About The Owner

Sikes (property owner) had the land where our cabins were built in 2008, just as our first daughter arrived, Caleigh. We knew that we wanted the cabins to reflect the vernacular of the original cabin that stood on this property until it burnt down in the 1990's. In 1998, Sikes began to plan The Village of Cheshire. His vision of a new urbanist neighborhood was inspired by architectural studies in Oxford, England and a Miami-based firm DPZ's new-urbanist projects all over the world. The idea of residents and guests being able to enjoy a walkable neighborhood where uniquely built Arts & Crafts homes, free spaces, and natural architectural elements of stone, rod iron and real wood accents was appealing to him. Please come stay on private trail where you can hear Camp Branch Creek running and see mountain views of the Seven Sisters Range!

Cardinal's Cove and Wren's Den ~ Perfect combination!

Cardinal's Cove and Wren's Den ~ Perfect combination!
  • 5 of 5
We rented these two side-by-side cabins ~ one for our four adult children, the other for the two of us, over Christmas week. India (owner) could not have done more to arrange the perfect accommodations for our family, even with her little toddlers and one on the way!
We spent most of our time in the larger Cardinal's Cove, cooked, ate and played Wii, watched movies, played games by the fire. Washer/dryer downstairs was a nice bonus. Parking right at the foot of the cabins.
Coffee on the porches in the mornings, scotch at night, overlooking the creek and woods. Great trails to walk, creekside meadow to take your dog for a spin, all right out your front door. Quaint, fun village two minutes down the road with fun shops, famous old town bar, mom and pop bookstore and wonderful pizza place. Gas station and supermarket even closer had everything we needed, including wood for those welcoming fireplaces.
Beds were soooo comfy, and decor beautifully done. Normal Rockwell feel. The Wren's Den was ideal for afternoon naps or reading a book ~ or if you just wanted to get away from the bunch in Cardinal's Cove for a while.
Asheville is 30 minutes away for bigger shops if that's your thing. We ventured out to the Biltmore Estate for the Christmas tour and it was unbelievably beautiful and historic. The main floor is literally palatial. You can almost feel the royalty's presence. The detail, artwork, wood, drapes and furnishings, chandeliers everywhere, all preserved in their originally intended state, but recently renovated. Choirs, flowers, candelabras throughout the winding halls and stairways. A basement of wine cellars, rooms just for lace-making, food preparation, maid's quarters, and a gigantic pool that must be seen to be believed. Don't miss it.
This place just makes you want to stay forever. Beautiful, relaxing, and the best owner's we've ever found. We will definitely be back. Thank you for everything!

Everything a cabin retreat in the mountains should be

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Wren's Den, like some of the other cabins, nestled among Rhododendron and perched above a rushing mountain brook. Styles, natural surroundings, Cheshire Village, with its ambiance as an insulated, upscale, mountain community, combine to make it all worth the price of admission (and a reasonable alternative to owning your own cabin). India and Sykes were extraordinary in response to any concerns.

Six stars (and counting)

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely love this place! When you are staying at the Blue Jay's Perch you are overlooking the Blue Ridge mountains and feel a great sense of privacy. So it is remarkable to be within walking distance of a first class restaurant, cafe, wine and coffee bar plus an upscale market in Cheshire Village itself. While the Blue Jay's Perch is one of six of the so called "tree houses," it is a beautifully crafted, decorated and appointed timber frame style cabin. The kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures are all top notch and modern, but when you sit in one of the rocking chairs next to the fireplace, you may find a cozy blanket that could well be handmade. While technically being a one room cabin with a loft, having the kitchen, sitting area and king sized bed all within view of the cozy fireplace makes it the perfect getaway for a couple or an individual. All this within a mile of the town of Black Mountain and I-40 makes it the perfect destination for some well deserved peace and quiet. This is our second extended stay at Blue Jay's Perch and we have nothing but great memories of Cheshire Village. In fact, we have already made reservations for the Holidays. India and Sikes are exceptional hosts and they have created an exceptional place.

Sisters week

  • 5 of 5
This is the cutest little community! Grocery, coffee shop, restaurants, pool, tennis courts and fitness center all walking distance. The cabins are well maintained and high quality. My sister and I stayed in the woodpeckers hollow with our kids. The cabins are small but have a great lay out. I will definitely go back and stay again.

should be a 2 person rental, not 4

  • 4 of 5
This property should not be advertised as sleeps 4. I have two small children and was told there was a king sleeping space in the loft. First of all, it was completely unsafe to have small children climbing up a steep, inverted ladder. Once in the loft, it was a section sofa that I couldn't figure out how to combine as a king bed. To make matters worse, there was no extra bedding.

I handed pieces of the sectional down to my husband and we were able to make a small twin bed on the floor (think cracks between each piece of sectional which came apart at night). I called the office for bedding and received only sheets. Fortunately my sister lives in Black Mountain so I was able to borrow a down comforter. We slept 2 adults and one child in the king bed and 1 child on the floor.

I would also recommend a sign at parking and a sign indicating where the path is that leads to the cabin. It's very quaint and charming, but you can't see the cabin from the road so we drove around and around looking for it.

Well built, lovely treehouse cabin in great community

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the Blue Jay cabin for an anniversary weekend -- all the cabins are in a row and virtually identical -- in the lovely community of Cheshire Village.

Pros: Very well built, clean cabin with nice/brand new appointments, quiet community, management was very nice and helpful, interesting / unique solid wood furnishings and decor, lots of areas to walk on trails or streets in nicely-landscaped and well-maintained community, two excellent restaurants and a small gourmet food shop just at the foot of the hill, pet-friendly, private deck for relaxing on (the elevation or season was somehow perfect so there were no bugs at all even at dusk), close to Black Mountain and Asheville. The views are more woods than mountains, but it is beautiful. We did not use the fitness center but there is a huge one across the street with an indoor pool that you can access during your stay.

Cons: Our biggest complaint was that the bed -- a lovely king-sized wood frame -- had a mattress that was way too soft and sagged in middle. It really distracted from the quality of the rest of the place. Especially for this price, we expected high-end hotel quality mattresses. I would have given this 5 stars if it had a better mattress. We did not go up in the loft area but the ladder to ascend was very steep/high and there is no safety gate at the top. I wouldn't be comfortable with young children staying up there because a fall would be deadly. There was not much other area for sitting inside other than the king bed itself, which did not matter to us, but for more than a couple it might feel a bit tight. At certain times you could hear the nearby road traffic but the sound of the brook was almost always the only thing you could hear. Also, there is a well-groomed, mulched path you need to take to access the property. It is a bit steep -- I am not sure its handicap accessible and might be tough for an older person with bad knees.

Overall I would definitely recommend it for a stay. The community is just beautiful -- looks like something out of Europe -- it feels so remote once you are there but is extremely convenient to everything you will want to visit.
