Fireplace is easy to turn on. Sunroom area with spa was my favorite of the entire cabins. Also Alyssa and Brian’s response time to anything we needed in a matter of mins. This place will definitely be a repeat.” – Tina, October 2020

We enjoyed the nice ambiance and especially the outdoor patio and big window in the trees. Our hosts gave clear instructions for check in and check out and we had no problems! The only thing is that there isn’t a TV (but you don’t really need that when you have the beautiful trees and access to fun Asheville around the corner!) Would definitely recommend and would stay here again.” – Phillip, September 2020

Guest review: “Mae’s cabin was perfect! The cabin was super clean and offered all the little touches that made our stay wonderful. We loved the outdoor covered deck with sofa and fireplace, we spent the most time out there at night. The sound of the nearby creek while relaxing by the fire was exactly the peace we were looking for.

There are three cabins on the property but each cabin has been situated on the site to provide privacy from each other. The cabin was a quick drive to downtown Asheville. We wish we had more time to enjoy some of the nearby hiking trails…next time! When we come back to Asheville we will be looking to rent here again!” – Matthew, September 2020

The RhodoDen Airstream Glamping

This 27 foot 1974 Airstream is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Set along a trickling creek this glamping spot is great for those who want to relax, and have a basecamp for their hiking adventures in the Black Mountain.

Inside is a hand-picked record collection, a lending book library, and a small selection of classic DVDs. Fire up the heater in the winter for a cozy night in, or start a campfire along the creek and roast marshmallows.

Guest review: “The RhodoDen is absolutely adorable! The place was clean and had everything we needed. We didn’t cook on site but they have all the amenities to do so whether over the fire or on the little hot plate. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and by the fire under the outside string lights and we strung our hammocks up between the trees 🙂 Our pup also thoroughly enjoyed the amount of space, the little stream, and exploring the woods.

We appreciated the fence, there was plenty of privacy, even though there are 2 houses pretty close to the RhodoDen on the same driveway. We did one of the hikes suggested in the house manual and absolutely loved it (DuPont State Forest, highly recommend!!). It’s an easy 25ish minute drive to downtown Asheville, perfect location! 10/10 would stay again” – Madison, September 2020

So many thoughtful touches — colored pencils and sketch pad, both a children’s and adults bookshelves (great selection!!), the sock monkeys (a huge hit with our two-year-old), extra iPhone cables (we forgot one), soft towels, a stocked pantry with staples, wonderful hot tub, stylish amenities… the list goes on! And it was CLEAN. I am a bit crazy about things being very clean, and it did not disappoint. Really, really well done. Do not hesitate to book this place, a short drive from so many great spots” – Emily, October 2020
