About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

This is what you come to the mountains for! The Glass Mountain Treehouse is poised mountainside overlooking tranquil ponds with water features in a picturesque setting. This cabin was lovingly hand built with wood from the land by a local craftsman. You'll understand why we call it a treehouse with all the natural woodworking inside and out. It is nestled on 4 hikeable acres. This is an upscale rustic mountain retreat with many exciting things to do on-site, i.e. rock staircases, numerous ponds, bold rushing creeks with waterfalls, open loft area, open decking, etc. Parents with young children strongly cautioned. Maybe the reading nook nestled across the suspended walkway will be your favorite spot. Mine is the natural log and glass shower with pebble floor surrounded by windows that open for an outdoor shower experience. For all its woodsy appeal, HDTV's upstairs and down and hi-speed wireless internet access will satisfy the techies.

You'll really appreciate the scenic drive that is just under thirty minutes to downtown Asheville and even less to Black Mountain. You can feel your cares slipping away as you meander through the peaceful mountainside. Wind through horse farms, fishing ponds, fields, homesteads and massive rhododendron groves. Bike and auto enthusiast beware you'll want to spend all your time driving around on some of the best roads for cruising and the Blue Ridge Parkway is just minutes away. You shouldn't leave without checking out Chimney Rock Park only 20 miles away and Lake Lure is just a little farther. There are so many activities to do within one hour whether your passions take you inside or out. This is truly a special place.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We fell in love with this place the moment we saw it. It was rough finished with all the character and potential we could imagine. The bridge to the reading nook sold us. My husband is a master craftsman and finished the treehouse so you can't tell what is original and what we added. I love all the unique aspects of the cabin, it is far from ordinary. Whether hiking the property or lounging in one of the many special places we relish simply relaxing.
