About the property

Cozy cabin with a covered porch, private master bedroom and extra beds available

Just a few minutes’ walk or drive to downtown Hot Springs and a one minute walk from the Appalachian Trail’s entry into Hot Springs, Chickadee Cabin offers the ultimate convenience while still remaining secluded and peaceful on a quiet street tucked into the woods.

Wake up to the birds singing out back and enjoy a fresh morning cup of coffee on the covered porch, or meander in to town on the Appalachian Trail for a day exploring Hot Springs’ restaurants, antiques, rafting and more. Within a few minutes’ drive of Hot Springs Spa where you can take a dip in a natural-fed hot tub, or stay home for a romantic evening complete with a two-person indoor Whirlpool jetted tub.

This is an ideal cabin for a couple wanting a mountain retreat while remaining close to all that Hot Springs has to offer. There are two single beds available in main room if the kids or your friends will be joining! Kitchenette includes under-counter refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave and a slow cooker/crock pot. In addition to the jetted tub, Chickadee has a full bathroom with a tiled shower, toilet, and sink. All linens provided.

Chickadee Cabin is one unit of a duplex, with Goldfinch Cabin being the other unit. Both rental units have private parking and entrances, and the walls between the two units are soundproofed for privacy.


We've got WiFi! We have the best WiFi that is possible to get at our location, BUT it is satellite internet and is affected by the weather and heavy usage times in the county. Do expect to be able to browse the web, but do not expect to be able to stream movies or music. Sometimes it will, and sometimes it won't!


We happily accept dogs at our cabin for an additional $15/stay. Please bring only respectful, not-too-noisy, house--friendly pups!

Air Conditioning

Yes! We do have air conditioning to keep you cool on hot summer days.


Yes! Our cabin is very warm in winter months.

TWO NIGHT minimum stay for weekend nights (Friday and Saturday). ONE NIGHT minimum stay is considered for Sunday-Thursday nights.

About Natalie Marsh

I grew up in the much rockier Rocky Mountains of Colorado, raising goats, chickens, rabbits, horses, and a rotating selection of other farm critters with my parents and my younger sister.

I moved to North Carolina in 2009 and have spent much of my time gardening, studying wild edible and medicinal plants of the Appalachian Mountains, building and remodeling, and raising and milking a few more rogue goats. I live just outside of Hot Springs on a sunny hillside with my husband Andrew and daughter Chloe.

I love to welcome folk to Hot Springs and the surrounding area, so don't hesitate to ask me for hiking recommendations, the inside scoop on local swimming holes, or where to find homemade Appalachian crafts!

Why Natalie Marsh chose Hot Springs

You can't beat how close to Hot Springs this place is, while still feeling secluded! Having such easy access to the Appalachian Trail is a great benefit.

What makes this cabin unique

The cottage-style gardens and natural wood and stone exterior of the cabin is a style I love! I hope that it makes people feel like they are in another place and time, while still providing all modern conveniences and WiFi Internet

This cabin is one half of a duplex; this rental is for the Chickadee portion of the cabin. Each side has a completely separate entrance and parking. We call the other main section of this cabin Goldfinch, and it can be rented out in addition to Chickadee upon request. There is an interior door between the two sides that remains locked with soundproofing foam up. If both halves are rented, this door can be opened and the full cabin has the capacity to sleep 11 in beds. Perfect for a large group! Please see our Goldfinch listing (#724424) for photos and inquire for availability. Beginning in January of 2017, the interior doors connecting the two units will be removed as we remodel and upgrade our facilities. The full house may still be rented by renting both Chickadee and Goldfinch separately, but the two units cannot be connected inside.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! I am sorry to see that your stay was only 3 stars. We have built our business on the great experiences of our guests, and three stars is not up to our standards! If you have any more details or feedback to provide as to what could have made your stay a five star stay, please let me know so that I can integrate your feedback. As a note to the general VRBO public, I did get to meet Angela, as she had to return for her phone charger. She was very nice and polite! She did let me know that, though the jetted tub appeared fully clean when they arrived, when they filled the tub with water and turned the jets on, a body scrub product did come out of the jets. Understandably unappealing! I apologized, as I do all of the cleaning myself and would NEVER have left something intentionally unclean. I also immediately refunded Angela a portion of her rental cost for the inconvenience. I hope that any future guests could rest easy knowing that I respond quickly and honestly to all unexpected circumstances that may arise! Thanks, Natalie

Owner's Response: Thanks for the positive review, Johanna! I'm glad that you had a great stay. I did receive the following message from Johanna after she posted her review "Thank you we loved your place the attention to detail was excellent I should have given a 5 star. I will highly recommend your place to friends" I did not message, call, or contact Johanna in any way to ask her for this message. Thanks, Johanna for the additional feedback :)

Charming, Clean, Comfortable, and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Chickadee is a charming little cottage, beautifully decorated inside and out. It is bright and clean, and everything works perfectly (heat and air, whirlpool tub, shower, ceiling fans, small appliances, and wifi--we didn't try either the tvs or the video players). The beds are comfortable and cozy, and the supply of towels and washcloths is generous.

The property adjoins the national forest, and the Appalachian Trail (which passes through the middle of Hot Springs) is literally 100 paces up the road from the cottage gate. To reach the Hot Springs Campground (at the opposite end of Hot Springs), where our church group was camping, took only five minutes by car and fifteen to twenty minutes on foot.

The owner was very good about providing all necessary information in a timely fashion (and sending helpful reminders as the date of our stay approached) and responded quickly to our email questions. Every aspect of renting Chickadee and staying there was a pleasure, and we would love to have an excuse to return.

Hot Springs
Car: recommended

Take an evening to enjoy the renowned HOT SPRINGS SPA AND RESORT, just a few minutes' drive from our cottages. Here you can get a professional massage or reserve one of the Resort's natural-fed hot springs tubs. Good for a romantic evening or a family/group activity, these naturally thermal waters are the perfect getaway and the reason the town is called Hot Springs!

We are just 200 ft from the APPALACHIAN TRAIL, a well-established gateway hiking path into the Smoky Mountains. Many other HIKING opportunities of all levels are all within a 15-20 minute drive, with choices expanding as you drive further. All have stunning views, birdwatching, hundreds of native plants, and many mountain streams and sometimes waterfalls and swimming holes!
