Perks for the Parents

This sunny log cabin, 12 miles from Asheville, is a great location for an outdoor vacation with the kids, complete with a woodstove fire for cozy nights, and 38 acres of land to explore. Located on the south slope of Burney Mountain in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, the chalet is a spacious, sunny log cabin with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, surrounded by hardwood forest. Wild turkeys rustle the fallen leaves in winter and lead their young in spring. An abundance of birds and other wildlife can be spotted from the sunny porches. The natural oasis is walking distance to the local pizza place, and the closest large grocery store is less than 4 miles away. ​Parents will enjoy the separate master suite with jetted tub and access to a covered porch for a private morning coffee.

Why Kids Love it

Children of all ages enjoy staying at the chalet - it is a real log cabin in the woods with opportunities for outdoor exploration, campfires and games in front of the woodstove fire. Kids will love the bunk room or sleeping loft, both with full bathrooms. Toys, books and games are provided in the bunkroom as well as black-out curtains for naptime. A pack’n’play, high chair, booster seat, baby phone, outlet covers, stair gates, children's cutlery and plates, and kids movies are available.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights November-May, 3 nights June-October. The home is on 38 wooded acres. Children must be supervised when roaming the property - there is wildlife and some steep drop offs. There is a gate on the stairs leading down from the deck to prevent children (and pets) from going down to the yard. Internal stairs can be gated on request. The hosts welcome events, groups, gatherings of family and friends as well as your pets (welcome for a $40 fee, on application).

About the Location

The residence is 12 miles from downtown Asheville, NC. This area has a lot to offer to visitors of all ages: kids will enjoy the various water activities in the summer, including tubing, whitewater rafting, and sliding rock, while ziplining, waterfall hikes, climbing chimney rock, horseback riding and more are fun all year round. Fall is gorgeous with turning leaves, and spring is pretty with the forest coming back to live. Winter is also magical with winter lights at the Arboretum and the Biltmore Estate decorated for Christmas. Downtown Asheville is great fun with lots of restaurants, ice cream shops and even a once-a-week drum circle. The closest major airport is Charlotte Douglas International Airport, 120 miles away, with Tri Cities and Greenville airports within an hour's drive. Asheville regional airport is 15 minutes away.

Accommodation Details

The property has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms: a master bedroom with queensize bed, private bathroom and access to a covered porch, a sleeping loft with queensize bed and private bathroom, and a bunk room with 2 bunk beds (4 twin beds) with adjacent bathroom. Bathrooms include tubs and showers There is a fully equipped kitchen, a dining room with attached dining porch and living room with a Morso wood-burning stove. There is a large south-facing deck to soak up the sun as well as a paved fire pit area for making campfires and s'mores.

Style Notes

Modern cabin. The chalet is a newly built sunny log cabin with clean lines and an uncluttered feel. Natural materials, solid pine wood and leather, freshly pressed cotton sheets on the beds harmonize with the natural setting of the cabin. We love the mountain views, soaring ceilings and pretty bedrooms.

After living or owning properties in Germany, the Philippines, Hawaii, Manhattan, Croton-on-Hudson, and Raleigh, we chose the Asheville area to raise our three children. We love the cultural and natural richness of this place. The mountains, forests, ecological diversity, waterfalls and the local food movement, farms and markets, outstanding restaurants, cultural events and interesting, friendly people make this a great place to live and visit. We decided to build the Chalet and the Cottage at Winghaven so we can welcome people to this amazing area that we enjoy so very much. We live just about ten minutes away from Winghaven, on a small farm with dairy goats, rare breed chickens, ducks, geese and dogs. Please visit us on the web at Of course we would also be delighted to have you come in person and visit with the animals during your stay at Winghaven! Naturally, we will always have fresh eggs from our happy hens as well as handmade goat's milk soap for you at Winghaven.

We had a wonderful stay at the chalet at Windhaven! It was the perfect retreat which still allowed us to explore the surrounding area. Saskia was incredibly responsive, and we loved visiting her farm!

The Chalet was absolutely perfect for our stay with our small children and black lab. The house was very clean and had everything we needed: toys, high chair, baby gates, monitor, and more! Even our dog felt welcome with dog bowls and treats provided. All of the furnishings were kid friendly and we appreciated having 2 bathtubs, outdoor dining, and the most cozy beds we've ever slept in during a holiday. The kitchen was well stocked as well with numerous spices, oil, and baked goods and there was even a stand mixer to make cookies!

This residence was a beautiful place to stay! Secluded up in the mountains it was a great get away. The interior of the cabin was gorgeous and had plenty of space for our two kids to roam about and play. It was also nice and secluded and away from any commotion. It was an easy drive into the various neighboring cities where we could spend time. This was a great stay! The hosts were prompt communicators and the residence had everything we needed with two little ones. I'd highly recommend!

Beautiful log cabin in the woods with the perfect setting. Saskia is incredibly responsive and easy to communicate with. We had everything we needed for our toddler and our older kids. I can’t recommend enough and would love to stay again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Winghaven Drive Residence. We built a fire every night and roasted marshmallows. My kids loved it! There is a dollar general 5 minutes away(drive) if you need to pick up anything during your stay. The cabin had wonderful views, perfect for drinking coffee on the porch in the morning!

I was part of a group of four adults and three boys (4,7, and 7) who absolutely loved our stay. The home has everything you need plus lovely touches like fresh cut soap for each guest. It was sparking clean and we ran into zero issues across our 3 nights. We highly recommended staying here when visiting this beautiful part of North Carolina.

Fletcher, North Carolina

Mountains, swimming holes and the great outdoors

Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina, Fletcher is between Asheville and Hendersonville and is a great location for exploring the Appalacian Trail, taking a dip in swimming holes in the summer, and enjoying the great outdoors. Don't miss the impressive Biltmore Estate, where you can pretend to be a millionaire for the day.
