Seclusion is perfect
If you’re looking for SECLUSION, this is the cabin for you. It has amazing views and a cozy feel. You NEED 4wd in the winter/rain. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Little Escape in the Woods
Perfect little escape up in the woods, highly recommend!

Sunsets here are amazing
The cabin is remote and beautiful. Little details welcome you and make you feel comfortable! There were extra towels and space heaters in the front entryway/office/bedroom closet (behind the door to the living room). Sitting on the screened porch and eating breakfast or watching the sunset was a huge highlight. We could only see neighbors by their house lights at night! And probably only 4 others houses around the mountain near us, if that. It was wonderful to be away from it all and surrounded by nature. The rental portal was easy and convenient and we screen shot-ed everything for offline use. Thanks for having us!

Very Quiet
Wonderful stay! Very quiet and peaceful! If you want a place in the woods, this is the place for you! While sitting on the porch, you feel as if you are in the treetops! They have a game camera pointed towards the front door, which felt very invasive, but can easily be covered.
Amber D from Irvine, CA - Posted: 6/29/2022 - Stayed from: 5/19/2022 to 5/22/2022
Romantic Getaway
My partner and I had such a wonderful stay here! This is a beautifully designed home with everything you could need. Our favorite amenity from this trip was definitely the hot tub, as its location on the property allows you to look at the stars at night. Overall, this place is in a perfect location for a romantic getaway. It's secluded enough to have privacy and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but not too far away from Asheville whenever we wanted to drive into town or explore other parts of the area. Make sure you read their detailed check-in/navigation instructions however, as getting to the property can be slightly tricky ( (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps does not work, but Apple Maps can get you almost all the way there). We picked this place on a whim, but I'm so glad it worked out. You will not regret staying here!

Grow Closer To Loved Ones
Serenity Escape gave us time and distance from our daily lives to grow closer to each other.
Katy T from USA - Posted: 3/24/2022
Great Location
The property was in a great location and came with all of the necessary amenities and more. We really enjoyed our time here. The hot tub and grill were our favorite aspects of the property.
Tamia R from Irvine, CA - Posted: 3/3/2022
Loved the Property
Had a wonderful time. It's incredible you all built this by hand and the love shows. We'll miss sitting in the hot tub under the stars.
Tamia R from Irvine, CA - Posted: 2/25/2022
"Everything was so clean, I mean spotless. We had everything we could have needed to start out with, which being 20 minutes from town, was very appreciated. Location was great, the Hot Tub was amazing, just overall great property. The guest app was easy to use and helpful. The check in process was great and smooth. The only things to mention that could be improved would be more seating in the living area and adding a washer and dryer for guests. Many people have already asked about the house we stayed at and which company we used to book our stay. We have already shared Carolina Mornings contact info with our friends and family. This home was the perfect size for our family of four and two small dogs. My girls loved the house too."
Katherine M from Georgetown, SC - Posted: 11/15/2021
Hello Katherine, Thank you for your feedback, and we're glad you enjoyed the home! In response to your review, the homeowner has added a washer and dryer for guests as well as additional seating area. We hope you otherwise had a great time at Serenity Escape and thank you again for your review!
