The Water Wheel is our place to unplug and detox from the hustle and bustle of life. When we are not here enjoying this space we want to share it with you.
Imagine yourself lounging by our fire pit with a local brew or taking in the mountain views from the hot tub then creating an amazing meal. Detox in our cedar sauna after a long hike. Or if you are exploring the area then it is the perfect home base for adventures in the mountains or to Asheville for breweries, dining or shopping.

The space
Our A-Frame cabin is small but with an open feel. We have large windows in the front of the house overlooking the mountains. There is a loft bedroom that is accessed with ladder stairs with a king bed and a twin. Downstairs we have a fully equipped kitchen, living and dining areas and a 1/2 bath. There is also a bedroom with a queen bed and adjoining full bath. The deck has a hot tub and mountain views. Just off the front of the house is our patio with a fire pit and 4 Polywood Adirondack chairs and our cedar barrel sauna.

Where you’ll be

Clyde, North Carolina, United States

The cabin is located on a private gravel road on a wooded lot. We are centrally located for exploring the area -- 45 minutes to downtown Asheville, 24 minutes to Lake Junaluska, 40 minutes to Cataloochee Valley Overlook, 30 minutes to Maggie Valley, 45 minutes to Max Patch and 1 hour to Hot Springs (via a scenic drive through the valley), 30 minutes to excellent hikes like Hemp Hill Bald, Purchase Knob, Ferguson Cabin, Cataloochie Divide, Little Fall Branch, Soco Falls. We are 30 minutes from large grocery stores (Publix, Food Lion and Ingles) and Walmart (in Waynesville). We are 15 minutes from Presnell's Produce & More, our neighborhood grocery, which carries locally raised meat, local produce and amish products. The closest breweries in Waynesville (Boojum and Frog Level) and in Canton (Bear Waters)
There are a few restaurants in Waynesville and Canton but I recommend heading to Asheville for dining.
The immediate neighborhood is mostly cabins and farms. We are 3 minutes from Panther Creek Horseback Rides.
