What activities are there in the area for us to enjoy?
This area is popular for many outdoor activities such as whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing, hiking, fishing, horseback riding, sightseeing. You won’t be bored here unless you want to be, and for some folks that’s exactly why they come here… kickback, relax and do little to nothing! Check our Activites page for more info!
What is the weather like in the different seasons?
Generally, our seasons offer comfortable temperatures. Although it may be hot in the summer, evenings cool off… you may be very content with the windows open feeling the cool mountain air. Fall is a very popular season here because of the changing of the leaves. It usually produces a variety of beautiful colors, and the temperature is cooler. Winter can be mild with no snow, to a few inches of snow. It’s a beautiful sight with snow covered trees and mountains. Usually the snow is gone within a few days (locations may vary depending on elevation and sun exposure). You should plan to dress appropriately for the season but be prepared with a sweater, jacket for spring/summer/fall evenings.
Do we need a 4 wheel drive vehicle in winter?
Our cabins are accessible year-round; however, as previously mentioned, winter weather can be unpredictable. If there is snow and icy conditions a 4-wheel drive vehicle and/or chains may be necessary. If you’re planning a trip here in the winter it’s best to monitor the weather closely.
Where is the nearest grocery store?
Limited grocery items are available the Trust General Store and Café in Trust NC (4 miles south of cabins) or the Dollar General and Hill Billy Market both in Hot Springs NC (10 north of cabins); however, the nearest full service grocery store (Ingles Market, Publix, or Earth Fare) is 45 minutes to 1 hour away, so you definitely want to plan ahead.
We may want a glass of wine or a beer. Can we purchase it in the area?
Our cabins are located in Madison County which is a dry county. However, beer and wine is available by the glass at the restaurants and stores in the towns of Hot Springs, Marshall, Mars Hill, and Weaverville. You may also purchase beer, wine, and liquor in larger towns/cities such as Asheville, Waynesville, and Maggie Valley. Of course, you are welcome to bring your own.
You charge a cleaning fee; are we expected to clean prior to checking-out?
We hope that our guests will respect our property and are considerate while they visit. Our cleaning staff will remove trash and do the overall cleaning of the cabin. If you accumulate more trash than the garbage can will accommodate the closest trash facility is 3 miles south on NC Hwy 209 behind the Spring Creek Community Center on the left. They are open Monday/Wednesday/Friday/Saturday; you may dispose of it there. Before you check-out, we ask that you wash the dishes, flatware, glasses, and pots & pans you used and put them away, leave the bed unmade, and place all used towels in the shower or hamper.
Sure would be nice to hunt in the mountains. Can we hunt at your cabins?
No hunting or discharging of firearms is permitted on our property. If you want to have a hunting experience in the nearby area, visit Fowler Farms Sporting Clays.
