About the Property
Secluded Mountain Top Cabin-HotTub-PetFriendlyFirePit 20min Downtown Asheville
Situated high on the very top of Bill’s Mountain surrounded by 1,000 acres of pristine wilderness right outside your door. Two delightful cabins - just right for a romantic couples getaway or a small family vacation. Many of our quests have enjoyed celebrating their anniversary or honeymoon on top of the mountain. The cabins are very spacious, newly renovated, and new comfortable furnishings. Take in the fantastic views while setting in the hot tub.
A 4WD/AWD vehicle is necessary to get to your location. We are available 7 days a week to drive you to and from your cabin to the parking area at the bottom of the mountain at no additional charge.
Most AWD vehicles, such as Subaru, will have no difficulty driving to the top, but two wheel drive vehicles will need to park at in the lower parking area and Bob or Kristen will take you to the top. They live just down the road and are available seven days a week to assist you.
Enjoy 30-mile spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains and Mountain Mitchell. Very rural setting only 5 minutes to I-26 and 12 miles to downtown Asheville. Close to hiking, fishing, waterfalls, zip line, white water rafting, golf, horseback riding, Biltmore House, Grove Park Inn and more.

You will appreciate the quit natural surroundings that include fabulous mountain fresh air, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, native wildlife and trails for hiking to your heart’s content.

For you photography folks, take plenty of pictures of the natural surroundings along with the wildlife and our free roaming pet – Burt the Emu. Give Burt a banana and he will be your friend forever.
We are dog lovers and welcome well-behaved dogs.
Bring a mat and practice your Yoga in complete solitude. For early morning risers, look down the mountain and check out the morning cloud cover as you eat breakfast on the patio.
