Offering a peaceful rustic getaway in a beautiful mountain valley. Small cozy cabin has 3 bedrooms plus a bed in the media room. 2 queen beds, 1 top bunk and 1 bottom bunk bed, and a bed to spare. Master bedroom has chaise lounge, 4 post bed and mirror. Less than 20 minutes to groceries and theater. 45 miles from Asheville with Biltmore Estate, downtown and Grove Park Inn. Nearby is the popular Deep Gap campground and trail to Mount Mitchell, tallest peak east of the Rockies. (You can also just drive there.) Situated on a paved road, just above a rocky stream. Deck with gazebo is great for outdoor dining. Close to great fishing.

Recent reviews:
"Awesome cozy cabin. You don't get service up there which is actually nice. But has a strong Wi-Fi signal. We spent Thanksgiving there and we all had a great time. The owner Ron is very responsive to messages. There are a lot of nice hiking trails which the kids loved. Downtown Burnsville is very quaint. And your only 45 minutes away from Asheville. I would highly recommend.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Fox Den for a weekend in November. It was very chilly but beautiful. The cabin was just as described by Ron and very welcoming. It was a nice getaway to a semi-secluded area as opposed to a busy city neighborhood. We enjoyed the view of the creek behind the cabin as well as taking a hike on one of the trails nearby! We hope to visit again sometime, hopefully during a warmer month to see how green it is up in the lush forest. Thank you for your hospitality, Ron, we love your cabin!

What Alyssa loved about your listing:
Ron, your cabin is lovely. We truly appreciate being able to enjoy a weekend in it. We really appreciated all your info about the area and detailed instructions for how to feel at home in your cabin and what was needed for our trip.
"Ron, The weather was great! We got to hike around the Mount Mitchell area and saw some awesome views. The Fox Den was awesome, we loved the seclusion and proximity to a beautiful creek. We loved the table and roofed area of the porch and hung out there a lot.
Thanks for the great rental and hospitality!

The Fox Den was great! Exactly what we needed, isolated enough to relax in the woods, but close enough to a small town that met all of our needs. We visited Asheville and Mt. Mitchell during our weekend stay, and snuggled up in the Fox Den during the rest of our rainy stay. Ron was helpful and informative. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Great place for a honeymoon! Easy to find but out of the hustle & bustle. Quiet, beautiful, with sounds of the water rippling behind the den. The Fox Den was clean, and just as the description. We hope to stay again.

We stayed at the fox den for two nights, and the whole thing exceeded our expectations ! The heater was warm, bathrooms and sheets were clean, and although it rained non stop indoors was really comfy to have a great time with all the amenities. Would most definitely recommend people to come here. ~A.S.

Such a great place to stay! Very comfortable beds. Great atmosphere! All around great place! H and B

Area Information
The drive out from Burnsville takes you along the river through some of the most beautiful mountain farm country you have ever seen, to the quaint little crossroad of Pensacola Community. Then up the hill on Cattail Creek into a lovely community of vacationers from all over the country and year round residents. Burnsville and Yancey county have the largest per capita concentration of craft and artisan people in the USA. Local studios and galleries abound. Temperatures are always cooler than the lowlands of Charlotte and Greenville, and even cooler than Asheville just an hour away, home of the Biltmore Estate, Grove Park Inn, and a busy, artsy downtown.
