Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2-3

Remodeled Kitchenette, new appliances and professionally cleaned.

Driving up the long winding driveway through the woods you will feel a sense of tranquility and connection with the past.

Rustic 120 year old one room cabin with private covered porch, updated with modern amenities. Private Country Retreat on Swan Mountain yet only 15 minutes to downtown Asheville. Uber to enjoy the amazing craft breweries and restaurants.

There are hiking trails and the Lodge is nearby, but this cabin is private enough that after dusk you can slip into the hot tub with or without appropriate attire.

The cabin has a bunk with a full size sleep number bed on the bottom and an extra long twin on the top. The sofa is a Lazy Boy with pull out queen Slumber Comfort air mattress system. When we stay at the cabin we sleep on the queen pull-out and use the memory foam pad from the full size bed for extra comfort.

Hiking trails on property, free wifi and free firewood.

We have five rentals available on this property and it is an ideal location to have reunions and get together with every one staying on property. We do not allow parties or events of any kind with people coming off property.

*We are in a cove where noise travels and to be good neighbors we cannot allow loud music or excessive noise.

*We have limited parking and cannot allow parking on yards where septic tanks and fields could get damaged.

The property supervisor lives on site and is responsible to make sure guests adhere to policies and is available to correct any issues.

The cabin was nice and clean, very cozy. We had a wonderful weekend. The hot tub was great and it was very quiet.

Beautiful cabin close to downtown

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin. So clean with modern appliances yet a very rustic environment. The property managers spared no expense on décor and amenities. Plenty of supplies, firewood, paper towels, towels, etc. We met Rob, the property supervisor, who was always wanting to ensure we were warm enough and had what we needed. Quiet, secluded, at the end of the road so no one around! Yet this location is very near downtown, we had no problems getting anywhere quickly. Road to cabins is a bit rough and one lane only, couldn't see driving it in a car that sits low to the ground. Luckily we drive a large SUV and had no trouble at all. We look forward to visiting again in warm weather when we can take advantage of the back porch and firepit!

A dream

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about it. This was my first rental from VRBO, and it truly was as advertised. Cabin had everything we could possibly need, and we loved the hot tub and sitting in the rocking chairs by the fire. The second day, as we came back to the cabin from our day at the Biltmore Estate, we stopped at the entrance to pick up more wood for the fireplace. We got to the cabin, and the wood had already been refilled! Thanks so much for a wonderful visit.

Quaint Escape

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a couple plus a dog to stay with 15 minute access to Downton Asheville or Biltmore. Small but comfortable, with nice SleepNumber bed, Direct TV, and large fireplace (with access to chopped wood!) Heats and cools relatively easy, and you can't beat the hottub! Also backs up to a couple of trails, one of which has a particularly beautiful view around sunset. All in all great place to get away

Great little cabin.

  • 4 of 5

This little cabin had all we needed. Heat worked great, shower had fantastic water pressure and hot tub was an added bonus. My son loved taking a stroll on the hiking trails situated on property. We would definitely stay again.
