About the property

WISHING TREE- a Peaceful cabin spilling over w charm. Just 10 min fm Dwtn Ashevi

Sweet 1 bed +1 bathroom cabin in the woods. So special and unique because it an authentic 75 year old cabin on well tended & well loved land.

Located just 10 minutes driving from downtown Asheville and the River Arts District , 5 minutes to UNCA ,

Easy access to the interstate.

Located just 1 mile from I-26.

Our home is Quiet and comfortable , filled with sun light and artwork. There is a "Gas log " stove for romance and warmth. Hardwood floors throughout .

You will find a Luscious queen sized bed with linens and a bay window overlooking lush gardens. A window air conditioner keeps it cool although here in the Mountains quite often it's cool enough to sleep w the windows open during the summer months

A kitchen with a gas stove, full sized fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster and blender etc.

Large walk- in closet w full sized Washer/Dryer.

Hang out on the deck with a cool drink or have your morning coffee on the front patio. Perfect for a romantic get away.

Lovely organic gardens w medicinal plants and blooming flowers from March-October. Sit outside and you may hear my favorite bird call,,that of a "Woodland Trush". Early in the year you ll hear the small Spring Peeper frogs. And there is the sound of the fountain in the goldfish pond at the bottom of the yard.

This is a very unique cabin located behind my own home which is an 100+ year old Log Cabin. The land is filled w spirit and love, abundance and life. I am so lucky to live here and to be able to share the enchantment with you.

Ps..I am also happy to give you a tour of my BeeLoved Bee yard. I’m a Bee Keeper!

Located, only 6 miles from Downtown Asheville and minutes to Weaverville. So sweet. A rare opportunity to glimpse an artist lifestyle. The propery is filled w flowers and gardens,a pond ,mature trees, oaks, dogwoods,redbuds. Medicinal garden includes solumans seal ,trilliums,comfrey ,Motherwort and borage.

I have an apiary( bee temple) at the lower end of the property- our bees are out of site but, you are welcome to walk over to the properties edge and come sit and observe them.

It's a mountain retreat , so enchanting you may even glimpse a Farie from the corner of your eye.

What makes this cabin unique

Unique 75 year old cabin in the woods. Cosy, charming and quirky. Comfortably outfitted w luscious queen sized bed and fully stocked kitchen . There is a Deck on the back of the cabin and garden for morning coffee or sunset glass of beer or wine.

Gas log stove adds charm, romance and warmth.

Brimming w artwork. It is both peaceful and quiet.

NOTE: The road is a little bumpy and walkway is a little uneven and the charm is unequivocal

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a long week -end Hiking the trails on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The cabin was the perfect location for access to restaurants in Asheville and then hiking during the day. Rebecca recommended a hike along the Larel River and then we rented Hot Tub ( # 5) at nearby Hot Springs. We had a fantastic vacation. The cabin was very clean ,comfortable and quiet. We loved staying at the Wishing Tree. Only wished we could stay longer

The Wishing a Tree cabin is located on a private gravel driveway. The road gets bumpy after a big rain. It's about a 3 minute drive on gravel. The property was built many years ago and the walkway is not perfectly level so take care.

Cute cabin! Nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is so welll provisioned - you will find everything you need with plenty of linens. You are quite close to other houses, but because of the way it is situated you can't see the other houses and it feels nicely private. The bed is very comfortable, and the cabin not far to places you want to go in Asheville.
