Enjoy NATURE at its BEST!! This beautiful log cabin – The River Phoenix – is tucked serenely in the woods and has much to offer for travelers seeking relaxation and mountain bliss. Nestled at the base of Phoenix Mountain and with the New River just steps away—it is a spectacular wooded haven.
There are approximately 12 acres with walking trails for hiking and enjoying nature.. Some flat areas to walk as well for those of us not ready for an uphill hike. From the back deck, you can hear the waterfall which is just up from the home and falls into a creek which runs the side border of the property. Creek noises will lull you to sleep at night and keep you company while you rock on the front porch. Don’t be surprised to see a family of deer cross in front of the cabin, particularly early morning and late evening. Enjoy watching the squirrels come right up to the front porch in search of the locally grown corn in the feeder, and birds gather around their own feeder for a birdseed treat.
Just steps away from the cabin is a sweet little pond with well-fed koi and a small water wheel. Please enjoy feeding the fish— but no catching them!! The river is just down the road, a short drive or walk where you can fish and enjoy the beauty of the scenic New River.
The covered front porch is a great place to rock and relax, and spend time re-acquainting with your family and friends. Turn those cell phones and gadgets off and enjoy the sounds of nature including the local wildlife and the babbling creek.
The cabin features a great open kitchen and living room with hardwood floors and a corner fireplace (it’s electric but gives a beautiful ambiance and warmth to the room). There is a master bedroom with four poster bed, walk-in closet and full bath. A door from the bedroom leads straight out onto the wrap around deck.
The second smaller bedroom features a second walk-in closet and a rustic metal bed with quilts that will remind you of Grandma’s house and days gone by.
The half bath and laundry are closeted in the hallway and in easy reach. Each room is decorated with local nature scenes captured by an Ashe County photographer with an eye for the beauty of nature all around us.
The River Phoenix is a pet friendly rental. We accept most pets, within reason, and charge a nominal pet fee. You may even see the cabin namesake—the owners’ Red Merle Australian shepherd.. You will know him if you see him—one brown eye and one blue one.
We welcome singles, families and couples—but please bear in mind, that the pond is deep, creek bed can be slippery and children must be accompanied and well supervised at all times.
Offered exclusively by Ashe Rental Agency, The River Phoenix can be reserved for your solo retreat or family getaway…. A perfect spot for the newlyweds or anniversary celebrations as well— Let us know and we’ll have a bottle of something bubbly waiting at your arrival.
Best spoken from a previous guest :
“Wow, the most relaxing couple of days ever.. This little cabin in the woods is a well-kept secret, but one that others need to know about.. So very comfortable and enjoyable.. We particularly liked the front porch and enjoyed feeding those beautiful koi in the pond. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing place in the mountains!” — D. B.
