About Sheila Fox

My husband Steve and I built this cabin in the Fall of 2012. We are both from the Asheville area and love the mountains. As travelers ourselves, we built this cabin with you in mind. Taking care to make it a place you and your family will want to come back to again and again. Every season here has something to offer. From the beauty of Spring to the quietness of a Winter snow, there is something here for everyone.

Why Sheila Fox chose Smoky Mountains

We built this cabin as a vacation rental because this area of Buncombe County is so beautiful and we wanted to share it with others. We live just 10 minutes away and have lived in our home for 21 years. This area is special because its close to downtown, yet far enough away to enjoy nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay. It was cozy and quiet. We had everything we needed. Thank you.

Cozy Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed staying in this beautiful cabin in Leicester while we packed our daughter up from completing her Freshman year at UNCA. It was a short drive to campus and downtown Asheville and was the perfect size with two bedrooms and a cute loft with a double bed. Our fur babies enjoyed staying here as much as we did since they had space to roam. It was a perfect weekend getaway for our family!

Everything was as advertised - we had a great time! Not right in Asheville but very, very convenient to downtown and other interesting spots around Asheville.

Perfect get-away for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay over the holidays since most of our family is in the Carolinas and we're living in Cleveland, OH. The location was perfect and what a great value! The house was immaculate and very functionally laid out. We had everything we needed including plenty of towels, dishes, utensils, and even condiments, which was really nice. The surroundings were nice and quiet and there was lots of room for our dog, Buster to run, which he loved. We hope to return again in the near future.

Would love to stay again

  • 5 of 5

Clean and tidy. The owners were pleasant and responsive. Our kids loved the bunk beds and loft. Everything you need.....fridge, plates, coffee, washer, dryer...... Better than a hotel in my opinion. Pet friendly and our dog enjoyed that he could roam around outside too. Felt secluded. But easy drive to Asheville and Biltmore Estate. Had a wonderful visit there. The pictures don't do it justice.

Grey Fox Cabin was great!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our six-night stay at Grey Fox Cabin! It's great to have a location that is pet-friendly. The property was clean and well-maintained and the owner is very friendly and helpful. The cabin was beautiful and private with excellent kitchen amenities. It's the perfect get-away spot in the Leicester, NC area!
