Overview

About the property

Cozy getaway near Black Mountain and Asheville

Cozy, bright, secluded house with mountain views. Be surrounded by nature, but close to everything. Only 15-20 minutes from Asheville & Black Mountain.

Enjoy summer berries from the garden while relaxing on the patio with a grill. Go for walks or ride bikes on the nearby roads and trails. Easy access to hundreds of miles of trail system at Warren Wilson College. Comfortable beds and full kitchen make spending time with family a breeze, and a home office makes staying a little easier. Come prepared to sit and stay awhile- you won't want to come down the mountain!

The short gravel road to the house is well-maintained and 2WD vehicles are normally fine, but in very dry or snowy/icy conditions we recommend a 4WD or AWD vehicle.

Why Janny and Ken Olivier chose Swannanoa

We bought this property because we wanted to be close to outdoor adventures and family when we were off work. This is a great location to do it all! We have worked hard to make it a simple, clean, inviting space that can be adjustable to anything!

What makes this house unique

The views from the yard are spectacular, whether it be looking at the berry plants in the garden or long range vistas of the mountains.

Quiet Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Janny & Ken's mountain house the weekend after Thanksgiving. Our son will be going to college next fall, and wanted to have the four of us have a little family time. We all had our own space which was nice. Everything was clean and comfortable. A little off the beaten path, but easy enough to get to Asheville in about 15 minutes.

Owner's Response: Stephen, It was great to have you and your family stay with us. We are off the beaten path- but still close to town. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Cozy retreat

  • 5 of 5

This sweet, cozy cabin was the perfect romantic getaway! We had the best weekend enjoying the wood burning stove and the gorgeous view. Popped into Asheville to enjoy the eats and brews, hiked a bit and never wanted to leave!
