Overview

About the property

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 4)

Just 10 minutes to downtown Asheville!

Step into a long-ago era as you escape to this 1940's bungalow nestled on a peaceful hillside. Constructed of fieldstone and wood with pine floors and stone fireplace, you can't resist the call of the mountains.

The wrap-around porch invites you to relax as crickets and tree frogs sing their melodious symphony. Snuggle in front of the fireplace. Watch the sun rise over the treetops as you savor a fresh brewed cup of coffee and experience the fresh mountain air.

This 2 bedroom 1 bath picturesque sanctuary is the perfect get-a-way for couples, young families or a friend's retreat. Decorated in soothing earth tones, the comfortable, informal atmosphere creates a tranquil escape from life's daily stress.

Cabin Laurel is a hidden treasure easily accessible to I-26 and Hwy 19/23 & Hwy 25 major travel routes that makes a weekend retreat or week long escape the perfect choice - convenient with mountain tranquility.

About Sharon Tabor

As prior owner of Acorn Cottage Bed & Breakfast in Asheville, NC, for 12 years, you can rest assured your vacation experience will be superb.

I am currently Executive Director of Tourism and have had a diverse background as a Department Store Buyer , non-profit museum directer and restaurant manager.

Sharon Tabor purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Sharon Tabor chose Asheville Area

My favorite place is Asheville where I owned Acorn Cottage B&B. I fell in love with the cozy, unique property that has the best of both worlds: the quiet peacful atmosphere of the mountains, but convenient to town.

It's absolutely amazing how close the house is to everything there is to do in the area, but how quiet it is! You actually feel as if you are miles from town - but you aren't!

What makes this bungalow unique

I love sitting on the porch listing to the tree frogs and crickets at night. During the winter I enjoy curling up in the recliner chair in front of the fire with a good book and glass of wine.

For a marvelous mountain view, a short walk up Breckinridge Pkwy near the house reveals the magic of the area.

I love the diversity of cuisine in the Asheville & Weaverville area less than a 10 minute drive from the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place was like stepping back in time. We couldn't believe how convenient the house was to everything we wanted to do, yet it felt like we we out in the country. It was private, quiet, neat and clean. Just what we wanted.

Super cute, easily accessible, great lot.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! The home is just as described by other reviews -- perfectly humble and everything you'd expect. Great layout with two small common areas, and the bathroom and bedrooms are both larger than expected. Thank you!

Cozy, relaxing, and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the property was fantastic! Our initial plans fell through, so we were looking for somewhere to stay very last minute. I called the property owner, and she promptly returned our call. She was very honest about the amenities and even reduced the rate due to some problems she was facing at the property at the time. Within 15 minutes from speaking with her, she had all of the details ironed out for us. The property was clean, and I felt very relaxed during my time there. The location of the property is convenient to downtown and most areas of Asheville. I would definitely recommend this property!

Wonderfully relaxing stay. Cabin had everything I needed and more.

  • 4 of 5

Great little cabin. Floors a little uneven but it is a very old cabin. Loved sitting on the patio and watching some leaves turn yellow and fall off. I would definitely rent or recommend staying at Cabin Laurel.
