Asheville Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 CabinSleeps 1-12,4-B.R. 3-Master king bed,1Queen,5-Bath rooms Hot Tub, Pet OK,

Welcome to The Island in the Sky! Ashevilles #1 Secluded Mountain Top Vacation Getaway! , located at the very top of the mountain 1000 feet above Asheville, featuring 30 mile 360 degree views, just minutes from downtown Asheville,outdoor hot tub, master bath jacuzzi, pet friendly. Incredible hiking right out your door, (we own the entire top of the mountain), views that include Mount Mitchell.

You will appreciate the quiet natural surroundings that include fabulous mountain-fresh air, spectacular sunrises and sunsets, native wildlife and trails for hiking to your heart’s content. A four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicle (such as a Subaru) will have no difficulty driving to the top, but two wheel drive vehicles will need to park at the lower parking area and guests will be driven to their lodging by the owners.

The Island in the Sky is located at the top of the mountain but it takes less than 20 minutes to get to Asheville and 25 minutes to Biltmore Estate.

We are dog lovers and welcome any well behaved dog. For you photography folks, take in the natural surroundings along with the wildlife and our free roaming pet, Bert the Emu, who has lived here for the past 10 years. Relax in the mountain air in the cool evenings and have a bonfire, re-live your childhood, play horseshoes, enjoy our tree swings, play games, and have a cookout in a secluded area chock full of nature. Awake to the sounds of the mountains and nothing else! Come and recharge yourself away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Return to nature for the weekend, the week, or longer, at The Island in the Sky.

During the daytime, take a nature hike on miles of beautiful mountain trails that begin right out your door, and stroll along with Bert the Emu, take plenty of pictures of the surroundings because you are sure not to want to leave this paradise.

Bring a mat and practice your Yoga in complete solitude. For you early morning risers, look down the mountain and check out the morning cloud cover. Eat breakfast on the patio and then go to downtown and enjoy all that Asheville has to offer including the world famous Biltmore Estate & Winery, The Grove Park Inn, downtown shopping, that includes arts and crafts, furniture, antiques, and the finest dining in all of North Carolina. Go to downtown Weaverville – a small town with a big heart where people say hello and will make you feel welcome. While you are there, stop and enjoy Blue Mountain Pizza, and the famous Well-Bred Bakery and Café – where you will see the Mountain Éclair and other bakery items that will leave you astonished and wanting more.

Check out the Navitat Zip Line Canopy adventure for a heart pumping experience. Just down the road is the French Broad Rafting Expedition with Kayaking, tubing, white water rafting, with a professional tour guide by USA Rafting Company. During the winter months, enjoy a bonfire at night and/or visit the Wolf Laurel Ski Resort for mountain skiing, snow boarding and snow tubing, located just twelve miles away at exit 3 off I-26 . Visit nearby Mount Mitchell the highest mountain east of the Mississippi, drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway with its' spectacular views. There are many beautiful waterfalls to be seen nearby, Grandfather Mountain is spectacular along with Linville Caverns not far away.

At the end of the day, see a unique and wonderful sunset at The Island in the Sky. Take in the thirty mile views all around. Sleep well at 3,400 feet with mountain air that will let you sleep like you never did before. Book a visit today. You’ll be glad you did.

This is the fulfillment of their life long dream to live in a secluded mountain top property but still be close to Asheville. Bob has developed property as a site contractor most of his adult life and enjoys the opportunity to work with his own land creating walking trails and exposing the spectacular views. Melissa is a nurse working locally and has been in charge of decorating.

What a wonderful and refreshing week on the mountaintop!

  • 5 of 5
The accommodations were just as listed and most comfortable, clean and inviting. The views were absolutely amazing and the peace and quiet such a welcomed change from normal routines.

Bob and Melissa are such warm and helpful hosts, and Otis, Bert, Rocky and Theodore (the Beagle, emu, Rottweiler and pig) add such great character. Since we do not have four wheel drive Bob had to make numerous trips up and down to the parking area including one late night as we had to pick up our daughter and son-in-law at the airport at 10 pm. He was so gracious to accommodate us.

If you are looking for a place away from the hustle and bustle of the normal tourist areas but still close enough to be in town for dinner each night this is your spot! If you come to the mountains for the natural beauty as well as the night life you will not go wrong staying at Wilderness retreat and like us you may not want to ever leave. Definitely a 5 star place in our minds!

Absolutely Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5
This cabin was absolutely gorgeous! I loved waking up in the morning to the sunrise over the mountain, and falling asleep with the windows open. Their dogs (and pig!) are so well mannered and super sweet, and is easy to feel right at home your first night. However, you will definitely need a 4WD vehicle if you don't want to rely on Bob driving you up and down, but he is gracious to do it every time if you don't. I'm sure we will be back to enjoy everything Asheville has to offer!

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We were in Ashville for a dog show and decided to make it a extended vacation since we found a cabin that would allow our dogs to come with us. Bob and Melissa could not have been more friendly and accommodating! The cabin was wonderful, and the views breathtaking. Our puppy loved playing with their puppies, so everyone had a great time. The drive up to the cabin was fun to say the least and Bob was a great source for things to do in the area. We will most certainly be back to stay again! Thank you Bob and Melissa!

Great view, place and great host!

  • 4 of 5
The host Bob was very sweet, and he drove us to where we parked our cars at the bottom of the hill (we didn't have 4-wheel drive, and it could get tricky to get up to the cabin) when we needed to, and was very hospitable. The place was great, and the views were amazing.
