RUSTIC CABIN, APPALACHIAN ELEGANCE, RURAL BUT CLOSE

Asheville Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Appalachia at its best. A mountain cabin re-created within the basement (first floor, ground level) of my home for your pleasure. Private entrance(s), covered deck/patio, open deck, great view, very private setting.

The location has an East-West orientation, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great place to sit, relax, and enjoy your favorite beverage.

The cabin is fully self contained. It has its own kitchen, bath with shower (no tub), and a small living/dining area. One bedroom with a king size bed.

Centrally located between I-40 and I-26, on Busbee Mountain, the property borders the Biltmore Estate and blends in with the Blue Ridge Parkway at an elevation of 3,346 feet.

Well behaved pets are more than welcome!

I would like to thank Thomas Hardesty of Illinois for the interior pictures of the cabin. Tom is a repeat guest and enjoys photography.

I am retired. I enjoy my two cats, Olly and Geo.

I retired from the Community College System and enjoy meeting people, thus the rental.

I enjoy traveling and finding neat places. I hope I have created one here.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007

I had a half -finished basement when I purchased the home, which I separated from the house upstairs. I envisioned a downstairs cabin so others could enjoy the beautiful mountains as I do.

Living on a rural mountain and bordering the Biltmore Estate Property, there is an abundance of wildlife - turkey, deer, pheasants, bear, raccoons, generally all sorts of wildlife. I have pictures of bear in the yard and in close-by trees.

At an elevation of 3,346 feet, the cabin overlooks a huge valley. The valley is often filled with fog, creating a beautiful sunrise at eye-level.

I loved my stay here! The cabin was cozy and cute! It was perfect for my visit to Asheville! George is very accommodating and friendly. I felt very safe and secure! We even brought our kitty who loved hanging out on the porch. Every one had a great time! Will definitely be back!

Unbelievable in every aspect

Photos just can't do George's place justice; one has to see it to believe it. On the top of one of the Mountain ridges, backing up to the Biltmore Estate below, the 360 degree view is simply fantastic. Throw in a host that treats you like family, but lets you enjoy the solitude, is just the icing on the cake. The suite is so well decorated, with all the conveniences one needs that if you want to, just pick up your supplies before hand and spend a few days without leaving the mountain. Looking forward to our next stay with George. We'll never stay anywhere else when in Asheville. Thanks George!!!

The views from the top of Busbee Mountain are incredible! We enjoyed our three-day stay in this cosy cabin. The owner was very accommodating to our change in travel plans and saw to it that we arrived safely despite the ice on the road. The apartment is well-maintained and the bed was very comfortable.

Cozy cabin in the mountains

I stopped here on my way back to Chicago from Florida to spend a couple of days photographing and exploring the Asheville area. George has thought of everything to create a cozy cabin experience. The sunrises were spectacular both mornings, and despite winter's cold and snow, the experience was wonderful and met all my expectations. George's cabin is very comfortable and convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway and the many hiking trails and sightseeing spots around the area. I especially liked the peace and quiet of the mountain without being too remote. I've already booked a return with my wife this spring. Thanks George, for making my visit a memorable one.
