This cozy cabin offers a quiet, more rustic experience for those exploring Asheville and Chimney Rock/Lake Lure areas. The cabin is about 10-15 minutes from downtown Black Mountain and 30 minutes from downtown Asheville.
The cabin sits on 12 acres of privately-owned land on the south-facing side of the Black Mountain range. Located off scenic Highway 9 on a maintained dirt road at about 3,000 ft elevation. A covered porch looks out to partial mountain views. Visitors will find peace in the quiet breeze away from city sounds and lights.
At 374 sq ft, this tiny home has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is one bedroom with a full bed, sitting chair, and clothes hanging bar. The futon couch in the living room opens for a 2nd bed if needed. The cabin has a full kitchen with a gas range, vintage refrigerator, coffeemaker, and other necessary appliances and cookware. The kitchen will have essential items, such as coffee, tea, sugar/honey spices, and cooking oil for your convenience.
There is a portable a/c unit with heat pump installed in the living room area. We will provide extra space heaters or fans as needed. For tall folks, keep in mind that the cabin has low ceilings of about 6.5 feet. A beam runs across the living room making the lowest point 6 feet high.
You may experience limited or no cell phone service, depending on your provider (Verizon works, AT&T does not). We offer free, high speed Wi-Fi. There is a TV (no cable) and DVD player in the living room plus a wide range of selected DVDs for your use.
The road in is a narrow, one-lane dirt road and is very dark at night, so please keep this in mind when booking. 4WD is not necessary to get to the cabin. There are a couple of steep areas on the driveway that may require shifting into a lower gear for 2WD vehicles, especially if wet. 4WD is recommended in colder months when there is a greater possibility for freezing/icy conditions. (Currently, the cabin is only open from April to November, so freezing conditions are not likely, but if they did occur would be in the earlier or later parts of our season.)
Please do not drive any vehicle beyond the cabin, unless for parking or turning around just past it. The road beyond the turnaround spot is very rough and definitely requires 4WD. This road also leads to the owner's private property and is a dead end.
There is one parking spot in front of the cabin and other flat spots directly across from it or above it near the power pole. A solar motion-light is installed over the driveway near the cabin for visibility at night.
Guests are welcome to walk along Worthwhile Drive and throughout the neighborhood. Please respect private property and leave no trace.
The owners live about 1/4 mile from the cabin and will be home during your stay. You may hear our vehicles pass by the cabin at certain times throughout the day. We will be available at any time should you need assistance.
OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
Please keep in mind that this cabin is located in the woods off of a dirt road, and there is a possibility for inclement and unpredictable mountain weather, as well as encounters with wild animals and venomous snakes. Take care and be aware when driving or walking around the property.
Bring in all food and food-related items (empty coolers, plastic bags) when leaving the cabin or going inside. If the bears see it, they will investigate with claws and teeth and most likely destroy it.
