Important Property Notes
• 4WD Recommended, and Required in Winter. The road to Cardinal's Nest is steep and winding, as this YouTube video outlines: https://youtu.be/lV8eME9fEyw. Please ensure your vehicle has sufficient clearance(i.e. SUV, Truck, or raised sedan). During the winter months and inclement weather, a 4WD/AWD vehicle is required to access this property, and we strongly recommended that you arrive during daylight hours. For the extra effort, however, you are rewarded with seclusion, beauty, and a lot of fun just getting there!
• Guests will need to supply their own firewood to make use of the wood burning fireplace, and charcoal to make use of the Charcoal Grill.
• Travel Insurance Recommended: Due to the location of this home, any inclement weather in winter may render it unreachable. We highly recommend guests consider travelers insurance for this property as there are no refunds for weather.
• Noise Ordinance: Cardinal's Nest is located on a quiet mountainside where noise travels at night. This home is under a noise ordinance between 10 p.m. and 8 a.m. and has a very low noise tolerance. It is not suitable for groups that are looking for late nights of celebration on the back deck or for groups with motorcycles. The good news is that we have many properties that offer seclusion, so if this is an inconvenience for you, please give us a call and we will help you find the perfect property to match your needs!
• Mountain Roads
For drivers who are unfamiliar with mountain road driving, we recommend an AWD vehicle for property access.

Property Cancellation Policy
Please note that this property’s Non-Refundable Period is 30 days prior to arrival. If your reservation is made within this period, it will be non-refundable from the time of booking. Cancellations are permitted outside of this period, per our vacation rental agreement. We encourage you to consider travel insurance to help protect your vacation investment against the unknown! Learn more about Travel Insurance here.

Mountain Discovery Pass
Each reservation comes complete with our exclusive Mountain Discovery Pass, which now includes a Biltmore Estate pass -- in addition to seasonal activities such as ziplining, whitewater rafting, and skiing! This extremely valuable pass is a special gift from Carolina Mornings to our guests, and is not available anywhere else. Enjoy Asheville the way it is meant to be enjoyed, and let us spoil you with activities and the best customer service in Asheville!

Very nice view. Honey feel to the cabin.
Gina W from Gastonia, NC - Posted: 11/15/2021
The Cardinal's Nest was BIGGER than I thought it was going to be! The drive into it was fun-we definitely needed my husband's 4WD Toyota truck. The hot tub was super nice and in such a portion that I was nice and private. The swing on the front porch is novel! Reminds me of my granny's house.

Loved it
