Cold Mountain

For our anniversary this year we decided to rent a cabin in the mountains.  I looked online for something not too far in distance but away from everything.  I found quite a few near the Asheville area.  Cru said if we’re staying in the mountains I want it to look rustic, like we’re in the mountains!  So, I came across Cold Mountain Cabins.  We decided to take a chance on it.  It was about a 4.5 hour drive on a nice fall day.  The cabin is up on a mountain in Canton, NC. By the way, there is nothing in Canton except a paper mill.  The cabin owners had emailed us directions, so we make our way up the mountain on the gravel drive.  We didn’t need to use 4wd, but honestly, I don’t think my little Scion would have made it up there.  There are two cabins on either side of the drive, they are separated by trees.  We arrived at Noah’s cabin about 5pm where we were greeted by the Hubers.  The cabin was absolutely adorable!  It was like a little apartment with a full kitchen (dishes and everything included).  All of the furniture was Amish built wood.  There was a cute loft above suitable for kids and even an apartment sized washer/dryer combo (they also provided linens).  We had brought some of favorite Scarlet Fox wine, but we forgot the opener – but they had one.  The view from the porch was terrific!  There were two rocking chairs, a gas grill and a jacuzzi overlooking the mountains.

We had brought some groceries thinking we might not leave the cabin the whole time we were there.  The first night we made dinner and put on the tv (he can’t live without it!).  They only get on station, two channels.  There is a delay though, so you can watch Wheel of Fortune at 7pm and then again at 7:30 on the other channel.   They did have a DVD player and two movies: Ghost & Titanic, go figure!  But, we left our Netflix at home…Glad we brought books and some games!   At night we sat in the hot tub and looked over the mountain up at the sky.  It was amazing (and now Cru wants a hot tub).
One day we ventured out to Waynesville (small town USA) to be tourists.  We stopped at a bunch of the local shops down the main street.  Found quite a few spectacular artists that we now love; Cynthia Walker & Jeffery Stoner.  We picked up a few items and lunch.  Our trip and our stay was exactly what we needed.  It was perfect; and we will definitely be returning to the cabins.  The Huber family was awesome.
