Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2

For those who want to be off the beaten track yet convenient to cultural and scenic attractions, Little Faberge Egg is a blend of modern convenience and rustic charm, located on five secluded acres. See horses grazing from the kitchen window, watch ducks on the pond and songbirds feed while you have breakfast, or hike the trails and logging roads from your front door. Cozy up to a blazing fire and watch as the evening unfolds. This cabin sleeps two, or four with use of the full sleeper sofa. Sit back to relax, recharge, and regroup or take a daytrip to nearby Black Mountain, Downtown Asheville, the Biltmore Estate, or Lake Lure and Chimney Rock Park. Little Faberge Egg is located 20 minutes from Black Mountain and 45 minutes from Downtown Asheville. SHEETS AND TOWELS INCLUDED for your convenience. Please note: the driveway is gravel and the last section is a slight incline. Note from homeowner for 1st time arrivals: The driveway can be tricky. Traction Control Systems are great on pavement. however, not so much OFF ROAD. If your car offers this feature, please TURN IT OFF before you make the approach or your car may stall. Most cars after 2012 have this system. Please disengage before you arrive. Our 2005 Honda Accord climbs the hill like a champ. Our 2005 Tacoma truck needs a running start (about 20mph) from the bottom. I start to gain speed at the pond. Some of our guests prefer to park at the bottom and walk up. Because of the difficulty of the driveway and limited turnaround space above, only passenger cars and trucks allowed. No trailers, campers or RV's! Quiet motorbikes welcome (we have some of the best adventure riding around). Please no nighttime arrivals for the 1st time. PLEASE NOTE: The owner will file for damages for driveway repairs if he finds you have been careless.

Reviewer Comments:

Cabin was very comfortable and cozy. Many nearby trails and mountain views. Going up the "steep" driveway was not a problem. Neighborhood dog was somewhat of a problem with our dogs. All day shooting on Saturday by neighbors prevented us from longer walks with our dogs. Sort of a bummer. Nice new living room furniture, but still that very small TV set, difficult to watch the World Series and college football. Almost the perfect spot for an extended vacation.

Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I absolutely enjoyed our time at the Little Faberge Egg. The cabin felt inviting and cozy, close enough to society, yet far enough for that delightful country feel. As many over reviews show, the steep drive up to the cabin was . . . lets say it felt like a rollercoaster ride. The part where you feel like you are at a ninty degree angle and are about to flip over, wondering if you will ever make it to the top. Thankfully, except for that first night, we did. In the cabin itself, we especially loved the summer room, spending many hours reading on the comfortable couch and enjoying the backyard view. We also took many long walks during our stay. There are so many places to explore. Though we were unable to take our dog with us, the cabin supplied many dog friendly items. Next trip back, we hope to bring our dog.

Reviewer Comments:

Wonderful house on well kept private property and fabulous well-equipped kitchen. We enjoyed the tadpoles in the pond and the lovely deck. The two dislikes are the authentic bear rug with head and claws attached and, as most reviewers point out, the drive way. A rainy week meant that after one attempt in my Honda civic I parked at the bottom of the hill after managing a U-turn each time without much space provided for one. Will return someday soon, hopefully, and consider the hike up the hill part of the experience.

Everything great except the driveway up to the house. It was wet and my car got stuck. a neighbor (Todd) helped and it was fine after that. dry the next day.

Owner's Response: Oh no! Sorry to hear you got stuck in the driveway. The owner just had some work done, but it is still steep and we generally recommend that folks put their vehicle in 'low and go' but the weather hasn't lended itself to easy drives lately. Glad it was a good stay otherwise! Update 8/17 - the driveway was scraped by the neighbor after issues occurred with the driveway.
