Asheville Area Cabin Rental Photos and Description

This 980 Sq. Ft. Cabin Is BRAND NEW And Only 20 Minutes From Downtown Asheville

From the moment you open the hand carved front door, you will know the Grey Fox is special. With 2 bedrooms and a loft, there is room for 6. The Master bedroom has a queen bed with French doors that open to a full length front porch that is perfect for your morning coffee. The 2nd bedroom has bunk beds that are perfect for children or adults. The loft, which overlooks the main living area, has a full size bed and is accessed by a custom built ladder. 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. Surrounded by trees, the Grey Fox is the perfect place to shake off the cares of the world and enjoy time with family and friends.

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.

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!

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.

Wonderful Cabin

  • 5 of 5

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!

Close to Asheville, Very Nice Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful cabin. Well kept and in very close proximity to Downtown. The linens were clean and the property looked new. Enough cookware to prepare a 3 course meal for 6 people. Would rent again. The only reason for 4 stars is due to the presence of ants in the kitchen at the time of our visit. The owner is very attentive, kind, and most importantly, honest. I believe that the issue will be addressed immediately and this shouldn't be a deterrent for any future visitors.

Short NC Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly wonderful little cabin hidden in the trees - we found it to be very clean and have everything thing you might need, especially coffee and sugar - what a great touch! Wonderful smelling linens and comfortable digs made this cabin just right. Sheila is so gracious and friendly. Will recommend! Thank you!
