About Steve M Armstrong

Steve Armstrong is a Tampa Bay Realtor with Smith & Associates Real Estate who enjoys spending time in Western North Carolina. Our NC property was originally purchased as a place our family could enjoy all of the beauty of the area and the excitement in Asheville. We look forward to shaing this place with you and your family.

Steve M Armstrong purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Steve M Armstrong chose Marshall

For several years I looked for an escape that was remote but still close to Asheville. After many attempts to get what I wanted, we had just about given up. When this foreclosed unfinished property came available, I saw the perfect opportunity to have that dream. The home has a very steep driveway that winds up to the homesite which give you a feel that you are away from civilization. With 28 acres on mountain top views. We decided this would be our private retreat.

What makes this cabin unique

With our back porch with rocking chairs and a swing overlooking the valley, we hope you enjoy this truely modern cabin. As remote as the home is, there is plenty to do in the area. Please note gravel driveway is very steep, however there are two landing areas to park in if you cant get up. 4 Wheel Drive, All Wheel Drive, Rear wheel drive recommended.

Beautiful secluded cabin retreat! Comfortable, spacious, tranquil porches. Excellent condition!

  • 5 of 5

This might be the most perfect cabin we’ve ever stayed in over the last 20 years of travel. The perfect layout, 3 big bedrooms with space for more, a great central room and a nicely sized and equipped kitchen overlooking. HUGE porches front and back. The cabin is well taken care of, and is warm and welcoming.

This is a great get away; if you’re looking for a basecamp to visit the area, be advised the house is 20 minutes off of the highway. 45 minutes to downtown Asheville, 2ish Hours to Cherokee entrance to GSM NP.

Driveway while steep, is in great shape, and not treacherous at all.

Prompt and clear communication with owner. No issues during our stay.

Wish it was ours!

Cabin stay

  • 3 of 5

Stay was fine, cabin could use some maintence, a four wheel or at least an all wheel drive vehicle is necessary. We were told there was three keys only could find one in the lockbox. All garbage was taken to dump. Thanks for the stay, Art

Great mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot for enjoying the mountains, including good trails on the property. The need for 4-wheel drive is real; fortunately we were able to get a 4x4 F-150 truck with 4 doors for only $300/week from Enterprise and it worked out great.

Very nice and quiet. Very remote

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at this mountain house. It is very remote and quiet. There were a million stars visible. There is a great kitchen with two bathrooms and split bedrooms. The washer and dryer was great for our family's stay.

The house was very clean and well equipped. Even though there was a lot of wildlife around the outside, there were no bugs inside.

There are a couple of things that anyone going to the house should know. The house is remote. Every trip to town is a full trip because town is not really close. Also the driveway is very steep and has switch backs. Finally, cellphone reception was sketchy at best. None of these things are positive or negative by themselves but they should be considered.

Overall, we were very happy with our stay! Thank you!
