Overview

Asheville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, sleeps 6

This architect designed split-level cabin, 'Mountain Laurel', is situated on a ridgetop of Hickory Nut Mountain at an elevation of 2900 feet at Gateway Mountain, a gated nature preserve and mountain residential community. The cabin sits on four acres surrounded by a hardwood forest with pastoral valleys and distant mountain views. Quiet surroundings allow the guest to experience the woods and her creatures with no distractions from city and traffic noise. There is a waterfall, a stocked trout pond and 2 lakes in the development.

Conveniently located near Asheville and Black Mountain, Gateway Mountain is an easy drive just 7 miles off I40, which situates you midway between the city of Asheville and the Biltmore and, 15 miles from the resort town of Black Mountain with its quaint antique and gift shops and good selection of restaurants.

'Mountain Laurel' provides a serene environment for a 'get away from it all' experience.

Winter activities: There is skiing, snow boarding and tubing available near Boone NC.

Christmas at the Biltmore is a very special occasion.

Summer activities: July 4th party and fireworks display at Lake Lure. Summer concerts in Black Mountain. The Leaf festival takes place in May and October. Asheville has minor league baseball and the Bele Chere festival, one of the largest outdoor music events in the US.

About Lynne Desterre

Tim and I live in the Tampa area and fell in love with the Asheville area when we visited in 2005.

Lynne Desterre purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Lynne Desterre chose Asheville

Because it's beautiful, quiet and restores peace with every visit.

What makes this cabin unique

The views from the deck are ever changing with the weather and the light - we never get tired of it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Jana,



We really enjoyed your cabin. It was very nice. My husband saw three deer, that was the highlight of his trip. We loved the ceilings and your granite countertops. There was some beautiful detail. It has a very homey feeling. The only thing I might suggest is maybe some blinds or curtains in the downstairs bedroom. Even though this place is very private, you get the feeling that someone could look in on you at anytime. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. David and Khiannon

Absolutely Incredible

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is practically on top of the mountain, so the view from the back deck is stunning. We woke up every morning and had coffee in the upstairs den, while enjoying the beautiful view. It is located near the gorgeous little mountain town of Black Mountain and is only a 35 minute drive from downtown Asheville. The cabin itself is a beautiful home, and kept very neat and clean, with all of the creature comforts you would expect. We are already planning a return trip for next year.

Truly amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this cabin justice; the views are just incredible! The cabin is clean and very quiet, and we had no other needs or requests. Thank you for opening your home to us so that we could have this experience.

Note to travelers: we are very glad that we drove an SUV and that there was no snow or slick rain – otherwise, we are afraid that we may not have made it up the mountain.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post comments. We are glad you enjoyed the property. Some guests find the drive up daunting but all roads are paved and unless there is snow or ice on the roads, SUVs and 4 wheel drive vehicles are not necessary. I have a Toyota Solara and I have never had an issue. Please consider another visit in the spring or fall - so beautiful!

A perfect secluded hideaway with a perfect scenic view.

  • 5 of 5

I took my wife Asheville for a surprise weekend getaway and booked this cabin hoping for the best...my expectations were surpassed by far. The drive is a quicker-than-you think jaunt from downtown, and perfectly nestled atop a spectacular mountain view. The correspondence with the owner were quick and easy, giving a sense of ease when booking. The rooms are spacious and decorated in such a quaint and enjoyable manner. What an amazing place! Highly recommended and already planning our return visit. Cheers!

Mountain Laurel

  • 5 of 5

My father and I just stayed at this property. Lynne is very easy to communicate with and the instructions to get into the home are perfect! The view is much prettier than the photos indicate. The home was very clean and Lynne has extras of everything you could need available. The kitchen has every appliance and utensil you need. It was an easy and short ride to the Biltmore Estate, which is one of the activities we went to that area to see. It is quite high up the mountain and the drive at night was a little scary. But I could see in the morning there was nothing to fear! Thanks so much Lynne!

Our Biltmore trip

  • 5 of 5

We came up to Asheville from Charlotte to see the Biltmore in all it's Christmas glory. While the Biltmore was great, the highlight of the trip was waking up to the views off the deck. Beautiful views all around from a very well kept home. Everything we needed for our meals were there. All was clean and comfortable. The owners were extrememly easy to work with, even with short notice. With Asheville not far away and Black Mountain even closer, we would most certainly rent again. Thank you very much for a wonderful retreat.

Beautiful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Laurel is a very comfortable house, located off by itself in the woods with gorgeous views of the mountains. The kitchen was well equipped and stocked and we did not want for anything. There's a gorgeous waterfall in the subdivision that's definitely worth a visit and that's well marked on the map given to us by the owners.
