Situated high on the very top of Bill’s Mountain surrounded by 1,000 acres of pristine wilderness right outside your door. Two delightful cabins - just right for a romantic couples getaway or a small family vacation. Many of our quests have enjoyed celebrating their anniversary or honeymoon on top of the mountain. The cabins are very spacious, newly renovated, new comfortable furnishings and two person jacuzzi. Take in the fantastic views while setting 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 quit 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 patio.

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 3,300 feet with mountain air that will let you sleep like you never did before. Book a visit today – you’ll be glad you did!

A perfect and fun spot for an Asheville area vacation -- as long as you have 4WD or AWD

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this little mountain retreat was wonderful. There are 2 houses that have a few units to be rented out. There was plenty of room for our 4 and 6 year old children to run around and hike and explore. My wife adored the porch and the hot tub. I loved the scenery and the swings. While we did not have an opportunity to use the fire pits they were well placed and perfectly stocked. The interior of the unit we stayed in was clean and nicely remodeled. There is no stove or oven, but there is a microwave and a hot plate. It was a joy. My children's favorite part however was going UP AND DOWN the mountain to get to the house. It was fun and we saw a bunny and a turkey on the gravel roadway on our way up and down. I missed in the posting that you ought to have 4WD, but it is needed.

Truly a PARADISE IN THE SKY!

  • 5 of 5

The views from Island in the Sky can not be beat! Kristen was our inn keeper. The fridge stopped, and within 12 hours, it was totally repaired. We did not have a four wheel drive car, so she literally came to get us, and took us back to the bottom (where we parked our car). We planned to cook all of our meals instead of going out. The only suggestion, would be to have a full size oven, or a toaster oven. We would DEFINATELY go back!!!! Lots to do in the nearby area.

A beautiful, peaceful place to spend a few days.

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Island in the Sky was wonderful. We couldn't get our vehicle up the hill but the hosts couldn't have been more accommodating. The views from the place were constantly changing and always fabulous. The place was clean and was a wonderful fit for what we were looking for.

Our go to vacation spot

We've stayed at this property numerous times and it never disappoints. As always, the property and owners are great. Best view, great accommodations, and top notch customer service from Bob, Melissa and Kristen. It is located a short drive to Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Downtown Weaverville. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful weekend at the mountain top cabin and can't wait to go again. The accommodations were fantastic and we got to see Asheville and some of the surrounding countryside. Bob and Kristen were awesome and are there to make your stay a special one. We can't wait to go again.
