Discover the Smoky Mountains at Pony Express
Pony Express Living AreaIf you're planning a mountain getaway but would rather travel a bit more off the beaten path than most, consider centering your vacation around Majors Estate, located in Waynesville, NC. The 200 acre conservancy, just 20 minutes from Waynesville, NC and just 40 minutes from the larger community of Asheville, is a vacation destination in and of itself with 4 cabins and infinite possibilities for fun and adventure. One of the newest cabins on the Estate, Pony Express, is a one-of-a-kind log cabin that incorporates the ever-so appropriate themes of rugged charm and wild frontiers. This 2-bedroom, 2-bath cabin has everything that a family of four could want from an adventurous yet family-friendly getaway in the mountains.
 
Pony Express Living RoomPony Express has a unique charm that is perfectly suited for those who want both a comfortable, well appointed home as well as the classic essence of a rugged, mountain vacation. The completely hard wood home, the tasteful and often custom decor, the fully equipped kitchen, and the sun soaked living spaces create an atmosphere perfect for relaxing, yet the living room's pot-bellied wood stove and the kitchen's wood burning cook stove hark back to a simpler, more robust time. Indeed, this is a home for those who crave the best of both worlds and the themes of a different time.
 
Pony Express KitchenEnjoying the amenities of Majors Estate is easy when you stay at Pony Express. Situated mid-way up the mountainside, this home boasts breathtaking long range views of the valleys and mountains in the distance and convenient access to all of the activities available on the Estate. The mountaintop tennis court, the 200 acres of private land, the 1.5 miles of private Pigeon River frontage - all of these are at your fingertips when you stay at Pony Express. Traveling with children? Enjoy the custom built playground area - sure to tire out your little tykes. Later on, arrange to visit the small collection of animals in the barnyard area - goats, donkeys, peacocks, and horses will surely excite and entertain the whole family. And if you find the time to venture off the Estate to explore the surrounding area, Waynesville, NC will awe you with its small town charm, its friendly locals, and its tidy streets.
