Located on a private, secluded 120 acre farm, by a clear mountain stream stocked with trout for your fishing enjoyment, this cabin offers the perfect retreat for any family.  This cozy cabin is located in the Western NC mountains surrounded by Pisgah National Forest, just off the  Appalachian trail near Lemon Gap and  Max Patch. It is just down the road from a famous motorcycle ride known as "The Rattler" on  Hwy 209. This is the perfect place to explore the Great Smokey Mountain National Park which is an easy drive for a day excursion.

Wild flower enthusiasts will love exploring the woods surrounding the cabins. There are many beautiful and rare species of flowers blooming from early Spring to late Autumn. We have been fortunate enough to spot showy orchids, trillium, wild geranium, tiger lily, jack in the pulpit, lady slipper, lily of the valley just to name a few.  Early Spring also brings Dogwood blossoms and Wild Azaleas in abundance.The Rhododendron are particularly spectacular in the late Spring as they flourish along our creeks and cover the hillsides with pinks and whites. It seems that almost every day from April to late October, something new is blooming in these beautiful mountains.
Bird lovers will be thrilled to find that we are a major migration route for many songbirds and butterflies.  We have a huge population of hummingbirds. A very thrilling site is the Indigo buntings who visit our area in the Spring. They flash an incredible incandescent blue when they fly by. We have birds such as the  nuthatch, towhee, cardinal, oriole,wrens, hawks and many others. We also have many yellow finches and purple finches. 

So, on your next vacation, family reunion, friends retreat, wedding, anniversary, birthday celebration,  or romantic getaway, come to the mountains of Madison County, NC and  discover what makes Appalcahia such a great place to relax and rejuvenate your Spirit.  Allow yourself time to soak in the Jacuzzi on the front porch, or rock in the rockers. Take a walk or wet a fishing line.  Discover the peace of a  mountain retreat.  It's good for the Soul.
