LOCATION: This property is 17 miles from Asheville’s city limits, approximately a 20-25 minute drive to the heart of downtown (rush hour slows you down in the mountains, too). It is easily accessed via Interstate 26 and Highway 197, with no curvy mountain roads to maneuver. There are also several cab companies and Uber drivers that can transport groups to and from downtown.
It is 10 minutes to the charming historic towns of Weaverville and Mars Hill. It’s only a few miles to the Coleman Boundary area of the Pisgah National Forest, 3 miles to Navitat Canopy Adventures (quite possibly the best zipline company in the country), and the French Broad River is nearby: kayaking, rafting, tubing, and fly fishing are offered by several local Outfitters. Bent Creek recreation area in Asheville ranks among the top 10 Mountain Biking sites in the country!
Voted 'Beer City' USA for 4 consecutive years, there is more than the fabulous craft breweries in Asheville. LaZoom Comedy Tours offer family-friendly as well as 'R-rated' adult entertainment, the Blue Ridge Parkway is beautiful any time of year, the Biltmore Estate is the largest privately-owned house in the United States and is open for tours year-round, the Arboretum and Botanical Gardens are lovely, and other recreational options are seemingly endless! Mix in Asheville's cuisine, art, and music... you are not likely to find a quaint vacation destination with so much to offer!

About Paula Taylor
I've been in real estate for what seems my entire life. With parents as Realtors, it's always been a family business. I began appraising in college, investing in rentals at the age of 24, and have been a Property Manager ever since. I fell in love with this house and it's view during my first showing (as a Real Estate Broker)... luckily for me, my clients were not interested! Eight months later, I purchased the home and ~8 acres.
Paula Taylor purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Paula Taylor chose Flat Creek
This property and house leave people in awe... from the initial impression coming up the driveway to the expansive living area leading directly to that 'magnet' of a deck... it has the ideal balance of peace, views, and easy access to downtown and other amenities! It is, undoubtedly, one of the most special properties in the Asheville area! Built in 1986 as a retirement residence with a Swiss Chalet design, there are charming and unique details throughout. The coat closet and pantry lights come on when the doors are opened, skylights and a passive solar design provide a light and bright atmosphere, the ceiling soars to 18' in the Living room, and all rooms of ample size. The kitchen cabinets were hand-made by the original owner and feature a 'Small Appliance Garage': simply open the door with the brass 'Coffee Maker' label, and pull out the trolley upon which sits the coffee maker! The spice drawer might amuse you, or inspire you... the dumbwaiter is non-functioning, but still fun to check out! How often do you see a modern version of Thomas Jefferson's invention? Multiple indoor and outdoor 'living areas' make this home an ideal get-away for intimate escapes, family reunions, or for your visitors who prefer a home rather than a hotel. Spacious and comfortable, there are options to relax in/on the... Den, Living Room, Kitchen with a 'pass-through' to the Dining Room, the Deck, a shady pergola, and 8 acres upon which to roam!
What makes this Cabin unique
I've made improvements over the years, most of them cosmetic as well as the less exciting upgrades to the major systems (heat/AC, roof, electrical, septic, etc.). Improvements are made every year to modernize the Chalet while maintaining its original charm and character. The house is fully functional and very comfortable. It has come a long way from the fixer-upper condition it was when I purchased it, and I continue to enjoy the process of converting it into my vision and having the ability to share this special property with guests!

Great property, we'll kept, reasonable house rules, easy drive about 25 min to Asheville.
Great place. Totally Hassel free. It's got all the amenities you need or want and its an easy drive into Asheville.
Weekend with friends.
Our second annual stay. Great house, views, location and hot tub.
Well equipped for a crowd to enjoy a week together with plenty of space for adults, kids and dogs!
We arrived to this spacius home and were overwhelmed as we checked out all of the living spaces. Plenty of nooks for adults, kids and dogs. We were all able to gather for meals each evening around the dining room table , play ping pong and watch the games or movies in the downstairs game room while the toddlers had down time in the upstairs den watching cartoons. 2 we'll equipped kitchens were useful as we prepared meals and stored supplies.
Anything we needed was taken care of by the caretaker who responded and helped us with questions.
Afternoons were spent playing around the acres of grassy pastures with the dogs and children. Soaking in the hot tub to watch the sunset was a treat for all!
We are ready to return in 2018 and are already making plans for more activities now that we know what to expect in this wonderful welcoming home away from home!
Our family absolutely loved this location for our fall mountain retreat! The house met all our needs to accommodate the six adults and three children. The view was spectacular and the roaming space was excellent for child play. The weather was warmer than normal for October, but we still had fabulous family time. We definitely hope to return next year!!
Incredible views and tons of space
As the pictures show, the views are spectacular. Sure, a few things are a little dated, but there are also smart TVs, and the stereo is Bluetooth capable, which was great. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the gear we needed for an awesome family and friends vacation. Our kids loved running around the hills and the adults loved the porch and all the available tech & the kitchen. We loved the huge dining area as well. Plenty of space for everyone at the table. The living space with the gorgeous windows was really a highlight. Those high ceilings are perfect and would be comfortable for a giraffe! Great stay. Thank you!
mountain views, privacy and ammenities!
Had a great stay with 3 couples at the house. Perfect place to relax, hang on the porch or use the hot tub. Not too far away from Asheville for a bit of action. The house was well appointed, clean and just as advertised. The mountain views were everything we wanted.
Only 18 miles to the heart of downtown Asheville (~25 minutes if not driving at rush hour), this property is a peaceful and private retreat. The charming town of Weaverville is less than 10 miles and offers restaurants, shops, galleries, grocery, pharmacies, and banking.
