Why Jonathan Avila chose Marion

The Backyard Bunkie was built as it's name suggest is in our backyard. Why would you want to come and stay in our backyard? For the view!

After moving from the Central Coast of California to the sleepy town of Marion, NC, we realized what we missed most about California (besides the Mexican food) were the sunsets. So when we pulled up our driveway for the first time to look out and see not only the horizon but one of the most breathtaking views in Western North Carolina we knew despite the decrepit one hundred year old house, this would be our home. After completely rehabbing the old house on the hill we decided we should share this captivating view with others.

Best Place near Asheville to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved Bitty. It is so beautifully done. It felt like our home away from home. Very quiet and relaxing with amazing views. Just a short drive to Asheville and many other things to do. We will be returning as much as possible to stay in Bitty.
