The SpaceIf you want the true feeling of Western North Carolina's mountain cabin living, complete with breathtaking panoramic views, then Mystic Valley is for you. The cabin sits on 15 acres of private, wooded and pasture property and is located only 30 minutes from downtown Asheville. It is the perfect retreat just far away enough to rejuvenate with nature but still close enough to make a quick trip for city dining and entertainment, if desired. This rustic cabin was built 25 years ago on family land by the current owner and a few of his closest friends, each a jack of their own trade. The White Pine logs were picked, sawed and hand notched. All of the cabinets and exterior doors were handcrafted out of Walnut. Rocks for the foundation and fireplace, which serve the living room and master bedroom, were gathered from the surrounding mountains. In addition, when built, the hardwood floors were pulled from the gymnasium of the high school in which the owner had attended some 18 years prior.
The most distinct feature of the property, separating it from all others, is the stunning view from the 410 square foot covered front porch. You will not forget taking that first deep, relaxing breath or the stunning, almost 180° view of the open valley, authentic farmland and Appalachian Mountains. Peacefulness you will unlikely experience anywhere else. Mystic Valley is a perfect retreat for any season. It’s a great place for the entire family or a quiet, romantic weekend getaway for couples. So if you want a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, or just want to experience something new, look no further and book your vacation today. Feel as though you've taken a step back in time but with all the comforts and amenities you need on vacation at Mystic Valley. It will be an experience that you and your family, friends and pets will remember for a lifetime.

Not only are we pet friendly, we encourage bringing your four legged companion along!...A place to run in the country?! What more could any dog ask for? If you are like us, your vacation just would not be complete without the entire family present. So whatever the occasion, be sure to bring along your best four-legged friends. Doggie Sheets will be readily available, so that dogs can snuggle with you in the bed. Towels can be found in the 'Doggie Clean-up Station' on the front porch, in case your companion(s) have a little too much fun while exploring. Bags and waste cans are provided for the inevitable bathroom breaks. Guest AccessWe encourage our guests to take advantage of the 15 acres in which the cabin sits. If there are other areas of the valley in which you would like to explore, just let us know. We will gladly contact the owner for permission. Interaction with GuestsThe level of interaction ultimately depends on the guests, as does our presence. We live relatively close, so we make it a point to greet each group upon arrival. After which it is up to you. We truly enjoy visiting with our guests but understand that some just want to be alone with their loved ones. The NeighborhoodMystic Valley offers the ideal combination of total seclusion AND convenient access. Located in the historic, scenic, quiet, quaint community of Big Sandy Mush, where the land has been farmed by the same families for generations, it is just a 30 minute jaunt to the lively downtown scene. A very short distance to travel to experience the boundless diversity of Asheville. Getting AroundThere's so much to see and do!! For instance the new Farm Heritage Trail:
"The Farm Heritage Trail is a scenic driving and cycling route through the rural agricultural communities of Alexander, Leicester, Newfound and Sandy Mush. The public is welcome to travel the public roads of this trail and enjoy viewing the conserved family farms that are along the route. We encourage you to support the local farms who are open to the public; they are designated with “Farm Stop” signage and hours listed on the website. The Farm Heritage Trail will have an ongoing calendar of events, hikes, educational opportunities and fun activities throughout the year. Visit, connect with and experience our farms."
Also close by is Randall Glen Farm located just a few miles up the road. The farm boast 100 acres and offers horseback riding, gem mining, as well as other activities. Matt Jones Pottery, Friendswood Brooms, Sandy Hollar and several other organic farms are very close by as well. Enjoy wine tasting and 360 degree mountain views at the family owned and operated vineyard, Addison Farms, only six miles down the road. The communities of Big Sandy Mush and Leicester also hosts a variety of yearly events such as the Leicester Studio, ASAP’s Farm and Cycle to Farm Tours.
And for the outdoorsman…the hiking, biking and fishing possibilities are endless. The valley itself has actually been described as resembling the Swiss Alps! One of the most appreciated and talked about mountains in the area, Doggett Mountain, is practically in your backyard. In addition, you will be in close proximity to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Appalachian Trail. Finally, whether it be to soak your sore muscles, or just to relax, be sure to visit Hot Springs, located just 30 miles north of Mystic Valley. Here you will find Jacuzzi tubs supplied with a continuous flow of world famous natural hot mineral water.
