Property description

Situated high on Bill Mountain surrounded by over 1,000 acres of pristine wilderness right outside your door. A delightful cabin - just right for a romantic couples getaway or a small family vacation. Many of our quests have enjoyed celebrating their anniversary or honeymoon on the mountain. The cabin is very spacious, newly renovated, and new comfortable furnishings. Enjoy setting by the fireplace while enjoying the cool mountain air. Take in the fantastic views in the hot tub.

A 4WD/AWD vehicle is necessary to get to your location. We are available 7 days a week to drive you to and from your cabin to the parking area at the bottom of the mountain at no additional charge.

Enjoy 30-mile spectacular views of the Smoky Mountains and Mountain Mitchell. Very rural setting only 5 minutes to I-26 and 12 miles to downtown Asheville. Close to hiking, fishing, waterfalls, zip line, white water rafting, golf, horseback riding, Biltmore House, Grove Park Inn and more.

You will appreciate the quiet, natural surroundings that include fabulous mountain fresh air, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, native wildlife and trails for hiking to your heart’s content. Relax in the cool mountain air in the evenings and have a bonfire, relive your childhood, play horseshoes, enjoy our tree swings, play games, and have a cookout in the secluded area chocked full of nature. For you photography folks, take plenty of pictures of the natural surroundings along with the wildlife and our free roaming pet – Burt the Emu. Give Burt a banana and he will be your friend forever.

We are dog lovers and welcome well-behaved dogs.

Bring a mat and practice your Yoga in complete solitude. For early morning risers, look down the mountain and check out the morning cloud cover as you eat breakfast on the deck.

Take a trip to Asheville and enjoy the world famous Biltmore Estate & Winery, The Grove Park Inn, downtown shopping that includes arts and crafts, furniture, antiques, and the finest dining in all of North Carolina. Then go by downtown Weaverville – small town with a big heart where people say hello and will make you feel welcome. While there, stop and enjoy Blue Mountain Pizza and the famous Well-Bred Bakery and Café – where you can sample the Mountain Éclair and other bakery items that will leave you astonished and wanting more.

Check out the Navitat Zip Line Canopy Adventure for a heart pumping experience. Just down the road is the French Broad Rafting Expedition with Kayaking, tubing and white water rafting, with a professional tour guide by USA Rafting Company. During the winter months visit the Wolf Laurel Ski Resort at exit 3 off I-26. Drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway and visit Mountain Mitchell the highest mountain east of the Mississippi and Grandfather Mountain best known for its mile-high swinging bridge, the highest in America built in 1952. There are many beautiful waterfalls to see, Douglas Falls is about 21 miles away.

At the end of the day, see a unique and wonderful sunset at The Island in the Sky. Sleep well at 3,000 feet with mountain air that will let you sleep like you never did before. Book a visit today – you’ll be glad you did!
