Only 15 minutes drive from Asheville, less than 5 miles from Black Mountain in Beautiful Western North Carolina! The property is adjacent to the Pisgah National Forest. Very nearby attractions include The gorgeous Blue Ridge Parkway, Grandfather Mountain, Mount Mitchell, horseback riding, white water rafting, tours of Biltmore Estates, Mining for gems and gold, fishing, hiking, Linville Falls and Caverns, shopping in the arts and crafts town of Black Mountain, restaurants, libraries, and much, much more! Yet, you would never believe you were that close to civilization. This cabin is surrounded by trees, and gorgeous views of the mountains. The setting is serene and restful to the max! Please be aware there is about three quarters of a mile of gravel road (good condition and not difficult), and this property sits on an incline (about 9 degrees) however our street is paved.

I retired in 2007 after 35 years of teaching at the University of Central Florida. My wife, is 'partially retired' as a forensic economist. We had intended to split our living between Florida and North Carolina but my wife's occupation did not permit us to do so.
The area is secluded yet only a few minutes and about 3 miles from the Interstate 40. my wife is primarily responsible for the interior design and decor (much of which we brought back from trips abroad). The folks who clean our home to an outstanding job.
