About the property

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!

Easy booking online or with the owner using check or credit cards.

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 Area

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.

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view, and very quiet. Cottage was cozy and had plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the sunrise or just sit out.

Absolutely breathtaking view, private and close to town!

  • 5 of 5

Drove from hot and humid Florida to a gorgeous and cozy mountain retreat with plenty of room for two people (and our dog!). Perfect getaway and gracious host. We did not want to leave and definitely will be back. Thanks, George!

Home with a view!

George's little slice of heaven is my new happy place. It is home, but with an amazing view. I can't wait to return.

Top of the mountain gem

  • 5 of 5

With commanding views at sunset and sunrise, this cabin is a perfect Asheville getaway. The cabin is fully equipped and cozy, but you will want to be outside enjoying the mountain scenery. George and the cats are gracious hosts. Will definitely return!
