Great weekend get away to hike and then relax by the river. The cabin was very clean and close by to parks as well as various areas to hike with some great views of the area.
My husband and I had a very nice stay at Stoney River Cabin. As others have suggested, the cabin is located in a small neighborhood. The cabin itself is exactly as pictured on the website. It was a little further from the river than anticipated but you could still hear the water flowing which is quiet soothing. The owners were so kind and accommodating and even allowed us to check in early. They provided us with a lot of information and tips which we really appreciated. We enjoyed the fireplace and it was nice to have a lot of space. The cabin is rustic but with some of the nice amenities of home (like TV and internet and washer and dryer, microwave, etc. but no dishwasher). We found the cabin clean and in good order which is very important to me. We took an awesome hike on Shortoff Mountain. The trailhead is only a few miles from the cabin. We also visited Lake James State Park for a nice hike and enjoyed paddling around the lake in a rented canoe. We did drive to Morganton and enjoyed Catawba Valley Brewing Co. Closer to the cabin is a restaurant called Buckhorn Tavern. The food was reasonable, the waitress was attentive, and we like to support local businesses. We took a couple of other day trips to Navitat for zip lining which was INCREDIBLE. We visited Sugar Mountain and Linville Falls (~1.5 hours away). Asheville is only about an hour away and is also a lot of fun! All in all, staying at Stoney River Cabin was a positive experience. Thank you Teri and JoAnn for sharing your cabin with us!
We stayed at Stoney Creek Cabin to visit see some sites in the Linville Gorge wilderness are and see some fall colors. The cabin is rustic and clean. Great river access,we had our kayaks and enjoyed the water of the river. All the information is in the books provided by the owner. Very nice maps and directions for anything you need in the area. We hiked at table rock,and enjoyed the fire ring at night. Beds are clean and comfortable. We will definitely return and I can't wait . thank you Terri !☀️
We stayed here with our 3 adult children and a dog and were very comfortable. The cabin is very well equipped with lots of spaces for a small group such as ours: sit in kitchen, living room, tv room, and screened porch. We never felt crowded and found the kitchen perfect for preparing and enjoying family meals. This was a great location near the lake, several trailheads, and not too far to drive in to Asheville or other locations in the mountains. There were neighbors but it was quiet and lots of friendly dogs the weekend we were there. We want to go back for sure. It seemed like everything had been thought of from charcoal grills to extra sheets for the sofa to mixing bowls and pots and pans.
Wow! What a fun time we had! My husband and I took our 3 boys (9, 11, and 13 yrs) on an "outdoor" family vacation but had no idea how much of a great time was ahead of us. This Cabin is so charming and comfortable with all of the amenities PLUS. We absolutely loved the river in the back of the house and boys had hours of fun tubing down it. The neighbors were all so nice/welcoming and helpful. My boys loved using the mountain bikes from the shed and roasting s'mores on the fire at night! The cabin is located so close to everything including Lake James State Park with a ton of things to do! Morganton is very close and such a sweet town. Don't forget to check out the Linville Caverns and Falls and if you want more thrills, ziplining at the Beanstalk Journey in Catawba Meadows or tubing/Kayaking down 6 miles on Green River Cove, so much fun! Thank you to Teri the owner who recommended most of our activities and made our summer vacation one to remember! What a hidden little gem, highly recommended and absolutely receives a stamp of approval by this family! We definitely plan on revisiting... Thank you!!!

We are sad to leave the tranquility of Stoney river cabin. Terri and Jo thought of everything to make the cabin welcoming and cozy. The cabin is situated in the most awe inspiring nature areas we have ever had the pleasure to experience. We could spend months in the area and never do the same hike twice. We had some rainy days but used that time to explore the local boutique wineries and vineyards. The town of Morganton offers great local dining and attractions as well. We can't wait to book again and appreciate all the thoughtful touched Terri and Jo provided to make our vacation special. Highly recommend!
