Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Arden - The Sanctuary

Breathtaking views, total tranquility, come enjoy the mountains at their most serene. This home is a 4 bedroom 4 bath log cabin (Montana logs ) The 4th bedroom is a spacious loft over the detached garage . It has a refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and toaster and full bath. The cabin is located on 20 acres just a short distance from downtown Asheville as well as lots of other wonderful attractions. ......Hiking trails and beautiful mountain views...The home is situated down an asphalt 700 foot easy grade (less than 7 degrees) driveway.

About Tamara

My name is Daryl and my girlfriend's name is Tamara. I am a graduate of the University of Florida(Go Gators) and Tamara Towson State University and Stevenson University in Md. We live in Jacksonville, Fl. and divide our time between there, our lake house on Kingsley Lake , and our beautiful cabin in Asheville, NC. In addition to real estate I own an engineering firm. We have 4 college age boys between us. (Ole Miss, U of Ark, U of North Florida.)

Tamara purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Tamara chose Arden

After many years of visiting North Carolina ,I chose Asheville for it's eclectic,scenic, mountainous, and pure natural beauty. I also love it's proximity to numerous outdoor activities. I figured that if it's good enough for the Vanderbilts it's good enough for myself and my family. I chose this particular location for it's views , wildlife, mountain stream and hiking trails. It took 2 years to build and I continue to enjoy further improving the property. I have added an organic farm, (new 2 bd 2 br cabin being built here ) a Japanese garden, a fruit orchard and a solar panel system is in the works.

What makes this cabin unique

VERY CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN ASHEVILLE...THE BILTMORE...AND VARIOUS ATTRACTIONS.....WITH THE NEW CABIN IT CAN BE RENTED AS A 6 BEDROOM RETREAT WITH MAXIMUM PRIVACY ENSURED.

Very nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

We had two families with six small children meet at this cabin for two nights. The cabin is very nice, clean, private, and has nice amenities. Plenty of room to play outside, a basketball hoop, a stream, a porch swing, and a fire pit were all perfect for a relaxing stay. The loft area in the main cabin worked well for us to use as an extra sleeping area, we brought an air mattress that was useful. Beds are comfortable, and the extra window ledge type beds were a hit with the kids. We did not use the loft over the garage that was not connected to the main cabin, but it was nice also. We didn't realize there was not a TV in the living room, but the loft had a nice one that the kids watched movies on. The back porch was a great place to eat meals at the picnic table. Only a 10-15 minute drive to get to plenty of grocery stores, restaurants, and shops. We went to the Biltmore and it was only an approx 20 minute drive. Definitely a good place to stay.

Paradise is right!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this property and the owners were great to work with! It was the perfect location to bring our family together for Thanksgiving! It was close to Asheville so we were able to enjoy a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving morning and the Biltmore Estate for the Christmas lights at night. The property was very private so provided just the relaxation we needed. Our first annual Thanksgiving Day flag football game was held in the backyard where there is tons of space. The bedrooms and kitchen were nicely appointed and gave us all the space and amenities we needed. My only regret is that we could not stay longer! Already talking about returning next year!

Great base camp for Asheville vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from a week at this property. It was a beautiful location, clean and well-kept. We had two little glitches during our stay and the property owners were super quick to address our concerns. Unexpected things can always happen on vacation, and it's a testament to the home owners that they came through quickly, and professionally. They were great! The layout of the house worked well for our group of four. Some of us could be watching TV in the 2nd floor loft, and still carry on conversations with those downstairs hanging out by the picture windows. There was enough room for all. This house was centrally located to all the things we wanted to do. Most activities were no more than 20-30 minutes away. While staying at this rental we ate in Asheville (Highly recommend Biscuit Head, Edison at Grove Park Inn, and 12 Bones BBQ), went whitewater rafting on the French Broad River with Nantahala Outdoor Center, ziplining with Navitat Canopy Adventures (try their "Blue Ridge Experience"), climbed up Chimney Rock, went hiking to see Hooker/Triple/High Falls in Dupont State Forest, went gem "mining" at Elijah Mountain Gems (good activity for little kids), visited the Biltmore (ate at Cedric's Tavern while on the Biltmore grounds), and generally explored the area. I would absolutely stay here again, and recommend the house to friends.

Mountain Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous Vacation Home. Traveled to Asheville for wedding and added additional vacation days to spend in Asheville and Biltmore Estate. Very attractive and clean log home in lovely wooded setting. Peaceful and quite, yet only 20 min from downtown Asheville and many other regional attractions. Had minor issue with AC, but one call to homeowner and was rectifed next day. Great customer service! Highly recommend to anyone wanting fresh mountain air and lovely views of blue ridge. Be sure to hike Mt Pisgah - the view is stupendous. Much better than staying at a hotel in town.
