About the Property

A great place for your mountain experience!!

Special: Limited number of FREE Biltmore Estate passes, now through March 17.
A modern cabin 40 minutes from Asheville. Enjoy this 200 acre retreat. City or country adventures. This is a private cabin which up until a year ago was only used for short visits in the country by our immediate family living in Asheville. You should feel as if you are guests in a well loved vacation home which was custom built and has been tastefully decorated with quality and comfort in mind. To those of you who have stayed before, we just changed beds to add a King downstairs and a Queen + Single upstairs!

You will have access to logging trails above the cabin that are good for hiking. There are wonderful views from up there. There are two creeks on the property with one providing particularly easy access for wading in the pure cold mountain water.

Many attractions are within 20 minutes, including the town of Hot Springs with its famous and historic mineral springs spa. The Depot music hall (Marshall) on Friday nights is free with local bluegrass entertainment. Mainstreet Marshall also boasts several art galleries and quirky restaurants. Rafting and horseback riding are close by as is the French Broad River. Skiing and snow tubing at Wolf Ridge is a fun winter activity.

Nearby Asheville is fantastic and was recently named by National Geographic as one of the 220 best cities in the world! Don't miss the Biltmore Estate, the fabulous Grove Park Inn or funky downtown Asheville.

In downtown Marshall, try 'Zuma's' for great deli and heavenly cookies along with mid-week entertainment or pick up a gourmet chicken pot pie at the 'Pot Pie.' 'Sweet Monkey Bakery & Cafe' also offers decidedly worthy treats.

For groceries, stop at Ingles Grocery on your way to the cabin. It's about a 10 minute trip.

Location

Take exit 19A on I-26 in North Carolina, heading toward Marshall on Hwy 25/70. Continue to Ingles grocery on the right. Be sure to pick up any supplies at Ingles. Take US 25 from Ingles toward Hot Springs for about 5 minutes until you come to a stop light at the Madison Middle School. Turn right onto upper Brush Creek. Proceed about 3/4 mile on paved road. Turn right at the first gravel road (not including driveways) to stay on Upper Brush Creek. Proceed to Laughing Frog and turn left between two barns to stay on Upper Brush Creek. The cabin is about 1/4 mile from that point.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My wife Joan and I have several rental properties across North Carolina that we own/manage, mainly corporate short-term rentals in the RTP area. I am originally from New Orleans while my wife is from Asheville. We manage the Mountain Log Cabin for her father. This lovely home was custom built with locally milled logs and stone as a family weekend retreat, but we just don't have the time to enjoy it - so we are sharing it with visitors to the area.

Why the Owner Chose Marshall, NC, USA:
My wife's parents decided to build this cabin 11 years ago to enjoy the land which was most 'recently' acquired by great-grandparents in the early 1900's. (Look for family photos and a 'temperance pledge' in the cabin.) The land can also be traced back to the 1820's when it was originally purchased from the local Indian agent by a distant relative. Note the pre- civil war cabin on the property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This cabin is the last property at the end of a mountain cove. Follow the road alongside the cabin to walk along a rushing creek or explore the 200 acres high above the cabin. While it feels remote, it is an easy trip to the grocery store, downtown Marshall and even Asheville for a day trip.
