Important Property Notes
• 4WD or AWD Required: Often the best views in WNC are the hardest to get to. The property you are staying at requires a 4WD or AWD vehicle to access year round due to the steep driveway. Please ensure that your vehicle is properly equipped and the 4WD/AWD feature is engaged before attempting to access the property. Vehicles that are not equipped with this feature may incur service charges for towing if they get stuck, or for repairs to the driveway necessitated by a 2WD vehicle spinning for traction. Please ensure your vehicle has sufficient clearance as well (i.e. SUV, Truck, or raised sedan). Low-clearance vehicles with 4WD/AWD are not recommended. For the extra effort, however, you are rewarded with seclusion, beauty, and a lot of fun just getting there!
• Travel Insurance 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.
• Seasonal Gas Fireplaces are not operational between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
• Firewood is not provided for guest use. If you plan on using the outdoor fire pit, you'll need to bring firewood with you.

It was a wonderful place to stay and not hard to find. My family and I greatly enjoyed the views, hot tub, and fire pit while we were there.
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We came here from Fayetteville, North Carolina. Originally we are from Ukraine. We love these mountains and we loved the gorgeous views from the balcony. We hope to come back here soon!
We loved spending our weekend in the mountains and in this beautiful cabin with gorgeous views. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable and fun stay. Thank you!
My fiance and family come to celebrate our fifth-year anniversary and are so glad we picked here to relax and unwind. So peaceful!
My fiancé and I wanted to unplug from city life and this was perfect. The scenery was beautiful and secluded. The house was well furnished and clean, little touches like an unopened sponge seem trivial, but after staying in some other Airbnb's it’s so thoughtful. The game room was a plus we didn’t play a lot, but our 2-year-old had fun trying to learn how to foosball, and being able to relax in the hot tub with breathtaking views was everything.
Peaceful mountain retreat! Had an amazing time at this place, away from all the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to have a good time. We were treated to bear sightings every single morning, making it that much more incredible!
You are a beautiful cabin, with awesome views! The hot tub was nice. We had a blast staying here.
Simply amazing, we enjoyed the Chimney Rock and Biltmore house. We roasted smores and had some laughs, everything was awesome!
Wow! Such a tremendous vacation for our family of five! The views are absolutely amazing. Peace and tranquility truly allowed us to unplug and enjoy the beautiful land God created for us all to enjoy! We could not have asked for a better cabin, location, setting, or amenities. Please know that we all enjoyed everything - the fire(pit), hot tub, sunrises, evenings, and easy access to quaint towns and excellent hiking!
What a perfect cabin with a perfect view. We enjoyed spending our weekend here. The cabin was so clean and the view is awesome! Thank you for sharing with us. I have to cook and the kitchen has just about everything. The decoration is beautiful. We will be back soon.
We had an amazing time! It was too short of a stay and we will be back next time. Hopefully to see the snow.
We walked into this beautiful place and saw all the best features. The rooms are amazing and we love playing games in the basement. The kitchen has everything you could possibly even need! Our dog enjoyed it too. Thank you
We had an amazing time here! This cabin is so awesome! Asheville is so close to fun shopping and food, and all hikes are within 20 to 40 minutes away! We loved our stay and enjoyed all the features it offered.
Thank you so much for letting us enjoy this beautiful cabin! We are two newlyweds getting a break from work and this was the perfect place to reconnect! We enjoyed the morning mountain views with coffee, the cozy fireplace, and soaking up the hot tub! Thanks for being dog friendly as well. We hiked in The Pisgah National Forest. This is truly a special and beautiful place and we hope to be back.
The house is very beautiful and nice. Clean and magnificent. We had a wonderful time and the view is gorgeous!
There are no words to adequately describe the beauty and wonder that surrounds this lovely home in the mountains. We are so blessed and very thankful. We created lasting memories and experiences with adventures lived on. We appreciate your hospitality and generosity.
Very beautiful and nice. Clean and magnificent. We had a wonderful time, the cabin and view is gorgeous!
The cabin was fantastic, everything was clean and tidy. The view was wonderful, and there was plenty of space. We had a great time, the cabin was perfect. Thank you so much!
Fantastic home on a Beautiful mountain. We did trips to chimney rock, Ashville, and Hendersonville. Fun tons and shopping and several great breweries. We will be back.
Outstanding experience and beautiful property. Just what you're looking for in a mountain getaway
The Mountain views were incredible!
Five high school friends, getting back together for the first time in 28 years, couldn't have found a better spot. The cabin was exactly as described. Fire pit, jacuzzi, views, etc. They weren't kidding about the gravel road to the cabin needed 4WD. Couldn't recommend it more!
Had a wonderful long weekend with the family. It is quite remote on a long winding gravel road. A 4 wheel drive is highly recommended. A beautiful view of the mountains and able to see chimney rock with the binoculars! Downstairs rec room is perfect for social evenings with the family.
Beautiful cabin with amazing views. You truly do feel close to heaven. The drive up/down the mountain was a little scary for this Georgian but worth it. Chimney Rock is a beautiful quaint little town. We loved the Burntshirt Winery. Lord willing we shall return soon!
"Stayed in many rentals but none as well-stocked, easy to book and communicate and offers such an experience! "
"As advertised! Great views, well maintained, and very family-friendly. "
"Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. We came here to celebrate 3 birthdays, 1 pregnancy, and 8 friends. We enjoyed the game room, the views and all the beautiful nature we are surrounded by. "
"There is celebrating a special birthday, and then there is celebrating a special birthday in a cabin in the mountains of North Carolina. What a delightful way to enjoy a week with friends, family & fortunately no bears! "
Thank you for an amazing visit to your home. We came here to celebrate one year post-op of brain surgery and could not have asked for a more perfect (!!) place to be. Great home - full of home-like touches that made it perfect! We will be back - God willing and good health!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us! We absolutely loved everything about it! It was the perfect retreat. We will definitely be coming back!
Thank you for a beautiful place for family to celebrate our wedding. We got married in Hendersonville this weekend & this was our home base. Loved the porch & the spacious gathering areas. We will definitely be back!
Beautiful cabin and stunning views! We had a wonderful visit. Loved exploring Lake Lure and Chimney Rock. Thank you for sharing this little piece of heaven!
"What a lovely home! We are going to miss the views, hot tub, and fun! We visited Chimney Rock and did lots of hikes. Great place and super clean. Thank you. "
"While a challenge to get to (don't miss that first left!), this property and the surrounding area are absolutely beautiful. Our stay looked just like the pictures: full sun, mountain views, and very close to amazing hikes in the area. I'd recommend local tubing!"
"Amazing stay at this uber charming cabin! First I want to say: They were NOT joking when they highly recommended 4WD - the trek up is all dirt/gravel roads, and if it had been raining our truck would not have made it up. However it is definitely worth it for the view and how comfortable the cabin was. Well stocked with kitchen and bathroom necessities. Very comfortable beds. Love that it was pet friendly - they even provided a portable doggy dish and leash if you forgot one to take your pup on a hike! All of the guests had nothing but good things to say about this place and we’ll likely be back again!"
"Had a great stay, roof did leak in a few places after a light snow storm that provided us a white Christmas. Beds were comfortable and kitchen had all appliances we needed."
The kitchen was stocked very well!
"Amazing experience-the house, the view-everything we could have hoped for a more! Loved to game room downstairs and the fire pit - absolutely enjoyed every minute of it and will definitely be returning!"
"Great home with very nice views, property is close to several parks and waterfalls."
This was such a relaxing place. The view is amazing! Even though it rained we could still relax outside in the hot tub. At night we sat outside on the giant balcony and looked at the stars and then enjoyed all the games in the game room. Sleeping arrangements were plentiful and well spaced. Bring firewood and coffee!😃
"Beautiful, well equipped cabin on top of a mountain with a heavenly view. Property was very clean and no detail was left out. We would go back in a heartbeat! A++"
We really had a wonderful time at stairway to heaven. It is a little ways from either Hendersonville or Asheville. And they are serious about four whee drive. It is a necessity. But the property is perfect the view is amazing. You will leave there refreshed.
"Thank you for sharing your little piece of heaven with us. We celebrated my daughter in laws 30th birthday here and enjoyed every aspect of your beautiful cabin. It's very comfortable, accommodating, with plenty of space for all of us. We enjoyed the hot tub and the fire pit, making memories that last a lifetime. "
"What an amazing trip! We had the “Stairway to Heaven” cabin rental- it was the best-equipped cabin we’ve stayed in yet, awesome kitchen and amenities (not to mention the awesome sunrises on the porch over the mountains!). Reservations and maintenance were very responsive and helpful in assisting our needs and questions during the stay. Definitely coming back and going through this rental again in the future!"
"We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness, furnishings and bedding - kitchen was well stocked."
"Very clean and cozy! Well stocked. My husband and I felt right at home as soon as we walked in. The property is located near many hiking trails and the views from the balcony are gorgeous! We loved the view and how clean it was! Would definitely love to stay here again! We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness, furnishings and bedding."
"Loved the view, and the maintenance of the property was awesome. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star cleanliness - kitchen was well stocked."
The cabin was exactly as you see in the pictures. It was clean and everything was in perfect working order. So peaceful and the view was amazing. I would highly recommend this cabin. The drive up the gravel road to the house is no joke. Adhere to the 4 wheel or all wheel drive.
"Stairway to Heaven - it is! This positive ION location and loving vibe of a home can cure or enhance the heart for certain - love birds watching - listening - stargazing - sun rise & sets. This is a special cabin - complete with flower cutting garden and prime fire pit location! JUST STAY HOME! This is a great community so beware of the urge to get up and go! But just staying home in this beautiful retreat satisfies! Check out ""La Strada"", Lake Lure & Black Mtn downtown, hike Rumbling Bald & Bear Wallow Mtn."
The cabin is wonderful - we loved the view! 5-star cleanliness and furnishings - kitchen was well stocked. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend.
"Loved the great location and view. Appreciated how dog friendly it was. Kitchen was well stocked, 5-star cleanliness. We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings - we would recommend. "
The house is stunning inside and out! It had every possible thing you could need and the location was perfect. The house and views are worth the 4WD. I would stay here again - loved the house and the view. Everything was as advertised and it met our needs perfectly. 5-star cleanliness and furnishings - kitchen well stocked. Very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and rental property - would recommend.
"Our family had an amazing time in your cabin. We were here celebrating our son's 18th Birthday. Happy Birthday Jacob. The cabin is absolutely beautiful, the views are breathtaking. We enjoyed Chimney Rock, Skiing at Cataloochee Ski resort & strolling through Asheville. The kids enjoyed the hot tub & playing pool with their friends. We also enjoyed the fire & roasting marshmallows. The sunrise is beautiful. My husband and I enjoyed it every morning and the bunnies eating each morning was cute. We cannot wait to come back, wish we could stay longer. Thank you for opening up your cabin to our family and our fur baby Kasper too."
"Absolutely wonderful vacation! The house was incredible, had everything you needed for a mountain escape. Beautiful bathroom facilities, large completely outfitted kitchen and the scenery was stunning! "
"Awesome place, great proximity to hiking and town (Chimney Rock). Great weekend."
Thank you for opening your beautiful cabin to us ... What a great way to spend our 10 year anniversary! We loved the views and waking up to see the sunrise every day. We hope to come back again and enjoy the cabin for a longer period of time!
"Perfect vacation spot in the mountains. House is comfortable and dog-friendly (and NC is dog-friendly too!) Beautiful sunrises off the deck every morning. Lots to do in the area - hiking, mountain biking, boating, tubing, kayaking, Biltmore Estate is a must see. Hidden treasures near the house - Lake Lure, Town of Chimney Rock has a trail along the brook behind the stores, the garden bridge between Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. We will be back."
"I want to offer a heartfelt thank you for allowing us to rent you beautiful log home. It was one of the most treasured vacations I have ever taken. We got up every morning to watch the sunrise as it lit up Chimney Rock. The view is breathtaking, and the surrounding area has so much to offer. We saw wild turkeys as we were hiking the property with our dog. We visited the Biltmore Estate, Lake Lure - the garden bridge is amazing. Went tubing and cooked fantastic meals on the porch bar-b-que. We ended our days in the hot tub. We can't wait to come back!"
"Five Stars! We recently made our second visit to Stairway to Heaven and hope to have many more in the future. It was just the relaxing environment we were hoping to have. This is a MUST DO if you like spectacular views; quiet peaceful, secluded surroundings; but with all the amenities to make a wonderful vacation. The cabin (it is huge!) is immaculate, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything you need to hide away for a week or longer! Everything was in great working order, including the hot tub! It is clear this place is well maintained and feels home."
"Thank you for the lovely time we spent at your tastefully appointed mountain home in March of 2017. From the moment we walked in to the home I was very impressed by the immaculate cleanliness and space of the property. We had everything we needed once we got there, which included all the kitchen supplies anyone could imagine. The bottle of wine and chilled beer glasses were a very nice touch that all enjoyed! The deck lends spectacular views of the mountains, which is unobstructed with plenty of comfortable outdoor furniture to relax on as the sun rises and sets. Thank you for this magical time, we can't wait to return!"
"Our first visit to the mountains and it could not have been more perfect! The weather, the family, the perfect spot all combined to give us a wonderful lasting memory! I can't say how many times we said ""next time we come back"" ... Thank you for sharing your special spot with us. It was AMAZING!!"
Thank you for an absolutely wonderful long weekend. We chose your home for our mountain retreat for our last weekend before school starts. The views and your welcoming home were some of the finest. Some of our favorites this weekend... Zen Tubing in Asheville; Gem Mining and River Walking in Chimney Rock; Ziplining in Lake Lure; Seeing Chimney Rock; Checking out the craters in the moon through the binoculars; picking apples and blackberries! This will be a weekend we remember - thank you!
Our family enjoyed spending Father's Day in this beautiful house with an amazing view! We look forward to returning!
Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer. John Muir. We felt so much arrived and in peace up here and couldn't get enough of this spectacular view. The two days we had felt like so much more. Thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful retreat.
"What a wonderful place to be with family! Celebrated my husband's 70th birthday! The cabin is so lovely with a spectacular view!! Loved gazing at the stars at night! Just beautiful! Coming from Ohio it was such a treat! Weather was beautiful, too! Definitely not Ohio!! We hope to retire some day in this part of NC. Thank you for this lovely cabin!"
This cabin is really clean and interested! All noll is all real trees and bath is really good. We have to do hot tub and jacuzzi. And outside's fire is so good too. It is really good trip!!!!
An amazing time at such a beautiful location. The views were amazing and the home was gorgeous and very well kept. The approach to the home was even more exciting and really set the tone for the vacation. Very spacious and it gives you the real mountain log cabin experience. Just far enough away from civilization offering a peaceful and serene time but close enough to run out and grab anything that you may need from the local Food Lion and other convenient retail stores. And a short and exhilarating drive to Biltmore. We will be renting this home again and again for our yearly Thanksgiving vacation!
"Happy Birthday to our Sherry! And it was a big one. Loved Stairway to Heaven! We had an incredible time...Hiking, walking, 4-wheeling and celebrating! What a great place to celebrate with friends. You definitely weren't kidding about needing a 4WD vehicle. Spectacular view. Thank you for your hospitality. "
We enjoyed our stay. We visited Chimney Rock and Lake Lure. The house was perfect for our needs.
A very positive experience!
"We stayed at Stairway to Heaven and it was the perfect place for our family of five. The views off the back of the house were some of the best I've seen in this part of the state. The wrap around deck with hammock, outdoor hot tub, and fire pit were great. The house has lots of open floor space with a balcony overlooking the great room. There's a large game room downstairs with a pool table, foosball, and more. The kitchen is up to date with an impressive amount of supplies for all of your cooking and baking needs. While the house is secluded, it's only minutes to great hiking and outdoor adventures!"
"We stayed at Stairway to Heaven near Bat Cave and it was as perfect as a vacation can get. The house is even more impressive in person with an open floor plan and large balcony. There was plenty of room for two families of four. The kitchen and game rooms are well stocked and the hot tub and fire pit were great. The views are spectacular and we were privileged enough to be there for the Perseid. The balcony was the perfect viewing spot for the meteor show. While the home is secluded, it is a beautiful drive to the area towns and cities and we enjoyed daily adventures."
100% positive experience.
Place was amazing! Would stay again.
"Breathtaking views (once we recovered for the ""breathless drive up the hill!) This house was perfect for our blended groups of seven including 4 very active kids! After spending our days exploring what Asheville has to offer, it was wonderful to come back here and cook amazing dinners and relax on the deck, in the living room, or game room downstairs. "
"Thank you so much for sharing your home with us. Our two families had a great ""engagement week"" and got to take beautiful photos at Looking Glass Falls. We loved being able to bring our little fur baby, Rigby, as well. A few more lights out back would have been nice. We loved our hike at Little Bearwallow in Gerton. The Biltmore and Well-Bred Bakery in Biltmore are a much! Thank you so much; we look forward to future adventures. The views are simply serene. God Bless."
"Thank you for sharing your beautiful cabin with us. We've spent a wonderful week up here - even got to enjoy snow our first two days here! This was a perfect place to bring the family, even our furry kids. We can tell you how much you love dogs - thank you for letting us bring them! We can't wait to come back."
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had a wonderful time relaxing and hanging out with friends. We can't wait til next time.
We had a wonderful time. The views are amazing and the home is so relaxing. Sad to leave but we will be back! Thank you for a great stay.
"Great place with views! No complaints, will definitely use Carolina Mornings again!"
"Spent a relaxing weekend at the ""Stairway to Heaven"" house. Beautiful log house - perched near the top of the mountain overlooking the most beautiful view. Sunrise view is as good as it gets. Warm sunshine on the generous deck until early afternoon. House is clean, bed was good. Great kitchen with good working area. Good water pressure with unlimited hot water. Looking forward to going back when it is chilly enough to try out the beautiful fireplace."
Fantastic house! We loved the decor and the views off the deck are stunning!! If you are looking for a cozy place to escape to this is the place to go- so peaceful! The bedrooms are comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked and has very nice appliances. We had a great time cooking for a large group - there was plenty of room for everyone to enjoy hanging out and watching food being prepared. Make sure you bring your comfortable shoes for walking/hiking ! We will be back for sure!
