Yummy Vacation Home

In the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina there are many vacation homes, but there is nothing quite like the Yummy Mud Puddle. Nestled on ten acres amidst a tall forest, the Yummy Mud Puddle vacation home overlooks the rolling hills and valleys of Yancey County, roughly forty minutes from historic Asheville, known for its progressive live music, abundant galleries, and vibrant, eclectic nightlife. Also within a short drive is access to countless hiking trails, rafting and kayaking, fishing,  the Blue Ridge Parkway, and famous Penland School of Crafts. This rustic rural region is distinguished by the unusually high number of craftspeople and artists who call this stunning territory home. During your time at the Yummy Mud Puddle vacation rental, you will be in the perfect location to experience the rich and varied culture of this decidedly artistic, yet unmistakably Southern community.

Spacious enough for six, and versatile enough to accommodate couples, families, or singles, the Yummy Mud Puddle vacation house is the perfect fit for a quick getaway to the mountains or a longer retreat. Both the master and floral bedrooms have queen beds and walk-in closets as well as great views and access to the deck.  The master bedroom features a private bath with a whirlpool bathtub and separate shower. The third bedroom is perfect for children or single adults with two twin beds, a walk-in closet, sublime jungle motif, and a private door into the bathroom.  We now have fiber optic internet access with free local and long distance landline phones. Rates are posted for both weekly or nightly rentals. The house is warmed by central heat during the cooler months and cooled by ceiling fans in every room during the Summer.

We are a pet friendly rental for well behaved dogs under 50 pounds who are up to date on all of their shots and flea treatments.

The Yummy Mud Puddle is a family business, and we pride ourselves on providing everything you need while you relax and enjoy your mountain home away from home. All linens and towels are provided. The home is completely set up and ready for your arrival. We’ll leave the lights on for you if you’re arriving after dark.

Claudia and John are friendly folks who love living here and know you will love visiting. Whether you need directions to the Biltmore Estate in Asheville or a recommendation for a local restaurant, they are happy to help.
