About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Just outside the city limits of Asheville, Sophie's Cabin is a couple of minutes away from the Blue Ridge Parkway and only 10 minutes from downtown, Biltmore Estate, and within walking distance of trails, river, Folk Art Center, and dog park.

Enjoy soaking in the hot tub or sitting in the rockers while watching the sunset. There is a large fenced in yard for your dog. The master bedroom has a king bed and an adjoining full bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and full bath.

There is a fully equipped kitchen, cable TV with streaming Netflix, washer/dryer, gas grill, A/C, and many more amenities.

Sophie's Cabin is so convenient to downtown and many of the attractions of Asheville, yet has that feeling of being out in the country.

Perfect Location and Great for Dog Owners

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took a mini vacation to Asheville to visit our daughter. Our four-legged friends traveled with us and truly enjoyed the getaway! Sophie's Hideaway is a cozy cabin with plenty of space! When we arrived, the owner, Nancy, left us a note welcoming us with a loaf of cranberry bread in the fridge and fresh flowers on the kitchen table. There were even doggie treats for our fur babies! The master suite upstairs was wonderful and there was a bedroom downstairs with a queen bed and another small room with a twin bed. The large, fenced in yard was perfect for our dogs and they enjoyed learning how to use the doggie door. We got lots of great pictures! The wrap-around deck was a plus as well as the hot tub. I highly recommend staying at Sophie's Hideaway if you want to visit the Asheville area! We will definitely be returning in the near future.

Perfect spot for our family's 2nd Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We spent some time in Asheville for a long weekend right after Christmas. There was ample space for myself, husband, teenage son, adult daughter and her boyfriend, and our two dogs. I have learned over the past year or so that while many rentals say they are "pet friendly", what they really mean is "pet tolerant". This beautiful cabin was a comfortable, clean, cozy location for all members of our family, even the four legged ones. I felt more like we were visiting at a friend's home instead of staying in a rental. There are multiple welcoming touches like fresh bread and hand made soaps. Towels specifically for cleaning off dogs who had been enjoying the fenced in yard were placed strategically by a door. Nancy was always quick to respond to any communication. Close to several hot spots, we visited the Biltmore Estate and (thanks to unseasonably warm weather) hiking off the Blue Ridge Parkway. I hope we will have opportunity to visit again, because four days was just not enough!

About Nancy Richards

I have lived in Asheville for 20 years and love the mountains and trails that surround the city. Downtown has gone through an amazing transition, with wonderful restaurants, galleries, shops and more. Most of my adult life I have been a trail runner and love the near by Mountain to Sea trail and Bent Creek area. My passions are traveling, hiking, swimming, biking and yoga. When we moved here I also found my creative side in weaving on a loom.

Nancy Richards purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Nancy Richards chose Asheville
