About Michael Johns
I began vacationing to the area about 10 years ago while in college at Auburn University. Hiking, snow tubing, and escaping the hot humid summers down south were just a few reasons to start. As the years went by I became more knowledgeable about the area and shared the knowledge with family and friends. My family and I have been blessed with many wonderful memories in the mountains of North Carolina. We hope to have many more to come.
Michael Johns purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Michael Johns chose Marion
I decided to buy this property because of the outstanding mountain views, beautiful cabin, and central location to many area attractions. No matter what time of day or season the view is always spectacular. One step inside the great room and I knew this was my dream cabin. All the beautiful interior wood from floor to wall to ceiling is very impressive. Also, the property consists of over 2 acres at the top of a mountain ridge. The property is only a short few minutes to downtown Marion. (Just 10 minutes)
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin is spacious, but cozy. It is decorated with casual elegance and the furniture has been chosen with comfort in mind. The cabin features three floors. There is one bedroom on each floor for maximum privacy. It is not only close to Marion, but to many other attractions like Pisgah National Forest, Lake Lure, Lake James, Mount Mitchell, Blue Ridge Parkway, local wineries and vineyards, waterfalls, tubing, kayaking, swimming, Chimney Rock, Biltmore Estate, Grandfather Mountain, Linville Caverns, Boone, Blowing Rock, and more.

Great time for a family!
We had a wonderful time at Appalachian Dream! As soon as the kids got out of the van, they were awestruck by the view and really enjoyed playing in the spacious backyard. You wouldn’t think of a mountain home having a great backyard for throwing a football but this one does. ;)
We also really enjoyed making s’mores at the fire pit and there was great seating for the family in the dining room and in the living room. The house was clean and true to the listing, my 12-year-old son is already asking when we can come back next year.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for sharing your experience with our future guests. We welcome you back anytime!
We had a wonderful weekend at this lovely property. Thank you for a great getaway.
We want to welcome you back again.
Wonderful House, Incredible Views
A small group of us Dads and our daughters elected to rent this house instead of our usual camping trip this year and we are very happy we did, as it was exactly what we were after. The house is lovely, has everything you need and is very cozy. The location, back yard seating/fire pit area and views are absolutely stunning and we enjoyed that the most. Communication with property manager was great, he was on top of everything; the house was in immaculate shape and extremely well appointed. We hope to return in a coming year!

Beautiful, quiet log cabin home
This is a very private, beautifully furnished log home! Perfectly furnished (I especially like the fireplace), with a great view. Thank God for decent pans that weren't scratched up and good cooking utensils!
The kids loved the downstairs, comfortable bunk beds, games, an air hockey table and of course a big television with a comfortable couch! We loved it and look forward to coming back!
Thanks for sharing your experience with our future guests! We want to welcome you back again!
2nd time even better then original visit
This is my second time staying at Michael's place and the improvements were evident. The new furniture was comfortable and provided a much needed comfort for weary travelers. Great communication. the views are just spectacular from here. Can't wait to return again...
Thanks so much for sharing your experience with our future guests! We were so happy to have you back again and look forward to your next stay!
The kitchen was well stocked, plenty of indoor games, the cabin was very comfortable and the views from the back area and the fire pit were spectacular. There are a number of areas to visit and enjoy that are within a reasonable distance. We highly recommend this cabin and the host Michael was very helpful.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay here! Thanks for sharing your experience with our future guests. We want to welcome you back anytime.
