Description

Where you'll go to relax and unwind. Located in a private, gated community, Pine Creek Cabin is tucked away in the midst of a 3,000 acre nature preserve. Sit out by the outdoor fire pit, enjoy a competitive game of corn hole, or take a soak in the hot tub- you'll fall in love with the peaceful surroundings of the pines and creeks on both sides of the cabin.

Pine Creek Cabin is located in Old Fort. You'll have exclusive access to the waterfall park and Lake George lake access in Gateway Mountain, just a 10 minute drive from the cabin. You're also 20 minutes to Catawba Falls. Make sure you stop by Mr. Bob's Donuts in Old Fort for delicious hand-cut, fresh donuts.

Approximately a 30-40 minute drive to the charming towns of Black Mountain and Marion. You'll love exploring the local shops, restaurants, and breweries in downtown Marion. Marion's Mica Town Brewing Company, Refinery 13 Taproom, and Spillway Bridge & Co are local spots to enjoy an evening out. Enjoy live music at Black Mountain's Pisgah Brewing, and then hop over to Lookout Brewing and Black Mountain Brewing to enjoy even more local craft beers. For incredible food, check out Foothills Butcher Bar, Black Mountain Bistro or Que Sera. You are also 45 minutes to Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore Estate, Chimney Rock and Lake Lure.

FAQ

WHERE IS THIS HOUSE LOCATED?

Pine Creek Cabin is located in Old Fort in Gateway Mountain. This home is approximately 30 minutes to Black Mountain and Marion, and approximately 45 minutes to Asheville. Click on the location tab above to locate this house on a map.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY?

If you need to cancel your reservation and the property you had reserved re-rents for the time which you had it reserved, you will be refunded all money you had paid minus an $89 cancellation fee. If you cancel and the property does not re-rent for your reserved dates, you will lose all money you have paid to that point. For this reason, we recommend that you purchase trip insurance. Please call 888-228-8008 before making a reservation if you have questions or concerns.

WHAT IS YOUR PET POLICY AND FEE?

Pine Creek Cabin is specified as "pet friendly" and dogs are allowed. Unfortunately, due to common allergy problems we cannot allow cats. For the privilege of bringing your dog, there is a minimum charge of $100 nonrefundable fee per pet. A maximum of two dogs are allowed unless you have received special permission from the property manager or homeowner. Any damage that may be caused by your pet during your stay will be paid for out of your security deposit or charged to the credit card we have on file. There is a county-wide leash law in place. When taking your dog outside of a gated area, please ensure that they are on a leash.

WHAT ARE CHECK-IN/CHECK OUT TIMES?

Check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am. It is important that we adhere to these times, because there is a chance that someone else will be checking out/in before or after you and we need sufficient time to ready the house for the next renter. If you wish to check-in early, there is a $50 early check-in fee that can be added on to your reservation. Early check-in is only available if someone is not checking out on the morning of your arrival.

WHERE DO WE CHECK-IN/PICK UP KEYS?

Pine Creek Cabin is located in a gated community. You must go to our Old Fort Office at 78 D Catawba Ave. to pick up your gate card. Driving directions to our Old Fort Office, along with access instructions will be sent out via email. Once you have picked up your gate card, you can proceed to the house. Please do not rely on GPS. We will provide you with driving directions to Pine Creek Cabin from our Old Fort Office.

WHAT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY DURING OUR STAY?

If you are having a medical emergency, dial 911 from the phone in your rental home or cell phone.

We hope that your stay in the area will be relaxing and without incident, but should you need to get in touch with Greybeard, we have someone on call 24 hours a day. Just call our office at 828-669-1072 and dial extension 203, which will forward to the cell phone of the person on call. Please do not hesitate to call us if something needs immediate attention, but if your question or concern can wait, we ask that you call the office during normal office hours.

WHEN IS THE SECURITY DEPOSIT REFUNDED?

Security deposits are returned within 30 days of guest departure.

WHEN ARE HOMES WITH GAS LOGS IN OPERATION?

Gas logs are not in operation May through September due to the warmer summer months. 

Absolutely NO fires are permitted outside unless the property is fitted with a fire ring/fire pit. You cannot bring your own portable fire pit. 

IS WIFI SERVICE INCLUDED WITH MY RENTAL RESERVATION? WILL I HAVE CELL PHONE SERVICE AT MY RENTAL?

Wifi is available at Pine Creek Cabin Please note that Greybeard Rentals does not guarantee internet connectivity or speed. Each individual homeowner contracts directly with an internet service provider, and due to a variety of reasons, Greybeard does not guarantee service. Our Black Mountain and Asheville offices have wifi service available if needed.

Cell phone service is not guaranteed. You may check with your service provider to see if service is available.

Peace. Quiet except for the sound of bubbling creeks. Being mostly cut off from the rest of the world. A clean, exquisitely well maintained property that was exactly as described, and then some. A deck with many comfortable chairs from which to relax and listen to the wind and the water. A fantastic fireplace that when properly filled with a fire, radiated heat and contentment. An extremely capable entertainment system that worked exceedingly well despite limited internet speed. Comfortable beds, a comfortable shower, and a kitchen with every pan, pot, and utensil you could possible need. Sharp knives that made preparing food easy work.

Great get away!

We needed a peaceful getaway and this place is ideal! The cabin itself is beautiful with all of the amenities you need, and it's located next to a little creek that is so serene. It's in a gated community, but far enough away from other properties that you feel perfectly secluded. There's also a great little hike to a waterfall located within the community itself. Great place to get away and recharge, we will definitely be coming back!

Quiet, tranquil setting. The deck was my favorite "room" in the house!

Very private beautiful setting. Home was so cozy and very clean and well equipped. The creek running through was an added bonus.

A great last minute plan

Just the nice and quiet get away that we wanted. Couldn't have imagined any better. The cleanest place we've ever stayed in also. Beautiful mountains. It was the best plan to make since hurricane Dorian ruin our cruise trip. We are planning another stay here in the near future.

Beautiful house and location

The house and location are beautiful. A secluded getaway to unwind, relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the mountains, with the soothing sound of the creek in the background. Everything was immaculate and as described. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare a few good family dinners. Make sure you thoroughly plan your grocery needs, it's a good 25 minute twisty, windy drive to the store.
