'Wright's Cabin' offers a "one of a kind" Asheville Vacation in a serene, private setting. The cabin was hand-built by Mr. Newton Wright & wife, Lissie in the late 1800's, using trees from the surrounding forest. Their efforts produced this Very charming home, (and property) which has been completely Restored and preserved to perfection...

Husband, wife & 9 children worked their small farm from this 1 bedroom log home. Out-buildings & barns, (from the farm) remain intact & preserved . (Some buildings are not accessible but provide fantastic photos).

The cabin has been featured in local magazines,

national wedding publications, The Fairview Town Crier & The Asheville Citizen Times,

(chosen as Asheville's 'home of the week' July, 2012).

The Cabin features 1 bedroom (downstairs) with queen bed and a 2nd floor loft with 2 double beds.

*NOTE...Loft is up a rustic wood staircase, totally private, but not enclosed with a door. (Loft is the whole 2nd floor). (See photos of loft and living room for clarification).

Antique chandeliers, reclaimed White Pine floors & vintage furnishings provide authenticity... Top of the line double- pane, thermal windows, new kitchen, central a/c, and high speed internet make it comfortably-modern year around.

Absolutely perfect 'romantic retreat' for a couple, a family, or a small group of friends. This cabin sleeps 2-6. Very easy drive to all area attractions... 11 miles (15 minutes) to Asheville & Biltmore House, 15 miles (25 minutes) to Lake Lure & Chimney Rock,

17 miles (25 minutes) to Black Mountain.

Relax on the leather sofa in front of a wood stove fireplace as you enjoy the ambience of this hand- hewn, (solid white oak), log home. Wright's Cabin features a cozy country kitchen & modernized bathroom. The kitchen features granite counter tops & 1940's era crystal chandeliers. Dining nook was hand-made from 1850's Tennessee church pews.

Outside, (WATCH VIDEO), take a stroll along 800+ feet of Trantham Creek, ( The creek can be heard from the entire property). Walk in the adjoining 3 acre field to enjoy a mountain view, or hike the additional 4.5 acre slopes behind the cabin, (our property extends all the way to the next street above). At night, gaze at the stars from the field or toast marshmallows on the outdoor fireplace. There are a few antique out-buildings, including a wagon barn that has been converted into a creek-side entertainment pavilion. There is a historic double crib barn featuring full dove- tail cornering. This bldg provides GREAT photo-ops, (please do not explore it's interior).

A very special, romantic setting. Close to everything...

Asheville, Chimney Rock, Black Mountain & Lake Lure

Wright's Cabin is located very close to the heart of Downtown Asheville, (15 minute drive). Asheville and the surrounding area offers something for everyone, be it dining, music, shopping, golfing, museums, or hiking. This cabin is located just 10 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Enjoy a hike or a refreshing drive to an overlook. Come enjoy this conveniently located historic cabin for a memorable vacation.

About The Owner

We rented the cabin ourselves & bought it later that year. We get there as often as we can. We continue renting it out, to help preserve the cabin, & allow others an opportunity to take in it's History & charm.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why The Owner chose Asheville Area

Asheville is an awesome city! The Cabin is very close to Asheville but, away from the city itself. The Cabin is in the woods/ mountains, with a lot of land. It's Located in a secluded area among very nice homes. Asheville itself is the perfect mix of beautiful nature, modern culture, & amazing restaurants !!

What makes this cabin unique

Historic, hand-carved cabin from 1895 with a creek a huge field & privacy. Less than 15 minutes to Asheville. A great place to REALLY get away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The most charming place I have ever stayed. You can see axe marks from 100 plus years ago made by the couple that built it. The sound of the creek, the huge field are extremely peaceful. The little kitchen with a booth/ nook made from church pews from 1800's, the wood stove, the outdoor fireplace, charm & serenity abound. The sun comes up every day through the forest/ mountain behind the cabin. BRING YOUR CAMERA. Our kids loved it, my freinds loved it. One of the very few vacations I really felt AWAY from work. The family that takes care of the property lives directly across the street & were very kind & helpful. Minutues to downtown asheville, (but you'd vever know it).

How much did my wife & I love this place??? We were so affectd by it's charm, we contacted the owner & asked if she'd sell it. She said yes & we bought it in October 2010. Please enjoy it & take in it's unique history. It's like a time machine to 1895 every time we go...Eric

Cozy Log Cabin on a Fantastic Property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Wright's Cabin with our two young boys (7 and 3), and we had the most fantastic vacation, in no small part due to our accommodations. The cabin was very nice, well maintained, clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped, the washer and dryer was great to have access to, and the beds were comfortable.

The rest of the property could not have been more perfect for our family get-away. The boys loved hopping across the rocks in the creek, playing ball in the open field, climbing up to the tree house in the woods, swinging out front, roasting marshmallows in the outdoor fireplace, walking across the road to feed the horses and watch the baby goats and donkeys play. Honestly, I could not believe how perfect the property was - the boys were in heaven. My oldest son cried the whole way back down to the highway when we had to leave.

Roger was great - kept us stocked in firewood and had great advice and pointers. Eric was easy to work with - seamless process. I cannot say enough about the experience!

Thanks for a great vacation! We'll be back!

Very cozy

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cabin Christmas week and absolutley loved it.

We brought along our two grown sons and our daughter-in-law to be. The cabins location is perfect. We enjoyed introducing them to Asheville, Chimney Rock, The Arboretum, Biltmore, Waynesville and Sierra Nevada Brewery.

We normally stay in town but wanted to get back to cabin rentals. So glad we did!

Roger, the care taker, was wonderful. He and Eric were both easy to work with and eager to make our stay perfect.

The weather was rainy and a tad gloomy, but once inside life was warm and cozy.

Loved the pavilion and want to come back in the Fall to experience the land even more.

Thank you to Roger and his wife for the Christmas tree and lights..and the decorations scattered throughout the cabin. It was all so welcoming.

We will be back!

This cabin is so easy to fall in love with. The renovations to modernize it are seamlessly executed. The property is perfectly maintained and everything was clean and ready at check-in time. Reading the history of the cabin and walking the property help make your stay even more special. Of course, we had perfect weather at the peak of fall leaf season. But we would enjoy a stay there any time. Enjoy your morning coffee on the front porch swing listening to the stream coursing over the rocks.

Just a short drive to all the fun things in the area - Chimney Rock, Asheville, The Blue Ridge Parkway, Lake Lure. Even a day trip to Brevard is easy to manage.

Eric, Thanks for sharing your wonderful property.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin and the entire property is just lovely! We spent 5 nights and wished we could stay even longer. We enjoyed hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway and going into Asheville, but mostly we loved being at the cabin enjoying the tree and porch swings, making dinner, roasting s'mores, and walking around the property with our young daughter. I hope we will be back!

The cabin was such a great retreat. It was in a beautiful setting and we enjoyed our time there after our strenuous days hiking. Very clean and comfortable. Wish we would have had more time just at the cabin to just enjoy its peacefulness. Great location.

True peace

  • 5 of 5

From the ment we pulled into the cabin we knew we were in for a treat! The cabin had been decorated with lights and there was even a xmas tree inside. The size was perfect for us and our small kids. We went through not asheville everyday to eat and even made dinner some nights. The stream was visited everyday by the kids and we explored every inch of the woods! We loved it so much we stayed an extra night. We have already referred friends who will be booking it for our wedding in April. The cabin was supplied with everything you could need including a washer/dryer. Can't wait I to get back! There was even firewood&aboard games!

Eric was awesome as was the cabin keeper. You can definitely feel the history in this cabin and it left us wanting to comeback again!
