About the property

Brand new, light filled storybook log cabin surrounded by trees, with views!

The Cottage at Winghaven is a brand new light filled log cabin located less than 20 minutes to Asheville. The Cottage is privately located on 38 acres of forest but with easy access to shopping and restaurants.

Relax in front of the wood burning stove, soak up the sun on the south facing deck or have a drink and watch the wild turkeys from the covered porch. The Cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway or for families!

The main floor is accessible from the driveway without navigating stairs.

Main floor: The bedroom with a forest view has a queen bed and attached bathroom with step in shower. The living room has a Danish wood burning stove, and sliding glass doors to the south facing porch where you can soak up the sun and enjoy the view in classic Adirondack chairs. The covered front porch is also accessible from the living room and is inviting for a coffee on a rainy summer afternoon. The contemporary kitchen is well equipped to create memorable dinners.

Loft: The sleeping loft is fun and comfortable for kids and adults alike. It is connected to the main floor and lower level with a spiral staircase. There are four twin beds with memory foam mattresses and a view out the south wall of windows.

Lower Level: The lower level of the Cottage features a large bedroom suite with a queen bed, sitting area and sliding glass doors to the outside. There is a private bathroom with soaking tub, separate shower and two sinks. The lower level is connected with a spiral staircase but also has its own entrance from outside.

The Cottage is a convenient home base for the multitude of activities our area has to offer: Visit the Biltmore Estate ( 11miles), Downtown Asheville (12 miles), Historic Hendersonville (14 miles), go tubing or kayaking on the French Broad River, zip lining, drive the Blue Ridge Parkway, hike a different trail every day or see five magnificent waterfalls in just one day. There are wine tastings, beer tours, music and dance performances to attend and fabulous restaurants to try. Biking is a favorite sport here be it on the road or on mountain trails. We are more than happy to help you with planning your vacation so please talk to us and let us know what you are interested in.

Of course the Cottage is also an awesome place to just relax, enjoy the sun shining through the leaves, the peace of the forest and the starlit nights. Please note that the Cottage is accessed by a private gravel road but 4-wheel drive is usually not necessary.

We live about 10 minutes from the cottage. We are usually available to stop by if you need us to, and we are always available by phone. You'll receive an electronic lock code so check in and check out is easy. You'll enjoy complete privacy at the Cottage, but we are available if anything needs our attention.

About Jofre & Saskia Cacanindin

After living or owning properties in Germany, the Philippines, Hawaii, Manhattan, Croton-on-Hudson, and Raleigh, we chose the Asheville area to raise our three children. We love the cultural and natural richness of this place. The mountains, forests, ecological diversity, waterfalls and the local food movement, farms and markets, outstanding restaurants, cultural events and interesting, friendly people make this a great place to live and visit.

We live just about ten minutes away from Winghaven, on a small farm with dairy goats, rare breed chickens, ducks, geese and dogs. . Of course we would also be delighted to have you come in person and visit with the animals during your stay at Winghaven! Naturally, we will always have fresh eggs from our happy hens as well as handmade goat's milk soap for you at the Cottage at Winghaven.

Why Jofre & Saskia Cacanindin chose Fletcher

After three years of successfully welcoming guests to the Chalet at Winghaven (VRBO #659460) we decided to build the Cottage at Winghaven in walking distance, but still with complete privacy. Like the Chalet the Cottage is located at Winghaven, a 38 acre property of beautiful forest close to Asheville and Hendersonville, NC. The Cottage is perfect for families or groups of friends. We are very excited that we were able to provide a way to access the main floor without steps to navigate so everybody can enjoy this mountain cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

The Cottage at Winghaven was designed from the ground up to provide a relaxing, peaceful, private retreat for our guests to reconnect with family, friends or a significant other. It is also a perfect place to celebrate birthdays, graduations or stay for a beautiful mountain wedding. Of course we chose to build a log home because how can you not want to stay in a real log cabin in the woods? The wood burning stove and the large deck and covered porch invite you to slow down and relax inside or out depending on the season.

Children and adults enjoy the sleeping loft. Alternatively the master bedroom is inviting and the lower level suite is very spacious with a sitting area and large bathroom. The three floors are tied together by a spiral staircase that leaves plenty of space to spread out and enjoy this cozy cabin.

Beautiful, new, mountain cabin.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is absolutely beautiful. It's brand new, and it's wonderfully designed. You're close to Asheville, but there is more than enough cute places to check out near by. The hosts have thought of everything. They left homemade soaps, coffee, snacks, and fresh eggs. The deck was a peaceful place to relax.

Great hillside retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It is located about 20 minutes outside of Asheville on a quiet hillside that is secluded. There was a nice view off the balcony of the mountains and the trees. Everything was very clean and I am pretty picky about this. The owners were great to work with and were very conscientious when we had a little hiccup upon arrival. They provided a lot of nice little extra amenities such as fresh eggs from their hens and little treats. We would definitely stay here again and hope to do so in the future! Thanks again for a lovely stay!
