About Leslie Osborne
Moving to the Western NC Mountains from Charlotte NC back in 1990 was a new venture for my family. Having lived here for nearly 30 years now and falling in love with the area and its people, it lends me to call Asheville my home. Being in real estate sales, I get to see so many beautiful properties in the greater Asheville area so I am grateful to have an older cabin to offer folks to rent that is reminiscent of the cabins I stayed in during my youth across Western North Carolina.
Leslie Osborne purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Leslie Osborne chose Asheville
The cabin was built by Abner Gwaltney in 1928 and has passed through several generations of families until my parents purchased the home as their summer getaway from the heat of the lowlands of NC. I purchased the cabin in 2004 when my parents decided they could no longer make the trip to Asheville. By that time, I had moved to Asheville and decided to keep the cabin available for family members to use. In 2008 I decided to open the cabin to the public because of its great location to downtown Asheville and it gave a choice to travelers that didn't want to stay in a regular ole hotel room.
What makes this Cabin unique
The gorgeous views of the mountains and the surrounding horse farms. Accessibility is the greatest asset. Privacy and the rural setting that lends to a quiet and peaceful stay. Please read the reviews!!!
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
We enjoyed staying in the cabin! Peaceful & beautiful! We loved hanging out on the back deck each morning & evening!
Could use a few upgrades.
It’s a nice little cabin if you like a primitive feel. The beds are small, the TV is minimal, no alarm clocks, or updated amenities. It could certainly use a few modern interior updates. The location and land was a good place for my dogs to run though.
LOL... For most people, primitive means no electricity or running water! What you state as primitive is what other guests in their reviews refer to as rustic and charming. Both beds are queens and the cabin is certainly updated. So glad that your dogs enjoyed their stay! BTW... This man stayed all but one night of his reservation and decided to leave a day early and wanted a refund for one night which we could not do per the cancellation policy with VRBO. He threatened us with a bad review if we would not give him any money back so this is what he wrote.
Cozy Little Cabin
We visited Asheville in Aug 2019 and stayed at Leslie's cabin for 3 nights.
We truly enjoyed our time at this wonderful place.
Ingles Grocery Store is barely few miles away which helped immensely.
Cabin is at short distances from hiking trails and popular Asheville breweries.
We had a fantastic time during our stay at Abner's Cabin. It's in a beautiful spot and just a short drive or Uber to downtown Asheville. The house has plenty of room for a small group and such great views! We will definitely be staying here again!
Only 10 minutes from downtown Asheville, and feel like you are in the country! Beautiful sunset views!!
Clean rental cabin in great setting (15 min from downtown Ashville)
Great spot for 2-4 people touring Asheville area.
Nearby attractions are the Biltmore Estate and Biltmore Village, the BlueRidge Parkway, National Forests, fantastic local breweries and restaurants, the GrovePark Inn and Spa, the Center for Retired Living, beautiful waterfalls and more!!!
We have horses located just beside the property for your viewing pleasure. Local wildlife roam in the yard almost daily. Please say hello to Gertrude - our lone wild turkey. You are in a prime area for native flowers in the Spring, fire flies in Summer, leaf looking in the Fall and sledding in the Winter (provided we have snow!)
