Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4

Thank you for your interest in Good Intentions! We would love for you to stay in our humble cabin. However, we also value your time and want to help you make an informed decision regarding your stay in Asheville. With that in mind, here are our thoughts on who is probably most interested in our cabin:

-Smaller groups (2-4) who want the ambiance of a cabin at a fraction of the cost.

-Groups who want a country feel while maintaining close proximity to downtown Asheville (about 6 miles).

-Groups who want to enjoy beautiful views from a spacious deck.

-Groups looking to check out nearby attractions such as Chimney Rock Park, Biltmore Estate & Winery, Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina Arboretum, Great Smokey Mountain National Park, and Grandfather Mountain.

-Adventure seekers looking for a headquarters to crash in after a long day enjoying all the great hiking, biking, canoeing, kayaking, and other things Asheville has to offer.

*Please scroll down to the bottom to see who may be looking for something else

And, to help you with your search, here is our opinion on who might be looking for something different:

- Larger groups (more than 4). We do offer a full-sized futon and two twin-sized cots, but realize that may be inadequate for people with certain sleeping requirements. Also, more than 4 people may difficulty sharing the 2 full bathrooms. Please check out another nearby rental if you have a larger party:

- Those who need a large kitchen for meal preparation. We offer a simple, clean kitchen to meet the basic needs of travelers looking to experience the best of Asheville cuisine.

- Those looking for long-term rentals. We only offer up to 4 weeks stay at a time (please see 'Rates').

- Those looking for an all-inclusive resort experience. Our cabin is a 'real' house in a residential community. There is no slope-side skiing or 24 hour gym onsite. Relaxing is the main activity!

- Groups with pets. We do not allow pets.

Cabin was very comfortable, surfaces were clean with a great view.

  • 3 of 5

However, we have a few suggestions:

1. Need to attach #5 sign to front porch, visible from road. Delivered box on front porch

was addressed to #4; we thought at wrong location, wasted 30 min. searching for

another house.

2. Better directions for locating lock-box with front door key.

3. More meal service: 6 wine glasses (not just 3), 6 dinner plates (not 4, 1 w/chip), 6 salad

plates (not 3, 1 w/chip), plus better quality plastic water glasses.

4. Shower curtain hems need to be soaked in bleach solution to remove mold & smell

(or purchase new ones!)

5. New location for canvas yard equipment (that smelled) and two backpacks besides storing

in the guest closet.

6. No trash barrel was found at bottom of hill to deposit our trash (hope we do not receive

a fine for using local business dumpster.)

Pretty Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Pretty place; enjoyed that there were two different levels of bedrooms. Only one thing missing was an iron and board!

ok

  • 3 of 5

The place was pretty nice. We had a very hard time communicating with the owner as I am a talker and he is a texter. The clothes dryer did not dry and gave off a burning smell. He did have someone there within 1.5 hrs. That is a great job. There was quite a bit of mold on the shower curtain which was unexpected. The big problem we had was there were six waters in the fridge when we arrived and all six had been used, refilled and also were past expiration. (this I know for sure because my wife could not open any of them. The caps were on so tight she could not open them and gave them to me to open.) When I opened the first one I thought that's strange, no little tab breakage sound. When I checked the rest-same thing. This is really disgusting and bad. Please advise on what we should do. Thank you

Okay if you are looking for a home base and not to just stay to relax.

  • 3 of 5

Well done cabin but location and views were not what we expected. Dogs, chicken and cows woke us up early. Dog barked at night too.
