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 Asheville Area

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!

Scenic Pet-Friendly Retreat with Easy Access to Hiking

  • 5 of 5

Have dogs? Like to hike with them? Want to relax in a hot tub or by a fire when you return? This is your place. This cabin is very welcoming, and you and your dogs will instantly feel at home. The bed is comfortable, and the linens and towels are not raggedy like you'll find in some cabins. You'll know instantly that this is a pet-friendly place when you see they've provided a mat for food and water, blankets for your dogs, and slipcovers for the furniture.

In addition, there are bathrobes for the hot tub, which is a nice one. We took several soaks.There are also wine glasses (including plastic ones for the hot tub), as well as all the dishes and pots and pans you'll need. There is hiking trail right beyond the fire pit that leads to the trails in the Pisgah National Forest, where your dogs are welcome. We'll be coming back.

Great getaway cabin.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved the cabin. So cozy and quaint. Loved waking up to the sunshine on the mountains. The only drawback was that the first couple of nights we were fearful of not being able to back down driveway so we did not stay out past dark. I wish there was a better turn around.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the cabin! The mountain is getting ready to explode with the blooms wild azaleas, mountain laurel, and rhododendron. The driveway can be a little tricky if you are not used to a hill. Fortunately, you can park at the top of the drive and walk the 50 feet to the cabin if you are not comfortable pulling all the way down to the cabin. I drive a Honda and pull strait down and back out with ease. Hopefully, you will be able to return soon. Peace Always, Tammy

Exactly what I pictured when I hoped for a mountain vacation and the cabin is exactly as advertised--maybe even better! It was perfect!

Simply charming and relaxing, great location too !

  • 5 of 5

After spending time in Raleigh and Charleston we were looking forward to 3 days in a tranquil location amongst nature - we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The cabin is beautiful with a very romantic feel, the location is stunning and the surrounding countryside and the journey in and the nearby roads are breathtaking. The design of the cabin is charming and lacks nothing, the wifi is great, good kitchen facilities, washing machine and dryer, and the hot tub outside is the icing on the cake. What is amazing is that when we stayed it was touching -8 degrees C and we didn't put the heating on and were never cold in the cabin. We would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend it - our only regret is that we didn't leave Charleston earlier and spend more time here.

Map

Car: necessary

Only 16 miles from downtown Asheville our cabin is located beside the Pisgah National Forest.

Hiking trails are abundant only minutes away on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

March to November you can enjoy breakfast at the Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

A favorite downtown shopping spot in Asheville, Hendersonville, and Waynseville is Mast General Store.

Our favorite restaurants are the Admiral and Curate', you must make reservations early though.
