There is so much to love about this Hendersonville, North Carolina, 1-bedroom wood cabin. This newly built mountain cottage is nestled in the woods with all you need for a cozy getaway to Western North Carolina. The cabin can accommodate up to 2 guests with 1 bedroom, 2 beds, and 1 bath. The vacation property is located next to DuPont State Forest which is so close you can hear the waterfalls from the front door. The cabin is close to world-class mountain biking and hiking just half a mile away. The Lake Imaging parking lot is 0.5 miles, Hooker Falls is 0.9 miles. It is conveniently located only 15 minutes from both Brevard and Hendersonville where wonderful restaurants and activities can be explored.
This little cabin building started as a bathhouse that used to house the shower facilities for a campground that hosted horseback riders, mountain bikers, and hikers that frequented Dupont State Forest. After the owners bought the property and built their home which is also on the property, they started planning to turn the bathhouse into a cabin where they could host friends, family, and anyone interested in visiting this wonderful area.
The cabin building is located on the property on which the owners also reside, and is accessed via a gravel driveway that passes their house and takes you through the woods to the cabin. The driveway passes the neighbors' barn, so please drive slowly (7MPH). The entire house is yours for the duration of your vacation stay. Only two guests with one vehicle are allowed on the vacation property at all times, with absolutely no additional individuals, vehicles, or pets allowed for any period.
