About Sheila Fox

My husband Steve and I built this cabin in the Fall of 2012. We are both from the Asheville area and love the mountains. As travelers ourselves, we built this cabin with you in mind. Taking care to make it a place you and your family will want to come back to again and again. Every season here has something to offer. From the beauty of Spring to the quietness of a Winter snow, there is something here for everyone.

Why Sheila Fox chose Leicester

We built this cabin as a vacation rental because this area of Buncombe County is so beautiful and we wanted to share it with others. We live just 10 minutes away and have lived in our home for 21 years. This area is special because its close to downtown, yet far enough away to enjoy nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay. It was cozy and quiet. We had everything we needed. Thank you.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect vacation for my family! The location was great. It is far enough into the mountains to have the secluded feeling and at the same time only a few minutes to a local grocery store. Asheville is only a 15 minute drive.
My two young kids (two dogs too) loved exploring in the wooded area in front of the cabin. We went during December and even were able to go to a tree farm locally to cut down a fresh tree to take with us.
The cabin was very clean and had everything you could think of available. The owners were very easy to work with and VERY accommodating with our travel plans.
No complaints on our end. We will definitely stay here again if we ever are up this way.
Thank you for everything,
The McGuire's

The perfect getaway with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5
Thanks so much Steve and Sheila for letting us stay in your beautiful log cabin during our families' transition to Asheville! We stayed for 2.5 months and our children and small dog loved it! It's a very cozy cabin in a quiet and stress free environment! The cabin is only 15-20 minutes away from downtown Asheville, so you are close enough to do some shopping, hiking, and sightseeing, and still able to get away to a quiet cabin, nestled back in the woods! The cabin has everything you need! It is the perfect getaway in Asheville. Our family highly recommend the Grey Fox Cabin on your next trip to Asheville!!

Nice place and Nice people.

  • 5 of 5
Our story is unique-we sold our home of 10 years in less than 72 hours! We have 2 Great Danes, 1 tall with only 3 legs and 1 small--along with the 18 year old cat. We thought we had plenty of time to find a place to rent, what we didn't know, is that almost everyone in the Asheville and surrounding areas is, shall we say, gun-shy, about renting to pet owners. Despite the fact that our dogs are better behaved than most humans, during our last hours in our home, we were resorting to even offering money, to find a place to live. Then I found Steve & Sheila on VRBO.com. It was close to our home, considering little time left to move, & similar to the surroundings our animals were used to-hence not to shock the ole' cat & end her days early!
I couldn't have wished for a more selfless act of kindness, as what we received from this couple. We stayed practically the whole month of May; having to buy another home versus renting because we're pet owners. No wonder there are so many animals without homes, we-ourselves, were almost homeless because of the behaviors of others & lack of responsibility.
We can't thank Steve & Sheila enough for the "Pay it Forward". I have always believed in that philosophy & practice it often without return. This was my return Sheila--so back at ya' my friend :)
Beautiful cabin with all the amenities & more-our lives are still spread amongst 3 storage buildings, but we very smoothly made the transition thanks to the kindness of this couple.
Enjoy the cabin just as we did & remember the warm heart & hard work that went into creating it when you sleep there peacefully; just as we did.
Thanks from all of us; Jami, Dave, Zeta, Jack and Max.

Owner's Response: Thank you Jami for the kind review. We were so glad to be able to help. You guys were so nice and took really good care of the cabin. It feels good to know that we, in a small way, made life easier for you guys during a transitional time. We hope you are enjoying your new home.

Amazing Time!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I arrived at the cabin for a long weekend and instantly felt at home! It was a beautilful place with a great location. We were close enough to Asheville and several hiking destinations but still far enough away to feel secluded. We look forward to returning again!!
