Overview

Asheville Area Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Appalachia at its best. A mountain cabin re-created within the basement (first floor, ground level) of my home for your pleasure. Private entrance(s), covered deck/patio, open deck, great view, very private setting.

The location has an East-West orientation, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great place to sit, relax, and enjoy your favorite beverage.

The cabin is fully self contained. It has its own kitchen, bath with shower (no tub), and a small living/dining area. One bedroom with a king size bed.

Centrally located between I-40 and I-26, on Busbee Mountain, the property borders the Biltmore Estate and blends in with the Blue Ridge Parkway at an elevation of 3,346 feet.

Well behaved pets are more than welcome!

Easy booking online or with the owner using check or credit cards.

About George Stanley

I am retired. I enjoy my two cats, Olly and Geo.

I retired from the Community College System and enjoy meeting people, thus the rental.

I enjoy traveling and finding neat places. I hope I have created one here.

George Stanley purchased this apartment in 2007

Why George Stanley chose Asheville Area

I had a half -finished basement when I purchased the home, which I separated from the house upstairs. I envisioned a downstairs cabin so others could enjoy the beautiful mountains as I do.

What makes this apartment unique

Living on a rural mountain and bordering the Biltmore Estate Property, there is an abundance of wildlife - turkey, deer, pheasants, bear, raccoons, generally all sorts of wildlife. I have pictures of bear in the yard and in close-by trees.

At an elevation of 3,346 feet, the cabin overlooks a huge valley. The valley is often filled with fog, creating a beautiful sunrise at eye-level.

Comfy and Safe

  • 5 of 5

My puppy dog and I enjoyed our stay in George's comfortable apartment. George is a great host, and I felt so safe knowing that he was about. The view from the spacious deck is lovely morning and evening. Perfect spot for morning coffee and listening to birdsong. Lots of wildlife about. The apartment was cozy and clean. I recommend it to anyone who wants to be convenient to Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with our stay at George's cabin! The deck and the living space were perfect. Even though you're staying in a portion of the main house, you feel totally secluded. George was so friendly and gave us great recommendations and provided excellent communication leading up to the stay. We really loved his cats who would stop by for the occasional visit while we watched the sunrises and sunsets on the deck. One thing I noticed after reading reviews is that there is now a hairdryer in the bathroom, so ladies, you need not worry :) If we are back in the area we will be sure to stay here again!

The most wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

We drove in very late and honestly had no memory of what we signed up for in Asheville. This vrbo provided everything we needed and more. We woke up our first morning there to the most breathtaking views. Our only regret is we didn't have more time there. George is very welcoming and even provided us with hiking books to help us navigate where to go during our stay. I wish we had more time there. We most certainly will be back. FYI to the ladies, he does NOT provide a blow dryer, which is hard for my limp air dried hair. Other than that, it's the most perfect rustic cabin.
