Description

This perfect mountain hideaway provides hours of relaxation and fun! A beautiful winding stone pathway passes the garden ponds and brings you to the relaxing front porch. As you enter the cabin, you are at peace with the world! The hand-hewn logs and many windows bring the warmth of nature inside. The great room centers around the kitchen and wood-burning stone fireplace, truly the heart of the log home. Outside, the swing and rocking chairs are the perfect spots to enjoy the private and serene woodland setting.

The lower level features a spectacular antique pine bar with a pool table and dartboard. Double doors lead outside to the secluded hot tub and fire pit. The second stone patio has an outdoor pizza oven and fire pit with a nearby picnic table and horseshoes. Many fruit trees, berry bushes, grapevines, and an organic garden are available for the "pickins." The cabin also has an outdoor hanging queen bed that's perfect for that afternoon nap. Off the bar is the "cork room" with a queen-sized bed and full bath. The open loft upstairs is the master suite. From the king bed, morning views of the mist in the distant mountains are spectacular. There is a TV and a telescope for stargazing. The room with two twins adjoins the master suite and is also open to the living area below. The twin loft also has a large TV. The upper deck with two rocking chairs is an ideal spot for morning coffee. The outdoor queen-sized hanging bed is just right for afternoon naps.

Located within the private community of Gateway Mountain in Old Fort, you'll have exclusive access to the waterfall park and Lake George access. Serenity Cabin is an easy 3-minute drive to Lake George, where you can leisurely swim, canoe, fish, or tube from Serenity Cabin's private dock where excellent "catch and release" fishing is allowed on this beautiful 7-acre community lake. Serenity is only a short hike to the neighborhood waterfall, one of the best in western North Carolina. You're also 20 minutes to Catawba Falls. Make sure you stop by GoGo's in Old Fort for delicious homemade cinnamon rolls. Serenity Cabin is approximately 10-15 minutes from Old Fort and 30-35 minutes from the charming towns of Black Mountain and Marion.

You'll love exploring the local shops, restaurants, and breweries in downtown Marion. If you're looking to enjoy some nightlife, check out Marion's Mica Town Brewing Company, Refinery 13 Taproom, and Spillway Bridge & Co. Black Mountain also boasts 3 local breweries: Pisgah Brewing, Lookout Brewing, and Black Mountain Brewing, along with incredible restaurants like Foothills Butcher Bar, Louise's Kitchen, and Black Mountain Bistro. Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock, and Lake Lure are all within a 45-minute drive.

Please Note: The King bedroom does not have a door and is open to the living area below. Greybeard homes are located near Pisgah National Forest. Ladybugs and Kudzu Beetles may be seen in our area in the fall and winter months, and it is not uncommon for them to find their way into homes to escape the cooler weather from time to time. They are not poisonous and cannot be exterminated. This home has a private floating dock on Lake George, but you will need to bring your own canoe, kayak, or float to enjoy the lake.

During the colder winter months, icy and/or snowy road conditions and delayed snow plow operations are possible within the development. From December through March, please come prepared with AWD or 4WD vehicles. We also recommend travel insurance for those staying in the Gateway Mountain development during the winter months. No parking is allowed on roadways or at gate entrances. No RVs, boat trailers, camping trailers, or trailers of any kind are permitted in the Gateway Mountain Community.

Property policy: the primary guest must be at least 25 years old

"We didn’t stay the last night because the cabin was set up in a very uncomfortable weird fashion. I don’t usually bother reviewing, but the price we were charged simply doesn’t fit well with the cabin. One poorly lit broken shower, the only room with privacy on the bottom floor next to the pool table, cramped weirdly lit main area. This cabin seems to have been designed by a 10 year old. Plus there were fairly dangerous issues with the balcony not being connected at all in one spot. There is an awful lot to complain about but why bother? I’m guessing you won’t post this comment because I didn’t see any negative reviews about this place and I’m sure you have heard plenty of them."

"We had a fantastic time celebrating my and my pups birthdays. Upon arriving we discovered the 8 ball was missing and they were quick to respond and bring us one the next day. The cabin is awesome! We got to get in the hot tub multiple times, it's a little dated but still did the job. (Stronger jets would have been nicer but not a deal breaker). We had a fire in the wood burning fireplace every day, one of the days it rained the whole day so we had a fire the entire day! The house was clean and well taken care of. The views are amazing! Kitchen is well stocked except no pot holders! Definitely need to bring a few pot holders if you plan to cook. (Unless they decide to supply them) also maybe bring an extra kitchen towel or two. We cooked all of our meals there so a fully stocked kitchen was a must. The directions from the rental agency to the cabin are a bit hard to follow, just make sure you pay very close attention! We got lost a few times but we were able to find it eventually.... it was also raining hard so that was an issue. There is only a tub in the upstairs bathroom and the only shower is all the way downstairs (3 floors). Downstairs is a little chilly as the wood burning stove was out of order. With all of these things, still give this place a 5 star! Very relaxing and beautiful property. The waterfall on the mountain was amazing, we never even saw another person on our hike. Didn't get to go to the lake because it was so wet and nasty, it's a steep walk and we didn't want to have issues coming back up. Already planning our next trip."

"This was our first time booking with Grey Beard Rentals, and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The communication was impeccable from the beginning. We received all needed information through one phone call and updated text and email messages. The online information about the property was correct and we encountered no surprises. The Serenity Cabin is one of the nicest places we have stayed. The cabin was clean and well-stocked with games, kitchen supplies, toiletries start-up kit, etc. We were celebrating our 23rd Wedding Anniversary, and had a congratulations card signed by all of the staff waiting on us upon arrival. We will definitely return to Old Fort and will book with Grey Beard again! One suggestion for future guests...Take note of Grey Beard's information that AWD/4WD is needed for a few properties, and is definitely needed for winter weather. If you have AWD/4WD like we do, you are all set! If not, just ask about the property. More than likely, you will be just fine."

"We felt like this would have been a great cabin with a little TLC. The grill wasn't clean, nor was the pizza oven. The hammock was moldy, dry-rotted, and had a hole in it, so none of us would trust it. The Dish Network was out for the entire stay even though we reset the box. The ponds were green and could have used some attention as could the back porch area where vines are taking over. The recliner has a very loose arm and seemed like it shouldn't be trusted and the mattress on the king bed was very worn and lumpy, causing some backaches. Ultimately, the inside of the cabin was clean and the pictures were accurate. With a little attention, it would be a really amazing cabin."

"This place was as good as the pictures show! Booking and arrival/departure were so easy. The remote location and spectacular views made our vacation everything that we needed. We were a tad disappointed that the path to the lake was overgrown and we were unable to access the floating dock by land. The waterfall access made up for that though!"

"We enjoyed the cabin but not everything was as advertised. We couldn't hike or canoe because the trail to the lake was overgrown and impassible. We drove to Lake George, but the canoe was unusable because it lacked seats and was full of spiders and cobwebs. The cabin itself was clean and beautiful, but the landscaping was so overgrown that it obstructed the view of the mountains. It was sad seeing such a unique cabin with such untended and decrepit landscaping."

"My family and I had a great time at Serenity Lake Cabin! It's in a wonderful, peaceful location. The cabin itself is beautiful, clean, and well-appointed, with almost all the linens and kitchen supplies that you could possibly need, and there's also a small selection of books, DVDs and games. The pool table and hot tub were nice amenities too. Overall it's a great place to stay, whether you're settling in to spend quality time with family, or touring around the area's attractions. We're definitely planning on coming back!"
