Fairview Cabin Rental Photos and Description

A Large Highly Secluded Oasis Less Than 10 Miles From Downtown Asheville!

The Roost is a 4 bedroom, 3 bath log cabin that lies at the end of a long, extended driveway. It provides the peaceful serenity desired by folks who want to get away, but also be just a short distance from downtown Asheville (less than 10 miles!) The Roost lies on 4 acres of land, and has hiking trails that run throughout the property, which includes a small stream in certain areas, several types of fruit trees, and a huge wrap around deck for outdoor entertaining. The Roost can accommodate up to 15 guests (please read on to get more info about the number of beds, and sleeping accommodations), and boasts a huge 8-person hot tub, pool and poker table, fire pit, a 65' HDTV w/home theatre system, and so much more!

The downstairs provides entertainment for the entire family. There is a pool and antique poker table with chips and cards. The 65' HDTV has Direct TV, a blue ray DVD player and a home theatre system. The couch is extremely large and incredibly comfy, so the whole family can enjoy a cinematic experience together in style. There is also a separate checkers and chess table, as well as a surplus of board games. Additionally, there is a separate full size bed that functions as another sitting/sleeping/relaxing area.

Three of the four bedrooms (2 kings and a queen) and 2 full baths are on the main floor, while the kids room with 2 sets of bunk beds (a twin and full bunk) is downstairs. The kids room has a 32' HDTV (w/Direct TV, DVD player and a Wii console), so they'll be entertained for hours! Adults can be on the main floor late, hang in front of the fire, watch TV (there's one in the Armoire next to the fireplace w/Direct TV), and have access to the kitchen etc. without disturbing the kids. The upstairs master and queen bedroom have ceiling fans and direct access to the beautiful wrap around deck. The queen bedroom has an attached bathroom with an incredible jacuzzi tub, so it is in essence another master bedroom. The bathroom is shared with the 3rd bedroom (not attached but right next door), and features a hand made king bed by an Asheville furniture designer. The love seat in front of the fire place opens into a bed, so you can sleep in front of the fire, which is truly a lovely feature. Therefore in all there are 2 Kings, 1 Queen, 3 Fulls, and 3 Twins (1 of the twins being the pullout couch). The Roost accommodates sleeping for 15 if you account for 2 people sharing beds for the Kings, Queen, and Fulls (not twins).

The kitchen is large, and has all the appliances necessary to cook for large groups. There is also a grill outside that is available to guests. Attached to the kitchen is a front loading washer and dryer set, with plenty of detergent and dryer sheets so you can do laundry at anytime. The cabin has all the necessary linens for the beds, and has plenty bath towels, wash clothes etc.

The Roost lies at the end of a very long driveway, so it is quiet and peaceful with absolutely no road noise. There are several hiking trails on the property to explore, as well as a stream to discover on your hike. The landscaping is gorgeous, with several types of fruit trees, flowers, plants etc. There is also a large fire pit with spots for 15 people. There is plenty of parking, including a carport for up to 2 vehicles.

If you're looking for a beautiful and luxurious place that can accommodate a family or large group then look no further. The Roost has everything you need to make your vacation truly one to remember!

About Rich Brownstein

My name is Rich, and I am a 32 year old full time musician. I started piano lessons at the age of 4, and graduated high school from Interlochen Arts Academy. I got my undergraduate degree from NYU where I studied jazz piano and music technology. I grew up right outside of Boston, and although I haven't lived there in nearly 16 years, I'm a die hard Boston sports fan. After graduating NYU I got a job working for the legendary Cafe Wha? (where Jimi Hendrix was discovered, and Bob Dylan played his first shows in NYC) in New York City, where I was responsible for booking talent, marketing the club, customer inquiries, and the head agent for The Cafe Wha? House Band. As the head agent, I was in charge of hiring the band out for weddings, private functions, corporate events etc. If you're ever in NYC, make sure to check them out!

When I was 27, I wanted to pursue my dream of being a touring musician. Myself, and my girlfriend at the time who was the lead singer, convinced the entire band to leave their lives in New York, and move into a house together in Asheville NC. We played over 300 shows together and traveled as far south as Key West, and as far north as Boston.

I love virtually all sports, delicious food, sitting by the fire and reading, and spending time with my family just to name a few.

Rich Brownstein purchased this cabin in 2014

Why Rich Brownstein chose Asheville Area

I sold the condo I bought in Brooklyn in the middle of 2014, and was looking for a great investment property. Originally I was looking at multi unit apartments, duplexes etc. but I quickly realized it wasn't something I was excited about. My realtor, who is now a very good friend of mine, showed me this property, now called The Roost, and I thought, 'wow, this would be an incredible vacation rental!' The other obvious benefit is when it isn't rented, I'd be able to leave my small apartment in Asheville and spend time here. It was a no brainer really. For 2 straight months, myself, girlfriend and a few friends remodeled the entire basement. We ripped up carpets, installed beautiful new floors, painted the whole house (at 3200 sq. ft thats a lot of painting!), and cleaned for what seemed like an eternity. I wanted to make The Roost the ultimate getaway, and since I plan to stay here when it's not rented, I've made every effort to do just that!

What makes this cabin unique

I love The Roost because it is close to downtown Asheville, but has the feeling you're in the middle of nowhere. The extended driveway (probably 1/4 of a mile or more) is shared with only 1 other house, and since The Roost lies at the end of the driveway, no cars other than people you are expecting pass through. The previous owner invested tens of thousands of dollars in landscaping, so the property is full of all types of fruit trees, flowers, and exotic plants. The hiking trails are really enjoyable to walk on, and on a clear night, the stars shine brighter than any place I've been before. The inside of the cabin itself feels very homey, and I loved the idea of entertaining guests, which is easy given its size. The first people to stay at the house were my girlfriends entire family over Christmas (16 to be exact), and it didn't feel cramped at all. The wrap around deck is accessible from the two main bedrooms on the first floor, which is wonderful as well. I looked at dozens of properties, and as soon as I saw this one, I just knew it was the one. I haven't regretted it for a second. It's an incredible home, and wonderful place to lay your head.

Great property, great owner

  • 4 of 5

The property is great. Very well maintained and clean. Owner is very accommodating and easy to communicate with. House has just about everything you need to have a relaxing stay. Hot tub and fire pit are nice amenities. We stayed with two other families and there was enough room for all. If you are looking for a nice house to stay in, then this is definitely one to check out.

Owner's Response: Thank you for reviewing my property. I strive very hard to make this a 5-star rental, and based on your review, it sounds like it is? Just wondering what could be improved to have changed the 4-star review to 5? Thank you very much.

Cozy and relaxing place in the mountains.

  • 5 of 5

Do you need a hassle free getaway? Then look no further. My family and I stayed here for five days and it was amazing. There were activities for all ages such as; exploring the property trails, relaxing in the hot tub, playing cornhole, sitting around a campfire, shooting pool, or just grilling and watching the view from the deck. Asheville is a close drive. There is a food lion grocery store just down the road in case you need to pick some groceries up. The owners could not be any easier to work with. The cabin has great quality amenities and appliances, you won't feel like you're in cheap place. Beds are comfortable along with the massive sectional sofa in the basement. I have no complaints about the "The Roost". We made great memories there.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great stay - the roost has so many amenities! It is a wonderful home, the owners clearly take great care of the house. The kitchen is stocked too! Another bonus is it is so secluded but you can be downtown in a jiffy. Hiking close by too. Everything you need for a wonderful mountain weekend! We will hopefully be back again for another trip next fall!

Great reunion at the Roost!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Roost. We had 8 people and 3 dogs and it worked out perfectly for us. It is in a great location between asheville and Chimney Rock, but it is close enough to both that you can really enjoy yourself without too much driving. We hiked and toured breweries and enjoyed the peaceful mountain setting. The kitchen is fully stocked, the bedrooms are comfortable and the deck is really great place to hang out. Great time.

Phenomenal place for family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed "The Roost" for our holiday family gathering. Two families and grandparents were comfortably accommodated in the very clean and well equipped cabin. It was just far enough off the beaten path to feel like a getaway but close enough to see all the sights in Asheville and the mountains. Rich was very helpful and communicative throughout and definitely recommends to our friends wanting to stay near Asheville, All descriptions and pictures were right on and we are planning now for next year!

Heavenly house in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic experience at this house. We had a family get together there, and it's perfect for a large group like that, very spacious and comfortable. Our kids had the best time - they loved exploring the trails behind the house, making s'mores by the fire pit, the hot tub! Having the bunk bed room all to themselves was fun for them and great for the grown ups too. The house is in a beautiful, quiet area that was just what us city people needed. We had great communication with Rich, he was very accommodating and always responded quickly. We made great memories at The Roost, and would love to be back.

The Roost is nestled in a quite and secluded setting. A perfect getaway that is less than 20 minutes from downtown Asheville, which features incredible restaurants, shopping of all kinds, some of the best craft breweries, and countless music venues. It's also less than 20 miles from Lake Lure and Chimney Rock, which are must dos if you've never experienced them. Take a scenic tour on the Blue Ridge Parkway, or visit The Biltmore Estate, and their incredible gardens. Hiking and waterfalls are plentiful! Close to Pisgah National Forest, and a day trip to the breathtaking Dupont State Park. Take a trip to the River Arts District and experience some of the best pottery, painting, glass blowing etc. of Asheville artists. Don't forget to stop at 12 Bones, Asheville's premier BBQ, but make sure you go between 11:00am-4:00pm Monday-Friday. They are not open for dinner, and are closed on Saturday and Sunday. While in the River Arts District, make sure not to skip The Wedge if you're a beer lover. Without a doubt one of the best craft breweries in the country. Wicked Weed is a no brainer, located right next to The Orange Peel, Asheville's premier music venue. Also make sure to stop at Highland Brewing Company for a tour, and a visit to their tasting room. Additional breweries to stop at are Oscar Blues, the new Sierra Nevada, Hi-Wire, and an Asheville staple, Pisgah Brewing, which features some of the best local bands along with national touring acts in the summertime. Asheville must go to restaurants are The Admiral, Cucina 24, Curate, Marketplace and Corner Kitchen (right by The Biltmore, and a lot of great shopping). Limones is a must for dinner or brunch. Additional brunch options are Sunny Point (be prepared to wait), Biscuit Head (which has quickly become an Asheville staple), and Early Girl. If you're craving hearty Mexican cuisine, stop at Papas and Beer and try their fajitas. Locals swear by Taco Jaliscos in West Asheville. If you love tea, you can't miss The Dobra Tea House, which is located downtown and has a smorgasbord of local and international teas. 5 Walnut Wine Bar has a huge selection of great wines, and also features music from some of Asheville's finest musicians virtually every night of the week. Two activities that don't show up on the tourist radar that are essential are tubing down the French Broad River, and the waterfall at Catawba Falls. Drop your tube in right by The Wedge in The River Arts District, and get out at the Bywater. It takes a bit under two hours, and you'll find yourself at one of the best bars in Asheville. Did you know the French Broad River is one of the oldest rivers in the world, and also one of just a few that flows North? Catawba falls is located off of exit 73 on I-26. Just make it a point to go here. It's truly magnificent. These are just a handful of the wonderful things to discover on your trip to Asheville. Enjoy this beautiful City and everything it has to offer.
