It is conveniently located inside Asheville, 7-10 minutes from downtown and the Biltmore Estate and 1 mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

This cabin has 2 bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom. One bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has one twin bed. A high quality air mattress is available for a second child. Offering charm and comfort, smiles upon entering are guaranteed!

The cabin is perfect for a couple, a small family with 1-2 children, or three friends traveling together.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: After moving to Asheville in 2003, I knew that these gorgeous mountains would hold me forever. I discovered an interest and talent in home renovations and after restoring several cabins, I left the profession of physical therapy and now focus full-time on managing our log cabin vacation rentals. My other favorite pastimes are gardening, hiking and paddling my kayak on some of our beautiful lakes in the area.

Why the Owner Chose Asheville, NC, USA:
While visiting a friend in Asheville, I happened upon this unique little neighborhood of adorable log cabins that was built as a resort in the 30's. I fell in love with the quaintness of the cabins and the quiet streets lined with huge, beautiful oak and poplar trees.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
While close to downtown and the Biltmore Estate, Hooty's Roost offers a distinctive 'mountain home' feeling that you can escape to after a day of site-seeing. You can sip a glass of wine while sitting in one of the rockers on the front porch in the midst of a historic little neighborhood or grill and dine out on the private patio. Enjoy a vintage log cabin with all the modern amenities!
