Just what we needed
We were looking for a quiet weekend away for an anniversary / valentines trip and this was the perfect spot. The cabin was cozy and and had a fun atmosphere. The property is nicely maintained and even though there are other rental cabins 50 yards or so away they never felt intrusive. The property manager was very responsive to any questions or concerns.
This very old log cabin (1812) was brought in and reassembled on site in the neighborhood that in the 50s served as faculty housing for historic Black Mountain College. The next house was where Einstein stayed.
When they reconstructed the cabin they installed every modern comfort and decorated with exquisite taste. There were three of us, but four can sleep comfortably in the loft bed and the downstairs futon. Outside temps were cold when we were there, but inside was toasty with central heat AND a fine woodstove (wood provided).
It was also a little chilly for porch-sitting, but we did it anyway. That porch is hard to resist.
And the NEIGHBORHOOD! When most of the houses here were built (I'm assuming in the 50s), they would have been called modernist. Not big and flashy, but very cool. It's like spending the night in an architectural museum. The vegetation is all natural.
I could live here. I would recommend it highly except that I want it to be available when I have the opportunity to go back.
Cabin was incredibly cute but needs to be cleaned better
We really loved the actual architecture of the cabin but the cabin was dirty. There was mouse poop all in the kitchen cabinets along with some old rice. So we didn't use any dishes. The bathroom linens were stained and had holes and badly need to be replaced. The down comforter on the bed had a big 1in tear and feathers came out all night. There were dust balls in the loft bedroom rolling around the floor. Wouldn't stay here again unless there were some improvements to the cleanliness.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We do wish you had let us know during your actual stay so we could have had someone bring you a new comforter & new linens and clean up any issues. We will certainly address this with our cleaning staff to make sure all our future guests enjoy their time at Lake Eden. The previous guests had not mentioned any tear in the comforter and it was obviously unseen by our staff otherwise we would certainly have exchanged it prior to your arrival. The cabin has been a home away from home to many guests over the years and we are proud that so many of our visitors choose to come stay with us again and again. Making sure our guests have a positive experience is of utmost importance.
Surprisely quaint and peaceful location
The cabin is an excellent example of taking what some might have torn down to reclaiming with modern amenities. The location is beautiful and peaceful. It might surprise some to pass a federal penitentiary to get to the beautiful road and entry but it seems to coexist with the local high school. The only thing I'd add is a better mattress on the loft bed and some coffee and waters as most of the vrbo's have done especially with the local roasters. High 5 on adding internet the listing did not show but overall excellent value and my daughter ended up not wanting to leave our quaint cabin!
Awesome cabin! Awesome property!
The cabin is a really cool authentic 1800s log cabin that has been upfitted with modern amenities. It has WiFi, kitchenette, TV/DVD combo, ductless heating/cooling unit and a log burning stove. The property is amazing with lots of room to explore, very dog friendly and very friendly hosts. We met the owner Mr. Pickering and his dog Roxie. He is extremely nice and welcoming. The town of Black Mountain is just a few minutes away and has some cool restaurants, bars and coffee shops. We definitely plan on staying here for our future visits to the Asheville area.
Awesome Little Place
A GREAT time was had by all. Very clean and cozy. It was just what we were looking for. There was even a resident dog "Rusty" who greeted us every morning and evening with his loving presence. He fit right at home on the front porch as we rocked the evening in. Thank you George for the wonderful trip to Asheville. Hope to see you again soon.
The Cabin is nestled in a grove where the historic Black Mountain College once thrived during the '40s and '50s as one of the most important educational and artistic experiments. Buckminster Fuller built the first geodesic dome here on the property and Elbert Einstein taught here. Mt. Mitchell, the highest point east of the Rockies, stands tall in the distance, mountain lakes and streams welcome you, and the beauty and spirit of this place is truly relaxing and magical. While you enjoy a feeling of being far away you have the luxury of being close to so many great experiences... Black Mountain (5 minutes), Asheville (20 min), Blue Ridge Parkway, Biltmore Estate, Cherokee, and outdoor adventures abound (hikes, rafting, mountain biking, climbing, picnics, etc).
