Description of the Lake James vacation cabin rental

Stoney River Cabin is a private vacation rental retreat located in a small residential community near Lake James within the Pisgah National Forest. We are at the end of the Linville Gorge, just before the Linville River enters Lake James. This cozy stone cabin we recently restored and updated to meet modern needs. We are just 2 miles by road to the Linville public/boat access on Lake James and a 1/2 mile by river to the lake via your own kayak. The Linville River is just behind the house where you are welcome to swim, fish, canoe and kayak.

Stoney river cabin is a great vacation rental for couples or small families who love the outdoors and are looking for a convenient get-away.

The cabin is fully furnished with hardwood floors, a living room with a wood burning fireplace, two bedrooms, a den with satellite TV, a DVD and CD player, one full bath (shower, no tub), screened side porch area, and a fully equipped kitchen with microwave and coffee maker.

The cabin can sleep up to 6 people with a queen & full sized bed in the bedrooms and a full sized couch that converts to a surprisingly comfortable bed. There is a campfire circle just outside and deck where you can watch the river go by.

Area Information

The cabin is on the Pisgah Loop Scenic Byway, close to Shortoff, Hawksbill and Table Rock mountains, Linville Falls, the Linville Gorge. If you are looking for city life, we are an easy 1 hour drive to Asheville. We are 45 minutes to the ski slopes in the winter. The City of Morganton is a 15 minute drive with grocery stores, video rentals, convenience shopping, off road bike paths along beautiful greenways and a thriving small downtown with a free festival every Friday night in the summers and lovely restaurants year round.

Excellent stay

This cabin is just simply stunning!! Not only is the cabin charming, but so is the surrounding area. The river is beautiful, great for kyaking and swimming. The cabin was well stocked with amenities, and the bathroom had a full size washer and dryer. We are planning on renting again this coming summer. The owners are fantastic to work with, and graciously answered my many questions. The cabin is in a secluded area, yet is within 15 miles of downtown Morganton. Morganton has many local artisian galleries, stores, and great locally owned restaurants, coffee shops, and even 2 breweries. We can not wait to come back!!

Owner's reply:

Hi Nancy - So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. We agree, this area is about the best for outdoor activities in North Carolina, especially so close to amenities and I-40. Can't wait to host you all again. So very happy you enjoyed the cabin. We try to provide everything you need for a magical stay.

Quaint Cabin

This was a quaint cabin located in a quiet setting. Not as private as we had hoped, but had river views and a great firepit area.

Theresa Beckman

Owner's reply:

Thanks for visiting Michelle. We hope you will come again. We do have some lovely neighbors who live in our community year round. Best wishes to you.

Very Charming

This cabin is so relaxing to stay in. The kitchen has everything you could need. The owners made sure you know of all the local sites and things to do in the area. It was so nice to fall asleep to the sound of the river flowing out back of the cabin. The pictures do not do this cute cabin justice, by cute I do not mean small. There is room for everyone here and you will not be on top of one another. The stone walls are awesome and some history of the cabin would be appreciated. The bathroom is modern and spacious with a great washer and dryer to wash your clothes from all the hiking, swimming, and biking you can do practically in the backyard. The owners have done a great job of making their home feel like your home. You never want to leave. If you and your family want to get away from it all this is the place to go. Or if you want to get together with family you haven't seen in a while this is also the place to go. Our family really enjoyed staying here and will in the future stay here again. Thank you Terry and Jo for sharing your little piece of heaven with us.

Theresa Beckman

Owner's reply:

Thanks Dawn. So glad you guys enjoyed your stay. Yes, the cabin is bigger than it looks over 1,300 square feet, the living spaces feel large. We are so lucky to be located in the middle of some of the best hiking in the state. Being both in the mountains and near the lake is really special, something for everyone in the Lake James area. Hope to see you back again soon!!

So glad you enjoyed it Jason. Our neighbors are one of our biggest assets! It is an old fashioned community here! Hope you come again soon.

Nice Cabin

The cabin was comfortable and the location was exactly where we wanted to stay.

Theresa Beckman

Owner's reply:

So glad we could host you Carol. Yes, it is a great location, close to all good things outdoors, swimming, hiking, biking, and still pretty undiscovered by the masses.

    My partner Jo and I purchased this cabin 4 years ago and spent the first 6 months renovating it. We are still continually improving it. This year we installed a tankless hot water heater and a new deck. People love both - for different reasons! The deck overlooks the Linville River, really relaxing...
