Leicester Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

I traveled to the mountains where the eagles made their nests. There I saw the hand of God: I saw creation at its best.......

To lighten your heart, ease your mind, relax your body, renew your spirit and heighten your sense of awareness to the peace and contentment found in the wonderful gifts of nature, there is no better place than the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Great Smoky Mountains, and, as our many visitors know, COUNTRY HAVEN is where to experience it all.

This magical retreat is an authentic log cabin filled with beautiful antiques and many articles handcrafted with care by the owner adding a touch of warmth and charm to every room. For your comfort and pleasure, no detail has been overlooked. The cabin is well appointed to assure a comfortable stay. If you love peace and quiet, you will not be disappointed. This alluring cabin and our smaller cabin 'Tranquility Knoll' are situated on 1 1/2 acres of privately owned land, nestled among rolling hills with majestic mountains in the background. As you relax on the wrap-around covered porch or breakfast on the deck, you will enjoy the scenic view along with the country sounds of chickens,cows, horses and donkeys on the neighboring land. You will be pleasantly surprised when wild turkeys wander by and most amused as you watch buffalo. West Highland cows grazing in the adjacent field. Sitting quietly, you can even hear them munching on the grasses'.Evenings sit around the firepit and roast your marshmellos.

In the open Living Room you can curl up on the comfortable, plush sofas or reclining chair, reading a book while the chef cooks up a storm in the fully equipped kitchen that has everything one could possibly need. The two Bedrooms on the main floor have a full and queen bed with top quality mattresses, sheets, quilts, comforters. Each bedroom has beautiful antique oak dressers, reading lamps, ceiling fans.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow' what a great 4th July weekend. We came up here with our family and friends, and enjoyed the cabin so much. There was plenty of room for 4 adults,4 teens/preteens and infant. We cooked on the grill you provided, sat at the picnic table,played games, watched the kids run around in the yard and roll down the hill-such a lovely space. The buffalo were entertaining, the miniature donkey adorable, the views constantly changing and beautiful. The rooms were so beautifully and thoughtfully appointed, as was the amazing porch. Pillows and blankets on a porch- so luxurious. Oh-and we loved the mountain laurel railings-very cool. Thank you for a great weekend

Well equipped and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit at Country Haven. The home was very clean and well equipped with anything we needed. We had 2 young children with us and they loved being able to play outside in the yard and look at the animals next door. The location was very convenient for visiting downtown Asheville. We would definitely return for another visit.

Late summer mountain trip.

Had a wonderful time. The cabin had everything we needed. It was welcoming and well maintained. Quiet place to kick back after an active day. Near Asheville with easy access to the Parkway.

Awesome stay at Country Haven

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The wrap around porch gives great views of the surrounding mountains, and the buffalo next door were a huge plus. The cabin is roomy enough for a larger group, and everything was there that we needed. A great stay.

Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Country Haven was a. beautifully appointed cabin providing peaceful, exquisite views of the mountains from the wrap around porch! It was our home away from home as we ran in and out to restaurants and the sites of Asheville. The antiques throughout the cabin provided warmth and opportunities for exploration. We loved the desk, dressers, and shaving kit! Plenty of room to spread out and make ourselves comfortable. Owners thought of everything to make our stay comfortable, from salt and pepper to extra pillows and blankets. The house was no more than 30 minutes from area attractions, but provided a quiet alternative to the town. We relaxed in the mornings and evenings watching the neighboring bison graze on the hills. We would go back in a heartbeat!

Amazing view and more!

  • 5 of 5

We are already looking forward to coming back! The cabin is elegant/rustic and is very well-appointed and there were too many pluses to list (extra little things you might forget-- it's there). The view is truly second to none. Comfy beds. Huge porch. Beautiful furniture and overall feel. The owners are super friendly and helpful. Surprisingly close and convenient to Asheville also. Awesome place!

The cabin was no doubt the nicest and cleanest place we've ever stayed!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Asheville for a wedding. My niece who was getting married had sent us some information and pics on different cabins in the area but we didn't see any we really thought we liked. My daughter then checked on some and found this cabin. The pictures were beautiful and when we arrived it was even more beautiful in person. They had anything and everything you could possibly need and more!! It was the cleanest place I've ever seen. The owners are so nice and they take care of the property wonderfully. We will for sure recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet serene getaway. We would love to come back.
