About the property

Nice Cabin With 3 Bedrooms 1.5 Bath Off Private Drive Sits On Bee Tree Creek

Escape to this quiet cabin located on the pristine waters of Bee Tree Creek coming directly off the watershed with your own private bamboo forest. In 15 minutes you can be in either downtown Asheville or Black Mountain as it sits directly between the two nestled in a valley near Warren Wilson College. The property backs up to miles of hiking trails, mountains and vistas but is 5 minutes from groceries , Starbucks and 10 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway. In the 1950's this property was part of "Camp Singing Waters". The newly remodeled modern rustic cabin has 3 bedrooms( 2 down and 1 up) with queen size beds and plenty of closet space. There is a full bathroom with large shower on the main floor and a half bath upstairs. There are living rooms on both floors with a reading room upstairs with a small sofa.There is also a sleeper sofa with futon that would hold a child or 2 upstairs.. The dining table holds six with additional seating on the adjoining screened porch. The kitchen has all your basic cooking needs with a new dishwasher. We have just added a new washer and dryer for your convenience. The living room has a flat screen tv with a dvd player and a good selection of movies, also we have wifi so you can connect with our hdmi cord to your laptop and watch your netflix etc.If you have them (no cable). We also have a house phone with unlimited long distance since your cell reception may be spotty although texting seems to work ok. The front of the house has a large screened in porch that comes directly in from the parking area with no stairs. It faces the creek and bamboo forest as does the living room and kitchen area via french doors. The back of the house and the 2 downstairs bedrooms look up the mountain into miles of wilderness. The upstairs bedroom has a large dormer window that looks at the creek and bamboo forest. You will cross the creek and disappear into an acre of large bamboo with manicured paths. If you are looking to escape from it all yet be close to it all this is your place.

About Christopher Eckart

Brian and Chris Eckart (brothers) have lived in the area for several years and love camping in their motor homes. Both own vintage campers that they live in as well on the adjacent property to cabin when in town. When they discovered this land it had a magic that they just had to share. After much hard work they created a fun, beautiful, and relaxing refuge from the busy world. Both are semi retired. Brian is an artist with his art on display and for sale throughout the cabin. Chris is the entertainment director and the better looking of the two.

Christopher Eckart purchased this cabin in 2013

Truely a slice of heaven on earth.

  • 5 of 5

When booking this cabin we had no ideal where exactly the location was. Upon arriving we were so excited to see such a lovely setting.

The cabin itself was clean. We really loved the screened in porch. Sitting on the porch you are able to hear the creek.

Yes, there is a creek in the front of the house with a rock bridge taking you into a forest of bamboo.Such serenity.

Relaxing in the hammock with the water running by was so relaxing. As well as the fire we built at night by the creek.

The cabin is centrally located between Black Mountain and Ashville, both just minutes away.

We enjoyed our visits with Mack the cat. He welcomed us upon arrival and every morning.

Chris the owner was available when needed to answer all our questions.

WE WILL DEFINITELY BE COMING BACK!!

Relaxing retreat- close to Asheville. Loved this place!

  • 4 of 5

The creek and bamboo forest were so relaxing after a long day seeing the sites. Kitchen, grill and fire pit were great for evening meals. Our 3 teenagers loved this place- especially Max the cat. Beds were not the most comfy- Otherwise "5 stars"!

Cozy on the creek...

  • 4 of 5

Eclectic, comfortable cabin on the creek with beautiful spaces to enjoy outside. Convenient to Asheville and Black Mountain but far enough to feel the mountain retreat experience! Dog and kid friendly with lots to explore...bamboo forest, rocky creek and trails to explore! Great family vacation...we will be back!

Secluded yet easy access

  • 5 of 5

We had a great few days of R & R. From not having to deal with a treacherous driveway to how welcoming and home we felt when we arrived. Sitting on the screened porch listing to the flowing water and looking at the bamboo forest made you feel completely secluded yet you're minutes of easy driving away from grocery, restaurants, etc. If you want to be right between Asheville and Black Mountain, this is your place. ps. The local grocery store discount card that was sitting out to use was a nice touch:)

Great spot for a family weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The cottage is a wonderful place for family and dogs. We enjoyed the location, (close to Asheville), the creek was especially wonderful, spent hours by the fire, enjoyed the hammock by the creek, hiked a nearby trail, (walked to it), the bamboo forest made it very private and Chris was extremely pleasant and helpful. I would recommend it and we would come again!
