This stunningly beautiful, modern and immaculately clean cedar log home has year-round postcard-like views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, yet is only 15 minutes from downtown Asheville. The cabin has every comfort in an ideal proximity to Asheville and WNC.

Everything about this house is well-done, yet nothing's overdone. The cabin has all you'll need and want.

--The entertainment center boasts 7.1 in-wall surround sound that provides an awesome listening experience.

The cabin is perfectly situated for exploring Asheville and WNC! It's an easy 11 mile drive to Pack Square at the very center of Asheville and only takes 15 minutes on well-maintained main roads.

About J Kelly Scherer

My name is Kelly and I live in Charlotte, NC. I'm a hard-working, peace-loving individual who enjoys the serenity of the mountains. I am a private owner and maintain the property myself, with personal care and interest. I come from a large family and always appreciate a sense of family among friends. I'm sure that you, like everyone who visits, will absolutely love and cherish the time you spend at my mountain cabin!

J Kelly Scherer purchased this cabin in 2004

Why J Kelly Scherer chose Asheville Area

My mountain cabin is a rare find and one that I plan to keep for many years of enjoyment. The cabin is gorgeous, immaculate, serene, and lacks for nothing. It is located just outside of Asheville, NC, one of America's coolest towns. While just 10 miles from downtown, it sits on a mountainside that looks out across multiple ridges of mountains and valleys dotted with farmland and estates. It has the best of all worlds - private in its location, and close to everything that Asheville has to offer!

What makes this cabin unique

The mountain cabin is at the end of a private road, perched high on a mountainside, with unobstructed year-round views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its open floor plan and peaceful setting make it perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the Blue Ridge. The house is immaculately clean and tidy.

The cabin is perfectly situated for exploring Asheville and WNC!

The cabin is only 11 miles from Pack Square in the very center of Asheville. The picturesque drive into town takes 15 minutes on main roads.

The cabin sits in the middle of hundreds of world class hiking and biking trails. All are an easy 30 to 60 minutes' drive away, door to trailhead. The Appalachian Trail at Hot Springs is 35 minutes. Great Smoky Mountains National Park; Shining Rock Wilderness, Mills River, Linville Gorge, Mt. Mitchell, Bent Creek, Cold Mountain, etc. are all 40 minutes. The Blue Ridge Parkway is 25 minutes and there are multiple trails off it.

River rafting/tubing/ kayaking, zip lining, rock climbing, fishing and golfing are 30 minutes or less. Downhill skiing, snowboarding and tubing is 35 miles from the cabin.

The Biltmore Estate is only 25 minutes away. Stay one week and receive a free day-pass to Biltmore! Waynesville is 25 minutes. And, Cherokee is 45 minutes.

Being just outside of Asheville allows you to feel away from it all but also be right in the middle of everything.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Kelly,

Thank you for a wonderful weekend at your fabulous cabin. We met three old friends from Chapel Hill. The house was great, we were very impressed with the way the house was outfitted. Many homes for rent claim they are well stocked just bring clothes and groceries. Most houses do not live up to their claims....Your home surpassed expectations...I am a professional Chef and I found the kitchen to be very well outfitted from nice pots and pans to specialty cocktail glasses and a blended that was in great shape.

We enjoyed the incredible views and nice sound system while we had a few beers before the show. After the music we took our old bones to the hot tub for some relaxing before the night ended.

Thanks to Kelly for the hospitality and the great directions/instructions to access the cabin. We will use you again for sure!

Sincerely

Steve and Kate Birgel

Boone, NC

Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Kelly's home with my wife and a couple of family/friends this past Labor Day weekend. I don't think it could have been a better vacation, unless it had been about 7 days instead of 3. We couldn't get enough of the view from the property - it is awesome. The house is the last one on a steep, winding dead-end road, and it is very private. The beds were very comfortable, the house was spotless, the hot-tub was great and the sound system is amazing. It is about 15-20 minutes to get into downtown Asheville, which we visited for a couple of hours both afternoons we were there. If you haven't visited Asheville before, it is a very unique town. There seemed to be plenty of great breweries and restaurants. But honestly you may be like us and just end up spending most of your time enjoying the view and peace and hot tub that Kelly's home has to offer. I would absolutely recommend.

Great cabin, perfect location and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a girls weekend! Loved the cabin, the location and the view! The cabin was clean and very nice! The location was perfect - only 15 minutes from downtown and not far from Biltmore! Kelly was great! He always responded to my questions quickly, which I appreciated since this was my first experience on VRBO. I would rent from Kelly again!

Beauty, comfort, & amazing views!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin; it was clean & had all the amenities we needed. The kitchen & living area was spacious & inviting. We enjoyed visiting Asheville, found many of the restaurants to be dog-friendly & provided plenty of Southern hospitality to us & our Dane. We would definitely recommend the cabin for a relaxing get-away with beautiful views!

This beautiful cabin is located just 10 easy miles from downtown Asheville - so close that you can drop in to the city in minutes. But, what is so amazing is that, while the mountain cabin lies just outside of Asheville, its peace and serenity feels like you're miles from anywhere. So, plan to spend some time at the cabin relaxing in its luxurious accommodations, peace and beauty.

But, you'll also be glad you're so close to Asheville because it is one of America’s gems! Asheville enjoys a beautiful setting, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a temperate climate, and a tolerant, diverse people. Asheville has a thriving arts community, numerous outstanding restaurants, local wineries and breweries, year-round festivals, and a multitude of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, rock-climbing, skiing, snowboarding, and sightseeing.

America’s Largest Home, the Biltmore Estate is only 13 miles away! It is absolutely amazing to behold, and its popularity is well-deserved.

The Blue Ridge Parkway, one of America’s most scenic drives winds through Asheville to Mount Mitchell, the highest mountain in the eastern United States.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is only 30 minutes from the cabin. It is America's most visited national park, and the United Nations has designated Great Smoky Mountains National Park as an International Biosphere Reserve. The Great Smoky Mountains are among the oldest mountains in the world, formed 200-300 million years ago with an unmatched biodiversity.

There is so much to do in and around Asheville, you'll honestly wish you could spend more time here. But one thing that's certain, you'll enjoy every moment you spend at this beautiful and relaxing mountain cabin.
