Are you looking for a modern log cabin to unwind in a peaceful setting surrounded by nature? Adventure of a Lifetime offers year-round, gorgeous mountain views and plenty of fresh air, plus cozy, clean, modern accommodations. This cabin was built nestled in the trees for privacy and decorated for a designer touch mountain getaway.

Located in the Piney Mountain cabin community, Adventure of a Lifetime is easily accessible from Interstate I-26 near Saluda, NC, and is surrounded by a 12,000 acre tract of land preserved through a conservancy easement and the North Carolina Wildlife Commission. An access point for Cove Creek and the trail to Little Bradley Falls is located just down the road on the way to the charming railroad town of Saluda. The neighborhood roads are perfect for a walk right out your front door. Wildlife sightings are common here, including deer, bear, turkeys, and hawks. After a day spent exploring the Blue Ridge Mountains and the nearby city of Asheville, take advantage of the mountain weather by stargazing, or grilling on the wrap-around deck.

This enchanting modern log cabin, constructed in 2020, makes a delightful gathering space with cathedral ceilings, beautiful poplar bark accents, stylish designer touches and furnishings, quiet ceiling fans, and dimmable lighting. The home was built with attention to detail. Catch up on conversation by the living room's gas log fireplace or retreat to the TV room for a movie night.

The mountain views will not disappoint.
The mountain views will not disappoint. Peaceful and beautiful cabin. High up in the mountains. A gas fireplace, fire pit, and propane grill are perfect amenities.

The cabin is gorgeous and the view is breathtaking!
Amazing cabin! We enjoyed our escape to the woods so very much. Everything was close from trails to the town of Saluda to grocery stores. The cabin is gorgeous and the view is breathtaking!

We would stay here again.
The property sits on a beautiful and peaceful lot. We loved sitting outside on the back porch to enjoy our early morning coffee. It's very serene and the views of the mountains are beautiful. We took many hikes around the property, met some very friendly neighbors, and also enjoyed roasting marshmallows out by the fire pit at night. The home is well stocked with all the essentials and we were pleased with the cleanliness and quality of the home items. They provided enough kitchen and bath supplies for our entire stay. The cabin is a relatively close drive to the charming town of Saluda. But it's also convenient to most of the local attractions. We would stay here again.

Wonderful, peaceful getaway
We stayed for three nights. It was our first family vacation with our newborn. What a relaxing experience! The smell of wood when you walk in really puts you in the mood of being in the outdoors. The cabin is absolutely beautiful, so well designed. It’s neat and clean, the beds are super comfortable and has everything you can possibly need including fully stocked kitchen appliances and a washer and dryer, which was wonderful to come home with everything clean in our luggage. We arrived in the later afternoon, and the sunset on the balcony is breathtaking. Not to mention waking up in the morning to the most beautiful, abundant light. The living area has really high ceilings so it feels like the place is huge. There’s a sweet TV room where we watched movies at night and it felt really cozy. But we spent most of our time on the large balcony patio area outside. That’s where we grilled and had dinner and enjoyed our morning coffee. The little town of Saluda is super close by and very quaint. So many places to eat and there’s cute little shops to check out. We also drove to Asheville one day, which is not far at all, for a busier more bustling city experience. We are already talking about coming back and having another stay during a colder time of year so that we can sit outside and enjoy the fire pit and indoor fireplace. Overall…love this cabin!

A beautiful peaceful cabin.
A beautiful peaceful cabin about 15 min outside of Saluda was a perfect base for my family of three during a visit to relatives in the area.

Cannot Wait to Return!
Wow!!! Adventure of a Lifetime, was exactly as the name implies and much, much more!! We spent 3 extraordinary nights in this incredibly designed cabin that feels like it came straight out of a design magazine. The bed was very comfortable, especially after a fun-filled day tubing down the Green River with the Green Rover Cove Tubing outfit. We also enjoyed a wonderful easy hike to an unforgettable overlook with view of a majestic waterfall. Many animals sightings were encountered to make this wild adventure even more authentic. The kitchen was fully-equipped, you can tell the owners are very conscious of their guests having everything at their disposal and fingertips. WiFi available and worked seamlessly. The town of Saluda was absolutely charming with a very nice market that had all the essentials, and to boot there were a handful (area population of 800;) of adorable bistros and shops to peruse. In summary, my family cannot wait to return to this, “Adventure of a Lifetime!”

Epic Mountain Escape!
Charming, welcoming and cozy… That’s the only way to describe this epic mountain escape. From a breathtaking front porch view of a majestic mountain skyline, to a cabin filled with anything, and everything you would find in your own home, (and even more) — this was the perfect getaway. It’s nestled off a country road easy to navigate and truly gives one the feeling of getting away from it all. The space is immaculate, stocked with all the essentials, and a few added accents that just makes you smile. There is an attention to detail in every corner… including subtle windowsill lighting from a mason jar. The fireplace is a treasure… the beds are super comfortable… the bathrooms easy to unpack and settle into — and the kitchen is modern.. and fun to use. Cannot wait to escape there once again.

Group Trip
Went in a family group trip, everything was extremely clean and very well decorated. The host was very accommodating, and truly made this cabin feel like your home away from home. Already booking my next stay here for December!

Amazing Birthday Trip
Adventure of a life time is a quiet, clean, spacious and calming place. It is near zip lining and close to all the lovely restaurants and bars of the area. But you can’t hear the noise of the streets in the apartment. The whole place made us feel at ease. The host was very nice, easy to talk to and very friendly when they welcomed us. I would definitely come again!

Woodland Oasis!
Though she be but small, she is mighty! I spent the week celebrating a belated Christmas with my family (thanks, Covid), and this house was fantastic. Nothing like a fireplace and cozy blankets to help you reset! We even got caught in a snowstorm which was pretty magical. While most city folk probably wouldn't appreciate being stuck at home, we could not have asked for something more special than the thrill of stocking the fridge (and the liquor cabinet) and preparing to hunker down. The property's neighbor, Charlotte, even came over and invited us to go sledding! Haven't done that in years! The view from the cabin is gorgeous and serene and perfect for when you need to escape the hustle and bustle of the real world. If you're looking for a place to hunker down with a few friends and some bevies and some board games, you've found it. Could not recommend more!

Loved!! beautiful new home - awesome views - House has everything you will need.

The House is Impeccable!
Wow! Stayed for 3 nights with 2 other friends and we had a great time. The cabin is a short drive to The Gorge Zip Line and the super cute town of Saluda. We drove into Asheville and did some brewery visits and great hikes (Chimney Rock) as well. Everything is a manageable (30-40 minute) drive from the house. And the house is impeccable, decorated beautifully and so comfortable and peaceful. This place is the best of both worlds. Calm surroundings while you’re there but close to all the fun AVL has to offer.

Peaceful and Accommodating!
Great experience at adventure of a lifetime NC. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Peaceful and accommodating environment. It was just the two of us but could accommodate up to 4 people comfortably. Beautiful views and hiking areas and they even have a Teahouse down the mountain. The town is quaint and it’s an Andy Griffin Mayberry kinda vibe with internet. Cute restaurants in Saluda. We stopped at the general store and the mayor was the cashier. It’s a hoot! Can’t wait to return.

Our Cabin Was Luxurious!
Our stay in Saluda N.C., was all about relaxation! Our cabin was luxurious! 1st night was just the two of us cuddling in front of the fireplace until falling asleep. Our host made sure we had everything we needed, with plenty comfort and tranquility! Sitting on the couch looking out over the mountains is spectacular! We sat out on the deck, playing a board game and having some great wine, Made our days perfect. We also enjoyed downtown Saluda and Thompsons General Store. Much appreciation and blessings to our hosts!

Let the Adventure Begin
This was a great getaway spot for our vacation. The cabin is nestled in the mountain with a great view. The Inside is so comfy, the 4 of us didn’t want to leave. We spotted a herd of deer one night on the drive up. The surroundings are quiet, serene and beautiful but there are fun things to check out nearby, like the town of Saluda and the forest nearby. The most relaxing vacation I’ve had in a while.
