Description Description
Rivertime, it's a place in your heart. Whether you spend a weekend or a whole month relaxing at this charming cabin, you wind up feeling younger, nourished, and rejuvenated.

Surrounded by its own absolutely private nature sanctuary, Rivertime is a beautiful cabin for personal retreat, quality family time, or romance. This 800-square-foot cabin has recently been updated both inside and out! The furnishings and decor are vibrant, inspiring positive vibes. Situated on the banks of the Ivy River, the cabin is remarkably clean and filled with light, and is perfectly suited for a true mountain getaway. As you gaze into the flames of a cozy fire on a cool evening, you'll feel your worries dissipate and wonder why you didn't come here sooner.

Wake up to fresh mountain air and enjoy the woodland wildlife from the comfort of the covered deck! The cabin's exterior and landscaping, including stone pathways and accent lighting, have been recently enhanced for your enjoyment. A short path leads to the gurgling river, perfect for a dog who loves to swim - our furry friends love Rivertime too! After a busy day, grill out on the deck and enjoy beautiful wooded views from the hot tub.

For anglers, Rivertime is extra special! If fishing is a favorite activity for anyone in your group, the easy, private river access provides a unique opportunity to fish a quiet spot on the river all to yourself. Just step out of the cabin and walk down a short trail to the riverbank, and enjoy fishing for trout and small-mouthed bass to your heart's content! An additional bonus to this cozy cabin is that it is a Certified Eco-Friendly Property that includes Recycling, Water Saving Toilet, Low VOC Paint, and Green Cleaning Products.

Location Details
Rivertime's Weaverville location makes a great base camp from which to enjoy activities in every direction. Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore House, and the River Arts District are easily accessible via I-26 and linking interstates. To the north, the great WNC wilderness awaits with adventures such as hiking the Appalachian Trail, driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, rafting on the French Broad River, and experiencing the many popular sites in this magical area. This Asheville vacation rental is located in Weaverville and is approximately 20 minutes to downtown Asheville.

Important Property Notes
• 4WD/AWD Recommended in Winter and Travel Insurance Recommended
During the winter months and inclement weather, a 4WD/AWD vehicle is recommended to access Rivertime. Please ensure your vehicle has sufficient clearance (i.e. SUV, Truck, or raised sedan). Low-clearance vehicles with 4WD/AWD are not recommended. During the winter months, we ask you to please consider CSA Travel Insurance to protect your vacation investment from potential winter weather events that could prevent access to the home.
• Long, Narrow Gravel Driveway and Directions: The seclusion at Rivertime is possible because it is situated near the riverbank at the end of a long, narrow gravel driveway that is only wide enough for a single vehicle. We recommend only bringing one vehicle to Rivertime, and to be prepared to turn the vehicle around in a tight space at the bottom. Note that GPS is incorrect for this address, and will take you to the wrong location. Please read over (and print!) our written driving directions before departing on your trip and let us know if you have any questions.
• Amenities: Heads up for avid sports fans, you may not be able to watch live games at this property. There is no cable, satellite, or streaming internet service. Firewood is not provided for guest use. If you plan on using the wood-burning amenities, please purchase wood locally upon arrival. Special arrangements can be made for therapeutic massages and private yoga or pilates sessions at the cabin. Also, there is a massage table available for personal use.

I just want to say, this place is the best place to reset and reconnect with you and your loved one....and your dog! We loved the creek and hot tub. The fireplace and the entire property and cabin. this will be our new mountain getaway for as long as they will allow us. Super friendly staff. super clean property with everything you could ask for in a mountain getaway. it's reasonably priced with anything you could need including a hot tub! I will always recommend this place to any family and friends. I can not wait for our next trip to our little creek cabin getaway!

If you need to get away from the hustle and bustle to unplug, this is the place!
If you need to get away from the hustle and bustle to unplug, this is the place! This beautiful cabin is tucked back down a beautiful winding driveway on the bend of a river. Spent the weekend, hiking, fishing, enjoying the views from the back porch, playing guitar, and cooking. I loved the special touch of them providing a sketch pad and colored pencils! The only thing that kinda stinks is the hot tub wasn’t heating up… they were very responsive and tried to help out but I never got it working which was a huge reason why I booked this Airbnb but luckily there was plenty to occupy my time with. Definitely will be coming back to enjoy it again! Thank you!

Loved our stay and the view and surroundings were better than the pictures. Very peaceful and perfect little getaway. Loved how easy it was to get to downtown Asheville if needed. The host was very responsive with whatever we needed. Recommend!

It was an amazing getaway spot!
It was an amazing getaway spot! The place and the river valley view are breathtaking. We loved how it’s peaceful and private especially the short walk to the river. Our two dogs had a blast exploring outside. We would love to go back there! We got off our phones and enjoyed the peace and serenity. We only stayed two nights wish we had stayed longer. We only went into Asheville for a couple of hours. We preferred being at the cabin. However, Asheville has much to offer. If you plan on doing groceries or getting supplies. There’s a store about 15 minutes away and just outside Asheville, I’d recommend that instead of going through Asheville on your way in that way you can maximize your time at the cabin. The owners and the 3rd party that runs the spot are very accessible, helpful, and very nice. The wood oven fireplace is amazing. There’s a gas station 5 minutes away that sells wood. We brought our dogs so we brought some extra towels in case they got muddy or wet in the creak.

It was so relaxing!
It was so relaxing! I loved our stay. We brought groceries so I could cook and found everything I needed to do that with! We hiked, walked the river, and saw a lot of tracks, deer, and bird watching. The hot tub was amazing. I think we decided to get one of our own! Thanks so much. We will be back.

Thank you for sharing your cozy cabin with us! After a busy year making our oldest a big sister, we felt like she deserved a trip with just her parents! She loved every minute of being on a mountain. We hope to be back!

Everything is as advertised!
Everything is as advertised and the photos on Airbnb don't do justice as much as being here in person and witnessing the astoundingly captivating this place happens to be. We will surely recommend this place to others and I plan to bring my team here in the future for a retreat. However, it's amazingly serene and peaceful at this location. if you are looking for a place to be all alone, have your solitary down time and spend your quiet time, don't look anywhere else. This is the place! It's a great place for walks, trekking, and having family time together. If you are into song creation or book writing, this is a wonderful place to just do that. I did a little bit of writing while I was here. Don't miss out on this place as it's not commercialized yet and helps in recouping from the hectic life we all have. Love it! Blessings to all reading this review.

Perfect Trip to Reset and Relax
We had a wonderful time relaxing at Rivertime. We enjoyed coffee on the back porch every morning and the hot tub every evening. It was the perfect trip to reset and relax. I will miss the sound of the river. We explored the property trails and river with our dogs. They do not want to go home. We can't wait to come back. Thank you for sharing this oasis with us.

Perfect Fall Experience
This Florida girl got a kick out of being tucked away in the woods. It was so nice to experience fall. We were beyond thrilled to see a mama bear and three cubs in the Smoky Mountains National Park. Loved the cabin, the sounds of the water, the river view, the wood stove, and the hot tub. Thank you.

Peace and Quiet
We enjoyed this sweet little cabin tucked away in the woods. It gave us the peace and quiet we needed for the past few days. Asheville was an amazing town with too much to see in such a little amount of time. Can't wait to come back and see more. Thank you for sharing it with us.

great anniversary spot
This is a great anniversary spot! We come to celebrate our 40th! Just what we were hoping for cozy, romantic, everything we needed plus more. Loved the treehouse feel. Bonus, it rained. Loved the rain sound of the swollen creek and the rain on the roof. Thank you

Loved it!
I am really happy my wife booked this place and it's one of the reasons I wanted to share a detailed review. I'll first address some of the previous points brought up. The smell was fine. When we first walked in it smelled slightly musty like an authentic cabin but it wasn't overwhelming and it quickly went away. I saw no signs of mold and the hot water worked well. I will agree that it was kind of burdensome to communicate through the rental management company. I think that was a common complaint everybody had. The cabin was incredible. It was very secluded and the path to it can be steep and narrow. Bring an appropriate vehicle. The back porch and hot tub are just perfect, overlooking the river that passes below. There are multiple small trails that wind through the valley on the property. We saw plenty of deer, turkey, and other wildlife on our walks. The kitchen and bathroom are both clean and the shower has some intense water pressure. The bed is new and comfortable. The climate control worked great. I have no idea how the tv worked, we never bothered with it. The only thing to take note of is that the steps to the bedroom loft are really steep so take that into consideration if you have mobility issues. I highly recommend this place and would consider becoming a repeat customer.

Perfect Anniversary Spot
My wife booked us this cabin for our 10-year anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed it as you can tell in the drawing we left. We grilled out the first night and danced then enjoyed the hot tub. Fished all day during our 2nd day and ordered take out while we relaxed. We fixed more on the 3rd day and relaxed some more after that. Thank you for the beautiful getaway from real life.

"This place was nothing short of amazing coming up from Tampa Florida We did not know what to expect, all we knew is that we wanted a beautiful secluded mountain experience. This place delivered with flying colors! Nothing better than waking up to the beautiful view of the creek starting up a fire and beginning your day with some coffee. We hope to return soon and we hope whoever is reading this enjoys Thursday as much as we did. "
James C from Tampa, FL - Posted: 2/2/2021
Celebrating our 27th anniversary in this sweet spot by Ivy Creek. We really enjoyed the views and dynamic clouds from Max Patch - fun to go through Hot Springs and less curvy wurvy once we came down by Harmon Den to 40. We visited the River Arts studios in Asheville for the first time and will be back - hundreds of artists! Namaste.
Becky & from Chapel Hill, NC - Posted: 11/4/2020
"We had a great time in the cabin! We enjoyed sitting out on the back porch, hiking the property trails, driving the Blue Ridge Parkway, hiking various trails, and visiting the Biltmore. It was an excellent honeymoon! And a nice retreat from society during the pandemic! "
Trevor & from Fort Wayne, IN - Posted: 11/4/2020
The location is secluded and the perfect size for two. We had a maintenance issue but received a quick response. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness - kitchen was well stocked.
Alan S from Brookhaven, GA - Posted: 10/23/2020
"Absolutely loved our time at the cabin. We really enjoyed the quaint cottage we stayed in! We love Asheville and visited there often as children on family vacations. The location of our cottage was super convenient to any attraction we were interested in and right off of Interstate 40. The grounds were beautifully kept and just enough to wander about as we needed to. Parking was handy as well. The 3 steps down to the cottage were maneuverable, the best thing for us was that we all could sleep kids or grandkids. Beautifully renovated property, not too much to destroy the character, just enough to modernize some things...loved the farm/apron sink in the kitchen, bathroom sinks and shower tub surround..... would stay again but needed a longer time to rest, relax and explore (that's on us😊😊😊) "
John R from Raleigh, NC - Posted: 10/7/2020
"We really enjoyed our time at the cabin, especially the sounds of the river, wood burning fireplace, fishing, oh yes and the hot tub! We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. Everything was in good working order and the kitchen was well stocked."
John W from Winston Salem, NC - Posted: 9/26/2020
"The location of this property is amazing - secluded in the woods, yet close to town, hiking, and the Blue Grass Parkway. The sound of the creek was so peaceful, we left the back door open constantly while we were there to enjoy the sound! Truly a perfectly cozy cabin nestled in a fairy-tale like setting! I am definitely hoping to come back in the future. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star furnishings and bedding - kitchen was well stocked."
Teah E from Gallipolis, OH - Posted: 9/7/2020
" Came for a little get away. Loved the charm of this place - so serene. Enjoyed coffee on the porch - the hot tub - walking down to the gorgeous river. Such a neat place. Went out exploring - Blue Ridge Parkway, local breweries & shops - Burnsville was neat. One of our favorite things we did was the Zen tubing - the more scenic one - south. Going home with a lot more stuff than we came with! Especially beer! And definitely going home very relaxed which we both needed badly. Will definitely return. Thank you!"
Linda & from Sarasota, FL - Posted: 8/17/2020
"Hi! I'm Ella & I'm 9! My family came to visit Asheville. I love this place! Today is our 1st time here and 1st day here. I caught 3 little fish! I released them too! & a con about this place is THE STAIRS!!! Soo Steep! We love this place we will come back soon Rating: 5 STARS"
Ella B from Winston Salem, NC - Posted: 8/12/2020
"We came up from Jacksonville Florida to decompress and that's exactly what we did! He recently finished MBA & I just needed to ""get the hell outta Dodge"" for a little bit. With COVID 19 seemingly everywhere, we went out very little to see the Asheville sights, and that's just fine by me. I truly enjoyed the firefly light show, cheese plate & Bloody Marys in the hot tub, exploring the woods at the river, and the tranquil sounds. I don't know that we're more in love, though we certainly are more relaxed, which is truly a gift. I hope we'll return!"
Adam & from Orange Park, FL - Posted: 7/21/2020
The cabin was wonderful. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings - kitchen was well stocked. We were very satisfied with how quickly our hot tub issue was resolved.
Helen G from Sydney, OH - Posted: 7/21/2020
What a beautiful setting. Very peaceful and relaxing from the craziness of life. Asheville is our second home. Loved the river!
Adam R from Punta Gorda, FL - Posted: 7/9/2020
"We absolutely fell in love with this cabin. The fishing is good, too - Rivertime is so close to most attractions that we really did have a proper adventure. Fishing, Hiking, Horseback riding, Shopping, Tubing, Campfire s'mores. We can't wait to come back!"
Morgan & from Reidsville, GA - Posted: 6/19/2020
We were so excited to return to Rivertime for our tenth anniversary w/ our labs! We had big plans for a big trip that COVID-19 changed abruptly. We knew we could get away together for a peaceful weekend and enjoy the beautiful creek & mountains & nearby Asheville & the Blue Ridge Parkway. Thanks again!
Amy & from Matthews, NC - Posted: 6/1/2020
"We played 13 rounds of rummy, which Sally won. We ate here on our mini moon, as some others have been too We enjoyed this cute cabin & explored the surrounding woods & river while here. We mainly cooked and relaxed - watched LSU beat Clemson, enjoyed the hot tub & watched The Switch Up. We ventured into town to eat at Curate - so very good! We treated ourselves to new leather goods at TOPS for Shoes and we cannot wait to begin our married journey in Columbia SC, We will be back!"
Sally & from Columbia, SC - Posted: 1/23/2020
Our 24th wedding anniversary! Your cabin was a wonderful getaway from the world. Thank you for sharing it with us.

"Called off wedding & needed to escape. Been going to Asheville for 20 years since a kid. This visit was to heal I have never laughed so hard with a friend in so long. This cabin was perfect, it was so cozy & had all we needed to relax & enjoy the days in nature. Thank you for this perfect getaway!!"
Chera B from Atlanta, GA - Posted: 11/27/2019
"We both came here (and to Asheville) to celebrate Shane's upcoming birthday. We brought our 1 year old Boston Terrier ""Buffy"" with us. The cabin is cozy, and the creek is wondrous. I am very afraid of heights and have been walking up & down the mountainous drive-way. LOL."
Robert H from Charlotte, NC - Posted: 10/23/2019
"Such a ""FANTASTIC"" week here at Riverside. This trip for us was a celebration . . . A ""kick-off"" so to speak. We have spent 28 years together making a life and raising a family. We have two beautiful and amazing children that are finding their way in this world and have officially flown the nest. One is making her way thru Grad school and one is starting his undergrad degree (UF, GoGators!) So now we find our schedule less crazy and our home much more quiet. We have time for each other again (What is that ?!?!) So this trip was to celebrate how very proud we are of our kids and how grateful we are for this next ""phase"" in our journey. Thanks for a beautiful start to this journey Rivertime! ""Cheers to the Empty Nester Years"""
David K from Fort Myers, FL - Posted: 10/11/2019
"I am not sure how many guests actually read this notebook, but I have read it and like so many others I found peace here. Back home we have six children, so life back home in Ohio is very demanding. We have been married for four months and it took a lot of time and preparation for us to make this Honeymoon happen, but it was JUST what we needed!!! I feel as though we chose the perfect place! Coffee in the mornings on the deck just listening to the creek and the birds is my idea of ultimate relaxation! Also sitting on the deck and just talking without interruption except for the occasional deer or squirrel helped us become closer as a couple! We only went to the Biltmore Estate (which was ABSOLUTELY worth it). The rest of the time we spent here at the cabin. This has been the best Honeymoon any wife could ask for! From cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner together to exploring the creek and woods together to relaxing in the peace and quiet on the deck or in the hot tub! ""You can't live your life for other people. You've got to do what's right for you, even if it hurts some people you love."" -- The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks"
Travelers from Zanesville, OH - Posted: 9/18/2019
"We arrived Thursday evening for a long anticipated extended weekend away from the hustle of daily life. The musty smell upon opening the door reminded us of antique stores or long forgotten books, but it fades after time. The cabin and grounds were exactly as advertised, perfect! A quick walk down to the creek revealed tracks from various animals and the flowing water over rocks gave such a sense of peace. A few moments in the hot tub to relax all the stress away then falling asleep to the sound of rain on the roof was the perfect way to end the day. Waking Friday morning to sounds of the creek and coffee on the deck was better than any TV commercial could convey. A day of ""gold panning"" (rock collecting) in the creek followed by a 5 star dinner was exceptional. Saturday brought more relaxation and togetherness, things we had taken for granted in our busy scheduled life. I'm not sure what the rest of the weekend will bring before we depart Monday morning, but I do know that we will be back! Thank You Rivertime!"
Chanin H from Troutman, NC - Posted: 9/10/2019

Rebecca C from Hickory , NC - Posted: 8/20/2019
"Spent a wonderful honeymoon here at Rivertime! Enjoyed breakfast at Biscuit Head, dinner at Collaboratory and drinks at Antidote (my favorite). Climbed to the very top of Grandfather Mountain, hiked down to Linville Falls and enjoyed a leisurely stroll through the Biltmore Estate. We will definitely be making more trips to Asheville."
Elizabeth M - Posted: 7/30/2019

JW+HS from Wilson , NC - Posted: 5/27/2019
"As we approached our shelter for the coming week we were overjoyed by the location and lack of other travelers. During our stay we scouted the surrounding woods, meeting an opossum and finding some much loved morel mushrooms. We foraged with a tribe one day, saving the village with oyster mushrooms that we found. We took in the grandeur of the Biltmore home and lands and also went to see the local wildlife of WNC. Overall our scouting mission went perfectly. We do not entirely wish to leave our hidden shelter but we are due back with our report for the others."

Kevin C from Charleston, SC - Posted: 4/12/2019
"This place is the perfect honeymoon for us and Fido! We don't want to leave! Thanks for sharing. What a peaceful place this is! Although it didn't get extremely cold, I built a couple of fires and it almost got too hot inside the cabin - had to open the windows - that fireplace rocks!! Truly secluded - something we have been searching for in a cabin - being backpackers we like our privacy."
Kris from Columbia, SC - Posted: 4/10/2019

We came here to North Carolina to marry at the Devils Courthouse. We love the mountains and all that this area has to offer. The cabin was a beautiful rustic getaway for our stay. We began our life together here in this cabin and it was everything we dreamed of. Can't wait to be back!
David B from Derry, NH - Posted: 11/7/2018
"After a long 6 months of being long distance, this cabin was the perfect place to enjoy each other again. Highly recommend Packs Tavern in Asheville and Biscuit Head for breakfast! We spent the whole day driving through the Great Smoky Mountains, The views are INCREDIBLE. We will definitely be returning! Thank you Rivertime for allowing us to enjoy each other again!! :)"
Katy & from Pittsburgh, PA - Posted: 10/25/2018
"Arriving as Hurricane Florence is passing through. Rained all night, but the sun came out in the morning. :) Spent the day in Asheville, The trolley ride is very informative. Did a lot of hiking on the blue ridge, visited The Biltmore Estate. We stayed 5 nights so we could check out a lot out. Love the cabin and love the river, it was very high when we got here but looks back to normal. Now it's back to Ohio! "

Rivertime was the perfect place to spend out honeymoon! We loved spending our mornings having coffee on the back porch while there listening to the river. It was so nice to have this cozy cabin to come back to after spending our days exploring the hustle and bustle of downtown Asheville which is amazing. We also loved Well Bred Bakery in Weaverville as well. They have eclairs as big as your head! Thank you for the wonderful place to stay - we will cherish the memories we have of our first days fo marriage here and we plan to return for many anniversaries to come.

"I want to mention that the courtesy and service extended by the CM staff was outstanding and second to none that I have experienced in years of travel. My reservation was initially made by phone and I had a number of interactions with staff before my stay. Each and every time I called and regardless of who I spoke to, the experience was positive. CM staff were unilaterally positive, pleasant and helpful. CM staff were just great and I congratulate management on assembling and keeping such a fine crew! We enjoyed our holiday weekend in Asheville and sincerely thank you for doing all that you could to make it a wonderful experience for us."

Having the time of our lives in this peaceful place! Even doing the dishes is more enjoyable here. My husband and I are on our first long trip without our kids. It's been so wonderful to go exploring during the day and relax here together at night. It was the perfect choice. Wish I could take the sound of the river home with me.

Andrew M - Posted: 9/22/2016
"Loved our time here. My husband and I had the perfect getaway trip and we have Rivertime to thank. We spend a great deal of time on the porch listening to the babbling river and the sounds of many birds. We even spotted several pairs of birds, ducks, Canadian geese, cardinals and crows. From the color patterns of a couple you could surely tell they were male and female. The cabin is cozy, rustic, as well as very romantic. Hard to live Rivertime but will be back again. "
Dianna G - Posted: 7/12/2016
We had a wonderful time this weekend! Romantic getaway and our dog loved the river.
Kim & - Posted: 7/12/2016
I wanted to do something special for my 20th anniversary. A friend recommended we stay in Asheville so I searched around and found Carolina Mornings site. Rivertime cabin looked ideal for the two of us so I called the office. Carmen was so friendly and helpful. She walked me through the whole process. I will say this... PRINT THE INSTRUCTIONS before traveling. The instructions say to do so and I did... And I ended up having to use them. I programmed the address they sent but it took me to their office in downtown Asheville. So after rummaging through my papers I found the printed directions and HAD to rely on them. Where we stayed there is no address. In fact when I pinned it on my gps it saved it as longitude and latitude. The cabin itself was like something in a fantasy... Isolated cabin uphill from a babbling brook. Most time we just opened the back door and listened to the river and felt at ease. It was clean it was comfortable and it was unlike anything I've ever experienced on a vacation. We will most definitely be back

"From day one when I typed ""cabins in Asheville"" in Google and clicked on Carolina Mornings everything was exceptional. The website was very easy to use and had great pictures of each location. I called and spoke to Tim who provided world class customer service. His local knowledge of places to visit such as breweries and live music venues was great and very helpful. I had additional questions that were quickly answered by using the chat feature on the site and also calling and speaking to Jessica. The Carolina Mornings app was very user friendly and an added bonus to the trip. I can't say enough great things about this company, the employees I interacted with, and let's not forget how amazing the cabin (Rivertime) itself was. I appreciate the time your company takes with all details that helped make our trip something to remember. I have and will continue to spread the word about Carolina Mornings. I will be a return customer in the near future. Great Job!!"

"We stayed here 9 years ago, shortly after having just gotten married. Coming back after all these years felt like coming back home. We enjoyed the familiarity of the cabin and the surrounding area, but also appreciated some of the updates. We also enjoyed new adventures - hiking in Big Ivy and horseback riding at Sandy Bottom. Even ventured downtown and treated ourselves to homemade ice cream served at Weaverville Pharmacy. What a relaxing and fun time! We hope to return next spring! "

"My husband surprised me with this trip for my 30th birthday. I have lived in North Carolina for 11 years and had never been to Asheville or the Biltmore! After growing up in the mountains of Massachusetts, it was nice and nostalgic to be back in the trees with the sound of the running river outside our window. Thanks for a great location! "
