    This property is well kept and a unique place to stay. It was close to a number of local attractions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • Beautiful area, cozy cabin!


    We loved our stay in the cabin! It was cozy and everything we needed for a weekend in the fall- loved sitting on the porch and in the little seating area near the pond. It was a great location to the blue ridge parkway and a short drive to downtown Asheville. Would definitely recommend!

  • Quiet and comfy


    Perfect place that’s quiet but close enough to Asheville to enjoy the city attractions. If you want a place that is a bit rustic but perfect for a family this is it.

  • A Nice and Cozy Cottage!


    We came to the Asheville area over Labor Day and found this to be a great place for the visit. The three bedrooms allowed each of our boys to have their own room (and us the master). The kitchen is very nice, an important feature for us, and there was room to spread out in the dining/family area. It has a very nice outdoor patio and koi pond, though we were busy enough on our short stay that we didn't make use of them. I liked that it was very close to some hiking trails and the NC arboretum, not far from Asheville itself. The 2nd bathroom is a bit small ... but it's a 2nd bathroom! We'll definitely consider this place again the next time we go to Asheville!
