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!

Great weekend getaway
The cabin was very clean and comfortable, and perfectly located for our trip. The Blue Ridge parkway is only 10 minutes in one direction, while downtown Asheville is only 15 in the other. I would definitely stay here again.
a quiet retreat
We enjoyed our stay at this peaceful cabin which was well fitted out for all our comfort needs.
great dog-friendly weekend getaway
Really enjoyed the cabin, and my dogs loved the vacation and the new smells on the hiking trails nearby. Only 15-20 minutes from downtown AVL, so it's easy to get to some great food and wine. Thanks for a nice little escape!
Perfect for a quiet time away.
I was very pleased with all aspects of this property, location was secluded but not difficult to reach and the cabin itself is perfect for a couple or a person and their dog. The view, access to the trail, hot tub are all bonuses. I look forward to staying here again.
we had a great time at the cabin, tammy is very responsive to any questions you may have. enjoyed the hot tub & hiking at the cabin, close enough to drive into Asheville and to the Biltmore - you get the best of both worlds.
Beautiful hidden getaway
The cabin is absolutely perfect! It’s a hidden gem with woods surrounding you. On Friday we went to Biltmore, Saturday we hiked and relaxed while listening to the rain. It was a wonderful getaway and we would definitely stay here again!
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.
