Asheville apartment description

Appalachia at its best. A mountain cabin re-created within the basement (first floor, ground level) of my home for your pleasure. Private entrance(s), covered deck/patio, open deck, great view, very private setting.

The location has an East-West orientation, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great place to sit, relax, and enjoy your favorite beverage.

The cabin is fully self contained. It has its own kitchen, bath with shower (no tub), and a small living/dining area. One bedroom with a king size bed.

Centrally located between I-40 and I-26, on Busbee Mountain, the property borders the Biltmore Estate and blends in with the Blue Ridge Parkway at an elevation of 3,346 feet.

Well behaved pets are more than welcome!

I would like to thank Thomas Hardesty of Illinois for the interior pictures of the cabin. Tom is a repeat guest and enjoys photography.

                      Biltmore Estate, Blue Ridge Parkway


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: I am retired. I enjoy my two cats, Olly and Geo. I retired from the Community College System and enjoy meeting people, thus the rental. I enjoy traveling and finding neat places. I hope I have created one here.

                      Why the Owner Chose Asheville:
                      I had a half -finished basement when I purchased the home, which I separated from the house upstairs. I envisioned a downstairs cabin so others could enjoy the beautiful mountains as I do.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      Living on a rural mountain and bordering the Biltmore Estate Property, there is an abundance of wildlife - turkey, deer, pheasants, bear, raccoons, generally all sorts of wildlife. I have pictures of bear in the yard and in close-by trees. At an elevation of 3,346 feet, the cabin overlooks a huge valley. The valley is often filled with fog, creating a beautiful sunrise at eye-level.
