If you have been looking for the perfect log cabin rental in the Hot Springs and Asheville area, YOU HAVE FOUND IT!!! Our mountain getaway is surrounded by the Pisgah National Forest. The French Broad River flows right below the small bluff on which we perch overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, and you have private access to the river! (Paint Rock Cabin does NOT have an open view to the river. You can see the river in places, especially during Winter months, but we have chosen to keep hidden from the River Road traffic).We are a 6-mile, flat, straight, scenic drive along the river to the town of Hot Springs. Three miles are pavement, three miles gravel. The drive to Asheville is an easy, 45 minutes of beautiful mountain farm land scenery. This is not a sterile vacation rental; this log cabin is filled with unique finishing touches designed to give you a true North Carolina mountain getaway experience.
Enjoy a sunny deck or a screened porch with fans as you relax in the privacy Paint Rock Cabin offers. Linens and kitchenware are provided, and well-behaved pets are welcome to enjoy the mountains. The master bedroom offers a Queen sized bed and a Jacuzzi Tub, while the downstairs room offers two daybeds with trundles that can be configured in multiple ways, including 4 twins or two kings or the kid favorite, Giant Super Bed. Terraced garden beds are wonderfully landscaped with different flowers blooming throughout the growing season. A fire pit is located in the woods, and a hammock always begs for a breezy nap.
Our private access to the river includes 5 acres of shoreland where you can peacefully enjoy our calm French Broad river pool. This is the perfect location to bring your fishing rod and picnic, build a fire, and enjoy a slower pace everybody deserves. You can also easily launch a river vessel here to enjoy the casual flow of the river. Kayaks, rafts, tubes, and canoes all work well in the French Broad and make for perfect afternoon fun.
WHERE ARE WE IN RELATION TO DOWNTOWN HOT SPRINGS? We are on the "Marshall/Weaverville" side of the Hot Springs bridge- turn AT THE FRENCH BROAD RIVER BRIDGE onto RIVER ROAD and find us 6 miles downriver.
Downtown Hot Springs to Paint Rock Cabin is 6 miles downriver and will take you 10 minutes to drive. The drive is 3 miles of pavement and 3 miles of gravel through the protected bio-diverse section of River Rd. This is a flat, straight (a few slight curves) and scenic drive that follows the French Broad River downriver into TN. You will see our cabin sign on the right side of River Rd at the 6-mile point. Our shared river-access land is 1/4 mile beyond our driveway at the red park-like gate marked River Road Retreat Homeowners Association (on the left side of River Road). You are free to walk in or drive your car in with our gate access code and utilize the pavilion, fire circle, and outhouse there.

Hot Springs is again attracting visitors from all over the United States and beyond, and not just for the 108-degree mineral water. Nestled in the heart of Pisgah National Forest, the town is located at the crossroads of two of the most important outdoor resources in western N.C.: the Appalachian Trail and the French Broad River." And, "Hot Springs is also gaining a reputation as a romantic weekend and wedding spot. With accommodations ranging from $15 campsites to plush lodges in the several-hundred-a-night category, there is something for everyone right within the town limits.
