Overview

About the property

Mountain Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps2), Spectacular Mountain Views.

Known for its inspiring views, privacy and serene atmosphere, Treetop Mountain Vista is the perfect getaway for the romantic at heart to celebrate any special occasion. Our Cozy and inviting home features a King Bed (stunning view can be seen from bed), Beautiful Wood Burning Stove, Reading Nook with a variety of books, Love Seat, and Flat Screen TV with a satellite program. Also a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your favorite meals, Hot Tub and gas grill on the totally private deck, which is partially covered for outdoor dining even in a gentle rain. If you time your trip right you may even witness a full moon coming up over the mountains and sailing across the sky! Breathtakingly beautiful! The bathroom provides a Ceramic Tile Walk In Shower, Old Amish Cabinet and a Copper Bowl Sink. Private dressing room adjoins the bathroom. We now have a fire pit with everything you need to enjoy a relaxing campfire. Just bring the marshmallows and hot dogs!

Our cabin, nestled within tall trees, abundant wildlife and stunning views, provides an authentic mountain experience of getting back to nature and a promise of being dazzled by the environment that surrounds you! **Note about the photo of the star filled sky: This was taken by a professional photographer who was staying here. If you photography buffs are interested in how he did this, here it is in his own words, and keep in mind it was taken in early April... [I noticed the stars from bed--very early in the morning--and found that the driveway gave me the best vantage point. I wasn't looking for a clear vantage point to the skies, since I really wanted the trees to provide some context and foreground interest. The two trees in the driveway were perfect. We don't get skies like that in North Jersey, where we only see a handful of stars. My camera was on a tripod, 15 second exposure with an f2 wide-angle lens. Time was about 1:45 minutes before sunrise.]

Despite the wonderful location, Treetop Mountain Vista is easily accessible with any kind of vehicle and is only a quarter mile from the main road. We are only minutes away from Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Mt. Pisgah, the Biltmore Estate and the Asheville Outlets Mall. Enjoy many varied activities as you explore white water rafting, kayaking, hiking, the Pisgah National Forest, fly fishing, hot air ballooning, mountain biking, climbing, community theater and the "Land of Waterfalls" in nearby Transylvania County. Take in Asheville for our world class restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries, antique, vintage clothing and craft shops, parks, Pack Square, quirky tours and let's not forget the abundance of micro-breweries. Plenty of time for day trips?...check out the nearby mountain towns of Waynesville, Black Mountain, Brevard, Flat Rock and Chimney Rock. Or you may choose to bring your supplies, never leave the property and just enjoy relaxing or exploring the mountain behind the cabin. Many guests do just that!!! (Dogs especially love it because they can run off leash!)

About Nancy

I grew up in Northern Wisconsin, right in the middle of lush forests and an abundance of natural lakes, so I have a true appreciation of nature. In 1972 I moved to Florida to experience a different kind of life, lots of sun, warm weather and gorgeous beaches. But still I had a dream, and that was to live in the mountains and be able to walk out on my deck and enjoy an amazing view. I eventually moved to Western North Carolina and never looked back, because life in these mountains is everything I ever hoped it would be and more. When I moved into my cabin, which has an amazing mountain view without even having to get out of bed, I realized that dream. The first morning took my breath away as I opened my eyes and the first rays of sunlight hit Mt. Pisgah. Later I moved into a different location here in the area and it has been one of my greatest joys in life, to provide this remarkable experience for others. The cabin is located right outside of Asheville. I take a personal interest in seeing to it that everything is perfect for each new guest to arrive. Thank You, Nancy

Nancy purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Nancy chose Smoky Mountains

I have lived in the Asheville area now for 19 years. I find it to be one of the most wonderful and unique places imaginable. I wouldn't live anywhere else for anything. Something for everyone I always say! For nature lovers we have the Pisgah National Forest and the Smoky Mountains with unlimited hiking and bicycling trails, lots of waterfalls and one of the most diverse ecological areas in the world with over 100,000 species of plants and animals. Not only are the natural surroundings diverse but so are the people with their attendant cultural interests. And speaking of culture, Asheville is a haven for artisans with numerous galleries and festivals to show off their talents. If you love music, you've come to the right place. Not only do we have numerous concerts in the area all the time but we also have Friday night drumming during warmer months in Pritchard Park and Shindig on the Green in the summer, both free to the public. You will frequently hear a lone musician or a combo providing music in front of the cafes, Fine Arts Theater or Malaprops Bookstore. And speaking of downtown Asheville, it is impossible to walk down any street, anytime of day, any day of the week, any time of year and not find lots of people abuzz with activity. It is just a lively and invigorating town. And Asheville has some of the very best cafes and coffee houses you will find anywhere. Have I convinced you that I love it here? If so, or even if not, come and find out for yourself why Asheville is listed in numerous magazines and books as one of the top places to live or visit in the entire world!

What makes this cabin unique

Treetop Mountain Vista is a single cabin off to itself to provide longed for privacy. No one will bother you as you enjoy the hot tub for two high up on the deck. Part of the deck is covered for dining outside, which you can still enjoy even in a peaceful rain. The hot tub sits in the open so you can thoroughly enjoy the night sky. The comfy king bed provides a bird's-eye view of Mt. Pisgah as you awaken in the morning or just taking a breather anytime of the day. Everything is provided for your experience of rustic beauty with more than just a touch of luxury. The view from nearly every window is inspiring. You are right at Mt. Pisgah and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The cabin is surrounded by trees, and you'll be watching the view over the treetops(hence the name TREETOP MOUNTAIN VISTA). Behind the cabin is more mountain to explore. But right up highway 151 and the Blue Ridge Parkway are plenty of places to hike or ride your mountain bike. It's an exceptional location! Yet not at all far from Asheville, Waynesville, The Biltmore Estate, The North Carolina Arboretum and too much more to mention here.

Mountain top paradise with breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

Words can not describe how magical our weekend was here. Nancy provided all the creature comforts of home without the stress. The hot tub was fantastic, the view indescribable, and fire in the wood stove was so romantic. The cabin is very well maintained and we are going to start making this an annual tradition. Highly recommended and we would have easily paid twice as much and still feel like it was well worth it.

Private, beautiful, gorgeous views!!

  • 5 of 5

Nancy has a wonderful property with all the amenities you need to have a great mountain vacation, short ride to Asheville and nearby grocery! Loved the hot tub and the incredible scenery. Nice short hikes right outside your door. Pups loved the land and tons of exercise! Check in and check out both super easy. Will be back to try out the fire pit and grill - didn't get a chance this time!

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We were very lucky with beautiful weather while here. Combining the view, the hot tub, and the stars, and it made for the perfect vacation. The place was very clean upon arrival. After the first drive up the driveway, somewhat scary, it was a piece of cake. Made a fire, walked the trail, and had a great time. Hiked to the Crabtree Falls which was very beautiful as well. Strongly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ed for mentioning the Crabtree Falls hike. Since I am not familiar with this hike, and I'm sure readers would like to know more about it, I looked it up. It is located in the Crabtree Falls and Meadows Recreation Area at mile marker 339.5 of the Blue Ridge Parkway about 42 miles N. of Asheville. The photos of the Falls and the area are stunning and I'm making a plan to visit the area this week while wildflowers are still in bloom. Best Wishes to all you outdoor lovers out there! Nancy

We are 15 minutes away from the world famous Blue Ridge Parkway. Asheville and The Biltmore Estate are 20 minutes away. From our deck you have a birds eye view of majestic Mt. Pisgah. A must do activity for nature lovers is the North Carolina Arboretum only 20 minutes away. We are on the edge of the Pisgah National Forest on the side of a mountain surrounded by trees, but with easy access to all you come to our area to see but still away from it all. A very private and serene location to just relax and enjoy life. Not far are plenty of grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants and movie theaters.
