Hidden gem nestled on a mountain
The owners could not have been more hospitable. We made a decision the day of to come, and they welcomed us as we pulled up, making sure everything was sound. The property is magical. The lookout at the top of the mountain is outstanding with tons of land to roam just within their property itself - not to mention it's ideally located off of the blue ridge parkway which give you access to the most incredible hikes and viewpoints. We drove a short hour drive into Asheville for one afternoon but could've stayed up on the mountain forever. We hiked mount Mitchell, craggy gardens, linville falls and Crabtree falls. We wish we had more time because the options and beauty are endless. The blue cabin is very quaint and has all of the basic necessities. No cell phone and no tv but having wifi was a nice touch so that we could stay in touch with home but not be too dependent. You don't need any of that anyway with the mountains around you. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for a nice vacation away into nature and beautiful views.
