Nestled in the mountains of Western North Carolina, Milima (mi-lee-muh) Ranch spans 400 acres of private conservation land surrounded by the Smoky Mountains and Pisgah Forest. A short drive from I-40 brings you to our private gate. Moonshine Cabin and Milkyway Cabin are visible from the driveway and offer first class accomodations. These luxury cabins are the only buildings on the entire property, allowing for a pristine wilderness encounter.
Milima Ranch has two luxury cabins, Moonshine and Milkyway. Each cabin is fully furnished and stocked with all the necessities including fine linens, high-end cooking utensils, and much more. Here is a brief description of our cabins. Visit each cabin’s page for specifics.
Most commonly, our patrons are drawn to the mountains of North Carolina because of the raw, natural beauty. Encounter all this beauty within the Milima Ranch property through our 8 mile network of hiking trails. Ascending from 3200 feet to 4200 feet, these trails offer views of mountain streams, rare plants and a diverse wildlife population.
Milima Ranch is a destination of 4 seasons. The winter offers exceptional snow days revealing the backbone of the land which lays hidden in the growing season. The spring, summer and fall months present an ever changing canvas of the mountains and the wildflowers are a sight to be seen. A special treat starting in September is the ripening of the apple trees that are scattered throughout the 400 acres, followed shortly after by the fiery fall leaf season.
Although Milima Ranch feels secluded, we are actually a short drive from I-40. This allows for quick trips to the surrounding attractions, including Asheville, Waynesville, Cataloochee Ski Area, the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Nantahallah Gorge and Asheville, just to name a few. These areas offer activities for everybody including sight-seeing, shopping, skiing, golfing, fishing, white water rafting, canoeing, zip lining and hunting, all within 40 minutes of Milima Ranch.
