3 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Mountain Views.
Views. Privacy. Convenience. This three bedroom, two bath 1200 square foot cabin sits on about 5 acres of mountaintop privacy.
The incredible view from the porch is that of the distant mountains around Mt. Pisgah, the Blue Ridge Parkway winding across the ridgeline, and the uninhabited Pisgah National Forest. Watching the sunrise in the morning from the front porch, with the smoky fog lingering in the lower valley, guests get the sense that they are "Among the Clouds". It is truly a amazing way to begin the day.

Downtown Asheville, with endless dining, shopping, and entertainment is only 20 minutes away.
Among the Clouds Cabin is reached after driving through a forest of rhododendron and up the steep mountain. There is a large front porch with rocking chairs and a six person hot tub to relax in and soak up the view. There is a fire pit, picnic table, and a charcoal grill located just off the porch.

The cabin was renovated in 2015, there are wood floors throughout, granite countertops, and a stone gas fireplace. It is bright and airy with vaulted ceilings, and a "bear, cozy cabin and fishing lodge theme décor throughout.
There is a steep climb up the mountain to get the views! 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive vehicles make it up without a problem. It is really exciting the first time you drive up!
Of course snow/ice will impact the ability of any vehicle. If the driveway becomes too slippery to drive up, you will have to park at the bottom and walk up. It is about 1/2 mile and about a 45% incline. If you are considering reserving in the winter months, please understand that it is possible you may have to park at the bottom and walk up during inclement weather.

About Shelly Hawk
When I was growing up in SE Ohio, people used to asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I would respond with "A New Yorker!". When I got to NYC after college, I found myself looking for a way back home. After raising our family in Princeton, NJ my husband, Sean and I decided to move to Asheville. I feel like I am home again. The mountains, the city and the people drew us to this special place and we are looking forward to letting our roots grow deep here. We enjoy all that is just outside our door in downtown Asheville; the great restaurants, craft breweries, and meeting new people. Kayaking, hiking and outdoor adventures are often on our itinerary.
Shelly Hawk purchased this House in 2016
Why Shelly Hawk chose Candler
The view captured us!! The moment we took in the view we knew this property was special. Sean and I have been looking at real estate in the Asheville area for 10 years and after recently moving into a condo in downtown Asheville, we spotted this property for sale. We took a short drive and fell in love... with the house, so well maintained and meticalously cared for, the spa, privacy, outdoors fire pit and of course the view! We are excited to have the opportunity to share it all with you.
What makes this House unique
VIEWS! VIEWS! VIEWS! The views from this cabin are incredible! You will constantly be saying "Look at that view!" It is also very CONVENIENT and close to Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mt. Pisgah. It is a PRIVATE piece of paradise.

Great weekend with old friends at Among the Clouds
We take an annual retreat to catch up with old friends each year. Our experience with Shelly and Sean and their beautiful home was one of the best experiences we’ve had. From the start, Shelly was kind enough to stay in good communication about the possibility of bad weather. Luckily we had fantastic weather and the cabin was even available to us for check in early! Among the Clouds is very clean and fully stocked- we were delighted to find towels nicely folded on the freshly made beds, all of the cooking supplies we needed, and a clean hot tub to relax in. The driveway is quite steep, we actually had one car the couldn’t make it up and had to park at the base of the hill. The fire pit outside and indoor gas fire place were awesome for sitting around and catching up with our old pals. Thank you for a great weekend!
It is wonderful to hear you all had such a wonderful reunion at Among the Clouds. Thanks for coming.
As impressive as the pictures are, they just don't do it justice. The view is absolutely stunning!!! The cabin was very cozy and comfortable and had everything we needed!! Thank you for being a wonderful host!!!
Thank you for being such great guests! You cared for the house like it was your own!!! It was left in great shape and I appreciate wonderful communication! Come back soon!
Amazing views and relaxation
Shelly, your cabin was amazing! I loved how private it was but yet so close to everything. I would recommend your place to anyone planning a trip to Asheville.
My friends and I had a great time, the views were great and the cabin was perfect (felt like home). Pisgah hwy was an incredible drive and took us right to our hikes. I can not wait to go back!!!
There are no words!
I guess spectacular is as close as I can get. The view is spectacular, the cabin is beautiful, and the view is breathtaking. Shelly is THE BEST, never had such a great and thoughtful hostess. Will hopefully come again sometime.
Brenda and family! You were great guests! Thank you for enjoying Among the Clouds Cabin! Thank you for taking such great care of it. I too hope you can come back but only after you get Mom to the beach!
Excellent location, gorgeous views, very clean and well appointed!
We loved relaxing in the hot tub admiring the view after days filled with sightseeing, whitewater rafting and hiking! A short drive into Asheville afforded us access to fabulous restaurants. Curate was awesome! We had a great time combing through the Antique Tobacco Barn too!
After Among the Clouds you find two of my favorites... Curate and The Tobacco Barn! So happy you had such a great time! Shelly
