My husband and I enjoyed our honeymoon at the Red Bird! We thought the cabin was gorgeous, cozy, and well taken care of! We plan to visit again. Thank you for such a memorable trip! Next time we will be sure to bring our fur babies :)

We had the greatest time at Red Bird. The cabin is cute and quaint and the perfect place for a relaxing weekend away. It was our first weekend away kid-free since our daughter was born - and we would recommend this to any and everyone. The fireplace and hot tub were our favorite. I loved sipping coffee listening to the birds each morning while swinging on the porch swing. Thank you for the perfect place to get rejuvenated.
Brittany, Raleigh, NC 1/22/2017
Everything was amazing! The app was helpful, the cabin was so beautiful and had everything and more than we expected! The jacuzzi was an amazing touch for us weary hikers after a long day. It was so quiet and the perfect place to get our minds out of gear. We posted our personal pictures of the cabin on our Facebook and have already had several friends ask where it is and for your information. The pictures spoke for themselves! There's something to be said for attention to detail and great customer service. Your cabin is a slam dunk, and well be back again! Thanks!
Zachary, New Bern, NC 2/20/2017
We really enjoyed our stay with Carolina Mornings'! Our cabin was perfect and in great condition, I was very pleased. It was also pet friendly which made the stay even better, we will be using y'all again and recommending to all of our friends.
Casey, Ladson, SC 1/1/2017
Had a wonderful time here at Red Bird. The cabin is beautiful and cozy. Great place to celebrate our 20th anniversary. Thank you.
Blaine, Clendenin , WV 10/24/2016
This was my fiance and mine’s first time here, but will most certainly not be our last! What an amazing, beautiful and perfect cabin! Felt like a home away from home! We cannot wait to stay here again!
Kelly, Seagrove, NC 9/25/2016
The Redbird was the perfect getaway for my husband and me to celebrate our 16th anniversary! We loved the decor and quaintness it offered. We enjoyed dining at Blue Mountain Pizza, ziplining, touring the Biltmore, and the atmosphere of downtown Asheville. The hot tub was a bonus to help relax after a day of adventure or sightseeing. Thanks for a great retreat!
Aaron, Versailles, KY 6/6/2016
My husband and I got three days away from our five children and came to Redbird for our 20th anniversary!! It has been such a nice getaway. We toured the Biltmore for two days. We also did the rooftop tour which we highly recommend. We ziplined also which was a fun time. We are heading out to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Craggy Gardens today. The cabin was so clean and tastefully decorated. We have really enjoyed our time here and watching the woodchuck that lives up the hill from the cabin.
Nathan, Charlotte, NC 6/3/2016
Our first vacation and it is love at first sight. The peace and solitude are exactly what we’ve been waiting for. Crabtree Falls Trail is amazing. The staff members we have encountered during our stay are amazingly friendly and good to talk to. This is a very nice aspect of our visit. Great stay. Great cabin. Location is perfect for so many things. We will be back.
Gaetano, Greenville, SC 4/14/2016
We absolutely loved our little weekend away at the Red Bird! It was the perfect mix between "getting away" from it all to being just 15 minutes to downtown Asheville to enjoy a great meal! The Red Bird was very clean, better than what the pictures portray, bed is comfy, etc...We loved using the gas fireplace and jacuzzi! Only ran out of hot water after one long shower but that would be my only criticism. We will definitely return!
Kristen B, Holly Springs, NC 1/1/1900
Great little cabin getaway! Close to downtown Asheville and a lot of hiking trails. We came here for my husbands birthday with our dog. The cabin was clean, safe, private, easily accessible from the interstate, and the whole rental process was very easy. They sent us everything we needed to know about getting to the cabin and things to do in the area beforehand, and we didn't have any issues during our stay. The Carolina Mornings app was also very helpful and easy to use. The cabin is the perfect size for a couple, with all the basics you'll need. It would probably be a little snug for anything over two people though. For never having been to the area, we had a great time and would definitely consider staying at Red Bird again.
Laura P., Birmingham, AL 1/1/1900
My husband and I enjoyed our time at Red Bird Cabin. The cabin is decorated beautifully. It has been a wonderful, cozy and relaxing time here. We will consider returning. Thanks for everything.
Shakina, Florence, SC 2/2/2016
Everything was just perfect and we loved our stay. There's literally everything you could possibly need in the cabin and it was nice being able to make breakfast and dinner there and just going out for lunches while we were exploring the area. The mountain discovery pass was great and easy to use! We will definitely be coming back to Asheville, and won't think of staying anywhere but a Carolina Morning's cabin!
Ashley, Spring Hill, FL 4/2/2016
Even though it rained every day except for one, we enjoyed Red Bird cabin. This was our first trip with our dogs...they loved the fireplace and all the new smells they discovered on their walks. We’d love to come back when it’s not raining.
Bob, Braselton, GA 12/3/2015
My husband and I are newlyweds. We were married on july 18th, 2015. We are always looking for a different city to travel to. We wanted to see Biltmore for Christmas. we had a phenomenal time at the Biltmore and Red Bird. Red Bird provides all the amenities that a hotel room would have plus more. Hot tub and seclusion is the reason we will consider returning. We had a great time! Love it here.
Orah, Rocky Mount, NC 12/23/2015
We really enjoyed our long weekend at Red Bird. The cabin has everything you need, is beautifully decorated, and is in a great location. Thank you for a wonderful getaway.
Anna, Mooresville, NC 1/3/2016
We had an awesome time on our anniversary getaway! The Red Bird was wonderful and we will definitely be back!
Stephen, Wilson, NC 1/17/2016
My boyfriend surprised me with this retreat for my birthday! Its very nice and I would love to come back next summer.
Ashley & Richard, West Columbia, SC 8/17/2015
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Red Bird. The cabin is so cutely decorated! We had a lovely, long weekend. Thank you!
Dale, Atlanta, GA 8/3/2015
Beautiful cabin and perfect retreat after long days walking around Asheville. The location couldn't have been more perfect and we had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend away - loved the fireplace and Red Bird decor! Hope to make this an annual trip.
Henry, Roanoke, VA 5/3/2015
Wonderful place to stay! Thank you!
Norman, Sanford, NC 5/17/2015
My husband and I came here for our honeymoon and we just loved everything about this fabulous cabin. We cannot wait to come back to Red Bird and enjoy our anniversary.
John & Brittany, Hamlet, NC 6/16/2015
We had an absolutely wonderful time here. The cabin is beautiful and comfortable. We were here visiting for the July 4th weekend. What a great place to come "home" to after a long day of fun adventures! We will certainly be returning to this fantastic cabin and to wonderful Asheville. Thank yoU!
Steve, Virginia Beach, VA 7/6/2015
The family enjoyed our time in this little cabin. The kids really enjoyed the loft. We were close to everything we planned to do but also enjoyed our time being cozy in the cabin. We will be back soon.
Elizabeth, Ridgeville, SC 1/4/2015
We were so excited to have a private New Years getaway together and this cabin was perfect. It was only made better by getting engaged at the Biltmore on the second day! This was the vacation of our dreams and we can wait to come back to this special cabin. Thank you for everything. Happy New Year!
Parker, Greenwood, SC 1/1/2015
My husband and I rented this cabin for our honeymoon and it has been everything we hoped for! The staff was helpful and the cabin is warm and cozy. This is our first trip to North Carolina and we have been interested i living here for some time after hearing wonderful things from friends and relatives. Our visit does not disappoint! Maybe soon we will move nearby after being inspired by our stay here.
Melodi, Charleston, SC 12/12/2014
We rented the cabin for a weekend getaway to go see Biltmore. Cabin was great! So clean and decorated beautifully.
Shane, Lugoff, SC 11/16/2014
We had the best time! My husband rented the Red Bird for my 27thh birthday. The cabin is perfect for a cozy and romantic place to come back after touring downtown Asheville and visiting the Biltmore!
We will be back!
Jake, Southern Pines, NC 11/10/2014
We loved our stay at the Red Bird! My husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary and enjoyed exploring Asheville. Thanks for a wonderful weekend.

This is our first time to NC and this cabin is fabulous, from the decor to the excellent condition, it has made our stay perfect.
Janine, Madison Lake, MN 10/17/2014
My husband surprised me with this secluded getaway for our 3rd anniversary and it has been better than I’d imagined. There is so much to do and then relax at the end of the day. Thank you so much. We enjoyed everything.
Michael, Morganton, NC 3/8/2015
It was our 2nd trip to Asheville and the cabin was very cozy and clean - very relaxing for a weekend getaway.
Maria, Charlotte, NC 3/15/2015
We had a romantic, restful honeymoon in Red Bird! Everything we needed was at our fingertips. We particularly loved the fireplace and the hot tub was very relaxing after a day of exploring trails. Such a cute, secluded place, we loved every minute!!
Tanya, Vero Beach, FL 10/8/2014
I was very impressed with the prompt response to maintenance issues. The cabin was lovely and we plan to stay there again this year. Thank you!
Jennifer, Greensboro, NC 6/7/2015
Cute Cabin! Loved location - near ziplining and rafting. Downtown Weaverville is delightful!
Todd, Raliegh, NC 7/27/2014
Red Bird was perfect. Not in the center of everything but very close when you wanted to go downtown. Stores nearby for necessities- just a perfect location! Cabin size is perfect for 2. Decor was outstanding. We will stay again.
Steve, Cary, NC 7/25/2014
The Customer Service we experienced was very good. When we first called, our agent was sweet and answered our plethora of question. She was also very nice to mention other extra nearby scenic sites like the Linville Falls and Caverns, Mt. Pisgah area, and more. If I left a message, It was always returned and my questions always answered very well.
A great perk we received by staying with Carolina Mornings - the agency that controlled the Red Bird Cabin at Laurel Mountain Retrea, was the Mountain Discovery Pass (MDP) for each day you stay at the cabin. We got a great deal on the Biltmore estate- basically a buy one get one free deal to see the estate each day of your stay. We went to tour the different parts of the estate both Saturday and Sunday so it worked out really nicely. As well, the MDP also offered French Broad Ziplining for buy one get one free. We were staying in May so those were the only two activities being offered. But in the summer, even white water rafting is offered in the MDP, and in the Winter, skiing is offered as well.
The amenities provided by the cabin were a good balance. We didn't have to bring any kitchen or laundry items because there was ample provided. However, if you do use the hot tub (which we didn't get a chance to), I would bring extra towels just in case. Also, if you are a family of four, I would bring anything extra that you are picky about- like your own favorite coffee/ tea, or pots, pans and such that you feel make better food. The cabin provides a basic amount of kitchen amenities but it was more than enough for my husband and I.
Aesthetically, the cabin is beautiful, cozy, and quaint. I loved the red bird theme they had going on inside the cabin. The pictures online are exactly how it looks inside- it seems like it's been renovated for a magazine. The loft was a cute addition too although we didn't really use it. The only con my husband and I noticed really was that the queen bed was kind of squeaky, but it was comfortable nevertheless.
Another great pro that comes with staying at this cabin is that although nice and secluded and has a corner lot, you are still not in the middle of no where. Wal Mart, CVS, and many other stores and restaurants are about 5- 10 minutes away. Asheville downtown is about 15 away, and Biltmore estate is about 20-25 minutes away.
Great and memorable stay and experience for us- we just wish we could have used the hot tub as well if we had a longer stay.
Nadeem, Waxhaw, NC 5/26/2014
We went on our honeymoon and my brother gave me your website for Carolina Mornings. We absolutely loved our stay at your cabin. I would recommend it to my family and friends.
Karen, Raleigh, NC 5/23/2014
My husband and I love the mountains. Because of this fact, we've stayed in multiple log cabins across the country throughout our frequent getaways...Georgia, Virginia, Tennessee, even Alaska. When it came time for us to plan our getaway for our second wedding anniversary, we thought we'd try something new, which lead us to the beautiful cabins of Laurel Mountain Retreats. Upon arrival we were greeted with open arms and a warm heart from the Red Bird cabin, cozy, and immaculately decorated from head to toe with no shortcut on attention to detail. Everything we could have possibly wanted for our anniversary weekend was here and we immediately felt like we were in our home away from home. The Red Bird cabin has the distinct feeling of a mountain getaway with the convenience of all of life's "necessities."
If you want to feel truly spoiled in the Smoky Mountains by owners who treat you like family then Chad and Kathy's mountain retreat is the place to do it. My husband and I are already planning our next trip here.
