Our little 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.
With views facing west, watch the sun set from the deck while relaxing in our rocking chairs and sipping 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. The cabin with its two compulsory mounted deer heads looking over the living room will feel like your home 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.
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.
The cabin can be reached in a regular car, is fully stocked, just bring your food, wine, laptop and clothes! You will find wine glasses, a telescope, tea kettle, bread maker, our TV with netflix, roku and chromecasting, washer/dryer......basically all that you need to bum it in the mountains on a rainy day, or stay for a few weeks!
See the Area
Shop for antiques or groceries in Brevard 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 half a mile.
See the spectacular mountain meadow waterfall within two miles of your cabin. ( We will give you a sight-seeing guide when you book our rental cabin ).
Go on Day-Trips
The Transylvania county / Brevard / 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 the 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 from the cabin) 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 your cabin) down the French Broad or Davidson Rivers....
Visit Asheville (1 hour from the cabin) 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 the 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.
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 from your Spotted Rock Rental Cabin), 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 the cabin)....yes, with all that nagging, it's a day trip!
Take a tour of the Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute (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 while 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 your 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 stay in the Spotted Rock Cabin is easy, if the calendar shows it is free, simply book online! Let me know if you have any pets as there is a small, additional cleaning fee if you do, and if you have kids under five, we need to ensure their safety on the stairs and loft. Check in is usually after 3pm, and check out is 10am. We will supply a gate clicker to pass through the security gate, and will give you our day-trips, hikes and waterfalls, restaurant and Cabin manuals to help you get the most out of your stay.

My mom and I stayed at the cabin and had a great time. We brought our two dogs along and they enjoyed romping in the wooded areas and trails near the cabin. The owner provides fabulous info about the area including locations for waterfalls, state parks, and nearby towns and restaurants. The cabin was in great shape and accommodated two people and two dogs just fine. There is a LONG gravel drive up to the cabin so be prepared for that. We visited nearby Brevard and Dupont State Park. Brevard has a charming downtown and is dog friendly. Dupont had some fabulous waterfalls and trails for beginning hikers. The nearby roads are also very scenic, especially when the leaves are changing!
