Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Sofa bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

Welcome! Come stay with us at our charming cabin and enjoy some good old Southern Appalachian hospitality. Situated on two private acres north of Asheville and less than 10 minutes from downtown Asheville.

As its largest city, along with its central location in the southern Appalachian mountains, Asheville has become the nerve center of the area simply known as 'WNC' (Western North Carolina). Set in the beautiful French Broad Valley, which flows northwest to the Mississippi basin, Asheville is surrounded by the highest mountains in eastern America, some of the oldest in the world.

The temperate climate enjoys four distinct seasons, with comfortable summers, mild winters, early spring and panoramic fall colors. The geographic features, combined with the climate, allows the area an abundance of outdoor activities from hiking to fishing to skiing and golf. A vibrant downtown Asheville offers a cultural diversity hard to find anywhere else in the US. Asheville attracts internationally known artists and is home to artists of world renown in every genre. Shops, antiques, artist's studios and restaurants, from local grills to fine dining, are all a part of what makes Asheville unique.

So...just here for a few days or for a little while longer? Remember, a whole lot of nothing to do is fine and relaxing too! Almost anything you would want to do is here or nearby (ok, there's no ocean, check out VRBO for that, y'know?). Situated between the Smokies and the Blue Ridge, Asheville makes a great home base. From Boone to Brasstown, Mt. Pisgah to Mt. Mitchell, you can get there from Abner's Cabin.

Come stay with us and see why we think our southern mountains are one of the most beautiful places in the country to visit.

About Leslie Osborne

Moving to the Western NC Mountains from Charlotte NC back in 1990 was a new venture for my family. Having lived in the area and falling in love with it, lends me to call Asheville my home. Being in sales, I get to see so many beautiful properties in the greater Asheville area and I am grateful to have an older cabin to offer folks to rent that is reminescent of the cabins I stayed in during my youth at summer camps across Western North Carolina.

Leslie Osborne purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Leslie Osborne chose Asheville Area

Abner Gwaltney built the cabin in 1928 for his wife and children. Since then, the cabin has passed through several generations of families until my parents purchased the home as their summer getaway from the heat of the lowlands of NC. I purchased the cabin in 2004 when my parents decided they could no longer make the trip to Asheville. By that time, I had moved to Asheville and decided to keep the cabin available for family memebers to use. In 2008 I decided to open the cabin to the public because of its great location to downtown Asheville.

What makes this cabin unique

Accessabilty is the greatest asset. Privacy and the rural setting that lends to a quiet and peaceful stay. Please read the reviews!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Once again we have had a wonderful time. Last time, were here in the fall, and enjoyed the cool air and beautiful fall foliage. And this time when we drove up, we saw your lovely hostas and lacy blue hydrangea. They were so vibrant and natural. Thanks once again for letting us enjoy the area by staying at Abner's Cabin. It very much makes us feel at home. We are branching out more and more to explore the area every time we come. P.S. we loved watching the wild turkeys and their babies from the front porch.

Loved the location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved having coffee on the front porch in the morning,, along with the turkeys who came to visit. Cocktails on the back porch watching the sunset were fantastic. We loved the location, central point for our agenda, hiking, breweries, downtown and the Biltmore.

Cozy little cabin.

Cabin was perfect for us. We had a motorcycle in the group, and the gravel road was a little tough, but we made it work! Would stay here again!

Exactly what we expected

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, private, serene cabin with everything we needed. Our dogs were happy, loving the big yard. Very convenient to downtown with quick, easy uber pickup. We enjoyed a fun birthday weekend here and would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, old log cabin-Quaint, peaceful

  • 4 of 5

My daughters and I got together for Mother's Day weekend at the cabin. It is as described.

A quaint, peaceful cabin tucked away outside of Asheville. Everything was clean and neat. The grounds were well kept. There is enough space between adjoining properties to feel secluded.

Downtown Asheville was just a few minutes drive away. Will stay here again.

Leslie was very accommodating. She even called us Friday evening to verify if we had enough linens.
