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.

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at George's cabin for our honeymoon, and were SO happy with it! It was clean and pretty and homey inside, and George was extremely helpful and kind. We cooked a lot in the cabin, and George even graciously came down once to help us re-light the pilot on the gas stove. :) We really enjoyed how close the cabin was to Asheville, and made quite a few trips to coffee shops and stores in downtown Asheville, as well as walking the River Arts District. And a nice grocery store (Ingles) was very close by as well. We also made the 45-min trip to Chimney rock, and another to hike Mt. Pisgah. Both were so worth it! We really enjoyed the beautiful views off the front porch also. Be prepared though for some hairpin turns on the road leading up to the cabin! But it's worth the views. :) Additionally, we changed our plans and left a night early and George refunded us, which was unexpected and extremely kind. Overall, we were so happy and would definitely return!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had a wedding to attend on Sat. in Asheville so we made a weekend out of it with our dogs and had a great time relaxing at the cabin & hiking at Chimney Rock. The views from the room are beautiful and it was a perfect space for my husband and I.

Perfect Anniversary!

  • 5 of 5
The view was amazing and the cabin was perfect for my husband and I. It's located on the side of a mountain which was the most exciting thing in the world to me considering this was my first time ever even seeing one! You can bet that we will be coming back again and next time bringing our little girl. Truely one of the best vacations I've had in a long time.

Wonderful View

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The view off the deck was fabulous.
Bed was comfortable. If you are average size, you may just fit in the shower.

What a beautiful place in the clouds! like being on top of the world. Peaceful and quiet, close to nature, a real NC mountain experience. George thought of everything, from coffee to towels. Wonderful covered porch. Close to all activities. A friendly place.

Best Vacation Cabin Ever!

  • 5 of 5
My experience at George's cabin extremely pleasant! I'd even throw in 5 additional stars for the host! George is thoughtful and was genuinely concerned about our comfort after a previous guest mentioned dissatisfaction with the condition of the cabin. This cabin is pleasantly clean and comfortable while offering sufficient space for personal items. George also provides necessary items for cooking and entertainment.

I was also very pleased that I was able to bring my dog and let him stay in the cabin. He loved sitting on the deck enjoying the view!

The location of the cabin is very ideal and central. We explored several favorite tourist spots, and did not have to spend a lot of time in the car.

I hope to return to the cabin and plan on adding it to my regular vacation spots.

Best guest service! Best views! Super clean space!
