What a great weekend we had here. So peaceful and cozy. The views are awesome. Loved having dinner at sunset at the picnic table out back. Later roasting marshmallows over the fire pit.

Idyllic, peaceful getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Stunning and peaceful are two words that come to mind when describing Tranquility Knoll. We we're looking forward a home base during our vacation outside of the city where we could enjoy nature. We came across this cabin and were captivated by the description and pictures. We were blown away by the location and the cabin when we arrived. It is such a beautiful location. The cabin is wonderful, it's nicely decorated and well provisioned. It was peaceful at night and waking up to the mountain view every day was just amazing. It was great as a base camp for visits to Asheville and the surrounding areas. Communication with Linde was easy. We didn't have any issues with the cabin. It's a beautiful place and we hope to come back.

Great Place to Visit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights and were completely comfortable. Lovely cabin with everything you could need. We didn't do much cooking but everything was there if you wanted to. It was nice to see all the animals around the cabin, cows, bison, rabbits. Sitting on the front porch, the view was absolutely amazing. Could have stayed there all day. Had a lovely chat with Linde and Carl. Wonderful hosts. Would visit again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful relaxing property

  • 5 of 5

This property has amazing views and provided a very relaxing vacation. The kitchen has everything you need to cook any meal. If the weather is just right you could sit in the back yard and roast marshmellows in the fire pit. There's a walking trail nearby if you want to get out and enjoy the view. If you want to stock up the frig, there a grocery store 8 min away. Downtown Asheville is a quick drive away.

Loved this little cabin with the great BIG VIEW! Cozy get away for two. The cabin had everything we needed. The mountain breezes were sublime. Cool air blew through the windows day and night. Never needed AC and one night had to close the windows and it was the end of June! I hope to stay there again.
