breathtaking beauty of western North Carolina. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of more harried city environs provides an important life affirming respite for us. We hope you enjoy Spillcorn Falls as much as we do!

Eleanor purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Eleanor chose Marshall

Growing up in Eastern Tennessee means you are never far from the mountains. I had this property for over a decade before I finally took the step to build the cabin. Nothing fancy, but a comfortable spot to be nestled to enjoy the surroundings.

What makes this cabin unique

The front porch is our favorite place to hang out. A quiet nap on the daybed after a day of hiking or gathering for a drink before dinner, everyone gravitates there. No wonder-the magic sound of the falls makes you feel you are right in the middle of nature. And you are!

Beautiful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying here over the Thanksgiving holiday! The property is peaceful and expansive. The trout stream and falls gave our 6-year-old plenty of places to explore, and the home itself was lovely and well-appointed. We also enjoyed hiking some of the Appalachian Trail and Horseback riding while we were visiting. The owners were responsive during the booking process and the caretaker checked on us to make sure we were enjoying our stay - how nice! We will certainly return!

Peace and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

Our 2nd year spending time here. Very relaxing with the sounds of the stream rushing over the rocks, making a fire by the stream and roasting marshmallows. Raymond and Linda are fantastic caretakers of the property and made us feel very much at home..... again. Loved hiking in the area and watching the leaves on the trees change colors over our 13 day visit.

We look forward to another visit or 2 next year(God willing) and hope to have some of our children and grandchildren visit and experience the peace and tranquility of Spillcorn.

Wonderful Place.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I so enjoyed our time at this cabin that even two weeks later, my husband is still taking about how peaceful it was and how much he loves it there. The place is very clean, well furnished and quite comfortable. The sound of the rushing water in the creek below makes a beautiful background noise. We can't wait to go back again someday.

Beautiful & Secluded

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay as the property is very secluded and private, hard to find in many rentals. We walked the long driveway each night after dinner, sat by the creek for lunch and lit a fire in the evening. It's amazing how bright the stars are at night when your away from the city. The creek was fantastic, soothing to hear. The house was modern, new, immaculate and very well decorated. The huge screened in patio was a favorite for working on our computers while listening to the sounds of nature-- much nicer than being in an office! We felt at home for sure. Asheville is close by and so is everything you need. We stayed for a week to escape hurricane Irma in Florida. We will definitely return. The owners are also very responsive.

Our family of 5 had a fantastic stay at Spillcorn Falls.

  • 5 of 5

The property was a great place to stay with our kids ages 2, 5, and 8. They played for hours in the creek, chased the butterflies, and ran in the meadow flying airplanes. We ate by the campfire, roasted marshmallows, and played games on the screened in porch. The house is very tastefully decorated. Everything is well thought out and extremely comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would plan on renting this property again.
