We live and work at Oakland Cottage Bed and Breakfast in Asheville, just one mile from the Biltmore Estate and about 7 miles from Avondale Ridge. We are natives of NC and have worked and lived in the Asheville area since the late 1980s. In our 'pre-parent' years we were climbing guides and river guides for local companies in western NC (North Carolina Outward Bound School, Eagle's Nest Camp, Nantahala Outdoor Center, Appalachian Mountain Guides,...), so we know a lot about what to do and where to go in the out of doors in the area. We started a family in 1999 with the adoption of John Andrei (from Russia), and have enjoyed staying at home a bit more as we raise our family. We all bike fairly extensively in the area as a form of recreation and have bicycled the Blue Ridge Parkway, end to end (400 plus miles) in part and in whole on many occassions. We love this area and hope we can help you enjoy it too!
Owner/Manager purchased this cabin in 2004
Why Owner/Manager chose Asheville
Avondale Ridge borders the Blue Ridge Parkway and has lovely westerly views, yet is pretty close to it all. Just 1.5 miles to the confluence of I-40 and I-240, getting into downtown Asheville is quick and easy, yet access to the Parkway and the out of doors is also quick and easy - the best of both worlds. We love the log cabin feel, spaciousness, views and proximity to it all!
What makes this cabin unique
Views off the decks are lovely, especially from the top floor. There are two family rooms, which makes Avondale a great place for family reunions and other gatherings.
Guestbook comments from the owner
I would like to take the time to thank you guys for making our first annual ski trip a success. Thank you Jamison, Mary, Jim, and whoever else I might forget. The Avondale was exactly as you promised and described. My favorite part was the view from the decks and having plenty of firewood accessible. They were both big hits with our team. Let’s not forget about the great “check in”. Having the key in the lock box is a great idea. The sauna, steam shower, jetted tub, and sunroom were definite pluses. Whenever we come to the Asheville area, and need lodging, you can count on us give you guys a call. Thank you
