What could be more convenient than having a gas station, a country store, and a popular lunch spot right at the end of your driveway? The DD Restaurant, short for Dillingham and Dillingham, has been operated by the home owners' family since 1965. Across the fishing pond is a quiet, local mobile home park. During the summer months, a tree screen obscures most of it from view. Down the road into Bernardsville you will find further evidence of the family's local roots at Dillingham Presbyterian Church, a beautiful stone chapel.

Meet the Owners
"Two years ago, I inherited the property I grew up on along with a brand new, nearly completed barn - my father's last project before his passing. My wife and I decided to turn it into a "dacha." Having spent a significant amount of time working in Eastern Europe and Russia, we adopted the cultural concept of having a dacha, which translates to second home, but really means that although you may eat, sleep, go to work, school, etc. somewhere else, a dacha is your true family 'home.' Dillingham Dacha was built by our friends and family that work as local professionals and craftsmen in Barnardsville. The location of our dacha provides us a way of ensuring our children have time with our extended families and enjoy some of the same experiences and mountain landscapes that my wife and I grew up with in the area."

We had a nice experience staying here. It was a very nice little spot. Out of town enough to be slightly remote and quiet but not too far when we want to experience Weaverville or Asheville. The house was very clean, and the linens were super soft. We only had two minor complaints about our stay, but nothing serious to take away any stars. As others have mentioned, there is a trailer sitting right down the driveway to this property, much closer than it appears in the pictures. Upon arrival, this neighbor decided he would just start walking around the property, making a loop around the pond seen in the photos.
This was our 30th wedding anniversary trip! What a wonderful place to stay. Your home is beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing it with us. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck in the mornings with coffee and in the evenings relaxing on the swing. I need one! Riding the motorcycles through the Blue Ridge Parkway was beautiful. Dinner out with friends and family was delicious! Closing today with a full day of antiquing was great!
Great place. Spotless, many activities and adventures close by.
An excellent place to get out of the city and enjoy some space while also having the choice take a short drive to enjoy all that Asheville and surrounding areas have to offer. The bedrooms, bath, kitchen, patio, porch… it is all wonderful.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. You have a lovely home. We enjoyed nights by the fire pit and coffee on the porch.
Clean and cute. We love the big porch. Thank you for this wonderful property!
Greatly exceeded expectations, check-in was very easy and huge for the price. The fire pit was really nice and the lighting made it a great time to hang out and relax. The massive kitchen and wrap-around porch are what really stood out to us! Worth every penny.
A very lovely home. Very clean, and comfortable, and is so close to Weaverville and Mars Hill.
Very nice and clean! We totally enjoyed watching the deer from the swing.
So comfortable and very well kept. Clean as well. Will come again!
The place was beautifully described accurately. It was a perfect place for our family over Thanksgiving back again.
Stayed here with our 8-month-old while visiting some family in the area. Very clean and cozy place. Love how fully equipped the kitchen is so we can do some cooking. Also great outdoor area with a swing and fireplace! Highly recommend this place for a family vacation!
This property is sitting in the middle of a trailer park! Horrible location. If you wish to look at trailers this is your place! Carolina Mornings horrible!
Beautiful home Thank you so much. Our family comes to visit for my 32nd birthday and to show my husband my beautiful hometown. We can't wait to come back here with my son. Thank again
Place was very clean, modern. Loved that a free biltmore estate pass and ski pass was included. Garage was a nice touch for the winter time. Kitchen fully stocked and listing is exactly as advertised
This cabin is beautifully designed with all the amenities we could have asked for. The pictures were mildly deceiving as I was under the impression it was a bit more secluded, but nonetheless the location was perfect and decently quiet. Would absolutely love to visit again!
Everything as described in the listing. Nice and clean. Comfy beds. Location was private and quiet. We would stay again.
Great place to stay. Used the pass to go to Biltmore. Overall very satisfied!
This home was very clean and decorated nicely. Had all the essentials we needed. Loved evenings by the fireplace and meals outside on the wrap around porch! Not as secluded as pictures portray, but still very quiet. House is located within 20 minutes of downtown Asheville and other major attractions. I would stay here again!
If you are thinking about it...do it! This property is about 18-20min from everything fun in Asheville! The place was exactly what i was looking for...a cabin vibe but close enough to the action. The wrap around porch and the beautiful weeping willow....omg gorgeous! The fire pit...super vibey! I loved it!
Loved our stay here. It was fabulous and so very clean. Outdoor fire place was my favorite
Beautiful home! Very clean and organized. Beautiful porch and seating area(s).
Overall good stay!
Cabin was beautifully decorated
Very beautiful home and setting.
Beautiful property with lovely cabin like feel and charming decorations. Loved the outdoor fireplace and second story porch.
"I imagine the fishing pond on the property is an important selling point. That is why we have stayed here twice! We had a great time, but only caught two small fish. "
"Visiting from Florida and enjoyed a much needed break from the heat! We enjoyed this lovely area and all that Asheville has to offer. Thank you for having us, we hope to return to the Dacha soon!"
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - filling our time with lots of cooking, games, and evening fires with a cozy drink. You have a lovely home - we loved seeing all the photos from your travels!"
We enjoyed the area and the comfort of the home. We will return again!
We had a very nice time here and are a little sad to leave. It was nice seeing so many pictures of places we're familiar with too! Now this area - and this home - will be added to that list!!
"We loved the fireplace and comfortable bed, and the kitchen supplies were well stocked and of high quality. 5-star furnishings and bedding. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings - we would recommend. "
"The cabin was very nice. 5-star cleanliness and furnishings - kitchen was well stocked, no maintenance questions or issues. We loved the large upper level deck and the fireplace area with the lights. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings - would recommend."
What a great place to spend our 10th wedding anniversary!!! The travel photos were fantastic. We've been to many of the same places.
Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home while we explored the unique area of Asheville. We enjoyed celebrating our birthdays here and were grateful to have this cozy home to stay at. A wonderful vacation - we'll definitely be back in the future!
Fabulous updated appliances and living space.
We loved staying at the Dillingham Dacha for our first anniversary! Our trip was the perfect mix of new places and remembering our short stay here during our honeymoon. The Dacha was perfect because it was just a short drive from Asheville yet felt very secluded. It's a beautiful place & we can't wait to come back one day!
"Thank you for sharing your beautiful family home. It was a great location between ETSU and Furman for our meetings for our business, College Wall Art. We look forward to returning. "
"Awesome time, beautiful cabin. Thanks for sharing your home with us!"
We had a wonderful stay - beautiful home & very well thought out. Thanks.
We had a wonderful time at your cabin. We made good use of the pond and the firepit. Made a fire every night. Very comfortable and clean. You all live in a great area with natural beauty and fun local culture. Hope to come back!
"We had an amazing stay at your cabin. Honestly, it is hard to say what our favorite thing to do was...we love it all...fishing, shopping,, brewery tours, & hiking Mt. Mitchell. The outdoor patio w/fire pit was great to come home to every night as well. We will be back for sure. Thanks so much."
This was a wonderful place to stay! It was very clean and great decor! We really enjoyed staying there!
My family and I LOVE your cabin! It's so inviting and relaxing. It is such a beautiful home in a great location! Thank you so much to the AMAZING Dillingham family.
Beautiful residence. Nice mountains! the place is one of a kind for a reasonable amount of rent. Unbeatable.
This place is amazing. we had an awesome birthday weekend! Thank you!!!
"What a wonderful place. The porch and patio are great. We enjoyed the setting and all the homey extras plus outside activities. This home is a joy with comfort and companionship. Someone put a lot of thought and care into it and the design. Blessings, Thank you!! "
Carolina Mornings was great to work with. Dillingham Dacha was a delight and wonderful to stay in and experience mountain life. Thank you for a clean beautiful place.
This house was perfect for what we needed! It's close to Asheville and the surrounding area. It's clean and the renovations are updated and beautiful. The included tickets to attractions are definitely an added bonus.
Absolutely perfect weekend at the Dillingham Dacha. The house was immaculate and comfortable. The wrap around roof deck and outdoor fireplace made evenings so nice while overlooking the pond (I wish we brought fishing gear). We spent a lot of time in Asheville but had a fabulous meal in downtown Weaverville at the Glass Onion. It was so nice to come back to this tastefully furnished and extremely cozy house every evening. I would definitely stay here again!!!
Great location. Very neat and well kept. We enjoyed it!
The cabin was great! It was very clean on the inside. All appliances were new looking and in working order. Outside fireplace was awesome. Having a pond on the property was great and was great to take the kids fishing at.
The cabin was great! It was very clean on the inside. All appliances where new looking and in working order. Outside fireplace was awesome. Having a pond on the property was great and was great to take the kids fishing at. You could hear traffic from the main road during the day which wasn't a big deal because we were gone most of the day and at night it was significantly less and was not a issue.
Beautiful and comfortable property.
Great experience all around. Dillingham Dacha is a very nice rental property and we will rent it again on our next trip to the Asheville area.
Was better than expected!
We loved our stay. The cabin was perfect for our family and very clean. We are already figuring out when we can come back! Thanks for making our vacation so much fun!
