The bathroom has a walk in tile shower and a marble topped vanity. After a day of sightseeing you can enjoy a home cooked meal in the well equipped kitchen or throw a steak on the grill outside on the rock patio. On a cool evening you might enjoy a fire in the wood stove. The entire cabin is decorated with artwork from local artists. There are 2 TV's with Dish Network just in case the kids want to watch something different. WI-FI is also provided.

About Sheila Fox

My husband Steve and I built this cabin in the Fall of 2012. We are both from the Asheville area and love the mountains. As travelers ourselves, we built this cabin with you in mind. Taking care to make it a place you and your family will want to come back to again and again. Every season here has something to offer. From the beauty of Spring to the quietness of a Winter snow, there is something here for everyone.

Why Sheila Fox chose Asheville Area

We built this cabin as a vacation rental because this area of Buncombe County is so beautiful and we wanted to share it with others. We live just 10 minutes away and have lived in our home for 21 years. This area is special because its close to downtown, yet far enough away to enjoy nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay. It was cozy and quiet. We had everything we needed. Thank you.

Perfect get-away for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay over the holidays since most of our family is in the Carolinas and we're living in Cleveland, OH. The location was perfect and what a great value! The house was immaculate and very functionally laid out. We had everything we needed including plenty of towels, dishes, utensils, and even condiments, which was really nice. The surroundings were nice and quiet and there was lots of room for our dog, Buster to run, which he loved. We hope to return again in the near future.

Would love to stay again

  • 5 of 5

Clean and tidy. The owners were pleasant and responsive. Our kids loved the bunk beds and loft. Everything you need.....fridge, plates, coffee, washer, dryer...... Better than a hotel in my opinion. Pet friendly and our dog enjoyed that he could roam around outside too. Felt secluded. But easy drive to Asheville and Biltmore Estate. Had a wonderful visit there. The pictures don't do it justice.

Grey Fox Cabin was great!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our six-night stay at Grey Fox Cabin! It's great to have a location that is pet-friendly. The property was clean and well-maintained and the owner is very friendly and helpful. The cabin was beautiful and private with excellent kitchen amenities. It's the perfect get-away spot in the Leicester, NC area!

Private and pleasant

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Grey Fox for a couple of nights with our three dogs and found the cabin to be a very pleasant place for all of us to relax comfortably.

There's ample room around the cabin for dogs and kids to run around. It was sadly too cold for us to enjoy any porch time but when the weather is warmer that would be an extra benefit.

The kitchen is well equipped to make a full meal or just to microwave food.

The beds are comfortable and the bed in the loft was very popular with us. And the decor of the cabin is very nice throughout.

Definitely would recommend!

Beautiful Cabin in the woods...

  • 5 of 5

We went up for a wedding and made it a vacation. We had a great time... The cabin is fully equipped with everything you will need. Very comfortable and serene.

Beautiful cool mornings...sitting outside on the porch drinking our coffee.... Definitely will stay again in the future.

We stayed at this cabin for the weekend. The cabin is absolutely beautiful and upscale. We really enjoyed the loft area and porch. The porch was perfect for our dogs. We really look forward to coming back for another stay!
