the acorn cabin

Welcome to Yonderways

Escape to a 5-star mountain barn!

Tucked in a “holler” amid hardwoods, rushing creeks, rhododendron, and a small stocked pond, is a newly converted cabin that began as a barn in the 1940’s. “The Acorn” is part of our family’s active homestead.

The Acorn has been impeccably cleaned and outfitted with many modern amenities to make your stay quaint and comfortable. 

Come stay Yonderways where the pace is relaxed, and where the frogs and fireflies perform nightly from your private deck by a mountain stream.


Centrally loacted between Hendersonville & Brevard, NC - and only 15 minutes to Flat Rock, Pisgah Forest, and many other popular mountain attractions. 
Holmes State Forest, Jeter Mountain Farms, Dupont Recreational Forest, Camp Blue Star, Carl Sandburg Home, Flat Rock Playhouse, Kanuga Bike Park, and MORE!

"We had a wonderful stay at the Acorn cabin at Yonderways! As soon as we arrived we were super excited about the cabin which was pretty much the most adorable and well-appointed thing ever. It was cozy and immaculate. Donna and Keith were very generous with their time talking with us, especially about their animals who we asked a million questions about, and were so friendly. We hope to come back again!"

“...our visit was so great!! The cottage is immaculate, beautiful, rustic, and honestly the best word: dreamy. Our kids ran around with the animals and played in the pond all evening and the next morning! My husband kept saying “babe, good find!” Truly the best air b&b experience we’ve had!!! If your kids love running around in the woods, if you like visiting a mini farm, if you like a charming cottage in the woods, then this is exactly the right place to stay!!”
