This 640 square foot cabin features one bedroom with a queen-sized bed and one bathroom, as well as a small loft area with a twin-sized futon that is perfect for a child over 8 years or a small adult. Offering charm and comfort, smiles upon entering are guaranteed!

Affordable and in the midst of everything that's happening in Asheville, 'The Robin's Nest' is a perfect retreat for a romantic get-away, business, or while planning a re-location to the area. It is spotlessly clean and lovingly managed by an attentive owner who wants you to have a perfect vacation experience. Inside the cabin you will find information about local attractions, maps, restaurant suggestions, and menus to help you begin your Asheville adventure.

The cabin is perfect for a couple, or a small family with one child that is old enough to sleep in the loft.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: After moving to Asheville in 2002, I knew that these gorgeous mountains would hold me forever. I discovered an interest and talent in home renovations and after restoring several cabins, I left the profession of physical therapy and now focus full-time on managing our log cabin rental business. My other favorite pastimes are gardening, hiking and paddling my kayak on some of our beautiful lakes in the area.

Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
While visiting a friend in Asheville, I happened upon this unique little neighborhood of vintage log cabins that was built as a resort in the 30's. I fell in love with the quaintness of the cabins and the quiet streets lined with huge, beautiful oak trees. It had a real mountain area 'feel', yet was located right in the midst of Asheville. When the Robin's Nest became available, I jumped at the opportunity to purchase and totally renovate it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The Robin's Nest is an adorable vintage log cabin that has ALL of the modern amenities. It is located close to downtown, the Biltmore Estate the Blue Ridge Parkway, yet has a distinctive 'mountain home' feeling that you can escape to after a day of site-seeing. You can enjoy a glass of wine while sitting in the porch swing on the covered front porch in the midst of a historic, quiet little neighborhood. Smiles are guaranteed!
