About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Appalachia at its best. A mountain cabin re-created within the basement (first floor, ground level) of my home for your pleasure. Private entrance(s), covered deck/patio, open deck, great view, very private setting.

The location has an East-West orientation, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great place to sit, relax, and enjoy your favorite beverage.

The cabin is fully self contained. It has its own kitchen, bath with shower (no tub), and a small living/dining area. One bedroom with a king size bed.

Centrally located between I-40 and I-26, on Busbee Mountain, the property borders the Biltmore Estate and blends in with the Blue Ridge Parkway at an elevation of 3,346 feet.

Well behaved pets are more than welcome!

Easy booking online or with the owner using check or credit cards.

About George Stanley

I am retired. I enjoy my two cats, Olly and Geo.

I retired from the Community College System and enjoy meeting people, thus the rental.

I enjoy traveling and finding neat places. I hope I have created one here.

George Stanley purchased this apartment in 2007

Why George Stanley chose Smoky Mountains

I had a half -finished basement when I purchased the home, which I separated from the house upstairs. I envisioned a downstairs cabin so others could enjoy the beautiful mountains as I do.

What makes this apartment unique

Living on a rural mountain and bordering the Biltmore Estate Property, there is an abundance of wildlife - turkey, deer, pheasants, bear, raccoons, generally all sorts of wildlife. I have pictures of bear in the yard and in close-by trees.

At an elevation of 3,346 feet, the cabin overlooks a huge valley. The valley is often filled with fog, creating a beautiful sunrise at eye-level.

So peaceful and secluded yet so Close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

George is a wonderful host He’s extremely friendly but not constantly in your face. The VIEW is truly one of a kind. Pair that with a covered deck, very private cabin, and beautiful property with numerous seating areas scattered around that you and your pet can enjoy and only 5 min to Blue Ridge Parkway, 15 min to Biltmore Village, or 20 to downtown Asheville there is no better location. The drive up to the house is a little tight and steep but my Prius made it up and down without any difficulties whatsoever. Sally(my dog) and I have already booked our spot for next year.

Peaceful with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the cabin to celebrate our 50th anniversary and visit with family in Asheville. The cabin was comfortable, the view was fantastic, and our host was very friendly.

Great place in the mountains. Great host!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed two nights but wish we could have stayed longer. Saw a bear on the last evening! You will be completely satisfied if you like things a little rustic and have a sense of adventure. George (the owner) is very pleasant and easy to talk to. If you're not used to mountain driving you're in for a challenge the first time up to the cabin. The second time is easier.

Secluded mountain gem, great host!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin during when the remnants of Hurricane Irma came blowing through! George made sure we had everything we needed, even when the mountain lost power-we woke up to the gentle purring of a generator! We had a wonderful stay and recommend highly!

Views, tranquility, value

  • 4 of 5

George was extremely friendly! The cabin is quaint and rustic. Location is fantastic for tourists visiting for Asheville's downtown amenities, but want the peace and tranquility of a mountain cabin. The only noise you're here at night are crickets and the wind. And you can bring your dog. It doesn't get much better than that!
