Make your escape to eco-friendly Whispering Wind, a gorgeous log cabin home on two secluded acres just 20 miles west of Asheville, NC.

A mountain vacation paradise, this beautifully appointed modern home features a spacious, fully-equipped kitchen ideal for the gourmet in your group, long range views from the two-story windows in the living area, and a gas fireplace that's wonderful for cuddling up on a chilly mountain evening. When the day is winding down, retreat to the jetted Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom and let all your worries float away. Three private bedrooms offer plenty of space for friends and family to get their well-deserved beauty rest.

For those looking to live it up a little on your vacation, entertaining is a breeze at Whispering Wind! The wide wrap-around deck offers lots of room to kick back and relax while taking in the tremendous view, plus everyone will love it when you light up the charcoal grill and cook a delicious meal. If building a roaring bonfire stokes your imagination, the outdoor fire pit is perfect for making the most of an evening. Indoor entertainment options are also readily available: recent renovations include a fun-filled recreational area on the main level, complete with a pool table, an extra-large flat screen TV with satellite service and a DVD player, and a comfortable sectional sofa. Dogs are welcome at Whispering Wind, and there's a large, grassy yard for them to explore. Situated at the end of a quiet, dead end road, this home also features a garage.

Please note that large gatherings such as parties, wedding receptions, etc. are not allowed.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About: Hi! We are Jeffrey and Rebecca, owners of Whispering Wind. Jeffrey grew up in Michigan while Rebecca grew up in New York and we both eventually made our way to Charlotte, NC, which we've called home for the past 12 years. Jeffrey is a CPA and Rebecca owns an event planning firm. We love to travel often and use vrbo.com almost exclusively to find unique accommodations. When we travel, we often bring our 'four-legged children'!

                  Why Asheville:
                  We have always loved the mountains and actually got married in Asheville back in 2005. Ever since then it's been our dream to purchase a home in the area that holds so many special memories for us. Asheville is such a wonderful place with so much to offer and we seem to discover something new each time we visit, whether its a new restaurant or a funky art gallery.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  All you need to do is look out from the front porch to see why we fell in love with Whispering Wind! The views are amazing we find ourselves immediately relaxing as soon as we take in the views and inhale that fresh mountain air. We have a great respect for the environment and believe it's our responsibility to preserve it for future generations. When furnishing the home, we tried to make environmentally responsible choices, from using low VOC paint and compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), to repurposing furniture and buying local artwork. In fact, the rec room accent wall features wood from a 120 year old barn in North Carolina! The house also offers ways for travelers to reduce the environmental impact of their stay, including recycling, cloth napkins and convenient reusable shopping bags.
