Be sure to stop at Ingles Grocery on your way to the cabin to pick up your supplies. It's about a 10 minute trip. Try Zuma's in downtown Marshall for great deli along with mid-week entertainment. Hot Springs is about 20 minutes away with shops, restaurants and of course the hot mineral baths. Asheville is world-class special. Don't miss the Biltmore Estate or the Grove Park Inn along with great restaurants and people-watching downtown. The drum circle on Friday evenings is a must.

Other Things to Note
Cleanliness: The floors are all either hardwood or tile (no carpet). We launder the bedspreads, blankets and pillow shams before each visit, so pull the covers up under your chin.
Phone: There is limited or no ATT cell phone access at the cabin. Verizon and Sprint work OK. There is a house phone in case your cell phone does not work.
It is crucial that the garbage can be locked at all times. Bears are active in the area.
Feel free to smoke outside on the porch.
I have several rental properties across North Carolina that I own/manage, mainly corporate short-term rentals in the RTP area. I live in Asheville and work out of Cary, NC. My wife Joan and I manage the Mountain Log Cabin for her father. This lovely home was built as a family weekend retreat, but we just don't have the time to enjoy it - so we are sharing it with visitors to the area.
