Highwoods Cabin

Spring at Highwoods

Spring at Highwoods

Highwoods Cabin was developed to nurture your spirit and provide everything you will need for the ultimate relaxing retreat. It is ideal for a romantic getaway, a family reunion, or a tranquil retreat for groups up to eight.

This unique mountain cabin is nestled on the side of a mountain. It is situated on ten acres, about half of which is landscaped in a garden setting with three small ponds fed by an underground mountain spring and our very own hand-carved totem pole. The balance has been left in its natural state.

Curl up in front of the wood burning fireplace, sit on the deck with a good book, unwind in the hot tub; whatever your choice, treat yourself to the perfect escape.

You are ideally located for day trips to all of the many THINGS TO DO in Asheville and most everything else that Western North Carolina offers to visitors. We are located just 14 miles – about a 20-minute drive – from Asheville. Add another 5 minutes to get to the Biltmore Estate or the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Highwoods land protects the watershed for the extensive valleys below. You are surrounded by thousands of acres of magnificent wilderness, open fields and farmland where people smile and raise their hand to say hello as they pass, and are always there to lend a hand or tell you a good story.

If you like to hike, bike or take late afternoon strolls, the quiet roads and off-road trails will give you endless miles of choices.

The house is located at the top of our road and has THE VIEW that people come to the mountains for. Those glorious Blue Ridge Mountain views are enjoyed from most every room in the house, from the master bedroom’s luxurious king-size bed as well as from the kitchen sink. not to mention the expansive deck. For your more intimate moments you can snuggle up close to the mountain behind while soaking your stress away in the spa.
