About the property

5 Bedroom / 4 bath with basement Sleeps 21

As you enter the Asheville Lodge, you will immediately feel a true lodge experience. This real mountain house will captivate you with its soaring rafters and high ceilings, vaulted spaces and the warmth of wood throughout, this home is a treat!

The open kitchen, dining room, and great room, with stone wood burning fireplace, allow everyone ample space to gather and spend time together. The great room is filled with light from the expansive windows across the entire back of the home, which rise two stories in the great room. Three levels gives everyone the opportunity to go off and find a quiet corner if need be, or grab someone for a game of foosball or poker in the terrace level TV room.

Now, step out on to the expansive deck that runs the entire length of the home, and take in the long range mountain view that will entertain you your entire stay. There is a fire pit on the deck, so pull up a chair and watch the sunset, as a blanket of stars fill the sky. A hot jacuzzi/tub is also there for your pleasure.

You are just minutes from away from America's favorite scenic byway, The Blue Ridge Parkway, biking, hiking, white water rafting, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing, zip lining, Segway tours... just about any outdoor activity! Or, take a quick ride to downtown Asheville to enjoy the first-rate restaurants, shopping, galleries, spas, and entertainment.

This private log home is 6 minutes, 4 miles, northeast of downtown Asheville, 25 minutes from Asheville Regional airport, 10 minutes to the gates of the Biltmore estate. Located at approximately 3,000 feet in elevation, which is just an amazing view. Asheville Lodge, does have a paved steep driveway, very common in mountain homes.

About Mercedes Giron

My husband and I live in middle Georgia and just fell in love with this true log cabin in the Smoky Mountains.

Mercedes Giron purchased this house in 2013

Why Mercedes Giron chose Smoky Mountains

We love the way the cabin gives you a true mountain feel yet you wind down the mountain and you are right there in downtown Asheville.

What makes this house unique

There are multiple chairs on both docks overlooking the long mountain range views. Just breath taking!

What a beautiful and amazing house so close to downtown yet privately tucked into the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

This house is just perfect for what me and my friends wanted in a vacation! The house itself is truly beautiful inside and out. Here you can have whatever adventure or vacation you desire. Stay in with a warm fire, beautiful view, and warm hot tub or call a cheap uber to downtown for breweries and music. I will certainly be returning in the future!

The cabin was perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean, stocked with towels and cleaning supplies. Mercedes was so sweet and easy to get in touch with when we had a short time without power. She even called back to check on us the next day. The cabin is BEAUTIFUL and spacious and was the perfect setting for our family Christmas!

Beautiful and Roomy!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this lovely log home. The view off the deck was great and the interior was beautiful. We stayed here for my son's wedding and had multiple families at the house. I looked at a lot of houses before choosing this one including many houses that were bigger or had more bedrooms. The way that Mercedes has this house set up is perfect for family gatherings and holding multiple families. A couple things that are not immediately obvious from the website—there is only one bedroom on the bottom level. It has a king size bed and two twin beds (and a fireplace). I thought it was two bedrooms, but it is just one. But this does make it a great bedroom for a family with small kids. The master bedroom is wonderful and has a great walk in closet. The hot tub is right outside the door to the master bedroom. There is another bedroom on the main level which was perfect for my mom who cannot handle stairs.

The fireplace in the great room is wonderful. Since our two year old granddaughter was with us I really appreciated the fact that the fireplace was raised. We could enjoy a fire without worrying about her getting too close.

We brought a baby gate to block off the stairs to the loft but those stairs are not steep and are carpeted so the baby could navigate the steps if we forgot to put the gate up. The steps to the lower level are steeper but thankfully there is a door to that stairwell. There is also plenty of seating and plenty of tables for meals. This is the perfect location for a family reunion or other family gathering and perfect for large family meals. The driveway is very steep but if you want to rent a home in the mountains with any kind of view, then you will get a steep driveway. Fortunately, there is plenty of room for multiple cars at the bottom of the driveway. But I wouldn't suggest anyone bring an RV or bus since they may have trouble getting those kinds of vehicles up the driveway.

We had a hectic weekend with the wedding and I wish we had more time to enjoy the great view and fireplace. The home is as beautiful as the pictures suggest and Mercedes is a great homeowner. I would definitely rent this home again for any family gathering. Everyone enjoyed their stay at this homey cabin!

truly perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Had never done VRBO until now but had such an awesome experience. Came with 14 girls for a bachelorette weekend-- house is SO spacious, so clean, so organized. The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking big meals. Uber had no problem getting to the house at all hours. As close as you can get to town for this size house. (10 min drive or-so). Home owner is fabulous to work with-- I emailed her many times prior to the trip and she responded very quickly each time. Would DEFINITELY rent again!
