I LOVE Cardinal's Roost!

Date of Stay:

My husband and I had a fantastic weekend at Cardinal's Roost. I had stayed at the owner's other home in Black Mountain and just like it, this one did not disappoint. Mike is wonderful and extremely accommodating! This little house has the perfect location. It is close to town yet remote enough for you to truly enjoy the natural beauty of the mountain. We enjoyed the galleries, shopping and breweries that Asheville has to offer yet could wake up to a quiet cup of coffee on the porch, surrounded by the professionally landscaped gardens and peacefulness of the woods. The house is also conveniently located to the Blue Ridge Parkway if the outdoors is what is bringing you to the area. Black Mountain has fantastic restaurants that you don't need to make the 20 minute drive into Asheville if you don't want to. The house is well equipped for cooking if you prefer to stay in and eat by the fire. Everything is top notch. I didn't want to leave Cardinal's Roost. Mike has put a lot of thought and love into decorating his home - it's something straight out of a magazine. It's not your typical mountain cabin rental, which was very well appreciated. There are so many spots to curl up with a book, enjoy a drink from one of the local breweries or wineries, or fill up your sketch book like I did. Thank you, Mike! We can't wait to return!!!

Wonderful Vacation

Date of Stay:

My husband and I stayed at Cardinal's Roost for week. We had a wonderful time. The cabin is extremely well appointed. We only used the kitchen to make a simple breakfast in the morning, but if you choose to cook during your vacation, the kitchen is well equipped with everything you might need. We had a couple of chilly nights and the gas fireplace made for a cozy space. Although not large, we had friends over for an evening and there was plenty of room for us to relax and enjoy each others company in the living room. Watched the leaves turn during out stay and enjoyed an afternoon on the deck with a glass of wine. It doesn't get any better than that on vacation. We found the location to be wonderful, close enough to town to get there or into Asheville to meet friend easily. Also only 30 minutes from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock was a plus. We would definitely stay again.

Perfect Romantic Getaway

Date of Stay:

My husband and I recently returned home after a lovely time at the Cardinal's Roost. Mike has certainly created the perfect, relaxing getaway. The cabin is well-decorated, with the perfect amount of space to have a cozy feeling. We loved using the fireplace every day. Additionally, the location was fantastic. We were able to go hiking, explore Black Mountain, and go into Asheville, with ease. I also really appreciated Mike's responsiveness while we were scheduling as well as the electronic document he provided concerning nearby food/attractions/directions etc. We looked through that document before arriving and it certainly helped us plan and increase our excitement! Thank you again- we were certainly recommend the Cardinal's Roost!

Charming getaway in the woods

Date of Stay:

The Cardinals roost was the perfect home in the woods to relax for a few days away from it all, yet close enough to black mountain to shop and eat at the many establishments. The cabin is meticulously put together in a great eay. The attention to detail and the warming gas fireplace make this feel rustic and modern at the same time. Great work Mike, your home is a Gem for all to enjoy.
