Nestled in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, just beneath majestic Mount Pisgah, you will find Mountain Laurel Cabin. Even though you are just minutes from downtown Asheville, when you drive up the paved driveway you feel as if you are miles from civilization. Sitting on 15 acres of some of the most beautiful mountain land around, the cabin is enclosed by towering hardwood trees and native rhododendron, holly, and laurel bushes.
Step up on the covered front porch and relax in one of the comfortable rocking chairs or the old fashioned porch swing. As you enter the cabin, you will be impressed with the beautiful wood floors and spacious cathedral ceiling of the great room, complete with a wood burning fireplace, cozy, comfortable furniture, books, as well as the TV, DVD, and VCR. The fully furnished kitchen and dining area are just off the great room, where there is seating for seven to eight. The master bedroom is also on the main floor, boasting a comfy queen-size bed, TV, and VCR, with the master bath adjoining the bedroom. A large closet is in this bedroom, and houses extra blankets, pillows, and lots of games and puzzles.
Upstairs you will find the sleeping loft, which would be perfect for a family, with its queen-size bed and two twin beds. A full-size bath with shower is also upstairs. How pleasant it is to doze off to sleep at night while gazing at the fire burning in the fireplace! Out the back door, step onto a deck that feels like you are walking into the woods. Sit out on the deck and grill some steaks on the gas grill while listening to the birds and watching the squirrels. Your own private hideaway!
In the basement you will find a washer and dryer and two extra beds if needed, even though the basement is unfinished. The cabin is air-conditioned for the summer and has a heat pump and fireplace for winter. You can even leave the doors open and enjoy the cool, clean mountain air! Come to our little piece of heaven in the wonderful Western North Carolina Mountains, rest, relax, and enjoy!
We stayed in the cabin while doing some recording in nearby Asheville. The cabin was a perfect place to come back to after a long day. It was clean and is located in a very quiet, secluded area. The front porch is a great place to have a cup of coffee and forget your troubles. Every bed was very comfortable.
Be aware there is no cell phone service at the cabin but if you are looking to get away, then it could actually be a blessing!
On my next visit to the Asheville area, I only hope that I can stay there again.
My family spent a long laborday weekend at this cabin. We relaxed in the rockers, walked the road and took some side trips to town and through the surounding mountains. The cabin is in a quiet setting and no one will bother you. I will rent again in the near future. Thanks for allowing us to stay at MOUNTAIN LAUREL CABIN.
Mountain Laurel Cabin is located west of Asheville and is a short 15-20 minute drive from so many of the attractions of the area, including Biltmore House, NC Arboretum, Grove Park Inn, Blue Ridge Parkway, and all the shops and restaurants of Downtown Asheville and Waynesville. The natural beauty of our area makes your trip worthwhile...the mountains, the rivers and streams and the wonderful change of seasons all draw you to Mountain Laurel!
