Testimonials for Prayer Ridge

Still not sure? Here’s what our guests have to say! Read more on our reviews page.

Beautiful, quiet, relaxing getaway

“I wish we could have stayed longer. Prayer Ridge is the most private cabin I have stayed in, and the view was just gorgeous. We had many chipmunk and turkey visits during our stay. You don’t get tired of the changing colors of the mountain ranges over the course of a day. Being able to enjoy the solitude and quiet from a whirlpool at night is another bonus. The house was extremely well maintained and everything very well landscaped. The cabin really has everything you need. We also loved Frank’s hospitality, the opportunity to visit the animals at his farm,

Planning Return Trip!

“We had the best time at Prayer Ridge. The owners were so welcoming and had thought of everything to make guests comfortable- they even baked us fresh bread and provided eggs from their chickens! The view is amazing and lots to do very close by including amazing hiking. We are already planning our return trip!”

Amazing Views!

“We truly enjoyed our stay at the cove.  This cabin has the most amazing views from each room.  The porch cannot be replicated and proximity to Asheville is perfect.  Fresh bread welcomed us and it set the tone for a perfect week.  The interior is almost 100% new.”

Extra Special!

“Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in your lovely home.  Very much enjoyed falling asleep with the view of the stars and lights and waking up to the view of the mountain.  Your home more than met our needs and is very well done.  Your family’s personal touches made it extra special!”
