Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2-3

Remodeled Kitchenette, new appliances and professionally cleaned.

Driving up the long winding driveway through the woods you will feel a sense of tranquility and connection with the past.

Rustic 120 year old one room cabin with private covered porch, updated with modern amenities. Private Country Retreat on Swan Mountain yet only 15 minutes to downtown Asheville. Uber to enjoy the amazing craft breweries and restaurants.

There are hiking trails and the Lodge is nearby, but this cabin is private enough that after dusk you can slip into the hot tub with or without appropriate attire.

The cabin has a bunk with a full size sleep number bed on the bottom and an extra long twin on the top. The sofa is a Lazy Boy with pull out queen Slumber Comfort air mattress system. When we stay at the cabin we sleep on the queen pull-out and use the memory foam pad from the full size bed for extra comfort.

Hiking trails on property, free wifi and free firewood.

We have five rentals available on this property and it is an ideal location to have reunions and get together with every one staying on property. We do not allow parties or events of any kind with people coming off property.

*We are in a cove where noise travels and to be good neighbors we cannot allow loud music or excessive noise.

*We have limited parking and cannot allow parking on yards where septic tanks and fields could get damaged.

The property supervisor lives on site and is responsible to make sure guests adhere to policies and is available to correct any issues.

Great little cabin.

  • 4 of 5

This little cabin had all we needed. Heat worked great, shower had fantastic water pressure and hot tub was an added bonus. My son loved taking a stroll on the hiking trails situated on property. We would definitely stay again.

A true gem! Best place to stay in Asheville!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time coming to the cabin! It is perfect! The cabin is located at the top of the property so it is very private and it has lots of outdoor space. This small, private and beautiful cabin makes you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere while having a convenient location minutes away from the Blue Ridge parkway, supermarket and downtown Asheville! The cabin is equipped with satellite TV and WiFi and it has a very comfortable interior. You can also disconnect from the world and enjoy lighting a fire (indoors/outdoors) and enjoy the hot tub in the forest. They have a lot of trails where you can take beautiful walks. I came here with my husband, two young kids and dog and we had a great time. It is a true gem and whenever it is available that is where I choose to stay. It does sometimes smell like camp fire because that is one of the amazing things of this place, that you can have a nice cozy fire! But it is very clean, well equipped and cozy place! If you are thinking about booking it, do it! Love this cabin and I hope I can go there again!

A tranquil cabin for a wonderful, quiet weekend

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon and we thoroughly enjoyed the tranquil cabin out in the woods. It was in reasonable distance to shops and a grocery store, but far enough away where we could enjoy ourselves. We loved using the fireplace, but make sure you bring lighter fluid and a starter log from the store, as the first night we were there I had a hard time getting the fire started. We look forward to coming back to this cabin again in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. :) Just a note to future renters. Please do not bring lighter fluid which is not for indoor use. It does emit vapors and could cause an explosion. The small fire starter blocks are available at most grocery stores and work well, or the cabin is in the woods and there is plenty kindling available.

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this cabin. The trails are the property were great and well taken care of and the hot tub was the perfect ending to the day. My boyfriend, dog, and I will definitely stay here again. The location is great and you feel secluded in the cabin. We even saw a rabbit on our first night. Cannot say enough good things about this place and the experience.
