My husband and I wanted to take our kids (ages 5 & 8) on a weekend trip for fall break. The Mars Hill/ Marshall area of NC is in such a good location. We took a quick hour trip down the road to Sky Top Orchard one day and then explored a little closer to the cabin. We also took a quick hour trip to Tennessee the next day and explored there. We absolutely loved the cabin. Everything at the cabin was clean and everything we needed was there! The beds were very comfortable. The kids brought their scooters and were able to ride them on the flat parking area next to the house while we cooked supper. They attempted to ride them up the driveway, but quickly realized it was too steep. As we were packing up and leaving, one of my kids asked when we could come back. We will definitely stay here again!

The cabin appears brand new, very private, clean, comfortable beds! There are beautiful fairy lights in the window and on the deck. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend and would definitely book again!

From the owner: "Thank you for your review! And thank you so much for staying with us. We are very happy you enjoyed our little slice of heaven."
We came up to Mars Hill, NC for our family spring break trip, to get some peace of mind away from it all - but still wanted to be close to Asheville.
This cabin was the perfect choice!
The ride was about 10 minutes away from the local university. Tucked away on a hillside, we pulled up to the road leading to the cabin (almost missed it).
As we went up the road, we saw the cabin - and were pleasantly surpised.
We pulled up and hopped out of our SUV, looking forward to getting inside and relaxing after a very long drive. The entry information was exactly as the host described, and we were inside in no time.
When we got inside we noticed how nicely the place was decorated, and that it was definitely bigger than we expected! We checked out all the rooms and upon noticing how clean everything was, felt like we were home away from home.
The couch was cozy and comfortable, as were the beds. The 2nd bedroom was bigger than expected, and we were also grateful for the master bedroom having a separate bathroom of its own.
We had to work for much of our trip, and at first I was worried as it didn't have a dedicated office. In the end, we were able to work very comfortably from the living room and dining room area.
The outside balcony was massive, and what an amazing view of the stars at night..without any neighbors or noises to bother us.
It was quiet, comfy, and had great vibes. We will definitely stay up at this property again.
What a wonderful cozy place! All the small details makes it very homey, and the view is breathtaking!
Initially I was nervous about the seclusion and having to work remotely while staying here. Getting here was a dream, the road is fabulous! The internet was more than adequate for my work.
The fact that we had acres of land to ourselves, the fireflies around the campfire and stream, made us feel like we were living in a magical fairy world in the woods!
We will absolutely be staying here again!
