Driving Destinations:

Great Smoky Mountain National Park Cade’s Cove and the Roaring Fork Nature Trail are well worth the drive but do tend to be crowded so plan to go early in the day. Or skip the rampant commercialism of Cherokee, Gatlinburg, and Pigeon Forge and visit the Cataloochee area in the SE corner (reached via exit 20 from I-40). A walking trail of historic buildings is found here along with the recently reintroduced Elk.

Blue Ridge Parkway The section from Asheville west to 23/74 (near Waynesville) is the prettiest of all the Parkway in my opinion. The views are stupendous and it makes a perfect driving excursion from Hot Springs Log Cabins. Here is a local guide to the Blue Ridge Parkway: Click Here


Maggie Valley Ski Cataloochee 800-768-3588

Ski Wolf Laurel 800-817-4111


The two courses below are in the area of NC 209 and I-40. Please contact them directly for information and directions. Asheville also has many golf courses.

Waynesville Country Club 828-452-4617 27 holes. Very nice golf course and setting with 3 different 9 hole courses to mix and match. Mike’s comments: Great course!

Lake Junaluska Golf Course 828-456-5777 – 18 holes. This short eighteen hole course can be quite demanding because of all the trees that can affect your shots and the water hazards that come into play on key holes. Three of the fairways are doglegs, but all of them are wide open. The signature hole is #3, requiring an downhill tee shot from off an elevated tee box, then an approach shot over a stream to an elevated green. Horris Smith designed the additional nine holes in 1994. Mike’s comments: The honey-do list hasn’t allowed me time yet to try out this course!

Hiking Areas:

Appalachian Trail & Max Patch Bald – Public access to the AT is at the end of Gorenflo Gap Road, just 2 miles from Hot Springs Log Cabins. (go south 1/2 mile on 209, then right on Gorenflo Gap Road. Gorenflo Gap Road is 1 1/2 miles long and terminates at the AT trail access point.) Bluff Mountain Outfitters operates a shuttle service for hikers. You can also get onto the AT from Max Patch Bald (see below).

Rocky Bluff Recreation Area & Hiking Trails – located halfway between the town of Hot Springs and Hot Springs Log Cabins, Rocky Bluff boasts a beautiful walking trail along Spring Creek (watch for signs of beaver activity!) as well as the Vann Cliff trail. You are always welcome to park your car at the gate and walk down to the trail if the parking lot is not open.

Harmon Den WMA – Exit #7 from I-40 leads you through Harmon Den. This is a gorgeous area full of horse and hiking trails to enjoy the natural beauty of the Appalachian mountains. See the “Adventure Driver” directions and the Harmon Den Trail Map for a preview of the area.

Dupont State Forest – South of Asheville is this beautiful forest with lots of trails for hiking and biking, plus many gorgeous waterfalls that are easily accessible on a loop trail.

Trails Closest to Hot Springs Log Cabins:

Spring Creek Nature Trail – This trail gets four paws from Hot Springs Log Cabins pet guests! Accessed from Rocky Bluff Recreation Area, 3 miles north on 209, on your right as you go into Hot Springs. You are always welcome to park your car at the gate and walk down to the trail if the parking lot is not open. Easy 1.6-miles loop along Spring Creek. Let the dogs swim, throw out a fishing line, or just enjoy the sound of rushing water. Lots of beavers in the area too!

Van Cliff Loop – Also from the Rocky Bluff Recreation Area. 2.6 miles. A steep, difficult hike along streams and ridge tops where the forest has reclaimed old farmland. The Trail leaves the south end of the Rocky Bluff Recreation Area, crosses NC 209, and ascends Taylor Hollow Creek.

Max Patch Bald Absolutely, positively, the best hike if you only have time for one! Elevation: 4,692 feet. Drive right out of the driveway onto NC-209, right on Meadow Fork Rd, right on Little Creek Rd, then a last right onto Max Patch Rd for a total distance of 10 miles to the trail head. Be sure to stop at Panther Branch Rd along the way to see a lovely waterfall. Panther Branch dead-ends so head back to Meadow Fork Rd once you have seen the waterfall.

Just one half mile from the parking lot to the top and you have panoramic 360 degree views into Tennessee, The Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and even all the way to The Blue Ridge Parkway! Max Patch offers a gentle climb across the southernmost bald on the Appalachian Trail to its grassy summit at 4,629 feet. During the warmer seasons, the trail abounds with wildflowers.

Privately owned until 1982, the land covered by the trail had been used for grazing sheep and cattle. An offer to sell to a ski development was fortunately countered by the U.S. Forest Service, which bought the 392 acres for the Appalachian Trail.

Take a jacket as it is often very windy and exercise caution during the winter months as the road to Max Patch may be icy and dangerous even when there is no snow at Hot Springs Log Cabins.

AT Trail from Max Patch: Max Patch can also be the starting point for an AT trail hike to the north (towards Hot Springs) or south (towards The Great Smoky Mountains National Park).

The northern segment travels 20 miles to the town of Hot Springs. The first 7 miles along this segment are easy, gaining less than 1,000 feet in elevation, but the path soon climbs steadily toward the wooded summit of Walnut Mountain (elevation 4,280 feet). After a short stretch on an old roadbed, the trail reaches Catpen Gap and ascends Bluff Mountain (elevation 4,686 feet). From here the trail drops steadily, losing more than 3,000 feet along its 10-mile descent into Hot Springs.

AT Trail access at Gorenflo Gap: The trailhead at Gorenflo Gap is reached via traveling south on 209 for one half mile, then following Gorenflo Gap road for 1.5 miles to the trailhead. From here you can hike into Hot Springs or Upper Shut-In (see below).

Trails from the Silvermine Trailhead in Hot Springs:

Lovers Leap Trail 1.6 mile loop. From the Silvermine Trailhead walk down the road and get on the Appalachian Trail(white blazes) along the French Broad River. After about 0.5 mile the trail climbs steeply to Lover’s Leap ridge where rock outcrops provide great views. Return on the Lover’s Leap Trail(Blue Blazes) and decend to the trailhead.

Pump Gap Loop 4.4 miles. Follow The Lovers Leap Trail from the Silvermine trailhead. At the first major switchback, the Pump Gap Trail goes straight. At the next right fork the trail climbs to the AT at Pump Gap, crosses then returns by a combination of old forest roads and foot trails. The Trail is Moderate in difficulty, offering many changes in elevation and scenery. Can be looped with the Appalachian Trail.

Appalachian Trail from Hot Springs to Allen Gap (14.7 miles, white rectangle blazes). Heading north, the AT crosses the bridge over the French Broad River the jumps the guardrail to the right. The AT follows the river upstream ascends Lover’s Leap Ridge then after 5 miles comes to the grassy meadows and pond of Mill Ridge. The trail then descends to Tanyard Gap where it crosses US 25/70 on an overpass, climbs to the junction of the Roundtop Ridge Trail, passes the Rich Mountain Fire Tower Trail then comes to the junction of FS#467a, FS#422 & FS#3514. Shortly after this junction the trail comes to Hurricane Gap (FS#467). The trail then continues north passing Spring Mountain Shelter and finally coming to NC208 (Allen Gap). A nice loop can be made with the Pump Gap Trail or the Roundtop Ridge Trail. Another loop option begins at Tanyard Gap and returns to Tanyard via the Salt Box Road (FS#3514).

Roundtop Ridge Trail 3.2 miles one way. From the Junction with the Appalachian Trail on Rich Mountain the Roundtop Ridge Trail meanders down the ridge, past old farm fields and through an oak-hickory forest. The Trail ends on Reservoir Road near the Hot Springs Water Tank. Resevoir Road joins the River Road 1/4 mile downstream of US 25/70. This trail can be hiked as a loop with the AT (8.8 miles AT-3.2 Miles Roundtop Ridge-1.5 miles road)

Trails Accessed from Shut-In Road, just outside Hot Springs:

Follow 209 North into Hot Springs, then turn left onto US 25/70 West and follow it for 3 miles, then turn left on Upper Shut-In Road (SR#1183).

Betty Place Trail 1.2 Miles. An Easy loop on a magnificent north-facing slope of Bluff Mountain. The Trailhead is nearly at the end of Upper Shut-In Road on the left. The trail passes remnants of several home sites.

East Fork of Shut-In 2.0 Miles one way. A moderate hike along Shut-In creek from Upper Shut-In road to the Appalachian Trail at Gorenflo Gap. Arrange a shuttle ride with Bluff Mountain Outfitters, us, or another couple as Hot Springs Log Cabins are just 2 miles from the AT trailhead at Gorenflo Gap! So this would be a nice 4 mile hike from Upper Shut-In to the hot tub on your porch!

Trails outside the town of Hot Springs accessed via River Road:

Follow 209 North into Hot Springs and stay on the “main street” through town. This turns into 25/70 East. Follow 25/70 across the French Broad River Bridge. Turn left on River Road (SR #1304). Follow River Road to Murray Branch or Paint Rock.

Murray Branch Picnic Area The Murray Branch Recreation Area is located 6 miles down the French Broad River from Hot Springs. The area offers recreational opportunities for picnicking, fishing, and canoe access to the river. Facilities at Murray Branch, under the shade of pines, include picnic tables, grills, restrooms, water, and two picnic shelters for large groups.

River Ridge Loop Trail 1.3 mile loop. A moderate loop that climbs through a pine forest for a bird’s-eye view of the French Broad River and the surrounding valley. The trail begins across from the Murray Branch Picnic Area.

Jack Branch Trail 2.4 miles one way, blue blazes. A steep, difficult trail that climbs to 2900′ for good views of Hot Springs and the French Broad River. The trail begins on The River Ridge Loop crosses The Polecat Hollow Road (FS#468) and ends at The Shad Road (FS#422).

Paint Rock Trail 1.3 Miles, difficult, distance from Hot Springs-7 miles. Trail begins at Paint Rock 7 miles from Hot Springs via river road. Take FS #54 towards Lone Pine Gap 1/10 mile. Look for trail on left near Forest Service road sign. Trail ascends steeply to the intersection of The Chimney Rocks Trail. There is a beautiful view of Weaver’s Bend and the north side of Bluff Mountain at this trail junction.

Trails Accessed from the junction of US 25/70 & NC 208:

Follow 209 North into Hot Springs and stay on the “main street” through town. This turns into 25/70 East. Follow 25/70 across the French Broad River Bridge to its junction with NC 208.

Laurel River Trail 3.6 miles one-way. Begins near the junction of NC 208 and 25/70 on a dirt road that turns into the trail. Single track on an old railroad grade to the ghost town of Runion where the Laurel empties into the French Broad River. Easy grade. This riverside trail gets four paws from Hot Springs Log Cabins pet guests!

Shelton Laurel Backcountry:

Follow 209 North into Hot Springs and stay on the “main street” through town. This turns into 25/70 East. Follow 25/70, then turn left (north) on NC 208 at the Steady Eddy Coffee Shop until it intersects with NC 212, and take a right. Continue for 6.8 miles to NC 1310, which is known as Hickey Fork Road. Turn left and drive until you see the parking area on the right. The trailhead begins about 200 feet up the road, on the left.

Hickey Fork Waterfall Only 1.1 miles in length, the trail to Hickey Fork Waterfall is strenuous. The falls are rich with growing mosses. The small grottos that can be spotted behind its mist provide a habitat for the spray-cliff natural community. Hike in about 1 mile. At this point, a smaller yet beautiful cascade occurs on the right. To reach the main waterfall, continue another .1 mile. Some bushwhacking is necessary to reach the base of the waterfall. Hemlock, white pine (Pinus strobus), yellow-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera), rhododendron (Rhododendron catawbiense and maximum), mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia), dog-hobble (Viburnum alnifolium), and ferns are all common.

Seasons and Weather:

Use zip code 28743 in your favorite online weather web page. We like Wunderground. Generally speaking, we are blessed with four distinct but relatively mild seasons. I will highlight the seasons below, but just remember that the weather here is highly variable. Altitude also has an enormous effect on temperatures.

  • Spring: The time to enjoy the Eastern Redbuds, Dogwoods, daffodils and tulips that burst forth to greet the new season.
  • Summer: Too many shades of green to count! Escape the heat and come to the cool mountains where outdoor activities abound. Rhododendrons and Mountain Laurel are at their best in June and July in the higher elevations.
  • Fall: Fall foliage starts in September, peaks in mid-October, and lingers through November.
  • Winter: A time to curl up in your cozy cabin by the fireplace or enjoy the expansive winter views from your hot tub. You may be treated to a snowfall, or Mother Nature may choose to give you a clear sunny day perfect for a winter hike or drive.

Winter Weather:

A vehicle appropriate for winter mountain travel (4WD or AWD) is nice to have if available to you.  However many people visit us year after year for a winter getaway in front wheel drive cars. Generally, the roads are clear and travel is easy most all winter, although there may be days of heavy snowfall. It is always nice to arrive before dark.

NC Highway 209 from Hot Springs is kept very clear and our main drive is paved so that we can plow and salt as needed.

If snow is likely, you will probably want to arrive at the cabins via Hot Springs (25/70 from Asheville or Tennessee) as this route does not involve any high altitude mountain passes. Taking 63 from Asheville or 209 from I-40 is NOT recommended if it is actively snowing. If the forecast calls for snow, we’ll be in touch to advise you to arrive via Hot Springs. We work hard on these days to have your cabin ready so you can even arrive earlier in the afternoon if you would like.

Emergency Vet:

REACH 24 hour Animal Hospital and Veterinary Service: (828) 665-4399 Should you experience an emergency with your pet while you are in WNC, this is an excellent 24 hour Animal Hospital in Asheville.

My wife and I stayed here for our homey moon and it was great. Wonderful, secluded cabin in the mountains. The location is very remote, which for some is great, but for some could be an issue. Great romantic getaway

My husband and I stayed in the pine cabin May 27-31,2024. It was a much needed vacation after a long school year . The Holly cabin is close but far enough to have privacy . The cabin has everything you need except food . Make sure you stop when you get off the exit for food otherwise you will have to drive half hour past the cabin for food like we did . If you do venture out stop in pigeon forge and visit the wax museum , play a round of mini golf , and end your day with a dinner show. Hatfields & Mccoy show had great food and the show was entertaining. If you like motorcycles then go to Maggie valley and visit the motorcycle museum and make sure to stop at Jesse’s pancake house for the best pancakes. If you don’t want to drive far then go visit the little town in hot springs and visit Smokey mountain diner for good country food . We already have our next visit booked for December and will be staying at Oak cabin . My Daughter and her Boyfriend stayed at the Holly Cabin which like I me

We spent four days of absolute heaven with our fur babies in the Paw Print cabin. The cabin was spotless and well-stocked with cooking and cleaning supplies, as well as dishes, silverware and a nice selection of spices in the cabinets. We loved the fenced yard with the Paw Print cabin, and our pups did, too! The hot tub was so relaxing. Green everywhere you look. So peaceful and enjoyable. We will be back!

We had a wonderful stay at Hound Heaven cabin and are already looking forward to a return trip. The cabin was clean and had everything we needed, including an awesome mountain view! We really enjoyed taking a number of hikes including up to Max Patch, and along Spring Creek and Laurel River.
