About Tammy Capps
Tammy is from North Carolina and has directed non-profit youth programs and a local AmeriCorps program. Both Carmen and Tammy work to be good stewards of the land, these mountains and our mother earth: growing our own fruits and vegetables, preserving them for the winter, recycling and composting all garbage,trying to reuse instead of buying new when possible. Efforts are always made to buy local and American made products. After a great deal of planning and hard work, Carmen and Tammy are excited to invite you for a luxurious, romantic stay in our new cabin!
Tammy Capps purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Tammy Capps chose Candler
Tammy and her ex-partner, Carmen planned and built this cabin with their own two hands, while continuing to work full-time. It took two years! Starting with the goal of building a cabin with a small carbon footprint and utilizing green building techniques the two women started the project. WOW, what a project! A local builder got us off to an amazing start. With lots and lots of hard work and the loving support of our families the cabin was completed in August, 2012. Why the property? Tammy spent most of her childhood in this area and fell in love with the beauty and majesty of these mountains in the Pisgah National Forest at an early age. When looking to move back to the area and purchase a home in 1991, she would only look at homes in the Candler/Upper Hominy area believing this to be the most beautiful community in the Asheville area. Twenty years ago Tammy began to clear land and landscape the 4-acre property. The project was worth it, as it is now a mountain oasis beyond belief.
What makes this Cabin unique
The cabin provides all of the modern comforts in a peaceful wooded setting at the base of Mt. Pisgah. The fall and winter views of the mountain through the large glass windows are spectacular. The wooded canopy of oaks, poplar and maple cover the mountain view during the summer months, and provide cool shade for relaxing outside on the deck or patio. The cabin was built so that passive solar would assist the heating and cooling. In addition, NC made eco panels, rostra block and other sustainable products were used as our building materials making it very well insulated, so it will use very little energy. The tankless water heater and radiant floor heat are also eco-friendly ways to conserve energy while allowing our guests to try out these new 'green' products out for themselves. The 100 year old oak barnwood posts and inside trim throughout the cabin took several months to pull rusted nails, plane and refinish. The wood was purchased in Candler for $100. The cabin is centrally located to so many diverse day-trip activities. There is something for everyone here!

Gorgeous, clean , comfortable. This cabin has exactly what we needed. Naps in the hammock, hot tub while the snow fell, hiking trail access, fire pit, super comfortable bed and furniture. Owner was very helpful when we needed it. Highly recommended!!
Nice cabin, steep driveway
The cabin was nice, very clean with a great view. Unfortunately the driveway was extremely steep. It was recommended by the owner to back down to park. It may be a little difficult for a car, we were in a Jeep. I probably would not have booked this particular cabin if certain things been in the description. Such as the driveway being steep, and no cellphone service for 5 miles out. It really is a nice cabin just a terrible driveway.
I am so glad that you and ejoyed your stay at the cabin! The driveway is at an incline, but cars without four-wheel-drive make it up and down just fine. You can also park at the top of the drive and walk the extra 40 feet to the parking area. There is a land line with unlimited long distance at the cabin. With the new cell tower in the area most Cell phone carriers are working at the cabin now. There’s also wireless Internet so you can hook up to your hotspot on your phone. We are in the process of getting cable run up the mountain and we should have full services available very soon. Hopefully you’ll be able to make it to the mountains again soon. Thank you so much, Tammy
Great place to get away!
The cabin is beautiful and has everything you need to get away for a few days. We went in early January and although there are other cabins nearby they were all empty and it was extremely quiet. Close to lots of great hiking and other outdoor activities.
Quick getaway for us for our anniversary. Beautiful cabin with everything that you could need. Tammy was very informative, helpful, and a great communicators. Instructions on the cabin were very clear. Convenient to Asheville if you want to return to civilization for delicious food.We wish we could have stayed longer. We can’t wait to go back!
This was the best getaway Ive taken, the place was so perfect, clean and just overall amazing.
The property was clean, the directions and check in and out process was seamless. We had everything we needed plus some. I cant wait to book again next year. Tammy was amazing at communicating with us on anything we needed. Recommend this cabin to everyone.
