RENT AN ISLAND for your vacation! This is a one of a kind glamping style tiny house, situated on a beautiful private island in the French Broad River offering a unique opportunity to "get away from it all', but be just 10 minutes from shops & restaurants and 25 minutes from downtown Asheville.
Restored one room (plus modified bath) rustic cabin with large partially covered porch to enjoy the 'middle of nowhere' feeling of being on an island. Our Island Retreat is designed for the adventurous. This rustic retreat provides the ideal quarters for romantic getaways, fishermen, authors, bikers, hikers and the free spirited looking to get close to nature… but not too close!
** Note - Children under 12 are not permitted on the island. Ideal for 1 or 2 adults. We do NOT allow tent camping or non-paying visitors on this property.
Fish the French Broad, cook your catch over on the open fire pit grill, experience an outdoor rain fed shower, and watch the fireflies light up the mountainside. Bring your bike and enjoy the level ride along historic Old Marshall Highway. Catch some rays on your private riverfront beach or just relax in the porch hammock. Spend evenings by the campfire toasting smores and listening to the wildlife serenade. Day trip to kayak, whitewater raft, tube the river, hike or horseback ride. Explore history with a visit to the Biltmore Estate, Grove Arcade, historic downtown Asheville or the Vance Birthplace. Drive the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and have lunch on top of Mount Pisgah.
This is the only cabin on the island with incredible privacy and isolation, but just 15 minutes from Asheville, 10 minutes to Weaverville, and 10 minutes to the historic town of Marshall.
