                  Car: Necessary

                  This beautiful cabin is located just 10 easy miles from downtown Asheville - so close that you can drop in to the city in minutes. But, what is so amazing is that, while the mountain cabin lies just outside of Asheville, its peace and serenity feels like you're miles from anywhere. So, plan to spend some time at the cabin relaxing in its luxurious accommodations, peace and beauty.

                  But, you'll also be glad you're so close to Asheville because it is one of America’s gems! Asheville enjoys a beautiful setting, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a temperate climate, and a tolerant, diverse people. Asheville has a thriving arts community, numerous outstanding restaurants, local wineries and breweries, year-round festivals, and a multitude of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, rock-climbing, skiing, snowboarding, and sightseeing.

                  America’s Largest Home, the Biltmore Estate is only 13 miles away! It is absolutely amazing to behold, and its popularity is well-deserved.

                  The Blue Ridge Parkway, one of America’s most scenic drives winds through Asheville to Mount Mitchell, the highest mountain in the eastern United States.

                  The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is only 30 minutes from the cabin. It is America's most visited national park, and the United Nations has designated Great Smoky Mountains National Park as an International Biosphere Reserve. The Great Smoky Mountains are among the oldest mountains in the world, formed 200-300 million years ago with an unmatched biodiversity.

                  There is so much to do in and around Asheville, you'll honestly wish you could spend more time here. But one thing that's certain, you'll enjoy every moment you spend at this beautiful and relaxing mountain cabin.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1996

                  About the owner: My name is Kelly and I live in Charlotte, NC. I'm a hard-working, peace-loving individual who enjoys the serenity of the mountains. I am a private owner and maintain the property myself, with personal care and interest. I come from a large family and always appreciate a sense of family among friends. I'm sure that you, like everyone who visits, will absolutely love and cherish the time you spend at my mountain cabin!

                  Why the Owner Chose Leicester:
                  My mountain cabin is a rare find and one that I plan to keep for many years of enjoyment. The cabin is gorgeous, immaculate, serene, and lacks for nothing. It is located just outside of Asheville, NC, one of America's coolest towns. While just 10 miles from downtown, it sits on a mountainside that looks out across multiple ridges of mountains and valleys dotted with farmland and estates. It has the best of all worlds - private in its location, and close to everything that Asheville has to offer!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  My mountain cabin is at the end of a private road, perched high on a mountainside, with unobstructed year-round views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its open floor plan and peaceful setting make it perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the Blue Ridge. The house is immaculately clean and tidy.
