Cabin sleeps three. Two in the loft in a queen size bed and one in the living room on a pull out futon chair.

Come and stay at Gwen’s Cozy Cabin. Our cabin is situated just outside of Rosman, NC nestled on Line Runner Ridge Lake in the mountains.

Great romantic setting for couples!

Our adorable log cabin is a 1 bedroom loft with a queen size bed and a full bath. It is 930 square feet of coziness, constructed of large logs which makes it very unique. Wake up and gaze out at the lake without getting out of bed or better yet, have breakfast in bed, it has a great view from the loft. Enjoy spending days around the cabin, we have fishing (catch and release only), two kayaks and one canoe for lazy trips around the lake. Go swimming right outside your front door to cool down. Bring your dog, there is a large fenced in back yard for hours of play time. Cook on our charcoal grill (charcoal included) and enjoy a great meal at the picnic table or on our large front porch. If you enjoy walking, walk on the many miles of roads on Line Runner Ridge, take a hike in the woods or around the lake. After a long day at the cabin, enjoy the fire pit in the back yard fixing smore's or grab a drink and take a relaxing bath in our old fashion claw foot bath tub with tee light candles. Play some good old fashion board games or just kick back and watch TV. The living room has an electric “old fashion stove” to set the mood. Our unique kitchen is filled with everything you need, from cooking a gourmet meal or just hot dogs, it comes complete with a gas stove and oven, microwave convection oven, coffee maker, coffee, tea pot with soothing tea, toaster oven and a dishwasher.

About Gwen C. Ristau

Welcome to Gwen's Cozy Cabin! I have finally retired to our dream home in North Carolina. We built this log cabin in 2000 for our enjoyment, now we want you to enjoy what we have for years, come and stay.

Gwen C. Ristau purchased this cabin in 2000

Why Gwen C. Ristau chose Brevard

We originally purchased this property to stay in while we visited the Brevard area. We fell in love with the area due to the beautiful weather and the majestic mountains. Our plans included retiring to this area, which we did!

What makes this cabin unique

We enjoy the log construction of the home with its unique location next to the lake in a very quite and friendly neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the lovely treats for Bill & I and Maggie. We love your beautiful cabin on a lake and we will share it’s amazing location & coziness with friends at home.

N.C. Mountain Shangri La

  • 5 of 5

Gwen's cabin is tranquility base in a serene setting. Having visited the area many times in the past, we wanted a place where we could rest and relax while enjoying the many outdoor activities in Pisgah, Dupont, and Brevard. The cabin is clean, well maintained, incredibly stocked, and pet friendly. There are two kayaks and a canoe at your disposal. You can fish for blue gill and bass from the shore or in the canoe, and kayak. The only thing you might hear in the morning is the sound of a bird or two singing. At night you can build a fire in the pit by the lake, and lounge by fire listening to a frog croak or fish splash; or, just sit on the porch with a glass of wine and star gaze. We were lucky enough to see fireflies at night. All in all, the cabin is a great home away from home. We enjoyed our stay, and look forward to future visits.

If you are looking for the perfect mountain getaway for two (and maybe a furry friend), this is it!

  • 5 of 5

Gwen's Cozy Cabin is an artfully appointed romantic getaway. From the loft bedroom to the claw foot tub, it is just perfect. Outside, there is a great back porch area that runs the width of the house and overlooks the lake. There is a large, fenced-in backyard which was perfect for our 2 dogs! There are kayaks and a canoe, and fishing poles for your use. My husband had great luck with bread balls as bait, fishing at twilight. He pulled in half a dozen catfish during our week's stay.

Gwen is readily available if anything should come up during your stay. During some torrential rain, the power in the cabin went out. Immediately and automatically, the generator kicked in, and moments later, Gwen called on the house phone to give us the update from the electric company! She is also incredibly thoughtful in personalizing your stay. It was our anniversary, and we were greeted by an anniversary banner and welcome basket full of goodies for both us and our dogs.

The towns of Brevard and Hendersonville with all their charming shops, along with all of the nearby state and national forests offered plenty to keep us busy. And oh, the waterfalls! We drove the Blue Ridge Parkway Loop one day, stopping along the way to marvel at the breath-taking views. Another day we drove to the Carl Sandburg House in Flat Rock, which I would highly recommend.

All and all, our stay at Gwen's Cozy Cabin was everything we had hoped for and more! Two thumbs up!

The Perfect Restful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Gwen's Cozy Cabin and it was a wonderful experience. The cabin was immaculately clean and well stocked with all the essentials- even dog dishes and a cozy bed for our 2 little dogs! We arrived to a wonderful welcome gift basket, which was such a warm and thoughtful touch. We have rented many properties on home away and this one was by far our favorite. It is the perfect restful retreat where you can go exploring, hiking and waterfall hunting by day then return to enjoy a peaceful evening on the porch. We hope to return again many times!

We fell in love with Gwen's Cozy Cabin the moment we walked through the door. She takes great pride in her meticulously decorated cabin and her attention to detail is second to none. There was a gift basket of goodies with welcoming and celebratory notes for us as well as our fur babies, Joanna and Prissy … there were even notes and treats on the bed. Gwen’s cabin is by far the cleanest pet-friendly place we’ve ever stayed in.

Gwen created a whole scrapbook of suggestions for local restaurants and things to do, but we were so relaxed that we only ventured into town on the last day of our stay. We loved our lunch at The Square Root in Brevard. Loved walking through the little shops.

The property is wonderful for dogs to run free in the well-secured fenced in back yard with a gated porch, poop bags, dog towels, large dog bed inside and doggie dishes!

Thank you Gwen for sharing your little bit of paradise with us!!!!

Ken, Val, Prissy and Joanna

Ideal Getaway for Dog Lover's

  • 5 of 5

We don't travel without our dogs & this place was perfect. The cozy cabin had everything promised & more. We arrived to a crisp, clean home & found a lovely gift basket with snacks for us & our dogs, Dash & George. The cabin is beautifully decorated with natural wood furniture, ceiling fans, & rustic artwork. Everything we needed was provided & obviously hand picked by the owner, not just a real estate agency...lush towels, good quality kitchen utensils & stoneware, cozy dog bed, coffee, fishing poles rigged, canoes & paddles ready to go, fire pit with wood & marshmallow skewers at the ready, charcoal grill with all items needed to cook, games & television. There were even lotions, shampoos, & more provided that we did not expect. The large fenced in yard right on the lake is well manicured & fairly flat. We could let the dogs run freely without any worries & see them easily from the spacious deck of the house. We took day trips, shopped in Brevard NC, fished, laughed, but mostly relaxed. It was wonderful! As we drove away from the small town of Rosman NC, we spotted one of the local white squirrels we had heard so much about & were able to stop & get photographs. It was a terrific way to finalize the trip! Thank you Gwen Ristau for having us!
