Take a day to enjoy these great natural areas or Asheville’s excellent restaurants and breweries. You can also stay close to home walking out the front door for a hike or venturing a mile down the road for drinks, dining and live, local music at the Straightaway Café.

The property features a one bedroom, one bath cabin that can accommodate up to four people. Rates are based on double occupancy. There is a three night minimum stay. Pets or additional occupants may incur additional charges.

About Ed and Chrissy Kizer

Chrissy, Elyse and I live in Asheville and love the natural beauty, outdoor activities, culture and people of Western North Carolina. As a special education teacher and professional counselor with modest incomes we needed an alternative way to invest our time, talent, and resources. Retreat at Miller Cove reflects our appreciation for nature, simplicity and solitude.

Ed and Chrissy Kizer purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Ed and Chrissy Kizer chose Asheville Area

We knew the minute we arrived at the property it was ideal for our vision of an investment property / vacation rental home and personal getaway. Pictures just don't do it justice. We feel the solitude it offers makes it ideal for those wanting to get away to just relax or to deepen their spiritual life. To that end, we are planning to continue to develop the property as a spiritual retreat adding outdoor spaces for yoga and meditation, converting the shed to a practice studio and adding a wood fired hot tub.

What makes this cabin unique

It's almost impossible not to feel a great sense of solitude and being "away from it all" at Miller Cove. It's very rare to hear or see anyone on the neighboring properties and the road in, although it may be intimidating to some, only enhances the feeling of being further out in nature. If natural beauty and privacy are what you seek, you won't be disappointed!

Beatutiful Property - Love It

  • 5 of 5

We loved the secluded cabin. There are homes around the cabin, but you can't see them and only rarely hear another car coming or going. I enjoyed my coffee in the mornings on the porch listening to the nearby creek. The Japanese soaking tub was nice too. The tub took an initial three hours to heat, so patience is needed, but after the first heating it maintained the heat and was quick to warm up to temperature. Plenty of firewood was provided. The road to the cabin wasn't as bad as expected. We took my husband's SUV, but believe a mid-sized car would make it fine. My compact car would have scrapped in the creeks as it sits so low to the ground. There is one hairpin curve up up by the cabin that you have drive aggressively to make the corner without backing up. If you have Verizon, then you shouldn't have issues with service. We loved this cabin and enjoyed our stay. Would love to come back and stay again!

Vacation Retreat

  • 5 of 5

And what a retreat it was. Drove from New York and really didn't know what to expect. The pictures didn't do justice to the property. What you couldn't see in the pictures was the peaceful, quiet, and the sound of a babbling brook. All this made for a romantic hide-away. We hiked the road up the mountain and down the road to the stream. We took someone's advice and walked barefoot in the stream that crossed the road. The evenings were spent in front of the fire pit, we forgot the marsh mellows. We didn't use the hot tub (being from New York if it doesn't have an on-off switch I'm lost). Will definitely rent this beautiful hide away again. PS the road and driveway was not as difficult as I thought, just don't drive a sports car to the property. The outdoor shower was refreshing and coffee in the morning on the rocking chairs just added to the secluded retreat. Thank you Ed and Cindy. What a wonderful place

This place was absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here on a long weekend to the Asheville area. It's secluded and peaceful, and the owners did a great job making it feel like the mountain retreat it is. So many little thoughtful details were supplied. We will definitely be back!

Perfect relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This was truly a great experience! We didn't quite know what we were getting ourselves into when turning on to Miller Cove Rd, but driving over the 2 creeks adds to the adventure. By the end of your stay, you're a mountain driving pro. I would highly highly recommend AWD or 4WD, though. The cabin has everything that you need and it feels like a little bit of luxury in the middle of the woods. Definitely take advantage of the outdoor shower and the rocking chairs. It's perfectly located to Black Mountain, Asheville, and Chimney Rock, but still feels like you're away from it all. We would love to come again!

Very nice mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Miller's Cove! It was the perfect size for my husband and I and our 2 dogs. The property is beautiful and very well maintained. There was room for our dogs to run outside, and we enjoyed the fire pit and hot tub. Inside, the cabin had been updated and was very comfortable. We truly felt away from it all at Miller's Cove, but the attractions in Black Moutain and Asheville were a short (although very curvy) drive away. Overall, it was a great trip and a great place to stay!

Beautiful Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this lovely cabin a few months ago and absolutely loved it! It's exactly as pictured and described. We enjoyed the Japanese soaking tub on the outdoor deck every night along with the fire pit. There is excellent hiking nearby just steps down the road without having to drive anywhere! Everything we needed was right there and the kitchen was well stocked with spices, olive oil, honey, and teas, etc. Grilled out every night and rarely left the seclusion of the cabin/property except to hike the wonderful trails nearby with our dog Jake. Convenient to the town of Black Mountain. Highly recommend and will definitely return!
