Cabin Getaways In Hendersonville, NC

Bill Russ

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, just two hours west of Charlotte and half an hour south of Asheville, Hendersonville maintains the small-town charm many search for in a mountain vacation — shopkeepers who say hello, pedestrian-friendly sidewalks and back roads ripe for rambling rides through the countryside. For visitors looking to stay in a cozy cabin or vacation rental, together with family or friends yet away from the wider world, Hendersonville offers plenty of places that feel like home.

For an authentic WNC mountain experience, book a remote cabin on a hillside surrounded by old-growth forest. Many offer spectacular views of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, particularly in the winter when the leaves are off the trees. Choose an independently owned property, or book with a specific cabin rental company. Cabin Fever, just south of downtown Hendersonville, maintains seven rustic cabins on 15 acres. Rock on the front porch in the shade of a dense tree canopy, or curl up beside the woodstove. Dog lovers delight in Barkwells, where four-legged family members are the focus. Each of the eight cabins has its own fenced yard, and the property has a pond in the center.

Those looking for an agrarian escape should book a cabin or home in Hendersonville apple country. The majority of Hendersonville’s abundant apple orchards are concentrated northeast of town in an area known as “apple alley.” Unwind on a back porch overlooking rows of apple trees. Prepare meals in a full kitchen, and spend time together as a family. In recent years, vineyards have increased in this area, and the Crest of the Blue Ridge wine region received federal designation as an AVA in 2019. A few wineries now offer vacation rentals on property.

If downtown Hendersonville is your destination, choose to stay in a loft or condo. Leave the car parked and walk to grab coffee and window shop along Main Street. When dinnertime arrives, choose from 25 independently owned restaurants. Many restaurants now offer traditional dine in, outdoor dining or curbside pickup options to suit all visitor needs.
