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" a girl scout camp. 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: 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.
