Our beautiful cabin has two stories with loft sleeping, a wraparound porch and a private balcony off the upstairs bedroom. Sleeps up to five people.
One king size bed and a day bed are upstairs. There is a lovely sitting area upstairs with windows for wonderful views all around.
Downstairs there is a kitchen full of amenities, stacked washer/dryer, dining table, futon and cozy sitting area. Also downstairs are an HDTV and bluray player. Phone service (landline-unlimited US calling) is available as well.
Treat yourself to a cozy bath with hot water on the deck outside in the clawfoot tub (may not be available during winter months).
Our cabin is in a truly beautiful location on the hillside overlooking the small hollow below. We offer over 60 acres of beautiful, private-access, mountain property for your enjoyment. There are nearly three miles of hiking trails. Enjoy easy and private access from one of two trailheads. Signs are also placed along the different paths to guide your way. If you like hiking in the mountains while listening to birds and other sounds of nature, you will love our trails. These grass bed trails are rustic and maintained monthly to remove any fallen limbs and provide a 5-6 foot wide path for hiking. They range in difficulty from level to steep to moderate. Bring some good hiking shoes, step out into nature and enjoy a beautiful slice of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
We take great pride in offering a comfortable, clean, and private experience for our guests. We hope you enjoy your stay at Berry Cabin!

Our stay at Wild Harmony was motivated by our college aged daughter who wanted to see Mom and Dad as well as enjoy some off campus time with her friends from school. This amazing mountain hideaway was a perfect solution for all. We brought the "kids" to Wild Harmony Farm from the airport in Charlotte (about 2 1/2 hours away) and gave them the choice of the Cottage or the Cabin (we got both, this a great situation for families with adult kids, wedding groups and so forth). The four of them immediately chose the Cabin for it's fun layout and rustic/hip charm. Situated on a wooded rise over looking the hollow wherein the Cottage is placed, the Cabin is inconspicuous even in March with the trees just beginning to bud. An excellent place for a romantic getaway or for a small family to get a taste of WNC. Located back in the wooded mountains near Marshall NC the farm is remote yet easily accessible. The drive up to the property may appear daunting but have no fear, we managed the roads and drive up to the house in our Kia Soul even after a long rainy day. As for the young folk they enjoyed the excellent hiking trails that lace the 62 acre property and even Dad was able to make the mile climb to Berry Knob a couple of times. Naturally, the young ladies felt the call of urban life every now and again and took off to Asheville to get in on some craft brew and local entertainment. Asheville is about a thirty minute drive. And while on the topic of craft brew and music, we all enjoyed some bluegrass jams in the little town of Marshall which is only about ten minutes away. Marshall is also home to some fun shops and a large grocery store where we stopped to supply the kitchen and stock up on local beers. The real magic of this place, however, lies in the amazing outdoors which surrounds one on all sides. There are trail rides and raft rentals, literally hundreds of miles of hiking trails and fishing opportunities galore. For example, the Laurel River is thirty minutes away and has an easy meandering trail as well as trout and bass. The girls hiked while Dad stopped here and there to shoot photos and throw lures into the rushing waters. Excellent birding is to be had right on Wild Harmony as it is a sanctuary. Grouse, pileated woodpeckers and towhees are just a few "new birds" that caught the eye of this Kansas native. One drives Little Pine Rd right along the French Broad River to get to Caney Fork so each can bear frequent witness to the beauty of this waterway which geologically speaking is the third oldest river on Earth. Night or day, in or out, country or city, the Cabin at Wild Harmony is a great place from which to enjoy this corner of the universe.
This cabin was absolutely perfect! We had the most relaxing weekend hiking on the trails, enjoying the views from the porch, and keeping warm by the fireplace. Could not have asked for a more perfect weekend and will definitely return in the future.
Cabin was clean and well maintained. Great cabin if you are looking for a quiet cabin in the woods. Had everything we needed and we liked the private trails. While we didn't have any trouble in our Ford Edge, the cabin could be difficult to get to in some vehicles and weather conditions as the driveway is gravel and steep in areas. Right down the road is a ranch that offers horseback riding at a reasonable price with beautiful views.
We couldn't say more wonderful things about our experience in Berry Cabin! We felt nestled in the trees for our entire stay. The cabin is very private and quiet, and although there is a farmhouse nearby (in the summer, not even visible from the cabin), no renters were there until our last night. Lisa promptly answered all my questions prior to our stay and Davia, the property manager, was friendly and courteous upon our arrival and departure. We hiked a little on the property and the trails were in great shape and we soaked daily in the outside tub-- divine! Also, the horseback riding (and garnet digging!) with Shady Bottom down the hill was stellar. Local veggies and baked goods are available at the Daily Bread down the road and, although we didn't find a need to visit, there is a little grocery store. Both Marshall and Weaverville are sweet little towns with a up and coming artist vibe, and a trip to Hot Springs and the Laurel River are all easy afternoon drives. Although we came here thinking we would spend more time in Asheville, we found we didn't want to spend too much time away from our home-away-from-home. This cabin is a must for anyone wanting to get away from it all!
My husband and I loved Berry Cabin. The porch, the tub, the balcony are all unique and very special. That said, we were very disappointed by the "private hiking." Trails were wide and had not been maintained in some time so were full of poison ivy and tall grass and ticks. Ticks everywhere. We tried to do one trail and then gave up because the poison ivy and grass and came back to the cabin full of ticks. Also the farmhouse and another cabin can be seen from berry cabin. While we were there no one else was staying in the other two houses but if they were occupied, there would have been a lot less privacy. I am still glad we choose Berry Cabin and would love to come back some day. I might just check first to be sure the trails were maintained more recently. And bring a tub stopper, there wasn't one. Also no grill or outdoor cooking space. And It is a solid 25 minute drive to Asheville. But we loved the 3 nights we spent in this cabin and it is a truly beautiful area!
Hi Lindsey. We're pleased with the positive comments you had about your stay and certainly hope that you will come back for a future stay.
Regarding the hiking trails, yes, they are wide, grass-bed trails as opposed to gravel or dirt paths. This is a product of them being reclaimed roads, originally built years ago for access to Berry Knob and other locations on the property. We take great pride in our 2.5 mile trail system and have invested much time and energy in developing, signing, and maintaining it. The trails have been cleared twice already since the Winter season - most recently on April 28 - and are regularly maintained. Trails are scheduled for mowing in mid-May (as the first of 4-5 regularly-scheduled, annual mowings), although rain can necessitate slight adjustments to that schedule.
Berry Cabin does have a Studio ~100' distant. It is not occupied but has been made available for use by prior guests as a relaxation space and yoga and meditation room - among other uses. Additionally, there is an historic, remodeled Farmhouse ~350' away and down below the Cabin that we also provide for vacation renting. You may enjoy staying there on a future visit.
Indeed there is no grill (on account of liability concerns). An outdoor firepit is available in the south yard and an ample lower deck provides an outdoor space to enjoy food, drinks and camaraderie.
Also, the Cabin tub stopper was there prior to your stay. Sorry it was not available. Our Property Manager lives on an adjacent farm and is available to address such things. We will affix the stopper to the tub to prevent it being misplaced in the future.
We are sorry for any inconvenience during your stay, as we strive hard to exceed the expectations of all our guests.
This is a nice little cabin in a pretty setting. We had plenty of room for 2 adults and 3 kids. The trail to Berry Knob was serene and provided a good workout. Horseback riding available right down the road.
Had a GREAT time at the Berry Cabin over the Valentine's Day weekend. Cabin was very nice and cozy. Had a few concerns about driving to the cabin with the recent snow but Lisa assured me that the driveways had been scraped prior to us arriving and the snow was no problem at all. I would highly recommend this cabin to anyone looking for the perfect mountain getaway. Wonderful trails to explore, extremely nice cabin, and one of the best parts, only 25 minutes outside of Asheville. Loved the price, location, and cabin!
