2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom with Mountain Views / WiFi
Why Lisa Gurney chose Fairview
We absolutely love the Asheville area - the mountains, endless outdoor activities and 4 distinct seasons allow us to appreciate and fully enjoy nature year-round. When we met as teenagers, we dreamed of one day building our own mountain escape (with a fabulous view, of course). We were involved with every aspect of the building process; from the beginning stages of staking out the property lines and house site in the snow to personally delivering almost every nail, bolt and load of lumber. Our hearts and souls were poured into this cabin while attempting to balance our full-time jobs, lives and every detail of the project...but every minute was worth it, without a doubt.
What makes this Cabin unique
With the cabin facing South, year-round natural light invites guests to gather in the living area and relax on the decks. As is the case in much of Asheville, the roads around our cabin tend to be steeper than what many people are used to. Our driveway is steep and narrow in sections (about 300 yards from the bottom to top). Access is not a problem, however, and we both own small 2wd vehicles that do just fine around Asheville and our cabin. We also have stairs leading from the driveway to the cabin door, which, for those with mobility issues, may pose a problem. The cabin is located within a private community, in which Rules and Regulations apply to residents and visitors. This makes for a truly quiet and relaxing stay in the mountains. Please note that noise, privacy, parking and other rules must be respected throughout the private community.

Breathtaking views. Removed from the rest of the city, but close enough to enjoy Asheville’s offerings. Cabin was spotless and Lisa and Jay even welcomed us with a bottle of wine. From morning coffee sunrises to champagne sipping in the hot tub, this place is perfect for a honeymoon getaway! Definitely recommend and will be back!
Remote but close to everything
Everything was super - communication in advance of our stay so we knew what to expect, the house itself, and the area. Lots of people commented on the driveway and, honestly it’s fine. Steep, but paved. The house is high in a remote valley with excellent views from the deck, and complete peace and quiet, but its’s still only 15 mins from a supermarket and 20 mins to Asheville.
House is beautiful. Yes, lots of steps up, but well worth it. Everything you might need for your stay, lovely bottle of wine and personalized note greeting you. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.
Lazy Bear Cabin was fantastic! It was everything that we could have hoped for and more. The cabin is beautifully done and well maintained. It's situated in an ideal location that provides a secluded mountain top feel, while still being close to downtown Asheville and all of the nearby hiking spots, etc. We look forward to returning in the future!!
Lazy Bear Success
We had such a great time! The cabin was meticulously cleaned and organized. Views from the cabin were everything we invisioned and all that we hoped for. Thanks so much for everything and for making our get away that much easier and relaxing!
Hiking in the morning, hot tub in the afternoon and Asheville in the evening. Great location for all the Asheville area attractions. Views as advertised...
Incredible vacation spot
Lisa and her property are the best! She was very attentive, provided prompt assistance, and the property was everything it was advertised to be. Additionally, her cleaning lady has the utmost character and honesty. We had left expensive items at the home and upon departure we were immediately notified. I WILL return next year providing this property is available. Thank you LIsa and Rosie for a job incredibly well done. It was a privilege and pleasure to stay at your home. Thank you.
The Asheville area is an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. So much to see and do: cruise the Blue Ridge Parkway, hike the Appalachian trail, mountain bike in Pisgah National Forest, tube or kayak the French Broad or other numerous rivers, climb Chimney Rock (or ride the elevator to the top), swim and paddle Lake Lure, fish, hunt, or bird-watch. The outdoor activities are endless.
Asheville is also well-known for the locals' love of art, antiques, good beer and fine cuisine. With a multitude of art galleries, micro breweries and wide array of restaurants, Biltmore Estate and the Blue Ridge Parkway are only the beginning of a true Asheville experience.
