About the property

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.

Views, tranquility, value

  • 4 of 5

George was extremely friendly! The cabin is quaint and rustic. Location is fantastic for tourists visiting for Asheville's downtown amenities, but want the peace and tranquility of a mountain cabin. The only noise you're here at night are crickets and the wind. And you can bring your dog. It doesn't get much better than that!

Gorgeous Mountain Views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Georges for the few days surrounding 4th of July. It had plenty of space for two people and two large pups. We enjoyed that it was a short drive to Asheville but felt incredibly secluded. The views from the covered deck were breathtaking. I wouldn't hesitate to book another stay at George's cabin!

We honestly cannot say enough great things about George's place. The views were incredible, the space was perfect, and George was a gracious and wonderful host. We wish we had a longer trip and more time to talk to him and explore his beautiful space some more!

We loved every minute of our vacation in this beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is exactly as it is presented here on VRBO. George was the perfect host and thought of everything we needed. We had some rainy days, and the fireplace made it warm and toasty. The view from the deck is amazing. The location is perfect for a visit. We were close to town, but the cabin has a very rural feel. The Blue Ridge Parkway is just around the corner and I 40 gave us great access to the Biltmore and Asheville. We enjoyed our week, but by far our favorite thing was hanging out at the cabin and enjoying the nature that surrounded us. I would give it more than a five if that was possible. We can't wait to return!!!
