Asheville cabin description

Quiet, peaceful retreat tucked away on 36 wooded acres near the Blue Ridge Parkway. Enjoy biking, hiking or birding while still only 10 minutes from all that downtown Asheville has to offer.

A cozy log cabin with all the amenities provides for that secluded romantic getaway or a family gathering. A recent complete renovation includes granite vanities, heated bathroom floors, leather furniture and much more.

Sip wine on the front porch in rocking chairs or in the private hot tub and look for the wild turkey, deer and other wildlife that abound or curl up in front of the fireplace to read, relax or just watch a movie. We are happy to email link to additional photos.

'Is this not the true romantic feeling; not to desire to escape life, but to prevent life from escaping you?'
Thomas Wolfe, author (Asheville native)

                            We were looking for the feel of a real cabin setting and Busbee Cabin delivered. Have you ever been to a location and thought the location did not look like the pictures advertised....What you see online is what you will enjoy when you arrive. Liz & Bill were very accommodating and made us feel so welcome. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend this location. This cabin offers total privacy. You are surrounded by woods and mountains. Downtown Asheville is less than 10 minutes away. Take the trolly (Liz & Bill Recommended Great Recommendation!) to see Downtown Asheville or spend the day at the Grove. This place offers everything you will need for a relaxing and enjoyable time. Thank you Liz & Bill!

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, romantic getaway.

                            Manager response: What a pleasure it is to have such delightful renters. We are so glad our cabin provides a restful "like home" atmosphere for meeting vacation desires. We much enjoy welcoming people who savor the beauty of the mountains and the total privacy of our cabin and yet are so convenient to Asheville.

                            We loved escaping the heat and crowds of Florida to this peaceful, comfortable cabin. Liz & Co. keep a clean and well-stocked place that is a pleasure to return to after a day touring the area. So relaxing at night on the porch rocking chairs. And cozy inside with the gas fireplace. Thanks and we plan to return.

                            Recently visited here with my 4 sisters and had a great time. Cabin was very comfortable and in a great location from Asheville and Biltmore Estate. We enjoyed the heated floors in the bathrooms and the beds were great for a good nite's sleep. Loved that we could keep up with the outside world on all our electronic devices with the WiFi. If you need a nice quiet getaway we would highly recommend the Busbee Cabin. Liz is wonderful and made us feel at home. Thanks for letting us enjoy your retreat.

                            My husband and father recently stayed at Busbee Cabin and we had a wonderful time. It was so nice to drive up the hill at the end of a long day of sight seeing to know that we would have this amazing cabin to relax in. The owners have truly thought of everything down to travel soaps in the bathrooms (since we forgot ours). The house is very well equipped and has the comforts of home. I would highly recommend Busbee Cabin to anyone looking for a lovely retreat less than 10 minutes from downtown Asheville - this is the place.

                            What a lovely cabin! It's nestled in the beautiful NC mountains and has wonderful charm. The kitchen has everything needed for simple to complex meal preparation; the heated floors in the bathrooms are so great they make me wish I had them at home. Finally, the owners are very delightful. We got to meet both of them during our stay and they both made us feel as though we were their longtime friends. We all want to have a return stay!

                            We spent a cozy weekend with 4 of our friends, warming by the fire and telling stories. The hot tub, fireplace, comfy king size beds, warm bathroom floors, and non-accumulating snow the entire weekend, made our 3 days at Busbee Cabin seem like a fantasy. We felt like we were in a constant snow globe. A wonderful visit to Biltmore house, shopping at Kitchen and Company and then dinner at The Market Place on Wall St. A perfect weekend! The entire cabin and especially the kitchen is equipped with everything you could ever want to prepare wonderful meals and to enjoy the romantic setting. We were very relaxed and rejuvinated as we drove away on Sunday morning.

                            My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Busbee Cabin again this summer. It is so comfortable, we call it our home away from home. The cabin is well stocked making our extended stays very enjoyable. We particularly like the location as it is close to any and everything, yet private with no view of another home. The neighbors are kind and helpful should you need them. The owners and caretakers are top shelf-like family they are so dear!! Just an overall excellent experience- each summer we come it just gets better and better. Now they will have a hard time getting rid of us they have made us feel so welcome and comfortable. It is with sadness we leave this little peace of heaven. We shall look forward to many more good times at this very same location as soon as possible!

                            What a wonderful place to stay when you are visiting the Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville NC. The cabin is surrounded by trees, flowers and the sounds of birds humming right outside your door. The owners of this cabins are beyond exceptional. They will go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and beyond their call of duty when they rescued my granddaughter's ruby ring from the bathroom drain. If you are ever visiting Asheville NC I would suggest that you stay at Busbee Cabin it is so much more relaxing than a hotel room. Take a look at the pictures how could you not want to stay at this mountain retreat.

                            We highly recommend Busbee Cabin.  Liz was a delight to work with.  It is obvious that she takes a lot of pride in maintaining the cabin.  It was clean and well-stocked, the beds were ultra-comfortable, the gas fireplace with remote control was so delightful, and the hot tub was a treat each night during our late summer long weekend that turned out quite chilly.  The cabin is secluded and quiet. You feel like you are miles away from civilization, yet you are only a few minutes away from all the delights that Asheville offers.  We hope to make a trip to Busbee Cabin an annual family tradition.

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          About: We moved to Asheville in 2000 and built our home on Busbee Mountain. We love living in the mountains and enjoying all that Asheville and the surrounding area offers.

                          Why Asheville:
                          We bought this lovely cabin that sits on property adjoining our 35 acres of woodland on Busbee Mountain where we live. After renovating the cabin, we decided to share this special spot with others through vacation rental.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                          Susan's parents, Liz and Bill, who retired to Asheville and also live on Busbee Mountain, provide the special touches to help guests have a memorable stay. We know Asheville and Western NC very well and enjoy helping guests make the most of their time here.
