Description Description
A Sweet Cane River Retreat! Slow down and take a break at The Chicken Coop, the perfect vacation home if your family is looking to get away from it all but stay close to shopping and dining options. Located just outside of Burnsville on the edge of Pisgah National Forest, this private two-story home is a year-round destination to escape the rush of modern life and get back to nature.

Enjoy an idyllic vacation at The Chicken Coop with classic activities to pass the time such as grilling out for dinner and making S'mores over the fire pit for dessert. Cherish the valued opportunity to relax on the wrap-around deck and listen to the sound of the flowing river below, or get out and explore the abundance of outdoor activities nearby, including fishing on the stocked river, hiking, a nearby swimming hole, and river tubing if you're brave enough to jump in the freezing mountain water! In the evenings, guests can also enjoy the warmth of the hot tub under the rural night skies.

While the home's remote setting does offer a great place to unplug, The Chicken Coop keeps everyone well-connected with WiFi service and a landline phone. Picturesque in every season, The Chicken Coop offers a fun vacation experience for the whole family!

Important Property Notes
• The Chicken Coop is close enough to the river to walk there! Please use the road, not the steep stairs that go down the mountain from the cabin to the road. Guests with young children should be cautious regarding the dangerous incline of the stairs.
• While there is no central A/C, the home is usually kept very pleasant by the elevation, shade, and breeze. There are two fans and a window A/C unit upstairs for guests who prefer it a little cooler for sleeping.
• 4WD/AWD Recommended in Winter
During the winter months and inclement weather, a 4WD/AWD vehicle is recommended to access this property. Please ensure your vehicle has sufficient clearance (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!
• No Mountain Discovery Pass: Please note that The Chicken Coop does NOT include the Mountain Discovery Pass (the included Biltmore Ticket or other seasonal activities). We hope that you enjoy the low rental prices and beautiful area, even though these gifts are not included at this property!

Property Cancellation Policy
Please note that this property’s Non-Refundable Period is 31 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!

My family had a wonderful stay at this property.
My family had a wonderful stay at this property. We enjoyed the peace and the beautiful nature surrounding the cabin. The hot tub was great to relax in. Would recommend it if you’re looking for a nice relaxing place to recharge and get away.

We loved our cabin in Burnsville!
We loved our cabin in Burnsville; the river is across the street. Despite the weather, we were able to enjoy its waters. The charming and cozy cabin is recommended for a maximum of 4 people, although the sofa bed is available. The hot tub was wonderful during cold weather. Close to many attractions in both Asheville and Sugar Mountain and Beech Mountain, we will surely plan a vacation there again. A 4x4 vehicle is highly recommended to enter the cabin.

My family and I are from Florida and The Chicken Coop was a great place to stay.
My family and I are from Florida and The Chicken Coop was a great place to stay. Very secluded, but also close to your grocery needs. The place was well kept, but dogs were allowed, so there was a lot of dog hair left behind by other guests. I am a dog owner, but I do not allow my dogs into my bed which we did find hair in the bedding which I wasn't a huge fan of. If you can get past that this place is everything you could imagine. Very easy check-in process and the company was constantly in contact with reminders/updates. We did have a small issue with taking advantage of the mountain pass, but the 3rd party company handled it professionally and got us taken care of. If you're looking for this type of atmosphere this is the place to stay.

Awesome job!
I have stayed in many 4-star hotels around the world and this place was so clean I was hesitant to use the toilet. Awesome job!

Another pleasant stay at the Chicken Coop!
Another pleasant stay at the Chicken Coop! Even though it rained the entire time, we enjoyed relaxing in the tree tops. We plan on returning so we can enjoy the great outdoors. Cheers!

Highly recommend it and hopefully be back again!
I don’t know where to begin the Chicken Coop was an amazing place. I’m relocating to the area and need a place to stay. I loved how it’s tucked back in the woods. It was peaceful and relaxing. I could even hear the river from the window and outside deck. The size of the house was perfect for me, my dog, and my boyfriend. We also enjoyed grilling on the porch. My dog loved being outside and going to the river to play. She also met some nice people that were at the river and neighbors that loved on her and were sad to see her leave. Highly recommend it and hopefully be back again!

We like everything about the house.
We liked everything. The location of the house, and cleanliness in it. I especially liked that the house stands separately and with a good view of the river

Fantastic Weekend.
We loved our time here at the Chicken Coop. We went to the "Rope Hole" below the house and cooled off in the river, sat around the fire pit, and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Fantastic Weekend.
Nancy W from Statesboro, GA - Posted: 6/17/2022 - Stayed from: 6/10/2022 to 6/13/2022
Beautiful Place
Beautiful place, nice and cozy bedrooms, great view and place for entertainment on the river. Please be aware that there’s a steep road to the house and in the event of snow, you will need shovels to clear the way to be able to go out. During summer time this should be a great place to stay.

Remote Location
Wonderful remote location not too far from a small town that has everything you need if you forgot something for your vacation.

"We LOVED our stay at the Chicken Coop! We loved the view, the privacy and seclusion! Burnsville was such a nice little town for the super adventurous hikers. We highly recommend hiking at the Green River Gorge & Mount Mitchell - amazing views of nature! Our pups also really enjoyed their vacation too - playing in the creek down the road was a special memory. We hope to come back soon. God Bless! We had a very positive experience with Carolina Mornings and this property - we would recommend. 5-star bedding - kitchen was well stocked. "
Jaclyn B from Hobe Sound, FL - Posted: 11/24/2020
"Such a cute mountain getaway. We enjoyed the quiet location and serene mountain views, especially of the sun rising over the ridge line. Our favorite part of our stay was exploring nearby towns and local shops, eating burgers at Homeplace Brewery and winding down to a relaxing cup of tea while enjoying a late night movie. We loved the Chicken Coop!"
Patty & from Atlanta, GA - Posted: 11/5/2020

"Lovely, picturesque cabin tucked up on top of a hill - the perfect mountain retreat for our family!! It is as described in the pictures - a nice, clean space with a fantastic wrap around deck. Cane River right down the road is great for fishing and swimming!! It's the perfect getaway for nature walks and peaceful relaxation. We needed a calm place to relax, decompress & rejuvenate!! Long walks, drives on the country roads, and the river - all awesome!! We will book this space again in the future!! "
