The Master bedroom has a queen bed with French doors that open to a full length front porch that is perfect for your morning coffee, bird-watching, or spotting the deer that forage in the surrounding shrubs. The 2nd bedroom has bunk beds that are perfect for children or adults. The loft, which overlooks the main living area, has a full size bed and is accessed by a custom built ladder. The bathroom has a walk in tile shower and a marble topped vanity. After a day of sightseeing you can enjoy a home cooked meal in the well equipped kitchen or throw a steak on the grill outside on the rock patio. On a cool evening you might enjoy a fire in the wood stove. The entire cabin is decorated with artwork from local artists. There are 2 TV's with Dish Network just in case the kids want to watch something different. WI-FI is also provided. Surrounded by trees, the Grey Fox is the perfect place to shake off the cares of the world and enjoy time with family and friends.

About David Vicary

I moved here over 25 years ago from upstate New York. I've witnessed Asheville grow up from a sleepy mountain town to the Beer Mecca it is today but I still enjoy country living. Just ask and I'll let you know where to get the best brews in town!

Why David Vicary chose Leicester

Come relax by the warmth of the fire in our pet-friendly Smoky Mountain hide-away. This area of Buncombe County is so beautiful and we wanted to share it with others. You’ll be centrally located to all the great activities the Asheville area has to offer. This area is special because it’s close to downtown, yet far enough away to enjoy nature. 15 minutes to West Asheville, 15 minutes to French Broad River. 30 minutes to the Smokey Park Highway, 40 minutes to Hot Springs, plus many local farms and hiking spots to explore!

What makes this cabin unique

Wood stove. Logs provided. Cabin is private, surrounded by trees and filled with artwork from local artists.

Nice hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Grey Fox Cabin over Labor Day weekend. It was a great location that was convenient to Asheville and lots of great hiking spots around the area. The cabin had everything we needed and was very clean and cozy. Even though there were other houses around, we felt isolated and it was very quiet. Our dog also enjoyed the rabbits we saw on the driveway. We would definitely come again!

Wonderful Stay at Grey Fox Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was everything it was advertised to be. Quiet, peaceful, fully equipped and just what we needed. Would recommend to anyone! Do be prepared for the gravel road in but is easy to navigate! We found fresh blueberries and picked those one morning. People were very friendly and amazing how much we saw of "countryside" in the area.
