Kevin is a Star Host
Star Hosts are highly rated, responsive, and committed to providing incredible experiences.
Our pods (arched cabins) are newly constructed tiny homes, well situated for both spectacular views as well as romantic privacy. Each home has an arched cabin style, cozy, yet well-appointed with a bedroom (queen bed), full bathroom, full kitchenette and living area with sofa and Roku TV. Homes are located close enough to enjoy a campfire with neighbors, but separated enough to enjoy that special romantic evening on your own large deck with spectacular views, or late at night enjoying the stars above. Each cabin has its very own fire pit. All cabins are outfitted with an outdoor hottub. Property is over 60 acres of onsite hiking trails, or find your special spot to sit on a bench and enjoy the view. We are just up the road from the Toe River. The famous Appalachian Trail is just minutes away, as are the Gem mines that made Mitchell County famous. Our property is historic and once a famous location for moonshine production, detailed in the book "Red Hill" available on Amazon. Or Google the "Bakersville Riots". Truly a place to enjoy hiking, or just relaxing on the beautiful large decks.

Red Cabin
Five Star Cabins w/ Five Star Views
Me and my friend absolutely loved this place. The area was beautiful and the view from the Red Cabin was amazing. The cabin was awesome and the hot tub was the perfect way to end a full day of hiking and exploring. Overall I couldn’t have picked a better place to stay and spend my time than Candee’s Mountain Retreat. Kevin was an excellent host and was willing to offer any advice or suggestions to make this a good stay. Will definitely be coming back!

My New Mtn Getaway!
Excellent property with a wonderful host! The view and accommodations were exactly what I was looking for on a nice romantic getaway. You will definitely feel like you’re able to reset due to the remoteness, but you still do have access to wifi and cell service if you want. The hot tub was the cherry on top for us. You can’t beat sipping coffee or wine with a view like you can here!

We enjoyed the Brown house. Property was awesome. We liked that there were some hiking trails on property for us to take around and enjoy the area. Near by to Burnsville. Hot tub was great. Space was small but adequate. We had a breaker flip once and we couldnt use the garbage disposal, but Kevin told me where the panel was and solved that. The shower water was odd. The hot water some times wouldnt register with the hot water heater. We would have to turn the sink on hot to get the water heater to heat up the shower. Anyway, I would repeat. Fun place.

Red Cabin
Kevin's cabin was fantastic! We loved the area, the views, and the quiet. The cabin is small but has everything you need, my wife and I had a lovely weekend away with our dog. Looking at the stars from the hot tub at night was amazing! Highly recommend if you're looking for a rejuvenating weekend away.

Red Cabin
Lovely and comfortable stay.
Our mountain retreat, felt like a slice of heaven. The hot tub, under the night sky, became our favorite spot. The place is tiny but well layed out, even with our pups it felt specious. Kevin, our awesome host, made sure we felt at home, hooking us up with everything we needed for a comfy, carefree stay. With his local insights, we discovered the hidden gems of downtown Burnsville, transforming our trip into an intimate, unforgettable experience. We will definitely be back in the summer time to enjoy the nearby activities.
