Dog-centric Cabins

Designed with your dogs in mind, these cabins have private fenced yards with gated porches, an XL dog door, and access to acres of fenced meadows and a pond. Both you and your dog will realize this is the perfect place to play hard and wind down. Eight cozy, comfy, and fully equipped cabins with fireplaces and hot tubs offer luxury – and room to breathe.


Diva Cabin

Barkwells’ original, light and airy 2 king bedroom cottage welcomes you into an open living/dining room with a cathedral ceiling and a wall of windows overlooking the deep porch, meadow, pond, and mountains. The comfy furniture and rustic wood accent pieces will make you feel right at home in the mountains.


Snickers Cabin

This cozy cabin with its cathedral ceiling provides a living room, porch and king master bedroom with a view over the meadow and pond. The window seat in the loft is the perfect place to curl up and read or gaze out to the mountains beyond. A king bed and half bath in the loft complete this special space. Your dogs will love the runnable fenced yard accessible through an extra large dog door.


Peppermint Patty Cabin

Located at the end of Barkwells Lane, this 2 bedroom, 2 full bath log cabin feels private, spacious, and homey. The pine floors and walls reaching up to the cathedral ceiling in the living room and loft above take you away from the every day. Rock, swing, or play games no matter the weather on the 40-foot covered porch. The fenced back yard runs the length of the cabin, so your four-legged friends will have plenty of room to stretch their legs. The spacious master has a wheelchair accessible in suite bath with a roll-in shower, grab bars, and a roll-under sink for easier access to those with mobility challenges.  From the parking at your door, it’s straight into the cabin with no steps for ease entering and exiting.


Lacey Cabin

This 2 bedroom, 2 full bath log cabin is just the right size for two or four. Lots of breathing space under the cathedral ceiling, but cozy enough to curl up in front of the fire or rock on the porch and contemplate life in the mountains. The roomy master bedroom has an en suite bath with a Jacuzzi bathtub, so you can enjoy a relaxing whirlpool whatever the weather. With a full, close view of the pond, you can watch the birds swoop, fish jump, or dogs swim. The ramp down to the yard and parking at your door make access to your getaway all the easier. This yard has a wooden privacy fence for pups who want a little more alone time between new friend play dates on the rolling meadows below. 


Libby Cabin

This spacious and elegant log cabin with cathedral ceiling has 2 king bedrooms, 2 full baths, and a loft. The loft, which is accessible by staircase, has a king bed or two twins and half bath. The spacious master suite has a wheelchair accessible en suite bath with a roll-in shower, a comfort height toilet, and a roll-under sink to provide ease and comfort for guests with mobility challenges. The Jacuzzi bathtub is a bubbly bonus! Swing on the porch swing, rock in the wooden gliders, or relax in the hot tub on the roomy porch while gazing at the pond and meadow, which are directly out the gate of your private yard. A ramp to parking at your door and steps provide easy access to your fenced yard. Whether you want a getaway for two or a family reunion, the open living space in Libby’s cabin can easily become your “home away from home.”


Baxter Cabin

Convenient to the entrance of Barkwells with parking at your door, once you walk up the short ramp and step inside, you are apart from the other cabins and you’ll see only earth, water, sky, and bliss. Inside this 2 bedroom, 2 bath log cabin, you’ll find views of the pond and adjacent pastures through the full glass wall and doors.

It’s paradise in any direction. 


Bo’s Hideaway

Remember trips to Grandma’s house? The warm, welcoming, gracious home where you felt so sheltered and cared for? (Assuming Grandma lived in the country, but just minutes from shopping, dining, Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway). You can almost smell the cookies baking in this renovated 2 BR, 2 Bath cabin at the front of the property. With homey charm permeating through the rich pine paneling, gleaming oak floors, and earth tones of the cozy living room and roomy eat-in kitchen, this cabin is a reflection of the verdant woods that surround it. Each bedroom has a luxurious, custom-made king-sized bed, vintage furniture, and an adjacent full bath. Enter through the private driveway and gates into the huge, completely fenced back yard (which is connected by gate to the rest of Barkwells, so you’re not far from socializing and swimming in the pond).

Whatever time of day you sit to enjoy the views from the covered deck – sunrise, moonrise, any time between – the expansive vista will surely not disappoint. 


Fisher Cabin

This bright, 2 BR 2 Bath cabin fills to the cathedral ceiling with morning sun or a rising moon over the mountains. An open great room with windows aplenty, and spacious eat-in kitchen with an island workspace makes this cabin’s insides feel as big as outside! Located on Barkwells Lane with its own gate into the cabin’s parking area, the full fenced yard is nearly half an acre! Tall trees and a partial privacy fence offer a bit more of a hideaway feel but still just 1 gate away from the shared rolling meadow and pond. Two king bedrooms each with its own full bath give you lots of privacy – the master bath has a roll-in shower and comfort height toilet for mobility considerations. The upstairs bedroom has a reading nook and window seat to take in the mountain view (or the goats, depending on your window preference). The loft has a desk and a daybed with a trundle for an alternative cozy reading spot or extra folks and extra fun.
