The vibe at Hilltop Cabin at Raven Ridge
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
Fantastic place to stay if you need shelter from the elements. The host was super friendly and had a fire going in the wood burning stove before we even got there (it was zero degrees out)! I would recommend studying the location before you drove there as it was a little difficult to find. Just read the directions and follow the signs as instructed! I would absolutely stay here again!
Raven Ridge was a delightful stay. It's on an off-the-beaten path small farm up the hill from a young family's homestead. They are welcoming yet respectful of your stay. The cabin itself is spacious for such a small footprint and a great way to slow down with a cast iron wood burning cook stove, great front porch settings, and a lofted bed.
The hosts gladly point to some lovely walks that loop around the area below some cliffs that overhang the French Broad river.
You are also within an hour of the Appalachians and 20 minutes from Asheville despite feeling much more remote.
If you need a rustic escape minus the setup of full on camping this is a great way to go.
We arrived at Riven Ridge via the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway, stopping at more than a few scenic overlooks and a damn good BBQ joint (Peddlin' Pig) along the way. On a warm, North Carolina, Spring day we rolled into Raven Ridge as camp hosts James and Sofie were away. They told us to make ourselves at home until they arrived. You approach the cabin through a terraced garden. Steps have been dug into the hillside. The tiny house at the end of the path is perfectly charming; a vernacular onto itself. You've got to love the colorful shingles, vintage tiled-wood burning stove and hand carved door handle. It all feels at home in this landscape. As James pointed out to us, the staircase is steep. So take care if you have a little one. Otherwise everything you'll ever need is provided: comfy beds and chairs, hot and cold water, a hot plate, etc. All you have to do is bring yourself, some good food and a pair of hiking shoes. And, oh yeah, the outhouse is something to behold.
This is a wonderful place to stay! The hilltop cabin kept us so warm and cozy during a light snow fall. We had absolutely everything we needed and more. If you are looking for a place to relax and get away this is the perfect place! The location is also very convenient. Its close to Asheville, the Belmont and there is tons of hiking in the area and around the cabin its self!! I would highly recommend Raven Ridge.
