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.
