Mars Hill, North Carolina
If you like cabin life with a touch of history, this North Carolina rental is your bag. Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains at 3000 feet, this rustic homestead is an actual pioneer cabin believed to have been built in the 1830’s or 40’s. The owners (a professional potter and vegetable market grower) know how to live the simple life, and are willing to share a piece of their paradise with visitors. Since they live on site, the rental price also includes daily home cooked breakfast for two, and they also invite guests to tour their extensive property, which includes a mountain stream, gardens, a barn, and mushroom yard.
