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.

                                                                This place was just perfect for a couple and their pup. We loved hiking the trails on the property and ending the night by the fireplace. The cabin is the last home of the property of 73 acres. You get the feeling of seclusion even though Asheville is 15 mins away. Hopefully we will be returning again soon in the fall. Can't wait!

                                                                This location had everything we needed for a weekend getaway in Asheville. Great proximity to the city and arts district, with all the amenities of home, right in a one room cabin. Everything was thorough and clean and well prepared. Thank you John and family!

                                                                Very enjoyable cabin that provided everything we needed for a truly relaxing stay.

                                                                Martha W.

                                                                Beautiful little cabin nestled in the woods offering much needed peace and quiet. The cabin has a pleasing campfire smokey smell that was very comforting. A small stream out front provides a nice ambient water sound and there are walking trails around. Everything was very clean inside and out. There's free firewood for the fireplace inside and fire pit outside, which was much appreciated. The spa was so relaxing and it was amazing to see the stars away from light pollution. The bed was comfy enough for 2, but I could see it might be a tight fit for a taller person. There is also a queen size pullout couch that could help with that though. There's a big grocery store very close by for anything you might need and Asheville is just minutes away. We will definitely be returning!

                                                                Had an amazing stay and looking forward to the next visit!

                                                                Jeremy B.

                                                                I truly enjoyed my 3 night stay at the cabin! True log home in a private setting with huge wood burning fireplace. It was only about 15 min to downtown Asheville but feels like you’re in the middle of the woods while on the property. Hiking trails were fun and clearly marked. Do yourself a favor and rent this place.
