Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Asheville

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Appalachia at its best. A mountain cabin re-created within the basement (first floor, ground level) of my home for your pleasure. Private entrance(s), covered deck/patio, open deck, great view, very private setting.

The location has an East-West orientation, with beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Great place to sit, relax, and enjoy your favorite beverage.

The cabin is fully self contained. It has its own kitchen, bath with shower (no tub), and a small living/dining area. One bedroom with a king size bed.

Centrally located between I-40 and I-26, on Busbee Mountain, the property borders the Biltmore Estate and blends in with the Blue Ridge Parkway at an elevation of 3,346 feet.

Well behaved pets are more than welcome!

I have had the cabin off line since August making repairs and doing some remodel. The cabin is open for business as of December 10, 2014. Updated photos have been added.

About George Stanley

I am retired. I enjoy my two cats, Olly and Geo.

I retired from the Community College System and enjoy meeting people, thus the rental.

I enjoy traveling and finding neat places. I hope I have created one here.

George Stanley purchased this apartment in 2007

Why George Stanley chose Asheville

I had a half -finished basement when I purchased the home, which I separated from the house upstairs. I envisioned a downstairs cabin so others could enjoy the beautiful mountains as I do.

What makes this apartment unique

Living on a rural mountain and bordering the Biltmore Estate Property, there is an abundance of wildlife - turkey, deer, pheasants, bear, raccoons, generally all sorts of wildlife. I have pictures of bear in the yard and in close-by trees.

At an elevation of 3,346 feet, the cabin overlooks a huge valley. The valley is often filled with fog, creating a beautiful sunrise at eye-level.

From the Coast to the Mountains!

  • 5 out of 5
What a great view from this rental! We have a photography business and came up from the coast to take pictures of the leaves changing in NC. We only had to go to the deck to see the beauty of what we came to photograph. It is located at the top of the crest. Mr. Stanley was there to tell us what peaks we were seeing and he is very good company too. We had our dogs and he was very accommodating with everything! We have made a new friend and will come back to see him!

What a wonderful place!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at George's cabin for our honeymoon, and were SO happy with it! It was clean and pretty and homey inside, and George was extremely helpful and kind. We cooked a lot in the cabin, and George even graciously came down once to help us re-light the pilot on the gas stove. :) We really enjoyed how close the cabin was to Asheville, and made quite a few trips to coffee shops and stores in downtown Asheville, as well as walking the River Arts District. And a nice grocery store (Ingles) was very close by as well. We also made the 45-min trip to Chimney rock, and another to hike Mt. Pisgah. Both were so worth it! We really enjoyed the beautiful views off the front porch also. Be prepared though for some hairpin turns on the road leading up to the cabin! But it's worth the views. :) Additionally, we changed our plans and left a night early and George refunded us, which was unexpected and extremely kind. Overall, we were so happy and would definitely return!

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wedding to attend on Sat. in Asheville so we made a weekend out of it with our dogs and had a great time relaxing at the cabin & hiking at Chimney Rock. The views from the room are beautiful and it was a perfect space for my husband and I.

Perfect Anniversary!

  • 5 out of 5
The view was amazing and the cabin was perfect for my husband and I. It's located on the side of a mountain which was the most exciting thing in the world to me considering this was my first time ever even seeing one! You can bet that we will be coming back again and next time bringing our little girl. Truely one of the best vacations I've had in a long time.

Wonderful View

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The view off the deck was fabulous.
Bed was comfortable. If you are average size, you may just fit in the shower.

What a beautiful place in the clouds! like being on top of the world. Peaceful and quiet, close to nature, a real NC mountain experience. George thought of everything, from coffee to towels. Wonderful covered porch. Close to all activities. A friendly place.
