About Tammy Capps
Tammy is from North Carolina and has directed non-profit youth programs and a local Americorps program for most of her career. Tammy has worked to be a good steward of the land, these mountains and our mother earth: growing her own fruits and vegetables, preserving them for the winter, recycling and composting all garbage, trying to reuse instead of buying new when possible. Efforts are always made to buy local and American made products. After a great deal of planning and hard work, Tammy is excited to invite you for a luxurious, romantic stay in the cabin!
Why Tammy Capps chose Candler
Why the Owner Chose Asheville: Tammy planned and renovated this cabin with her own two hands over the last twenty years, while continuing to work full-time. She started the project with the goal of renovating a cabin with a small carbon footprint and utilizing many materials from the mountain. WOW, what a project! With lots and lots of hard work and the loving support of her family the cabin is ready for guests. Why the property? Tammy spent most of her childhood in this area and fell in love with the beauty and majesty of these mountains in the Pisgah National Forest at an early age. When looking to move back to the area and purchase a home in 1991, she would only look at homes in the Candler/Upper Hominy area believing this to be the most beautiful community in the Asheville area. Twenty years ago Tammy began to clear land and landscape the 4-acre property. The project was worth it---she built a mountain oasis beyond belief.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin provides all of the modern comforts in a peaceful wooded setting at the base of Mt. Pisgah. The yearround views of the mountain through the large glass windows are spectacular. Couples can enjoy both the sunrise and the sunset over the mountain tops. The property is a certified wildlife habitat proving the four basic elements needed for wildlife to thrive: food water, cover and places to raise their young. The wooded canopy of oaks, poplar and maple cover the mountain view during the summer months, and provide cool shade for relaxing outside on the decks, gazebo or in the hammock beside the waterfall. The cabin is positioned so that passive solar assists the heating and cooling.

Sports & Adventure Activities
This cabin was wonderful and quaint. Great location..close enough to Asheville but still out there so you feel like you have your own private piece of paradise. We used the trail guides provided to search for waterfalls in the morning and then drove to Asheville in the afternoon and nights (15 minute drive - we found a great local barbecue spot on the the way into the city - Doc Browns - for lunch)
We visited early spring when things were just starting to bloom and it was a bit chilly so the hot tub was a great addition. would love to come back in summer or fall.
Relaxing and Perfect
The cabin was relaxing and amazing . We really enjoyed the views, hot tub, and fire pit !!
This cabin was an absolutely perfect place to get away! Super cozy and decorated beautifully! You instantly feel pampered when you walk in the door, with spa like music playing and the lights turned on. Waking up in the morning just to rollover to see the sun shining on the mountains was extra special and cannot be compared. So many special spots to relax on this property, from the mediation area, to the fire pit, the 2 decks, to the hot tub. There is nothing that could have made out visit any better! We will be booking again!
Beautiful and Peaceful
Short, but beautiful drive to Asheville and all its fun amenities. Property is well maintained and cozy. We truly enjoyed our stay in the winter, can only imagine how beautiful it is in the spring, summer, and fall.
My fiancé and I had a great weekend. The cabin was postcard ready. Absolutely beautiful.
The cabin was everything described and then some. We had a great time just enjoying the fireplace and slowing down for a while.
Peaceful perfect get away with a view!
Me and my husband absolutely loved our stay at this cabin! Tammy was so accommodating and really take pride in providing for her guests! The view is UNREAL! And the pictures hardly do it justice! Highly recommend this spot!
Only 16 miles from downtown Asheville, the cabin is located beside the Pisgah National Forest. Hiking trails are abundant only minutes away on the Blue Ridge Parkway. March to November you can enjoy breakfast at the Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway. A favorite downtown shopping spot in Asheville, Hendersonville, and Waynseville is Mast General Store. Our favorite restaurants are the Admiral and Curate', you must make reservations early though. Other great places to dine in downtown Asheville include Limones, Salsa, Zombra, Tupelo Honey and Mela.
