About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Looking for a little authenticity in your life? Busbee Cabin's two covered porches with rocking chairs-and a hot tub!- invite you to stay a while and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, all within a few minutes of downtown Asheville!

Perfect for a quiet getaway weekend and serving as a great home base for Western North Carolina adventures, Busbee Cabin seems to simplify things with its feel of an old-fashioned Appalachian home. But don't let the rustic image fool you-this comfortable cabin is equipped with modern amenities such as wireless internet, satellite TV, and a washer/dryer set.

Gather around the stone hearth in the central living area and watch your favorite shows on the flat screen TV. A large dining table seats up to seven guests, and making home cooked meals for your group is a breeze in the cabin's fully equipped kitchen. Retire to one of the cozy bedrooms, the master featuring an attached full bath, and catch up on your beauty rest! (Bonus: recent renovations have updated the baths with heated floors.)

Imagine waking up to a beautiful day and walking right out your front door and into the forest for a morning hike. Stretch your legs along a lovely path that begins behind the house and wanders through Busbee Cabin's 36-acre wooded estate. Rejuvenate your spirit and refresh your body with a good soak in the bubbly hot tub. Offering all the comforts of home, and more, Busbee Cabin will have you already looking forward to your next stay!

About The Owner

We moved to Asheville in 2000 and built our home on Busbee Mountain. We love living in the mountains and enjoying all that Asheville and the surrounding area has to offer.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2007

Why The Owner chose Asheville Area

We bought this lovely cabin that sits on property adjoining our 35 acres of woodland on Busbee Mountain, where we live. After renovating the cabin, we decided to share this special spot with others through vacation rental.

Relaxing Paradise Minutes Away from Downtown Asheville

  • 5 of 5

We cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay at the Busbee Cabin. The photos look appealing, but it looks even better in person! The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and there are three "living" areas to hang out in--two porches and cozy living room. One porch as a swing and rockers and a gorgeous view of the woods. The other porch has a hot tub that was the perfect gathering spot after long days of fun and adventuring. The peace and serenity of this cabin make it hard to believe that it's only about 10 minutes to the vibrant shopping, dining, and entertainment in downtown Asheville. Checking in and out was a breeze. Seriously, do not hesitate to rent this place as your home away from home in Asheville.

Fantastic Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

I took my kids, their spouse/significant others and a grandchild to Asheville and we spent 3 wonderful days at the Busbee Cabin. It was so comfortable and had everything we needed. And everything was immaculately clean. I loved that we felt like we were tucked away in some remote mountains, but only took about 10 minutes to get to downtown Asheville and was convenient to everyplace we wanted to go.. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful Mountain Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed here for a bachelorette weekend in Asheville. This cabin was perfect! It is a great deal for the price. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the large kitchen table was great for us to gather around for dinner. The large living room has comfy couches and an easy-to-use fire, and the three bedrooms were very spacious for the 6 of us girls. Our favorite part was the front porch--we loved drinking coffee and eating breakfast overlooking the gorgeous azaleas. Liz and Bill are extremely welcoming and helped us with everything we needed. The drive to Asheville is very quick-- 10-12 minutes depending on where you are headed-- and it was a great, secluded spot for us to relax in between activities downtown. We will definitely stay here again!

Asheville Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Christmas at the Busbee Cabin! The cabin was larger than expected. Secluded, yet convenient to Asheville. We were so content to stay at this cabin (between the fireplace, jacuzzi, and porch rocking chairs), we had a difficult time prying ourselves off the property to sightsee! I would love to return in the Spring to see the azaleas bloom. I can't say enough about how at home we felt here. There was even a grocery rewards card to save money when shopping at the local grocery. Liz & Bill dropped off a delicious loaf of bread to us on Christmas, and are truly the jewels in this crown. Thank you for sharing this cabin for an Asheville Christmas these Floridians will cherish forever.

Marcus and family

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional property for the price. The cabin sits just off a seemingly private drive with only two other residences above, i.e., traffic is virtually nonexistent. An extended front porch with hot tub enters to the spacious dining area, a very well appointed kitchen with pantry and side entrance, and living room which leads to the door of the lengthy side porch. The bedrooms are quite comfortable with the master standing out. The trail(s) out back was a treat, might I recommend a map for assurance of those less inclined to hike. Asheville is truly twelve minutes away and the commute is routine after one trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the cabin and one uncontrollable glitch was amended in a timely manner by the hosts. Looking forward to our next stay.

Lovely rental property

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely property and the pictures hardly do the setting or the house justice. Just minutes away from downtown Asheville, this private home/cabin feels way off in the woods, set up on a mountain side, surrounded by flowering trees and walking trails. The house is spacious, very comfortable (including the beds!), clean, with lovely furnishings, an updated, well-equipped kitchen and other thoughtful amenities. The hot tub is a great addition. We stayed here with another adult couple as the azaleas were popping and enjoyed lovely views from the porch rockers. The house could easily accommodate a few more folks.

The property owners are hospitable and informative. The booking process was easy and straightforward. I look forward to staying here again.
