About the property

Modern Cedar Log Home with Year-Round Views of the Blue Ridge Mountains

For those of you who want to be close enough to Asheville that you can easily drop in, but who also prefer peace and privacy in your own little luxurious perch on top of the world, this is your spot!!

This stunningly beautiful, modern and immaculately clean cedar log home has year-round postcard-like views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, yet is only 15 minutes from the center of Asheville. Amazingly, the incredible feeling of total privacy is just minutes from the fun and funk of Asheville - so close you can catch an Uber/Lyft.

Everything about this house is well-done, yet nothing's overdone. The layout is perfect for a large cabin (1,665 sq') that's cozy and inviting, yet open and lives large.

--There's a completely modern and fully-equipped kitchen with an ideal layout for cooking as well as entertaining.

--The open living room has 20' ceilings, in-wall incredible surround sound, a cozy fireplace, and comfortable furniture.

--The dining area off the kitchen has a hardwood table and chairs that seats 6 very comfortably.

--There are two large bedrooms on the main floor that share a full bath. One bedroom has a queen bed, and the other a king (which can conveniently be separated into twins, if desired).

--The fully private master bedroom upstairs with skylights has a luxurious king bed and its own ensuite full bathroom.

--The entertainment center boasts 7.1 in-wall surround sound that provides an awesome listening experience. There is unlimited high-speed WiFi (300mbps), cable TV (with 175 channels incl. HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, NFL Network, etc.), and more than 100 DVD's at the cabin.

--There is a wraparound front and side deck with an outdoor 6-person hot tub, and a secluded back deck off the dining area with gas grill.

--And, there's a full size washer and dryer, central heat, a/c and large windows with private views from every room.

Please Note: While this cabin is pet-friendly, I want to make sure that all animals (and people!) in the house will be well-behaved and considerate. Therefore, guests must indicate on their reservation their desire to bring along a pet. The system will notify me, and will add the pet fee to your quote. No pets are permitted without prior approval.

The cabin is perfectly situated for exploring Asheville and WNC! It's an easy 11 mile drive to Pack Square at the very center of Asheville and only takes 15 minutes on well-maintained main roads.

The cabin is convenient to Asheville and all of WNC:

-- West Asheville is 10 minutes/7 miles

-- The center of Asheville is 17 minutes/11 miles

-- The Biltmore Estate is 25 minutes/14 miles

-- The Blue Ridge Parkway is 25 minutes/14 miles

-- The Appalachian Trail at Hot Springs is 1 hour/38 miles

-- Great Smoky Mountains National Park; Shining Rock Wilderness, Mills River, Linville Gorge, Mt. Mitchell, Bent Creek, Cold Mountain, etc. are only 60 minutes away.

-- River rafting/tubing/ kayaking, zip lining, rock climbing, fishing and golfing are 30 minutes or less.

-- Downhill skiing, snowboarding and tubing is 50 minutes/35 miles.

-- Cherokee is 1 hour/42 miles.

-- Waynesville is 30 minutes/23 miles away.

This cabin has it all, in the middle of it all!

J Kelly Scherer purchased this cabin in 2004

Why J Kelly Scherer chose Leicester

My mountain cabin is a rare find and one that I plan to keep for many years of enjoyment. The cabin is stunningly beautiful, immaculately clean, and truly Top of the Line. It is located just outside of Asheville, NC, one of America's coolest towns. While just 10 miles from downtown, it sits on a mountainside that looks out across endless ridges of mountains and valleys dotted with farmland and estates. It has the best of all worlds - private in its location, and close to everything that Asheville has to offer!

What makes this cabin unique

The mountain cabin is at the end of a private road, perched high on a mountainside, with unobstructed year-round views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its open floor plan and peaceful setting make it perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the Blue Ridge. The house is immaculately clean and tidy.

The cabin is perfectly situated for exploring Asheville and WNC!

The cabin is only 11 miles from Pack Square in the very center of Asheville. The picturesque drive into town takes 15 minutes on main roads.

The cabin sits in the middle of hundreds of world class hiking and biking trails. All are an easy 30 to 60 minutes' drive away, door to trailhead. The Appalachian Trail at Hot Springs is 35 minutes. Great Smoky Mountains National Park; Shining Rock Wilderness, Mills River, Linville Gorge, Mt. Mitchell, Bent Creek, Cold Mountain, etc. are all 40 minutes. The Blue Ridge Parkway is 25 minutes and there are multiple trails off it.

River rafting/tubing/ kayaking, zip lining, rock climbing, fishing and golfing are 30 minutes or less. Downhill skiing, snowboarding and tubing is 35 miles from the cabin.

The Biltmore Estate is only 25 minutes away. Stay one week and receive a free day-pass to Biltmore! Waynesville is 25 minutes. And, Cherokee is 45 minutes.

Being just outside of Asheville allows you to feel away from it all but also be right in the middle of everything.

Beautiful Home with an Equally Impressive View

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay! Kelly was super responsive and we appreciated the personalized directions and details. The house was spotless and comfortable. The views are incredible. So much so that we decided to stay in on Saturday night just to watch the sun set behind the mountains. Morning views are equally impressive. Everything exceeded our expectations. Thank you for a wonderful stay at this amazing property!

Asheville mountain retreat was very relaxing and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin with beautiful views. We spent a good deal of time in Asheville so the drive was a little tiresome, but we expected it and not so bad as to detract for our enjoyment. Nice being “isolated” actually. The one area that needs some upgrades are the bath room towels, hand towels and wash clothes. Overall really enjoyed the stay.

We loved staying here. Everything we needed was provided and the house was was like home away from home. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us. The peaceful atmosphere was just what we needed, including watching the fireflies from the porch at night! The owner was very helpful and ensured our stay was great. Thanks again!

Peaceful, exceptionally clean and well decorated

  • 5 of 5

Close to Asheville yet removed enough to be in the mountains. Felt serene. Drive up is just something to get used to and well worth it!

This beautiful cabin is located just 10 easy miles from the center of Asheville - so close that you can drop in to the city in minutes. But, while the mountain cabin lies just outside of Asheville, its peace and serenity feels like you're miles from anywhere. So, you'll want to plan to spend some time at the cabin just relaxing in its luxurious accommodations, peace and beauty.

But, you'll also be glad you're so close to Asheville because it is one of America’s gems! Asheville enjoys a beautiful setting, nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a temperate climate, and a tolerant, diverse people. Asheville has a thriving arts community, numerous outstanding restaurants, local wineries and breweries, year-round festivals, and a multitude of outdoor activities including hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, rock-climbing, skiing, snowboarding, and sightseeing.

America’s Largest Home, the Biltmore Estate is only 13 miles away! It is absolutely amazing to behold, and its popularity is well-deserved.

The Blue Ridge Parkway, one of America’s most scenic drives winds through Asheville to Mount Mitchell, the highest mountain in the eastern United States.

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is only 30 minutes from the cabin.

There is so much to do in and around Asheville, you'll honestly wish you could spend more time here. But one thing that's certain, you'll enjoy every moment you spend at this beautiful and relaxing mountain cabin.
